Written by Maria Korotaeva

There has been an incredible variety of superyachts launched over the past 12 months and each shipyard has made technological advances to provide ever better facilities, comfort, performance and style.

Not all of these luxury yachts are to be used exclusively by the owner and many are available for charter in tip-top condition mere months following their delivery. For an adventure holiday packed with the latest water toys, a sailing yacht to host a special occasion or your own private accommodation and transport with a sundeck Jacuzzi to soak in the views, there is a brand new charter yacht over 40m/131ft to meet your satisfaction.

 

Here Comes the Sun

Built by Amels with exterior styling from Tim Heywood and interiors by Andrew Winch, 83m/272ft luxury yacht HERE COMES THE SUN is a winning combination of beauty and performance from three prestigious names.

The main salon contains a grand piano for live entertainment while your group dines, or guests can choose from one of several alfresco dining options where the sound of the waves creates the ambiance.
