Motor Yacht - Limitless - 96 m - Lurssen - 1997Owned by Limited Brands CEO Les Wexner, head of lingerie chain Victoria's Secret, Limitless will always remain the largest yacht to fly the American flag

after a special act of Congress was made in its honour.
The 1997ABS-classified yacht was at the time, and continues to be, technologically advanced; becoming the first yacht purpose-built for diesel-electric propulsion, and the first to feature Dynamic Positioning technology.

Limitless is powered by a hybrid diesel and diesel-electric propulsion package that allows her conventional diesels to be boosted a further 6,607hp by a pair of 16-cylinder Caterpillar 3516 and two 12-cylinder Caterpillar 3412 diesels that power electric motors.
This combination gives her a top speed of 25 knots flat out, with a cruising speed of 17.00 knots from her 400,000-litre fuel tanks.
