LOA: 70.2 m

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.

LOA: 55.5 m

Yard: Lürssen

Naval architecture: Lürssen

Exterior styling: Bannenberg & Rowell

Interior design: Bannenberg & Rowell

Known for the very largest yachts, this boat represents Lürssen’s bid to establish itself in the (relatively) modest 55 to 75m size bracket. Project 13800 utterly bespoke, with lines influenced by the Jon Bannenberg-designed 1973 Lürssen Carinthia VI, and an interior whose colours and textures are described by the yard as “fearless”.

Azimut Grande Trideck

LOA: 38.2m

Builder: Azimut Yachts

Naval architecture: PL Ausonio Naval Architecture; Azimut Yachts

Exterior styling: Alberto Mancini

Interior design: Achille Salvagni Architetti

Azimut’s first foray into true superyacht territory retains the speed that the builder is known for, with a “displacement-to-planing” hull that can reach a respectable 24 knots. There’s a major emphasis on exterior spaces – chicly furnished – particularly the split-level main deck aft featuring a “sea view terrace” and a full-height beach club.

Viva

LOA: 94m

Builder: Feadship

Naval architecture: Feadship De Voogt Naval Architects

Exterior styling: Azure Yacht Design and Naval Architecture; Studio De Voogt

Interior design: Peter Marino

She may have been built on a grand scale, but Viva’s interior is informal – her designer describes it as “open beach-house style”. The owner wanted to keep the environmental impact of this 94m the same as his previous 62m Feadship and the yard responded with a raft of tech, from a hybrid propulsion system to a waste treatment plant and heat recovery systems. Elsewhere, a 14m beam and the longest hull doors ever seen on a Feadship allow Viva to carry a massive tender.

LOA: 54.4m

Builder: Gulf Craft

Naval architecture: Yankee Delta Studio

Exterior styling: Cristiano Gatto Design

Interior design: Cristiano Gatto Design

Billed as the largest series composite yacht in the world, the first Majesty 175 took four years to build. She packs on 14 guests in seven cabins, including an owner's suite with direct access to a five-metre infinity pool.

WHY200

LOA: 27.05m

Builder: Wally

Naval architecture: Laurent Giles

Exterior styling: Ferretti Group / Luca Bassani

Interior design: A. Vallicelli & C

The WHY200 is all about maximising volume and is purported to have 50% more living space than a traditional yacht of its length. There are four dining areas, three saloons, three “sun lounges”, five guest cabins, three crew cabins and an extendable beach club that measures 32m2– all on a 27m hull. Crucially, the high bow encloses what on most yachts is an external space, creating a spectacular owner’s cabin with wrap-around glass. And you don’t lose the foredeck space, it simply sits on top of the cabin.

LOA: 49.9m

Builder: Overmarine

Naval architecture: Pierluigi Ausonio, Overmarine

Exterior styling: Alberto Mancini

Interior design: Alberto Mancini

Overmarine have sensed a winner with the Mangusta Oceano 50 – the first hull is freshly launched but two more are already in-build. Star features include both a swimming pool and spa pool on the sundeck – and with the toys and tenders out, the foredeck garage can be filled to become a third pool.
