From the beautiful yawl Bequia, which at 90 feet is the largest vessel to emerge from Maine's distinguished Brooklin Boat Yard, to the 257 Lurssen motor yacht, Madsummer, the scope of megayachts within these pages is testament to the new trends in cutting edge design, styling, and construction methods. Global cruising is the raison d'etre of several of our showcase yachts including the extraordinary Silver Cloud, which has been build on the revolutionary SWATH hull design platform. The private retreat of actor Johnny Depp and his family, the 156ft Vajoliroja boasts the most sumptuous and creative interior we've ever presented. The interior of the 164ft Man Of Steel is another creative masterpiece, incorporating staterooms with so many amenities, one might never need to leave. American custom builder Burger has two yachts that made our selection this year - the voluminous 101ft fantail cruiser Sycara IV. The breadth of these two vessels alone are proof of this Wisconsin based builder's prowess at yacht construction. As ever this edition features the highly anticipated New Projects section, which presents an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at some of the most exciting designs on the boards of the industry's leading designers, naval architects, and yacht builders. Spanning 30 pages, the new yachts on the horizon for launch in the next few years indicate that there are indeed exciting trends to come.
