Luxury Yachts: Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich recently launched the 557-ft. Eclipse, the world's largest and most expensive privately owned yacht at a cost of about $450 million. Now renowned naval architect Donald Starkey is offering to top that feat with a 656-ft. behemoth called Everest, slated to be completed next year. Anyone looking to topple Abramovich with $500 million to spare can boast of a boat that beats the Eclipse by nearly 100 ft. Beyond a superyacht or even a megdaycht, the Everest inaugurates a whole new class - the gigayacht. Currently under construction in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, the Everest will be longer than two football fields and have five decks serviced by two elevators, a helipad, a submarine and accommodations for 36 passengers in 17 apartments, including an owner's private penthouse suite on the top deck.

Every suite will have private terraces. There are accommodations for approximately 60 crew and 20 staff and operational staff (heli-pilots, security staff etc.) located on the forward lower decks. There are large lounge areas and a dining room on the aft of the maind with an outside swimming pool and cinema arrangement. Other entertaining facilities include a large gymnasium, well-being center, sauna and steam rooms. The indoor cinema and a beach club have side folding platforms port and starboard and a large drive-in docking facility at the aft end for boats and a small submarine. There is also a dive center. A 5-deck high atrium with central staircase and the two elevators connect all decks, including the sun deck, which has a shaded dining area and sunning areas with a Jacuzzi tub.
