Top 5 boat launches at the MYS

Top 5 boat launches at the MYS

By Cassandra Tanti - September 18, 2019

The Monaco Yacht Show is renowned for launching the world’s finest super yachts, but this year’s show is set to unveil some of the biggest, most exciting superyachts yet.

Monaco Life’s yachting expert Patrick Coote has put together his top five picks from the impressive list of new yachts appearing at this year’s show.



At 111 metres, Tis is one of the biggest launches this year. It is the latest boat by Lürssen and features a stunning interior design by Andrew Winch. It features two helicopter pads, a 12-metre swimming pool, a resort-inspired spa in the aft of the vessel and palatial staircases. Her tender garage can accommodate two 13 metre tenders and an abundant selection of other water toys. In addition to a massive private owner’s deck, eight other guest staterooms can accommodate 16 additional guests in absolute comfort. She cruises at 13.0 kn and reaches a top speed of 18.0 kn.

This 80-metre has been built by Abeking & Rasmussen for experienced yacht owner Herb Chambers from the US. It’s modern exterior and interior is also by Winch Design. It’s unique design is characterised by a sharp plumb bow and striking multi-level reflective windows that give the yacht a unique signature as her surroundings change. Inside luxuries include a large swimming pool on the main deck, a jacuzzi on the owner’s deck aft and a large water-level tender garage where the yacht’s limousine tenders are kept.



Bold from Silver Yachts was designed by Monaco-based company Espen Øino. The 85-metre yacht “embodies the current trend for utilitarian styling, bordering on a military look and feel, and clearly retains some of the DNA from SKAT (71m) albeit much earlier in Øino’s career,” says yachting expert Patrick Coote. Her top speed is 24.0kn and she can accommodate up to 18 people and 21 crew members. The interior design was created by Vain Interiors.



This 80-metre hybrid superyacht is being displayed by Nobiskrug. “A truly avant garde exterior design by Gregory C. Marshall and another stunning interior by London-based Reymond Langton,” comments Mr Coote. The interior design is remaining under wraps though until its reveal at the Monaco Yacht Show.

Syzygy 818

Syzygy 818  (77m) has been a highly confidential project at Feadship, but will soon be available for all to see. “She is truly stunning and the first ever superyacht created by famous Finnish designer Jarkko Jamsen,” says Mr Coote. Sinot Yacht Architecture & Design were responsible for the interior spaces on board. The word syzygy refers to the alignment of three celestial bodies such as lunar and solar exlpises, while the numbers in the name are considered prosperous in Chinese numerology.


The Monaco Yacht Show will be held from 25th to 28th September.
