Florida-based Newcastle Shipyard made headlines (and our cover) with the launch of Harbour Island in 2011. This 180-foot (55-meter) yacht is sleeker than her expedition sisters, but she shares their long-range ability and impressive credentials. Designed by Murray & Associates Naval Architects with an interior by Claudette Bonville & Associates, this yacht has five decks—that equals 10,394 square feet of living spaces—and includes two spacious master suites. Four roomy lower-deck suites complete the guest accommodations. Built for charter, the interior is classic and interesting while still being neutral enough to appeal to a broad range of guests. Guests can also enjoy a wide range of water sports including diving and the two Caterpillar 2512B engines give her a top speed of 15 knots.
