|Then & Now: 1993-2003|
Part 3: Jumbo Shrimp, Greg Norman, and more
By Elizabeth A. Ginns and Capt. Patrick Sciacca
Katana earns recognition for having the most horsepower, thanks to her twin 5,000-hp Deutz engines and 18,500-hp GE turbine, giving her a total of 28,500 hp.
In 1993 Greg Norman was too busy winning the Doral-Ryder and British Open and earning $1 million on the PGA Tour to make our list. But Norman has apparently lightened his schedule (and his winnings) to enjoy more time on the water aboard his 220-footer, Aussie Rules, which debuts this year at number 36.
Holy bank account, Batman! If you combine the personal wealth of American megayacht owners Larry Ellison (Katana, Ronin) and Paul Allen (Tatoosh, Octopus, and Méduse), the total equals $112 billion (according to Forbes) which exceeds the gross national product of New Zealand.
