America's 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #62: Gallant Lady
#62: GALLANT LADY—168'0"
Though smaller than her sister (see no. 55), this yacht is no less cherished by JM Family Enterprises, founded by the late Jim Moran and regularly listed by Fortune magazine as one of the best companies in the nation to work for. This Gallant Lady is the eighth same-named Feadship that Moran commissioned to entertain employees of his companies. One of her neat features: a "club lounge" where you’d expect the pilothouse to be. It’s a comfortable room for playing chess or cards or simply taking in the spectacular views. (The pilothouse, by the way, is one deck higher.)
