World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #1: Al Salamah

#1: AL SALAMAH—456'10"

When it comes to private yachts, oftentimes a small group of people is paid to keep quiet. But in reference to this nearly 500-footer, a lot of people seem to be getting paid—and apparently pretty well—because few details (well, at least reasonably reliable ones) have come out. We know she spends most of her time in the Gulf, and a few reports state she has more than 80 rooms and a crew of 96. Some reports also have her equipped with an indoor swimming pool. Al Salamah is owned by the Saudi Arabian defense minister, Prince Sultan bin Abdul Aziz.
