Best of 2022

2022 was a strange year, Covid-19 looked more like influenza second version, and finally we learnt to live with it without masks, and then humans continue to show the way of destruction with a war returning in central Eastern Europe after many years.  In the meantime the yachting World has been busy presenting new models; some innovative breaking the rule book, while others update what has been written before into the year.  Here is PowerYachtBlog 2022 favorites. 

The Best of 2022 for PowerYacht is the new Sanlorenzo SP110.  Under Massimo Perotti Sanlorenzo has turned from a conservative name to become one of the most innovative thinkers in the motor yachting World. So how to build your first super sport yacht of 33 meters?  With a different design, and standing out from the rest with an un-edited vertical loft.  Sanlorenzo first super sport yacht, the SP110 has been four years or more in the making directed by a who's who list of people knowing a thing or two about making a class leading act.

The others.  

Apreamare 45 Gozzo. The third and largest model of the Gozzo line which debuted in 2017 gives what the two previous smaller models missed, cruising accommodation with aplenty day cruising abilities.  

Austin Parker 85 Ibiza. The largest ever build by the Italian builder, it is not sport yacht re-invented, more found again.  Looking like a massive centre console with its long big bow.  

Benetti B.Yond 37m. There is a lot of important news in this semi custom triple deck super yacht. It was the last design from Stefano Righini, and a steel Benetti sub forty meters in many years.

Grand Banks EastBay 60. Its the first EastBay to come with Mark Richards efficient hull shape following nearly thirty years of Raymond Hunt bottoms.  Classic looks with range and efficiency, the EastBay 60 give this and more.

Jarrett Bay 56 Open Convertible hull #67. For decades custom sportfish builders offered the same style, but in the last ten or so years we have seen a change in this. This sixteen meter is a flybridge sportfish yacht with the feel of an express, from one of Carolina's most respected names.

Overmarine Mangusta 165 Rev. Igor Lebanov is renewing Mangusta successful sport yacht fleet, and here he renews the fifty meter flagship which sold twelve units in thirteen years.  The hull is the same, but the rest is totally new including of which is a forward main deck owners stateroom.  

Rizzardi GR SessantaTre. Today most sport yachts above fifteen meters are enclosed.  This new nineteen meter Rizzardi is a return to the real Mediterrean open sport yacht, with traditional propulsion, central engine position, and a guest VIP suite aft.

Tiara EX60. The largest ever yacht build in Michigan.  For a precise production yacht it offers a lot of options, and offers what Tiara did with the Coupe series, a Down-East lobster boat feel into that of a modern sport yacht. 

Doing different. Fiart P54. A sport yacht with the outside area spanning the whole sixteen meters size, in three split levels without losing any lower deck accommodation. Fiart did break design rules in 2021 with the Cetera 60, and here they go again with what is there bread and butter open yacht with an unusual offer.

PowerYacht wishes to all its followers, friends, readers, and visitors a Healthy and Prosperous 2023 year.
