Sunseeker-is-one-of-the-worlds-finest-semi-custom-yards

Semi-custom yachts are very much the best of both worlds — combining the relatively short lead times of production building with much of the flexibility associated with full custom projects. We take a closer look at the top yards from around the world that are raising the bar.

Previously exclusively building in composite, the British builder recently announced it was moving into metal. It has teamed up with Dutch yard Icon Yachts to build a 49 metre aluminium superyacht called the Sunseeker 161. Announced at the Monaco Yacht Show, the Sunseeker 161 represents the British company’s first foray into metal built yachts and is set to launch in spring 2021.

Founded in 1967, Palumbo Group has made huge inroads into the superyacht world in recent years, with both custom and semi-custom projects. Production has ramped up since the 2016 acquisition of ISA Yachts with new-build projects taking shape in Ancona (pictured above). The yard also has an extensive network of refit and maintenance facilities stretching from Tenerife to Malta.

The 20.2 metre 670 yacht made its debut in June last year as parent company Ferretti Group celebrated its 50th anniversary in Venice.
