The Sunreef 80 is the first in Sunreef Yacht's Carbon Line

Sunreef Yachts’ first luxury catamaran in its new Carbon Line hit the open water for the first time last month and is undergoing sea trials before making its way to the Cannes Boat Show 2013 in mid-September for its world premiere. To reach its lightship weight (the weight of the completed vessel, minus any provisions, supplies or cargo) of 45 tonnes (49 tons), the 80 Levante is made from an advanced composite sandwich that combines vinylester, PVC foam and carbon/glass fiber.  Read More

Last year we provided readers with the first images of the US$15 million Adastra superyacht being constructed in China. The incredible watercraft has since traveled 4,000 nautical miles (7,400 km) through the Philippines, Indonesia and Thailand and earlier this month was presented with the 2013 World Superyacht Award for Most Innovative Design.  Read More

Mercedes Benz is famous for its range of cars, trucks buses and vans, but the company has ambitions beyond the land. Last year, Mercedes took to the skies with the Eurocopter EC145 Mercedes Benz Style luxury helicopter, and now it has eyes on the seas as part of its vision of “all encompassing mobility.” Presenting the designs at the 2012 Monaco Yacht Show, Mercedes has teamed up with UK-based boat-building company Silver Arrows Marine to design what it describes as a “14-meter (46 ft) long seagoing Granturismo.”  Read More

The Freestyle Cruiser is a giant, inflatable water slide aimed at the superyacht market

How many times have you been aboard some billionaire’s superyacht only to be disappointed because there wasn’t a giant, inflatable slide hanging off the stern? Yes, we’ve all been there. Now, Freestyle Slides comes to the aid of the embarrassed super rich with its line of bespoke Freestyle Cruiser PVC slides that give a hundred million dollar yacht that little something extra – in this case, it’s an inflatable, 45-degree water slide with a one-story drop.  Read More

The CXL 160 will come with a McLaren MP4-12C, which has its own designated storage compart...

The McLaren MP4-12C is one of the more interesting supercars on the road, and it conveys a certain sense of wealth and connoisseurship about its driver. Of course, the MP4-12C's prestige pales in comparison to any massive, multi-million-dollar yacht ... unless, of course, it happens to be on board such a vessel. The Ultraluxum CXL 160 is a huge, high-tech sailing yacht with a show garage designed specifically for the MP4-12C.  Read More

Serbian luxury yacht producer Art of Kinetik has recently launched its latest pleasure boat for the summer season. Named Antagonist, the vessel is a sleek wooden model that features clean elegant lines that are reminiscent of the 60s and 70s. With its deep wooden hull and a top speed of 42 knots, this speedboat is not only fit for a Sean Connery-era James Bond, but it’s impressively powerful.  Read More

2012 Motor Yacht of the Year, Tango

We regularly feature the latest superyachts on Gizmag because they offer a mixture of breathtaking design and cutting edge technology in a rarefied arena where price is seemingly no object. The resulting floating marvels often seem more like works of art than mere ocean-going transportation. An incredible 262 superyachts worth US$3.5 billion sold last year (including one that went for $300 million!) so it's no wonder that some of the world's wealthiest glitterati flocked to Istanbul earlier this month to take part in what is essentially the Oscars of the luxury boating scene - the World Superyacht Awards.  Read More

Feadship's new Hampshire II luxury motoryacht prepares to launch

When Feadship Royal Dutch shipyards rolls, or rather, floats out one of their multi-million dollar superyachts, it does so with a lot of fanfare. Just last month, we covered the unveiling of their innovative Qi (Chi) concept vessel and now the megayacht builder has introduced its latest real-world effort, the 257-foot (78.50m) luxury motoryacht Hampshire II, which left the drydock at the company's Kaag, Netherlands, facility a few days ago.  Read More

The $15 million Adastra luxury trimaran was launched yesterday in China

Last July, we provided readers with specs and renderings of the Adastra superyacht, which was being constructed in China by boat builder John Shuttleworth. While it might have seemed like a fanciful concept at the time, yesterday the completed yacht was launched in China’s Pearl River.  Read More
