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.
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
slide out bars
and everything else you would expect from a yacht; gym, bars, dinning rooms, lounges, etc
Here is the deck plan if anyone is interested http://www.pastrovich.com/01_Power/1...bar/01_GAP.pdf
I saw her when I was in Puerto Rico back in early March------

We all know that small cars are good for us. But so is cod liver oil. And jogging- Jeremy Clarkson.

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.
