81. MYSTERE | L: 150'10" Y: 1987
Mystere has cruised the Northeast in recent years. B: Lloyd's Ship, Australia; N: Builder; H: Aluminum; E: unknown

82. FORTUNATE SUN | L: 150'0" Y: 1992
This yacht was expected to depart the Med by the end of October, after spending the summer there. She underwent a refit two years ago to keep her in tip-top shape for the charter market. B: Tacoma Boatbuilding/Puglia Shipbuilding, USA; N: Gerhard Gilgenast; H: Steel; E: 2/775-hp Caterpillars

83. LADY LINDA | L: 150'0" Y: 1999
Known as Bellini until late last year, this yacht was purchased by a couple who stepped up from a 124-footer. The owners are generous supporters of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County. B: Trinity Yachts, USA; N: Builder/Paragon Design; H: Aluminum; E: 2/2,250-hp Caterpillars

84. NOBLE HOUSE | L: 150'0" Y: 1997
If you're looking for inspiration for a great yacht party, consult the crew of Noble House, which is famous--some may say infamous--for hosting an annual affair in the Med for the crews of all the other yachts that spend the summers there. This year's party featured a black-and-white theme and literally thousands of sushi rolls, courtesy of the chef and a small army of helpers. Their hard work was not lost on the partygoers, who promptly gobbled up every last roll. B: Trinity Yachts, USA; N: Builder/Paragon Design; H: Aluminum; E: 2/2,250-hp Caterpillars

85. AMORAZUR II | L: 149'10" Y: 1994
A complete decor change three years ago thanks to Terence Disdale gave this Palmer Johnson a classic, understated look. Warm tones envelop each room, and there's a piano in her saloon. For on-the-water fun, there's a pair of hydrobikes. B: Palmer Johnson, USA; N: Builder/Tom Fexas Yacht Design; H: Aluminum; E: 2/1,900-hp Deutz-MWMs

86. PERFECT PERSUASION | L: 149'9" Y: 1997
Perfect Persuasion now has a blue hull instead of the light-gray one that she's had since her launch day, when she was known as Perfect Prescription. The beautiful color caught people's attention in the Med this spring and summer, as did a party the yacht hosted during the Cannes Film Festival; in fact, the party made international headlines, thanks to Reuters. The yacht was chartered by RaknRoll Entertainment, a Hollywood firm providing public relations, celebrity management, marketing, and event planning for major names in entertainment, journalism, and other fields. B: Oceanfast, Australia; N: Phil Curran/Donald Starkey; H: Aluminum; E: 2/3,500-hp Alsthom Paxmans

87. CHEROSA | L: 149'7" Y: 1999
Cherosa calls West Palm Beach home for half of the year and Connecticut home for the other half, although some intrepid yacht-watchers told us they saw her in the Newport, Rhode Island, area late this summer. The owners truly live aboard much of the time. B: Swiftships, USA; N: Tim Borland/Builder; H: Aluminum; E: 2/2,250-hp MTUs

88. BIG D | L: 147'6" Y: 1988
Ten to 12 guests can enjoy her extensive deck areas, including a shaded sundeck. Perhaps it's just coincidence, but the yacht's name is also a nickname for Dallas, Texas. Then again, it's also the same as the name of Canada's only 24-hour bingo hall (honest, look it up). B: Hitachi Zosen, Japan; N: Jack Hargrave; H: Aluminum; E: 2/1,150-hp Caterpillars

89. TRIUMPHANT LADY |L : 147'6" Y: 1985
The former Lady Pita has a blue hull and vertical oval windows. We like the new name better ("Pita" stood for "pain in the a--.") B: Sterling Yacht, Japan; N: Jon Bannenberg; H: Fiberglass; E: 2/1,300-hp Caterpillars

90. RUSALKA | L: 147'6" Y: 1986
Rusalka gets her name from the Russian word for water nymph. She's reportedly for sale. B: Sterling Yacht, Japan; N: Jon Bannenberg; H: Fiberglass; E: 2/1,300-hp Caterpillars
