Forty new yacht builds launched in a world premiere, an unbeatable collection of 125 superyachts, forty tenders and toys, and the new car deck await the 30,000 potential visitors arriving in the Principality for this year’s Monaco Yacht Show.
We spoke to Kent Chamberlain, CEO of Chamberlain Yachts and yachting industry veteran, to discuss THE best new yachts to look out for at the show. As an established yacht broker with over 35 years in the industry, Kent is the go-to broker for latest superyachts on the market. Here are five new 2016 yachts he will be aboard at the Monaco Yacht Show.
This Wider, diesel electric 46 metre super yacht runs of 6 generators to offer an unique and economical long range cruising vessel. Genesis has a range of 5000 nm thanks to 6 generators that run her including 2 electric motors, the primary drivers and 4 generators to drive that, with the back up of a 544 KW battery pack.
“This is an unique offering from Wider gives lower fuel burn, greater range and less pollution” Kent Chamberlain explained. “The yacht offers an open design, lots of side opening doors, a fantastic 90m2 aft beach area including a full walk around to a 7 metre pool.”
There is a jacuzzi on the fly bridge, balconies on main salon and master forward which again gives to the al fresco feel to this beautiful new superyacht.
Divine is a Hybrid Palumbo Superyacht powered by two MTU engines, but can switch to pure diesel electric. It’s a boat that can travel at 23 knots on main engines and can run purely off the battery as well. The design is very modern and allows for balconies on both sides. Like Genesi there is an open air environment – really opens up to the extent port starboard and afterdeck is large. It was designed as a sport deck yacht and has 5 cabins.
“Hot Lab Yacht & Design won World Superyachts Award & Showboats Design Awards 2016 award for this boat for interior design” explains Kent.
“A 39.9 metre yacht by Tansu Yachts known for very stout sort of military looking designs,” said Kent “and this is no exception”
This brand new yacht created with Diana Yacht Design a well reputed organisation.
Built by the Lynx the Dutch shipyard, this shadow yacht selling for just over 2 million, is a support vessel that can carry tender and toys and additional crew.
“It allows you to have a smaller vessel for the guests allowing you to get in an out of smaller ports than if you could in a larger boat. Plus it is more efficient even though there are two boats.”
Beautiful new Amels 180 yacht from a yacht with respect in the industry for quality build. This 55 metre was designed by Heywood Design with interiors by designer Laura Sessa. It is a larger superyacht than the others with lots of outdoor space.
“It is a cool new boat by a noticeable yard”, said Kent.
Don’t miss out on the Car Deck which is new to the Monaco Yacht Show 2016. Dedicated to luxury automobiles, the exhibition space aims to capitalise on the interest in high-end cars that superyacht owners bring to streets of Monaco every year during the show.
