Five of the Biggest Superyacht Launches of 2021

Boating International has revealed five new additions to its 101 Largest Superyacht 2021 round-up. As the name suggests, the list is made up of the world’s largest and most enviable superyachts. By examining the world’s largest superyachts, the list leads the way in revealing the latest superyacht trends and industry movements. This year, the list has found new standards of design and a growing movement towards hybrid-propulsion systems. Let’s introduce you to the five new superyachts that have made the 2021 list.


Solaris is the largest new addition to the 2021 Boating International list. At 140m long, Solaris has eight different decks and can sleep up to 36 guests. But the super yacht’s most stand out feature is arguably the glass panes built into its stunning design. The boat uses more than 2000 square metres of glass, holding the title for the largest glass panes to ever be built into a yacht. In addition to this, the yacht is also fitted out with a twin ABB Azipod electric propulsion system, which also happens to be one of the world’s largest systems fitted into this type of yacht.

At 115m long, Ahpo is the second-largest new superyacht to grace Boating International’s 2021 list. With a 200- square-metre owner’s suite, the yacht is not short of private space and is even marketed as a family-focused boat. Designed by Nuvolari Lenard, the yacht’s spectacular features don’t stop there with an 80-square metre gym and an additional wellness centre and pool that’s water is cleverly warmed with the wasted heat captured from the generators.

Designed by Studio de Voogt and Remi Tessier, this innovative yacht has been created with a leave no trace philosophy. This is best displayed in the yacht’s clever dynamic positioning system that ensures the boat doesn’t damage the seabed when it drops the anchor. Bliss is also powered by diesel-electric propulsion with a large battery bank that offers a 100 per cent electric power source. With a large swimming pool and futuristic helideck that converts into a sports and games deck, Bliss is undeniably one of the coolest new additions to the Boating International list.

This superyacht is not just capturing the attention of boat enthusiasts but of fashion lovers too. With an interior designed by the talented Peter Marino, also known for designing the flagship stores for Armani, Chanel and Louis Vuitton, the boat’s interior design has been described as almost architectural. At an impressive 94 metres in length, Viva isn’t one that comes cheap with a total value of A$247 million.

The final addition to the list is Zen, a superyacht reportedly commissioned by Amazon founder Jeff Bezos. The 127m yacht is set to become the largest sailing yacht in the world next year but until then its designers are determined to keep the yacht’s interiors a mystery. With Zen’s stylists having signed a non-disclosure agreement, we’re going to be waiting eagerly for the final reveal.
