How To Staff A Yacht The Right Way.

When an owner decides to build a yacht, he seeks out a shipyard suited to realize his dreams. The builder shapes the hull, installs the engines, and wires in the latest technology. Though her launch gets all the attention, it

The PMY 100 Largest Yachts 2011

When fans of The PMY 100 open their August issue, the first thing they check is whether there’s a new No. 1. This year there isn’t: Eclipse holds that spot just as she did last year. And it’s not unusual for a yacht to repeat. Savarona held the top spot through the ’90s before being slowly bumped down the list in 2003 by Octopus, which held No. 1 for two

Design: 120-meter yacht by Nuvolari-Lenard for Oceanco

Design of the Future

It’s Not Easy Being Green

Some people have trouble thinking of a megayacht as an eco-friendly vessel, which is understandable. Fuel and freshwater capacities are measured in the thousands, if not tens of thousands, of gallons. Some yachts devote entire refrigerators to keeping fresh flowers, and most maintain enough food

Customized 52-foot Viking

Just Do It

 

When this owner decided to run and fish his battlewagon himself, nothing was going to stop him, not even muscular dystrophy.

Easygoing Virginian Steve Jones loves to chase big fish. He also has a hereditary and slowly progressing form of muscular dystrophy that severely limits his mobility, especially in his legs. And since boats don’t come rigged and

Megayacht Painting

Reflections of Perfection

It’s an incredible task to create a flawless yacht finish.

First steps include making sure the surface of the boat is smooth, which is just as important as how the paint is applied.
