In terms of numbers of craft, the Monaco Yacht Show is not the biggest show on earth, but for anyone interested in big yachts—or the toys they tote—this is a must. Because of its location in Port Hercules, surrounded by the golden metropolis clinging to hillsides, the show can only welcome so many yachts.

But with resources and ingenuity, organizers manage to fit in quite a few—100 this year—plus 25 tenders. A sneak preview of what may be at this year’s event got us really excited. Just look through our pages: cover girl Carpe Diem, the Amels 212 Imagine, Danish Yachts Shooting Star—they will all be there. By mid-July, an estimated 100 new yachts with a length of 90 feet or more had their first taste of water so far this year, following a busy 2010. A select few are previewed in the following pages. It promises to be quite a show, if not the beginning of a new golden era. This year’s Monaco Yacht Show is September 21 to 24. For more information, visit monacoyachtshow.com.

❱❱ Oceanco Seven Seas Azure Naval architects, project manager Wright Maritime, designers Nuvolari-Lenard (exterior) and Molly Isaksen (interior) worked closely with Oceanco on its most recent delivery, the 282-foot Seven Seas. Her styling reprises what nearly equates to an Oceanco trademark: an infinity pool that doubles as a helipad. This pool, however, also has a glass wall that, in conjunction with a special projector, also serves as a screen for viewing movies from the water or the dock. Six cabins plus owners’ suite on a private deck accommodate 12 guests, who can also enjoy movie night in the salon, equipped with professional projection equipment, or wander off on the yacht’s two tenders.

LOA: 282ft. 2in. (86m) Beam: 46ft. 6in. (14.20m) Draft: 7ft. 8in. (2.35m) Engines 2 x 4,680-hp MTU 16V 595 TE Speed (max.): 20 knots

❱❱ Derecktor Cakewalk If you missed her in Fort Lauderdale last year, here is an opportunity to catch up with one of the most talked-about yachts of 2010. Tim Heywood design on the outside, an interior by American designer Liz Dalton of Dalton Designs Inc. and a slew of other A-list companies collaborated on what was touted to be the largest yacht built in America in decades. Six decks plus a tank deck accommodate huge entertainment spaces, luxurious staterooms and extra-wide promenade decks. The sprawling garage with side tender doors was built for the owner’s custom tenders. See the March/April edition of Yachts International for a full article.

LOA: 281ft. (85.6m) Beam: 46ft. 11in. (14.30m) Draft: 13ft. 11in. (4m) Engines: 2 x MTU 16V 4000 M71 @ 3,306hp Speed (max.): 17 knots Speed (cruising): 15 knots

❱❱ Freire Shipyard Pegaso Located in Vigo, Spain, the Freire Shipyard specializes in commercial shipbuilding (tugs, fishing boats, patrol vessels, etc.). Little wonder, then, that this recently launched expedition-style vessel managed to avoid scrutiny for months. H2 Design and Mark Berryman collaborated on the design of this steel-hulled bluewater vessel born in Galicia. Pegaso was designed to cruise all around the world. This serious expedition yacht has a helipad and room for a submarine. Perhaps most amazing of all, she is said to have a range of 10,000 nm.

LOA: 241ft. (73.6m) Beam: 43ft. (13.2m) Draft: 12ft. (3.8m) Engines: 2 x 3,149-hp Caterpillar speed (cruising): 17 knots 

❱❱ Proteksan TURQuoise Talisman C Proteksan launched the 231-foot Talisman C last spring, the largest yacht the Turkish shipyard has delivered to date. We had a sneak preview at what promises to be a great yacht for owners’ use as well as charter (if she follows her predecessor, a 174-foot Proteksan available for charter). H2 Yacht Design styled the earlier yacht and the owners retained the firm again to design her larger sistership. The London-based design company styled the new Talisman C and gave her a sophisticated Art Deco-inspired interior. The owner’s suite occupies about one third of the main deck and features a spectacular bathroom with great split-level design. A central staircase draws light from the skylight to the lower-deck lobby. A large tender garage accommodates tenders and toys.

LOA: 231ft. 6in. (70.54m) Beam: 40ft. 2in. (12.23m) Draft: 12ft. 10in. (3.95m) Engines: 2 x 2,447-bhp Speed (max.): 17 knots Speed (cruising): 15 knots Range @ 14 knots: 4,000 nm

❱❱ Rossinavi Numptia This all-Italian yacht was built in Viareggio, in many respects Italy’s yacht capital. This large and beautiful yacht is another great step for the relatively young Rossinavi shipyard. The yacht owes her stylish lines to Studio Spadolini. Interior designer Achille Salvagni, drawing inspiration from nature, used natural fabrics, a variety of woods from ebony to subtly bleached teak, plus glass, stone and metal to create an innovative interior. Axis Group Yacht Design did the naval architecture of this impressive hull with a long-range cruise of more than 7,000 nautical miles. The five decks include an appropriately named spa deck plus a 13-foot-long infinity pool.

LOA: 229ft. 8in. (70m) Beam: 43ft. 3in. (13.2m) Draft: 11ft. 2in. (3.4m) Engines: 2 x 3,383-hp Caterpillar 3516B Speed (max.): 18.6 knots Speed (cruising): 16 knots

❱❱ Abeking & Rasmussen Kaiser The latest delivery in A+R’s 60-meter yacht series has a distinct personality but shares similar qualities with sistership Elandess. Like her, Kaiser (or Emperor) owes her styling to Donald Starkey and interior to Bannenberg & Rowell. These two yachts also share solid engineering and construction, qualities that attracted the owner to the German shipyard, which delivered her to her owners, in the shipyard’s words, “exactly on time.” Exacting work from onsite interior fabricator Rodiek translated the designers’ and owners’ vision into reality. The steel-hulled yacht is built to Lloyd’s class.

LOA: 197 ft. (60m) Beam: 35 ft. 2in. (10.7m) Draft: 10ft. 8in. (3.5m) Engines 2 x CAT 3516B Speed (max.): 16 knots Speed (cruising): 14 knots Range (max.): 4,000 nm

❱❱ CRN Darlings danama Darlings Danama is the latest yacht in CRN’s 60-meter series. Zuccon International Project has designed this series, which is built in steel and aluminum. This yacht features a pleasantly bright and light contemporary interior by architects Alexandre and Cristina Negoescu. A glass elevator allows guests to easily move in between four decks. In addition to a private master suite on the main deck, the yacht features a VIP suite with great views on the upper deck and four lower-deck cabins. This arrangement is well suited for charter, and the yacht was expected to make her debut on the charter market this summer. CRN, based in Ancona, Italy, is the part of the Ferretti Group.

LOA: 195ft. 2in. (59.5m) Beam (molded): 36ft. 6in. (10.2m) Draft: 9ft. 10in. (3m): Engines: 2 x 1,570-hp Caterpillar 3512B Speed (max.): 15 knots Speed (cruising): 14 knots

❱❱ Picchiotti Galileo G This is the second in the newly introduced Vitruvius series built by the Perini Navi Group’s Picchiotti yard. Naval architect Philippe Briand, drawing inspiration from sailboats, favors long lines and a narrow beam in its “Briand Optimized Stretched Hull,” first seen on Exuma. This much larger Vitruvius was built to ice class, allowing her owners to cruise from the Pacific to the Atlantic through the Arctic Ocean. We saw the vessel in the late stages of construction before her late-July launch. Extra-thick steel plates were used for the hull; the aft deck is built for cold weather and a single huge radar dome tops the boat, allowing the explorer to stay in touch even in hard-to-reach places. The interior is on the classic side with beautiful dark veneer.

LOA: 183 ft. (55.7m) Beam: 34ft. in. (10.39m) Draft: 10ft. 6in. (3.2m) Engines: 2 x CAT 3512 C Speed (max.): 16 knots range @ 11 knots: 9,000 nm

❱❱ Columbus 177 Prima Columbus Yacht debuts in Monaco with Prima, the company’s appropriately named first yacht. Sergio Cutolo (Hydro Tec Naval Architecture) and Tommaso Spadolini (interior) designed this full-displacement yacht with steel hull and aluminum superstructure. The MCA- and RINA-classed yacht was built in compliance with ABS rules and is suitable for unrestricted navigation. A large sun deck with Jacuzzi is one of several al fresco options. Six comfortable cabins include a full-beam owners’ stateroom with balcony. The attractive décor, blending classic and modern elements, is neutral enough for owners to add their personal touch. A second vessel, a 160-footer, is currently under construction at the Palumbo Group’s shipyard in Naples.

LOA: 176ft. 3in. (53.40m) Beam: 33ft. 5in. (10.20m) Draft: 7ft. 8in. (2.35m) Engines 2 x 3,384-hp Caterpillar 3516B Speed (max.): 21 knots Speed (cruising): 17 knots

❱❱ ISA 500 Papi du Papi Celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, ISA is presenting a 164-foot yacht designed by Andrea Vallicelli with interiors by Francesco Paszkowski. It is one of three 50-meter steel-hulled yachts that were under construction simultaneously at ISA, whose naval architects and engineers developed the platform. While the three yachts have common technical features, they are vastly different in appearance inside and out. For a tri-deck yacht with a nearly 30-foot beam, Papi du Papi boasts a sleek and dynamic silhouette. The design includes two dramatic stairways leading to the beach platform, which connects to the interior through curved glass doors. The yacht includes six spacious staterooms.

LOA: 163ft. 10in. (49.95m) Beam: 29ft. 6in. (9m) Draft: 8ft. 2in. (2.50m) Engines: 2 x CAT 3512C DITA SCAC Speed (max.): 16 knots Speed (cruising): 15 knots

❱❱ Mondo Marine Zaliv III The 162-foot Zaliv III, with exterior styling by Giorgio Vafiadis and refined, modern interiors by Luca Dini, is a new showpiece for the Northern Italian shipyard, which specializes in metal construction. Designed to suit the needs of a large family, this all-aluminum yacht’s layout features two master suites—including a large one with an office—on the upper deck, plus four lower-deck guests cabins. A fifth cabin on the bridge deck can be used by the captain or as an extra guest cabin. Teak and holly floors, leathers, linen and cotton upholsteries create a relaxed ambiance. Zaliv III, powered by twin MTU 16V 4000 M90 engines, can reach a top speed of 22 knots and has transatlantic range at 12 knots.

LOA: 161ft. 10in. (49.36m) Beam: 29ft. 6in. (9m) Draft (full load): 8ft. 6in. (2.6m) Engines 2 x 3,650-hp MTU 16V 4000 M90 Speed (max.): 22 knots Speed (cruising): 20 knots

❱❱ Heesen Satori Satori, a stunning new all-aluminum semi-displacement Heesen, boasts sleek exterior styling by Omega and an ultra-modern interior design by Rémi Tessier, including his signature collection of sofas, tables and chairs. The main salon features a backlit white onyx bar and a rotating curved sofa. The curved interior walls have a Palladium leaf surface and ebony privacy panels. The atrium staircase between floors is an absolute showstopper. In addition to her super-large, super-Zen master cabin, she has two VIP cabins and two twin cabins. Speedy and under 500 gross tons, she is classed ABS+1 and AMS MCA LY2 compliant.

LOA: 163ft. 4in. (49.8m) Beam: 29ft. 7in. (9m) Draft (full load): 8ft. 8in. (2.65m) Engines: 2 x MTU 16V 4000 M90 Speed (max. at half load): 24 knots range @ 12 knots: 3,000 nm

❱❱ Soraya 46 This new yacht from a new shipyard combines heretofore little-known talents—young designer Jure Bukavec from Slovenian design firm Uniellé and interior designer Alès Bratina—with a roster of A-list names as far as systems and machinery is concerned. A widebody design creates exceptional volume inside. Clutter-free decks hide everything from tenders to safety rafts. A touch-and-go helipad is, unusually, located on the bow and a large beach club opens at the transom. An integrated electronics system feeds into a high-tech aircraft-style bridge. Soraya’s parent company, Gentech Ltd., has built the full-displacement steel yacht, which has transatlantic range, in accordance with MCA and RINA rules.

LOA: 153ft. (46.6m) Beam: 30ft. (9.1m) Draft: 8 ft. (2.45m) Fuel capacity: 17,629 gal. (66,726L) Engines: 2 x 1,300-hp Caterpillar C32 ACERT Speed (max.): 16 knots Speed (cruising): 12 knots

❱❱ Sanlorenzo 46 Steel Rêve d’Or Sanlorenzo will exhibit Hull No. 3 of its series in steel, Rêve d’Or. The 46 Steel, a steel displacement tri-deck with aluminum superstructure, is the flagship of Sanlorenzo’s fleet. Lammouche, Hull No. 1, was introduced in Monaco last year. These yachts have custom interiors that give them individuality. However, all of them have a beach club and fitness area opening onto a huge bathing platform and generous deck spaces. On the operations side, other highlights include a tunnel accessing systems and a service area, transatlantic range and a top speed of about 17 knots. She is just below 500 gross tons.

LOA: 150ft. 11in. (46m) Beam: 30ft. 6in. (9.3m) Draft: 8ft. 6in. (2.6m) Engines: 2 x 2,040-mHP CAT 3512B Speed (max.): 17 knots Speed (cruising): 15 knots Range @ 12 knots: 4,000 nm

❱❱ Pendennis Hemisphere The charter market has seen a growth in the large catamaran segment in the last few years. But this one, a sail catamaran with naval architecture by French naval architects and multihull specialists Van Peteghem Lauriot Prévost (VPLP), at 145 feet and 500 gross tons, will be the largest luxury sailing catamaran available on the charter market, according to Burgess. With a mast soaring to 190 feet, it will have an imposing presence. Yet, for aesthetics as well as ease of use, decks have been designed to be clutter-free. Interior design is by Michael Leach Design. The interpretation of luxury on this catamaran is said to be comfort over glitz. A crew of eight will cater to 12 guests, accommodated in five cabins.

LOA: 145ft. (44.2m) Beam: 54ft. 6in. (16.6m) Draft: 10ft. 8in. (3.25m) Speed (cruising): 13 knots under power

❱❱ Sunreef 114 Che Polish builder Sunreef Yachts has built its reputation with its growing line of sail- and power-cats. Many are available on the charter market, where the spacious interior and stability at anchor—thanks to the catamaran-hull configuration—are much appreciated by vacationing guests. Che, a sailing catamaran with a 42-foot beam, is currently the largest yacht in the Sunreef fleet. The owners created the relaxed interior using bamboo and pleasing shades of blue. The galley opens onto the salon, making a nice hub for entertainment. Four guest cabins accommodate seven. Built in aluminum with a carbon mast, Che cruises effortlessly under sail or power, with a range of 2,400 nautical miles at 11 knots.

LOA: 114ft. (34m) Beam: 42ft. (12.8m) Draft: 8ft. 3in. (2.5m) Engines: 2 x 455-hp Cummins Speed (under sail): 12 to 20 knots Speed (under power): 11 to 14 knots

❱❱ Vicem 100 Cruiser It is, by far, the largest yacht yet in Vicem’s Vintage series, built in mahogany and epoxy using cold-molded construction. It features a large flybridge and a roomy interior with five spacious cabins in the standard layout, which also includes a large U-shaped Gaggenau galley. A relatively small draft makes the yacht well suited to Caribbean or Mediterranean coastal cruising. Do not let this classic-looking yacht deceive you. She is rather speedy, with a 21-knot top speed and cruising speed of 17 knots. Equipped with a nice-size crew area and built to RINA certification, this yacht could do well in the charter market.

LOA: 106ft. 7in. (32.5m) Beam: 23ft. 11in. (7.28m) Draft: 6ft. 3in. (1.9m): Engines: 2 x CAT C32 1,550hp Speed (max.): 21 knots Speed (cruising): 17 knots

❱❱ Oyster 100 sarafin Sarafin is the first of a series of large sailing yachts that Oyster is building at the RMK shipyard in Turkey. RMK set up an entire building with a large curing oven to handle these large composite hulls at its facility in Tuzla. Extensive testing and surveys during the construction ensured the yacht complies with stringent class requirements (Lloyd’s 100 A1). The sleek exterior is by Dubois Naval Architects. The interior, built as light as possible, is on the contemporary side—there is a choice of veneer as well as layout.

LOA: 101ft. (30.8m) Beam: 24ft. 10in. (7.57m) Draft HPB keel: 12ft. 10in. (3.9m) Engine (standard): 355-hp Cummins QSM11, C rated Sail area (full): 5,307 sq. ft.
