The Top 100 Superyachts 2010

June 12, 2009 by Yachtie
View large version of image: The Top 100 Superyachts 2010

For the Top 100 Superyachts in 2010, there are only six new yachts in the world’s largest yacht list, down from the 15 mega yachts which joined the ranks in 2009. The 6 new superyachts in the top 100 list means the average length of the world’s largest 100 superyacht has increased around one meter to just over 84 meters ( 276’11”). The largest newly launched yacht in 2009 was the 360’10” (110m) motor yacht Dilbar and in 2008 the biggest new superyacht launched was M/Y Al Said at 508’6” (155m).

Only time will tell if the world economic recession is to blame for the fewer entries this year, or if it will have a lasting impact on mega yachts being ordered or built. Some may argue that yachts launched this year were actually ordered a few years ago, and so if there was an economic downturn impact on new yacht orders and the size of yachts launched, this will manifest itself in two or three years time, rather than in 2010. Either way, it is well established that the yacht’s owners, which are some of the wealthiest individuals in the world, have lost money in the credit crisis along with everyone else.

It should be noted that this list is ranked in terms of yacht length. There are of course other ways to measure a yacht’s size, such as weight, displacement or square meters of deck space, however length is the traditional, if somewhat flawed, measure of yacht size.

It is important to note that the list doesn’t include luxury ‘mini cruise ships’ or yachts built exclusively for yacht charter, rather it focuses on private yachts. Superyachts in the second variety are noted at the end. Also, it should be noted that motor yacht Eclipse at 548′22″ (167.1) in length and owned by Roman Abramovich will be the largest when she is launched in late 2009.
