Miami is a common host for extravagant yachts at all times of the year. Track these magnificent vessels and their outlandish toys with Miami Yacht Watch, which typically runs weekly on Curbed Miami

Currently docked at downtown Miami’s Museum Park is one of the world’s largest superyachts, the 370-foot Le Grande Bleu.

To illustrate just how large this vessel is, it has a 65-member crew and is equipped with FOUR tenders, per Boat International, including a 72-foot sailing yacht and a 68-foot yacht motor yacht. There also are two 36-foot, 60-knot Buzzi sports boats and a landing craft that’s used to carry a 4x4 Land Rover to shore and a helipad of course.

Le Grande Bleu is the 31st largest superyacht in the world.

The mammoth superyacht has an interesting backstory. It used to be owned by Roman Abramovich, a billionaire Russian businessman who also owns Chelsea F.C. In 2006, Abramovich lost Le Grande Bleu in a wager to a billionaire buddy, Eugene Shvidler, according to Wikipedia.

Details of the interiors, which were designed by Terence Disdale, are tight-lipped.
