The divisive golden superyacht
With unusual exteriors, original shapes and groundbreaking design, these divisive yachts have challenged our perceptions of what superyachts should look like. Whether you love them or hate them, one thing is for sure — the yachts on this list will turn heads wherever they go.
The industry is no stranger to radical superyacht hull colours, but its more than just her metallic gold finish that makes Khalilah one of our most divisive yachts. This 2014 launch for American yard Palmer Johnson features an angular carbon fibre superstructure by Nuvolari Lenard and side deflectors that make her look more like a trimaran than a traditional monohull. Love her or hate her, the staggering performance of this 49 metre is undeniable. As yard owner Timur Mohamed puts it: "30 knots on a displacement hull simply does not happen." Unless that yacht is called Khalilah.
