Myriad biomes cover the Americas, and the transitioning seasons bring out the best in these destinations for a luxury yacht charter: See the changing colours in Maine, cruise to Alaska by explorer yacht to see the calving glaciers and rugged wilds, or head to the warm and ever-vibrant Caribbean and Bahamas.

Of all the charter yachts available in the Americas, some are more statement-making than others, and the list below celebrates some of the most spectacular builds of recent years for a celebration like no other to see out the end of the year.

Project X

There’s no mistaking 88m/288.9ft motor yacht PROJECT X from Golden Yachts: A criss-cross design covers the windows amidships on three of the decks. Traditional and contemporary elements blend together in the exterior appearance, and the same could be said of her interiors: Lavish open spaces furnished in natural materials and neo-classical shapes in neutral tones. Floor-to-ceiling windows and carefully placed artificial lighting bring out the quality in the social areas, filled with colourful artwork and a grand piano in the main salon and a bar in the sky lounge.

The 85m/278.10ft superyacht VICTORIOUS by Turkish shipyard Akyacht has bold military styling and an outward colour scheme to match… but her interiors tell a completely different story. Warm and welcoming earthy tones come from an extensive selection of different wood varieties, set off by marbling patterns repeated in the surroundings.

Admiral superyacht KENSHO has a futuristic appearance with its silvery blue paint job, clean lines and inverse bow. What awaits within is a serene retreat with a Far East theme, found in the little details such as the embossed wall panels, painted sliding doors and pottery on display. Lighting is used to great effect, stealing guests away from the panoramic exterior views for an intimate atmosphere after dark.
