Ulysses

This 56-metre Benetti has unusual features including a white-topped dark hull inspired by a glass of Guinness. A Steinway over 100 years old, a beer tap in the sky lounge and an owner’s suite hairdressing station are just some of the interesting features. An elevator connects the lower three decks, and the sundeck has a pizza oven where the chef hosts pizza-making evenings with charter guests. An outdoor screen up here is also great for film nights, and the owner’s unusual collection of statues of mythical beasts is a guaranteed talking point. The yacht is on charter with Fraser.

 

Pride

Beginning her build at Viudes and finished by Mondo Marine’s Repair & Refit division, the 45-metre Pride combines an ultra-classic cherrywood interior with large outdoor spaces. Inside, minimum heights of 2.15m throughout mean she feels larger than her LOA. “We are trying to achieve the spaces of a 55-metre on a 45-metre,” says Pere Millet of Yacht Marine. Innovative features include a lower-deck relaxation area, with a swim platform leading directly to a sauna, and there is a room ready to be kitted out as a gym or media room depending on the wishes of a new owner. Aft balconies provide great views. She is for charter and sale through Yacht Marine.

 

Ocean Paradise

The most eagerly anticipated and newest yacht to appear at the show, the 55-metre Benetti Ocean Paradise drew much attention from brokers and press. Her unique interior is heavily Asian-influenced, with an indoor garden and soft white materials accented by brightly patterned furnishings, dark leathers and colour-changing LED lighting. The owner’s suite features a balcony with an outdoor shower and a hanging chair. She charters through Y.CO.

 

Aqua Libra

Chartering through Camper & Nicholsons, the 37-metre Sunseeker Aqua Libra has top speeds of 30 knots (cruising 24 knots). Sleeping up to ten guests, features include a sky lounge humidor, wine cellar and three independent sound zones on the main deck operated by a Bang & Olufsen system. Guests looking for a charter in which health and wellbeing are prioritised will be happy: the split-level master cabin includes a sauna, and there are a masseuse and qualified yoga instructor on the crew.

 

Elena

It is the attention to detail on this replica of Nathanael Herreshoff’s 1910 design that is astonishing: from intricate period fittings to deck spaces, this schooner continually triumphs in races and promises relaxed, stylish cruising in five cabins. Captain Steve McLaren, who oversaw the build project, is a passionate captain with 40 years’ experience. Charterers looking to experience a back-in-time charter will be attracted to this 60-metre, on charter with Y.CO.
