These five cutting-edge examples of luxury yacht building dazzle by their size, design, break-through technology. And, most vividly, by their beauty.

Blue | Lürssen

The 160-meter gigayacht Blue with the capacity of 15,320 register tons came off the slipways of the shipyard Lürssen in Bremen. She takes the fourth place in the top ten largest yachts.

The exterior and interior styling, produced by the studio Terence Disdale Design, is traditional: an elegant sharp profile, a pure luff, a snow-white hull, six decks. There is a large helicopter pad on the foredeck and another, smaller one, is on sky deck, closer to the stern. Spacious leisure areas, where they can relax or have a cocktail party, span the four upper decks while on the stern there is a swim platform attached to a beach club with spazone. The hybrid propulsive system combines the advantages of diesel and electric power plants, saving the fuel. To provide green effects, Blue is equipped with the system of carbon neutralization of gas emission and membrane waste water treatment system. The gigayacht is now cruising about in the Mediterranean.

Come Together | Amels

The luxury charter fleet can boast of an exciting replenishment. This summer, it is adjoined by Come Together, a 60 m long brand-new explorer yacht in the semi-custom series Amels 60 Limited Editions. The exterior styling by Monaco based company Espen Øino International, which is considered by right to be one of the leaders in luxury yacht building design, reveals inference to trawlers and military aesthetics but the interplay never loses its focus on the functionality of the boat — that is a villa on water, conceptualized by the developers. The color scheme comes to be very unusual: the steel hull hue is Pebble Grey, the aluminum superstructure is painted subdued Matterhorn White and Super Jet Black. The 27-meter sundeck features a solarium, a dining-table, a bar, a swimming pool and a helipad touch and go. The hybrid power plant facilitates Come Together to gain 15,5 knot maximum speed. There are six luxury staterooms (including Owners Suite with the impressive 7 m2 folding balcony) and the accommodation for 13 crew members on board. The interior, designed by the English studio Winch Design, arouses the feeling of peaceful serene family life in a house on the beach. The first charter season of this yacht in the Mediterranean was sold out almost instantaneously.

Path | Baltic Yachts

“Path” in the name of the 44.6-meter vessel Baltic 146 project denotes “a way, a road” and in technology Path has really made her own special way: it has the largest solar battery system ever installed on sailing vessels, with the battery area of 60 m2, covering the superstructure totally. Their daily output is 30-50 kWh, providing for all the systems on board. So being equipped with an eight cylinder diesel engine Scania the yacht got the highest international certification as the first vessel of the shipping yard Baltic Yachts, meeting “green standards” of IMO Tier III.


The owner of Path plans to make around-the-world cruise but there is no need of a big crew: the designers from Judel & Vrolijk engineered the sloop rig so as to ensure saving effort on managing the sails. Nevertheless, 3 fixed forestays and a short take-off bowsprit make precise control of the sails efficient. The designed speed of the yacht is 11-16 knots but she makes it 20 knots easily and excels even in a 35 knot stormy wind. Path has four guest cabins and four cabins for the crew. The master suite is located amid ship with its own lounge and a walk-in closet. The main saloon of the yacht can be transformed into a movie hall: the owner calls the gigantic view screen, 2.7 m long, a “videowall”.

Infinity | Oceanco

The 117-meter Infinity on gala delivery to the customer in May 2022 broke two records: she is now the new flagship of the shipyard Oceanco and the largest yacht ever built in the Netherlands.

The elegant exterior styling of the vessel is created by the Norwegian naval architect and designer Espen Øino. Every of the seven decks astern on Infinity is designed as an airy terrace with spacious bar lounges and dining areas, open-air cinema, and a yoga studio. The second and the upper decks are equipped with and open-air jacuzzi and on the main deck there is a six-meter swimming pool with a counter-flow current. The two main staircases lead to a swim platform, adjoined to a water toy garage and a wellness zone with a sauna, spa, a gym. The interior design is developed by the companies Sinot Yacht Architecture & Design and David Kleinberg Design Associates in “luxury modest” style. It is simple, at first sight, but ergonomically adjusted down to the millimeter and these forms will never lose relevance in years to come. The yacht has accommodations for 16 guests and 43 crew members. Her top speed is 18 knots.

AB 100 Superfast | AB Yachts

AB 100 Superfast got the World Yachts Trophies award for “the best exterior design” at Cannes Yachting Festival in 2021 The 30.5 meter long model looks like a speedboat and will never cede to it in speed characteristics with the top speed of 60 knots! It is a robust super yacht; no vessel of the same size can sail the same way as if flying on the sea. What’s the secret? To develop its ultra-light hulls the shipping yard AB Yachts collaborates with companies that produce composite materials for aerospace industry.

Specification data strengthens similarity with a plane: three MTU 16V 2000 M96L engines, with 2600 horsepower each, churn out an astounding power output, even in a moderate cruising regime AB 100 Superfast boosts the speed of 45 knots. The accommodation on board features four guest suites and two cabins for four crew members. The interior comes in a modular configuration which allows every customer to participate, essentially, in its designing and organize the space on board out of preference. For instance, a sliding jib door between the main saloon and the cockpit creates efficiently common space, spanning from the stern to the windscreen.
