Delivered earlier this year, Kenshō is the Italian Sea Group’s new flagship, with cascading decks said to be inspired by the natural world. The new 75 metre was first penned by the owner, who sketched out 12 lines in 2016 and went on to oversee the project in every detail, working with Azure Yacht Design and Naval Architects. Accommodation is for 16 guests in eight cabins, comprising a full 13 metre beam master’s suite and seven en suite staterooms.
The 65.4 metre Triumph is one of the latest fully-custom launches from Benetti, featuring the Italian shipyard’s latest “box-in-box” construction technology to reduce running noise and vibrations. This, along with a raft of other design innovations, is encased within a balanced exterior by Giorgio Cassetta. True to her name, Triumph picked up a Neptune at the 2022 Word Superyacht Awards in the Displacement Motor Yachts 1,000GT to 1,499GT category.
Rio is the latest launch from Italian shipyard CRN. She is designed in partnership with Omega Architects and marks the first collaboration between the shipyard and studio since the 73 metre Yalla in 2014. Rio features a playful, family-oriented interior courtesy of Pulina Exclusive Interiors with a foredeck sun lounge and sundeck dipping pool making her an appealing charter option.
Delivered in June this year, Come Together is the first project in Amels’ reimagined Limited Edition series designed by Espen Øino characterised by four triangular windows. Kitted out with electrical propulsion motors, Come Together is the first Amels 60 with hybrid power, reducing the yacht’s noise, vibration, fuel consumption and emissions. Her relaxed interiors were penned by Winch Design and emanate a calm, beachy aesthetic on board.
Dutch yard Heesen’s largest steel creation to date, the 60 metre Lusine, features accommodation for an impressive 16 guests split between seven cabins.

Highlights include an infinity pool and 36 square metre beach club. The sale of Iryna was first announced at the 2018 Monaco Yacht Show so it is fitting that she should return to the Principality for her world debut.
Kinda is the fourth hull in the Italian shipyard’s all-aluminium S501 series. Delivered in June, she joins her sisterships Vertige, Bintador and Olokun, but is the first unit in the series to feature a foredeck swimming pool.

Mangusta 165 REV
Length: 49.9 m

The model builds on the success of the previous 165, a best-selling model with 12 units delivered since 2007. The current version is equipped with a waterfront lounge and takes design cues from 1930’s sports cars – appropriate considering she is powered by four Rolls Royce 2600 HP engines.
Builder: Cantiere delle Marche
Acala was conceived in close collaboration with her experienced owner. The result is a 43.1-metre yacht with a raked bow and a compact superstructure that offers a rugged explorer look.

Custom Line 140

Attitude is the first of Baglietto’s DOM 133 series offering transoceanic cruising and access to shallow waters thanks to its limited 2.1-metre draft. Designer Stefano Vafiadis explains that DOM stands for the Latin word domus, meaning home. The idea of being home while away is at the core of this mid-size series.
Builder: Maori Yacht
When the 38 metre Maori 125 was launched in June 2022 and became the flagship of her Italian yard. Designed by Marco Ciampa, the yacht is characterised by a huge beach club at her stern, which can host an array of sun lounging, socialising and al fresco dining. Elsewhere, Pulina Exclusive are responsible for the yacht’s interiors, which can host up to 10 guests in five cabins while her luxurious main saloon is well lit with frequent natural light.
The 38 metre Enterprise full-custom project demanded the development of a whole new platform, which might yet become the first in a new series. “Our shared vision was to break the mould,” says her owner. “Not to build a boat that was typical and expected but to create something innovative… the largest 38 metre vessel by volume ever built.”
Conceived by Paolo Vitelli, founder and president of the Azimut Benetti Group, with late architect Stefano Righini, Goga is a groundbreaking project for Benetti due to its four-deck layout in just 37 metres. Featuring a hybrid system for long-range, environment-friendly cruising, Goga has a range of 8,200 nautical miles at nine knots and can reach speeds of 14 knots in ‘Eco Transfer’ mode.
