 Standart" was a veritable floating palace, adorned with mahogany-paneled drawing rooms, formal salons with polished floors, brass fittings, crystal chandeliers and velvet drapes.

The czar's private study was furnished in dark leather and elegant wooden furniture, while the czarina's drawing room and boudoir were bedecked in her favorite English chintz. The imperial yacht even had its own chapel for the private use of the family.

However, Russia's largest royal yacht was also her last. After the revolution in 1917, the ship was stripped of all its elegance, renamed "Vosemnadtsate Martza" and refitted as a drab, gray minelayer for service in the Soviet Navy. The boat was scrapped at Tallinn in Estonia in 1963.   Cry

Britannia
Now decommissioned and on display in Edinburgh, Scotland, the vast and lavishly designed "HMY Britannia" has sailed over one million miles during 44 years of service and in the course of 968 official royal visits.

.Once described by Queen Elizabeth as "the one place where I can truly relax"


"Dubai"

Today, the undisputed champion of royal vessels belongs to Dubai's Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum , whose $300 million mega-yacht is christened -- somewhat unimaginatively -- "Dubai."

Measuring 524 feet long, it's the world's second-largest yacht, eclipsed only by Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich's suitably named "Eclipse."

"M/Y Grace"

Decked out with a Jacuzzi, sea kayaks, snorkeling gear and wetsuits, "M/Y Grace" is one of the few specially tailored yachts fit to chart the delicate waters surrounding the Galapagos Islands.

The boat's regal past is only hinted at in its name. "M/Y Grace," as the vessel is now known, was once the royal yacht of Prince Rainier and Princess Grace of Monaco.

 American actress Grace Kelly famously took her honeymoon aboard the royal yacht of her new husband, Prince Rainier of Monaco.When American actress Grace Kelly married the prince of Monaco, the couple were extensively pictured honeymooning on this exquisite 147-foot-long yacht, given to them as a wedding gift by prominent Greek shipping merchant Aristotle Onassis.


"K/S Norge"

The K/S Norge is one of the last active royal yachts in Europe, belonging to Herald V, King of Norway.

Built in 1937 by Camper and Nicholson, the oldest leisure marine company in the world, the boat was originally owned by British aviation pioneer Sir Thomas Sopwith -- who had given it over to the UK's Royal Navy to serve as a convoy escort vessel during World War II.

In July 1947, the ship was purchased by the people of Norway as a present to the much beloved King Haakon VII for his 75th birthday. The royal yacht was renamed "Norge," the Norwegian word for Norway.

Still used today for state visits abroad, the classically shaped yacht is also employed as a base for the king when he competes in international yacht races.

What number yacht are the Spaniards on now? They keep giving it the same name (Fortuna) so it's a bit difficult to keep track. Juan Carlos uses his connections to get wealthy businessmen to buy their yachts. He, in turn, gives them to the state probably so that the SRF doesn't have to pay much for the overall upkeep. It'll be interesting to see if Felipe continues the secret, shady relationships that his father has once he becomes King.

Roughly translated as:

Bizarre: King Willem-Alexander bought expensive yacht during corona crisis (video)

According to royalty reporter Sandra Schuurhof, King Willem-Alexander purchased a very expensive new motor yacht this spring, around the outbreak of the corona virus. There is no full confirmation yet, but an insider has more information.

Bigger than the previous yacht
Yvonne Zwaan, editor-in-chief of motorboot.com, says that Willem-Alexander visited a seller and also made a test run with one of the motor yachts, which is about five meters longer than the previous yacht of the king. The yacht has four berths, so the whole family cannot stay on it. "I can imagine Willem-Alexander and Máxima spending a romantic weekend together on the boat," says Zwaan.

King Willem-Alexander buys a very expensive Dutch motor yacht

King Willem-Alexander treated himself and his family this spring to a new motor yacht. It would be a Wajer 55 that he purchased for his holiday home in Greece.

The king's new yacht is 16 meters long and cost him about 2 million euros. It is one of the largest and most luxurious models of Wajer Yachts in Heeg, Friesland. The king sold his previous ship, a Wajer 38.

The new Wajer has an electric convertible top and has four sleeping places, a kitchen and a bathroom.
