    On Board: Charter Yacht Lazy Z

    On Board: Charter Yacht Liberty

    Liberty is a 163-foot ISA motoryacht that launched in 2011 and earned a nomination in the 2012 World Superyacht Awards. She has one of the most eclectic interiors that I’ve ever seen aboard a megayacht, one that manages to exude style without seeming formal or ostentatious.
