A spectacular newcomer was welcomed at this year’s Monaco Yacht Show. ‘This Is It’, a futuristic 43.5-meter catamaran, born from the vision of owner Tasos Papanastasiou, was one of the main attractions at the prestigious event.

Owner’s vision – turning dreams into reality

Owner Tasos Papanastasiou, known for establishing XM, one of the world’s largest financial forex platforms, envisioned ‘This Is It’ not as a concept study, but as a yacht to be built. The design, guided by aerodynamic principles, presents fluid lines and dynamic shapes inspired by the automotive world. Interior spaces are a mix of curved designs and exquisite materials, including leather, Alcantara suede fabrics, and metallic surfaces in bronze, platinum, and gold.
