Just like any other motor vehicle out there, there will always be new superyachts coming out each and every year. From ultra fast cruisers to floating palaces with multiple helipads, superyacht manufacturers don’t know the meaning of the word “excessive.” In terms of luxury features and amenities, you can really put almost anything on a superyacht, and as all vehicles advance each year, we can expect some truly incredible superyachts in 2017. But for now, let’s look back on 2016 as an incredible year for the superyacht.
Here are our picks for the top 10 superyachts of 2016.
The Amer 94
While it may be one of the smaller superyachts out there, the Amer 94 is still a beautiful vessel from the Italian brand known as Amer Yachts. Perfect for those that want most of the amenities seen in larger superyachts but in a smaller package, the Amer 94 is very premium. It features three Volvo Penta IPS engines that propel the vessel to speeds of some 30-knots in addition reducing fuel consumption. Amer also outfitted the yacht with noise paneling and were able to reduce noise by a figure of some 50%. Add it that classic Italian styling, beautiful interiors, and large windows, and you’ve got a great superyacht on your hands.
The ISA 140 Sport
The ISA 140 Sport is certainly one of the more impressive yachts that you’ll see. It not only has a sleek design but it is apparently the first vessel to utilize a water jet propulsion system combined with a hybrid diesel and electric engine. The result is that the ISA 140 Sport can hit speeds of some 32-knots in addition to saving tons of fuel. The ISA 140 Sport has enough cabin space to hold around 10 guests and the interiors are very beautiful, as a variety of premium features were used like real marble and it even has goods from Hermès.
The Mangusta 132
Overmarine Group showed off their Mangusta 132 at the 2016 Monaco Yacht Show, and it’s quite the beauty. It features a long and sleek body that’s distinctly Italian and is packed with a host of modern amenities. There are a few sun beds, al fresco dining areas, beautiful interior spaces, and room for a total of eleven guests. With its three MTU engines on board the Mangusta 132 can reach speeds of 37-knots, so it’s also a complete animal on the water as well.
