World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #10: Le Grand Bleu

#10: LE GRAND BLEU—370'0"

Who needs tenders like PWCs and rubber ducks? Le Grand Bleu has a 74-foot sailboat and a 67-foot speedboat, both stowed on her vast aft deck along with a helicopter. Eugene Shvidler, an asset-management and oil billionare from Russia who became an American citizen two decades ago, reportedly received the yacht as a gift in 2006. From whom? Roman Abramovich (see Pelorus, no. 9), who also has a share in the asset-management company he runs. (And to think, our friends give us only T-shirts...)
