World's 100 Largest Yachts 2007 #49: RM Elegant
#49: RM ELEGANT—237'5"
Hip-hop megamogul Sean "Diddy" Combs threw a bash for a few dozen friends and associates aboard this charter yacht last summer. If you believe everything you read in the papers, then he had a helluva good time: The New York Post reported that he partied well past dawn onboard and was so tired that he woke up several hours after he'd planned to show up for his famous White Party (where all attendees wear white). You can party like a rock star onboard yourself for 455,000 euro per week (about $619,000 at presstime).

Yachts and celebs go hand in hand these days, so you probably won’t be surprised to learn that Diddy isn't the only heavy hitter to step aboard RM Elegant. In May, during the Cannes Film Festival, the cast of the new movie Ocean's Thirteen came aboard for a fundraiser for Not on Our Watch, a group raising awareness of abuses in Darfur. Gossip magazine OK! had the exclusive story and photo spread, making a big deal about how everyone was barefoot aboard. (Silly celeb writers: Everyone knows that even gorgeous George Clooney can track dirt on a carpet.) —Diane M. Byrne
