Farther & Faster
If you long to travel farther while still going relatively fast, the Germán Frers–designed Sirena 58 Coupé will exceed your expectations: It has a range of about 850 nautical miles at 10 knots, plus a top speed approaching 30 knots. Unusual for this size range, the yacht also offers a two-cabin option where your suite has a hidden stairway leading to the foredeck, serving as a private alfresco lounge. Plus, you get to choose the woods and fabrics used throughout the decor.

Length: 60 ft., 10 in.  |  Beam: 17 ft., 6 in.  |  Draft: 4 ft., 1 in.  |  Staterooms: 2–3  |  Engine: Twin 650-hp or 850-hp Caterpillars  | Top Speed: 27–30 knots

Illuminate the Seas
The world is your oyster with Luminosity, a new custom yacht from Benetti whose impressive 8,000-nautical-mile range at 10 knots means you can cross oceans with enough reserve to explore far-flung shores. You’ll be inspired by the excerpt from Moby Dick engraved on the main lounge’s pillars and the 3,983-square-foot video wall stretching the height of the main lobby’s stairway that depicts a forest whose branches gently sway as you pass. Luminosity also has 10-foot-high windows to bring the outdoors in, along with a spa containing a Turkish bath and a sauna.

Length: 353 ft.  |  Beam: 55 ft., 8 in.  |  Draft: 14 ft., 9 in.  |  Staterooms: 12  |  Engine: 6 Caterpillar C32 diesels with ABB Azipod  |  Top Speed: 16.5 knots

Eco Boost
Sunreef Yachts understands that today’s yacht owners are more environmentally conscious, which is why the shipyard created an Eco version of its popular 80 Sunreef Power catamaran. With solar panels, an ultralight battery bank and electric engines, the 80 Sunreef Power Eco was engineered to consume less fuel (it does have diesel generators for convenience) while making very little noise. A kite sail is an option too. Ethically sourced woods are available for the interior, which sleeps up to eight comfortably. The wide stance makes the open floor plan of the main deck feel even more spacious.

Length: 78 ft., 1 in.  |  Beam: 39 ft., 4 in.  |  Draft: 5 ft., 6 in.  | Staterooms: 5  |  Engine: Various twin electric motors  |  Top Speed: 15 knots (all-electric propulsion) and 22 knots (hybrid)
