71. CHANTAL MA VIE | L: 152'0" Y: 1984
If you were in Newport this summer, then you may have spied Chantal Ma Vie while she was entertaining charter guests. Hopefully they indulged in the large Jacuzzi just forward of the swim platform. B: John Nylen, USA; N: Builder/Jim Krogen; H: Steel; E: 2/700-hp Caterpillars

72. MONITOR | L: 152'0" Y: 1982/1999
Beautiful wood paneling, as well as watertoys ranging from windsurfers to scuba gear, are highlights of this charter yacht. B: Picchiotti, Italy; N: Arthur DeFever/Murray & Associates; H: Steel; E: 2/850-hp Caterpillars

73. MONTIGNE | L: 152'0" Y: 1986
Montigne is in the midst of her second `round-the-world trip and is making select legs available to charterers. She'll be spending time in Thailand and New Zealand this winter before heading off to the western shores of the States next summer. B: Feadship/De Vries Scheepsbouw, Holland; N: H.W. De Voogt Naval Architects; H: Steel; E: 2/900-hp Caterpillars

74. FRANCINE | L: 151'3" Y: 1989/1999
Mahogany accentuates the main-deck lounge's club-like feel; it's really more of a smoking lounge where the owners enjoy after-dinner drinks and cigars. The traditional saloon is up on the bridge deck, where a collection of Biot glass is on display. B: Benetti, Italy/International Marine Service, France; N: Builder/Tom Fexas Yacht Design; H: Aluminum; E: unknown

75. AFFINITY | L: 151'0" Y: 1999
A Long Island couple who's well-known on the yacht-racing circuit took Affinity on one heckuva maiden voyage--to New Zealand, to observe the last America's Cup race. The yacht totes a custom 27-foot Pursuit and more impressive, the two-person Jacuzzi tub in the master stateroom has a rope pattern fashioned of more than 700 pieces of water-cut jade. B: Delta Marine, USA; N: Delta Design Group; H: Fiberglass; E: 2/1,000-hp Caterpillars

76. DETROIT EAGLE | L: 151'0" Y: 2001
The cars weren't the only things attracting attention in Daytona Beach last February--Detroit Eagle caused a stir, too, being the largest yacht in the marina. With three engines that develop nearly 13,000 hp, one of which is a gas turbine, she has more muscle than a dozen NASCAR racecars. The prize possession of Roger Penske, the yacht also has an impressive display of racing helmets. B: Feadship/De Vries Scheepsbouw, Holland; N: De Voogt Naval Architects; H: Aluminum; E: 2/3,650-hp MTU-DDCs and 1/5,600-hp TF50 gas turbine

77. SALLY ANN | L: 151'0" Y: 1996
Vacationers in Newport, Rhode Island, got a good look at this Delta-built yacht this summer. One thing they didn't get a look at, though, is the tropical mural in the master head, which replicates one found aboard Fortunate Sun (see no. 82). The yacht is currently for sale and was one of the first to visit Rozelle Bay in Sydney, Australia, an emerging superyacht destination. B: Delta Marine, USA; N: Delta Design Group; H: Fiberglass; E: 2/855-hp Caterpillars

78. SEA JEWEL | L: 151'0" Y: 1987
Not only does this yacht have a formal saloon for lounging, but she also has a private lounge in the master suite and a separate one for guests, just outside their staterooms. She departed Porto Cervo in Sardinia in September in preparation for her winter charter season in the Caribbean, where she's available for $135,000 per week. B: Feadship/De Vries Scheepsbouw, Holland; N: H.W. de Voogt Naval Architects; H: Steel; E: 2/1,050-hp Caterpillars

79. TURMOIL | L: 151'0" Y: 1996
A clothing retailer who sold his business to Sears earlier this year has kept Turmoil on the go since delivery day. It's no wonder, since years before he signed the contract he'd completed a circumnavigation onboard a sailboat Palmer Johnson built for him. This yacht has reportedly been to Siberia twice. B: Palmer Johnson, USA; N: Dick Boon/Vripack Yachting; H: Aluminum; E: 2/820-hp Caterpillars

80. THE HIGHLANDER | L: 151'0" Y: 1986
The hardest-working yacht in New York Harbor, The Highlander, owned by the Forbes heirs, hosts myriad "schmooze cruises" for clients of the family's eponymous magazine. The green-hulled yacht totes a color-coordinated helicopter, BMW motorcycles, and tenders. B: Feadship/De Vries Scheepsbouw, Holland; N: Jon Bannenberg/de Voogt Naval Architects; H: Steel; E: 2/1,060-hp Detroit Diesels
