Blue is the coolest colour: The best superyachts with blue hulls

1/5

Aviva

The large majority of superyachts out there have white hulls, but there are the daring few that have gone with a more colourful exterior. Blue is a fitting choice for a craft that will float upon the deep blue sea, and here are a few of the best blue hull superyachts out there today.

Aviva, launched by Abeking & Rasmussen in 2017, has been lauded for her many innovative features, including the tennis court found inside. But one cannot overlook her gorgeous azure blue paint job.

Far more impressive than her hull colour, though, is the hull design – Aviva has a nipped in “waist” which bulges back out below the waterline. This is designed to both slows and softens the roll, while the near-vertical bow and narrow sailboat-like stern helps reduce pitching and also aids efficiency.

Go

Go hasn't even left the yard yet at Turquoise Yachts in Turkey, but she's already turning heads. The 77 metre is the flagship yacht from the builder, featuring design by H2 Yacht Design of London. Her stunning cerulean hull colour will be sure to make Go stand out wherever she, well, goes.

Go is due to be delivered by the end of the 2018, and she boasts plenty of pools and connection to the water, which complements her hull colour, such as a five-metre swimming pool on the aft deck, a private spa pool on the dedicated owner's deck and a superyacht beach club that measures 162 metres square.

Madame Gu

The interiors of the top-secret Feadship Madame Gu were never publicly revealed, but there is no missing her cornflower blue hull. She is designed inside and out by Winch Design with Feadship De Voogt Naval Architects developing the naval architecture

With a unique exterior profile, beautiful blue hull and high speeds, she is lovely to watch on the water. Madame Gu can reach top speeds of 24 knots.

Arados

Originally launched as Blush for yacht owner and Boat International contributor Eddie Jordan, this 47 metre Sunseeker has a pretty, pale sky-blue hull. Though Jordan sold the boat and she's undergone an impressive interior refit to become Arados, the new owners have maintained the bewitching hull colour, which sets her apart from other white hull vessels.

The real story behind the hull goes more than skin deep: the hull and superstructure are created by MouldCAM in Australia using direct tooling – with 64 pieces for the hull, and 300 pieces for the hull and superstructure combined – and shipped to the build yard in the UK.

Sunrays

One of the original big superyachts to brandish a blue hull is the teal-blue Oceanco Sunrays. The 85.5 metre yacht has a striking hull colour that you can spot in any harbour. When she was launched, before all the other yachts on this list in 2010, it was a colour that certainly made her stand out.

She was designed by Bjorn Johansson with Azure Naval Architects developing the naval architecture, and the interior design was created by Terence DisdaleSunrays boasts an impressive cruising range of 5,500 nautical miles at 16 knots powered by twin 4,680hp MTU 16V595 TE70 diesel engines, so she can roam far and wide.
