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.

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.
"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
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.
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.
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
If you’re familiar with Monaco, you’ll also be familiar-unless you’re very rich or very lucky-with the neck ache you get from looking up at those enormous motoryachts. Last time I was in town, I got lucky: I was looking down.

On one side there was Mohammed Al-Fayed’s 208-foot Sokar. Beyond her was Wedge
Yacht design is an inherently iterative process: From the conceptual sketches to the final production drawings there are seemingly endless tweaks and refinements in a quest for the ideal final product. Sometimes, this process becomes evolutionary, each project building on the genetic makeup of its predecessor. A case in point is Alloy Yachts’ new 40m project, Allogante, whose lineage can be
Sure, I'm excited as I approach Latitude, but like everyone else in the dinghy, I can't help but look past her. In any other place, on any given day, odds are the 170-footer would be the biggest boat in the harbor. But on this afternoon just off Panama City, Latitude happens to be anchored a gull's hop from the 414-foot
If the largest yacht to fly the American flag from her transom is too rich for your blood—she'd easily cost a few hundred million dollars to build today—then how about a $2,900 scale model of her? It's yours if you visit
The Trident 620 from Outer Reef takes much of what this proven builder has learned from its classic line and puts that wisdom to work in a sprightly semidisplacement hull with pod propulsion and a striking profile.
