Christensen 145 Primadonna

The custom-built, 145-foot super sportfisherman Primadonna left Christensen's Vancouver, Washington, shipyard last summer.

Her owner intends to cruise her extensively, stopping only for fishing and entertaining. That's why you'll find, among other fishing amenities, two in-deck electric deep freezers, a fighting chair and a bait tank built as much for display as function.

Inside, a theme loosely interpreted as art-deco-goes-safari prevails, with high-gloss madroño burls, opulent etched glass on tabletops and walls, and plenty of marble.

Speaking of marble, a backlit marble dance floor in the sky lounge should be enticing when the fish aren't biting. -C.F.
