World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2006 #7: Atlantis II
#7: ATLANTIS II—379’7”
When the Greek shipping tycoon Stavros Niarchos was alive, he commissioned this yacht as a replacement for one he gave to Saudi Arabia’s King Fahd. Atlantis II remains in the hands of the Niarchos family and is nearly always tied stern-to in Monaco’s Port Hercule. She did leave the marina briefly in May, however, in the days prior to the Monaco Grand Prix and headed to Barcelona.
