America's 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #88: Te Manu

#88: TE MANU—161'9"

Te Manu was chartered by at least one high-profile person this year: Peter Munk, a Canadian property developer, who was interviewed aboard while cruising in Montenegro. It was fitting, since he’s one of several investors in a megayacht marina being built in that country. As for the yacht, she has six staterooms, including a king

#89: MICHAELA ROSE—161'5"

In keeping with her seemingly nonstop cruising schedule during the past several years, this 24-year-old has been seen on both sides of the pond this year. She departed the Med in midwinter for our side of the globe, stopping in New York, Boston, and then a few spots in Canada.

#90: ANJILIS—161'0"

Featuring a Glade Johnson interior design, a first for Trinity, Anjilis was expected to be delivered around presstime. She’s owned by repeat clients of the yard (their previous yacht was a 124-footer) and features a swim platform big enough for all eight guests to gather aboard and a circular skylounge with views out to a

#91: LOHENGRIN—161'0"

Talk about a major step: The owner of this yacht bought his first boat, a 126-footer, about a year before he purchased this one, which was already under construction at Trinity Yachts (the person who commissioned her, Rick Hendricks of NASCAR fame, decided to sign a contract for a bigger yacht instead). A series of large oval ports

#92: ZOOM ZOOM ZOOM—161'0"

Like Anjilis (see no 90), this lady has a 14-foot-deep swim platform. Imagine what it would be like to dine there, in a quiet anchorage-yes, dine there, possible thanks to sunshades that can be installed in holders in the deck.

America's 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #93: Aurora

#93: AURORA—160'10"

We’ve mentioned it a few times over the years, but it bears repeating that this boat was the largest fiberglass yacht ever built in the USA throughout the 1990’s. She’s been cruising stateside for nearly two years.

#95: TELEOST—160'5"

Fishing and scuba diving are among the watersports the owner of Teleost enjoys-and you can, too, for a weekly charter rate of $225,000. Even her name evokes passion for the sea: It’s a type of prehistoric fish.

America's 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #96: Newvida

#96: NEWVIDA—160'0"

A refit in 2007 saw this yacht gain a day head on the flying bridge and a wine "cellar" in the saloon. If the owners and guests prefer dining outside, there’s a 12- to 14-person table on the main aft deck and a ten- to 12-person table on the bridge deck-and both are in sight of 32-inch TVs.

#97: INEVITABLE—158'3"

"This project can more accurately be described as a rebuild than a refit because it touched every aspect of the yacht." So said Sijbrand de Vries, managing director of Feadship’s Royal De Vries yard, which rebuilt or refurbished about 200 items aboard Inevitable earlier this year. A blonde-teak interior and a new swim platform, plus

#98: KANALOA—157'5"

Kanaloa has several standout areas, including the VIP stateroom, with a full-wall shoji screen, and the sundeck, where a treadmill and other gym equipment can be set up by the crew, beneath a sunshade that extends out from the radar arch.

#99: CHEVY TOY—157'0"

The ex-Janie is in the hands of an experienced yacht owner who, as his boat’s name implies, is a car dealer. In fact, he’s Gene Reed, who has a nationwide auto group. Since he’s used his previous yachts, 118- and 142-footers, for charitable fundraisers, perhaps he’ll do the same for this one.

#100: LADY JOY—157'0"

Lady Joy had a star-studded christening in New York City last year in October, where her owner, socialite (and ex-wife of financier Marc Rich) Denise Rich, welcomed aboard people like singer Patti LaBelle and designer Nicole Miller. The parade of who’s who continued this summer in St. Tropez, where the yacht hosted a Moulin
