80. Izanami
L: 191'9"  Y: 1993
To say that Larry Ellison (see no. 28) is an avid yachtsman is like saying Bill Gates does okay for himself financially. This militaristic-looking yacht, with nary a curve in sight, has been spotted in the Bahamas and California. The basketball court on the aft deck has caused more than a few double-takes, too. He's commissioned a new yacht, reportedly under construction at Lürssen. B: Lürssen, Germany; N: Norman Foster/builder; H: Aluminum; E: 2/5,875-hp MTUs

81. Henriette
L: 191'1"  Y: 1950
Part of the Latsis fleet (see no. 2), this lady is used primarily by John Latsis's daughter. B: Welding Shipyard, USA; N: John H. Wells; H: Steel; E: 2/950-hp Busch-Sulzers 

82. Seawolfe
L: 190'8"  Y: 1957/2001

Astilleros Palma in Spain transformed this salvage tug, which was built with an ice-strengthened hull, into a private vessel for a Greek owner, who has the yacht for sale. She contains a formal saloon on the main deck, where the four guest suites and VIP suite are also located, plus another saloon up on the owner's deck, diagonal to a private dining area. B: Smit Kinderdijk, Holland/Astilleros Palma, Spain (conversion); N: Dhr Huisman/owner; H: Steel; E: 2/1,500-hp Smit/MANs

83. Pegasus
L: 189'3"  Y: 2001
If relaxing in a pub-like lounge and feeling warmth radiate from the marble sole in the head in the morning are up your alley, then run, don't walk, to your charter broker to get aboard Pegasus. She's available for $295,000 per week in the Med this summer and features a dramatic Marc-Michaels interior. B: Oceanco, South Africa/Holland; N: The "A" Group--Monte Carlo SAM; H: Steel; E: 2/1,650-hp Caterpillars

84. Lady Mona K
L: 189'0"  Y: 1986
Not only does Lady Mona K have a his-and-her head in the master suite, but she also has his and her Jacuzzi tubs there. The yacht can accommodate 16 people in the owner's party and is for sale for $26 million. B: Amels, Holland; N: Jon Bannenberg/Diana Yacht Design; H: Steel; E: 2/1,410-hp Caterpillars

85. Princess Tanya
L: 188'10"  Y: 1961
Princess Tanya was once owned by the American publisher Walter Annenberg but has changed hands a few times since launch. If the vast CD library onboard this classic charter yacht doesn't tickle your fancy, then perhaps you can hum a few bars for someone to pick out on the grand piano in the saloon. She's spent the summer thus far entertaining charter guests in various Med ports of call, including Monaco, Sardinia, Naples, and Antibes. Look for her in the Caribbean this winter. B: Austin & Pickersgill, England; N: Builder; H: Steel; E: 2/840-hp Busch-Sulzers

86. Excellence III
L: 187'10"  Y: 2001
Built for Herb Chambers, the American who is said to be the largest car dealer in New England, Excellence III has an interior by Donald Starkey. Among her notable features: Her sky lounge converts to a theater (with surround sound, naturally). She's available for charter for $265,000 to $280,000 per week, depending on location. B: Abeking & Rasmussen, Germany; N: Builder; H: Steel; E: 2/1,500-hp Caterpillars

87. Ultima III
L: 187'9"  Y: 1998
You can typically spot Ultima III in Gustavia, St. Barts, in the winter months. She's owned by Revlon chief Ron Perelman, who with his wife actress Ellen Barkin has welcomed aboard the likes of actress Susan Sarandon, actor Tim Robbins, lifestyle doyenne Martha Stewart, and former President Gerald Ford. B: Abeking & Rasmussen, Germany; N: Builder; H: Steel; E: 2/1,877-hp Caterpillars

88. Midnight Saga
L: 187'8"  Y: 1978
Like many of the elite charter yachts on our list, Midnight Saga has seen her share of celebrities. British pop singer Robbie Williams treated several friends to a week-long cruise on the French Riviera two years ago. The gentleman who's owned this yacht since 1987 sold her recently in anticipation of taking delivery of a smaller, same-named yacht from Hakvoort Shipyard in Holland this year. B: Cammenga Jachtbouw, Holland; N: W. De Vries Lentsch; H: Steel; E: 2/1,350-hp Ruston Paxmans

89. Cleopatra C
L: 187'0"  Y: 1985
Some owners drive to the marina to board their yachts, others fly in their private jets to rendezvous with the vessels in remote island areas. The owner of Cleopatra C merely has to walk out his back door in Cannes, since she's moored behind his villa. B: Amels, Holland; N: Jon Bannenberg/Diana Yacht Design; H: Steel; E: 2/1,410-hp Caterpillars
