    I second your choice for the Mulder 59 ! From all points of view the greatest boat ( in that size category) recently launched !! Watch www.jachtwerfmulder.nl

    120 feet and over,

    Beautifull boats, I noticed someone mentioned in this thread a few message ago than yachtbuilders has some way lost the taste of good design when yacht get´s bigger than 120 feet.

    Have to say I agree with this opinion, but would also point this model for you. This is an good example as yacth is out of your taste of the range just slightly, but exterior design including a small part of older outlook´s.

    Maindeck could be related to hull design especially aft-deck > see what I mean > kind of circle taste better as "four corners" when speaking about boats >

    Btw. Does this size necessary require any crew if couble is well experienced ?

    Good to see another Mulder enthousiast. If you want to take a look on board of the 59 Convertible and Hardtop, take a look at my website.

    if money was not an issue i`d go for the Azimut Open 86 or the recently launched (or rather still to be launched) Canados Open 90

    Their design is so futuristic.

    However i`ll have to dream on

    Octopus.

    Does everything I could ever want a yacht to do, within reason. I'm not so concerned with entering every harbour - it's so big people can see it way off shore if you're worried about making an impression. You can come ashore in one of the 7 tenders, the submarine or one of the two helicopters... plenty of choice!

    I suppose you could keep going forever in terms of size until your megayacht becomes a floating city large enough to land aircraft (think bigger than an Nimitz class carrier), but that's just silly. ;)

    Back to Oceana and Lars' information about interior.
    The interior design and follow-up was done by Sam Giorgiovanni, an Australian who did quite a few Oceanfast interiors in a very relaxed style, inspired by local artwork.
    I like the guy's work a lot!

    Sunseeker

    You'll have to excuse me 'cause I'm kinda new at this. I thought I'd start with a simple topic, so...

    My favourite yacht is unquestionably the Sunseeker 105, mainly because it's the yacht that got me interested in yachts in the first place when I originally saw it. It may be slightly older now, but it's a truly beautiful vessel, even more so when you see it up close; perfect for its size. Its not too slow either (30 knts isnt' bad) and the interior is still classy.
    For me looks tend to be most important (followed closely by speed :D )

    Of course I like other yachts as well; Pershing 115 (fast!), Baglietto 115 Heesen 37m (such presence), Palmer Johnson 120, Sunseeker Predator 108 (great interior style and looks stunning on the water)...

    Any comments on my top 6 favorites?
    Ps. at the moment I'm just pleased the photo thing worked:

    Does anyone know what happened to the 110' that Sunseeker was planning on building? As for the Heesen and the PJ, both are very nice. I went on both at the Miami Boat Show and was very impressed. Still waiting on getting aboard the Predator and the Pershing, i'll just have to keep looking at the pictures :D

    Someone said that Acajou (wrecked at a storm in Greece) is now sold to be restored hopefully! This would be really nice.:)

    I agree with yachtluver on Pelorus and Carinthia VII, especially Pelorus' interior. I really like Ad Lib too and Air. Something smaller would have to be Riva 68 Ego.

    I like Pelorous.....wish I could see pics of the interior. From what I've read it sounds absolutely amazing.

    boat of my choice

    My parameters are;

    - Small enough for me to enjoy captaining and going into the nice nooks in the bays of Turkish Mediterrenean coast and Greek Islands;
    - Big enough to enable me spend long periods without feeling cramped;
    - Two level + a fly bridge, which will allow me to be with my friends and family while I am crusing the boat (not a raised pilot house);
    - Large open spaces with good shade to avoid the heat of the sun;
    - Enough range for avoiding fueling every few hundred miles and setting cruising itineraries based on fuel stops;
    - Good sea keeping hull (not planning), and maximum speed around 25 knots;
    - Timeless and a contemperary design which will not look old fashioned in a couple of years;
    - Top quality of production and equipment to avoid possible headaches as best as possible.

    So, for me the abv parameters translate to a boat in +/- 90 feet size with a range of 2500-3000 sea miles in economical speed, build in aluminium for durability with very good systems and sound insulation.
