Superyacht Content’s Top 5 of 2020
Let’s be honest 2020 has not been the best year. Added to the lack of a Monaco Yacht show it’s been a bit grim. But let’s try to look on the bright side as we review our top 5 Superyachts launched in 2020.
La Datcha, 77 Meters, Built by Damen Yachting

One of the most anticipated yachts of 2020, La Datcha, the first SeaXplorer 77 from Damen Yachting. We love her rugged looks and fact she has not one, but 2 helicopters with the hanger space for both. Also on board is a custom painted Triton Submersible, jet skis and snowmobiles. All that plus the Ice class certification means she is good for exploring in the high latitudes or making your way through the pacific islands.
Nord, 142 Meters, Built by Lurssen

Just Wow…. was the first thing that sprang to mind when I first saw this yacht. The scale and presence is unbelievable. Room for 36 guests in 20 cabins with all design all round by Nuvolari Lenard. She has a large swimming pool on the main deck, a diving centre, 2 helipads and retractable hanger to keep the chopper warm at night. She also has some pretty fancy exterior lighting effects which hopefully we will get to see some more of.
Soaring, 68 Meters, Abeking & Rasmussen

Another great build by Abeking & Rasmussen with design by Focus Yacht Design. She looks a lot smaller than her 68 meters but that only adds to the great look of this yacht. It’s your pretty standard 12 guests in 6 cabins with an owners suite on upper deck aft, Tender garages up forward and nice sized beach club aft with gym, steam room, spa and access to all the water toys at the swim platform.
Totally Nuts, 49.65 Meters, Feadship

Well I had to put this in if only for the name, but just look at it… Take note people “your yacht doesn’t need to be 500 meters long to be cool”. Mooted to be the fastest Feadship built thanks to her Wartsila Jet Propulsion system, with speeds of up to 48 knots+ being touted but wont be confirmed until after sea trial data has been made public. Designed by Sinot Yacht Architecture and Design and isn’t she a little beauty!
Ragnar, 68 Meters, Icon Yachts
This yacht is a beast. At only 68 meters she is the same length as Soaring that we looked at earlier. But with a 14 meter beam and the 6 decks this is one imposing vessel. Classed as a true Icebreaker this really is a go anywhere yacht. Pictured here during her maiden voyage in Greenland we expect this yacht to spend a lot of time in the high latitudes. Available for charter with Burgess she has room for 12 guests along with 4 tenders, 4 jet skis, 4 Snow Mobiles and what can only be described as a tank (see below) which by the way also floats and propels itself in the water using its tyres.
Converted from an Ice breaking supply ship by Icon yachts in a little over 2 years this yacht will get you where you need to go and in the comfort and style you would expect from a superyacht.
Well that’s our 5 for 2020. Do you have a different top 5? If so send it to firstname.lastname@example.org and we may publish yours.
