World's 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #45: Talitha G

#45: TALITHA G—247'4"

Talitha G underwent one heckuva refit last winter in Germany. Not only were parts of the interior gutted, but the original funnels were taken off the yacht, replaced with new ones. The crew—who seem to be a riotously funny lot, judging from their blog—thought it would be great fun to auction the original funnels off on eBay. There weren't any takers, but plenty of people checked ‘em out, both there and on the blog. One person even commented on the blog, "they would make fine water cisterns." The yacht is now back in action chartering in the Med.
