With the London and Monaco Yacht Shows coming up, wealthy buyers are lining up to catch a glimpse of the newest nautical toys that manufacturers have to offer. There is a whole new array of striking superyachts that will get even the most sophisticated yacht connoisseur excited.
The Royal Huisman’s 190-Foot Sailing Yacht is a 190-foot sailing beauty that is as efficient as it is eye-catching. The resulting design features a slender hull, a 233-foot mast, and twin helm stations that tower above the rest of the body. Exterior accoutrements include a tender garage, an expansive beach deck, a swim platform, and a sunbed. The eclectic, exotic interior features a master apartment, gym, sauna, study, library, and two guest staterooms. The yacht is scheduled to start sailing the seas after a springtime delivery.
Lürssen’s 403-Foot Jupiter is a sporty, aggressive cruiser. London-based design firm March & White was commissioned for the awe-inspiring interior. Large glass windows allow natural light to flood into the arched atrium and allow guests to glimpse panoramic views of the ocean outside. The yacht will be delivered early this year.
Then there’s the Nobiskrug’s 468-Foot Sailing Yacht A, which is true sea monster. Marketed as the largest vessel in the world to be powered by sail, some of its spectacular features include a steel hull with a composite superstructure, eight decks dressed in teak, and three carbon-fiber masts, each about 300 feet tall. The yacht has a reported price of approximately $318 million and is expected to take delivery of his latest aquatic acquisition in the spring of 2017.
