In the yacht-spotting world, the most exciting news is often unconfirmed and based on rumor. The bold-named clients often demand the most secrecy, which makes getting straight answers difficult. All of this combined makes Feadship’s launch of Musashi even more intriguing. Hints as to her owner’s identity include her Japan-influenced name (Musashi was a
What Dreams May Come
Trinity’s latest launch has an elegant interior and new hull form.
Mi Sueo was on her way to Boston from Fort Lauderdale when she stopped at Casey’s Marina in Newport, Rhode Island, home to other impressive yachts including the 125-foot Cheoy Lee Namoh and the 157-foot Christensen Nice N’ Easy (currently for
Changing of the Guards
Two well-known mega-yards embark on new futures.
In the first half of 2010, ownership changes were underway at two of the largest mega-yacht shipbuilders in Northern Europe: Oceanco and Blohm & Voss.

For the team of Nuvolari and Lenard, boats are a passion and a business.
I met Carlo Nuvolari at the front desk of my hotel in the Zattare neighborhood of Venice, Italy, in mid-May. Although it was early, the day was already hot—I was regretting my black pants—but Nuvolari looked remarkably comfortable in a tweed jacket, sweater, and long-sleeved shirt. After introductions we began
For the past 25 years, Power & Motoryacht has scoured the globe for information on the world’s 100 largest yachts. And in that time, a lot has changed. In August 1985, when the list began, we wrote, “There are only about 300 private yachts over 100 feet in length in the world.” Today a 100-foot vessel not only wouldn’t make the list, she’d be smaller
Moonen Shipyards tackles new challenges with the Dixon 120.

Moonen is redefining refit with the Dixon 120. After the bankruptcy of Royal Denship shipyard in Denmark, Moonen took over the construction of a 120-foot megayacht, and these are the deck-by-deck floor plans.
The Greatest Escape
With its biggest boat to date, Nordhavn stays true to its oceangoing heritage.

So, right off the top, I’m going to admit that my appreciation for the classical good looks of Retro Blue, Sanlorenzo’s newest semidisplacement SD92, should probably be taken with a grain of salt (and a healthy dollop of open-mindedness) especially by those readers who
The Friendly Giant
This 214-footer‘s adaptability allows her to offer something for everyone.
When you think Feadship, you probably think quality, experience, and precision. Or maybe your mind floods with visions of long graceful hulls with elegant lines. Indeed Trident, Feadship‘s new 214-foot leviathan, has all of the
Deep Blue Explorer
CRN keeps its Blue Eyes focused on the ocean.
On many megayachts, it’s easy to forget that you are actually on the water. You can get so lost in the lavish interior spaces, in enjoying a film in that massive media room, or in soaking up sauna time that you lose sight of the fact that you’re not just staying in a
