New superyachts making debut at the Monaco Yacht Show

The Monaco Yacht Show returns on Wednesday, with pent-up demand among owners and builders after a year of either canceled or smaller boat shows. The event has been modified this year into a more exclusive format aimed at connecting buyers and builders, but the show will still have 80 superyachts in the water, including 32 launches, with a total of 350 exhibitors. Here’s a preview of seven great yachts making their public debuts.

Feadship ‘Viva’ (308 Feet)

The latest custom delivery from Dutch shipyard Feadship, and the show’s largest global premiere, centers around sustainability. The hybrid propulsion system requested by the owner will allow 308-foot Viva to travel at a comfortable 12 knots on diesel-electric power, with much lower fuel consumption and emissions. A key exterior feature from designers Studio De Voogt and Azure are three tiers of wraparound glass on the superstructure, providing clear lines of sight from anywhere on board.

Baltic 146 ‘Path’ (146 Feet)

This 146-foot sloop by Baltic Yachts is designed for both circumnavigating the globe and competitive racing. The third-largest yacht by volume from the Finnish shipyard was commissioned by an owner with “global ambitions,” who plans to travel the world in style. His plans will be facilitated by Path’s advanced composite construction, complemented by a lifting keel, twin rudders and beautiful interior, with a large salon, accommodations for 18 and full-beam owner’s suite.

Heesen ‘Moskito’ (180 Feet)

If you’d like to try fuel-efficient cruising in balmy Bahamian waters, then Heesen’s 180-foot Moskito is the new-build yacht to charter. A fast displacement hull form (FDHF) designed by Van Oossanen Naval Architects means the steel-hulled, IMO-tier III compliant yacht is able to reach speeds of 15.5 knots, but have a range of 4,500 nautical miles at 13 knots. Moskito’s large interior volume of 760 gross tons includes an 883-square-foot master suite, full-beam sky lounge and main salon. A lower-deck spa is just a few steps from the ocean.

Rossinavi 'Polaris'

Rossinavi ‘Polaris’ (230 Feet)

Polaris is a boat with intent. The steel-hulled 230-foot hybrid design is Italian shipyard Rossinavi’s largest yacht yet, readied for extreme polar regions and transatlantic adventure, but with a more contemporary profile than traditional explorer yachts. She’s set to travel with flair, too, thanks to two waterfalls (one on the owner’s private terrace), a soundproof cinema and huge wellness center.

Damen 'Time Off'

Damen ‘Time Off’ (182 Feet)

If ever there was a yacht support vessel suited to James Bond, it’s Time Off. The seriously stylish 182-footer—the ninth hull in Damen’s YS 5009 182-foot shadow vessel series—has a large multipurpose main deck hangar designed with submersible, dive operations and vehicle garage (for that all-important Aston Martin). A new accommodation layout welcomes seven guests, four staff, plus crew and technical upgrades for the ultimate package.

Sanlorenzo 500EXP (155 Feet)

Sanlorenzo’s 155-foot 500EXP is all about the aft deck. This evolution of the smaller 460EXP has enough space to land a small helicopter and carry a considerable amount of water toys, including a three-person submersible, for an extra thrill factor. Dropdown balconies extend the already significant beach club, creating a continuous space for close-to-the-water action.

Nautor’s Swan Swan120 (120 Feet)

The Swan120 is a bluewater sailing yacht with the performance to ignite interest from seasoned sailors and the space typically found on motoryachts. This is epitomized by the large dropdown teak-decked swim platform with a garage large enough to hold a 15-foot tender plus water toys. The 120-foot maxi’s exterior was designed by German Frers and features a nautical-inspired interior by Italian architect Misa Poggi.
