As of this writing, 37 yachts will make their international show debut at the Monaco Yacht Show. Equally notable, five of them exceed 230 feet (70 meters). The event, from September 22 to 25, pledges prominent changes, too. In fact, the new Yacht Design & Innovation Hub exhibition area allows leading designers to give live presentations. To help you organize your must-visit list, here are a dozen of the megayachts premiering at the Monaco Yacht Show.
Amels 242 Synthesis. A previous Amels Limited Editions customer stepped up to commission the fourth Amels 242. Synthesis is quite voluminous, at 1,790 gross tons, with accommodations for the owner’s party of 12. Further noteworthy, Synthesis is the 40th Limited Editions megayacht delivered since 2005.
Baglietto Club M. First-time custom-yacht buyers cruise aboard Club M. They collaborated closely with Achille Salvagni for the serene interior design, featuring unusual materials like parchment. They further collaborated closely with Baglietto to ensure incredibly low sound and vibration levels.
Columbus Yachts K2 (above). Rich woods like ziricote and tanganyika frisè, plus accents in lacquer and steel make for a striking interior ambience aboard this 164-footer (49.9 meters). She belongs to a three-time Palumbo Superyachts customer. “The concept of this yacht mirrors the personality, style, and approach to life of its owner,” explains Luca Dini, K2’s interior designer.
Feadship Viva. So far, Viva is the largest of the new megayachts premiering at the Monaco Yacht Show, at 308 feet (94 meters). The owner, a repeat shipyard client, was keen to incorporate diesel-electric propulsion. He also wanted a beach-house-like interior ambience.
ISA Yachts Resilience. The first ISA Classic 65, Resilience launched just last month. One of her lounges converts to a seventh stateroom. An outdoor movie area, a massage room, and two pools are onboard, too.
Lürssen Project 13800. Incorporating what the shipyard says is “a fearless use of colors and textures as well as museum-quality interior furniture,” this new Lürssen belongs to owners who were inspired by Carinthia VI, one of its deliveries from 1973. LOA: 182 feet (55.5 meters).
Majesty 175 Serenity. Firstly, this is the world’s largest all-composite production yacht. Secondly, the Majesty 175 is the largest yacht in Gulf Craft’s history. (Gulf Craft owns the Majesty brand.) One exceptional area onboard is the sky lounge, which converts to a nearly entirely open lounge (above). Overall, the interior is by Cristiano Gatto Design.
Mangusta Oceano 50. This is the 10th metal-hulled megayacht in Mangusta’s history. The 164-footer (50-meter) has the hallmarks of Mangustas, including a strong inside-outside connection. She also has a 732-square-foot (68-square-meter) beach club, plus a tender-bay-turned-pool in her bow.
Nobiskrug Artefact. The members of a charter-loving family all contributed ideas to Artefact, their first custom yacht. Cruising nearly nonstop since delivery last year, the superyacht incorporates 70 tons of glass, throughout the interior and as part of her profile. They’re some of the largest and most striking panes of glass you’ll see on a private vessel.
Rossinavi Polaris. The owners of Polaris intend to cruise all over the world. Specifically, their 230-foot (70.2-meter) yacht needed to cruise safely in the Arctic and Antarctic, even the Baltic Sea in wintertime. Interestingly, the yacht’s profile is sleek. This is atypical of an authentic explorer, especially these days.
Sanlorenzo 62 Steel Cloud 9. Hull number one in the 62 Steel series has six guest staterooms on the main deck. Meanwhile, the master suite sits aft on the upper deck, with a skylight and aft-facing bedroom. Cloud 9 belongs to an experienced cruising family whose previous yacht was smaller than this 202-footer (61.5-meter).
Turquoise Yachts Blue II. None of the other megayachts premiering at the Monaco Yacht Show look like Blue II. It’s because she looks a lot like a classic steam ship. Yet, she took her maiden voyage last year in August. On her owner’s bucket list: the Northwest Passage. LOA: 184 feet (55.99 meters).
