We want to make Boat International the best destination for owners and lovers of superyachts, and we need your help to tell us more about yourselves and what interests you.

Our reader survey covers work, income, interests and hobbies, and most importantly – yacht ownership. We will use your responses to inform the boats we write about, the subjects we cover, and the advertising you will see.

It will take 5-10 minutes to complete. All answers are completely anonymous, and the responses are collected by our research partner, Tapestry.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Top 20 Fastest yachts

1 of 20 1/20

Astro | 50 knots

Built in 2010, Italy

The title of fastest superyacht in the world is a hotly contested one, with yards and owners going to extraordinary lengths to outdo each other.

Astro by Baia Yachts is the first name on our list and her power is immediately recognisable, even when moored up, thanks to a sporty decal on the transom which depicts her triple 2,430hp MTU engines. Refitted in 2015, Astro now features interiors by Milan-based studio Hot Lab.

Length Overall: 31m
Propulsion: Triple diesel engines
Maximum Horsepower: 7,290hp
