At first glance, the statistic may seem alarming, but the reality of the situation says something different. Shipyards worldwide delivered 156 superyachts over 30 meters in 2014, a decrease of more than 12% over 2012 when 179 vessels were delivered and 2% over 2013, with 159 deliveries. Theses statistics are deceiving, however, as virtually all of the builds were commissioned during the height of the recent economic downturn.
Motor yachts accounted for 89% of total deliveries at 139 units, while sailing yachts numbered 17. Average motor yacht size remained virtually the same as in 2013 at 43.46 meters, but the average length of a sailing yacht grew 2.08 meters to 43.62 meters. That figure could possibly rise over the net few years as a number of large sailing yachts, such as the 106-meter Oceanco Solar and he 147-meter White Pearl, are currently under construction.
Fincantieri’s Ocean Victory at 140 meters was the largest motor yacht deliver in 2014, while the largest sailing yacht was the 65-meter Lamima, built by Italthai Marine in Thailand.
