Royal Huisman is better known for its sailing rigs, but from time to time, it delivers impressive motor yachts as well. This compact luxury ship was built for an American yachtsman who wanted a practical, usable vessel that wasn't too big to moor at most harbors and could sustain polar temperatures as well as travel long distances -- with energy-efficient savings. The estimated $40 million ship, launched in 2006, is designed for reduced noise and engine vibration. Its light aluminum alloy hull handles cold temperatures better than steel and reduces friction to offer better fuel mileage.
