When it comes to being able to get up close and personal with some of the biggest superyachts in the world, there’s nothing quite like the Monaco Yacht Show. And now that we’ve finally emerged from the darkest days of pandemic lockdowns – and many new people have seen how easy and amazing it can be to escape on a yacht (while social distancing with family and friends) – the EXTREMELY wide range of yachts at this year’s Monaco Yacht Show is more impressive than ever.
None are larger than the 377-foot-long AHPO. But this is only the beginning.
Prior to its official launch, it was rumored that the 376-foot-long superyacht codenamed “Project Enzo” was built by Lurssen to pay homage to Enzo Ferrari. And you could say that Italian superyacht designers Nuvolari-Lenard seem to have captured the essence of the LaFerrari supercar in the design. But now that the AHPO will be the largest yacht at this year’s show, visitors will be able to see it for themselves. And they will also have the opportunity to discover all the innovations that Lürssen is working on, including a virtual tour of the company’s innovation laboratory and a unique model explaining how a fuel cell technology works.
PHOENIX II, the stunning nearly 300ft long superyacht designed by Winch Design and built by German superyacht experts Lurssen Shipyard was not the first yacht the two companies have worked on together. In fact, the owner was so pleased with his original yacht that the teams at Winch and Lurssen were not surprised when the new yacht requested an opulent Art Deco-inspired interior. But unlike the original which was inspired by the French Art Deco style, Phoenix II embraces the unique Art Deco style of New York (the Chrysler Building, Radio City Music Hall, Broadway, etc.) in addition to being significantly more bigger and bolder than its smaller predecessor. It is presented at this year’s show by Burgess
HERE IS THE SUN
HERE COMES THE SUN has been at the helm of the Amels fleet since her initial delivery in 2017. And after returning to Damen Yachting for a full-scale rebuild and hull extension to better meet the new owner’s requirements, the yacht is even bigger and better than before. HERE COMES THE SUN is now 291 feet long and features significant layout changes, including larger beach club and spa facilities, and the ability to land a helicopter on the sun deck and a brand new paint job.
Greek luxury yacht builder Golden Yachts will showcase the 289-foot-long Project X at this year’s show. It features exterior design by Ken Freivokh and interior design by Massari Design Studio.
Built by Abeking & Rasmussen and designed by Reymond Langton, the 281ft long B2 is the second largest yacht this German superyacht yard has built. And it’s fresh from an interior refit that was designed by Winch Design and completed in July.
