If leisurely cruising to far away destinations for days at a time with all of the comforts of home sounds enjoyable, then owning a motor yacht may be your vessel of choice. While there are many different styles and brands of motor yachts, these boats are typically found over the 40-foot threshold with some superyachts pushing over 120-feet. Whether a flybridge style or enclosed bridge, motor yachts come in a variety of layouts that include spacious salons, full galleys, multiple cabins with en suite heads, and lots of storage space for extended trips. Many of the larger motor yachts tend to have a captain and crew to run the boat safely and have their own sleeping and eating quarters below deck for the owner's privacy.
The used motor yacht market has grown substantially in the last several years as the economy has improved and builders have increased production of more units. International motor yacht brands like Azimut, Ferretti, Sunseeker, Princess, Sea Ray, and others have expanded their model ranges to accommodate the owner/operator or beginning yacht owner in the 40-50 foot range while also growing the size and capabilities of their larger yachts in the 80-foot plus range. With the increasing popularity of the motor yacht buyer, even American sportfish builders like Viking Yachts and Hatteras Yachts are producing cruising motor yachts in the 70 to 100 foot range.

While cruising in a motor yacht is typically done in the 8-12 knot range for fuel efficiency reasons, today's yacht owner wants the ability to get to their destinations more quickly. By coming standard with twin diesel engines that can exceed 1,500HP each, a luxury motor yacht can easily cruise at 15-20 knots and achieve even higher top speeds. The changes in design and improved construction techniques have also led to new, innovative uses of spaces on board. Larger windows are now found on most yachts in the salons, big berths in the staterooms offer a more comfortable overnight experience, and many layouts offer en suite heads in all the cabins.
