Written by Maria Korotaeva

In an age when technology is rapidly advancing year upon year, it can be difficult for a superyacht to claim to have ‘the latest gadgets’ or ‘cutting-edge technology’ even a couple of seasons after first entering the charter market. Yet there are luxury yachts that stand the test of time and remain as popular as the day they were launched thanks to a reputation for countless amenities, unusual onboard features or even for visiting uncommon charter grounds with the best water toys selection around.

As we bid goodbye to 2017, let’s take a look back at some of the year’s most luxurious superyachts, where a week aboard could be the ultimate Christmas or New Year’s present to your family and friends.
