America’s 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #8: Talitha
You read that name right: She’s now Talitha, not Talitha G. This summer, shortly after she emerged from a refit at Blohm + Voss that saw the construction of new funnels to hide some of her nav and communication equipment and thereby preserve her classic lines, she dropped the "G." Her longstanding Web site, talitha-g.com, also now redirects to mytalitha.com. What hasn’t changed is the crew’s great sense of humor and camaraderie, as evident from their bios and blog.
Y: 1929/1994; B: Krupps Kiel, Germany; N: Cox & Stevens; H: steel; E: 2/1,400-hp Caterpillars
