121. BLUE ICE          
135'0"  1999
With a metallic-gray finish to her hull and superstructure, Blue Ice stands out in a crowd. Her speed makes her stand out even more: 30 knots top speed, 25 knots cruise.

132'6"  1988

125. COUNTACH

126. KATHARINE

B: Trident Shipyard, USA; N: Wesley Carr; H: Fiberglass; E: 2/760-hp Caterpillars

127. MIRAGE           
132'0"  1991
If you enjoy life in the fast lane, then you'll appreciate Mirage, since she's capable of 45-knot speeds. And what better toy for a waterjet yacht to carry than a waterjet-powered 15-foot tender? Mirage also totes PWCs, of course, and will be spending the winter in both Floridian and Bahamanian waters. B: DIASHIP/Heesen Shipyards, Holland; N: Frank Mulder; H: Aluminum; E: 3/3,500-hp MTUs

133. INEVITABLE      
131'0"  2000
A Floridian who had owned a yacht in the 90-foot range admired the lines of the 127-footer Palmer Johnson Our Way (see no. 146) so much that he had the yard build him this yacht with similar styling. Her elegant decor, fashioned by Patrick Knowles Designs, employs mahogany paneling and sapelli pommele inlays. There's also a bar (with adjoining wine locker) in the starboard formal entry that doubles as a breakfast bar for the owner, since it can be closed off from the rest of the yacht and essentially be made part of the master stateroom. B: Palmer Johnson, USA; N: Builder; H: Aluminum; E: 2/720-hp Caterpillars

134. PRINCESS K

135. ALTEZA            
130'0" 1993
Bright tones of red, yellow, and green cover the large pillow-laden sofa in Alteza's media room, where it's easy to imagine charter guests or the owners gathering for a good evening's entertainment. Sometimes the yacht tows a 26-foot Grady-White rigged for fishing. B: Christensen Shipyards, USA; N: Builder; H: Fiberglass; E: 2/1,450-hp Detroit Diesels
