With easing lockdown restrictions in most countries coupled with resumption of the overall tourism industry and a consistently growing number of HNWI, the yacht charter market is expected to steady reach pre-COVID-19 levels by 2022
With easing lockdown restrictions in most countries coupled with resumption of the overall tourism industry and a consistently growing number of HNWI, the yacht charter market is expected to steady reach pre-COVID-19 levels by 2022 (according to GlobeNewsWire). The number of new superyacht sales declined by 17% in 2020 compared to 2019. Sales of new-builds which were started on speculation declined by 20%, while sales of bespoke new-build projects declined by only 7%. (superyachttimes, the state of yachting 2021). However, it has been found that new-build sales recovered rapidly after “hitting a low in the second quarter of 2020. In fact, the fourth quarter was one of the best of recent years with close to 70 new yacht sales. Sales so far in 2021 have also started well and the usually strong third quarter is yet to come.” (SuperYachtTimes). Against 2020’s odds, shipyards around the world have persisted in their delivery of the latest and greatest superyachts of 2021. As the world begins to open up, and borders start to relax, we’ve taken the time to put together a list of the top 5 freshest charter yachts to the market…

4. Sanlorenzo’s CLOUD 9 (61.5m)
This impeccable Sanlorenzo 62 CLOUD 9 is as true to name as she is breathtaking. Launched in la Spezia last summer with the owner watching on remotely via livestream, CLOUD 9 was delivered into a time where she was so desperately needed as an escape from the post-pandemic world. The team at Casprini, tasked with her interior designer stated they were “looking to have a smooth, vintage effect everywhere,”. In so doing, the shared spaces, the dining room and the saloon are all in the same palatable theme, with soft and glossy detailing. Sanlorenzo describes the 62Steel as a formula, that provides close to everything the larger flagship offers. Whilst not a full custom build, it has many layout options that allow owners to select an interior that suits them. With a high summer rate of €600,000 per week and a low rate of €525,000, CLOUD 9 is based all year round in Port Hercule in Monaco, welcoming charters of up to 12 guests.
