    Default Le Grand Bleu

    One of my favorite yachts, not because of its look, but because of the all the amenities it has.

    Little Background: Originally owned by John McCaw, launched in 2000, it was shortly sold to Roman Abramovich who ultimately gave it to his friend and current owner Eugene Shvidler.

    Facts:
    341 feet long with a 58' beam and draws a little over 15'
    Powered by two 3600hp diesel engines and capable of 17 knots
    20 state rooms and a typical crew of 35

    Now the cool stuff:
    The BOAT CARRIERS MORE BOATS!! (LOTS MORE!!!)
    She has a 70 foot sailboat on her port side that is lowered into the water with a custom mechanism
    She has a 65 foot powerboat on her starboard side that is also lowered into the water with a custom mechanism
    She has a 40 foot RIB on the starboard side upper deck
    She has a 30 foot powerboat on the port side upper deck
    She has two more small power boats in the bow and two addition in the stern
    She has 4 more power boats, six jet skis, and a catamaran sailboat in the tender garage
    Oh, lets not forget the 2 lifeboats!

    Other cool things about this boat
    2 helicopter pads
    swimming pool
    slide out bars
    movie theater
    and everything else you would expect from a yacht; gym, bars, dinning rooms, lounges, etc

    Saw her in St. John's, Newfoundland a couple of years ago. What an amazing yacht up close! It was pretty funny to see a pleasure craft that dwarfed the anchor handling tugs from the oil fields in the harbor.

    I remember reading about this boat in Power and Motoryacht. I love its commercial-ish/tough looks and ability to carry tons of toys. Definitely an awesome expedition boat.
