36. Astarte ll
213'9" · 1988 A Greek shipping tycoon uses this yacht, which features classic lines, for private cruising. B: Blohm & Voss, Germany; N: Builder/Ross Industries; H: Steel; E: 2/2,992-hp Deutz-MWMs

37. Sokar
213'0" · 1990 Mohammed al-Fayed, the Egyptian millionaire who owns Harrod's in London, keeps this famous lady in the South of France, although she spent time in the Caribbean this winter. In fact, she pulled into Antigua's Falmouth Harbor during the charter show last December. It's hard to imagine a 213-footer looking small, but that's exactly what happened as the yacht cruised past Tatoosh (see no. 10), which was docked nearby. B: Codecasa, Italy; N: Vincenzo Ruggiero; H: Steel; E: 2/3,760-hp Wartsila Nohabs

38. Shemara
212'0" · 1938 A Brit divides his time between a large estate in England and this yacht. B: J.J. Thornycroft & Co., England; N: Builder; H: Steel; E: 2/960-hp Atlases

39. Van Triumph
212'0" · 1984 Van Triumph held the distinction of being the largest private yacht in Asian waters until Evergreen (see no. 9) splashed in Nagasaki. David Lieu, a successful Hong Kong financier, docks this yacht at the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club when he's at home. B: Supercraft, Hong Kong; N: Builder; H: Steel; E: 2/1,400-hp Yanmars

40. Lady Marina
209'10" · 1999 We've heard of reserving a room or two aboard a yacht for the owners' exclusive use, but the husband and wife who own Lady Marina have taken the concept to a whole new level. Seven rooms, including a raised observation room, a massage room, and a full-size gym with sauna, are strictly their own. That's not to imply their guests are mistreated, though: They get to use a glass elevator with a full-length mural to move from deck to deck. B: Feadship/De Vries Scheepsbouw, Holland; N: F.W. De Voogt & Zoon International; H: Steel; E: 2/2,200-hp Caterpillars

41. Sans Peur
210'0" · 1933 This classic yacht belongs to a Japanese owner. Sadly, he rarely uses her, keeping her at anchor in his native country. B: J.J. Thornycroft & Co., England; N: Builder; H: Steel; E: unknown

42. Al Menwar
209'9" · 1987 This yacht's owner hails from Saudi Arabia, and his Middle Eastern heritage is evident in the inlays used throughout the posh interior, highlighted by a variety of maple woods. The master suite is palatial, given that it includes a saloon and measures 26 feet wide and 44 feet long. It's also interesting to note that Al Menwar lacks a helipad, something so many of the owners of the world's largest yachts consider de rigeur. B: Cantieri Navale Nicolini, Italy; N: Builder; H: Steel; E: 2/4,155-hp MTUs

43. Shanaz
209'9" · 1991 The former El Bravo of Cayman, the charter yacht that was available for millennium cruises for $210,000 and gained instant infamy at her launch due to the snakeskin-covered, 2,500-square-foot owner's suite, sold to a resident of Saudi Arabia. B: Cantieri Nuovi Liguri, Italy; N: Studio de Jorio/Vincenzo Ruggiero; H: Steel; E: 2/2,250-hp Deutz-MWMs

44. Siran
208'9" · 1992 Siran spends much of her time in the South of France and is owned by extremely private individuals of Lebanese heritage. Jon Banneberg, who contributed to her exterior styling, also directed her interior design, which features a multitude of marble. B: Feadship/De Vries Scheepsbouw, Holland; N: Jon Bannenberg/H.W. De Voogt; H: Steel; E: 2/1,600-hp Caterpillars
