Saddam's yacht. Built by Finland, recently updated/remodeled by the US Air Force.

LS JR.
This one is named "Giant I" from Panama City.

They were in the Bahamma's over Thankgiving while we were there and I had a chance to talk to some of the crew.

They will take twelve people anywhere in the world you want to go and fully wait on you for $33,000 per week.

There is another identical matching sport fisher on the other size of the boat also including many other water toys.

C_Spray,

Those are some pretty IMPRESSIVE pictures and stats! Where do those power plants get the needed O2 to run? Is there some force fed air induction system to the engine room? How fast is it? How many crew? What does it have for a tender? A 28 Ocke Mannerfelt? When is the OSO party on it?

Shane, the engine room is fed through huge ducts that run down from the side of the third deck. Diesel exhausts run out the side underwater, and the turbine exhaust splits and runs back out the very top. Full-time crew of seven. Tenders are two 4-man PWC's and a Nova RIB with a rotary/Aplpha setup. And a Gulfstream G5.

OSO party was in November 1994 on the "old 115' Feadship". I won a bet with him and got 10 days onboard in the Bahamas with 5 crew and 4 friends. And NO bill...

By the way, this new one is a Feadship, too. Flawless execution to commercial shipping standards.

Octopus - Here's #1 in the world, 413+ feet and the largest in Paul Allen's fleet. This baby has 2 helo-pads onboard.




Tatoosh - At 301 feet this is Paul's mid-size cruiser. Only one helo for her.



Meduse - the baby in the fleet at 199 feet.

Mcollins - that must have been damn impressive. I saw it from the water in Lauderdale a few years ago, and I still haven't gotten over it.
25 knots + isn't too bad for 316 feet.

Mimi - At 124" she's the largest yach I know of that's been on the St. Croix river in Minnesota. It was owned by the Hubbard family.



Anson Bell - She's now been replaced by this 156" beauty.
