America’s 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #4: Limitless

#4: LIMITLESS—315'8"

Eleven years after her delivery, despite being eclipsed by larger yachts, this blue-hulled lady continues to impress. Apparently so does her owner, clothing titan Leslie Wexner. A 2006 article in Slate magazine stated that he’s the exception to the Yacht of Doom Rule, which holds that "When someone who’s supposed to be looking out for

America’s 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #5: Attessa

#5: ATTESSA—302'4"

The major refit and extension of the yacht formerly known as Evergreen continues. Besides extending the LOA given here by about 26 feet, the work involves changing the decidedly Asian decor and decade-old systems. This is the first of two boats on our list owned by avid yachtsman and Montana industrialist Dennis Washington.

America’s 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #6: Tatoosh

#6: TATOOSH—301'8"

Greek residents got a good look at Tatoosh, this summer when she spent a few weeks in Athens. But the big buzz about the yacht occurred in France in May when Paul Allen (see no. 2) and his sister Jody hosted an Arabian-themed party onboard during the Cannes film festival. It was apparently quite the soiree, going until dawn

America’s 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #7: Lone Ranger

#7: LONE RANGER—255'0"

Forty-eight million dollars will get you this converted icebreaking tug, which has a 31,000-mile range. That puts far-flung corners of the globe within easier reach compared to traditional yachts. Her 43'6'' beam ensures plenty of space to relax and stow toys; in fact, she’s carried a 40-footer since her conversion in 1994.

America’s 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #8: Talitha

#8: TALITHA—247'4"

You read that name right: She’s now Talitha, not Talitha G. This summer, shortly after she emerged from a refit at Blohm + Voss that saw the construction of new funnels to hide some of her nav and communication equipment and thereby preserve her classic lines, she dropped the "G." Her longstanding Web site, talitha-g.com,

America’s 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #9: Laurel

#9: LAUREL—240'0"

If you ever see Laurel, be sure to say hello to the littlest "crewmember," a toddler, who’s the daughter of the captain and the purser. The yacht was built with a nursery to keep the couple happy in case they wanted to start a family. Prior to arriving in Australia, this family and the family-oriented vessel have visited Maine,

America’s 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #10: Utopia

#10: UTOPIA—234'9"

Despite sarcastic suggestions by Wall Street watchers who want him to sell his toys and prop up their stock holdings, Bill Miller, the Legg Mason Value Trust fund manager, doesn’t have his yacht for sale. The yacht has two VIP staterooms on the main deck, the owner’s suite up one deck from there, and three more twin-bed staterooms (one

America’s 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #12: Reverie

#12: REVERIE —229'7"

Seems pretty silly to have a gym aboard a yacht with seven decks-after all, if you can’t get a workout running up and down the stairs, nothing will do the trick-but it’s hard to argue with the view Reverie’s gym boasts. Since it’s up one level from the main deck and aft, it gives you the

America's 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #13: Martha Ann

#13: MARTHA ANN—229'6"

Even though all the guest staterooms on this new yacht’s lower deck feature king-size beds, no doubt someone’s going to make a run for the queen-equipped VIP, considering the cabin is just forward of the skylounge on the bridge deck. No worries if guests want to visit with each other: A circular glass

America’s 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #14: Attessa

#14: ATTESSA—225'0"

Owned by Dennis Washington (see no. 5), the "small" Attessa on our list has a private cinema and, in the bridge-deck saloon, an antique marble fireplace. She’s solely for private use, and you’re apt to see her cruising up and down the Pacific shoreline of North America.

America’s 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #15: Lady Anne

#15: LADY ANNE—224'7"

Venice, Italy, is one of the European cities Lady Anne visited this summer. Apparently the owners are big fans of cooking, so they have their own galley in their suite. There’s also a hibachi next to the traditional barbecue on an aft deck. Should anyone wish to depart the yacht for dinner, a custom Serenella limousine tender

America’s 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #16: Kismet

#16: KISMET—223'1"

Persian carvings flank the elevator in Kismet’s lobby, just outside the master suite. Guests have no reason to complain about their accommodations, considering the four staterooms are each 323 square feet. And there’s also a massage room aboard.
