Thank you all for the emails about which yachts you would like to see. If you have any questions about any Mega Yachts please email us at Mega Yacht Global our contact can be found on the contact page.
Below are your top three Mega Yachts. Enjoy

Pink Shrimp

Pink Shrimp 104ft was built by Jemison Marine in 2000 and then refitted in 2010. She was commissioned and designed to be able to be very low maintenance and to be run by a minimum crew. She has a crew or 4 and can accommodate up to 10 guests. She has a max speed of 12kts and a cruising speed of 9kts with a range of 4,000nm.
Pink Shrimp was listed in June 2010 for sale with Fraser Yachts but is now currently in the hands of her new owner who spends most of the time between Sardinia and the South of France. Also the owner owns a Luca Brenta 42ft day sailor and can be seen docked along side when at a marina or been towed of the back when traveling.
Pink Shrimp is an expedition style yacht with the mix of a trawler fishing boat, probably where the name originated from. The interior in very simple and modern and with the pale colors and white walls give a very open and tidy feeling.



Utopia

Utopia 234ft Feadship launched in 2004 was spotted by one of our readers anchored of one of the Balearic islands Formentera during the week. Currently the yacht is in Palma Check it out on Yacht Tracker.
After being launched in 2004 she went through a major refit where she had the sun deck extended and the addition of a detailed staircase in side. The yacht was up for sale in 2009 by Edmiston & Company but was purchased for 52.5 million Euro in early 2010. The interior consists of dark woods like oak and walnut with a mix of light cream colored fabrics.
She can accommodate 12 guests in two double suites, three singles and the owners suite which is on their own private deck with 180 deg views. Outside on the deck Utopia boasts a helicopter pad, plenty of seating and sunbathing areas and a large jacuzzi on the sundeck up top.
She has a top speed of 16kts and a cruising speed of 14kts with a range of 5,000nm.



SKAT

SKAT 233ft Lurssen launched in 2001. This Mega Yacht you either love or hate, personally I think this is one of the most extraordinary and striking yacht on the sea today. Her project name was 9906 and is displayed on the aft side of the hull in a military style font. This yacht could easily be mistaken for an military destroyer with its sharp and angled lines.
The owner of this yacht is Charles Simonyi who was the chief Architect in Microsoft until he left in 2002 and founded his own company International Software.
SKAT has a max speed of 17kts and a cruising speed of 15kts. Espen Oieno was the designer and she can accommodate 10 guests and has a crew of 16.
Some of the features that are aboard SKAT are a gym, helicopter, and elevator the serves all four decks, Jacuzzi, and jet skis. There is an observation platform with helm control half way up the main mast.
