America's 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #97: Inevitable

#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

America's 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #98: Kanaloa

#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

Third Time’s the Charm

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

Golden Girl

I am walking down the quay at the megayacht marina in Genoa, Italy. I see a big, white trideck. And a big, white trideck. And a big, white trideck.

Palmer Johnson's Hokulani

And a big... gold... performance cruiser?

A 150-footer, to be exact, painted "champagne" with black accents--even the liferaft canisters and

Alloy 40m Allogante

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

Palm Paradise

"We need to pick a fight," I whispered to my boyfriend, Ben, needling him in the side. "Let's make it a big one with lots of shouting. And tears. I can't handle all this dreaminess."

It was night one of our three-day trip to the Little Palm Island Resort and Spa in the lower Florida Keys. After

Go-Anywhere Attitude

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

World's 100 Largest Yachts 2008

Missile detection systems. Fifty Navy SEALs and/or Royal SAS servicemen as crewmembers. Escape pods that jettison under water to let their high-profile owners get away from paparazzi or pirates. These are just some of the crazy concepts the mainstream media has about megayachts.

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #1: Al Salamah

#1: AL SALAMAH—456'10"

When it comes to private yachts, oftentimes a small group of people is paid to keep quiet. But in reference to this nearly 500-footer, a lot of people seem to be getting paid—and apparently pretty well—because few details (well, at least reasonably reliable ones) have come out. We know she spends most of her time

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #2: Rising Sun

#2: RISING SUN—452'8"

One and a half football fields long. About 140 feet longer than the distance from home plate to the Green Monster in Fenway Park in Boston. And 16 feet longer than the height of the iconic Arch of Wembley Stadium in London. No matter how you measure her, Rising Sun is just huge, and that means it's hard to find docking
