The Greatest Escape
With its biggest boat to date, Nordhavn stays true to its oceangoing heritage.
I’m an unabashed, unapologetic traditionalist when it comes to marine design and aesthetics. So, right off the top, I’m going to admit that my appreciation for the classical good looks of Retro Blue, Sanlorenzo’s newest semidisplacement SD92, should probably be taken with a grain of salt (and a healthy dollop of open-mindedness) especially by those readers who
The Friendly Giant
This 214-footer‘s adaptability allows her to offer something for everyone.
When you think Feadship, you probably think quality, experience, and precision. Or maybe your mind floods with visions of long graceful hulls with elegant lines. Indeed Trident, Feadship‘s new 214-foot leviathan, has all of the
Deep Blue Explorer
CRN keeps its Blue Eyes focused on the ocean.
On many megayachts, it’s easy to forget that you are actually on the water. You can get so lost in the lavish interior spaces, in enjoying a film in that massive media room, or in soaking up sauna time that you lose sight of the fact that you’re not just staying in a

Trident | 213'9" ( tie )
In June, during a tour of Dutch-based builders, I got a chance to take a short cruise around Amsterdam aboard this 214-foot beauty. And even though her Donald-Starkey interior was not yet complete, I did get to check out some of her more striking design elements. From the centerpiece elevator that Feadship rightly
Attessa | 225'0" ( 71 )
Billionaire industrialist, shipping magnate, and true boat lover Dennis Washington owns this 226-foot beauty, which has a storied past despite her youthful appearance. She was originally launched in 1998 as the 203-foot Feadship Lady Avila. In May 2001, during a passage from Thailand to Rhodes, she caught fire
Martha Ann | 229'6" ( 67 ) ( tie )
Martha Ann’s a globe-trotter of the first order. Since her launch in December 2007, she’s already made landfall in a host of palm-fringed ports in the Bahamas and western Caribbean. One of her most spottable attributes is her striking blue hull, a color not shared by sisterships Apoise (89)
Predator | 238'8" ( 54 )
At first glance Predator may seem like something out of a Jules Verne novel, but she is very real and very eye-catching. Her axe-bow design is actually a throwback to ships of the 1800’s, but by no means an exercise in nostalgia. According to Feadship, about six years ago it investigated the possibility of
Madsummer | ( tie ) 257'2"
Do you have a million bucks you’re looking to do something with? Well, you could use it to charter this American-owned 257-footer for the week. And what a yacht you’d get. From a fleet that includes mid-20-foot sportboats and a plethora of
Vibrant Curiosity | 280'4"
Talk about pedigree. Vibrant Curiosity is the fourth in Oceanco’s line of Y700-code yachts, which means she counts as sisterships fellow Top 100-ers like Alfa Nero (35) and Amevi (39). And though Oceanco says the sleek appearance of this full-displacement, deeply flared beauty mixes “luxury” and “sobriety,” we
