The 60 metre Come Together is one of the most memorable launches of the year so far and is the first fruit of a collaboration between three powerhouses: Amels, Espen Øino and Winch Design. Come Together (the owner is a fan of The Beatles) features a bronze exterior with trapezoid windows that are hard to miss even during the Monaco Yacht Show where she made her grand debut. The team at Winch Design, who had worked with the owner before, created a calm and beachy ambience that borrows design cues from the natural world with Jerusalem limestone and light-bleached matte oak. Come Together is the first of five Amels 60 Limited Editions already sold.

Energy, another entry from Amels and Espen Øino, is a 77.8 metre custom project commissioned by an owner who has already embarked on a global itinerary. At 2,885 GT, the yacht is the second largest member of the Amels fleet by gross tonnage, falling slightly short of the shipyard's current 86 metre flagship Here Comes The Sun. Embodying the owner’s “unique yachting vision” key features include an open-top deck, generous aft deck pool and extra wide side decks that can be utilised as private guest balconies.
The first 37 metre B.Yond model by Benetti splashed in 2022 and is designed for adventurous voyages that leave a small footprint. The superyacht was the vision of Paolo Vitelli, founder and CEO of Azimut-Benetti, and was one of the last projects by the late Stefano Righini. The first in the series, named Goga, is built with a steel hull that belies an elegant, contemporary interior and her length allows her to access smaller Mediterranean harbours than her other superyacht counterparts. Highlights include an aft-facing owner's suite with a private terrace and an indoor-outdoor dining area forward on the main deck.
With flowing lines and a metallic blue-green hull, it is no surprise that Kenshō was one of the most talked about yachts at the Monaco Yacht Show - even sitting at anchor. At just over 75 metres, she was launched by Admiral earlier in 2022 after a six-year design and build process and takes her place as the largest launch by the shipyard to date. Dutch design and naval architecture firm Azure, together with Berlin-based archineers.berlin, designed the striking exterior of the boat which takes inspiration from a pebble weathered by the ocean. The name Kenshō translates to “seeing one’s true nature” in Japanese.
Edge is the first of two XSR models built by the rebooted Antalya-based shipyard Sarp Yachts. The yacht features a composite Fast Displacement Hull Form, pioneered by Van Oossanen, with a carbon fibre superstructure and is finished in an eye-catching “Porsche Guards red”. Her exterior and interior is the work of Red Yacht Design offering accommodation for nine guests and a tiered open-air beach club. The second hull, which has almost been completed, features a diesel-electric hybrid propulsion system.
Greek shipyard Golden Yachts delivered the 88 metre Project X ahead of its debut at the Monaco Yacht Show. With exterior design by British studio Ken Freivokh, Project X is characterised by cascading decks, a large open aft deck with a swimming pool and a unique column-shaped ‘X’ structure amidships which hides an internal three-deck atrium complete with internal balconies and a circular glass elevator. Interiors of the 3,000 GT yacht come from Italian studio Massari Design with marble, leather and wood having been used throughout, culminating in over 150 different materials.
Acala was commissioned by an experienced yachtsman and a repeat client of the Cantiere delle Marche shipyard. Having previously owned a Darwin 102 by the same name and a 78 metre Lürssen, he was looking for a new vessel that would allow his family and friends to cruise far and wide. Horacio Bozzo, Sergio Cutolo/Hydro Tec and Simon Hamui teamed up on the project and three years later, Acala made her debut at the Monaco Yacht Show. The upper saloon assumes the role of the main saloon on board while a large owner's cabin was sacrificed to accommodate two standard cabins instead for cruising with friends.
Italian shipyard Baglietto delivered the first unit in its all-new 41 metre DOM 133 series earlier this year and is the first of at least five hulls currently sold and under construction. Hull number one, named Attitude, made its debut at Cannes Yachting Festival and features exterior design by Stefano Vafiadis with interiors by Mexican designer Ezequiel Farca. The design of the DOM 133 is defined by a flexible, split-level beach club with an infinity pool with a floor that can be raised or lowered to increase the use of space in the cockpit as needed.
Formerly known as Project Blue, the 160 metre superyacht had her name officially unveiled as she was handed over to her owners. Blue departed Lürssen’s Bremen facilities en route to Malta, showing off her curvy Terence Disdale exterior and a wealth of onboard amenities. She marks the fifth-longest superyacht in the world, with a gross tonnage of 15,320 GT superyacht and a beam of 22.5 metres. She is also equipped with an innovative after-treatment system and a wastewater treatment plan which allows wastewater to be safely disposed of in "drinking water quality".
The 117 metre Infinity set off from Oceanco’s Alblasserdam facilities in May and has since been spotted port-hopping along the Cote d’Azur. From the so-called Billionaires Bay in Antibes to the iconic anchorage overlooking Èze, she has wasted no time seeing the sights of the Riviera. She sports a sharp, geometric exterior by Espen Øino with naval architecture by Lateral Naval Architects. Infinity is both the largest yacht ever constructed at Oceanco and the largest to be built in the Netherlands. Although, the record-breaking build is soon set to be superseded by Oceanco's in-build 127 metre sailing superyacht Project Y721.
