A ping pong table with balls that fly through the air unaffected by wind; the rise of a precious stone that symbolises revolution; a glass globe constructed to mirror Ravel’s orchestral piece, Bolero. No, not things of fiction, but unique objects that feature in our annual and carefully curated Lux List – a yearly round-up of the best of the best to reflect the things that we know our readers spend a lot of their time, effort and money seeking out and treasuring. The other strikingly unique element of many superyachts is their art collections – many owners keep their best works for their voyages at sea, in fact. In this issue we help you navigate Art Basel Miami Beach, by land and by sea. Claire Wrathall seeks out the best emerging artists to invest in, plus the new dealer duo to help you find them. And while we know it’s all about the art, we also know that a good social scene doesn’t go amiss – so we have located the best places to people watch while drinking and eating in style. Happy Christmas!

Sometimes you walk around a superyacht and the words won’t come. You’re so struck by what you’re seeing that all you can do is wander in silence and take it all in, usually followed by a broker, designer or someone from the shipyard grinning broadly. We’re lucky to have a couple of such yachts in this issue. Aurora, our cover star from Rossinavi, “shreds the rule book”, Caroline White writes in her exclusive feature. From look to layout, nothing is conventional about this superyacht built for an owner in his 30s.

Pink Gin, meanwhile, was commissioned by a man with a few more years on the clock but who still delights in “surprising and inspiring”. Hans Georg Näder is on his sixth Pink Gin – and it shows! Two shell doors (one extending his owner’s cabin over the water), reclaimed wood walls and chandeliers hanging from the boom. Join me in a toast to these two owners for breaking the mould – and shutting me up.
