Monaco Yacht Show 2018 is over for another year and, as always, there were a number of new superyacht unveilings. In addition to the new-launch highlights we documented midway through the show last week (28th September), here are some of the other world premieres that were announced.
Baglietto used the occasion of Monaco Yacht Show to showcase two new concepts – a 65-metre (213-foot) newcomer to the V-Line and a 43-metre (142-foot) Explorer. Described as having a “slightly retro” appearance, the V-Line has been designed by Francesco Paszkowski Design and features a float-in stern-based garage, big enough to store a 10-metre tender.
The 43m Baglietto Explorer has been designed by Santa Maria Magnolfi and is characterised by seaworthiness, comfort and safety.
Rosetti Superyachts revealed a 52-metre (171-foot) supply vessel concept, designed by Phi Design Lab’s Giovanni Griggio. The yard says it will offer “the typical functionality” of a support vessel, combined with “the design features and quality finish of a superyacht”.
Dutch company Hakvoort announced that construction work has begun on a 45-metre (148-foot) superyacht currently known as Project Adur. It will be built in steel and aluminium to a design created by Omega Architects. Van Oosanen Naval Architects is responsible for the hull, which will be fitted with a Hull Vane-patented ‘spoiler’ for more efficient fuel consumption. It is due to be completed in early 2021.
Finnish yard Nautor’s Swan introduced a new model to its Maxi Swan line – the Swan 120. Spanning 36.5 metres (120 feet), the superyacht has been designed by German Frers and features interior design by Italian architect Misa Poggi. According to the yard, Swan 120 is “defining the next generation of performance superyacht design”.
Italian yard Rossinavi provided fresh details and renderings of Project Blue Runner, its previously announced aluminium fast-displacement yacht. Due to be delivered in 2020, the project has “an explorer feel” and will also feature an “elongated glass frontage” to allow plenty of natural light to flood through the interior.
Elsewhere, Sunseeker and Fincantieri Yachts were among the other companies to share exciting news during the show – Sunseeker confirmed it will be joining forces with Icon Yachts on a new all-metal line of superyachts, while Fincantieri unveiled a 106-metre (348-foot) superyacht concept named Voyage.
