131. MIRAGE 132'0" 1991
Talk about having the wind in your hair: Mirage can hit 45 knots. While parties of up to ten can be accommodated in the staterooms, the yacht can actually host about 50 people for a dockside affair. She spent the summer and fall in the Med. Check out her Web site: B: DIASHIP/Heesen Shipyards, Holland; N: Frank Mulder; H: Aluminum; E: 3/3,500-hp MTUs

132. NORWEGIAN QUEEN 132'0" 2000
The "Norwegian Queen" of this yacht is also the owner. Stainless steel columns sparkle inside, as do tiny stars that are inlaid into marble and other surfaces. B: Trident Shipyard, USA; N: Wesley Carr; H: Fiberglass; E: 2/2,285-hp MTUs

133. LIFE OF RILEY 131'8" 1989
Life of Riley underwent a big refit at Delta Marine about two years ago. Besides gutting her for new electronics and other systems, the work included creating a spacious cockpit, painting the hull a dazzling shade of green, and repanelling the entire interior with mahogany. B: Delta Marine, USA; N: John Schubert/Delta Design Group; H: Fiberglass; E: 2/624-hp Caterpillars

134. SEAGULL 131'3" 1980
This is the second Feadship for her owner, a retired Fort Lauderdale gentleman. B: Feadship/De Vries Scheepsbouw, Holland; N: De Voogt Naval Architects; H: Steel; E: 2/675-hp Caterpillars

135. QUEEN OF DIAMONDS 131'2" 1970
This Feadship has circumnavigated the globe (52,000 miles, to be exact) and is planning a route around South America. To read about her five-year global trip, see "Queen of the Oceans," which was published in our February issue and is posted elsewhere on our Web site. B: Feadship/Royal Van Lent Shipyard, Holland; N: De Voogt Naval Architects; H: Steel; E: unknown

136. SILVER SHALIS 131'2" 1987
The same New Yorker who commissioned this yacht still owns her. He's a major player in Manhattan real estate and is among the parties hoping to participate in the rebuilding of the World Trade Center. B: Abeking & Rasmussen, Germany; N: Diana Yacht Design; H: Aluminum; E: 3/3,435-hp MTUs

137. INEVITABLE 131'0" 2000
A Floridian enjoys this trideck yacht, featuring an elegant decor fashioned by Patrick Knowles Designs. One of our favorite features is the bar in the starboard formal entry. It can double as a private breakfast bar for the main-deck master stateroom, since it can be closed off from the rest of the yacht and essentially be made part of that room. B: Palmer Johnson, USA; N: Builder; H: Aluminum; E: 2/720-hp Caterpillars

138. PRINCESS K 131'0" 1993
Princess K features embossed leather inside to stunning effect, thanks to Claudette Bonville & Associates. B: DIASHIP/Heesen Shipyards, Holland; N: Builder; H: Aluminum; E: 2/2,250-hp MTUs

139. ALTEZA 130'0" 1993
Alteza turned heads in Gloucester, Massachusetts, two summers ago when she pulled in among the rough-and-rugged fishing boats that dominate the harbor. A local restaurateur told the Boston Business Journal that Ted "Mouth from the South" Turner was onboard. B: Christensen Shipyards, USA; N: Builder; H: Fiberglass; E: 2/1,450-hp Detroit Diesels

140. CHARISMA 130'0" 1995
This yacht spends time in Florida and the Bahamas as well as the Caribbean. She also features an abundance of watertoys, like a handful of PWC, a kayak, dive and snorkel gear, and a sailboat. B: Hatteras Yachts, USA; N: Jack Hargrave; H: Fiberglass; E: 2/2,400-hp Detroit Diesels
