World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #9: Pelorus

#9: PELORUS—377'3"

Pelorus was in Denmark earlier this year, after having spent several months at Blohm + Voss' facility in Germany for some maintenance work. While we don't have details on what was done, we do know about one cool feature she has: a dedicated elevator for taking guests up to the helipad. She then went on to visit Stockholm (an increasingly popular Swedish spot for superyachts) and St. Petersburg, Russia. She raises a stir wherever she goes, partly due to her sleek lines and vanilla-tone hull, but mostly because her owner is Roman Abramovich, the Russian billionaire who owns a popular "football club" (that's "soccer team" to us Yanks).
