101. LORD JIM 143'0" 1991
This long-range motoryacht has elegant woodwork and a relaxed atmosphere. She's cruised both sides of the Atlantic, including the Caribbean, Tobago, and Turkey. B: Hakvoort Shipyards, Holland; N: Builder; H: Steel; E: 2/775-hp Caterpillars

102.MARJORIE MORNINGSTAR 143'0" 1985
This lady has been a globetrotter for nearly the past decade. B: Nishi Shipyard, Japan; N: Builder; H: Aluminum; E: 2/1,010-hp Mitsubishis

103.STARSHIP 143'0" 1990
In case her name doesn't convey the "star" idea, then her interior decor should do the trick: It's remininscent of Star Trek. Starship is a charter yacht that also totes a helicopter, a 26-foot Intrepid, and a handful of PWC. B: Van Mill Shipyard, Holland; N: Peter Beeldsnijder; H: Aluminum; E: 2/775-hp MTUs

104.GRAY MIST III 142'0" 1995
If you'll be at the luxurious Fisher Island resort near Miami this winter, then you'll have a good chance of seeing Gray Mist III. The yacht features a fireplace that divides her saloon from her dining area; its surface is treated with a faux finish that's intended to simulate limestone. B: Breaux Bay Craft, USA; N: Tim Borland; H: Aluminum; E: 2/1,500-hp Caterpillars

105.IRISH ROVER 142'0" 1995
As many as ten people can enjoy cruising aboard this elegant Feadship, which is expected to be in the Caribbean this winter. She has a grand staircase and an interior by noted Fort Lauderdale designer Claudette Bonville. B: Feadship/Royal Van Lent Shipyard, Holland; N: De Voogt Naval Architects; H: Steel; E: 2/775-hp Caterpillars

106.BIG PLAY 142'0" 1995
For several years this lady was known as Namoh, but she changed hands recently. She's still on the charter circuit, though, and even has her own Web site: www.bigplaycharters.com. B: Christensen Shipyards, USA; N: Builder; H: Fiberglass; E: 2/1,800-hp Deutz-MWMs

107.AZURE LEISURE 142'0" 1996
Yet another yacht that recently changed hands; she was formerly known as Paraffin and owned by the founder of the Yankee Candle Company. The current owners had her undergo a decor change, although they've kept the Cuban mahogany paneling. B: Palmer Johnson, USA; N: Builder; H: Aluminum; E: 2/1,800-hp Detroit Diesels

108.ST. JAMES 142'6" 1996
Because her owners have a lot of grandchildren, St. James has abundant indoor and outdoor lounging areas, including a Jacuzzi that the kids really enjoy. There are also fine art and antiques onboard. B: St. James, USA; N: Builder; H: Aluminum; E: 2/750-hp Detroit Diesels

109.PRIMADONNA 142'0" 2002
Making her debut on our list, Primadonna is owned by a gentleman from Las Vegas. He had her adorned with an amazing amount of custom glasswork, some of which features etching in shell patterns. For further information, see "Show Girl," published in our November issue and also posted elsewhere on our site. B: Christensen Shipyards, USA; N: Builder; H: Fiberglass; E: 2/750-hp Caterpillars

110.L'ELEGANCE 141'1" 1988
Pear wood sets the scene onboard this aptly named lady. B: Feadship/Royal Van Lent Shipyard, Holland; N: De Voogt Naval Architects; H: Steel; E: unknown
