Limitless is one of the world's largest private superyachts. She was built in 1997 by German shipmaker Lürssen, with exterior design by the noted Jon Bannenberg and collaborator Jonathan Quinn Barnett,[1] and interior design by François Catroux.[2] The overall length is 96,25 m (315 ft 8 in), the width 12,50 m (41 ft). She is powered by two engines of 5420 kW each, reaching a speed of 25 knots (46 km/h; 29 mph), and was the first yacht to feature a combination of diesel and diesel-electric propulsion. Limitless is owned by Les Wexner, an American businessman who is currently chairman and CEO of the L Brands corporation (formerly Limited Brands, and best known for its brand Victoria's Secret).
