The World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2009 #46: Madsummer
Madsummer | ( tie ) 257'2"
Do you have a million bucks you’re looking to do something with? Well, you could use it to charter this American-owned 257-footer for the week. And what a yacht you’d get. From a fleet that includes mid-20-foot sportboats and a plethora of watertoys to a fully equipped sauna and gym, this baby-blue-hulled vessel is ready to cater to your every whim, be it in the Med or the Caribbean. But really, with a 39,626-gallon fuel capacity that provides a range of 6,000 nautical miles at her 12-knot cruise speed, almost any cruising destination is within your reach. Also included in that price tag is a wicked-cool view of your surroundings from Madsummer’s “skydeck,” which towers 60 feet above the sea and features a swimming pool, hot tub, and bar. Ready for another fact? Madsummer’s two watermakers can produce 6,600 gallons of fresh water per day, which is the average number of gallons used by the average Jacksonville, Florida, home in one month.
