World's 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #89: Man

#89: MAN—213'2"

The name of this debut may strike you as being unusual, but it actually has a sweet meaning: "mom," in an old dialect of the Piacenza area of Italy. Man is the newest yacht belonging to fashion designer Giorgio Armani. While there are plenty of distinct yachts out there, this one takes the cake: painted stem to stern in dark-green paint. The shadowy tone makes her angular lines look all the more aggressive, even militaristic. Her stern is particularly interesting, though, featuring full-beam teak steps. (Knowing the bevy of beauties that fashion designers attract, imagine the fashion show that'll take place there...)

Y: 2008; B: Codecasa, Italy; N: builder; H: steel; E: unknown
