I departed the Monaco Yacht Show kicking myself for not getting a chance to look around Flying Fox. Some of the spaces on board – like that two-level saloon – have to be seen to be believed. Thankfully, where I failed, our deputy editor Caroline White succeeded and her world-exclusive story on this huge new Lürssen can be found in this issue. The 136-metre, 9,022GT boat slots into 14th place in our definitive listing of the world’s biggest superyachts – but takes the number-one position as the world’s largest yacht available for charter (just a crew of 55 to tip, then). The super-sizing of the world’s superyacht fleet shows no sign of slowing down. Ten years ago, the smallest boat to qualify for Top 101 status was 68-metre Aviva. Today, number 101 on our rundown is 85.47-metre Vibrant Curiosity. Lürssen alone has seven – seven! – 100-metre-plus projects in build. And Feadship is moving up in the size stakes too, with an 118-metre project in the sheds. There’s whispers, too, of other massive, top-secret projects out there.
