Built with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure, ISA Classic Resilience hit the waters in late July 2021. Key features include a classic profile and innovative stern door aft that folds down to sea level. Twin MTU diesel engines allow a top speed of 16 knots and a range of 5,500 nautical miles when cruising at 14 knots.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
