The 197’ (60m) HUNTRESS yacht is a stunning Lurssen pedigree motor yacht designed by Espen Oeino that has been meticulously maintained to the highest standards. She accommodates up to 12 guests in 6 generous staterooms and up to 16 crew in 8 cabins. Her contemporary interior utilizes handcrafted woods, contrasting fabrics, and expert lighting. The master stateroom, located on the main deck, is bathed in natural light and equipped with an en suite featuring dual vanities, a Jacuzzi tub, and a massive aromatherapy shower. The forward section of the sundeck features a Jacuzzi, sunpads, bar, and intimate seating area, while the aft section of the sundeck contains an al fresco dining area as well as chaise lounges for sunbathing. In between these two areas is a fully enclosed, air-conditioned space that converts to either a gym or disco. When the massive glass sliding doors, which fully retract into the superstructure, are opened, the entire sundeck is transformed into a completely open space ideal for large events.

At 190’ (58m), the LADY SHERIDAN yacht, built by Abeking & Rasmussen, features accommodations for up to 13 guests in 7 staterooms. With the same owner and captain since new, she is kept in immaculate condition. Her full-beam, main deck king master suite features a large study, a generous en suite, and a walk-in wardrobe. The master also features an adjacent single room with its own en suite, should another stateroom be needed. Guests are treated to 3 king staterooms and 1 twin on the lower deck, as well as 1 king VIP on the bridge deck. Interior and exterior styling is by yacht designer Donald Starkey, who chose sophisticated, high-end detailing to create a look of opulence on board. The full-displacement motor yacht measures in at 1,099 GT, a large volume for a 190’ (58m) yacht, and is powered by twin Caterpillar engines offering a top speed of 16 knots and a cruising speed of 14 knots, with a 4,000nm range.

With a timeless Dutch pedigree, the 171’ (52m) NITA K II yacht was built by Amels in 2004 and refit in 2012 and 2016. Featuring classic exterior styling by Terence Disdale and an exceptionally detailed interior design and decor by Alberto Pinto and Laura Sessa, she accommodates 12 guests in 5 generous staterooms. The full-beam master stateroom offers an expansive his-and-hers en suite, walk-in wardrobes, and an adjoining lounge or office. Four spacious king guest staterooms are below, 2 of which are VIPs that offer large, jetted tubs and oversized showers. Expansive social areas can be enjoyed both inside and on her outstanding, well-planned exterior decks that feature several seating, dining, and lounging options on all three outdoor levels. She offers at-anchor stabilization, and reliable Cummins power provides a max speed of 15 knots and cruising speed of 12.5 knots with global cruising capabilities of 5,000nm at 11 knots.

Updated in 2016, the 153’ (47m) DAYBREAK yacht represents a unique opportunity to purchase a world-class Feadship motor yacht at a great price. Designed by De Voogt with interior décor by Larvor, she features accommodations for 12 guests in 6 staterooms, including a full-width master stateroom on the main deck and 2 VIP staterooms. She offers guests well-planned exterior and interior spaces, and her reliable CAT 3508 DI-TA main engines provide a range of over 5,000nm at 12.5 knots. Her NAVCOM mechanical and domestic systems were serviced and/or updated in 2018, and she is U.S. duty paid.

Delivered by Intermarine in 2002, the 146’ (45m) BALAJU yacht has been well maintained under the direction and care of the same owner and captain for the past 12 years. Her Zuretti-inspired interior décor is elegant and spacious, featuring a blend of warm neutral tones with colorful upholstery and artwork, which creates a welcoming yet sophisticated environment. She provides luxurious accommodations for up to 10 guests in 5 staterooms including a full-width master suite with private study. From her well-appointed sun deck to her beach club/swim platform, BALAJU contains a variety of spectacular on-deck areas perfect for relaxing, dining, and entertaining.

The 130’ (39.6m) TRANQUILITY yacht built by Hatteras is the best entry-level tri-deck motor yacht on the market. This spacious motor yacht boasts an open plan and provides accommodations for 12 guests with 5 generous staterooms, including a full-beam main deck master suite and full-beam skylounge. She also offers crew accommodations for 8. TRANQUILITY has a proven track record, with a trans-oceanic crossing and extensive cruising along the eastern seaboard, the Bahamas, and the Caribbean, making her the perfect choice for either private or charter use.

Designed by the internationally renowned H2 Designs, the 106’ (32.21m) ANDREIKA yacht sleeps up to 12 guests in 5 spacious staterooms. Her 26’+ beam and creative use of space inside and out give her the volume of a much larger yacht. Built in 2017 to standards usually seen on much larger ships, her interior is 31% larger than a 112′ Westport, yet she also has a remarkable amount of deck space. Twin MTU engines give her a cruising speed of 16 knots and top speed of 20 knots.

Refit in 2016, THE PROGRAM yacht is a stunning 97’ Hargrave with timeless styling outside and contemporary yet comfortable furnishings inside. She accommodates up to 10 guests in 5 luxurious staterooms and sleeps up to 4 crew. Her interior combines shades of blue, brown and white and is highlighted by high-gloss cherry woodwork with camphor burl accents. The expansive flybridge is double the size of most other yachts in her class, extending three-quarters of her length. At-anchor stabilizers provide additional comfort, and twin Caterpillar C-30 engines with 1,550hp each give her a top speed of 21 knots and a range of 1,000nm at 12 knots.

The 96’ (29m) Westship CRU yacht was designed by Jack Sarin and has been exceptionally maintained and updated throughout her ownership, including an extensive refit in 2019.

Equipped with Naiad stabilizers, she is powered by two reliable Caterpillar engines, which give her a cruising speed of 12 knots and a top speed of 17 knots.

With a contemporary design and décor by Giorgio Cassetta in collaboration with Benetti, the 95’ (28.95m) EURUS yacht is a sporty, state-of-the-art vessel from the popular Benetti Delfino series. Sharp and dramatic, her interior boasts accommodations for 12 guests in 5 staterooms, which include a main deck master suite, 2 queen VIPs, and 2 twins. A full displacement hull provides comfortable cruising at 13 knots with a range of 2,300+ nautical miles at 10 knots.

The stunning 80′ (24.4m) Ferretti EVOLUTION yacht has a lovely, light, contemporary interior with accommodations for 8 guests in 4 well-appointed staterooms, plus she sleeps 4 crew in 2 cabins. Two MTU engines allow her to cruise at 24 knots and give her a top speed of 32 knots. Her features include zero-speed gyro stabilizers and a fold-down transom, which creates the perfect beach club or platform for water sports.

The 2008 75’ (23m) Viking Sport Cruiser IMPOSSIBLE DREAM yacht is in turnkey condition and ready for her new owner. She accommodates 8 guests in 4 spacious staterooms that were updated with new soft goods, along with the rest of the yacht, in 2016. She underwent an extensive refit in 2017, and her owners spared no expense bringing her to like-new condition. She has consistently been well maintained and is equipped with an extensive list of upgrades including rebuilt engines that are under warranty until 2021, new teak decks, and zero-speed stabilizers. 

The 75’ DR. NO yacht is among the best examples of the popular Ferretti 750 series offered on the market today. Her sleek, distinguished styling is complemented by her contemporary interior décor. She features accommodations for up to 8 guests in 4 spacious staterooms with 2 crew cabins aft. Powered by V10-2000 MTUs, this head turner can easily cruise at 25 knots and achieve 30+ knots at wide-open throttle. She is equipped with Gyro Zero Speed stabilizers, providing comfort both underway and at anchor.

Delivered by Azimut in 2001, the 70′ (21.34m) C-WEED yacht sleeps 9 guests in 4 staterooms and has been meticulously maintained. Presented in excellent condition with almost everything replaced, renewed, or rebuilt in the past 2 years, C-WEED is without question the nicest 70′ motor yacht available in her class. C-WEED just underwent a top-to-bottom refit in 2019, making her unquestionably the most comprehensively refitted vessel in this size and price range.
