60. Lady Lola
L: 200'0"  Y: 2002
The newest Oceanco was expected to be delivered to her owner around presstime. Lady Lola's main deck, designed solely for the owner's use, features a private saloon and entertainment area aft of a central stairway plus a large owner's suite forward, boasting panoramic views. Guests can relax in the main-deck saloon, where they can gather around a grand piano, or choose to hit the water on an assortment of watertoys, including the requisite PWCs. Lady Lola will make her official debut at the Monaco Yacht Show in September. B: Oceanco, South Africa/Holland; N: The "A" Group--Monte Carlo SAM; H: Steel; E: unknown

61. Madiz
L: 200'0"  Y: 1902
A Greek gentleman has owned this centarian for several years, keeping her in the Athens area. He has taken her to other places, however, including Monaco, where Madiz led the yacht parade for Monaco Classic Week in 1997. B: Ailsa Shipbuilding, Scotland; N: G.L. Watson & Co.; H: Iron; E: 2/650-hp Maybach-Mercedes

62. Mylin IV
L: 200'0"  Y: 1992
Mylin IV is among the first yachts to have visited the Royal Langkawi Yacht Club in Malaysia--cruising grounds well off the traditional path for the yachts on this list--and has also spent time in Israel. The yacht was commissioned by the late Ted Arison, founder of Carnival Cruise Lines, and is used by his family for personal cruises. B: Feadship/Royal Van Lent Shipyard, Holland; N: De Voogt Naval Architects; H: Steel; E: 2/3,300-hp MTUs

63. Méduse
L: 198'10"  Y: 1996
From the Canary Islands to the Caribbean Islands, Méduse has been there. Mindful of the pristine anchorages that can be found worldwide, her owner, Paul Allen (see no. 11), had a sewage-treatment system installed onboard. As he's an avid diver, there's also a decompression chamber on his yacht, whose name means "Jellyfish" in French. He must like leggy sea life: His next yacht, is said to be underway at Lürssen, is called Octopus. B: Feadship/De Vries Scheepsbouw, Holland; N: De Voogt Naval Architects; H: Steel; E: 2/1,700-hp Caterpillars

64. Nara
L: 198'5"  Y: 1979
Nara's owner is from the Middle East. For years it was easy for even a novice megayacht spotter to instantly recognize this lady way off on the horizon because she carried five satcom domes. Thankfully, advances in technology have permitted her to lose some of the clutter. B: Feadship/Royal Van Lent Shipyard, Holland; N: De Voogt Naval Architects; H: Steel; E: 2/3,475-hp MTUs

65. Paraffin
L: 197'2"  Y: 2001
The American couple who commissioned this Feadship decided to design the interior themselves. Since they often entertain large groups, sometimes with just a day's notice, they created assorted eating areas and equipped the galley to handle the crowds. In fact, the design brief specified the creation of an area that would be able to accommodate 50 people for a three-hour wine-tasting menu. So what about that wine-tasting? There's a temperature-controlled wine "cellar" that can hold more than 400 bottles and stowage for about 450 crystal wine goblets. B: Feadship/Royal Van Lent Shipyard, Holland; N: De Voogt Naval Architects; H: Steel; E: 2/2,000-hp Caterpillars

66. New Horizon L
L: 197'0"  Y: 1983
While most of the yachts on our list have changed hands one or two times, New Horizon L served as the home--literally--for her owner, Prince Leo Van Leeuwen of Lignac, since delivery. But the 84-year-old Prince died last summer, so the yacht is for sale. Interested buyers should note that unlike some yachts that never seem to leave the dock, New Horizon L cruised the Caribbean every May through October and the Med from December through April, with the remaining two months set aside for service. B: Feadship/Royal Van Lent Shipyard, Holland; N: Jon Bannenberg/De Voogt Naval Architects; H: Steel; E: 2/3,000-hp MTUs

67. Paloma
L: 197'0"  Y: 1965
The Goulandris clan of Greece rarely takes Paloma out of her home port of Marina Zea near Athens. The heirs also own several other yachts. B: Ishikawajima-Harima, Japan; N: Builder; H: Steel; E: 2/1,744-hp Detroit Diesels

68. Giusy Blue
L: 196'11"  Y: 1976/2001
Yet another converted yacht, this time a former military vessel. Not much is known about her. B: Peenwerft, Germany; N: Builder; H: Steel; E: unknown

69. Lady Beatrice
L: 196'9"  Y: 1993
Two brothers share ownership of Lady Beatrice and cruise throughout the Mediterranean when she's not in her home port of Monaco. B: Feadship/Royal Van Lent Shipyard, Holland; N: De Voogt Naval Architects; H: Steel; E: 2/1,600-hp Caterpillars
