Tell us in the poll at the bottom of this article which one is your favorite!

Advanced A80 – 23.98 m – 2015

Advanced A80

The Italian shipyard’s flagship is one of the most modern boats of the lot. It was designed by John Reichel and Jim Pugh and Italian yacht designers Mario Pedol and Massimo Gino of Nauta Yachts. They opted for a rather sagging maximum beam, which ensured immense interior space while maintaining a streamlined deckhouse (here the signature of Italian studio Nauta is undeniable).

Alejandra – 41.33 m – 1993


Classic lines but modern lifestyle on board. Designed by Bruce King, this two-mast counts a powerful yet easily maneuverable sail plan. Over the years he has won numerous regattas and crossed the Atlantic dozens of times.

Ammonite – 24.86 m – 2016


The third model in Southern Wind shipyard’s 82-foot series is a carbon “beast” with a lifting keel. But Ammonite is also a raised saloon from which there is a 270-degree view, with warm interiors made of carbon and oak.

Dahlak – 38.15 m – 2016


The latest from Perini Navi bears the signature of Philippe Briand. Designed for fast and easy sailing, the yacht is constructed entirely of Sealium aluminum alloy and boasts several technical innovations, including electric captive winches built by Perini Navi and a lithium-polymer battery system for environmentally friendly and quiet sailing.

Emmaline – 32.50 m – 2003


It is the modern interpretation of the fast Bristol Channel Pilot Cutters. Built in 2003, she underwent a meticulous refit by the Holland Jachtbouw shipyard.

Inukshuk – 32.64 m – 2013


This Baltic 107 Inukshuk can count on an impressive power-to-weight ratio. It mounts a telescoping keel and an all-carbon boom. Internally, the forward section is entirely dedicated to the owner, while crew quarters are located aft. to ensure complete privacy.

Shamanna – 35.20 m – 2016

This Swan 115 S counts hull and deck, constructed using the infusion technique, of carbon fiber so as to ensure rigidity, strength and weight savings. German Frers designed a hull from a very long waterline (32.84 meters of the 35.20 of the overall length), with a generous maximum beam (8.12 m) and shifted aft.
