90. MIDNIGHT SAGA • L: 187'8"; Y: 1978
If you’re a discriminating charterer who just can’t leave home without your entourage, then Midnight Saga might be right for you. She can accommodate up to four staff people with prior arrangement—and that’s in addition to the accommodations for 12 friends and/or family members she has on a standard basis.
B: Cammenga Jachtbouw, Holland; N: W. De Vries Lentsch; H: Steel; E: 2/1,350-hp Ruston Paxmans

91. CLEOPATRA C • L: 187'0"; Y: 1985
Graced with a canoe stern, Cleopatra C gives the illusion of being from an earlier age. Her owner, who we’re told is Egyptian, has a home in Cannes.
B: Amels, Holland; N: Jon Bannenberg/Diana Yacht Design; H: Steel; E: 2/1,410-hp Caterpillars

92. OLYMPIA • L: 187'0"; Y: 2002
Since her owner prefers to keep his yacht to himself, Olympia has never been the subject of a photo shoot, so we don’t know what her interior looks like. We do know, however, that the Jon Bannenberg team. was hired to redo some of it when the yacht changed hands during construction.
B: Feadship/De Vries Scheepsbouw, Holland; N: De Voogt Naval Architects; H: Steel; E: 2/1,500-hp Caterpillars

93. SAGITTA • L: 187'0"; Y: 2001
Picture a yacht of this size cruising along at 22 knots--that’s what the gray-hulled Sagitta can do. She’s one of the last yachts designed by the late Jon Bannenberg and has been spotted in Greek waters.
B: Oceanfast, Australia; N: Jon Bannenberg/Phil Curran; H: Aluminum; E: 2/4,000-hp MTU-DDCs

94. CHAMAR • L: 186'0"; Y: 1992
While British siblings owned Chamar for many years, we hear they sold her to a Canadian family that’s based in Hong Kong. Little information is known about the yacht.
B: Brooke Yachts, England; N: Luigi Sturchio/Don Shead; H: Aluminum; E: 2/3,480-hp MTUs

95. BARBARA JEAN • L: 185'3"; Y: 2001
Barbara Jean’s grand main entrance has a staircase flanked by mirrored alcoves containing statues of Poseidon and Amphitrite. And Feadship claims that if you draw an invisible line from each side of the doorway to the corresponding side of the stairs, they’ll match up.
B: Feadship/De Vries Scheepsbouw, Holland; N: De Voogt Naval Architects; H: Steel; E: 2/1,500-hp Caterpillars

96. LADY J • L: 185'0"; Y: 1976/1989
Lady J was for sale last year for $3.9 million, but we’ve been unable to learn if she sold. She’s a former supply vessel for offshore oil fields.
B: Quality Shipyard, USA; N: Builder; H: Steel; E: 2/1,760-hp Wartsila Nohab Polars

97. PARIS • L: 184'4"; Y: 1991
Paris squeezes in a half deck between her forward and aft sections, creating four levels forward. This permits, among other things, two saloons on the main deck, one at each end of the yacht.
B: Amels, Holland; N: Jack Hargrave; H: Steel; E: 2/1,500-hp Caterpillars

98. PANGAEA • L: 184'0"; Y: 1999
Underwater scooters and a 35-foot Predator known as Oceana are just some of the "toys" aboard Pangaea. She’s an expedition charter yacht with some of the world’s most exotic locales on her itinerary--Bora Bora, the Coral Sea, and Costa Rica, just to name a few.
