The 78-meter explorer Cloudbreak was listed among the largest superyachts on display at Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, where she was spotted in all her glory on November 4.
Built by Abeking & Rasmussen in 2016, she owes her name to a big wave in Fiji that very few surfers dare defy. For a good reason, she is often described as a high-tech floating chalet, able to accommodate 12 guests in 6 cabins within her interior space, designed by Christian Liaigre. Her amenities, conceived to suit the lifestyle of a young and adventurous owner, include playing, airfield, comfort and party zones, as well as a research and sports center. Cloudbreak is a substantial go-anywhere vessel with a steel hull and aluminum superstructure.

Delivered in 2016, she is another collaboration between the Dutch yard and the London-based studio Eidsgaard Design, responsible for her interior styling. The focal point of her full-height atrium is the large free-standing staircase flanked by a glass wall. Vanish also boasts 2 touch-and-go helipads, an outdoor cinema and an array of water toys. As for the performance, she can reach a maximum speed of 17.5 knots and cruise at 12 knots.
3. Pacific - @ronraffety
Also known as Project Josi, Pacific is a custom built superyacht of 85.20 meters in length, delivered by Lurssen in 2010. Her interior was designed by the London-based studio Bannenberg & Rowell Design, while she features exterior styling by Argentinean architect German Frers. The imposing yacht belongs to Russian art collector and entrepreneur Leonid Mikhelson, who purchased her for $150 million.
Being quite active in oceans, she reportedly has been seen in places like the South of France, Italy, Australia, Indonesia, Costa Rica, Hawaii and Florida. Fort Lauderdale was the boat’s most recent port call, where she was snapped on November 8.

The 162-meter Eclipse was spotted last week in Gibraltar.
Built by Blohm+Voss – now part of Lurssen Group – for Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich in 2010, as the largest yacht in the world, she yielded her title in 2013 to the 180-meter Azzam. However, now she is still considered the second largest private yacht. Refitted in 2015, Eclipse boasts a 56-meter private owner's deck, a 16-meter swimming pool that can transform into open deck and can carry up to three helicopters at a time.
Before Gibraltar, Eclipse didn’t go unnoticed while cruising on the French Riviera, Fort Lauderdale, St Martin and in May this year also in Gibraltar.
5. Kismet - @julien_hubert
Built by the German yard for Shahid Khan, Kismet features a modern exterior design of Espen Oeino and interior styling by Reymond Langton Design, which reflects inspiration in Art Deco, Art Nouveau and Japanese art.
The yacht accommodates 12 guests in 6 staterooms, with master suite boasting a private deck with a helipad. She has a tricky layout, featuring a number of conversation points, such as a Jacuzzi overlooking the sea on the upper deck, or a winding starecase, providing access to a dedicated observation deck. The skylounge conveys a more casual atmosphere due to its beach house style decor.
