America’s 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #7: Lone Ranger

#7: LONE RANGER—255'0"

Forty-eight million dollars will get you this converted icebreaking tug, which has a 31,000-mile range. That puts far-flung corners of the globe within easier reach compared to traditional yachts. Her 43'6'' beam ensures plenty of space to relax and stow toys; in fact, she’s carried a 40-footer since her conversion in 1994.

Y: 1972/1994; B: Schichau-Unterwesser, Germany; N: Claus Kusch (conversion); H: steel; E: 2/4,400-hp Deutz-MWMs
