81. Chamar
186'0" · 1992 Two brothers from London continue to enjoy the largest yacht built by the now-defunct Brooke Yachts. B: Brooke Yachts, England; N: Luigi Sturchio/Don Shead; H: Aluminum; E: 2/3,480-hp MTUs

82. Quest
185'0" · 1976/1989 Yet another vessel originally launched for commercial use that's been converted for yacht service, Quest was constructed as an offshore oil field supply vessel. She was purchased in 1989 by a private owner for reconfiguration as a charter yacht. Presently in Washington state, Quest is for sale for $4.9 million. B: Halter Marine, USA; N: Builder; H: Steel; E: 2/1,760-hp Caterpillars

83. Dream
184'0" · 1999 You may remember this blue-hulled expedition yacht--which was purposely built to look like a commercial vessel--as Samantha Lin. She sold shortly after our list went to press last year. One of the new owner's first trips was to Cannes, where we spotted Dream at anchor in September. She's back stateside and is for sale once again for $21.95 million. B: Halter Marine, USA; N: Builder; H: Steel; E: 2/1,000-hp Caterpillars

84. Paris
184'4" · 1991 A half deck level separates Paris' forward and aft sections, a creative way to maximize space--in fact, it creates four levels forward. Among the areas taking advantage of this are the two saloons on the main deck, one aft and one (naturally) forward. She's used strictly for private cruising and is spending the summer in Greece. B: Amels, Holland; N: Jack Hargrave; H: Steel; E: 2/1,500-hp Caterpillars

85. Lady Christine
182'6" · 2001 Flamed mahogany and elm burl moldings dominate the interior of this new Oceanco, which was just handed over to her European owners. Another highlight: Light-tone Pakistan onyx is backed with glass in the master bath to create a transparent effect. Large vertical windows fore and aft dominate her profile. B: Oceanco, South Africa/Holland; N: The "A" Group--Monte Carlo SAM; H: Steel; E: 2/2,200-hp Caterpillars

86. Varmar VE
182'0" · 1986 A Greek shipping executive keeps this Feadship in Greece. Each of his two brothers owns a Feadship in the 150-foot range. B: Feadship/C. Van Lent en Zonen, Holland; N: H.W. De Voogt & Zoon; H: Steel; E: 2/1,500-hp Caterpillars

87. Princess Lauren
181'4" · 1984 This charter yacht, available for $182,000 per week in the western Med, is a little out of the ordinary: Her dining room is on the upper deck. But it's worth climbing the stairs to get there, since the spot seats up to 16 and while shaded, is open to a magnificent deck area, providing superb all-around views. Maple, beech, and walnut lend warmth to the saloon, back on the main deck. B: CRN, Italy; N: Builder; H: Steel; E: 2/2,450-hp Deutz-MWMs

88. Southern Cross lll
181'0" · 1986 Southern Cross III is definitely one of the busiest charter yachts out there, commanding $210,000 per week. Guests can work out in the gym, then soak in the outdoor Jacuzzi, and then sunbathe, all without ever leaving the upper deck. The yacht spent the holidays in St. Bart's with some celebrities aboard, including actor Stephen Dorff, Red Hot Chili Peppers singer Anthony Keidis, and Maverick Records chief Guy Oseary. B: Nishii, Japan; N: Jon Bannenberg/builder; H: Fiberglass; E: 2/4,588-hp MTUs

89. Le Pharoan
180'5" · 1989 Ghaith Pharoan of Saudi Arabia named his yacht after himself. You can recognize her because the face of King Tut is painted on the yacht's transom and each side of her funnel. The theme continues inside, as he has Egyptian art onboard. B: Feadship/C. Van Lent en Zonen, Holland; N: H.W. De Voogt & Zoon; H: Steel; E: 2/1,400-hp Caterpillars
