Videos of 100+ metre superyachts, 53-knot commissions and owner interviews were the order of the day in October. Catch up with the most read news of the last month here.
Vanquish Superyachts, sister company to Vanquish Yachts in the Netherlands, has been commissioned by a repeat client to build the yard’s first 'Vanquish VQ115' superyacht. The high-performance 35-metre vessel will be one of the fastest on the water with a top speed of 53 knots.
When this video dropped of the 107-metre Benetti superyacht Lana in early October, thousands of people rushed to get a look at the jaw-dropping new addition to the charter market. Hosted by Imperial, Lana had just enjoyed a successful summer season and was gearing up for her first winter season in the Indian Ocean.
Designed by Andrea Vallicelli with interior styling by Pierluigi Floris, this 36-metre motor yacht project was overseen by Antonio Longobardi and Gianluca Fenucci of Yachting Expertise. SuperYacht Times met with the owners in Milan just before they were due to rejoin their new yacht in Greece.
For the fully-custom design of the 55.5-meter project 13800, Bannenberg & Rowell Design were inspired by the 1973 classic Lürssen yacht The One. Inside, she is said to feature an "interesting" interior design that uses a "fearless use of colours and textures and museum-quality furniture pieces."
Our most read story of the month was about one of the largest superyachts currently under construction in the Netherlands: the 118-metre Feadship 1010. Unveiled for the first time in October as the vessel emerged from its metal construction facility near Rotterdam, project 1010 will now be transported to Feadship's outfitting yard in Makkum where the builder has completed some of its largest superyachts over the years.
