19 of the best new yachts on display at the Monaco Yacht Show 2018
1/19
Cyclone
  • Length: 43.7 metres
  • Shipyard: Tansu Yachts
  • Exterior/interior design: Tansu Yachts

After four years in development, the third and latest launch of the shipyard was launched last year and sold just earlier this month. Featuring Tansu’s characteristic military styling and sleek silver topsides, Cyclone also features a notably large aft deck, which can be used to carry two 6.2 metre tenders, and a library. The owner’s suite on the upper deck also includes a spacious private terrace for lounging in peace and quiet.

Brigadoon
  • Length: 36.3m
  • Shipyard: Moonen
  • Exterior/interior design: René van der Velden Design/Nauta Design/ Studio Indigo

Anyone familiar with Moonen will take one look at Brigadoon and see something’s different. The Dutch yard has added a fresh aesthetic to its go-anywhere DNA with Rene van der Velden’s Caribbean designs. Brigadoon – of the Martinique series – embodies this with her clean modern lines. What’s not apparent at first glance is that the hull is built in high-tensile steel, a stronger carbon-rich alloy that saves weight to keep the draught at 2.1 metres and improve fuel economy.

Irisha
  • Length: 51m
  • Shipyard: Heesen
  • Exterior/interior design: Harrison Eidsgaard

This is not a case of styling belying purpose. Irisha looks fast and she is, exceeding 26 knots in sea trials. Desiring a custom yacht, her owner requested an inimitable look and Harrison Eidsgaard delivered, sculpting a fighter jet-like profile built over Heesen’s proven 5000 Aluminium class hull. The soon-to-be charter yacht has a relaxing ambience inside with a neutral palette, lots of texture and a sophisticated lighting system.

Cecilia
  • Length: 49.98m
  • Shipyard: Wider
  • Exterior/interior design: Fulvio De Simoni, Wider/Ideaeitalia

When you think of Wider, you can’t help but envision an extraordinary beach club. This standout feature of the builder’s superyacht range shines on the new flagship Wider 165, adding a sauna to the space in addition to stowing the Wider 32 tender. The Wider 165 has the same diesel-electric propulsion as her smaller sister, the Wider 150, with azimuthal pods and a battery bank. Something new is the helicopter pad on the foredeck.

Custom Line Navetta 42

The biggest ever Navetta – the first to exceed 300 gross tonnes – has the space to offer the owner total privacy and crew the means to do their jobs efficiently. The stern is an exceptional area with a large beach club that’s all about leisure thanks to a side-opening garage for launching and retrieving tenders and toys.

6/19
Riva 110 Dolcevita
  • Length: 33.53m
  • Shipyard: Riva
  • Exterior/interior design: Officina Italiana Design, Ferretti Group

Like a loft on the sea, the main deck of the new Dolcevita – the fibreglass flagship of the Riva fleet – has 270 degrees of views out of floor-to-ceiling windows and headroom suitable for pro-basketball players. This is topped by a flybridge that flows into the foredeck, forming what Riva dubs an “infinity deck” of 34 square metres.

7/19
Latona

Retro is hot right now, something Latona has embraced, drawing her inspiration from CRN’s SuperConero series from the 1960s. Adding modern-day enjoyment to the classic look are fashionable features like a balcony that can be used under way, a master cabin terrace and a beach club sporting something they didn’t have in the 60s – a drive-in tender bay that converts into an indoor swimming pool.

Flying Dagger

Flying Dagger really flies, reaching 31 knots flat out with three 16-cylinder MTUs and water jet propulsion. She does so pretty quietly too for, despite her water jets, she sounds more like a full displacement yacht under way benefitting from the latest research in noise and vibration reduction. The water jets also give her a shallow draught of only 2 metres.

9/19
Azimut Grande 32 Metri

This is a yacht that aims to innovate. The unusual bow, side-access tender garage and full-height windows on either side of the owner’s suite give a hint of that. The superstructure is built entirely of carbon and epoxy resin; the weight savings combined with the D2P (displacement to planing) hull, with its double chine and wave-piercing bow, deliver maximum fuel efficiency over a range of speeds.

10/19
Baglietto 48

Built to Lloyd’s class, Baglietto’s newest 48 metre has a traditional layout that excels in functionality, featuring a large galley and pantry, ample storage and space for tender and toys on the foredeck. The fun stuff isn’t forgotten either – the stern is dedicated to a 47 square metre beach club with steam shower, bar and additional space for a gym or spa. Up top is a vast sundeck with infinity pool.
