Riva El-Iseo

Added May 2024

Riva El-Iseo

This may be the most beautiful tender you can find in the world. This short review will let you know that we are absolutely crazy about this electric boat.


Maxi Dolphin 70 Power

Added April 2024

A quick look at the Maxi Dolphin 70 Power

If we were asked to choose one single motorboat for life (and that it was not a trawler), then most likely it would be something like the MD70 Power from an Italian shipyard that also builds beautiful sailboats. It is difficult to overestimate the aesthetic pleasure that you can get from this fast and elegant 21.6-meter yacht.


Terra Nauta 40

Added April 2024

Terra Nauta 40

A vision of an Italian classic from a Croatian shipyard that needs no description. Terra Nauta motorboats are not only beautiful, but also perform well in any weather. The demand for these boats exceeds the shipyard’s supply, and it is easy to see why this is so.


Selene 72 Ocean Explorer

Added March 2024

Selene Trawler Yacht 72 Ocean Explorer

Absolutely every Selene trawler yacht deserves to be on this list. But the range of boats from this shipyard is too large to add them all. Therefore, after consulting briefly, we decided to limit ourselves to one of the culmination models – Ocean Explorer 72.

Generally speaking, when we see any trawler, we want to run around and wag our tail, but when we see the Selene trawler, we instantly fall into a meditative state of contemplation.


Super Lauwersmeer SLX54

Added February 2024

Super Lauwersmeer SLX54

This amazing 17-meter boat was first presented by the Dutch shipyard in 2023. The yacht is so unique that there is nothing to compare it with. Moreover, it seems to be not only one of the most beautiful, but also one of the most comfortable flybridge boats in the world.


Elling E4

Added February 2024

Elling E4

We have taken Elling yachts out into rough seas several times and can confidently say that these boats are probably one of the most reliable and safe in their size range. This semi-displacement 15-meter yacht is Category A and is capable of self-righting when capsized. In addition, it is incredibly spacious inside and very quiet even at full speed. What else do you need?

Oh, yes, of course, the appearance. Well, it turns out that reliable and seaworthy boats are always beautiful and vice versa. And the E4 model was unanimously recognized as the coolest of the three in the shipyard’s range.


Sialia 57

Sialia 57

We immediately fell in love with this boat at first sight. Besides the incredible color combination, this semi-custom electric yacht is well proportioned and very pleasing to the eye. You can read more about this yacht here.


J Craft 42 Torpedo

J Craft Torpedo 42

These are completely unique classic boats from the Swedish shipyard that instantly convey a sense of understated luxury and timeless style. The quality of these boats is so high that it is not just tangible, it is in the air around them. Naturally, all of the above are the main components of incredible beauty, the possession of which is very exclusive.


Sasga Menorquín 55 HT

Sasga Menorquín 55 HT

All Sasga boats are very attractive, but the absolute majority of votes were given to this model. There is probably no need to explain why Sasga is on the list of the most beautiful yachts under 24 meters.


Archipelago 47

Archipelago 47

Yes, it’s a catamaran. And yes, we don’t really like multihulls. However, we made an exception for Archipelago because… Well, this catamaran is very cool. That’s why we even wrote an article about him. It compares favorably with all other motor catamarans not only with its beautiful design and color combination, but also with its aluminum hull.


Apreamare Gozzo 45

Apreamare Gozzo 45

The most charming boats are always heirs to old traditions. The Apreamare shipyard demonstrates this perfectly by building its models, which clearly trace the history coming from the classic Italian fishing boats.


Proton 28

Proton 28

The perfect tender from Proton Yachting that would not exist without Trimm Design. There is also a model in light brown, but it was this model in blue that won. It seems difficult to come up with something more elegant.


Zeelander Z72

Zeelander Z72

These are unique Dutch-built sports cruisers. All three models of the line differ only in size, maintaining the general philosophy of the shipyard. From our point of view, Zeelander yachts are simply synonymous with luxury.


Mulder Favorite 1700

Mulder Favorite 1700

Of course, the Favorite 1500 series from this famous shipyard should also be here. Honestly, absolutely any yacht ever built by the shipyard can be added to this list. In addition to their incredible beauty, these yachts are class A. Of course, there is no doubt about their seaworthiness, since Vripack worked on the naval architecture.


Spirit P70

Spirit P70

An excellent example of a modern classic, using the latest construction technologies and the most advanced onboard equipment.


Wallypower 58

Wallypower 58

Futuristic design in the yachting world is rarely beautiful. Usually it’s the other way around. However, the Wallypower 58 boat looks great and was unanimously accepted for this list.


Rivamare

Rivamare

As Riva states, this boat is the crown jewel of their shipyard. But she is also the crown jewel of our list of the most beautiful yachts in the world.


Wajer 55

Wajer Yachts

All Wajer yachts are amazing and almost all models received the same number of votes with a slight advantage towards open boats. So we just added a photo at random. Apparently, this is the 55th model. However, you should know that Wajer hardtop yachts are just as beautiful, if not more beautiful, than these luxurious open tenders.
