As we say goodbye to 2020, it’s time to get excited for the new year and all the opportunities it brings. From new design trends to emerging innovations, there’s plenty of reasons to celebrate the superyacht industry in 2021 and that’s especially true when it comes to superyacht builds.
Whilst the global economy significantly suffered last year across a range of industries, the superyacht industry remained stable and in some cases, even saw a boost.
As the Australian company Rivergate explains, “In line with the rise in disposable income and an appetite for bespoke experiences, the charter industry is enjoying a surge of interest, fuelled in part by social media and the visibility of celebrities enjoying sojourns at sea…In Australia and the South Pacific, charter is enjoying a rise in popularity as people realise it’s a safe and hassle-free means of exploring the beauty that Australia has to offer” (2020).
Considering the boost in popularity and strength of the industry, particularly within certain markets, it’s an exciting and ideal time for superyachts to be completed and launched onto a thriving market.
And, that’s why we’ve carefully curated this list of builds which are set for completion this year. Enjoy!
