Here is a list of yachts that can’t be missed. 

Sunseeker Ocean 182

Sunseeker introduces a bold deck layout on the Ocean 182, reshaping yacht design norms. The 27m vessel relocates the helm station to the enclosed flybridge, creating a capacious deck saloon comparable to super yachts. Featuring a full-beam midships master cabin and en-suite bathrooms for the VIP and two additional cabins, it epitomizes luxury. With twin 2,000 hp engines, the Ocean 182 achieves a comfortable top speed of 27 knots. Cruising at 12 knots extends its range to 1,800 nautical miles, making it not just a yacht but a potential primary residence, redefining the concept of onboard living.

Fairline Squadron 58

Fairline introduces Squadron 58. Featuring innovative "beach club" balconies on both sides, effortlessly extending the deck and offering direct sea access. The interior exudes a calm ambiance with understated design, ensuring a secure onboard environment. The modular cockpit furniture allows personalized arrangements, and expansive windows provide nearly 360-degree visibility, creating a Mediterranean atmosphere. In addition to Squadron 58, Fairline presents the Targa 40 at Düsseldorf.

Absolute 52 Fly

The Absolute 52 Fly spans a length of 16.76 meters, embodying the shipyard's commitment to innovation and trailblazing in naval design. Termed the "Absolute Direction," this philosophy is evident in the vessel's three expansive decks, providing a sense of comfort and space reminiscent of larger yachts. The capacious design is exemplified by the master cabin in the bow, ensuring optimal privacy. The midships VIP guest cabin rivals a second master suite in its spaciousness. Additional guest and crew cabins offer sanctuaries from the generously proportioned open decks, transforming the boat into a sea-view residence for 14 individuals. Propelled by 2 Volvo-Penta engines (D8-IPS800), the crew has the flexibility to choose the most picturesque bay at any given moment.

Steeler 50 TA

The Steeler 50 TA, where "TA" signifies "Trans Atlantic," is a Dutch motor yacht crafted from steel and aluminum. Functioning as a semi-glider, it boasts a transatlantic range suitable for both river and open-sea journeys. This achievement is facilitated by a 5,000-liter tank capacity and the integration of a Wingit kite system, harnessing wind energy to save fuel and propelling the vessel at initial speeds without diesel consumption. The 16.50 m long and 4.93 m wide yacht guarantees a secure ocean crossing, featuring fully redundant technical systems, including radar, night vision equipment, dual radio systems, and satellite telephone. The expansive 2.40 x 3.20 meter XXL sliding glass roof offers a constant view of the starry sky.


Wallypower50 boasts an extensive options list, enabling it to adapt to the diverse needs of its owners. Its clean lines and stem design echo the iconic style of larger wallypowers, while the option for the wraparound fender from the wallytenders adds another layer of versatility. The deck is optimized with two separate sunbeds, creating an additional 6 square meters of aft deck space when the wings are opened. Powered by two Volvo Penta IPS650s, the wallypower50 reaches speeds beyond 36 knots, with a 30-knot cruise and easy joystick handling. 

Invictus TT420S

A year after introducing the TT420, Invictus Yachts returns to boot with the TT420S, a 1,000 hp outboard version. Powered by three Yamaha 350s, it sacrifices some of the stern's swim platform for the trio of engines but gains an expansive storage lazarette, formerly occupied by Volvo inboards. This alteration provides ample space for a seven-foot RIB tender and various water toys. Retaining the distinctive wave-shaped hardtop and designed by Christian Grande, the TT420S offers a high-performance and stylish day cruiser experience.

Saxdor 400 GTC

The eagerly awaited Saxdor 400 GTC, the second flagship model, brings heightened versatility to the power open category. The distinctive feature of the GTC is its main deck – extending to the full beam, enclosed with expansive insulated glazing for ample light and warmth, shielding from wind and rain. The generous lateral terraces, along with modular furniture, create abundant outdoor space, and wings enhance guest mobility for a private island-like experience. The glass door and a 360-degree transparent cabin make the Saxdor 400 GTC the most adaptable yacht in its class, while a new glass transom and lower deck further amplify the home-at-sea ambiance, offering access to a spacious forward double cabin, amidships double cabin, and an optional third berth for kids.

Omikron OT-60

The innovative OT-60 from Greek shipbuilder Omikron, unveiled at boot, challenges the conventional trawler-style cruising with a sailboat-inspired design by Milan-based Lorenzo Argento. With the focus on efficient, quiet, and economical island-hopping cruising, the yacht is propelled by twin 150 hp Yanmar diesels (with 250 hp options), it achieves over 1,000 nautical miles at 9.2 mph on a single tank. The spacious below-deck accommodation has the 6 meter beam.

Frauscher x Porsche eFantom

In collaboration, Frauscher and Porsche present the eFantom, an elegant and innovative boat at the pinnacle of sophistication. Marrying the aesthetic prowess of both brands, this avant-garde vessel is technologically groundbreaking. Powered by the electric motor from the upcoming Porsche Macan, the eFantom reaches an impressive 45 knots in Sport Plus mode. Scheduled for road debut in 2024, the Macan's power unit is already propelling the eFantom, accompanied by a high-end sound system effortlessly drowning out any operational noise.
