2003 52' Midnight Lace 52' Command Bridge

Sarasota, FL

Weather Girl Too

  I was a moment from another time and place, one that helps explain the spell that the new Midnight Lace casts over you. Yacht designer Tom Fexas created the Midnight Lace back in the '70s as a paean to those vintage commuter yacht magnates and their like to commute from their Long Island Sound homes to their offices. As a genre, the commuter yachts had a style and class of their own. Long, usually narrow and low, they were both speedy and luxurious. On fine mornings, the tycoons might sit in the runabout-like bow cockpit and consider the empires they would conquer that day. It kind of gave the term "looking forward a literal interpretation.
