18. A

Megayacht A -  photo by Guillaume PlissonApparently, A is for “award.” Philippe Starck’s design for the yacht won awards when she was introduced, including the Most Innovative Exterior Yacht Design of the Year 2008 at the Asia Boating Awards Ceremony and the Most Innovative Yacht at the Cannes Boat Show in 2009. Her striking profile and axe bow took large-yacht design in bold new directions and you may notice her influence in these pages and beyond. — Jason Y. Wood

22. Pelorus

Click to enlarge image - Megayacht  PelorusAny number of big yachts these days are put together with steel hulls and aluminum superstructures, a fact that raises a serious question: Since steel and aluminum are galvanically incompatible, how the heck do you join the two together without causing the eventual dissolution of a given yacht into a frothy fizz? The answer is “explosive welding,” a process that joins two metals at a high rate of speed via an intervening explosive layer. What results from explosive welding is an atomically bonded joint that does not commingle galvanically, thus preventing galvanic corrosion. — Capt. Bill Pike

29. Attessa IV

Click to enlarge image - Megayacht AttessaEver wonder what it might be like to land a helicopter on a vessel like the Attessa IV? A Jacksonville friend of mine who’s also a retired chopper pilot used to do it all the time. “The ideal situation is for the yacht to be quartering into the wind at a fairly slow speed,” says John Tipton, “and you approach from the stern if you can, usually at a sort of catty-corner angle. Once you get your skids on the pad they stay there because of the non-skid surface.” Did Tipton ever have his heart in his throat when making an approach? “Every time,” he laughs, “in fact once I’d completed a landing I’d have to exercise my fingers for a while, after I’d pried ’em loose from the cyclic and collective controls. Landing on a moving vessel like that tends to be pretty intense.” — Capt. Bill Pike

30. Christina O

Years ago, shortly after the death of Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis, I had the good fortune to pilot one of his finest cargo vessels across Lake Superior. What was so memorable about the experience was the splendor of it all. Not only was the comparatively immense pilot’s cabin a sumptuous affair, with decorator curtains, a sunken lounge, and large windows instead of portholes, the big vessel had a swimming pool (a rarity on cargo ships to say the least), which, for intensely practical reasons, had been drained for the Novemberish crossing of the lake. No wonder Onassis’s Chistina O was such a beauty! — Capt. Bill Pike

31. Madame Gu

Built under the project name Dream, Madame Gu is the largest Feadship thus far and the largest yacht built in Holland. She’ll be the belle of the ball in port, thanks to her striking turquoise hull, but we look forward to catching a glimpse of her revving up to her reported top speed of 24 knots under quadruple MTU power. Even though she measures 324 feet 10 inches, Madame Gu was designed for an owner’s party of 12, though she carries a crew of 36. She stows a helicopter in a bow hangar, while fold-down and flip-up hatches along her sides conceal color-matched tenders and form balconies. — Diane M. Byrne


37. Tatoosh

Megayacht Tatoosh Tatoosh has a fuel capacity of 120,739 gallons, which means at $4.30 per gallon of diesel, she costs $519,177.77 to fuel up. That’s enough to pay for freshman year at a private college for your local high school baseball team’s entire starting lineup. — Kevin Koenig

42. Nero

Yeah, she’s almost a dead ringer for J.P. Morgan’s famous Corsair, but, in my humble opinion, she’s both more technical and way more elegant. Indeed, if you click here and simply feast your eyes on the video of this vast retro vessel sweeping through mellifluous seas you’ll see what I mean. There’s nothing like a mélange of teak decking, varnished caprails, and bronze capstans riding a hull that harks back to the golden age of yachting. Really! All Nero needs is a dolphin striker under the bowsprit, although perhaps that would be way too sailboaty. — Capt. Bill Pike
