America's 100 Largest Yachts 2007 #90: Newvida

They simply press a button on a Crestron touch-screen display, and up comes a menu of available snacks, even wines and cheeses. Once they make their selection, the stewardess and chef receive notification on a display of their own, and it also gets recorded in the reprovision list.
