Delta 124 
This completely custom, one-of-kind, 124-foot yacht is an excellent example of the Delta Marine shipyard's construction technology, craftsmanship and proven naval architecture. Powered by twin 1,450-hp Detroit Diesel 16V92T engines that give it a top speed of 17 knots and a cruising speed of 15 knots, it is a sea-kindly, go-anywhere vessel. Its range at an economical 10-knot speed is 2,300 nautical miles, consuming just 40 gallons per hour. The Pavlik Design Group created the 124-foot Delta's airy interior decor, which has a relaxed, beach house ambiance, filled with warm, light woods and fine stonework. Large windows bring in light and views of the surrounding sea. There are spacious accommodations for eight guests in four staterooms on board. The master suite is located on the lower deck, amidships; the most comfortable spot on the yacht for sleeping in all sea conditions. It features a king berth and en-suite marble his-and-hers heads with a Jacuzzi tub and shower. There are two mirror-image queen staterooms with en-suite marble heads lie aft. A VIP stateroom with en-suite marble head is located forward on the main deck. The Delta also offers roomy accommodations for six crew. The yacht's tri-deck design, which encompasses a bridge deck with sky lounge topped by a sun deck area, large main and lower decks, offers multiple exterior spaces for entertaining, sunbathing, and enjoying a long soak in the six-person bridge-deck Jacuzzi. Launched by Delta in 1998, this classic motoryacht has been meticulously maintained by a professional crew. Its soft goods, entertainment systems and equipment have been updated by continuous refits and refurbishments over the past seven years.

Hatteras 
One of the largest yachts to launch from the famous North Carolina shipyard of Hatteras, is this 130-foot, semi-displacement Hatteras Tri-Deck Motor Yacht. Built in 1995 to ABS standards, this spacious SuperYacht features a classic interior by noted designer Dee Robinson. The yachts interior configuration has been designed to comfortably accommodate up to 10 guests overnight in five cabins, comprising a master suite, two double cabins and two twin cabins, while also capable of carrying up to seven crew onboard in four cabins to ensure a relaxed luxury yacht experience. Powered by two Detroit Diesel (16V149) 2,446hp engines and set in motion by twin screw propellers, Motor yacht Charisma is capable of a top speed of 24 knots, and comfortably cruises at 18-plus knots.

Destiny 98 
This 98-foot semi-displacement motoryacht is "best in class" when it comes to interior and exterior volume. Styled by well-known SuperYacht designer Evan Marshall, the vessel's elegant interior is characterized by comfortable, overstuffed furniture, fine stonework and high-gloss woods. Eight guests are accommodated in four luxurious suites, including a main-deck master and lower-deck VIP – both with king berths – plus queen and twin staterooms. A 2012 refit updated the soft goods throughout the yacht. Equipped with twin 16V2000 MTU diesel engines, the vessel offers a top speed of 23 knots and a cruising speed of 21 knots. This Destiny 98 had only one owner, who spared no expense to maintain the vessel in top condition.
