Default More BIG boats

Thanks for posting that, Hans.

Here are a few more of my favorites:

1) The Wally Yacht - "Angels Share" in Falmouth Harbour, Antigua http://www.superyachts.com/sail-yach...cification.htm The good news is it can be bought for 5.9 M Euros

2) Wally tender to "Angels Share" in St Lucia - over 200 miles away !!

3) This magnificent yacht was anchored at the base of the Grand Petons, St Lucia.

4) "Skat" in Falmouth Harbour, Antigua http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skat_%28yacht%29

5) And for something really, really BIG the Allure of the Seas, at Phillipsburg, St Maarten

Default Rising Sun

Just a couple photos of Rising Sun which at 458' was the largest yacht in the world just a couple years ago and now is #7 with the largest being about 100' longer.

A regulation half court on the back of a yacht ? Thats just so over the top insane!

Expat- It is amazing that there's a 100ft spread between the top seven...
"Eclipse" just looks monsterously big in pictures, I can only imagine the issues they have finding places to dock...

Here's a couple of the yacht "A". Owned by a Russian billionaire. It's been on OSO before and has been in the North Sound a couple of times. Impressive up close.

Hello David

Have seen the Rising Sun, as Larry Ellison the head of Oracle Software has had it in San Francisco a few times, there was talk that he was looking to sell it at one time.

I expect it will be here for the 34th Americas Cup in 2013 when it is held in San Franccisco Bay. Larry Ellison is the defender of the Cup
its still a huge mega yacht.
thank you
jim
