Global yachting events may be cancelled but launches are not—they’re just moving online. Because, really, when’s a better time than now for a new boat? Here, a preview of seven great superyachts making digital debutsto a laptop near you.
Riva 88 Folgore
Inspired by historic automotive design, Riva’s 88 Folgore captures a bold new look with carbon and steel accents (standard on futuristic yachts) complementing retro mahogany inlays. The sleek profile is boosted by the integrated “sport-fly” bridge while the interior—an ensemble of marble, steel, wood and glass—offers owners a choice of three layouts for the master stateroom.

The prosaically named 62Steel has unusually inventive features, such as a glass-bottom swimming pool that doubles as the beach club’s ceiling, plus a gym overlooking the sea. The most impressive area of this 61.5 metre is the 210sqm master suite, with floor-to-ceiling bedroom windows and doors that lead to a private terrace.

Don’t be fooled by the 1930s look: Turquoise’s 56-metre Blue II is equipped with modern exploration features such as an ice-class hull and diesel-electric propulsion. The Hoek design is perfectly at home in the Med, but she’s more likely to be exploring Antarctica. And the classic exterior pairs beautifully with the interior’s subtle colour scheme and teak detailing.

Sunseeker Ocean Club 50
Coming in 2021, Sunseeker’s Ocean Club 50 is a 48-metre seafaring villa that uses every inch of exterior space for socialising, including a sweeping foredeck area, an outdoor lounge on the flybridge, two pools and a one-of-a-kind beach club with three fold-down decks. Floor-to-ceiling windows across all decks give it a glass-house effect.
Benetti Oasis 40M
A clean-sheet design for Benetti, the Oasis 40M’s stern takes up much of its 40-metre length. With a pool and lounge, the open platform is more club than yacht. Other havens include flybridge and foredeck terraces. Floor-to-ceiling windows across the interior, including the owner’s suite, enhance the connection to the sea.

Bilgin’s 80-metre Tatiana is Turkey’s largest build. H2 Yacht Design provided a sleek, contemporary interior that accommodates 16 guests, with an owner’s deck, three VIPs and four double cabins. The exterior is defined by the numerous social areas—including a foredeck lounge for dining, a separate lounge with pool and multiple alcoves—with a focus on enjoying the outdoors.

Feadship’sMoonrise has a singular exterior enhanced by an outdoor gym, elaborate beach club and foredeck helipad. She will be recognizable wherever she cruises around the world. Thanks to the yacht’s 100-metre and 15-metre beam, Rémi Tessier had vast space to create his exceptional interior, with eight staterooms and quarters for 34 crew.
