Dream Boats and Mega Yachts.


 While I could happily spend my day in an open runabout built to look like an old wood one.



A boat I have admired and sigh each time I pass by it sitting like a gem 
at it's private dock is the San Juan 48.

Once aboard I keep wanting to go back.



The navy blue hull looks like a sapphire on the water. 
Small for a yacht by some standards the lines of the San Juan 48 are crisp and clean.



  Built in limited production they exude superior craftsmanship. 
Definitely a dream boat.

A garage for the tender.


Available with fly bridge too.

Prestige Yachts such as the 550S feature a euro style look
Excluding the swim platform, hull length is 52 ft.


What I like about the interior is it's ceiling, simple.


Skylights in the helm, salon area.


Master stateroom


Galley looking to aft seating.


Sliding rear sun shade.

I would have liked a larger outdoor seating area.
  A completely different feel compared to the San Juan 48.

Of course a Viking yacht such as this 60 ft.doesn't disappoint either.

The Sunseeker 73 Manhattan I was curious.
A former client invited us to visit.


I liked the dual sinks in the main stateroom head.


The one I was aboard had a different layout and 
a glass of wine on the outside deck near sunset was
still a nice treat. I'm still waiting for my actual ride though.


 Care to charter instead?
How about one of these?


Alexandra is 164' mega yacht


Designed with light interior wood and furnishings.


Main bath subtle nautical styling.


Covered outdoor dining with glorious wood decks.
Alexandra is available via Hermes Yachts.


Leander G is 246 ft available from Charterworld.
Features a helicopter pad.
She can house up to 22 passengers and has a crew of 23.


Conduct business from the on board study


Just one of the guest suites


Have brunch on the back deck.

Prefer a sailing yacht? Meet Athena.


Athena is 295 ft. from Charter world.




Last up is Pegasus formerly called Princess Mariana.
Built in Denmark in 2003 she is 258 ft 
featuring six decks.

A helipad that turns into a golf driving range
when the 'copter is out.

Life is rough, not!



Master stateroom


Theatre


Deck 


Nightclub room


Dining


One of the guest cabins


The sea terrace is a drop down side deck



The garage floods with water to take out the tender.
It then converts into a pool filled with sea water when the 
tender is out if you desire.


More toys, six wave runners.


Main salon

I could reside quite happily. 
(The coffee table, couch and chairs aside)


How about you?

whoa, pull up the horses!!! you've stopped me in my path with all these glorious water riders!!! opened up a whole new world of dreamboating for me. my nicest ride was on a party catamaran off key west many years ago. otherwise, it's been little rental boats for riding the intracoastal waterway...mostly, just love sitting at Pop's sunset grill where we get a good view of lots of beautiful water steeds as the blast by....

wow..that's some eye candy you have given us to ponder on. I won't be greedy and just take a medium size one. :)

That's my idea of a beach house. With any of those you can pick a different beach each week.
