This is more my kind of Superyacht. M/V Ulysses 107m, not too big but with huge range and since she's built with a standby vessel like hull she'll be one of the most seaworthy superyachts afloat.

These superyachts are just really incredible! Such massive boats, incredible, can't believe this!
There are a few large ones in Malta as well, in the three cities, Vittoriosa. I saw a nice sailing ship there, modern style: the Maltese Falcon!
Who knows... Maybe one day :-)

Here's the big sister to Ulysses, she'll also be called Ulysses when she finally gets a name. She's 116m LOA, Ulysses is 107m.

I don't think I'm the only one to say this.

I love yachts. And I love ships. I'm a businessman in finance, not some cloth capped Communist.
But these mega sized superyachts?
Sorry but I just don't get it.

For the price of one of these superyachts, you can get a whole ocean liner/cruise ship
ie a 5, 6 or SEVEN STAR hotel on the ocean. Whats wrong with one of those INSTEAD of a so called "super yacht"?

Surely a luxurious cruise ship which means more people can enjoy the luxury (with ample private space for Mr Zillionaire) shows much more class, style and common sense. As an analogy, Richard Branson opens his private island up to paying guests.

The only reason I can think of having a superyacht instead of building a cruise ship/liner is this. Superyacht owners are so despised (oligarchical criminals/despotic feudalist monarchs etc) that they'd rather a smaller superyacht to themselves than a cruise ship to have the (horror horror) "vulgarity" of sharing with a select number of paying guests. Maybe they're afraid of getting killed on account of who they are and what they did (or didn't do!) to acquire such wealth? I mean Phillip Green, Jordan Belfort, the Russian oligarch crooks and silverspoon Arabs, they aren't the greatest adverts for a "free market" are they? Plenty of megarich people wouldn't dream of buying a megayacht. Is that coincidence?

The way I see it, past a certain point (say 120 ft) a superyacht just becomes extremely tacky. Its like a metallic representation of some sort of banana republic feudalism. Saddam Hussein and solid gold Kalashnikovs or Imelda Marcos and thousands of pairs of shoes etc! To me, worshipping a tasteless excess is a bit like being a cuckold.
Anyway... just my view people!
