America’s 100 Largest Yachts 2007 #14: Kismet
Forget the gym; hit the disco if you charter this yacht (550,000 EUR, or about $742,000 at presstime) and need to burn off some calories! The skylounge transforms into the floating version of Studio 54 with little effort: moving some chairs aside to make room on the floor and flicking a switch to activate awesome lighting. The yacht also has a hatch and crane for a motorcycle, which is likely for the owner, not charterers, to use.
