Roman Abramovich made a lot of noise when he launched his 536 foot long yacht Eclipse in 2010.Among a number of crazy features, one that was highly touted was a system that uses lasers to prevent photographs of the ship and its passengers. It had even been deemed a “paparazzi shield.”

Well, it seems intrepid reader David Tulchinsky was able to avoid the shield and bring us some excellent shots of the yacht while it was in St. Barts last year.

In addition, he spotted a number of unique ships while he was in the area.

This yacht on its own is worthy of a bunch of pictures.

And here we have what could possibly be a Bond villain's ship.

This yacht, A, is owned by Russian billionaire Andrey Melnichenko.

What is it worth? An estimated $300 million.

Just when you didn't think it was possible, an even larger yacht was seen.

It looks like something you could take on an expedition around the world.

But here's the crown jewel: the largest yacht in the world.

For the sceptics, the name is up there for everyone to see.

The side garage was open to let one of the tenders out.

It is simply massive. In fact, we think it may be too large. A 300-foot yacht would be perfectly fine by us.

Now take a look at yesterday's photo of the day.
