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.

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.
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.
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.
