By Oliver Pearson   28 December 2017

Rounding-up some of the hottest deliveries of the year, we countdown the 5 largest charter yachts which were launched in 2017. If this wasn’t inspiring enough, we also reveal where you can expect to enjoy them in 2018.

There’s no denying that when it comes to motor yachts and sailing yachts, bigger is very often better. Indeed, with more space available, designers are able to integrate even more special features and extras, leaving guests with plenty of space in which to enjoy them.

When it come to a private yacht charter vacation, then, it is certainly worth considering something a little larger if you are planning to get away with a big group of friends and family.

Of course, if there’s one thing as exciting as a big superyacht, it’s a new superyacht. With this in mind, we’ve compiled a list of 5 of the largest superyachts which were launched this year.

Boasting high-gloss finishes on the exterior and a warm range of furnishings around the interior, the motor yacht is unquestionably inviting and an incredible place to unwind whilst taking in some exceptional surroundings.

With a lengthy sundeck bar and Jacuzzi to enjoy in the sun, and a multi-functional skylounge to retire to, those on board have access to an intimate world of luxury.

A totally innovative superyacht which quickly won the award for ‘Best Interior Design 164-270ft’ at the World Yacht Trophies 2017, there can be no denying that the 52m/171ft luxury yacht ‘Seven Sins’ is something special.

Of course, the feature which continues to get people talking is the glass encased swimming pool on the aft which forms the ceiling of the beach club below.

Furnished with a variety of comfortable sofas and seating, this beach club ultimately serves as the central social hub on board the superyacht.

As well as being one of the largest charter yachts launched this year, Seven Sins is also one of the most revolutionary

Besides the enormous and superbly designed beach club, Seven Sins also features a full-size bar on the sundeck which serves up endless refreshments throughout the day.

As well as a well-proportioned master suite, there is also a VIP cabin, 2 doubles, and 1 convertible to sleep up to 12 guests in total.

With boarding and disembarking carried out with the help of a 8m tender, guests can be assured of getting between the yacht and the mainland in style. Next year, she is expected to be available for charter in the Mediterranean.
