World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2006 #35: Talitha G
#35: TALITHA G—247’4”
Visit Talitha G, and you’ll learn fun facts like: the engineer’s nickname is Banjo (due to his love of the instrument); the chief stewardess claims to have one of the largest collections of “desiccated wasps”; and a deckhand is one heckuva dancer. You’ll also find out that the captain has been with the yacht in a variety of roles for the past 13 years, so repeat charter clients have enjoyed seeing a familiar face on their visits. Be sure to click on the link to Talitha G’s live Web cam, too; when we did in May, she was crossing the Atlantic under fair skies, and in June she was enjoying the warm breezes in the South of France.
