15 November 2023 • Written by Risa Merl

Set your calendars - iconic collector’s edition for yachting enthusiasts The Superyachts book launches December. Editor Risa Merl gives a heads-up about what to look forward to this year.

For the better part of four decades, The Superyachts book has granted readers unparalleled access to the most beautiful and interesting yachts in the world, and this year’s edition is no exception.

Published annually by Boat International Media, The Superyachts showcases 20 of the most spectacular yachts launched in the past year and provides an industry-leading update on the register list of the 200 largest yachts in the world. Thought-provoking editorial examining topical issues facing the yachting industry today complete the mix. Celebrating its 37th year in publication, the latest The Superyachts will make its debut in December 2023.

The Superyachts is the indispensable superyacht industry guide providing a deep dive into the most notable yachts of the year, with their stories expertly told by our talented team of writers,” said BOAT International Editor-in-Chief Stewart Campbell.

20 yachts are chosen for this year’s volume 37 of The Superyachts, and they are presented in exquisite detail with ample space devoted to stunning photography over nearly 500 beautifully laid out pages. The book features many never-before-seen pictures - and more technical details than you would find in the magazine coverage.

Readers will also get the first look at some yachts, including the new 81-metre Sea Eagle sailing yacht from Royal Huisman.

Yachts profiled in The Superyachts include the open-plan 65-metre Rossinavi Alchemy, the incredible transformation of the 105-metre H at Oceanco, and the highly-researched 74-metre Admiral yacht Kenshō.

There are also looks at the loving refits sailing yachts Almyra II and the schooner Athos, as well as the classic motor yacht Marala.

Rounding out the lineup of yachts depicted in this year’s edition is: Acala, Arrow, Calex, Come Together, Enterprise, Jewels, Leona, Lusine, N1, Project X, Rio, Somnium and SpaceCat. Each unique and innovative in its own way.

In addition to the yacht’s themselves, The Superyachts volume 37 is the first time that readers can see the latest list of the Top 200 largest yachts (by LOA) in the world. This year’s register of largest yachts is updated with more than a dozen new entries, knocking previous contenders off the list.

And that’s not all - discover the yachts that won the 2023 BOAT International Design & Innovation Awards, alongside winners of the World Superyacht Awards. The book also includes an alphabetical listing of all of the yachts profiled in each of the previous editions since the very first volume.

Meanwhile, the essay this year focuses on the impact of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in yacht design, engineering, maintenance and the on-board experience for owners and guests. “Yachting is a very human story that the machines are trying to infiltrate – see Risa Merl’s essay on AI’s impact on superyacht design and engineering to see how successful they’ve been so far,” said Campbell.
