Who needs PWCs when there are windsurfers aboard? Monitor also carries scuba gear.
Y: 1982/1999; B: Picchiotti, Italy; N: Arthur DeFever/ Murray & Associates; H: Steel; E: 2/850-hp Caterpillars

92. MONTIGNE 152'0"
This yacht holds two Harley Davidsons. Hopefully the owner got to use them while his yacht was in New York in September. Montigne is for sale for $17 million.
Y: 1986; B: Feadship/De Vries Scheepsbouw, Holland; N: De Voogt Naval Architects; H: Steel; E: 2/900-hp Caterpillars

Y: 2003; B: Hakvoort, Holland: N: Vripack Yachting/Glade Johnson Design; H: Steel; E: 2/960-hp Caterpillars

94. FRANCINE 151'3"
Her sky lounge is truly her main saloon, since the main deck features an intimate-size relaxation space where you’d expect to find the traditional large saloon.
Y: 1989/1999; B: Benetti, Italy/International Marine Service, France; N: Builder/Tom Fexas Yacht Design; H: Aluminum; E: unknown

95. AFFINITY 151'0"
Affinity and her dark-green hull stopped tourists and other yacht crews in their tracks when she pulled into Newport, Rhode Island, in August.
Y: 1999; B: Delta Marine, USA; N: Delta Design Group; H: Fiberglass; E: 2/1,000-hp Caterpillars

96. DETROIT EAGLE 151'0"
Think engine rooms are all the same? You haven’t seen the one aboard this yacht. Fire-engine-red powerplants glisten in a pristinely kept room. Makes sense, considering Detroit Eagle is owned by Roger Penske, the former head of Detroit Diesel and a racecar team owner (and former driver himself). Another showplace is the pilothouse, where racing helmets are on display.
Y: 2001; B: Feadship/De Vries Scheepsbouw, Holland; N: De Voogt Naval Architects; H: Aluminum; E: 2/3,650-hp MTU-DDCs and 1/5,600-hp TF50 gas turbine

97. D’NATALIN 151'0"
Owned by the same folks as no. 82, D’Natalin spent the summer in New England and should be headed to the Caribbean for the winter. She’s listed for $18.75 million.
Y: 1996; B: Delta Marine, USA; N: Delta Design Group; H: Fiberglass; E: 2/855-hp Caterpillars

98. SEA JEWEL 151'0"
The same person who owns the 123-foot Carolinian has this lady up for sale for $17.8 million. A guest lounge accompanies the guest staterooms, and there’s a triple cabin with its own bath for children or staff.
Y: 1987; B: Feadship/De Vries Scheepsbouw, Holland; N: De Voogt Naval Architects; H: Steel; E: 2/1.050-hp Caterpillars

The famous yacht of the Forbes family has a great collection of art and toys, from Titanic and Normandie memorabilia to Andy Warhol originals and a 19-foot Cigarette, a 23-foot Donzi, and two BMW motorcycles.
Y: 1986; B: Feadship/De Vries Scheepsbouw, Holland; N: Jon Bannenberg/De Voogt Naval Architects; H: Steel; E: 2/1,060-hp Detroit Diesels

100. TURMOIL 151'0"
Turmoil’s owner, Gary Comer, who also founded the clothier Land’s End, became interested in global warming after taking his yacht through the Northwest Passage three years ago. Since then he’s donated to organizations studying dramatic climate changes.
Y: 1996; B: Palmer Johnson, USA; N: Vripack Yachting; H: Aluminum; E: 2/820-hp Caterpillars
