It has been a very busy start of the year at the leading shipyards with quite a few significant superyacht launches. Ranging between 67m and 100m+ these stunning luxury vessels have already turned heads at the largest ports:

Benetti FB275 – 108m

The largest superyacht launched in 2019 so far is the 108m luxury motor yacht FB272 built by Benetti. Her elegant exterior profile is by RWD and the contemporary interior is by Benetti’s in-house team. As usual with yachts of over 100 metres, lots of details still remain undisclosed.


Notable features: exterior living spaces spread across 1,000 sqm, 1.5m firepit, massive tender garage, heated swimming pool, gym.

Benetti FB272 – 105m

Benetti FB272 is a 105-metre giga yacht built by the Italian shipyard featuring design ideas suggested by her experienced owner. Her unique design profile was created by Azure Naval Architects and refined by Giorgio M Cassetta. Very few details about the interior design are available at this stage, however, the shipyard released information about the team of talented designers who were involved in the build: they were Reymond Langton Design and Zaniz Jakubowski of Zaniz Interiors.

The 95m superyacht Madsummer (ex Project FIJI) was launched in March at Lurssen shipyard facility in Rendsburg, Germany.

She has already managed to draw a lot of attention, and there is no wonder, as she was designed by Michael Leach and features modern interior styling by Reymond Langton Design. LADY S is available for charter this coming summer in the Mediterranean and can accommodate 12 guests and 29 crew members.

Launched during a private ceremony in Italy, superyacht CRN 135 is a stunning vessel designed by Zuccon International Project. CRN’s long-time partner Laura Sessa worked on the interior styling, which boasts an abundance of natural light coming from the large windows creating a light and airy atmosphere.


Although very few details have been revealed at this stage, we know that some of her amazing features include luxurious amenities spread across five decks and a substantial crew of 39 professionals.


Yet another 2019 luxury superyacht evolved from the work of the fantastic team of famous designers: Tim Heywood and Andrew Winch worked on AMELS AURORA BOREALIS‘s exterior and interior design respectively. She is currently on the market with the asking price of €87,500,000 and very few details of her interior have been released to the public. Her new owners will be able to bring their friends and family on board for an amazing cruising vacation in great comfort. The yacht offers accommodation for up to 14 guests across 7 staterooms.


Massive sundeck Jacuzzi for seven people, spacious beach club, swim platform with swim ladder and helipad are only some of her fantastic features.
