Combining a tough explorer hull with an elegantly curved sheerline, this classically-styled, 56m with diesel-electric propulsion combines brawn and beauty. Meanwhile, Blue II's cosy, pared-back interior in gloss-finished teak and soft beige is accented with boldly patterned fabrics.

Interior design: Achille Salvagni Atelier
A vertical bow and just two accommodation decks, including a sundeck with a shaded and ventilated lounge area, keep the highly individual 40m Club M lean and low. The bespoke interior, with curving shapes (subtle references to planetary objects) in neutral tones with pops of blue and coral, has a stylised, mid-century vibe.

The brief said “sleek, aggressive, sexy” and Tatiana delivers with her bullet-shaped bow and sporty profile. But she’s not short on luxuries either, with a spectacular two-level beach club, two pools, several bars and a cinema – as well as a rich, jewel-toned palette – packed into her slim envelope.
Builder: Amels Yachts
Naval architecture: Damen Yachting
Exterior styling: Tim Heywood
Interior design: Winch Design
Synthesis is the fifth hull in the Amels 242 Limited Editions range and first hit the water at Damen’s Vlissingen based shipyard in January 2021. The 1,790GT interior features a dedicated owner’s deck with a foredeck Jacuzzi, a large swimming pool on the aft deck and lower deck wellness spa. There's accommodation for 12 guests in six cabins and space for 19 crew.

A masterclass in keeping volume sub-500 while eking out as much living space as possible, K2 is a low-draft yacht with a long, elegant profile. Inside, fluid, laid-back spaces are decorated in light sycamore veneer, darker ziricote accents and details in lacquer and stainless steel.

Interior design: Reymond Langton Design
Silent – thanks to cutting-edge diesel-electric propulsion – and spectacular – thanks to futuristic lines and a multi-deck panel of eye-popping windows: Artefact has the makings of a modern icon. Innovations run from the frameless glass that serves as outer walls on the owner’s deck, to a radical approach to noise attenuation, while unorthodox spaces include a tai chi room and a panoramic office.
Naval architecture: Sanlorenzo
Exterior styling: Sanlorenzo
The ultimate yacht for a post-pandemic world, this first 62Steel yacht is designed to allow owners to spend longer aboard in blessed seclusion. Spaces include an upper deck owner’s suite with a private terrace, swimming pool and study – an adjacent saloon could also be used to form a private apartment across the whole deck.
Naval architecture: Heesen, Van Oossanen Naval Architects
Exterior styling: Frank Laupman’s Omega Architects
Interior design: Bannenberg & Rowell
Launched at Heesen's Oss-based facility in August 2020 and sold two months later in October, the 55m Moskito features exterior design characterised by "shark-tooth" superstructure overhangs and vertical windows. Previously known as Project Pollux, Moskito is powered by two MTU 8V 4000 M63 diesel engines for a top speed of 15.5 knots and a range of 4,500 nautical miles.

An explorer in disguise, the diesel-electric 70m Polaris combines sharp lines (the project was previously known as King Shark) with a hull capable of taking on icy waters and a 6000nm range at 12 knots. Her interior is hardly utilitarian either, with plenty of marble, onyx and high-gloss wood.
