#70: HAPPY DAYS—164’0”

This new launch boasts 7,500 square feet of living area. The owner’s suite on the upper deck has a dining area with windows that lower to let in cool breezes.

#74: TRITON—163’0”

Because Triton is set up for reef diving and long-term cruising, the owners and guests naturally will want video footage of some of their excursions.

#76: Lady J—162’6”

Launched as an oil-rig supply vessel, this converted craft, sporting an astounding 40-foot beam, has spent significant time in Seattle over the past several years. If you’ve been following this list for a while, you might notice the LOA above is shorter than what we’ve previously given. Turns out her official registration with the U.S.

America’s 100 Largest Yachts 2006 #80: Michaela Rose

#80: Michaela Rose—161’5”

This yacht spent the summer in Greece, although the recent trip from Chile to Antarctica must have been even more fascinating, as the owner and guests had an ornithologist onboard to learn about albatrosses and other species.
