91. MOECCA | L: 147'6" Y: 1993
Moecca is the largest power-driven catamaran in the world and has cruised the Great Lakes and the St. Lawrence Seaway, among other places. About three years ago many people in the Detroit area were convinced that actor Mel Gibson owned her because he was seen golfing in the same area where the yacht was docked. B: Oceanfast, Australia; N: Phil Curran/Jon Bannenberg; H: Aluminum; E: 2/3,500-hp MTUs

92. GRAN FINALE | L: 147'0" Y: 2001
A California businessman has been enjoying this stylish cruiser for nearly a year now. While he's quite happy with every aspect of the yacht, he and his wife are particularly delighted with the sky lounge, where the boldest shades of blue adorn the bulkheads and carpeting. B: Delta Marine, USA; N: Delta Design Group/Espinosa; H: Fiberglass; E: 2/2,400-hp Caterpillars

93. ZEIN | L: 147'0" Y: 1929
Zein was once owned by Aristotle Onassis. John Issa, chairman of SuperClubs, has owned her since 1985 and renamed her after one of his twin daughters. For most of the past 13 years, the yacht has remained in Negril, Jamaica, for the use of Grand Lido Negril's guests. B: Camper & Nicholson, England; N: Builder; H: Steel; E: 2/650-hp Deutz-MWMs

94. CAMPBELL BAY | L: 146'7" Y: 2002
This new launch, which has a dark classic walnut interior, is headed to France for her first cruise. B: Hakvoort Shipyard, Holland; N: Diana Yacht Design; H: Steel; E: 2/960-hp Caterpillars

95. LADY LOLA | L: 146'3" Y: 1994
Intricate wood inlays of rosewood and oak, plus abundant marble and onyx, dazzle the senses inside this Benetti. There's no steering station on the flying bridge, leaving the deck completely devoted to outdoor relaxation. B: Benetti, Italy; N: Builder; H: Aluminum; E: 2/2,200-hp Deutz-MWMs

96. ARTFUL DODGER | L: 145'0" Y: 1990
If the 43-inch plasma-screen TV in her saloon doesn't tickle your fancy, then maybe one of the six sets of dive and snorkeling gear will. Then again, there's always the waterskiing equipment or a PWC or two. B: DIASHIP/Heesen Shipyards, Holland; N: Builder; H: Aluminum; E: 2/2,575-hp MTUs with KaMeWa waterjets

97. LADY M | L: 145'0" Y: 2001
The largest yacht Intermarine Savannah has built just sold a few months ago, after making her world debut live on CNBC in February from the Yacht & Brokerage Show in Miami. Her trilevel layout is highlighted by cherry-stained white maple. B: Intermarine Savannah, USA; N: Builder; H: Fiberglass; E: 2/1,400-hp Caterpillar 3512s

98. LISERON | L: 145'0" Y: 1952/1989
This wooden-hulled U.S. Navy minesweeper was rebuilt from the deck up to serve as a charter yacht in southeast Alaska. True to her original naval requirements, not a single piece of ferrous material was used in her rebuild; her hull ribs are white oak. She accommodates 20 guests in ten cabins. B: Tacomba Boatbuilding, USA; N: Builder; H: Wood; E: 2/Cleveland diesels (hp unknown)

99. PATRICIA | L: 145'0" Y: 2001
The first of the Vision series from Benetti has sumptuous accommodations. Our favorite: the master stateroom, for its rotating bed (to take in multiple views) and private deck. B: Benetti, Italy; N: Builder; H: Aluminum; E: 2/1,300-hp Caterpillars

100. ULTIMATE | L: 143'4" Y: 1996
Donald Starkey gave the interior of this yacht some pretty clever touches. Chinese-inspired screens adorn a red lacquered chest on the main deck; these screens can rotate to close off the saloon from the dining area. B: Benetti, Italy; N: Builder; H: Aluminum; E: 2/2,200-hp Deutz-MWMs
