Superyacht Season

From the impossibly fast to the adventurous, these superyachts are pushing the limits of speed and capability


Intertwining sophistication with adventure, Damen’s SeaXplorer 75 will have thrill seekers clamoring to get aboard. Debuting new renderings at the Monaco Yacht Show this past September, Damen has the masses full of anticipation. The Ice Class and Polar Code-compliant yacht, with full capability for remote destinations, is truly a one-of-a-kind vessel, taking you to the farthest, wildest reaches of Earth while maintaining full autonomy and capability at sea for 40 days. For go-getters, the vessel becomes a hive of activity, branching over three decks of comfort while also sporting a dive center, certified helideck and helicopter hangar, and two tender garages. The observation lounge will become a go-to spot for stunning views. Guests will be able to enjoy the height of luxury in an owner’s apartment and two VIP cabins. Adventures await on the SeaXplorer.

Heesen, never a shipyard to step down from a challenge, has unveiled its new project, Cosmos. After a buyer’s rep approached the Dutch company with the idea of unimaginable speeds, Heesen’s engineers got down to business with creating and executing plans for a sleek superyacht, or perhaps more appropriately, a gigayacht. The aluminum vessel with four MTU diesel engines capable of reaching up to 29 knots will be blowing other yachts out of the water. Dutch yacht interior design firm Sinot incorporated naturalistic elements, plus a striking, central spiral staircase wrapped around an all-glass elevator that glides up and down all four floors. Guests will enjoy style and comfort in four cabins, a VIP stateroom, and a master suite. Other features include a 3,000 sq. ft. deck, which can be transformed into a helideck, and a glass-bottom swimming pool. The plans are slowly becoming a reality, with the first sales this past March anda delivery date of April 2022.
