The global superyacht fleet is always on the move, and as the Mediterranean season warms up, more and more yachts are making a beeline to these iconic coasts. BOAT keeps track of some of the most famous yachts in the world, spotting them in locations such as the the Cote d’Azur, the River Thames and Gibraltar.
Bold in Dubai
BOLD is a born explorer and has been on the move since the day she left the SilverYachts shipyard in 2019. From Australia to Fiji and Papua New Guinea, to Canada and across the Indian Ocean, she has racked up more than 90,000 nautical miles circumnavigating the globe. Her latest adventure has seen the 85.3 metre explorer drop anchor in Dubai where her guests could observe the regatta action unfolding at the Dubai Sail GP event – the first to be held in the Middle East. The Espen Øino design may resemble a battleship but conceals a colourful interior behind her aggressive lines and tinted windows.
Dragonfly in The Netherlands
After checking in for a refit at an unknown shipyard in Harlingen at the beginning of the year, the 73.3 metre Dragonfly has been spotted on the move. Not one often found sitting still in a shipyard, Dragonfly started 2021 exploring Indonesia’s Lesser Sunda Islands, moving northwards to West Papua and crossing the pacific to the Galapagos and Costa Rica, before making passage across the Atlantic to Harlingen. Her slender form is the work of Espen Øino and she is the second of two sisterships from Australian shipyard SilverYachts.
Blue Jeans in London
The latest launch from Van der Valk made a trip to London on its maiden voyage from the Dutch shipyard. Her custom lapis-blue hull stood out against the grey skies of the British capital as she posed for a picture in front of the iconic Tower Bridge. Highlights of the 33 metre include a sundeck firepit, a folding bulwark that doubles as a diving board, and a foredeck “chillout lounge” with sun pads tucked into the bow and a dining table that pops up from the deck.
Gene Machine and Gene Chaser in Miami
The 55 metre Amels Gene Machine and its Damen support vessel Gene Chaser have been spotted at Yacht Haven Grande Marina at Island Gardens in Miami. The two have been cruising in tandem since 2021 after its owner, Dr Jonathan Rothberg, purchased and refitted the Damen support vessel formerly known as Blue Ocean. In an interview, Rotherbeg said that Gene Machine is operated like a Four Seasons and Gene Chaser is run more like a Holiday Inn Express. Gene Machine carries a Fjord 42, pictured, and a Hatløy Maritime Oxpro AL8 landing craft. The 74 metre Lady Jorgia can also be seen moored side-to the pair.
