A twilight cruise aboard Nirvana to celebrate our annual exclusive “World’s 100 Largest Yachts” list.

By Diane M. Byrne — August 2001

It was as if we'd placed an order with the gods above: Picture-perfect blue skies and warm temperatures greeted top New York television and radio personalities as well as writers from major magazines and newswire services when we invited them on a twilight cruise in July to celebrate our annual exclusive "World's 100 Largest Yachts" list.

And what better way to celebrate this famous feature, now in its 16th year, than to cruise aboard a megayacht? The 118-foot Hatteras Nirvana, with her warm oak ambiance and comfortable outdoor seating, was the perfect setting for the evening. Representatives from CNNfn, ABC-TV, WCBS radio, Q-104 radio, and other media outlets spent the evening exploring her three decks and learning about the megayacht lifestyle from our staff, the charter experts from The Sacks Group, and Nirvana's owner.

Many of these same stations and publications developed stories based on the evening. In fact, Maria Milito, a DJ on Q-104, raved about the yacht the next day throughout her show and urged her listeners to pick up the August issue.
