Hawaii isn't usually on the itinerary for superyachts, but recently 87 metre Lonian and her 66 metre support vessel Hodor ventured off the beaten path to get a taste of paradise. Lonian was delivered by Feadship in 2018 and features an innovative aft deck pool set-up complete with cabanas and pop-up TV screen integrated into the pool's edge. Her tender and toy storage is taken care of on board Hodor, a support vessel built by specialist Spanish shipyard Astilleros Armón.
Spotted: Where to find the world's coolest superyachts
The global superyacht fleet is always on the move. BOAT keeps track of some of the most famous yachts in the world, spotting them in locations such as the Seychelles, Germany and Gibraltar.

Juice in Monaco
After undertaking her maiden voyage to Gibraltar, Feadship's 71-metre Juice made her inaugural visit to Monaco. The yacht's RWD-designed exterior is characterised by a sweeping hull line and long expanses of dark glazing, while her highly-private interiors are by Peter Marino. One of the yacht’s unique design features is a super-lightweight carbon composite sundeck that keeps the yacht’s centre of gravity as low as possible for enhanced seakeeping.
Pi in St Barths
Feadship's 77m superyacht Pi has been spotted cruising in St Barths, showing off her Jarkko Jämsén exteriors. Her superstructure represents an extraordinary use of glass, with unique 'double curvature' panels which act as structural support on top of their aesthetic function. Originally lauched as Syzygy 818 in 2019, the yacht is home to a glass-bottomed pool and soothing, Japanse-inspired interiors from Sinot Exclusive Yacht Design. She was snapped enjoying the Gustavia sunshine by BOAT's online editor Holly Overton.
Andromeda in the Seychelles
107m Andromeda has been conquering the seven seas since her delivery in 2016, and has most recently been spotted exploring the waters of Port Glaud in the Seychelles. The 5,937 GT superyacht is one of two Kleven-built explorers commissioned for an experienced owner, and Andromeda was initially named Ulysses before the current Ulysses stormed onto the scene in 2018. Exterior design comes from New Zealand-based designer Oscar Mike with interiors from British studio H2.
Lusine in London
The 60 metre Project Falcon, Heesen's largest steel superyacht to date, has been spotted in London displaying her new name Lusine. The yacht hit the water in 2021 sporting a chiselled exterior courtesy of Omega Architects and an interior by Sinot Yacht and Architecture Design. A glass elevator lies at the heart of the design while a touch-and-go helipad forward allows guests to come and go in complete privacy.
Ahpo in Jamaica
The 115 metre Lürssen Ahpo - understood to mean "grand lady" in Mandarin - has been spotted in Port Antonio, Jamaica on her maiden voyage. Built under the codename Project Enzo, the six-deck superyacht was completed in 2021 and crossed the Atlantic in time to celebrate Christmas in sparkling Caribbean waters. Ahpo marks the third collaboration between the German shipyard and design studio Nuvolari Lenard following the 86 metre Quattroelle and 139 metre Nord.
Moon Sand in Germany
The freshly delivered 55.5m Lürssen superyacht Moon Sand has been spotted in Germany days after leaving the UK capital London. Previously known as Project 13800, Moon Sand was designed by UK studio Bannenberg & Rowell and has been kept under tight wraps since construction began.
Dannebrog in Copenhagen
The 83.21 metre Danish Royal yacht Dannebrog has been spotted in Copenhagen harbour. First launched in Copenhagen in 1931 for Queen Alexandrine, wife of King Christian X of Denmark, Dannebrog was built and designed by the Danish Royal Dockyard. Still in service as the country's Royal Yacht, Dannenbrog is operated by nine officers, seven warrant officers and 36 seamen from the Danish Navy.
