America's 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #13: Martha Ann
#13: MARTHA ANN—229'6"
Even though all the guest staterooms on this new yacht’s lower deck feature king-size beds, no doubt someone’s going to make a run for the queen-equipped VIP, considering the cabin is just forward of the skylounge on the bridge deck. No worries if guests want to visit with each other: A circular glass elevator will whisk them up or down in seconds. But we’ll take bets everyone will instead meet in the sports bar on the upper deck, because it features a 110-inch TV that’s part of a home-theater system.
