World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #36: Delphine

#36: DELPHINE—257'8"

Carpet, furnishings, and other decorative items aboard this restored classic are all replicas of the originals that were aboard in the 1920's. It took six years and reportedly $60 million to bring Delphine back to shape. She's been chartered by some of the world's wealthiest individuals, but come September she'll have yet another special charter client onboard, for a wedding: Alexander Dodge, the great-grandson of the original owner, Horace Dodge. Horace Dodge also happened to found Dodge Motor Co.
