It’s long been said that superyachts are more than the sum of their parts, and that’s particularly true in the case of the magnificent 54.85-metre motor yacht Al Waab.
Here’s a sample of the new luxury yachts that will make their global debut in France this September at the Cannes Yachting Festival.
Built to travel the most remote parts of the ocean while tackling rough seas with aplomb, explorer–or expedition–yachts typically exchange some level of luxury for greater fuel and storage capacity, and a superseaworthy, possibly ice-strengthened hull design. Rosetti’s new 38m Explorer delivers worldwide range without skimping on luxury.
Ferretti raises the bar— again —with its new 720. Bringing superyacht amenities into a more compact and practical footprint, this is one luxury cruiser we’re all going to see a lot more of.
If we were to assign animal-like qualities to yachts, then the 9X from Pershing is the big cat of the seas. Large, powerful, fast, stealthy, the 9X is one of those rare beasts you can’t help but admire in every possible way—the ultimate balance of muscle and grace.
Back this year as a single combined event at six separate locations, the new Discover Boating Miami International Boat Show attracted more than 100,000 visitors over its five-day run, presenting hundreds of new and brokerage vessels of up to 60 metres in length.
Launched in the summer of 2020 by the Italian shipyard Cantieri Navali Codecasa, and delivered in mid-2021, the four-deck Framura neatly blends a classic exterior design with a bright and forward-looking interior.
While it is fun to dream of living the life of a Bond villain aboard one’s custom-built megayacht, reality is a bit different for most of us. Our attainable dreams rest with smaller, serial-build production yachts, but that doesn’t mean giving up luxury, as evidenced by Sunseeker’s magnificent 90 Ocean.
A remarkable transformation has been occurring in the world of luxury yachts, much of it driven by the inventive mind of just one man.
