To counterbalance this I would like to draw your attention to two "smaller" and less well-known yachts that I think are worth looking at.
The first is Kooilust Mare, the 2003 151-foot CRN. I saw that she is featured in the May 2004 issue of Power & Motoryacht - an issue that I as a European subscriber am still eagerly awaiting!
The other yacht I would suggest that you look at is Sweet Doll - a 2003 Heesen yacht more or less the size of Kooilust Mare. Sweet Doll has the coolest interior design afloat (by Frank Laupman of Omega Architects).
Here is a link to some information about Sweet Doll:
but more pictures are to be found on the Heesen Yachts website http://www.heesenshipyards.nl
