Oceans 12: The Year of the Megayacht
This past year saw the launch of a vessel that will likely unseat the current queen of the Top 100, Eclipse. Currently under lock and key at German builder Lürssen’s yard, speculations on ownership of this 591-foot (180-meter) yacht abound, but this wasn’t Lürssen’s only marquee moment.
Eclipse took the crown as the reigning queen of private yachts in 2010 and, so far, has not been unseated. Rather stylish for her estimated 13,000 gross tons and 72-foot (22-meter beam), Eclipse owes her styling to UK-based designer Terence Disdale who also worked on Pelorus, once the flagship of Roman Abramovich’s fleet.
