The Abeking & Rasmussen-built superyacht ranks in the top 50 largest yachts in the world. Aviva is 321 feet LOA, can hit a 20-knot top speed and can reportedly run at an 11-knot cruise.
Galactica Super Nova
One of the most exciting launches of the year was Galactica Super Nova. The 230-foot superyacht was built by Heesen, and the Dutch shipyard promoted the launch heavily, complete with a special event held on the superyacht at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. See videos from on board here.
The Sanlorenzo 52Steel Seven Sins was launched in January of this year. She’s 170-feet LOA and has five decks.

Lürssen started the year big with this massive 446-foot superyacht. Project Thunder takes spot No. 13 on the world’s largest yachts list, tying with Blohm + Voss’ Savarona.
Damen is known for its advanced support yacht vessel builds and Game Changer is no different. The 227-foot SYV is prepared for storage of a significant amount of yacht tenders and toys with 820 square feet of deck space.
Cerri Cantieri Navali (CCN) launched the 164-foot Elsea in April. She can hit speeds of up to 27 knots, an impressive top hop for a yacht her size.
Benetti Yachts launched the 219-foot FB268 M/Y Seasense at its Livorno shipyard in Italy. This is the first collaboration between Benetti and Los Angeles-based designer Cor D. Rover.
Amels’ Lili is a new addition to the builder’s Limited Editions fleet. She’s a 180-footer with 1,900-square-foot outdoor space and a 13-foot pool. What more could you want in a superyacht?
Pink Gin VI
The Pink Gin VI is the only sailing yacht on this list, and for good reason — she’s the world’s largest carbon fiber sloop. The 175-footer and her accommodations include a master stateroom, six guest staterooms and four crew cabins.
Ferretti’s Custom Line launched the 108-foot Navetta 33 earlier this year. She joins the Navetta line, which includes a 28 and 37, while a 42 is currently in development. The 33 has a 2,000-nm range, making her not just aesthetically pleasing but also built to go the distance, as well.
Numarine recently launched Hull No. 1 of its 32XP in Istanbul. The superyacht has an LOA of 106’7″ and is Numarine’s first ever Explorer Superyacht.
A lucky Australian owns this 240-foot yacht. A unique detail onboard Hasna is the engine room was placed forward of the accommodation level suites so that guests could have easier access to the yacht’s beach club.
Areti may be nearly half the size of the first Lürssen on this list, Project Thunder, but she’s still impressive in her own right. Areti is 278’9″ length overall and 48-foot-6-inch beam. Even better, she has an onboard spa — sauna included.
This 1,000-ton-plus, 243-footer spans five decks and is the result of a collaboration between CRN’s Technical Department, Studio Zuccon International Project, who designed the exterior, and Winch Design, who designed the interior.
