BEST of LUXURY

Luxury is in the eye of the beholder, but when it comes to the luxury lifestyle, we like to think that we know a thing or two.

Mangusta

Mangusta gives the world some of the largest luxury yachts, including the Mangusta 165. According to the brand, the 165 is the biggest open yacht in the world at 163 feet long. The massive size and performance abilities (like a top speed of 45 mph made possible by the three MTU 16V 4000 M93 engines, each giving 4556 HP) help this large vessel blow expectations out of the water. Construction is still under way for their new Mangusta 205, which will overtake the 165 as the world's largest open-style yacht. With massive exterior space and a secondary helm station, three 4,600-hp MTU engines will propel this 550-ton yacht to a top speed of 30 knots.

Clients can truly have it their way by consulting either with a specialized design team or Trinity's own in-house architects to make their dream yacht a reality. For example, the elite superyacht builders outfitted their $60 million Carpe Diem with three full-beam master suites. Their Destination Fox Harb'r Too features a split level owner's suite, dual private bathrooms, a Patrick Knowles-designed interior modeled on a European spa resort with hand-carved glass, stone work and loads of Honduran mahogany paneling.

Wally Yachts

Known for its cutting-edge designs, Wally Yachts definitely stands out among a sea of competition. Founded by Italian businessman Luca Bassani in 1994, the Monaco-based shipbuilder produces sleek motorboats, racer-cruisers, and sailing yachts in unmistakable packaging. With sophisticated, angular lines, many of the yachts look ready for a covert spy mission. Possibly the fastest motorboat in the world, the highly minimal and futuristic WallyPower 118 reaches a speed of 60 knots and showcases an exterior that changes in respect to the light and environment. As further evidence of their luxury status, Wally partnered with Hermes to create the Wally WHY, a highly exclusive "moving island" on the sea.

Perini Navi Group

Perini Navi is an Italian shipmaker specializing in both sailing and motor yachts. Many of their sailboats are of the ketch or clipper variety, including their 289-foot-long Maltese Falcon. Perini's lush list of accessories has attracted clients that include Robert Murdoch and Silvio Berlusconi.

Azimut Yachts

Founded in 1969 by enterprising college student Paolo Vitelli, Azimut began as a mere charter company, but it wasn't long before the company began designing its own boats. Their vessels were entirely handmade, and today they still employ many of their time-tested techniques. Sleek Italian design and refined details dominate the entire line, which ranges from 39- to 116-foot yachts. The company has several shipyards capable of producing hundreds of boats each year, and their newest offerings have movable furniture on the flybridge so you can customize your cruise. With a Rolls-Royce designed propulsion system and two jacuzzis, the triple-decked Azimuth Grande 140 is the firm's largest and offers unique interior options thanks to three proposed styles and 15 layouts.
