The PMY 100 Largest Yachts 2011

When fans of The PMY 100 open their August issue, the first thing they check is whether there’s a new No. 1. This year there isn’t: Eclipse holds that spot just as she did last year. And it’s not unusual for a yacht to repeat. Savarona held the top spot through the ’90s before being slowly bumped down the list in 2003 by Octopus, which held No. 1 for two years, then Al Salamah, four years, and Dubai, one year.

Though the top of the list sees the most visible change, the middle of the list saw explosive growth during the same time. For example, take Coral Island. When Lrssen delivered her to her Saudi owner in 1994, this 238-footer made her debut at No. 14—the longest new launch on The PMY 100 that year. Since then she’s moved down the list every year but two, and this year she’s barely hanging on at No. 92. Next year she’ll surely be gone.

But change is one of the things that makes The PMY 100 so interesting. That’s why this year, we focused on what’s different: the new launches and refits. So sit back, relax, and carefully peruse who’s on the list. Because the way things are going, they may not be there for long.

  1. Eclipse • 557'0"

    Though launched last year, her delivery to Roman Abramovich was rumored to be delayed until this year. Large enough to be classified as a passenger vessel, as opposed to the more usual pleasure craft, she draws 20 feet.

    New to the world’s Top 100, Musashi made her debut in November at No. 7 on our list of American-owned yachts.

  39. Phoenix² • 286'0" DEBUT

    Our cover yacht, Phoenix² is the second yacht designed by Andrew Winch of the same name delivered to the same private owner and build by Lrssen. The superscript “squared” signifies that she’s exponentially more beautiful and more complex than her predecessor. Her interiors are in the 1930s art-deco style. But when docked stern-to in a marina, her most distinguishing characteristic will be the figurehead on her bow, rarely seen these days.
    Year Launched: 2010; Builder: Lrssen, Germany; Naval Architect: builder; Hull material: steel; Engines: 2/CATs, hp unknown

  40. Seven Seas • 282'2" DEBUT

  44. Sunrays • 280'5"

    Despite the ubiquity of painted megayacht hulls, Sunrays’ teal topsides will still turn heads. Her very private owners helped design a flexible interior layout—for example, the dining table can be used for video conferencing.

  49. Valerie • 275'6" DEBUT

    Valerie was built under the name Project Firebird. She was designed by the same team as the 223-foot Kismet, which launched in 2007. Valerie is the perfect example of how yachts change during construction. Originally she was designed with two possible layouts, which are both still visible on the Moran project-management Web site, one with the helipad forward and one with it aft. She launched with it on the bow. Also conceived with a navy-blue hull, Valerie now is as an all-white vessel.
