#51: ICE BEAR—173'0"

Ice Bear is a familiar sight in Alaskan waters. Like SuRi (see next listing), she’s been the subject of some pretty crazy rumors. One had actor Mel Gibson as her owner, while another had Microsoft cofounder Bill Gates as the lucky guy.

#52: PASSION—173'0"

If you think her bright-yellow sunpads (nicely complemented by the Jacuzzi’s water) look cool, wait ‘til you enter her game room. It’s fitted with a 72-inch plasma TV, perfect for hooking up an Xbox console; an air hockey table; and a handful of full-size arcade games. The owner selected them both to

America's 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #53: SuRi

#53: SuRi—173'0"

From Seattle to Tahiti this year, dozens of people were convinced that actor Tom Cruise owned this yacht. Why? Because he named his daughter Suri. The truth is, SuRi (as the yacht’s name is properly displayed) is owned by the same gentleman who has been cruising aboard JeMaSa (see no. 71) for a few years. SuRi is a

America's 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #57: Battered Bull

#57: BATTERED BULL—170'9"

Considering local officials in Grenada are trying to attract more mega-yachts, they were probably pleased to see Battered Bull cruising there in January. Since the yacht’s owners are diving enthusiasts, hopefully they had a chance to explore the island’s most famous site, the wreck of the

America's 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #58: Time For Us

#58: TIME FOR US—170'7"

The ex-Halcyon Days now belongs to a Midwestern couple who have had a few yachts over the years. They purchased this one after parting ways with Burger Boat Company over Hull #503, a 153-footer they had commissioned. This nearly 171-footer is available for charter, for $140,000 to $150,000 per week, and can accommodate 15 people

America's 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #60: Beauport

#60: BEAUPORT—168'11"

For sale for $4 million, Beauport retains much of her original rugged design (she was a Canadian Coast Guard vessel) but inside she’s all yachty comfort. The owner’s suite-more like a private apartment-is forward on the helicopter deck, for example. Plus there are two dining rooms, one of which is called the library dining

Enterprise V is among the megayachts that pulled into the megayacht marina Yacht Haven Grande in StThomas when it first opened in 2007. She was in Fort Lauderdale when we were going to press. She’s also for sale for $22.5 million, having had just one owner since delivery more than 15 years

#63: HAIDA—168'0"

If you ever visit Mystic Seaport museum in Connecticut, check out the various documents pertaining to this classic cruiser, Hull No. 277 from the famed Bath Iron Works.
