50 to 60 meter (164feet – 196feet) yachts deliver high levels of luxurious comfort and an abundance of on board space. Almost 80% of yachts in this size come at above 500GT and a displacement hull is most common, meaning large volumes and luxurious designs. Without the restraint of needing to stay under 500GT designers can go to town on packing in features and impressive spaces to create a yacht that really has the wow factor.
Usually welcoming up to 12 guests, yachts of 50 to 60 meter will typically have between five and seven cabins for guests and accommodation will usually include a generous VIP to complement the main Master suite. More space will often mean room for a private owner’s deck or suite, delivering added privacy. Generous accommodation allowances make yachts of this size a good choice for those looking to share their yacht with others, or for those considering a charter investment.
Up in the higher tier of yacht building, many yachts in the 50 to 60 meter size bracket will be the work of yards who specialise in custom builds. The roll call of builders working in this size bracket includes many of the world’s most celebrated superyacht shipyards such as: Abeking & Rasmussen, Amels, Benetti, Feadship, Heesen, Oceanco, Perini Navi, Trinity Yachts and Westport. These pedigree yards deliver an assurance of quality construction work and a timeless worldwide reputation that mean that their yachts hold their value well.
Expect a larger crew on a 50 to 60 meter (164feet – 196feet) yacht, for exceptional service levels, with the average yacht of this size having at least 12 crew on board and often more. With more crew, there is also the option to include specialist crew members in the team, such as a masseuse, nanny or dive instructor – all of this only adds to the overall superyacht experience.
There is always plenty of storage for toys and tenders on 50 to 60 meter yachts, and many yachts of this size will have a specific focus on the on-water lifestyle with large tender garages, beach clubs, oversized swimming platforms and of course a large inventory of water toys.
If you are looking for something striking or a little more out of the box this size category is where the options really start to get interesting, with many more custom designs available. Unrestrained from semi-custom or production models, designers can create something truly unique. Yachts of this size are often highly tailored to their owners, delivering a fully bespoke yachting experience.
With extra length and volume comes the opportunity for a host of added features. These might include elevators to deliver seamless movement throughout the vessel, or even a helipad for easy arrivals and departures. For owners with a particular passion or hobby, this extra space is often put to use creating dedicated hubs and facilities – these include fully equipped wellness lounges, on-water gyms, wine cellars and more.
