92-meter Aquarius (Project Touchdown) was launched by Feadship in September 2016. The superyacht features a resolutely contemporary exterior design with a number of archetypal Feadship elements, such as a conventional bow and raked superstructure shape. The profile comes from the boards of the Dutch company Sinot Exclusive Yacht Design, which was also responsible for the interior design together with the owner's design team in close cooperation with Feadship De Voogt Naval Architects.

2. Areti



Designed throughout by Winch Design, Lurssen's Areti features a large master suite with 8 additional guest suites. Amongst her amenities are an extensive spa area featuring a sauna, a hammam, a jacuzzi and a plunge pool located near to Areti's beach club.

3. Legend



Launched in Harlingen in March 2016, 77,4m yacht Legend features naval architecture and exterior styling by Diana Yacht Design, interiors by Thom Beerens and Jan Verkerk. Originally constructed in 1974 by the IHC Holland shipyard, the tranformation into an icebreaking passenger ship with a 1B-Swedish / Finish classification took place at Icon Yachts. Moreover, the vessel was lengthened in the stern by 3,6m, whilst her superstructure was completely redesigned and her mast rebuilt. One of the most alluring features is Legend's swim platform and a large swimming pool/Jacuzzi. In addition, she has a luxurious submarine for underwater exploration. Other amenities include a fitness room, movie theatre, medical suite, bar and BBQ areas. Performance wise the superyacht is powered by Smit-Bolnes engines, providing her with a top speed of 16 knots and a cruising speed of 13 knots.

Silver Fast is capable of crossing the Atlantic at approximately 22 knots cruising speed.

Dutch shipbuilder Damen has launched Game Changer,  70-metre yacht support vessel with helicopter hangar, in March 2017. The vessel features a fully certified helideck so owners can take larger helicopters on long range flights to their mother yachts and land safely in a wider weather window. Lowering the helicopter into the hangar protects it from the elements so it is refuelled and available for take-off without causing hassle, disruption and noise on the mother yacht.




Benetti has launched 67m superyacht Seasense, previously known as FB268, for an experienced owner who has chosen the Italian brand for the first time. The exterior lines of Seasense are by the Dutch designer Cor D. Rover, while the naval architecture was developed by the shipyard’s technical office. The contemporary styling of the interiors, on the other hand, is the result of collaboration between the Benetti’s architects team and the design studio AREA from Los Angeles, making its debut in the world of superyachts. The layout includes six suites that can accommodate up to 12 guests.




65.7m Infinite Shades is one of the largest yachts ever delivered by Amels. Her Andrew Winch designed interior allows for seven spacious cabins and upper deck spaces.

The world now has 53 yachts over 100 meters, more than double the amount in the fleet 10 years ago.

Delivered to Australian billionaire James Packer, the yacht became his latest flagship following Arctic P. Crafted in traditional Benetti style on the exterior, not much is known about the yacht’s interior. IJE and its new generation of Benettis did however put the yard into the competition for more 100-meter plus new builds as an increasing number of yards begins to compete for the segment.#4 Lana Length: 107m Yard: Benetti The first mega Benetti to be delivered, the 107-meter was built as hull FB 277 and was since named Lana.

Another example of Americans’ increasing presence, the 90-meter was built for Home Depot co-founder Arthur M. Blank. The capitalization in the yacht’s name being a clever play on the billionaire’s initials AMB.#9 Bold Length: 85m Yard: Silver Yachts One of the most unusual yachts on the water, its story begins with a bet to build fast, long yachts in Australia, which Guido Krass made when setting up Hanseatic Marine. Since renamed to Silver Yachts and now owned by a Chinese aluminium producer, the yard has built 5 yachts, the latest of which is Bold.

Chambers’ previous yachts were also named Excellence and proved to be successful charter vessels. His former flagship, Excellence V was sold in May asking €69.5 million. His prior 78-meter Abeking&Rasmussen was however sold to a Russian billionaire even prior to her delivery, now known as Eminence.#11 Dragon Length: 80m Yard: Columbus Whilst Dutch, German and Italian yards have been competing for the megayacht market, Palumbo Group, a Malta-based company has been quietly amassing a leadership position in refits and expanding into new builds acquiring ISA Yachts and now managing to deliver an 80-meter yacht through their Columbus brand. Dragon becomes the largest yacht built by the Maltese group. With all of the amenities one would expect of a yacht this size like a 7-meter swimming pool, beach club and vast staterooms, the yacht is a clear statement to the Maltese group’s expansion on the scene.
