World's 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #87: Ambrosia

#87: AMBROSIA—213'3"

While there's a fighting chair mounted on the aft deck of Ambrosia, it's used for relaxing, not wrangling marlin. If you ever get up close, you'll see her mast base is adorned with the Scottish clan Young's family crest (a dexter arm holding a lance, at a tilt) and motto ("Press through"). The adornment is fitting, since her owner is Ambrose Young, a Hong Kong businessman.
