It’s when an owner’s VISION meets a designer’s CREATIVITY Most of the world seems obsessed with listing superyachts by length, but we’ve always taken a qualitative approach on SuperYacht World. That’s why, to mark the mini-milestone that is our 50th issue, we’ve created a list of our Top 50 Greatest Superyachts of All Time. These are the yachts that have more impact than just the size of their fuel tanks or the number of seats in the crew mess. It’s about their ground-breaking qualities, the moments of design genius, and the incredible technical feats of the many shipyards involved. When you look at the Top 50, you get a real sense of what is possible when an owner’s vision meets a designer’s creativity, and a shipyard’s engineering prowess. Ten of these…

“The internet is HUGELY changing how the industry works” The venerable company of Northrop & Johnson has been undergoing something of a rebrand over the past two years, and at the heart of it has been Daniel Ziriakus, chief operating officer since 2014. One of the keys to the rebrand has been an increased emphasis on the use of technology: "It’s cutting edge. Every broker can access a vast inventory remotely within seconds, 24/7. We’re technology driven in order to enhance the very best customer service ” he says. And before you think that the geeks have inherited the earth, he is quick to point out that the traditional foundation of selling boats hasn’t been forgotten. "Our plan is to remain true to our core business in sales, charter, management and new…

There is an emphasis on ENTERTAINMENT and HANG-OUT areas “My goal for Kismet was to create a yacht that many years from now will be timeless and yet still be ahead of its time. I wanted to balance awesome with welcoming,” says Shahid Khan, owner of the stunning 95-metre Lürssen, which is entering her second full summer of cruising. A new superyacht project presents its designers with the most desirable of blank canvases. When you get up to the 90-metre-plus mark, it’s more than a mere canvas, it’s a landscape - as empty landscapes go, this is Kentucky in the late 1600s. But it’s not just a matter of filling the acres of virgin territory with novelties: there’s sometimes a backstory, too, which brings its own constraints. "The stakes were high,” as exterior…

culinary gold

Over three days at the MYBA Charter Show in Genoa, a team of dedicated judges visited the many yachts, sampling the work of some of the best chefs in the business. This magazine is a proud sponsor of the award, and we’re pleased to report that this season’s competition - with the overall theme ‘A Tribute to Italy. Italian Cuisine - Classic and Modern’ - was as strong as ever. The chefs were invited to prepare three classic Italian dishes - a pasta dish, a main course and a dessert. Two dishes were to be as classic in nature as possible and the third dish (of the chef’s choice) was to be given a 2016 makeover. It could be a lunch or dinner menu and chefs could choose from any…
