Best of the Best 2011: Custom Megayachts: Sycara V

  • Nobiskrug Sycara V

    With its multiple bars and lounging areas—and a crew of at least 16 to staff them—the Nobiskrug-built Sycara V (+49.4331.207.350, www.nobiskrug.com; available for charter through Edmiston & Company, 212.792.5370, www.edmistoncompany.com) is an ideal yacht for entertaining. The 223-foot vessel’s main-deck salon, which includes a formal dining room with a bar, can be opened to the aft deck via circular doors. A massive sundeck includes an eight-person spa, a barbecue area, a dining table for as many as 12 guests, a glassed-in gym, and a massage room that doubles as a beauty salon. At the stern, the yacht’s beach club features a lounging area with a bar, as well as a bathing platform for easy access to the water. Sycara V’s five lower-deck staterooms and bridge-deck master suite accommodate as many as 12 guests, who have access to a pair of tenders and a range of personal watercraft. The yacht has a range of 5,000 nautical miles, making transatlantic crossings possible—and ensuring the party never stops.
