70. Frequency
L: 195'0"  Y: 1998
Ebony from Madagascar and lacewood from Australia are among the beautiful interior touches on Frequency. She's the largest yacht built on U.S. soil since the 1930's. In an interesting move, the original Singaporean owner (a Turk is the current owner) had the galley laid out on three levels, keeping frying areas separate from vegetable-washing areas. No one need worry about weight-gain, thanks to a dance floor on the sky-lounge deck. B: Palmer Johnson, USA; N: Sparkman & Stephens; H: Aluminum; E: 2/1,950-hp Caterpillars

71. Elanymor
L: 193'7"  Y: 1974/1999
A British owner hired Vosper Thornycroft to transform a pilot vessel into this hardy-looking "adventure yacht," as he calls her. He wanted most of the original superstructure's styling to be retained, although he did request the addition of a helipad and helicopter hangar. B: Amels, Holland/Vosper Thornycroft (UK), England; N: Builder; H: Steel; E: unknown

72. Intuition II
L: 193'7"  Y: 1974/1999
A sistership to Elanymor (see. no. 71), Intuition II is the pride and joy of a Long Islander. The yacht is used strictly for private cruises, featuring a gentleman's-club-like interior and full-height glass bulkheads that bring the outside in. B: Amels, Holland/Vosper Thornycroft (UK), England; N: Builder; H: Steel; E: 1/1,330-hp Smit Slikkerveer electric motor and 3/650-hp Deutz-MWMs

73. Altair
L: 193'6"  Y: 1974/1998
Altair was purchased as a pilotship and converted into this luxurious cruiser by a New Yorker. Her master stateroom, forward on the main deck, has a king-size bed, a Jacuzzi in "her" head, and a shower in "his." She charters in the Med for $224,000 per week. B: Amels, Holland/Oceanfast, Australia (conversion); N: Builder/Jon Bannenberg (conversion); H: Steel; E: 2/838-hp Paxmans

74. Capella C
L: 193'6"  Y: 1968/1985
An Australian owns this converted pilot boat, which is often found in Monaco. B: Scheepsbouwwerf Boines, Holland; N: Builder; H: Steel; E: 3/600-hp Deutz-MWMs

75. Senses
L: 193'6"  Y: 1999
Nearly every room onboard Senses provides a water view, and the interior was designed by the famous artist/designer Philippe Starck. She was built from the keel up as an expedition yacht, not as a commercial vessel that was later converted to private use. In an unusual move, she was classed for navigation in heavily iced waters. Her owner, French yachtsman Jack Setton, is selling her for $37 million. B: Schweers, Germany; N: Francis & Francis/Claus Kusch; H: Steel; E: 2/1,550-hp Deutz-MWMs

76. Calixe
L: 193'0"  Y: 1986
Even though this yacht has changed hands in recent years, her name has remained unchanged. An American who tends to keep a low profile retains Calixe for private cruises. B: Feadship/De Vries Scheepsbouw, Holland; N: De Voogt Naval Architects; H: Steel; E: 2/1,605-hp Deutz-MWMs

77. Marala
L: 193'0"  Y: 1931
Typical of her era, Marala has a funnel. Sardoc, a Panamanian company, is her owner, although she is available for charters in the Meditterranean for $70,000. B: Camper & Nicholson, England; N: C. E. Nicholson; H: Steel; E: 2/750-hp MANs

78. Libertad
L: 192'0"  Y: 1986/1992
Ten people can be accommodated in five staterooms aboard, and a variety of indoor and outdoor seating areas are the favorite spots to gather while the yacht cruises along at 13 knots (top speed is just over 15 knots). B: Elsflether Werft, Germany; N: Donald Starkey/builder; H: Steel; E: 2/1,720-hp Caterpillars

79. Ulysses
L: 192'0"  Y: 2002
A New Zealand couple who previously owned a traditional white megayacht opted for more room and a more rugged look with this just-delivered expedition yacht. Inside, a cornucopia of colors from coral to black highlight an Art Deco decor. Cuba is one of her first stops; she'll eventually cruise to New Zealand for the America's Cup race. B: Trinity Yachts, USA; N: Builder; H: Steel; E: 2/Caterpillar 3512Bs. Editor's note: While our issue was on press, a fire broke out aboard the yacht as she was being finished at Trinity’s Lockport, Louisiana, facility. No one was injured, but the yacht did suffer damage and could not be delivered as scheduled. We will update this space as developments are made public.
