editor’s letter

Our Voyage section this month got me dreaming. Not of faraway powderwhite beaches, long reaches under sail or zipping into some cool beach bar in a tender, but just getting on an airplane. There was a moment in September when I was due to fly to Italy after six months of being grounded and it caused me genuine anxiety. I had forgotten how to travel. Where had I stuffed my perfect-for-the-overhead-locker weekend bag? How much toothpaste did I need? Did I have enough time to charge all of the 14 devices I’m convinced I need before I leave the house? The trip was canceled at the last minute due to a surge of Covid-19 cases, which was handy as I had packed eight shirts and no underwear. I’m hoping the…

Sam Fortescue A former sailing magazine editor, Sam lives in northern Germany and sails with his family whenever the rain lets up. For this issue, he writes about the new entries in our rundown of the world’s 101 largest yachts (page 63). What thing most stood out while researching this feature? The way Nord’s hangar slides out of the superstructure to envelop the helicopter. I just love it Which is your favorite of the boats in the 101? OceanXplorer was the project that really caught my eye. Not because of its luxury – the yacht doesn’t have so much as a pool – but because here is a boat that has spared no expense when it comes to ocean science and media The most memorable time you’ve ever spent with a superyacht owner?

nord star

In the dwindling days of winter 2020, the 466ft Lürssen Nord was captured undergoing sea trials in the Baltic Sea ahead of her delivery. One of the largest yachts in the world by length and gross tonnage, this ice-classed explorer with six decks takes her position in our Top 101 list. However, more than her size, it is her stunning appearance that has captured the imagination of superyacht fans everywhere. Her exterior design by Nuvolari Lenard puts the yacht’s helicopter capabilities front and center. A squared bow sporting a backlit nameplate and unique paint scheme are just a few of the features that will make Nord instantly recognizable wherever she goes. For more on this new entry in the Top 101 and to read comments by project manager Moran Yacht…

A Feadship trifecta October was a busy month at Feadship with the launch of three important projects in various stages of completion. Closest to delivery is Boardwalk, previously known as Project 707 and designed by De Voogt Naval Architects for an experienced owner. The 251ft yacht is due for delivery in 2021. In earlier stages of construction is Project 1010, which was seen for the first time as the hull and superstructure emerged from Feadship’s metal facility near Rotterdam, the Netherlands. At 387ft, it will eclipse 361ft Anna, currently Feadship’s largest delivered yacht. Finally, Project 708, an 180ft expedition-style yacht designed by Philippe Briand’s Vitruvius studio with an interior by Boutsen Design, was seen for the first time outside the shed. Key features include an Ice Class hull and a 6.3-tonne…

patriot games

Launching a new boat is an exceptionally special time for any America’s Cup team. For NYYC American Magic this day came on October 16. After 80,000 working hours, a global pandemic, an Antonov (cargo) flight and final fit-out in New Zealand, Patriot was launched – three days ahead of schedule. On that day, US General Consul to New Zealand Katelyn Choe spoke the words that we always love to hear: “On behalf of the New York Yacht Club and the United States of America I christen thee Patriot. God bless her and all who sail her!” Without question a special moment, not just because of the significance of the day but because of what Patriot represents to our team. She is our future and carries the hopes of our team. At the…
