With the Monaco Yacht Show fast approaching, we take a look at the impressive line-up of yachts for sale on display in Port Hercule or at anchor this year...
Delivered in 2015, Lady Lara is being offered for sale for the first time since she first hit the water. She offers a wide range of amenities or socialising and relaxing on board, including two swimming pools (one of which transforms into a dance floor), an onboard cinema and a dedicated wellness area complete with a beauty salon, spa treatment room, hammam and gym. Guests can also make use of her touch-and-go helipad for adventures beyond the sea. Accommodation is for 16 guests in eight cabins, including an owner's suite with access to a private deck and library.
Asking €230,000,000 with Y.CO.
Originally known as Air, Ice picked up the award for Motor Yacht of the Year at the 2006 World Superyacht Awards, in part because she was one of the first vessels to be fitted with electrically powered Azipod propellers. She sports a minimalist interior, comprised of tables and many horizontal surfaces made of limestone. The five bathtubs were carved from solid blocks, so large and heavy that the yacht was reportedly built around them.
Asking €120,000,000 with Blackorange Yachts.
New York and its skyline were the inspiration for Phoenix 2’s styling. The result? Empire State skyscrapers on the bar stools in the sky lounge bar, which are lit by uplighters reminiscent of the torch held by the Statue of Liberty, as well as the firebird figurehead that looks as if it may have flown in from the Chrysler Building. Her style is grand Art Deco with a ballroom, a gilt-and-black Steinway grand piano, vast dining table, crystal chandelier and an adjoining wine cellar. Further features include a cinema, a winter garden with guest dining, a beach club and a beauty salon with a hammam. She accommodates up to 14 guests in seven cabins, including the full-beam owner’s suite forward on the main deck.
Feadship’s Savannah boasts a trophy cabinet of awards and international acclaim as one of the fleet's truly "eco-conscious" superyachts. As the first-ever hybrid yacht, her eco-focused and quiet electric-diesel performance is allied to an extremely efficient hull design. Her series of innovative design features continue as the first superyacht to be given a completely metallic paint job, but she is arguably best known for her Nemo Lounge. The semi-submerged sheet of glazing in the hull provides a view under the surface of the sea like no other.

Builder: Royal Denship
Iconic explorer Force Blue was once owned by a predominant character in the Formula One world and is regarded for her comfort, adventure features and versatility. She first tasted saltwater in 2002 as the 63.3-metre Big Roi, designed as a trawler-style expedition yacht, and has since been refitted throughout her life. Much of the work of her most recent refit, completed in 2022, centred around a seven-metre stern extension to allow for a large wrap-around swim platform. While H2 Yacht Design handled the exterior re-design, Italian architect Michele Bonan conceived her new interior. Her lofty bow, open forward deck (storing a wealth of tenders and toys) and 8,000-nautical-mile range certainly make her fit for exploration.
Drizzle has had only one owner since new and has remained under their stewardship since 2012 with a comprehensive maintenance schedule that has kept her in near-perfect condition. The owner collaborated with British design studio RWD to fashion a neutral, contemporary interior intended for wide appeal. Her most recent refit in 2019 saw her repainted and fitted with a new, full-beam swim platform with a shower and retractable self-washing swim ladder. Drizzle joined the market following the completion of her Lloyds 10-Year Special Survey in May 2022.
Asking €63,000,000 (VAT paid) with Hamilton Marine International.
Builder: Damen Yachting
It is not just her imposing profile that makes Dapple powerful, but she also provides the scope to carry a multitude of equipment for exploration. Her layout has been designed with military precision – built with a fully commercial heli deck and a fully equipped dive centre with an integrated decompression chamber. Designed for global adventures, the support vessel is known for her speed and efficiency with a range of over 8,700 nautical miles at 13.5 knots. Guests can also soak up the 360-degree views from the bridge.
Asking €28,000,000 with Y.CO.
Part of the Amels 212 series, Ventum Maris is no stranger to luxury details, from the touch-and-go helipad and large tender garage to an elevator connecting all levels for guest convenience. She has gone through several refits between 2019 and 2021 at Amels, Monaco Marine and Amico. Tim Heywood leads the exterior design, showcasing a fusion of artistic vision and engineering prowess, and, inside, the space is one of welcoming comfort, where her original interiors by Andrew Winch were redesigned by Maria Poggi. The yacht's large sundeck is a continuation of this relaxing aesthetic, home to a Jacuzzi tub encircled by sunpads and a contraflow pool, accompanied by a swim-up wet bar.
Asking €65,000,000 with Edmiston.
Builder: Delta Marine
Delivered in 2013, Invictus boasts an impressive charter career and has six individually designed guest cabins on the main deck. This is in addition to the upper full-beam master suite, where the owner can enjoy wrap-around windows overlooking a private terrace and out to sea. The yacht's impressive interior volume is brought to life with exotic woods, rare Italian marbles and Art Deco fixtures, while large picture windows throughout afford magnificent views. Entertainment is key, with a bar on every deck, a bespoke Lalique bar on the owner's level and a piano in the high-ceilinged main saloon.
Asking $94,000,000 with Burgess.
Polar Star was built in 2005 to a design by Espen Øino and, as her name might suggest, features an ice-class hull with an impressive range of 7,000 range miles, granting her access to remote parts of the world. Polar Star underwent an extensive refit in 2016 that saw the aft platform extended by two metres, the hexagonal spa pool replaced with a more practical rectangular, glass-fronted one and the guest office remodelled into a massage room. It also received a full Pinmar repaint in 2021. Accommodation is for 12 guests in five cabins.
Asking €59,000,000 with Eastwind Yachts.
Seanna was designed by Benetti, who delivered her in 2011, with interior design and styling by Redman Whiteley Dixon and Susan Young. A grand marble lobby is found at the heart of the vessel and her interior is finished in fine Italian leathers, rich walnut woodwork and nickel inlays. The saloon converts to a cinema and there is a separate TV lounge adjacent to the formal dining room, while the main deck also boasts a massage room for two and a library with an electric fireplace.
Asking €49,500,000 with Burgess.
Flag started life at Feadship in 2000 but underwent an extensive refit in 2012 that saw her pick up the Neptune for Best Refit at a World Superyacht Awards the following year. Highlights include a homey interior restyled by Chahan with a flexible seven-cabin layout offering accommodation for up to 18 guests. A lift offers stair-free access to all decks, including the sundeck where guests will find a pool and a pizza oven.
Having only ever had one owner for private use, Moneikos has been meticulously maintained since her delivery in 2006 and is in turnkey condition. It is her autonomous owner's suite, located on the upper deck immediately beneath the sundeck, that sets her apart with 180° panoramic views and privacy for family life. She comfortably accommodates a party of up to 16 across eight cabins, and the Studio Dedalo interior is enhanced by comfortable seating to create an inviting atmosphere. Placing less of an emphasis on sunbathing, the sundeck is mostly covered, which gives more internal volume to the vessel. Further highlights include the main dining room, where optic fibre micro spotlights turn the ceiling into a starry vault for added intimacy.
Asking €27,890,000 with Royal Yacht International.
Calypso's strengths come in the form of volume. She was originally designed by Michael Leach, who does not hold back on ceiling heights, reaching 4.2 metres in the two-level master suite. The full-beam suite is described as a "sanctuary" and, sporting an overhead skylight, is truly impressive. Her lofty interior lends itself to a large accommodation configuration of up to 18 guests across seven cabins. Further highlights are showcased across the sun deck, split into three sections, home to everything from a Jacuzzi and enclosed gym to an outdoor cinema setup.
Asking €40,000,000 with Y.CO.
Marguerite was built in 2004 under the supervision of the Moran Yacht & Ship's new construction team with a design brief that required a private owner’s area, professional dive centre, capacious tender storage and autonomous operation for thirty days. Fresh from a full interior refit after a change in ownership at the end of 2021, the yacht for sale accommodates 12 guests in six large cabins consisting of a two-deck owner's apartment with an observation lounge, access to a private foredeck and a floating staircase that leads to an upper deck study. A large sun deck/helicopter deck has a ten-person Jacuzzi that has been installed with a dedicated insulated storage tank, allowing the tub to be emptied and refilled with immediate hot water.
Asking $48,000,000 with Moran Yacht & Ship.
Mia Elise II
Builder: Trinity Yachts
With a relatively small draft of just over 2.80m, Mia Elise II is one of the largest yachts in the world capable of accessing the shallow anchorages in the Bahamas and Caribbean. She demonstrates an ingenious layout across a separate owner's deck with a forward-facing master stateroom that stretches across the full beam – enhanced by the private deck providing panoramic views. Further highlights are visible in the expansive living areas and various outside deck spaces, including a fold-down beach club and a separate gym and spa. Accommodation is for 12 across 6 cabins, plus a convertible staff cabin.
Asking $34,900,000 with Fraser.
Caipirinha was designed by Espen Øino with an interior by Mark Berryman and delivered by Lürssen in 2009. She picked up the coveted Neptune for Motor Yacht of the Year at the 2010 World Superyacht Awards and was refitted as recently as 2017. Oversized windows fill the interior with natural light, while each guest cabin is finished with low noise, state-of-the-art electric blinds for privacy. The layout is described by the broker as "versatile, catering to a variety of social gatherings", including a formal saloon that can be converted to a cinema via a hidden screen and projector.
Asking €59,990,000 with Burgess.
A category winner in the World Superyacht Awards 2023, Come Together was a direct response to the owner’s brief – a yacht that would limit its carbon footprint, house an expansive sundeck and provide a touch-and-go point for a helicopter. Her angular exterior and geometric windows, which are now the yacht’s distinctive feature, are the work of Espen Oeino International. Come Together is the first in the series and built for a serial yacht owner, equipped with a relaxed, beachouse-style interior by Winch Design.
My Legacy, delivered in 2021, celebrates the best of Italy’s artisanship with an opulence that’s becoming rare. The owner initially intended to do a slight refit of his much-loved vintage yacht but when that proved unpractical, he decided to go with a new build that was larger and had a greater emphasis on comfort. What really sets her apart is the classic interior, highlighting a specific kind of craftsmanship – seen across marquetry resembling individual art pieces, gilded side chairs, crystal chandeliers and luxurious fabrics.
Asking €44,950,000 with Burgess.
Builder: Turquoise Yachts
Turquoise was delivered by the Proteksan-Turquoise shipyard in 2011 to a design by Dubois Naval Architects and is offered for sale following a 2022 refit. Work included an upgrade of her interiors – which were overhauled in 2014 by H2 Yacht Design and again in 2019 – as well as a new metallic hull paint, teak caulking and her 10-year class survey. A full-beam owner’s suite is positioned on the main deck, with its own private office, along with a VIP cabin. A private upper saloon is complete with its own pantry – and a baby grand piano – that leads out onto an al fresco dining area.

Interiors and exteriors are courtesy of British studio Winch Design and she accommodates up to 16 guests in total with a two-master layout said to be ideal for long-term, live-aboard cruising.
Kahalani was designed by Feadship De Voogt Naval Architects with an interior by renowned Paris-based Rémi Tessier. She benefits from having two large saloons, with the bridge deck saloon unusually being full beam. Tessier's contrasting light and dark finishes make for a spectacularly clean and contemporary look throughout the interior. The generously-sized sundeck sports a Jacuzzi, full bar and completely sheltered dining for 12. The bridge deck offers indoor-outdoor formal dining at a large circular table for 12, thanks to semi-circular glass sliding doors.
Asking €42,500,000 with Camper & Nicholsons International.
Sea Huntress is a rare offering on the brokerage market as one of only a handful of Feadships designed inside and out by Terence Disdale. She was delivered in 1997 but a 2020 refit saw her overhauled and repainted from top to bottom with extensive areas of new teak decking and a complete refurbishment of her interior decor. In 2022, under her most recent owner, the helipad was upgraded to carry a three-tonne helicopter and she is also accompanied by a nine-metre and six-metre tender. Her full-beam main saloon is said by the brokers to be "probably the largest on a yacht of this size".
Asking €29,750,000 (VAT paid) with Camper & Nicholsons International.
Papa was built in steel and aluminium to a design by Tim Heywood and is one of Amels's popular 180 Limited Editions superyachts. Her crowning glory is referred to as the split-level sun deck, offering guests open-air dining with a Teppanyaki grill, an eight-person Jacuzzi and a flip-down television. The yacht is made extra versatile thanks to a touch-and-go helipad that doubles as a socialising space with movable loungers and sun pads.
Asking €39,000,000 with Burgess.

Drumbeat was delivered by New Zealand-based yard Alloy Yachts in 2002. Her large wraparound windows by Dubois Naval Architects welcome an abundance of light and 360-degree views into the main saloon.

The large flybridge acts as the principal helm position – encouraging lots of active participation when sailing.
Asking €22,000,000 with Groupe Atalante.
Were Dreams was designed by Tim Heywood and delivered in 2008 as the first in Amels' line of 171 Limited Edition models.
