Shortlisted for an International Yacht and Aviation Award, the Cheoy Lee Alpha 87 Express Sportbridge (www.cheoylee.com) has sweeping exterior lines by Michael Peters Yacht Design and a flowing, open-plan interior by Luiz de Basto Designs. The yacht, which is priced at about $6 million, can reach a top speed of 30 knots when equipped with the standard engines. A full-beam master suite is accompanied by three guest suites, accommodating eight overnight passengers total. Outdoor spaces include an open-air bridge deck, a lounge with a retractable awning, and a four-person hot tub that doubles, when covered, as an aft sun pad.
