As a relatively new event helping to kick off the superyacht summer season, the second edition of The Superyacht Show is now on the horizon. Created by members of LYBRA (the Large Yacht Brokers Association) and taking place at OneOcean Port Vell in the heart of Barcelona between 8-11th May this year, we take a look at the largest yachts which will be on display during this event.
1. Maltese Falcon (88m) Photo: Merijn de Waard / SuperYacht TimesTopping our list of yachts at The Superyacht Show at 88 metres is the unmistakable sailing yacht Maltese Falcon. A truly iconic yacht, she is famous for her sophisticated automated square rigged DynaRig sail plan. Three towering free-standing rotating carbon-fibre masts hold 25,800 square feet of canvas on 15 square sails for exceptional performance, speed and manoeuvrability. Indeed, she is one of the fastest sailing superyachts in the world and frequently takes part in superyacht regattas. Built by Perini Navi in 2006, she was sold to her current owner in 2009.
2. Valerie (85.1m)Photo: IYC YachtsA worthy second place goes to the 85.1-metre Lürssen superyacht, Valerie. Completed in 2011 and undergoing refit works last year, the motor yacht had a fresh paint job earlier this month. As well as a helicopter deck, gym, spa and beauty salon, Valerie's tender inventory will soon include a 2019 10-metre X-Tender Beach lander and a 2019 10-metre Pascoe Landau Open Limo Tender. Valerie's exterior design is by Espen Øeino, with interiors by British studio Reymond Langton Design and she is currently listed for sale for an asking price of €170,000,000.
Motor yacht Secret comes in at third on our list. Currently listed for sale at an asking price of €119,000,000 after being with her original owner for five years and completing a world tour shortly after delivery, Secret was completed as Abeking & Rasmussen’s largest yacht at the time of her launch in 2013. Built to a design by Sam Sorgiovanni and with an interior by J.W Harris, she underwent a full repaint in 2017. Up to 13 guests can be accommodated on board Secret across a master stateroom and six guest cabins. New photos of Secret's truly distinctive interior were recently unveiled on SuperYacht Times.
4. Eminence (78.43m)Photo: Stuart PearceJust missing out on being in the top three is the 78.43-metre motor yacht Eminence which is another Abeking & Rasmussen build from 2008. Eminence is built with long-distance travels in mind, with a transatlantic range of 6,350 nautical miles at an eco-speed of 11.6 knots. Twin Caterpillar 3516 diesel engines give her a top speed of 16 knots and a cruising speed of 14 knots. Amenities on board include a cinema, Jacuzzi, spa and sauna, and a fully-equipped gym and she comes with a wide selection of water toys. Eminence is currently listed as a yacht for sale at €80,000,000.
5. Solo (72m)Photo: Blueiprod
Taking the middle point in the list is the 72-metre Tankoa-built superyacht Solo. With her hotly-anticipated launch taking place last August, she made her debut at last year's Monaco Yacht Show. With both exterior and interior design by Francesco Paszkowski, Solo started life almost ten years ago as a sister ship to 69-metre Suerte. With the project put on hold due to the global financial crisis in 2008, Solo was eventually sold in 2016, with Paszkowski and the studio's interior designer Margherita Caspirini revisiting the exterior styling and interior layouts to bring the project up to date and to create the vessel we see today. Find out more about the fascinating story behind Solo's redesign here. Solo is listed for sale for €71,500,000.
6. Lady Christine (68m) Next up is our first Feadship: the 68-metre Lady Christine. Currently owned by one of the most experienced yachties in the world, the famous competitive racer, Lord Irvine Laidlaw, Lady Christine has an exterior design by De Voogt and interiors by Struik & Hamerslag and Rodney Black Design Studios. Accommodating 10 guests and up to 19 crew across one master suite, four guest suites and 10 crew cabins, Lady Christine is listed for sale at $69,000,000.
7. Anna I (67m)

Living a solitary life since her launch back in 2007, the motor yacht is currently listed for sale for €65,000,000. Designed inside and out by Michael Leach, Anna I includes a split-level master suite with upper deck viewing lounge, and a wellness centre on the upper deck complete with gym, massage room and marble steam room. Thanks to twin 2682 HP Caterpillar engines, she can reach a top speed of 16.7 knots and has a generous range of 5,100 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 13 knots.
8. Triple Seven (66.7m)Photo: Bruno Buisson / SuperYacht TimesThe 66.7-metre Triple Seven is a 2006-built Nobiskrug yacht with exteriors and interiors by German studio Newcruise. Since delivery, Triple Seven has toured the world extensively and has space to house up to 12 guests across an owner's suite, three doubles and one twin suite. Twin Diesel 2360 HP engines enable her to reach a maximum speed of 17 knots and cruise comfortably at 15 knots. The motor yacht is listed for sale at €44,900,000.
9. New Hampshire (62m) Photo: Cecil Wright & PartnersOur third and final entry from Feadship is the 62-metre New Hampshire. This classically-profiled motor yacht was delivered in 2005 and has had the previous names Rasselas and Positive Carry. With naval architecture and exterior design by De Voogt, New Hampshire underwent maintenance works at the Pendennis Shipyard in Falmouth during 2017-8. The boat's interior is as classic as her exterior and comes from the drawing boards of Pannagan Design. Her expansive outdoor areas also include space for a helicopter and she accommodates 12 guests across six cabins. New Hampshire is listed for sale at €44,950,000.
10. Seahawk (60m)Photo: Francesco FerriFinally, we have the second sailing yacht to make our list, the 60-metre Seahawk. Built in 2013 by Perini Navi, the all-aluminium Seahawk features in-house exterior design, an interior by French studio Liaigre and naval architecture by the shipyard in collaboration with Ron Holland Design. Part of the 60m series of sailing superyachts from Perini Navi, this modern ketch has a gross tonnage of 491 and can reach a maximum speed of 15.5 knots and a cruising speed of 12.5 knots. Seahawk is currently listed for sale at €32,000,000.
