#39: LONE RANGER—255'0"
For $48 million you can buy one of the most adventurous yachts on the planet, from Peter Lewis, the American who headed Progressive Casualty Insurance Company for several years. From the late 1990's through to last year, he and his yacht have been cruising all over the globe; Canada, Jamaica, the Dominican Republic, the Leeward and Windward Islands, Spain, Corsica, Sardinia, Italy, and Turkey were highlights of just his first year's travels. The list of destinations goes on and on, but of all of them, perhaps the most outstanding was the one to Antarctica in February 2005.
