World's 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #41: Samar
When Samar was commissioned, she represented the largest yacht to be built in the UK since Britannia was launched. On her uppermost deck, a helicopter is stowed aft, while a Jacuzzi that can accommodate a crowd is forward. Among our favorite features of hers are the leather-lined pedestal chairs that are positioned next to the spa pool. Even better, the chairs can recline, for the utmost in comfort while catching some rays (or relaxing in shade, thanks to a bimini that can cover the entire area). You can test one out yourself, as Samar entered the charter market for the first time last fall; her weekly rate is 650,000 euros (about $1.02 million at presstime).
