The PMY 100: 2014

The 100 Largest Yachts in the World. 

You wanted it, you got it! We compiled a list of the 100 largest, most expensive, most opulent megayachts in the entire world, complete with specs and pictures.

The World’s 100 Largest Yachts - 2013

As Power & Motoryacht’s annual list of the largest yachts in the world has evolved over the years, one thing has stayed the same: These yachts are the very elite members of a very exclusive club, and the latest additions to the list exhibit feats of naval architecture, engineering, and stylish design that astound the eye and boggle the mind. Take a look at this year’s PMY 100 to see what’s new, and also remember what the list looked like in years past.

The World’s 100 Largest Yachts - 2012

Welcome to the 27th annual edition of The World’s 100 Largest Yachts, a.k.a. the PMY 100. Yes, you read that right. Twenty-seven consecutive years of breaking out our tape measures and trying to confirm every last inch of 100 different yachts docked around the globe.

Megayachts Get Larger and Larger

As megayachts get larger and larger, the yachts on previous versions of the PMY 100 have slid down the list. And each year the boat at number 100 gets a bit larger: This year’s number 100, Coral Island, fell eight spots from number 92 last year. We chart the path of some special yachts as they travel down our list over the years here.

The PMY 100 Largest Yachts 2011

When fans of The PMY 100 open their August issue, the first thing they check is whether there’s a new No. 1. This year there isn’t: Eclipse holds that spot just as she did last year. And it’s not unusual for a yacht to repeat. Savarona held the top spot through the ’90s before being slowly bumped down the list in 2003 by Octopus, which held No. 1 for two

PMY 100 Largest Yachts, 2010

For the past 25 years, Power & Motoryacht has scoured the globe for information on the world’s 100 largest yachts. And in that time, a lot has changed. In August 1985, when the list began, we wrote, “There are only about 300 private yachts over 100 feet in length in the world.” Today a 100-foot vessel not only wouldn’t make the list, she’d be smaller

100 Largest Yachts 2009 #82: Attessa

Attessa | 225'0" ( 71 )

Billionaire industrialist, shipping magnate, and true boat lover Dennis Washington owns this 226-foot beauty, which has a storied past despite her youthful appearance. She was originally launched in 1998 as the 203-foot Feadship Lady Avila. In May 2001, during a passage from Thailand to Rhodes, she caught fire

100 Largest Yachts 2009 #78: Martha Ann

Martha Ann | 229'6" ( 67 ) ( tie )

Martha Ann’s a globe-trotter of the first order. Since her launch in December 2007, she’s already made landfall in a host of palm-fringed ports in the Bahamas and western Caribbean. One of her most spottable attributes is her striking blue hull, a color not shared by sisterships Apoise (89)

100 Largest Yachts 2009 #65: Predator

Predator | 238'8" ( 54 )

At first glance Predator may seem like something out of a Jules Verne novel, but she is very real and very eye-catching. Her axe-bow design is actually a throwback to ships of the 1800’s, but by no means an exercise in nostalgia. According to Feadship, about six years ago it investigated the possibility of

100 Largest Yachts 2009 #31: Vibrant Curiosity

Vibrant Curiosity | 280'4"

Talk about pedigree. Vibrant Curiosity is the fourth in Oceanco’s line of Y700-code yachts, which means she counts as sisterships fellow Top 100-ers like Alfa Nero (35) and Amevi (39). And though Oceanco says the sleek appearance of this full-displacement, deeply flared beauty mixes “luxury” and “sobriety,” we

World's 100 Largest Yachts 2009

There’s no denying that, economically speaking, this has been a turbulent year all over the world. And yet flipping through the 2009 edition of "The Power & Motoryacht 100" you’d hardly know it. That’s because this year’s lineup of the world’s 100 largest yachts features more than ten humungous newcomers—some conversions, some new-builds, all of them

World's 100 Largest Yachts 2008

Missile detection systems. Fifty Navy SEALs and/or Royal SAS servicemen as crewmembers. Escape pods that jettison under water to let their high-profile owners get away from paparazzi or pirates. These are just some of the crazy concepts the mainstream media has about megayachts.
