Yacht Harbour looks at the best images from the social media world over the past week.

#1. 110m superyacht concept Elyon

This radical 110-metre superyacht design was developed by Expleo Design studio in 2018. The yacht with steel hull and aluminium superstructure within a beam of 14,3 metres would be able to accommodate up to 30 guests. She is expected to cruising at the speed of 18 knots.

The organic shapes used to draw the yacht combine elements inspired by nature. Main inspiration was a calm wave, reflected in the exterior lines of the project.

Each deck from the six features several types of entertainment, such as sunbathing areas, swimming pool, Jacuzzi, party place, dining space, spa and gym, wellness area, games and casino room.

The space underneath the helicopter pad was designed to be used as a party place with a front view and an indoor pool.

The largest Oceanco yacht so far, the 110-metre Jubilee was delivered in 2017. 

Initially built for former emir of Qatar, the yacht was put on the market shortly before its delivery, asking price 275,000,000 €. Her sale was announced in November 2018, followed by the news on her coming refit with Lurssen. According to several industry sources, the yacht now belongs to an American billionaire.

With exteriors penned by Russian designer, Igor Lobanov, the yacht's exterior features fake, intermediary decks that make the yacht appear larger than it is when looked at from afar. 

Jubilee can accommodate up to 32 guests in 16 cabins and carry a crew of 45. Key amenities onboard include a swimming pool with a built-in aquarium, a helipad and a large beach club.
