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.

#82: Zoom Zoom Zoom—161’0”

If you’re a fan of HGTV, then you may have seen Zoom Zoom Zoom and her split-level owner’s stateroom on your TV this fall. But the summer of ‘05 is one that the owner and crew will never forget, as some of the crew and Trinity Yachts’ craftsmen rode out Hurricane Katrina onboard at the

#88: Kanaloa—157'5"

#89: Barchetta—157'0"

How can a yacht hit a pothole? When she’s Barchetta and being trailered down the road from her builder’s facility. Turns out a broken water pipe softened up the road and caused a delay during her launch last April. Thankfully no damage occurred, and Barchetta, featuring a bright-red

Though her hull is blue, it should probably be orange, as her owner is a big fan of the University of Tennessee Vols. If you’re an SEC football fan as well, you can buy the yacht for $31.5 million and change the channels on the 50-inch plasma TV in the saloon and the 61-inch plasma TV in the skylounge—or all nine of the pilothouse

#92: Lady Linda—157'0"

Talk about ironies: This yacht was handed over the last week of August, the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, which delayed completion of her construction and delivery in New Orleans.
