Posillipo Technema 120

Posillipo Technema 120

A few years ago Gianfranco Rizzardi rescued the troubled Posillipo brand, jump-starting it with a new Technema 105-footer that, as the story goes, took just 700 days from inception to launch. Complementing the five existing models in the Technema

Lyman-Morse 94 Motoryacht

Lyman-Morse 94 Motoryacht

The latest and largest project yet undertaken by this venerable Maine builder is a classy, 94-foot motoryacht that was designed in collaboration with the C. Raymond Hunt organization. She is being built for the owner of Tumblehome, a similarly styled Lyman-Morse 90-footer designed and built by the

Heesen 50-Meter Man of Steel

Heesen 50-Meter Man of Steel

Looking to up his own ante on indulgence afloat, the owner of the 38-meter (125-foot) Man of Steel has commissioned Heesen Yachts to build a 50-meter successor, scheduled for delivery in 2008. Though she's far from the biggest motoryacht around, she packs an impressive array of creature comforts

Propeller-less Propulsion

Ever since the paddlewheel gave way to the screw propeller, there has been little fundamental change in the way that ships and boats are propelled through the water.

Piece(s) de Resistance

Who among us isn’t keenly interested in acquiring something new or different? When it comes to the amenities aboard your yacht, this can translate to something as simple as taking the latest home trend or a familiar object from land-based life and incorporating it—with a twist, of course—into offshore living.

San Juan 40 Fly Bridge

San Juan 40 Fly Bridge

It's abundantly clear that San Juan Yachts has found a look and a style to stay with. Each model, from the 30-foot Express to the 48-foot Fly Bridge, retains the distinctive air of the original San Juan 38. So it’s no surprise that the new 40-foot Fly Bridge adheres to the same proven concept: handsome
