World's 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #67: Martha Ann
#67: MARTHA ANN—229'6"
Talk about stepping up to the plate: The American who took delivery of this new yacht in May previously owned a 140-footer. The yacht was code-named Shark, part of a multiyacht deal that also included code names Nemo and Marlin. (The person who commissioned them subsequently sold each contract prior to delivery.) That also explains why she bears resemblance to St. Nicolas (no. 68). A deep-blue hull makes her stand out in the harbor, and a sports bar/gym on her upper deck and a VIP suite on the bridge deck are among the reasons why her interior is distinctive.
