Top 6 Motor Yachts Under 100 Feet [New + Brokerage]

November 1, 2020



The best motor yachts you can buy between 60 and 100 feet in the United States.

Motor yachts are powered by single or twin engines — some equipped with two to four pod drives providing added maneuverability and joystick steering in close quarters. They can make voyages across oceans, zip through large rivers, or navigate the Great Lakes. Motor yachts are perfect for saltwater fishing, overnight boating, and day cruising and can be anywhere from 40 to 100 feet long.

Popular motor yacht brands include Beneteau, Sunseeker, Horizon, Azimut, Benetti, Sea Ray, and Johnson. Motor yachts are built with outstanding innovation to encompass superyacht qualities without the extensive size. We’re featuring the top 6 motor yachts under 100 feet, currently for sale with Denison Yacht Sales.


1. 87’ Johnson 2004

This beautiful 87′ Johnson, named Illusion is updated after a refit in 2018/2019. She boasts a generous beam of almost 24 feet — which is wide for vessels of this length — but it allows comfortable walkways around the entire exterior from stern to bow. Her spacious interior includes a large salon, four staterooms, a luxury dining area, alfresco dining aft with enclosed sunshades, and a large galley. A massive sun pad on the bow lets everyone enjoy ample sun while sipping cocktails. This stunning 87’ Johnson has a major price reduction and will be near the 2020 Fort Lauderdale Boat Show.

Best feature: Great value for her size.


2. 67’ Van der Valk

The Van der Valk shipyard designed an addition to its BeachClub series — Alvaro, a 67-foot motor yacht that uses a Volvo IPS 1050 drive system. The placement of the motors, combined with a large beam and liberal use of glass, produces a vast interior volume to improve the social areas. The 67’ Van der Valk has a roomy bow for dining, plus an (optional) hot tub that’s uncommon for a motor yacht of this size. The large windows along the hull and glass aft doors blanket the salon and galley with natural light. Van der Valk designers can custom build your dream boat so that you can have a top motor yacht with superyacht qualities.

Best feature: Extensive smart swim platform and sun lounge area to optimize al fresco lifestyle.


3. 85’ Azimut 2007

Blue is a stellar example of a late model Azimut 85 that’s for sale with Denison Yachting. In 2018, Blue was in the yard for a refit, which included an update to interior furnishings, a full paint job, and the addition of a hydraulic teak swim platform. Her size, layout, toys, and four ensuite staterooms give her the luxurious qualities of a superyacht under 100 feet. Blue is currently in Miami, Florida.

Best feature: Flybridge jacuzzi for the ultimate yachting experience.


4. 60’ Beneteau Monte Carlo 6

The new Monte Carlo 6 is a stunning and sporty 60-foot flybridge yacht with a bridge the size of most 70 footers. This new motor yacht is powered by two Cummins 600 QSC 8.3 diesel engines driving Zeus pods, and can reache a top speed of 28 knots. She has all the torque needed for dynamic acceleration and sustained performance so you can zip to your next coastal or island destinations. The styling on the MC 6 combines the usual Beneteau openness with a superyacht quality fit and finish. Her spacious three staterooms have ensuite heads. An open salon offers perfect comfort and entertainment space.

Best feature: Classic lines starting from her wave-piercing bow leading to her nearly vertical stern.


5. 62’ Horizon 2006

The spaciousness and construction of the Horizon E62 rival that of much larger motor yachts. The sleek exterior profile and beautifully designed interior give this world-class motor yacht refinements of a superyacht. This 62’ Horizon, named Lady G, has a two stateroom, two head layout with a large aft lazerette (laundry/tool room). An innovative hull design gives it exceptional handling and sea-keeping ability. Her interior is highlighted by a country kitchen that’s a chef’s dream. This used motor yacht had a full 1,000-hour service ahead of schedule to include the transmissions and coolers. She’s an impressive used motor yacht under 100 feet.

Best feature: Feeling of spaciousness throughout the vessel.


6. 96′ Nordlund 1995

Patience was custom built with great consideration for ease of operation with a smaller crew. She’s built completely from fiberglass construction and hosts 4 staterooms plus crew. Patience has undergone refits in 2005 and 2019 to upgrade her to be a top motor yacht under 100 feet. She has a new aft deck extension, new interior and exterior upholstery, new teak, and new Caterpillar C-30 1550 HP engines with new generators. She’s able to cruise comfortably at 20 knots and boasts a great hull design making her a fantastic offshore boat. Patience is making an appearance at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show 2020 and is ready for her next adventure with you.

Best feature: A brand new interior refit in 2019 that boasts a spacious and updated galley that rivals a home kitchen.
