A new coffee table book called “Spectacular Superyachts: Inspired Interiors,” written by yachting journalist Diane M. Byrne, takes a look inside 21 superyachts, including seven of the top 100 and two among the top 50.

“In the 25 years I’ve spent covering superyachts, I’ve toured hundreds of yachts of all shapes and sizes,” said Byrne in a statement. “Whether subdued in décor or supremely over the top, each and every one of them has a story to tell.”

Kismet, a 312-foot superyacht by Lurssen whose charter rate tops $1 million per week, is featured in the book with her two-deck-high atrium with piano bar with Art Deco-style railing. A chandelier in the main stairway onboard Aquila, the 281-foot yacht by Derecktor Shipyards formerly known as Cakewalk, is comprised of more than 850 pieces of handblown glass.

On the cover is 228.5-foot Sherakhan, built by Vuyk, featuring the almost 23-foot-high dining atrium onboard.

“The 21 yachts in Spectacular Superyachts: Inspired Interiors are among the best storytellers afloat, so I wanted to share their stories in a unified way, with other yacht owners and enthusiasts.”

The book, which was published by Superyacht Storytellers, has a limited print run of 100 copies.
