    Feadship launched the second yacht in its new F45 semicustom series in October. The 146'6" Harle features an Art Deco-inspired interior design that the shipyard, Royal Van Lent, refers to as the Miami decor package. (The F45 series offers owners the choice of four design styles: Monaco, Miami, Milano, and Nautical.) Harle, like the rest of the yachts in the series, has all four guest staterooms as well as the owner's suite on the main deck, and the owner's stateroom features a skylight more than ten feet overhead.

    If you're a fan of any sport that involves the water, and particularly if you're a fan of the Olympics, be sure to tune into the sailing competition this summer when the Games are held in Beijing. You'll see John Dane, CEO of Trinity Yachts, racing a Star Class boat. Various media have already picked up the story, though focusing on the fact that Dane will likely be the oldest athlete participating in the Games, at age 58. No word on whether any of Trinity's clients have offered him a week's stay onboard their yachts if he nabs the gold medal, though.
