Best of the Best 2012: Semicustom Megayachts: Danish Yachts AeroCruiser 38

With a striking design from Espen Øino International, the 125-foot Danish Yachts AeroCruiser 38 (+45.9845.4200, www.danishyachts.com) might be the most cutting-edge semicustom yacht. Launched in April 2011, the first AeroCruiser 38, christened Shooting Star, features a carbon-fiber hull and superstructure, making the yacht extremely light for its size—and extremely fast. It achieves a top speed of 47.8 knots. Shooting Star accommodates as many as seven passengers in a refined Scandinavian-influenced interior, replete with sleek, contemporary lines; custom furniture; teak and maple woods; and light-toned fabrics. Among the interior highlights are the main salon’s large retractable sunroof and the Bang & Olufsen audio and video equipment that includes a large rotating TV. The main salon opens completely to the aft deck, which offers a 10-seat dining table, a sizable sun bed, and dual staircases leading to the stern’s swim platform. The yacht’s garage has sufficient room for a 12-foot tender.
