The Best of the Best 2003: Megayachts - Royal Denship

  • Rick Friese

No matter how charming the guests aboard your yacht can be, occasions arise when you seek privacy in places other than your stateroom. Aboard Big Roi, the 207-foot Royal Denship expedition yacht, owner Roy Speer has an entire deck to himself.

The 3,000-square-foot owner’s deck of the blue-hulled behemoth is accessible by private elevator or interior stairway. It includes a full-beam master suite, a salon with a dining table, a library/office, his-and-her bathrooms, and several entertainment centers. If Speer wishes to socialize, the main deck includes a grand piano and a full bar.

With a range of 8,500 miles and twin 2,000-hp Caterpillar diesels that produce a 16-mph cruising speed, the yacht is capable of visiting regions remote enough to provide complete solitude.
