America's 100 Largest Yachts 2008 #45: Starfire

#45: STARFIRE—178'0"

You may feel as if you’ve stepped back in time to the 1920’s or 1930’s aboard Starfire, given her decor. But she’s a thoroughly modern maiden, with high-speed WiFi, a helicopter landing area, and, of course, stereos and TVs in all guest rooms and lounges. It’s also worth noting that this charter yacht features a brother-brother team: "Big brother" Carl Sputh is the captain, while "little brother" Ryan Sputh is the bosun.
