Once a year, the most glorious vessels ever floated gather in Port Hercule to the delight of thousands of superyacht fans from around the globe, and the Monaco Yacht Show 2022 is shaping up to deliver that and more. With no less than 100 of the world’s biggest and best superyachts set to descend on the Principality of Monaco from the 28th of September till the 1st of October, we thought would be a good idea to pick out a dozen of our favourite boats that are ready to leave jaws on the floor this year.
At more than 115m in length, the AHPO superyacht will be the largest vessel exhibited at the Monaco Yacht Show this year, meaning it’s sure to have crowds gathered around the marina just to catch a glimpse. Built by the team at Lürssen and designed by the Nuvolari-Lenard studio, the AHPO will be offering guests an insight into methanol reformed hydrogen fuel cell technology, which sits at the heart of this impressive superyacht.
If you’re one who prefers the unmistakable sound of rippling sails in the wind, the 45.3m Blush will get your blood pumping as one of the best performance sailing yachts in the game. When the wind dies down though, its luxurious fit-out will leave guests relaxed and ready for another day on the open ocean.
First launched in 2002 after being constructed by the Royal Huisman boatyards in the Netherlands, the Borkumriff IV is one of the very best in its class as a truly classic example of a sailing yacht. Measuring just over 50.5m in length, its five sails and old-world luxury interior will leave true lovers of sailing ships sweetly satisfied.
Another impressive superyacht born in the Lürssen Yachts yard is the CARINTHIA VII, which measures 97.2m in length and can accommodate 14 guests with a crew of 37. While it’s attending the Monaco Yacht Show to offer enthusiasts a look at its deep blue hull, the CARINTHIA VII is also currently on the market with an asking price of around €95,000,000 (AU$141,418,425).
It might be named after the Beatles’ song, or its owner might just love good friends and great company, but the 60m motor yacht Come Together will have no trouble whatsoever attracting a crowd later this month in Monaco. At 60m in length and painted in a stealthy shade of grey, Come Together has all the amenities you might want, including a tender and parking, beach club, spa, gym and much, much more.
Constructed by the respected German shipyard Abeking & Rasmussen, Soaring stretches more than 68m in length and boasts an interior design by Focus Yacht Design. As a custom design that was only delivered in 2020, Soaring is the leading edge of contemporary superyacht design, complete with guest cabins for up to 12 of your nearest and dearest, expansive deck areas and all of the amenities you could desire. It is also currently up for sale, with an asking price north of €98,000,000 (AU$146,208,440).
Twizzle is another prime example of why the Dutch shipyard Royal Huisman enjoys such a legendary reputation as one of the world’s best builders of sailing yachts. With a trio of main sails and a length of 57.5m, Twizzle is one of the very best in its class after winning the Show Boats Design Awards for the best interior design, as well as the best recreational area.
The 62Steel from the San Lorenzo Alchemist line is a quintessential example of contemporary Italian boatbuilding thanks to its design by the team at Officina Italiana Design. Arriving with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure, the 62Steel can accommodate 12 guests across six staterooms and 14 crew, while its 16-knot cruising speed comes from twin MTU diesel engines.
FB270 M/Y Triumph
As one of Benetti’s most recently delivered superyachts, the FB270 M/Y Triumph is a steel hull and aluminium superstructure vessel that features a truly timeless design and no less than six separate decks. Boasting a palatial owners apartment, 70-square-meter beach club, touch-and-go helipad, spa, sauna and more, this 65.4m superyacht is able to accommodate 12 guests and 15 crew.
First launched in 2022, the Tankoa S501 M/Y Kinda is one of the newest superyachts to be exhibiting at this year’s Monaco Yacht Show, guaranteed to turn heads as one of the best-looking 50m builds we’ve seen in a while. Arriving with a pool integrated neatly into the bow of the vessel, it’s also compellingly fuel-efficient thanks to its hybrid power unit and six different running modes.
The Lusine is another 2022 delivery, with the exterior designed by the team at Omega Architects, while its interiors were another successful project for Sinot Yacht Architecture and Design. The result is an entirely customised 60m motor yacht that draws its power from a pair of MTU engines that deliver a cruising speed of 13 knots and a top speed of 17.5 knots.
Last, but certainly not least, is the Rio superyacht that was built in Italy by the CRN shipyard earlier this year. With a length of 62 meters and room enough for 14 guests and 15 crew, the Rio features a total of four decks across its sporty exterior, which are contained within the steel hull and aluminium superstructure.
