6 of the best superyacht masts


Superyacht masts are where form and function collide, with exterior designers working closely with the technical team to balance satellite communications with the need for smooth styling.

Our round-up starts with the 72.25 metre explorer yacht Cloudbreak. Nothing small belongs on top of this bold Abeking & Rasmussen and the mast structure proves ideal to anchor a crow’s nest for nights under starry skies.

Double Down

Like a Miami moon, a big dome rises over the 65 metre Codecasa superyacht Double Down. Her owner loves the superyacht mast and occasionally projects the logo of his hamburger franchise onto it. Launched in 2010, Double Down’s exterior styling was created by the Italian yard’s in-house team.

Silver Fast

How do you finish off a design as sleek as the 77 metre Silver Fast? Stack the domes and antennae into three compact layers and, in the words of Mick Jagger, have the whole thing painted black. This sleek styling is backed up by Silver Fast’s performance — she tops out at an impressive 27 knots.
