New yachts stand out at Southampton Boat Show

There may have been fewer boat launches in Britain compared to pre-COVID times, but there’s still plenty new to see at the 2021 Southampton Boat Show this September.

For top-end luxury, there’s the Contest Yachts 55CS. It’s been around for a couple of years, but picked up the Luxury Cruiser award in the European Yacht of the Year 2021.

The 50-60ft luxury bluewater cruising sector, which is about as big as you’d want to go without seriously thinking about having to take crew, paid or otherwise, is getting pretty competitive these days as demand continues to be high. Have a look, even if only to dream.

While we’re on the bluewater cruisers, two new boats will be worth looking at. If you’ve been to Boot Düsseldorf, you may have already seen the Discovery 48S, which will be on show at Southampton for the first time.
