"Small" Yacht, Big Features

In a size range that is increasingly dominated by fully production yachts, it's nice to find a fully custom yacht like LeClercq (pronounced "le-clair") Marine's 82, being presented in conjunction with OceanStyle at the Yacht & Brokerage Show in Miami.

When I toured her, I was impressed with her well-appointed interior, particularly the galley. As you can see here, it's a country kitchen setup, but it's far better laid out than similar setups on larger yachts. There's not only a great expanse of counterspace, but that same counterspace doubles as a convivial breakfast bar. It enhances the yacht's overall family-friendly feel so well that I'd be hard-pressed to leave the room if I were the owners.
