With the end of September comes the end of the summer yacht season, marked by the spectacular Monaco Yacht Show where renowned yacht builders from across the world gather to display their latest and greatest luxury yacht builds.
Preliminary attendance has been announced and among the 125 unique superyachts are some of the most impressive and closely guarded builds of 2017: Both sailing yachts and motor yachts will be present at the Port Hercules event, and these top 10 luxury yachts over 30m/98ft are some of the most anticipated in recent years:
1. Andiamo – Baglietto
Of the 350m² living spaces on board, the sundeck comprises an impressive 140m² with an infinity pool, an alfresco dining area serviced by a barbeque grill and bar, plus plenty of forward sunbathing.
The interiors are styled in lacquered ebony and onyx for a truly opulent environment, within which there is a cinema on the upper deck with two side terraces for spectacular views and increased indoor-outdoor flow.
2. Nerissa – Bilgin Yachts
The first hull in the Bilgin 156 series from Bilgin Yachts, superyacht NERISSA has a full-displacement steel hull and aluminium superstructure and was completed following 23 months of construction. This 48m/156ft tri-deck yacht features the naval architecture of Unique Yacht Design and the interior styling talents of H2 Yacht Design.

Following other 60m/196ft luxury yachts SEAHAWK and PERSEUS^3, she is expected to combine the same high performance with Perini Navi quality, efficiency and style. More details on this closely guarded build are expected to be released at the Monaco Yacht Show.
5. Cloud 9 – CRN Shipyard
Launched at the start of 2017, CRN superyacht CLOUD 9 soon after joined the charter market in the Mediterranean where she remains open for the remainder of the summer season. Zuccon created her exterior styling while Winch Design created her bright and airy beach house environment.
At 74m/242ft, this beautifully styled motor yacht has ensured that every space is efficiently used to include as many amenities as possible, and charter guests can expect to find a 12m pool on the main deck, spa therapy facilities, a spacious beach club, a helipad and a wealth of the latest water toys to complement her PADI Dive Centre status.

Attracting attention for more than one reason, Heesen Yachts‘s 50m/164ft is the world’s first Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF) motor yacht with hybrid propulsion.

8. Pink Gin VI – Baltic Yachts
Hailed as the world’s largest carbon fibre sloop, sailing yacht PINK GIN VI will be unmissable at the Monaco Yacht Show with her bright fuchsia sail. The 54m/177ft silvery-white hull is a design by naval architects Judel/Vrolijk and Design Unlimited created her indoor living spaces, which play with texture to create eye-catching details. Among her features are two topside opening balconies, providing a greater connection to the sea and the nearby landscapes.
9. Seven Sins – Sanlorenzo
The new flagship and first in the 52Steel line of superyachts for Sanlorenzo, 52m/171ft motor yacht SEVEN SINS uses shape and texture within her minimalist design to create a sophisticated environment.
