80. THEMIS 156'0"
Named for the symbol of blind justice, this yacht features a Dee Robinson interior. Her owner is Ronald Motley, a litigator profiled in the movie The Insider.
Y: 1998; B: Trinity Yachts, USA; N: Builder/Paragon Design; H: Aluminum; E: 2/2,250-hp Caterpillars

81. VA BENE 156'0"
Va Bene spent most of the summer in Croatia and Montenegro. The owner was expected to cruise the Ionian Islands of Greece in September, shortly after we were going to press. She’ll be in St. Maarten and Antigua this winter, where you can charter her (and the 32-foot Intrepid that she tows) for up to $165,000 per week.
Y: 1992; B: Kees Cornelissen, Holland; N: Richard Hein/The A Group Monte Carlo; H: Steel; E: 2/1,750-hp Caterpillars

82. D’NATALIN II 155'10"
You’ll see this yacht in the Caribbean this winter, after a successful summer charter season in the Med, which included a month-long charter in August.
Y: 1999; B: Feadship/Royal Van Lent Shipyard, Holland; N: De Voogt Naval Architects; H: Steel; E: 2/905-hp Caterpillars

83. APRIL FOOL 155'8"
No joke; this yacht really does have that name. Two spiral staircases create an interesting look aft.
Y: 2003; B: International Shipyards Ancona, Italy; N: Walter Franchini; H: Steel; E: 2/2,000-hp MTUs

84. LIQUIDITY 155'0"
This summer a Swedish newspaper erroneously reported that golfing great Tiger Woods purchased this yacht. Henry Luken (see no. 77) was definitely selling her, but Woods was not the buyer, as he got a different yacht (see no. 85). Liquidity remains for sale.
Y: 2001; B: Christensen Shipyards, USA; N: Builder; H: Fiberglass; E: 2/1,800-hp DDC-MTUs

85. HULL 026 155'0"
This is Tiger Woods’ yacht. While the yard and design team honored a confidentiality agreement, Fox Sports, Sports Illustrated, and Golf Digest got wind of his ownership. The name is rumoured to be Privacy, though we can’t confirm, as the photos that were released have the nameboard digitally deleted. (For more details, see “Shhhhh,” this issue.)
Y: 2004; B: Christensen Shipyards, USA; N: Builder; H: Fiberglass; E: 2/1,800-hp MTUs

86. ROXANA 154'0"
Greece and Italy are just two of the countries Roxana has visited with her Oklahoman owners in recent years.
Y: 1998; B: Admiral Marine Works, USA; N: Donald Starkey/Builder; H: Fiberglass; E: 2/1,650-hp Caterpillars

87. DAYBREAK 153'3"
The Bahamas makes for a favorite playground for Daybreak, though she spent time in the Med this summer. Her owner is from Chicago.
Y: 1997; B: Feadship/Royal Van Lent Shipyard, Holland; N: De Voogt Naval Architects; H: Steel; E: 2/905-hp Caterpillars

88. CHARISMA 153'0"
This yacht was one of many that visited Athens, Greece, this summer. Here’s hoping the five-person banana boat and sets of diving and snorkeling gear were put to good use during her stay. She was extensively refitted two years ago and is for sale for $24 million.
Y: 1985; B: Feadship/Royal Van Lent Shipyard, Holland; N: De Voogt Naval Architects; H: Steel; E: 2/745-hp Detroit Diesels

89. CHANTAL MA VIE 152'0"
Chantal Ma Vie gained a blue paint job last year. That and her cockpit Jacuzzi make her stand out.
Y: 1984; B: John Nylen, USA; N: Builder/Jim Krogen; H: Steel; E: 2/700-hp Caterpillars
