America's 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #91: Lohengrin

#91: LOHENGRIN—161'0"

Talk about a major step: The owner of this yacht bought his first boat, a 126-footer, about a year before he purchased this one, which was already under construction at Trinity Yachts (the person who commissioned her, Rick Hendricks of NASCAR fame, decided to sign a contract for a bigger yacht instead). A series of large oval ports

#92: ZOOM ZOOM ZOOM—161'0"

Like Anjilis (see no 90), this lady has a 14-foot-deep swim platform. Imagine what it would be like to dine there, in a quiet anchorage-yes, dine there, possible thanks to sunshades that can be installed in holders in the deck.

America's 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #93: Aurora

#93: AURORA—160'10"

We’ve mentioned it a few times over the years, but it bears repeating that this boat was the largest fiberglass yacht ever built in the USA throughout the 1990’s. She’s been cruising stateside for nearly two years.

America's 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #95: Teleost

#95: TELEOST—160'5"

Fishing and scuba diving are among the watersports the owner of Teleost enjoys-and you can, too, for a weekly charter rate of $225,000. Even her name evokes passion for the sea: It’s a type of prehistoric fish.

America's 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #96: Newvida

#96: NEWVIDA—160'0"

A refit in 2007 saw this yacht gain a day head on the flying bridge and a wine "cellar" in the saloon. If the owners and guests prefer dining outside, there’s a 12- to 14-person table on the main aft deck and a ten- to 12-person table on the bridge deck-and both are in sight of 32-inch TVs.

#97: INEVITABLE—158'3"

"This project can more accurately be described as a rebuild than a refit because it touched every aspect of the yacht." So said Sijbrand de Vries, managing director of Feadship’s Royal De Vries yard, which rebuilt or refurbished about 200 items aboard Inevitable earlier this year. A blonde-teak interior and a new swim platform, plus

America's 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #98: Kanaloa

#98: KANALOA—157'5"

Kanaloa has several standout areas, including the VIP stateroom, with a full-wall shoji screen, and the sundeck, where a treadmill and other gym equipment can be set up by the crew, beneath a sunshade that extends out from the radar arch.

America's 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #99: Chevy Toy

#99: CHEVY TOY—157'0"

The ex-Janie is in the hands of an experienced yacht owner who, as his boat’s name implies, is a car dealer. In fact, he’s Gene Reed, who has a nationwide auto group. Since he’s used his previous yachts, 118- and 142-footers, for charitable fundraisers, perhaps he’ll do the same for this one.


America's 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #100: Lady Joy

#100: LADY JOY—157'0"

Lady Joy had a star-studded christening in New York City last year in October, where her owner, socialite (and ex-wife of financier Marc Rich) Denise Rich, welcomed aboard people like singer Patti LaBelle and designer Nicole Miller. The parade of who’s who continued this summer in St. Tropez, where the yacht hosted a Moulin

Third Time’s the Charm

If you’re familiar with Monaco, you’ll also be familiar-unless you’re very rich or very lucky-with the neck ache you get from looking up at those enormous motoryachts. Last time I was in town, I got lucky: I was looking down.

Golden Girl

I am walking down the quay at the megayacht marina in Genoa, Italy. I see a big, white trideck. And a big, white trideck. And a big, white trideck.

And a big... gold... performance cruiser?

Alloy 40m Allogante

Yacht design is an inherently iterative process: From the conceptual sketches to the final production drawings there are seemingly endless tweaks and refinements in a quest for the ideal final product. Sometimes, this process becomes evolutionary, each project building on the genetic makeup of its predecessor. A case in point is Alloy Yachts’ new 40m project, Allogante, whose lineage can be
