Enigma - Blohm Voss - 74.50 meter - 1991

Enigma formerly ECO and Katana is one of the world's largest private superyachts. According to Power and Motoryacht magazine, she is owned by Aidan Barclay, son of the British media tycoon David Barclay who recently purchased the Telegraph newspaper. She was sold after her former owner, Larry Ellison, took delivery of Rising Sun, the 6th largest private yacht in the world. Measuring slightly more than 244 feet (or around 75 metres), Enigma was launched in 1991 and originally christened ECO by its former owner, Mexican mogul Emilio Azc√°rraga, founder and former CEO of TV and media conglomerate Televisa. Enigma is renowned for her design, including a pyramidic superstructure surrounded by convex windows, and an agile design that enables her to achieve a maximum speed of 28 knots, although some sources quote 30 knots as her top speed. It contains 9 luxurious suites.
She was built by German shipyards Blohm & Voss.

Lady Moura - Blohm Voss - 104,85 meter- 1990

Lady Moura is a private superyacht. It was pronounced the 11th largest private yacht in the year 2006 in Monte Carlo, Monaco. It is owned by Nasser Al-Rashid, a multi-billionaire businessman in Saudi Arabia.
Both the hull and the superstructure are made of steel. The propulsion plant consists of two KHD-MWM diesel engines, each with a power of 5050 kW (over 6700 bhp), and controllable pitch propellers producing a speed of over 20 knots. A crafty hydraulically-operated system of shell ports, doors, flaps, roofs, bath platforms, gangways and cranes provide the most possible ease of operation and comfort. Even the boats, anchors, liferafts and navigation lanterns are hidden behind covers and do not disturb the aesthetics of the yacht. Both the name and the escutcheon that can be seen at port, starboard and at Stern are carved in 24 carat gold
