Records are toppling for the longest, fastest, most self-sufficient and technologically advanced superyachts this year. Here's our pick of the top 5 megayacht launches in 2017
Abeking & Rasmussen has launched its largest superyacht to date: the 98-metre, four-deck AVIVA.
Vibrant blue and surrounded by glass superstructure, AVIVA also boasts a remarkable on board padel-tennis court, measuring 20 metres by 10 metres, with a six-metre height. The owner is a passionate player who wanted to be able to enjoy the sport wherever he cruised.
WHITE RABBIT GOLF
Constructed by Echo Yachts in Henderson, Western Australia, WHITE RABBIT GOLF is destined to be the world's largest aluminium trimaran superyacht and also the largest superyacht ever built in Australia. Another Sam Sorgiovanni design for both interiors and exterior, this 84m (275ft) trimaran boasts a beam of 20m (65ft).
At 83-metre (272ft) SILVER LOFT is another Australian superyacht and follows the award-winning and revolutionary launches SILVER, SILVE ZWEI and SILVER FAST from SilverYachts, based in the thriving boat building precinct of Henderson.
Designed by Espen Oeino, SILVER LOFT bears a more rugged profile, equipping her for expedition cruising, while still being built for faster than average cruising. SILVER LOFT is designed to offer the same hydrodynamic and eco-friendly approach as her predecessors, but this time offering nearly twice the volume, at 1600 GT.
Oceanco Yacht's JUBILEE at 110 metres is the largest yacht ever built in The Netherlands. With exterior styling by Italian design studio, Lobanov Design, and her interior by Western Australia's Sorgiovanni Designs, she is an impressive 5-deck megayacht, with accommodation for 30 people in 15 suites and a dedicated owner's deck. Key features include a fully-certified foredeck helipad, an aft-deck swimming pool with built-in aquarium and a superyacht beach club below.
Launching this year from Pride Mega Yachts in China, ILLUSION is an 88m motor yacht designed by Azure Naval with exterior styling by Rainsford Mann Design. She is constructed of a steel hull and aluminium superstructure for smooth cruising. Her elaborate spacious layout features an impressive interior volume, creating a warm relaxing atmosphere.
ILLUSION was designed over six decks with accommodation for up to 14 guests in seven spacious cabins.
