Pershing 140

At 43.53 metres, the Pershing 140 is the Italian brand’s largest design to date – and its first made out of aluminium. Typically sporty, it has a steel grid on the bow that is reminiscent of a coupé car.

The yacht was penned by Fulvio De Simoni, who has designed every Pershing model since 1985. Part of the main deck is raised into a mezzanine, creating more space for a huge water-level beach club with fold-out sides. One of the three MTU engine options will offer a top speed of 38 knots.

The Pershing 140 is expected to debut in 2018.

Heesen Project Nova

Silence is golden on this in-build 49.8 metre from Heesen, but her hybrid diesel electric propulsion will also offer relatively eco-friendly consumption.

Project Nova will burn 98 litres per hour at 12 knots and only 57 litres per hour at 10 knots. She will still have a respectable 16.3 knot top speed with her main engines and reach 9 knots with hybrid diesel electric propulsion and boast a transatlantic range.

The hull and superstructure were joined in January 2016 with the build on track for delivery in Spring 2017. Project Nova features in our favourite Heesen superyachts.

Meanwhile, Project Ruya has reached the outfitting phase and Project Alida is also under construction. As we look forward to Project Alida's 2017 delivery, interior designer Dickie Bannenberg gave us his thoughts on its top design features.

Amels 188

The in-build 57.7 metre Amels 188 is the first hybrid Limited Editions and will feature Amels’ hybrid switchboard and waste-heat recovery system.

Amels became the first Dutch yacht builder to meet the new IMO regulations when it completed engineering tests on the Amels 188 design.

The yard believes that it could offer a €150,000 return on investment over a three-year period. The engineering phase is completed and the first hull is expected to be delivered in spring 2018.

Reymond Langton Design penned the interior, which they describe as contemporary but warm, and Tim Heywood designed the exterior.

Amels is also working on the 83m Limited Editions 272, the first 73.5m Amels 242 Project Freefall, and the second Amels 242 Project 7402.
