Musashi was built by Feadship and was delivered in 2011. The yacht is designed by De Voogt Yacht Design. She has a length of 88 meters (287ft). She is a sistership to Fountainhead, which is owned by Eddie Lampert.

Rising Sun is a 138 meter (454ft) yacht built in 2004 at Lurssen. She has a displacement of 7,841t, which makes her one of the larger yacht around.

She is powered by 4 MTU diesel engines. Which bring her a top speed of 28 knots. Her cruise speed is 26 knots.  She can accomodate 16 guests and a crew of 45.

Ellison actually sold Rising Sun, as he considered her too large. She is unable to access interesting yachting destinations. He replaced her with the ‘smaller’ 88 meter Mushashi. The yacht is used as support vessel at the america cup.

The yacht Katana was built by Blohm Voss as Eco for the Mexican media billionaire Emillio Azcarraga. He was founder of Televisa.

The 58 meter (192ft) yacht is powered by 2 MTU 16V595 engines, with a total of 12,000hp. These bring her to a top speed of 30 knots. Her cruise speed is 18 knots. She has an aluminum hull and superstructure.

She was later listed for sale, asking US$ 16 million. We think she was not sold and is now delisted.
