10. APOGEE • L: 205'0" Y: 2003
Expected to be delivered about the time you’re reading this, Apogee is the latest in a series of similar-size yachts to emerge from Codecasa. She features six guest staterooms and is capable of a 6,000-NM range at 14 knots. We’ve heard that the owner is the same person who used to own a Broward named Cartouche. B: Codecasa, Italy; N: Builder; H: Steel; E: 2/2,260-hp Caterpillars

11. LADY LOLA • L: 205'0" Y: 2002
Just because you’re both an avid golfer and an avid boater doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy your passions simultaneously. Take a page from the book of Duane Hagadone. The Idaho resident, who built a media empire stretching from New Jersey to Hawaii, has a driving range on the aft portion of the yacht’s sundeck, and floating pins help him perfect his swings. Lest you think he’s polluting pristine anchorages with golf balls, the ones he uses are made to float and are equipped with special electronic devices that let him retrieve them via remote control. B: Oceanco, South Africa/Holland; N: The “A” Group-Monte Carlo SAM; H: Steel; E: 2/2,000-hp Caterpillars

12. CAKEWALK • L: 203'5" Y: 2000
If ever there were a good argument for dining alfresco, Cakewalk presents one: Her aft deck dining area is larger than the dining room inside. After dessert, guests probably race each other to the six below-decks staterooms, each named for a different region of the world, with decors that evoke suitable moods. The China Sea, for example, has fabrics featuring reclining pandas and Asian men jumping rope. Or maybe guests practice their best Scarlett O’Hara as they descend the spiral staircase that rises through all four decks. B: Feadship/Royal Van Lent Shipyard, Holland; N: H.W. De Voogt Naval Architects; H: Steel; E: 2/2,000-hp Caterpillars

13. MYLIN IV • L: 200'0" Y: 1992
The Arison family of Carnival Cruise Lines fame spend their leisure time onboard this Feadship. They—as well as guests such as Pat Riley, coach of the Miami Heat basketball team, which Mickey Arison owns—have enjoyed her luxurious accommodations in ports of call ranging from South Florida to St. Tropez. B: Feadship/Royal Van Lent Shipyard, Holland; N: H.W. De Voogt Naval Architects; H: Steel; E: 2/3,300-hp MTUs

14. MÉDUSE • L: 198'10" Y: 1996
Paul Allen’s third yacht on our list (see nos. 1, 3) is also the second Feadship he purchased. Given her nearly 199 feet of length, you’d certainly expect her to be well laid out; but what you might not expect is the extraordinary headroom, enough for seven-foot-plus-tall members of the Portland Trailblazers basketball team, which Allen also owns, to comfortably move around. Should a vertically challenged individual be aboard and be unfortunate enough to sit behind one of the basketball players in the main-deck cinema, fear not: The rear settee can raise hydraulically. A Surround Sound system enhances the viewing experience. B: Feadship/De Vries Scheepsbouw, Holland; N: De Voogt Naval Architects; H: Steel; E: 2/1,700-hp Caterpillars

15. PARAFFIN • L: 197'2" Y: 2001
While owners always have a say in the design elements that go into their yachts, Mike and Lisa Kittredge literally took the helm of designing their yacht’s interior. They wanted to be able to entertain several dozen people with just a day’s notice, so the galley and dining/relaxation areas are set up with this in mind. (The 400-bottle wine “cellar” certainly helps, too.) A recording studio is in the bridge-deck lounge, but if it’s just too lovely to stay inside, all the instruments can be plugged in on the main deck aft or the bridge deck. The yacht’s name was inspired by the business Mike founded, Yankee Candle Company. B: Feadship/Royal Van Lent Shipyard, Holland; N: H.W. De Voogt Naval Architects; H: Steel; E: 2/2,000-hp Caterpillars

16. INTUITION II • L: 193'7" Y: 1974/1999
Intuition II is a familiar sight in Sag Harbor, New York, as her owner, Pat Malloy, also owns the marina. In recent months she’s been in Bristol, England, and Gallway, Ireland. Intuition II charters for $145,000 plus expenses per week. B: Amels, Holland/Vosper Thornycroft (UK), England; N: Builder; H: Steel; E: 1/1,330-hp Smit Slikkerveer electric motor and 3/650-hp Deutz-MWMs

17. CALIXE • L: 193'0" Y: 1986
A California woman (yes, woman) who is protective of her privacy uses Calixe. B: Feadship/De Vries Scheepsbouw, Holland; N: H.W. De Voogt Naval Architects; H: Steel; E: 2/1,605-hp Deutz-MWMs

18. CAPRI • L: 192'0" Y: 2003
Capri has a cinema, gymnasium, recording studio, and the customary sun and observation lounges. It’s also worth noting that the owners requested near-silent running and that the two tenders be stowed in an aft garage instead of on deck. Interestingly, we hear that they hadn’t even visited the yard while Capri was under construction, entrusting supervision of all matters of construction to their management team. B: Lürssen, Germany; N: Builder/Glade Johnson Designs; H: Steel; E: 2/Caterpillars (hp unknown)

19. LIBERTAD • L: 192'0" Y: 1986/1992
Leopoldo Fernandez Pujals, a Cuban-American who successfully launched a pizza business in Spain similar to Domino’s, owns this yacht. She shares her name with the pro-democracy group Cuba Libertad, which he also heads. Libertad—plus her toys, including a 21-foot Sea Ray and dive gear—is for sale for $14.95 million. B: Elsflether Werft, Germany; N: Builder/Donald Starkey; H: Steel; E: 2/1,720-hp Caterpillars
