blogger - 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, an innovative open super sport yacht of 33 meters with a different design, standing out with its vertical loft.  Four years or more in the making the SP110 was 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. This is not a fully fresh product but it gives what the two previous small Gozzo missed, a day boat with a cruising potential platform.

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 Grand Banks 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 to fifteen years we have seen a change in this.  The sixteen meter Jarrett Bay hull #67 is a flybridge with the feel of an express, showing the innovation coming from Carolina.

Overmarine Mangusta 165 Rev.  Igor Lebanov is renewing Mangusta successful sport yacht fleet, and here he is tasked in renewing 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.  The EX60 like the Coupe series offers a DownEast lobster boat feel with a modern design. 

Doing it 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 usual open yacht offer.

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