Motor Yacht - Le Grand Bleu - 113 m - Bremer Vulkan - 2000
Largely used as an exploration yacht, Le Grand Bleu was built for US telecommunications baron John McCaw then sold to Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich who had the industrious megayacht refitted twice before giving it to close friend Eugene Shvidler, a Russian oil tycoon, who remains in possession.

The yacht carries a veritable arsenal of tenders and watertoys, both on her aft decks and in her extensive below-deck garage, where there is a large aquarium. Her watercraft include a 22m Dubois-designed sailing yacht, Bellatrix; a 21m Guy Couach motor yacht; two 11m, 60-knot Buzzi sports boats; and a landing craft to carry a 4x4 Land Rover used for excursions ashore.
