Issue 53

Hitting the shelves tomorrow, SuperYacht World’s January/February 2017 issue is the perfect way to start the New Year off, packed full of exclusive yacht reports, the latest news, and a special focus on some eye-catching refits.

Feadship’s legendary hybrid superyacht has hit the charter market for the first time, and we were granted exclusive access to this 83.5-metre star. An interview with her designer Cristina Gherardi Bernardeau and a stunning photo-shoot will transport you to life on board.

Winner of the 2016 SuperYacht World Baccarat Award, this Amels 180 Limited Editions yacht has been specced-out to the nth degree, and an exclusive chat with her owner shows just how this new yacht will be used.

Refit Special
Refits give a yacht a new beginning, keeping heritage alive and ensuring a new generation of life on the water. In this issue we look at the amazing Jon Bannenberg-designed Coral Ocean, which was seen back at her Lürssen best at the 2016 Monaco Yacht Show, and the magnificent Feadship Constance, who arrived for her refit at the Pendennis yard uninsurable but is now in pristine condition. Meanwhile, sailing yacht Adele is ready for adventure and taking on the world’s coldest corners, while two Feadship sisterships have been lovingly and sensitively restored to their 1969 classic lines.
