So you finally broke down and bought that yacht you’ve always wanted, but you have no place to park it. What’s an aspiring boat captain to do?

Well, for starters, you could steer toward the warm waters of Fort Lauderdale, FL, and pick up a $40 million, fully furnished mansion to pair with your new yacht.

Right off the Atlantic Ocean, this week’s most expensive new listing comes with a whopping 625 feet of waterfront footage. It might even be large enough to handle Paul Allen‘s infamous Octopus—which measures in at 414 feet.

If yacht-friendly real estate isn’t a priority, there are plenty of other options among this week’s most expensive new listings. You could opt for a five-level Greenwich Village townhouse, a modern home above Los Angeles, a gated mansion in the O.C., or a custom-built home in the Bay Area.

Anchors away as we count them down …

1. 615 Lido Dr, Fort Lauderdale, FL

Price: $40,000,000 ($2,511 per square foot)
The luxe factor: Designed by architect Robert A.M. Stern, this luxury waterfront property will be the city’s largest real estate transaction if it sells for the current list price. Bonus for buyers: There’s no need to bring your moving truck. Listing agent Dennis Stevick told us the yacht-ready mansion is brand new and comes fully furnished—including 20 televisions. Stevick is prepped to break his record-setting mark for Fort Lauderdale—last year’s $27.5 million sale of the mansion of Florida’s former foreclosure king.

Fort Lauderdale, FL


2. 19 W 12th St, New York, NY

Price: $34,950,000 ($5,308 per square foot)
The luxe factor: Once the home of legendary actress Meryl Streep, this Greenwich Village townhouse “has been totally renovated, with no detail overlooked.” Offering five levels of living space and built in 1910, it’s touted as having the “perfect location.”

New York City, NY


3. 1654 Blue Jay Way, Los Angeles, CA

Price: $25,000,000 ($2,857 per square foot)
The luxe factor: Located in L.A.’s “bird streets,” this modern gem offers stunning views of the city below. And if old listing pictures are to be believed, you can also savor a view of people swimming in the pool from a porthole window in the home’s lounge.

Los Angeles, CA


4. 165 Emerald Bay, Laguna Beach, CA

Price: $24,500,000 ($3,743 per square foot)
The luxe factor: Recently completed and fresh on the market, this mansion in the gated Emerald Bay complex is “designed for ultimate entertaining.” Built with a seamless indoor-outdoor flow, the five-bedroom home offers bonkers views of the Pacific Ocean below.

Laguna Beach, CA


5. 700 Kings Mountain Rd, Woodside, CA

Price: $23,988,000 ($1,713 per square foot)
The luxe factor: Listing agent Albert Garibaldi told us he and co-listing agent Natasha Green have kicked off an international marketing blitz to lure in potential buyers for this Bay Area home. Set on 3 acres of land, this French Country-style estate comes with a 13,000-bottle wine cellar. Garibaldi estimated an acre of land in Woodside would cost around $5 million, making this custom-built home a relative bargain.
