151. SENSEI 127'0" 1990/1996
Sensei was refitted more than five years ago to house two Harley-Davidsons in individual aft garages. The yacht was put up for sale last year after the owners died suddenly, and while we've heard a buyer did emerge, we've been unable to determine if the name has changed.

153. ALTA 127'0" 1987
Previously known as Talon, an active charter yacht for many years, Alta is also a charter yacht.

155. ACANIA 126'0" 1929
Acania, a classic fantail motoryacht, once belonged to silent film actress Constance Bennett. The U.S. government used her for a variety of things in World War II and during the early years of the space program. She's now a West Coast-based private cruiser. B: Pusey & Jones, USA; N: J. H. Wells; H: Steel; E: unknown

156. BIG EASY 126'0" 2001

158. LADY ALLISON 126'0" 1978

159. LA MONTRACHET 126'0" 1986
