Baia's 100-foot Mirage , launched late in 2009, is more akin to being in a fast-moving atrium than on a traditional express yacht. The immense glass windshield pours back along both sides of the hull...
Sanlorenzo, one of Italy's oldest and most respected builders, was not exaggerating when it launched the SL 100 NEW in late 2009. Virtually everything is new about this performance yacht. Its sleek,...
