When it comes to being able to get up close and personal with some of the world’s largest superyachts, there is 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 learned how easy and amazing escaping on a yacht (while socially distancing with family and friends) can be—the line-up of EXTREMELY large yachts at this year’s Monaco Yacht Show is more impressive than ever.
None is larger than the 377-foot-long AHPO. But that’s only the beginning.
Prior to its official launch, the rumor was that the 376-foot-long superyacht code named “Project Enzo” was built by Lurssen to pay homage to Enzo Ferrari. And you could say that Italian superyacht designers Nuvolari–Lenard appear to have captured the essence of the LaFerrari supercar in the design. But now that AHPO will be the largest yacht in this year’s show, visitors will be able to see it for themselves. And they will also get a chance to learn about all the innovations and Lürssen is working on including a virtual tour of the company’s Innovation Lab and a unique model explaining how a fuel cell technology works.
PHOENIX II, the stunning, nearly 300-foot long superyacht designed by Winch Design and built by the German superyacht experts at Lurssen Shipyard was not the first yacht that the two companies worked together on. In fact, the owner was so happy with his original yacht that the teams at Winch and Lurssen were not surprised when the new yacht called for a opulent Art Deco inspired interior. But unlike the original that 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 bigger and bolder than its smaller predecessor. It’s being displayed at this year’s show by Burgess
HERE COMES THE SUN
HERE COMES THE SUN has been at the head of the Amels fleet since her original delivery in 2017. And after returning to Damen Yachting for a large 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 now measures 291 feet-long and features significant layout modifications, including larger beach club & 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 be displaying the 289-foot-long Project X at this year’s show. It features an exterior design by Ken Freivokh and interior design by Massari Design Studio.
Built by Abeking & Rasmussen and designed by Reymond Langton, the 281-foot-long B2 is second largest yacht this German superyacht shipyard has built. And it’s fresh from an interior refit that was designed by Winch Design and completed in July.
