TYPES OF LARGE YACHTS FOR SALE
Tri deck yachts feature three levels or more of deck space and are the configuration for the most popular large yacht, megayacht or superyacht (See our page on Trideck yacht builders)! They almost always feature a main deck (on-deck) master stateroom and a sky lounge for plenty of entertaining and guest space. These yachts are the most popular yachts for large families and chartering because of their huge volume. Tri deck yachts start at around 80’ (24m) and go up from there to the largest mega-yachts in the world! Smaller tri deck yachts (80’-130’) are often designed to go fast (25 knots or so). As they grow larger (and heavier), trideck yachts gain the ability to cross oceans and thus at slower speeds for better range and fuel economy.

Raised pilothouse yachts are typically designed with two deck levels – a main deck level with a large salon and dining area (with a large aft deck for entertaining) with a galley plus a ‘country kitchen’ forward. Owner and guest staterooms are found on a lower level with 3-4 staterooms. The fly bridge is typically very spacious and open – often with a hardtop. A raised pilothouse is usually found on the same level as the fly bridge area, whereas a pilothouse yacht features an enclosed steering station on the main deck level. Raised pilothouse yachts (such as the Westport 112′) and pilothouse yachts (also known as a flush deck pilothouse yacht) are very popular in the US and Mediterranean areas due to their versatility and popular layout – which has many varieties. These yachts often can achieve speeds of 25 knots plus and are usually not found over 125’ (38m).
This category of large yachts focus on style, performance and enjoying fast day-trips. Large express yachts are typically very sleek and stylish; featuring a main deck devoted to both sun-worshipping and a casual combined salon area and helm. Owner/guest accommodations are found below consisting of 1-4 staterooms plus a crew area. Large express yachts are very popular on the US east coast and in the Mediterranean area. These yachts can be found up to 150’ (45m) with speeds up to 50 knots.
Large sailing yachts combine the luxury of fine living with the excitement and unlimited range enjoyed by the wind. Modern technology has allowed for exciting performance and easy operation (by virtue of hydraulic winches and roller furling) with tremendous sail areas. Many large sailing yachts offer a deck salon forward of twin steering stations, along with an additional salon and dining area below with luxurious living accommodations plus crew quarters. Most large sailing yachts are limited to the draft of where they can travel, although some have keels (or daggerboards) which can be raised for shallow draft cruising. Most large sailing yachts are designed as a sloop (or cutter), ketch or schooner rigs.
Expedition yachts are a category of large yachts which refer to large long range yachts with a commercial styled ‘flair’ or actually commercial vessels which have been converted into yachts. Some expedition yachts carry sport fishing boats for exciting fishing in remote areas. In either case, expedition yachts are often designed to travel our wonderful world in search of adventure and places which are not easily cruised.
Large sport fishing yachts and yachtfishers are a small category of large yachts for avid fishing enthusiasts. Most large sportfishers feature an enclosed fly bridge which doubles as a sky lounge. Features include large diesel engines for speeds in excess of 20 knots and comfort which allows for 4 staterooms plus a crew area. Yacht fishers combine the amenities and features found on large motor yachts with a large cockpit area for fishing and water sports. Large sport fishing yachts and yacht fishers are typically found in the US east and west coasts.
