The 27 must-see new yachts at the 2016 Monaco Yacht Show

Amore Mio

It’s that time of year again, when the most notable superyacht launches of the year converge in the Mediterranean yachting mecca of Monaco. We’ve curated only the most innovative and interesting yachts from the top builders – be sure to find your way on board during the 2016 Monaco Yacht Show.

1. Amore Mio

A beach house on the sea was the brief for 45 metre Heesen superyacht Amore Mio, whose owners chose to remove the spa pool to make room on the sundeck for yoga. This yacht is packed with water toys, clever storage and innovations, such as self-deploying man overboard devices. She stands out on the water with a blunt-nosed bow and sharp lines by Omega Architects.

Baglietto 46M Fast

Baglietto’s new 46M Fast line is true to its name, hitting top speeds of 28 knots. The all-aluminium yacht marks an evolution of previous models, designed by long-time Baglietto collaborator Francesco Paszkowski.

Rakish, rectangular and contemporary lines give the 46M Fast a commanding personality, and she has been designed with plentiful outdoor spaces including a lush bow lounge for soaking up the sun.


The first hull from Dutch yard Moonen’s new Matica semi-custom line, Bijoux features a convertible transom, which can fold out to create a spacious beach club. This 29.90 metre displacement yacht features interiors by Adam Lay Studio and was built for a highly experienced owner who plans to use her to explore the Caribbean.

Coral Ocean

Not new, but worthy of fanfare, Lürssen’s Coral Ocean will be on display at Monaco. Recently refitted, this 72.54 metre John Bannenberg masterpiece has never featured in a magazine and is still one of the top 200 largest yachts in the world. When launched in 1994, she was one of the first yachts to feature a gym and spa area.

Custom Line Navetta 37

The latest Custom Line flagship arrives in time to celebrate the Ferretti Group’s 20th anniversary. A high bow and huge windows, including the sleek wrap-around glazing on the upper deck, defines the profile. The entire main deck forward is dedicated to the owner, and has a wide-body master suite.


Packed with innovations, including latest-generation electric captive winches and a lithium polymer battery system that aids silent running, 38.15 metre Dahlak proves Perini Navi’s commitment to advanced sailing technology. The 51.4 metre mast is the star of her carbon fibre rig, which helps support a sail area of more than 1,870 square metres.

Commissioned by a serial superyacht owner, Domani is a 45 metre displacement yacht that was launched by Benetti in April. Visitors to the Monaco Yacht Show will hope to learn more about her Carlo Galeazzi interiors, details of which have been closely guarded.

Highly efficient performance is the calling card of the award-winning, axe-bowed Palumbo 40M Sport series. Divine can reach a top speed of 20 knots or cruise economically at 16 knots. Her big volume allows accommodation for 10 guests and eight crew members.


The latest Amels 180, from the Dutch builder’s semi-custom Limited Editions range, is the intoxicating 55 metre Elixir. The timeless lines are by Tim Heywood, with interiors from Laura Sessa Design.

Captain Simon Ladbrooke praised the quick delivery that the semi-custom construction process enabled: “From making the decision to get into yachting and actually being on the water was a very short time.” Elixir is now available for charter through Y.Co.

Galactica Super Nova

Shooting across the water at 30 knots is 70 metre Heesen Galactica Super Nova, the largest yacht to use the innovative Fast Displacement Hull Form developed by Van Oossanen Naval Architects.

Speed was just one of the must-haves for the owner, along with a swimming pool with a waterfall. Eye-catching lines are by Espen Øino, while Sinot Exclusive Yacht Design’s interior makes use of subtle pops of colour.
