Egos? Saying length isn't the only measure, weight also is, is like saying the tallest fat guy is the tallest. The Yacht Report for 2008 is out. In an interesting development, the Yacht Report decided that length will no longer determine largest. Displacement will also be considered. The scurrying you hear are designers going back to the drawing boards. If you enjoy some vicarious thrills, go to your favorite bookstore and flip through the pages. These boats are magnificent. Gold and crystal and mirrors everywhere. Luxury knows no limits when a yacht builder gets his hands on a gazillionaires funds.
