Sailing across the world to Italy, we venture into the 171ft Tamsen, A Perini Navi ketch, whose crew comprises family members and friends with a 30-year sailing pedigree. Stepping aboard the Palmer Johnson sportyacht Dragon, one is cosseted by feeling of zen, wrapped in the utmost luxury. All of the yachts in this year's compilation contribute something unique to the owners and guests who cruise them. As the stars behind the scenes, the designers and naval architects are at the core of the industry, and plans for future builds – which can be seen in the Builder's and Designer's sections – prove that their imaginations have no limits. Judging by the sheer volume of new yachts entering the scene, it is no surprise that this year's listing of the world's Top 100 largest megayachts has grown exponentially. A true testament to the indsutry's growth in the last two years, the smallest yacht on this year's list is now at 213 feet and 7 inches.

For a more action-oriented adventure, cruise over to the Dalmatian coast in Croatia and experience the Med-influenced ambiance of this Adriatic-lined country. Celebrating an industry that is experiencing boundless growth, THE MEGAYACHTS USA is filled with glossy pages showcasing these fantastic fruits of labor.
