The yacht arrived here after leaving Gibraltar a week ago and was spotted by local media. The yacht was delivered in 2017 and is owned by Russian billionaire Andrey Melnichenko. Stretching as long as one-and-a-half American football fields and featuring three masts taller than the Statue of Liberty, Melnichenko's boat always takes our breath away.German shipyard Nobiskrug was founded in 1905. Recognised today as one of the world’s foremost builders of spectacular fully custom superyachts, the shipyard is famous for the 92m Tatoosh, the award-winning 68m Sycara V, the 74m Mogambo, the 143m industry-changing Sailing Yacht A, and the environmentally innovative 80m Artefact.Credits: Manx Radio Instagram

Feadship Has Launched the 55m Somnium
The newest member of the Feadship fleet is emerging from the yard in Aalsmeer this week for final finishing and sea trials. The 55m Somnium, which is Latin for dream, is designed to take three generations of family members on a series of memorable world cruises.The first pure custom superyacht for an experienced Northern European owner, Somnium was designed by Studio De Voogt with a cosy interior design from FM Architettura. The owner is a keen fan of fast cars, so Somnium’s aluminium hull looks the part and was chosen to enhance efficiency and ensure the shallow drafts required for exploring at will. The Somnium has vast outside decks, which include an exclusive lounge area on the foredeck, a pool with adjustable floor and counterflow on the aft deck and a jacuzzi island on the sun deck. Interior highlights include a gym, a full-beam owners’ stateroom with a balcony and four roomy guest suites on the lower deck.Feadship was formed as a group in 1949 as a marketing partnership between six Dutch shipyards, de Vries Lentch, Van de Stadt, Witsen & Vis, Akerboom, De Vries Scheepsbouw and Van Lent Shipyard, and De Voogt Naval Architects. Feadship is well-known as one of Netherlands’ most elite yacht builders and delivers superyachts from 50–100+ meters in length.Credits: Feadship
Yacht Harbour Choice: Three Yachts for Charter
Lana 107mPrice: 1,800,000 euro per week Just delivered last year, Benetti’s Lana is one of the most luxurious superyachts in the world. The 107m superyacht is available for luxury yacht charter through Imperial and is ready to explore the seven seas from the Mediterranean to the Indian Ocean and beyond. She has been built to discover all corners of the globe to fulfil her guest’s desires. She can accommodate up to twelve guests in eight staterooms and up to thirty-one crew to ensure a relaxed luxury charter experience.Planet Nine73.2mPrice: 650,000 euro per week Planet Nine, the latest addition to the Burgess charter fleet, is an ice-classed explorer yacht. Built by Admiral in 2018, she is capable of accommodating twelve guests in nine cabins, including a separate owner’s deck and a main deck VIP suite. Her hull is ice classed and comes with a superb specification, including her MD 600 Explorer helicopter, hangar and helipad. The 73m Planet Nine can satisfy all possible needs – a lift serves all five decks, with the owner enjoying an entire deck that creates a private 3,000-square-feet apartment with a full suite, dressing rooms, saloon, study and terrace. A VIP suite occupies much of the bridge deck, creating another private area, and the suite has its own lounge, which can be converted into a cabin. A forward observation lounge affords panoramic 180-degree views and floor-to-ceiling glass is a feature across the yacht. In the unlikely event that you need a distraction from the outside world, there’s a cinema below the observation room.K2 49.9m Price: from 270,000 euro per week Launched in 2021, Columbus Yachts K2 is a great addition to the Fraser Charter fleet.Featuring striking lines and a vertical bow, K2 offers exceptional exterior deck spaces. Her spacious foredeck features a large hot tub and sun pads. She can take up to eleven guests in five ensuite luxury cabins, which makes K2 the perfect family-friendly yacht charter to experience. Additionally, K2 comes equipped with a large array of water toys, including a large selection of incredibly fun towables. She reaches a top speed of 21 knots and is also available in Western Mediterranean. Credits: Burgess; Imperial; Fraser
Yacht of the Day: Fantastic Rebuilt 42m Istros
Istros is a classical beauty: built in 1954 for the Pappadakis family and restored by Feadship in 2020 according to premium quality standards, she was also transformed into one of the most eco-friendly superyachts in the global fleet.She has quite a story behind her: one of her owners – a British sailor – gave her a multi-million-dollar refit, leading her to win the best restored vessel at the Monaco Yacht Club Prada Classic Yacht Show in 2001.Her current owner and captain Tristan Le Brun discovered her in the Maltese port of Valetta in July 2015. Her hull was damaged by corrosion. Le Brun wanted to save the classic exterior and rebuild everything else. Feadship built a new aluminum superstructure, making it a complete replica of the original. The original engines weighed 38 tonnes, 15% of the total displacement: replacing them with sustainable power sources meant adapting the superstructure and adding lead ballast. The new Istros is lighter than she was in 1954 and even more stable.The interior was made in Scandinavian style by Van Geest Design. More guest cabins were added and they have been enlarged. It also included a redesign of the main salon and galley.This wonderful yacht already made the journey from the Netherlands to Monaco last year and is ready for new adventures. Feadship was formed as a group in 1949 as a marketing partnership between six Dutch shipyards, de Vries Lentch, Van de Stadt, Witsen & Vis, Akerboom, De Vries Scheepsbouw and Van Lent Shipyard, and De Voogt Naval Architects. Feadship is well-known as one of Netherlands’ most elite yacht builders and delivers superyachts from 50–100+ meters in length.Credits: Feadship
