50. Shanaz
L: 206'6"  Y: 1981
John Latsis (see no. 2) generously gave this yacht to a Saudi prince several years ago. While she shares her name with the yacht ranked 47th on our list, Shanaz leads a different life, entertaining in Greece and the rest of the Med. B: Mitsubishi Industries, Japan; N: Terence Disdale/builder; H: Steel; E: 2/2,100-hp Daihatsus

51. Big Roi
L: 206'0"  Y: 2002
An American was expected to be taking delivery of his new expedition yacht around the time we were going to press. Sea trials in early May had her topping out at 17.4 knots, exceeding expectations. She enjoys a 4,000-nautical-mile range at a 14-knot cruising speed. While the owner was waiting for this yacht to be completed, he purchased the 184-foot Dream, now called Pangea (see no. 95). B: Royal Denship, Denmark; N: Tom Fexas Yacht Design; H: Steel; E: 2/Caterpillar 3512Es

52. Lady Aviva
L: 205'0"  Y: 1998
Lady Aviva has been spotted in both the Med and in French Polynesia. The owner is quite a private individual, so he won't permit the yacht's interior, designed by Andrew Winch, to be photographed. B: Feadship/Royal Van Lent Shipyard, Holland; N: De Voogt Naval Architects; H: Steel; E: 2/2,200-hp Caterpillars

53. Cakewalk
L: 204'5"  Y: 2000
Cherrywood lends a warm ambiance to this lady's interior, and the talents of Frits de Voogt, who was prodded out of retirement by the owner for the job, lend classic appeal to her profile. When they're not admiring the dramatic staircase that flows upward through all four decks, featuring intricately fashioned metal leaves on its balustrade, guests can watch any of 75 films or listen to one of 500 CDs anywhere onboard--even if someone is watching another movie or listening to another CD--thanks to a central system accessed via touch screens. B: Feadship/Royal Van Lent Shipyard, Holland; N: De Voogt Naval Architects; H: Steel; E: 2/2,000-hp Caterpillars

54. Virginian
L: 204'2"  Y: 1990
When a British citizen purchased Virginian about five years ago, he gave the already classic-looking beauty, featuring a rounded stern, a blue hull for further appeal. Available for charter, she is said to be run like a first-class, private estate. Want to learn more? You can get in on the action for $245,000 per week. B: Feadship/Royal Van Lent Shipyard, Holland; N: De Voogt Naval Architects; H: Steel; E: 2/1,630-hp MANs

55. Sarah
L: 203'4"  Y: 2002
As is often the case with yachts commissioned by Middle Eastern owners, there's been a publicity embargo on this new launch. The few details we do know, other than the owner's nationality, are that the yacht underwent sea trials late this spring and features the interior handiwork of Donald Starkey. B: Amels, Holland; N: unknown; H: Steel; E: unknown

56. Claire T
L: 202'5"  Y: 1973
If you're the kind of person who likes having a choice, then you'll appreciate the two master staterooms onboard Claire T. For sale for $5.9 million, she accommodates 25 guests, who'll enjoy her gameroom and dive equipment. B: Astilleros y Talleres Celaya, Spain; N: Sparkman & Stephens; H: Steel; E: 2/1,125-hp Caterpillars

57. Esmeralda
L: 201'7"  Y: 1981
This yacht has been chartered by rocker John Bon Jovi and his band as well as the British American Tobacco Grand Prix racing team. Esmeralda was originally designed by Italian designer Dejorio, and even though subsequent owners have imprinted their own style on the decor, his signature is still visible in the saloon's original woodwork and polished black granite. Her summer rate is $185,000 per week and up. B: Codecasa; Italy; N: Builder; H: Steel; E: 2/1,500-hp MAKs

58. New Sunrise
L: 201'1"  Y: 1999
An American investor and restaurateur had this yacht built as Numptia after enjoying a charter vacation in the mid-1990's. The entire lower deck is devoted to staff and machinery spaces, ensuring the crew is quite comfortable. That reserves the main deck mostly for the owner and guest accommodations, although the formal entry to starboard does have a staircase, which leads up to the main lounge areas. B: CRN, Italy; N: Builder; H: Steel; E: 2/2,000-hp Caterpillars

59. Il Vagabondo Again
L: 200'7"  Y: 1987
This yacht was originally called Il Vagabondo but did change names under subsequent owners, which explains her current name. She's Saudi-owned and winters in the French Riviera port of Golfe Juan. B: CRN, Italy; N: Terence Disdale/Builder; H: Steel; E: 2/3,312-hp Deutz-MWMs
