From Northern Europe to the Mediterranean, with Italy and Turkey, as well as Asia and Australia, yacht manufacturers are plenty and of various scope. While under 30 yards deliver over 10 yachts over 30 meters a year, many are focused on an exclusive production tailored to the owner’s wishes. The northern countries are focused on large-high-quality superyachts, with Lurssen building most of the 100m+ superyachts for example. Amels build semi-custom displacement yachts from 55m to over 80m, while Heesen offers 50m to 70m semi-custom semi-displacement superyachts and Feadship works on a full-custom base up to 111 meters. Italy tends to focus on more production vessels, under 50m with some one-offs over 60m coming from CRN, Rossinavi and now even a few 100m+ from Benetti.
No country has a better reputation for technology and quality than Germany. Since Lürssen was founded in 1875, they have always been at the forefront in terms of investing in state-of-the-art technology to improve quality, speed and precision. Investment decisions are driven by one priority: how to guarantee the best technology to build your yacht.
For more than 40 years, Heesen has pursued a consistent mission: to create yachts with exceptional standards of engineering and meticulous attention to detail. To achieve this, skilled hands, driven by a passion for perfection, make all the difference. They are able to fulfil every customer’s dream. Their craftsmanship is matched with a hunger for innovation, creating designs that continuously push the limit. But the Heesen experience goes beyond building a perfect yacht. It’s all about exceeding the client’s expectations with first-class service at all times.
From the imagined to the tangible, Benetti presents an inimitable reverie that has been able to charm the celebrity elite worldwide. The portrait of Prince Rainier III with Grace Kelly on the Benetti Gabbiano in the bay of Monte Carlo remains iconic. Not forgetting the notes of Queen’s song titled Khashoggi ’s Ship, voicing Freddy Mercury’s experience on board M/Y Nabila, the most famous yacht of her time.
