Despite the fact that many major yacht shows were cancelled in 2020, shipbuilders and designers continued to launch new exotic superyachts and state-of-the-art expedition ships, and produced incredible designs that topped all yachting ratings. Fortunately, our luxury international magazine was able to witness these majestic marine beasts in action this year at the Monaco Yacht Show.

Please enjoy our hand-picked selection of the most incredible yachts that have ever been featured or will soon be featured in the show:


Apho, the world’s 63rd largest superyacht, is a 115-metre beauty built for a returning customer who previously owned an 86-metre Lürssen. The yacht has it all, from high-quality design to cutting-edge engineering systems, as well as seagoing comfort for a family vacation. Apho’s exterior and interior design were created by Nuvolari-Lenard, giving it a distinct appearance. The yacht is outfitted for a healthy and family-oriented lifestyle on board, with several sports and activity facilities on board, including an extra-large gym on the sky lounge deck and a large wellness room on the lower deck. Apho was designed to sail to her destinations in luxury, and the yacht, like all Lürssens, is outfitted with everything needed to pursue one’s maritime dreams. It’s easy to see why this yacht has been dubbed this year’s “queen of the show.”

The Artefact

This superyacht is a tribute to not only industry, but also to humanity. Built to withstand any harsh conditions the seas and oceans can throw at it, the Artefact considers both nature and its owners. The Artefact, equipped with solar panels and a battery storage system that allows the vessel to operate for a limited time without using its internal combustion engines, allows you to ride the waves carbon-free while surviving the harshest challenges the marine vasts can present. This is a more refined version of the G-Wagon designed for sea travel. The yacht is contemporary, with an elegant design that has drew everyone’s attention to its distinctive features. The Artefact, at 2.999 GT, is now the world’s largest-volume 80-metre superyacht, with a floor-to-ceiling glass central section and 740 square metres of curved and expressive glasswork. It’s no surprise that the BlackBerry’s father, Michalis Lazaridis, is the proud owner of this beauty.


The Azteca was designed by Italian naval architects Nuvolari & Lenard, who styled its capacious interiors and prowling lines out of pure steel and aluminium with a dash of old-school elegance. The yacht is built with love and to the exacting standards of an experienced sailor, thanks to the sophisticated taste of owner Ricardo Salinas Pliego, who named it after his own network, TV Azteca. The prestigious superyacht can accommodate 16 guests in eight cabins, including an owner’s suite with a fold-down balcony. The yacht has a grand main saloon area that hosts a piano and a generous lounge area. A separate dining room, a full-beam sky lounge, a separate cinema room, and even an elevator are also available. The yacht is as timeless as a masterfully crafted watch that continues to tick with shades of sophistication, becoming more and more unrivalled with each hour struck.
