76. DETROIT EAGLE          
151'0"  2001
Ohio native and International Motorsports Hall of Famer Roger Penske took delivery of his latest megayacht in time to enjoy the summer in New England. She has an aluminum and composite superstructure, LIPS propellers, and a gas turbine to give her the 33-plus-knot speeds she attains. 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     
151'0"  1996
Classic mahogany paneling makes Sally Ann a real beauty, as does a tropical mural in the master head. One smart touch we'd like to see more of on these yachts: a head concealed in the mast on the flying bridge for the convenience of sunbathers. B: Delta Marine, USA; N: Delta Design Group; H: Fiberglass; E: 2/855-hp Caterpillars

78.  SEA JEWEL      
151'0"  1987
After wrapping up the charter season in the Med, Sea Jewel headed to the Caribbean. Stops on her itinerary for the winter season include St. Lucia and St. Thomas. We'd do anything to be a fly on the wall when the guests crank up the karaoke machine in the sky lounge after dinner. B: Feadship/De Vries Scheepsbouw, Holland; N: H.W. de Voogt & Zoon; H: Steel; E: 2/Caterpillar 3508s

79.  TURMOIL          
151'0"  1996
A successful clothing retailer has had this blue-hulled beauty on the go so much over the past five years--she was in the Arctic this summer--that essentially the only time she's sat still was during refueling. Turmoil was the first purpose-built expedition-style yacht of the 1990s, a style that's still quite popular. B: Palmer Johnson, USA; N: Dick Boon/Vripack Yachting; H: Aluminum; E: 2/820-hp Caterpillars

80.  THE HIGHLANDER     
151'0"  1986
If yachts could leave grooves in the water, then the Statue of Liberty would have a ditch at her feet from The Highlander, which makes almost nightly cruises past her during the summer. The yacht hosts corporate events for the renowned Forbes family. B: Feadship/De Vries Scheepsbouw, Holland; N: Jon Banneberg/H.W. de Voogt & Zoon; H: Steel; E: 2/1,060-hp Detroit Diesels

81.  MYSTERE C.I.       
150'10"  1987
Mystere C.I. has cruised the Northeast in recent years. B: Lloyd's Ship, Australia; N: Builder; H: Aluminum; E: unknown

82. FORTUNATE SUN            
150'0"  1992
This yacht spent the summer chartering in the Med, remaining there through the early part of the fall. One of her tenders is a 22-foot Shamrock. B: Tacoma Boatbuilding/Puglia Shipbuilding, USA; N: Gerhard Gilgenast; H: Steel; E: 2/775-hp Caterpillars

83. BELLINI       
150'0"  1999
Bellini cruised back and forth between the Atlantis resort in the Bahamas and Palm Beach, Florida, this year. She hosted a party one evening at Atlantis that was attended by luminaries such as Sol Kerzner and Lee Iacoca. B: Trinity Yachts, USA; N: Builder/Paragon Design; H: Aluminum; E: 2/2,250-hp Caterpillars

84.  NOBLE HOUSE                
150'0"  1997
Cherry wood and African makore lend an elegant look to this yacht's interior. She underwent a refit last year to comply with the MCA safety regulations governing large yachts. She's for sale for $19.45 million. B: Trinity Yachts, USA; N: Builder/Paragon Design; H: Aluminum; E: 2/2,250-hp Caterpillars

85.  AMORAZUR II                 
149'10"  1994
A complete decor change two years ago thanks to Terence Disdale gave this Palmer Johnson a classic, understated look. Warm tones envelop each room, and there's a piano in her saloon. For on-the-water fun, there's a pair of hydrobikes. She charters for $145,000 per week in the Bahamas and is for sale for $18.5 million. B: Palmer Johnson, USA; N: Builder/Tom Fexas Yacht Design; H: Aluminum; E: 2/1,900-hp Deutz-MWMs

86. PERFECT PERSUASION
149'9" 1997
Perfect Persuasion traversed the Western Med all summer long with charter guests aboard. Ports of call included Nice and Rome. Her four staterooms below decks can transform into two large suites. B: Oceanfast, Australia; N: Phil Curran/Donald Starkey; H: Aluminum; E: 2/3,500-hp Alsthom Paxmans

87. CHEROSA             
149'7"  1999
A green hull makes Cherosa immediately recognizable, and you'd be remiss not to admire her lines up close if you get the chance--there's not a single flat panel on her hull. The subtle compound curves make her a real conversation piece. A couple who split their time between Connecticut and Florida's east coast live aboard her a good deal of the year. B: Swiftships, USA; N: Tim Borland/Builder; H: Aluminum; E: 2/2,250-hp MTUs

88. BIG D          
147'6"  1988
A 29-foot beam ensures the entertainment spaces aboard Big D are exactly that, big. Ten to 12 guests can enjoy her extensive deck areas, including a shaded sun deck. She's available for charter in the Med for $91,000 and up per week. B: Hitachi Zosen, Japan; N: Jack Hargrave; H: Aluminum; E: 2/1,150-hp Caterpillars

89. LADY PITA            
147'6"  1985
Lady Pita was seen in the Northeast this summer. She has a distinctive blue hull and vertical oval windows, providing terrific views on cruises. She's for sale for just shy of $8.9 million. B: Sterling Yacht, Japan; N: Jon Bannenberg; H: Fiberglass; E: 2/1,300-hp Caterpillars

90. MOECCA              
147'6"  1993
Moecca is the largest power-driven catamaran in the world and can reach a top speed of 29 knots. B: Oceanfast, Australia; N: Phil Curran/Jon Bannenberg; H: Aluminum; E: 2/3,500-hp MTUs
