After a year’s hiatus, the world’s most important big-yacht show returns to Monte Carlo, with 82 superyachts on display. Here are some top premieres.
Next week’s show will have fewer superyachts and attendees to make seeing the vessels easier and more exclusive for buyers.
The sleek 180-footer is slated for delivery in the fall of 2023.
The exterior of “Aurelia” was inspired by Steve McQueen’s “Le Mans” racer while the cabins have Ferrari, Lamborghini and Aston Martin motifs.
Narrow canals, rural roads, and low bridges are just a few of the nail-biting challenges gigayachts face on their deliveries.
Heesen’s just-delivered “Moskito” has an aggressive exterior, thanks to vertical windows and dramatic overhang. But the interior is all about comfort.
Cotton, feathers and hemp are used instead of leathers and woods, while non-reusable eggshells mimic coral and pearl on walls and tables.
Heesen’s Project Gemini makes excellent use of the interior spaces, maximizing natural light and creating unusual features like the secluded health center in the beach club.
