Buying a yacht has always tapped into the emotional parts of the brain "We’re working in a market where people buy for their personal enjoyment rather than commercial reasons, so the practices taught in business school don’t always apply.” So says John Cohen of Merle Wood in our Broker of the Month column (page 97). The mental processing involved with buying a yacht has always tapped primarily into the emotional parts of the brain, and the two owners whose yachts we are featuring this month are excellent exemplars of this ‘rules don’t apply’ approach. The owner of the modern classic Taransay conceived his project to build the 39-metre Rossinavi after chartering an original classic yacht that didn’t quite meet his family’s needs. The only solution was to create his own (see…

The sharp angles are in ENTICING contrast to the SENSUOUS curves 11•11 Benetti’s striking 63-metre The plumb bow, sharp angles and austere foredeck of Benetti’s 63-metre 11•11 are an enticing contrast with the sensuous curves and arches on the superstructure. Exterior styling is by Benetti’s in-house team and they have created a thoroughly engaging steel-and-aluminium yacht. The interior is pretty striking, too, with a contrasting light and dark décor, and some incredible artworks from the owner’s collection - the butterfly ‘Flutter Wall’ by interactive artist Dominic Harris in the main salon will wow any guest. She sleeps 12 guests and will charter this summer, and with spacious master and VIP suites, charter parties won’t be disappointed. Contact www.benettiyachts.it She’s a strong statement of INTENT. The uses of SPACE really catch the eye SUERTE A first, remarkable yacht…

One of the most obvious points that comes through in conversation with James Claydon and Mike Reeves is how passionate they are about design. They are not going through the motions; they truly believe in their objective to create better design and improve what is already out there. Theirs is not an aim to emulate: they have indeed worked with the biggest names in the industry, but they have no desire to poach from larger outfits. Their raison d’être is to create what has not come before, reach people who have not been approached before, and do it all through good design. Take Exo, the dramatically-styled sailing yacht concept with a distinct exoskeleton construction. "The whole point was to try to get a window downstairs,” says Reeves. "Normally it’s just a…

ann g

“I knew from the BEGINNING that I wanted to build something new and IMPRESSIVE” Ann G is not your average bespoke yacht. The owners were so involved in her build and design that she has been optimised right down to the smallest details to be an inimitable machine for, and a means to, her owner’s cruising life. With her striking blue hull and raised profile, she is not a typical Heesen aesthetically. The fast diplacement yachts we have seen the yard produce over the past couple of years serve to make the full-displacement 49.6-metre Ann G seem all the more unique, all the more bespoke. "I knew from the beginning that I wanted to build something different and new that would be impressive in four year’s time,” says the owner. "I didn’t find…

when in greece

If you could conjure up the ideal superyacht playground out of earthly matter, you’d want a number of key features: an easily accessible mainland, supplemented by a thousand beguiling islands big and small, with deep-water harbours for berthing, picturesque waterside villages, and anchorages close by that feel wild and untouched. You’d work on the climate, too – you’d want some hot months and mild winters, and not too many weather gremlins to worry about. And you can add in a backstory, to give the place a rich ancient history, making it a cradle of modern civilisation, a melting pot of myths and ideas. Congratulations, you’ve just invented Greece. An increasing number of superyacht owners and captains are discovering Greece as a cruising ground, whether it’s for some late-season sunshine or for…
