106. GRAY MIST III                
142'0"  1995
Some people step up to a larger yacht after only a few years, but the owners of this lady took 26 years to do so! Their previous yacht, a 110-footer, was built by the same commercial yard that built this one. Gray Mist III has some clever touches, such as a faux surface that simulates limestone on the fireplace dividing her saloon and dining area and more faux surfaces on the bulkheads to simulate weathered paint for a homey look. B: Breaux Bay Craft, USA; N: Tim Borland; H: Aluminum; E: 2/1,500-hp Caterpillars

107. IRISH ROVER     
142'0"  1995
This yacht was originally 10 feet shorter, but she was extended a few years ago by previous owners. She has an elegant interior, complete with a grand staircase, by Claudette Bonville. B: Feadship/C. Van Lent en Zonen, Holland; N: H.W. De Voogt & Zoon; H: Steel; E: 2/775-hp Caterpillars

108. NAMOH                 
142'0"  1995
Namoh's owners have traveled extensively for years onboard yachts; in fact, this 142-footer is one of about a dozen they've enjoyed over the years. The unusual name is actually their last name spelled backwards. B: Christensen Shipyards, USA; N: Builder; H: Fiberglass; E: 2/1,800-hp Deutz-MWMs

109. PARAFFIN            
142'0"  1996
A gentleman in the candle-making business christened this yacht in honor of his profession but sold her last year, in anticipation of the delivery of his latest yacht (see no. 12). That owner has kept the name. Paraffin features Cuban mahogany paneling. B: Palmer Johnson, USA; N: Builder; H: Aluminum; E: 2/1,800-hp Detroit Diesels

110. L'ELEGANCE                
141'1"  1988
Pear wood sets the scene onboard this aptly named lady. B: Feadship/C. Van Lent en Zonen, Holland; N: H.W. De Voogt & Zoon; H: Steel; E: unknown

111. KAHALANI          
141'0"  1993
If the name rings a bell, it's likely because she used to be part of the now-defunct yacht co-ownership program run by The Ocean Group a few years ago. Today Kahalani is on the charter circuit. B: Feadship/De Vries Scheepsbouw, Holland; N: H.W. De Voogt & Zoon; H: Steel; E: 2/775-hp Caterpillars

141'0"  2000
Singer-songwriter Jimmy Dean recently sold this lady, which he had christened Big Bad John and which was the largest yacht he's had in his 40 years of boating. A gentleman from Oregon purchased her over the summer and took her to Christensen for a complete interior change plus the installation of a hot tub and a fiberglass hardtop with a pull-down, 50-inch, plasma-screen TV. B: Christensen Shipyards, USA; N: Builder; H: Fiberglass; E: 2/2,000-hp DDC-MTUs

113. VICTORY LANE          
141'0"  2001
OK, pay attention, this is going to get confusing. Felix Sabates, co-owner of Trinity Yachts, commissioned this yacht under the name you see here, which he gives all his big boats. But when another owner who had a 150-footer under construction decided to sell his boat and commission a replacement 150-footer (which won't be ready for nearly two years), Sabates sold him Victory Lane, permitting him to keep the name since she's just an interim yacht. Whew! B: Trinity Yachts, USA; N: Builder; H:Aluminum; E: 2/1,800-hp MTU-DDCs

114. MAGNIFICO     
140'0"  1991
Magnifico has made a few trips up and down the West Coast between Alaska and Mexico over the past few years. She was one of the first big yachts to visit the Grand Bay resort in Manzanillo, Mexico. She has a long bar in the saloon where charterers and the owner's family like to gather. B: Christensen Shipyards, USA; N: Builder; H: Fiberglass; E: 2/1,460-hp Detroit Diesels

115. WESTSHIP ONE          
140'0"  2001
Part floating villa, part watersports platform, this yacht debuted several months ago as the flagship of the Westship series. There's an elaborate marble mosaic inlay in the sole forward of the dining area and an onyx-topped bar in the saloon. Scuba tanks and gear are stowed in her lazarette in custom lockers, while overhead are fishing rods aplenty. A few steps forward lies a small pantry-like area, which contains a wine cooler, refrigerator, and freezer. B: Westship World Yachts, USA; N: Builder; H: Fiberglass; E: 2/2,285-hp MTUs

116. DREAM SEEKER        
139'0"  1984
Dream Seeker totes a 19-foot Pursuit rigged for fishing. Other fun things the owners and charterers can take advantage of are the double and slalom water-skis, kayaks, and dive gear. She'll be in Asian waters this winter. B: Feadship/C. Van Lent en Zonen, Holland; N: H.W. De Voogt & Zoon; H: Steel; E: 2/1,165-hp Caterpillars

117. HIS GRACE      
138'0"  1989
A Californian keeps His Grace on the West Coast. Her interior has a good deal of mirrors, stainless steel, and marble instead of the more traditional choice of wood. B: Westport Shipyard (Westship), USA; N: Paolo Caliari/Builder; H: Fiberglass; E: 2/1,315-hp Deutz-MWMs

118. HALCYON        
137'1"  1982
Etched-glass panels dividing the saloon from the dining area and a comfortable bar where you'd expect to find a country kitchen stand out as features on this charter yacht. Expect to see her in the Western Med next summer, where her high-season rate will be $80,000 per week. B: Feadship/De Vries Scheepsbouw, Holland; N: H.W. De Voogt & Zoon; H: Steel; E: 2/650-hp Caterpillars

119. BOSSY BOOTS II        
136'0"  1998
This was the largest yacht thus far from Intermarine Savannah until the new 145-footer launched (see no. 97). Honduras mahogany and eucalyptus highlight her interior. B: Intermarine Yachts, USA: N: Paragon Design/Luiz De Basto; H: Fiberglass; E: 2/2,260-hp MTUs

120. ATLANTICA     
135'0"  2000
It's practically de rigeur for megayachts to have carpeted soles in their saloons, but Atlantica features hardwood soles and area rugs, underscoring the homey feel. A mural in the master stateroom depicts an open-sea vista, while one in the master head is a beach scene. B: Christensen Shipyards, USA; N: Builder; H: Fiberglass; E: 2/1,800-hp DDC-MTUs
