#13: MARTHA ANN—229'6"

Even though all the guest staterooms on this new yacht’s lower deck feature king-size beds, no doubt someone’s going to make a run for the queen-equipped VIP, considering the cabin is just forward of the skylounge on the bridge deck.

#15: LADY ANNE—224'7"

Venice, Italy, is one of the European cities Lady Anne visited this summer. Apparently the owners are big fans of cooking, so they have their own galley in their suite.

Of course, she is also outfitted with plenty of creature comforts,

#24: APRIL FOOL—199'10"

Despite what other yachts her size range feature, April Fool has just four guest staterooms. Her owner planned to cruise with just intimate parties, so he didn’t feel the need to add more.
