Looking back: Top luxury charter yachts launched in 2017 under 40m

December 15, 2017

Written by Maria Korotaeva

Each year the charter world welcomes brand new luxury yachts to the market and vessels under 40m/131ft are by far the most common additions.

As a result, not all of these luxury yachts receive the attention they deserve, so this list is to celebrate the outstanding launches from 2017 – and these beautiful and unique charter options from respected shipbuilders highlight that you don’t need to spend the family fortune for a lavish week away from the office.

Aqua Libra 131

Not to be confused with the 28m/92ft 2012 AQUA LIBRA also from Sunseeker, 40m/132ft AQUA LIBRA 131 will be entering the charter market in 2018 and shows the British shipyard’s dedication to keeping up with the competition from the world’s leading superyacht builders. Following the styling of sistership JACOZAMI, her interiors and exteriors will be styled by the Sunseeker in-house team and guests will be treated to floor-to-ceiling windows and evocative relaxation areas that use dark, high gloss wood for the optical illusion of double the space.
