The top 10 most popular superyacht names

1/10

Spirit

Choosing your superyacht’s name is a great opportunity to express your individuality, but with so many yachts on the water, there is a high chance of doubling or even tripling up.

Using data from US broker Denison Yacht Sales as well as our own superyacht directory we’ve rounded up ten of the most popular yacht names.

Our list starts with Spirit, the name given to the 35 metre catamaran superyacht (pictured above) as well as five other yachts over 24 metres.

My Way

Whether you prefer the Frank Sinatra original or the Sex Pistols cover, there is no denying the cultural impact of this classic tune. There are seven superyachts named My Way in our directory, including this 29.8 metre Sunseeker that was launched by the British yard in 2010.

Escape

Another highly popular superyacht name is Escape — a fitting title for the place where many owners go to get away from the stresses of the modern world. At least seven yachts bear this exact name and five more use variations on the theme, such as Sweet Escape and Magnificent Escape.

The most recent example is My Escape (pictured above), which hit the water in 2015 boasting interiors by Cyrille Bieri.

4/10

Destiny

Some believe that they were always fated to own a yacht, and that certainly seems to be the case with this 37.3 metre Heesen. Her name, Destiny, is one of the most popular superyacht names, with seven other yachts in our database going by this name.

Currently offered for charter with Burgess, Destiny was launched in 2007 as part of the yard's Heesen 3700 semi-custom series. She accommodate up to 12 guests and is capable of 28 knots flat-out.

Aurora

With two major 2017 launches both bearing this name, Aurora has risen to number five on our list of the most popular superyacht names. Perhaps inspired by the aurora borealis, this moniker was chosen by the owners of both the new 74 metre Lürssen and the 49.9 metre from Rossinavi. Our database lists seven other yachts over 24 metres that are also called Aurora.

Andiamo

Since Italy is one of the biggest yacht building nations on earth, it’s only fitting that our list has an Italian name near the top (in case you didn’t know, Andiamo means “let’s go” in Italian). Denison lists 238 boats over 30ft with this name in the USA alone, while our records contain nine superyachts registered as Andiamo, including this 36 metre Benetti Classic 120 (pictured above) that was launched in 2006 and the recent 48 metre launch from Baglietto.

Dolce Vita

Another Italian moniker, Dolce Vita is a truly fitting name for a yacht, since it is used as a byword for the good life of relaxation, sunshine and luxurious living. The phrase dates back to Federico Fellini's 1960 film and has now spread all around the world to grace the transoms of nine yachts built as far afield as America, the Netherlands and Turkey - as is the case for the Numarine 105HT yacht Dolce Vita (pictured above).

8/10

Carpe Diem

A fitting Latin motto for a decisive owner who always seizes the day, Carpe Diem is one of the most popular superyacht names. There are ten yachts with this moniker in our database, including this 58.22 metre Trinity yacht  Carpe Diem, which was launched in 2011.

Serenity

Peace and quiet is a key commodity on board superyachts, and this is reflected by the sheer popularity of the name Serenity. According to Denison, there are 307 yachts registered in the USA with this name. That number drops to three when looking at American yachts over 79 foot (24.1 metres), however, our global database lists 11 different superyachts called Serenity.

The 40.53 metre IAG yacht Serenity (pictured above) is one particularly notable example. Launched in 2016, she features several fixed balconies and a shallow wading pool on the upper deck.

Freedom

At the top of our list, and surely a strong contender for the world’s most popular superyacht name, is Freedom. There are 13 entries in the superyacht directory for this name, which is hardly surprising as that is exactly what many owners crave from their yachting experience.

The most prominent superyacht called Freedom is the 70 metre from Italian yard Benetti, while the most recent is the 29 metre motor yacht launched by Hargrave Custom Yachts in 2016 (pictured above).
