19 of the best new yachts on display at the Monaco Yacht Show 2018

Sanlorenzo 500Exp

  • Length: 47.2m
  • Shipyard: Sanlorenzo
  • Exterior/interior design: Francesco Paszkowski Design

The Sanlorenzo for adventurers, the 460Exp represented an entirely new concept for the refined Italian yard when it was introduced three years ago. It was designed by Francesco Paszkowski to be self-sufficient over long ranges and carry a serious number of toys. Now the builder introduces an evolved version – the 500Exp. Developed in close collaboration with her owner, the 500GT yacht extends the stern area to make room for a helipad.

  • Length: 27m
  • Shipyard: CCN
  • Exterior/interior design: Tommaso Spadolini, Roberto Cavalli

Fashion designer Roberto Cavalli teamed up with his friend, yacht designer Tommaso Spadolini, to conceive his dream yacht. The brief called for what could be opposing criteria: maximum contact with the sea and utmost privacy – yet solutions were found to satisfy both. In any case, Cavalli will be hard to catch on this water jet propelled 40-knot boat. With strong styling to match his strong personality, Freedom is a one-off – what builder CCN calls “Fuoriserie”.

El Leon

Long distance or high speed? You don’t have to choose - both are possible in the new Mangusta GranSport line. El Leon is the first of the new series and the builder’s new flagship. The all-aluminium fast displacement yacht performs optimally at displacement speed for a 3,500nm range, yet can also reach close to 30 knots when needed. She may represent a new series, but with that muscular, dynamic styling, she’s definitely a Mangusta.

Volpini 2

  • Length: 57.7m
  • Shipyard: Amels
  • Exterior/interior design: Tim Heywood/Reymond Langton

The first hull in the new Amels 188 Limited Editions, Volpini 2 sports some forward-thinking engineering. With IMO Tier III regulations looming that require world cruising yachts over 500GT to reduce NOx emissions in engine exhaust by 70 per cent, Amels decided to tackle the challenge with the new 188 ahead of the requirement. As such, Volpini 2 relies on hybrid power, combining waste heat recovery, a battery bank and two generators in a father-and-son configuration to increase efficiency and reduce emissions.

The largest yacht ever built in Poland, Viatoris was a custom project three years in the making from first discussions to delivery. This has laid the groundwork for a new C133 semi-custom series at Conrad with faster lead times. Reymond Langton lent its expertise to create this 40 metre beauty featuring a saloon with sliding doors on three sides and a main deck master with port and starboard balconies.
