5 of the Largest Megayachts at The Monaco Yacht Show
The French Riviera is known as the best location to scratch your late summer superyacht itch. But the true 200-foot-long and above megayachts don’t showcase itself to be seen by potential buyers until the Monaco Yacht Show later in the month. It’s only appropriate that some of the world’s largest yachts come to show off in the world’s second smallest country that’s synonymous with luxury as Monaco, is a home to the greatest number of millionaires and billionaires per capita in the world. So here’s a glimpse of the over 500 yachts and countless toys (the whole lot; from personal submarines to fully enclosed “limousine tenders” that allow yacht owners to sail without even feeling like you’re on water) that will be showcased between September 28 and October 1.
In 2013, the Solandge was built and launched by the Lurssen shipyard, and it is the largest yacht that will be displayed at the Monaco Yacht Show this year. The interior of this outstanding yacht was designed by Aileen Rodriguez while its exterior was designed by EspenOeino with an offer to true luxury on six extraordinary decks as it was intended to be a home-away-from-home on the high seas.
Solandge is going to be showcased this year again at Monaco after winning the 2014 ‘La Belle ClasseSuperyachts’ Award from the Monaco Yacht Club and ‘Best Exterior’ in the first-ever Monaco Yacht Show Awards. There are a lot of chances that it could still win those same titles this year also.
The Silver Fast is a 252-foot-long yacht also designed by EspenOeino but with a striking new all dark silver paint and it retains the super-sleek style and unique hull lines of her much-prized predecessors.
She’s also designed to be ultra fuel efficient. Only stopping once to refuel, she recently completed a passage from Australia (where the Silver Yachts shipyard is located) to Europe.
This 236-foot-long superyacht exterior profile, also designed by EspenOeino. It has continually received wide acclaims and is ever ready for immediate delivery to a buyer who can afford her approximate 85 million dollar price tag. TheStella Maris provides luxurious accommodations for 14 guests and additional accommodations for 19 crew members. Her range is approximately 5,500 nautical miles with a Top speed is 17 knots.
This 239-foot long superyacht, designed by Omega Architects. She has a luxurious accommodation for 12 guests which is spacious and well-equipped. The accommodation includes a large Owner’s suite on her main deck, two double guest staterooms and two twin guest cabins (each with Pullman beds).
This multi-purpose yacht was built and designed by the Piriou Shipyard to be able to carry out extended, long-distance voyages in extremely harsh weather conditions. It’s classed as a “passenger ship” and has been designed to be a clean and environment-friendly as well. A yacht built for an owner who wants to go on adventures (as well as travel in the lap of luxury) with a range of over 15,000 miles.
