When we launched our Next Generation series last year to showcase superyachting’s next wave of power players, we were intrigued to discover what trends might emerge. Some clear themes are already coming through, which we hope will spread a little optimism. One key learning is that upcycling and innovative green solutions are consistent concerns for our future pioneers. As yacht photographer Olga Logvina says in our photo shoot, “The most important thing for millennials is that what they’re doing is meaningful and makes an impact.”

Another concern we hear about is longevity, and as Simon de Burton points out in our wellness focus, the wealthy are no longer accepting of the fact that life should end after three score years and ten. Take Larry Ellison, superyacht owner and co-founder of Oracle, who recently declared he wants to live forever. Personally I couldn’t think of anything worse – although that might change if I could spend my eternity on a superyacht.

For the last decade or so, a 106.5 metre yacht known as Poseidonos has appeared in our list of the Top 101 yachts in the world. Not much was known about it, but information dripped in from time to time, whetting our appetites for a superyacht we were desperate to get on board. So when the door to coverage creaked open a few months back, we rushed through it – and we’re thrilled to be able to bring you the complete story, exclusively, in this issue. This is a superyacht unlike any other, converted from a passenger ship over the course of a decade. It’s the culmination of one couple’s pursuit of perfection – a peerless platform to host friends and family. It has now, suitably, been renamed Dream. There’s more dreaming elsewhere in this issue, from Monaco royal Pierre Casiraghi’s plans to build his own superyacht, to Richard Hadida’s desire to take Oyster Yachts back to the top. And if you’re dreaming of getting in shape post-holiday season, we’ve got you covered, too.
