Le Grand Bleu is a superyacht. She was the 36th longest private yacht in the world in 2019, at 113-metre (371 ft) in length. She was built at the Bremer Vulkan yard in Bremen, Germany, and was launched in 2000. She was designed by Stefano Pastrovich and constructed by Kusch Yachts. She was previously owned by John McCaw, Jr., an American businessman, who sold her to Russian businessman Roman Abramovich in 2002. Abramovich had her refitted to his own preferences by HDW in Kiel, Germany. This included an internal refit and the addition of a 5-metre (16 ft) swim platform.

In June 2006, Abramovich lost Le Grand Bleu in a bet to her current owner, friend and business partner Eugene Shvidler.
A mini refit in Port Canaveral, FL in 2008, included a "green" wastewater treatment system in addition to the current Lloyd's certified system, which allows the ship to reuse the wastewater after treatment rather than discharging direct into the sea.
The boat also boasts two additional yachts on individual cranes that she carries on the topside of the aft of the boat - one is a 73-foot (22 m) sailboat (on the port side), and the other is a 68-foot (21 m) powerboat (on the starboard side).
