Get ready for the boating season with our list of the five best yachts to invest in 2018

With sunnier weather approaching our beloved city, it’s time to hit the waters again, and in what better style than in a plush and powerful yacht?

Be it first-time buyers or seasoned owners looking for an upgrade, our recommendation of the top five best yachts in the market has you covered for this boating season!

Ferretti 850

Ferretti Yachts 850 is designed to dazzle from the moment you first set eyes on it, thanks to its clean and dynamic profile featuring striking, clear-cut angles. Its seductive appearance is just the beginning: the yacht itself combines extraordinary comfort with sophisticated design. Complete with a flybridge, a swimming platform and discreet luxuries in true-blue Italian style, the Ferretti 850 is for keeps!

Galeon 500 Fly

Awarded the European Powerboat of 2016, the Galeon 500 Fly inherits the same luxurious sophistication that is at the core of Galeon’s DNA. Highly customisable, the Galeon 500 Fly offers three separate customisations in cockpit arrangements. The best part? All three customisations allow the unique beach mode, which extends the cockpit area by six metres by dropping the port and starboard sides.

Manhattan 52

 The new Manhattan 52 by Sunseeker is defined by innovative design and spacious living quarters. Its roomy sitting areas and well-lighted entertainment spaces are particularly rare in other flybridge motoryachts of the same size. The beautiful curved glass is designed filter in more light, making the yacht seem more spacious than its competitors. Not for nothing has it been announced as a winner at the 2017 Motor Boat Awards in the ‘Flybridges up to 55ft’ category.

Crystal 140’

Crystal 140’ is a classic Bennetti in every component. With exteriors being conceptualised by designer Stefano Righini and the interiors being designed by François Zuretti, each element of this superyacht is steeped in Italian aesthetics. Add to that the six spacious owner cabins and five crew cabins, with ample living and dining space, and you have a gigantic water beast that is meant to rule the seas!

Riva Corsaro 100’

 When the Riva Corsaro 100’ was unveiled in Hong Kong last year, it marked a new chapter in the brand’s 175-year-old history: this was the first time a Riva yacht had been launched in Asia! The flybridge yacht has already become a hit with Hong Kong yacht lovers, thanks to its perfect blend of comfort, technology and luxury. Fitting with its name ‘Corsaro’ (which means pirate in Italian), the yacht is shaped like an arrowhead with large windows offering panoramic views of open vistas. The flybridge yacht may just have hit the Asian markets a year ago, but it seems it’s here to stay (or rather, slay).

So no worries if you have missed The Hong Kong International Boat Show last December. Check out our five best yachts at the Thailand Yacht Show from 22 to 25 February 2018.
