What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of a yacht? Probably those huge luxury cruisers reserved for the high society folks, right? Well, that’s true, but those are a special group of ships referred to as luxury yachts.

The questions you need to be asking are – What is a yacht? At what point is a yacht regarded as a ship? And, what exactly makes a yacht a yacht? Here’s a little boating lesson for you.

A yacht is any fast cruising watercraft used for pleasure or sport. Yachts can be classified into cruisers, superyachts, and mega yachts. The difference between them all boils down to their respective sizes.

Luxury vessels that are less than 12 meters long fall in the class of cabin cruiser yachts – or simply, cruisers. Those that measure more than 24 meters are classified as superyachts. Anything that’s 50+ meters long is a mega yacht. Anything larger than a mega yacht is generally referred to as a ship and generally describes a working vessel as opposed to something recreational.

So, as you can see, you don’t necessarily have to be swimming in a ton of money to become a yacht owner. The only difference will be in the size of the craft you get. Clear enough?

Without further ado, here are the 15 best yachts, as well as a few useful tips on how to choose the best one.

How to Choose the Best Yachts – Buyer’s Guide

A yacht is a pretty big purchase. So, you need to know what to look for when choosing the right one for your needs. Here are a couple of pointers that might come in handy.

Type of Yacht

The type of yacht you buy depends in large part on your intended use for it. Most yachts tend to fall into one of three categories – For water sports like wakeboarding , fishing motor yachts, or the overnight cruising variety. Once you know what kind of recreational activities you plan on engaging in, that should help narrow down your choices.

Next, you need to consider what size of yacht you should get. Do you have a young family that you intend to expand in the coming years? Do you plan to use the vessel for day cruising, or do you intend to spend a couple of nights on board from time to time?

Will the yacht be just for you and your significant other, or do you plan to frequently entertain several guests on board? This will advise whether you should buy a cabin cruiser yacht, a superyacht, or a mega yacht.

In a perfect world, you would have all the money you need to buy any kind of watercraft you want. Sadly, that’s not the reality we live in. Keep in mind that yachts don’t exactly come cheap. So, even if you’re planning to purchase a small yacht, you’ll still need to spend quite a bit of cash to get it.

The best thing to do would be to set a budget and compare the different models on offer from different manufacturers . Aside from the boat’s purchase price, you also need to think about the costs associated with owning a yacht. These include insurance, repairs, maintenance, cleaning, and the vessel’s general servicing.

Figure out what kind of comfort and convenience features are a must-have for you. How many cabins should it have? Do you need it to have a summer grill up top? Or will the one in the mini kitchen below-deck suffice? Ensure that the yacht you get has all the amenities you need.

Last but not least, before you sign any purchase contract, ensure that you schedule a sea trial with the dealer. That way, you get a true feel for the boat before you buy it.

Look Before You Leap

If you’re in the market for a shiny new yacht, any of the 15 vessels we’ve detailed in this guide will make an excellent choice. Do your homework beforehand, and make sure your desired craft has all the features and amenities you seek.

Use the tips we’ve outlined in this guide to help you choose the best yachts from all the different options that are hot on the market right now. Happy yachting!

Best luxury yacht: 7 ultimate luxury cruisers you can buy

  • Toby Hodges
  • March 14, 2024

Toby Hodges takes a look at all the nominees and the winner of the best luxury yacht category in the European Yacht of the Year Awards

The definition of the best luxury yacht will differ according to personal opinion and from boat to boat. This year’s nominees in the luxury yacht category of the European Yacht of the Year Awards proved that perfectly.

The European Yacht of the Year awards are selected by a broad panel of expert judges from across the globe. These are people who spend their professional lives sailing and comparing yachts, so you can be certain that the yachts which stand out in this field are truly the best of the best on the market.

The best luxury yachts

Best luxury yacht winner 2024 – arcona 50.

When you enter the fiercely competitive 50ft luxury performance yacht market you better get it right. And the jury felt Arcona managed that. This watershed design for the traditional Swedish brand, by X-Yachts co-founder and former designer Niels Jeppesen, is a big, contemporary new Arcona, one that sees it move away from its cruiser-racer heritage and classic interiors.

The on trend styling inside and out is backed up by a premium level of build and finish quality and sailing performance – particularly if you have the performance sails, traveller and deep (2.95m) keel options the test boat carried, although the latter does limit your berthing and anchoring options.

While I doubt it’ll be raced or will suit typical bluewater use, it offers a purity of performance push-button sailing: a handsome prospect upwind in a light breeze, it transforms into a powerful reaching machine with stacks of control.

As chairman of our jury, Jochen Rieker, puts it: “The boat certainly did not win for her somewhat borrowed looks. She wins by checking all the boxes in all other respects. Slipping along gracefully in the lightest of airs, holding her stride and her balance in more demanding conditions, offering warmth, light and this reassuring feeling of utter quality down below – there simply isn’t anything to fault.”

Contest 50CS

The Contest 50CS, for example, is an archetype luxury cruising yacht, one built to the highest standards and that could take you to most waters in impeccable comfort. This model is, uniquely, available in two versions: this more conventional 50CS with aft master cabin, or the forward owner’s suite version on the aft cockpit Contest 49CS . We ran a full test on the latter after spending two days aboard in the North Sea, where that noticeably high freeboard, which may not aid boarding nor windage, helped keep us dry on deck in a steady Force 6 gusting 7.

As the 50CS proved, this Judel/Vrolijk design keeps slipping along in the light stuff too, providing enjoyable sailing in 6 knots breeze under a code sail. The centre cockpit offers a deep protected guest area, but also links well to the spacious aft deck.

And the Wetzels-Brown-designed interiors of Contests today are stunning and hard to match. The engineering, access to usable stowage, details and finish on the 50CS is first class and to get this level of quality at this size is special.

Both Contest and X-Yachts are early adopters of hybrid power, offering their bluewater cruisers with optional electric drives. For the XC 47 this was designed-in from the start to offer Oceanvolt’s award-winning new 25kW regenerative drive.

The XC 47 is another wonderfully engineered and thought out yacht for distance cruising, in particular for those who also enjoy hands-on helming pleasure. That should come as no surprise to any X aficionados, but what really struck me most about this yacht was the stowage, and the forethought needed to create that, together with how practical it has been made.

That may sound slightly anticlimactic but ask any long-term cruiser and stowage is always a priority. On deck, this constitutes a huge lazarette and sail locker, plus clever systems for launching a dinghy via davits and a liferaft canister, while below decks every square inch of space has been used effectively, with lockers hinged with gas struts.

It’s clear the Danish yard went to considerable time and effort, even building a full mock up of the interior that could be canted 20° each way.

If the deck saloon style looks didn’t sell this model to all – this is the first full non-Jeppesen designed X – the jury were converted once they’d taken the helm. ‘Quirky’ became ‘muscular and bold’. The ease with which it can be sailed from the cockpit was also appreciated.

While I understand many offshore cruisers like a protected centre cockpit and more sun protection, the attention to detail, stowage and practicalities, combined with the direct steering, motion and enjoyable sailing this X offers make it a standout new offering.

Jeanneau Yachts 55

Meanwhile the Jeanneau Yachts 55 stands out for different, unique reasons in this category, offering a completely new concept in comfort on deck while at anchor and a novel accommodation layout. Its focus is on outdoor living space.

What helps place this in a luxury bracket is not simply the price or the creative input of superyacht specialist design duo Philppe Briand and Andrew Winch, rather that its layout creates a palatial amount of private space for the owner’s suite. Guest cabins have their own direct access from the extensive cockpit via gullwing doors.

It certainly makes sense for solo owners or couples using it as a warm water apartment. How many people this will suit is another question, as it segregates any guests, crew or children from the galley and saloon.

I used the term monocat when I first viewed it, as the 55 really does attempt to mix the two worlds, particularly in terms of providing owner privacy and lounging space. Choose the rigid hard top and windshield and there’s a vast amount of covered area including a dinette and chart table – plus a bimini can shade all that extensive aft deck too.

The penalty comes in additional weight and wetted surface, and is felt in the handling and performance, the latter particularly in lighter breeze with the optional in-mast furling, self tacking headsail and shallow draught package we had. However, it’s set up to be easily managed from the mid cockpit with good visibility from the twin helms and easy circulation thanks to the ramped side decks. Full report in YW February 2024.

Best luxury yacht 2023

Best luxury yacht winner – oyster 495.

It is hard to imagine that the decor of a yacht can change its look and feel quite this much, yet the layout of this second 495, Eddie Jordan’s dramatic looking Tuga , is in fact identical to the first boat that I spent several days aboard last summer.

At its heart is a wonderfully (Humphreys) designed and engineered luxury bluewater cruiser conceived from the ground up, built in a new dedicated facility to a repeatable quality very few yards are capable of.

The 495 offers consistent passage making speeds in real voluminous comfort – whether enjoyed from the deep cockpit or the best-in-class aft cabin. Deck stowage and mechanical space is also superb.

Then factor in the family appeal of Oyster’s after sales and world rally programme and you start to appreciate the premium world this sub 50-footer gives access to.

The first yacht fully conceived under CEO Richard Hadida’s reign, this is also the smallest completely new Oyster 495 since 2005 – and it’s a triumph. It was our September 2022 cover star in which we featured the full review from our Oyster 495 three day test .

Beneteau Oceanis Yacht 60

The Oceanis Yacht 60 is a very different beast indeed to the 62 it replaces as flagship for the Beneteau range. The yard has learned plenty from the success of the First 53/OY 54 and wanted to create a 60 in this style and with the same deck layout (albeit larger and wider) and ease of circulation.

The construction experience of the smaller model clearly helped too, as this is a whopping five tonnes lighter than the bulky OY62 and with a deeper (2.6m) keel. The telling result is on the water. It feels sporty to helm and we averaged a knot slower than the single figure 6-8 knot windspeeds upwind and matched them reaching with Code 0 and a slight swell.

The vast cockpit works well, sheltered below the semi rigid bimini, it has plentiful lounging space with sailing systems led aft to the twin helms. The interior sees a 3+3 layout, where Beneteau wanted to get rid of the corridor effect of the OY62. The galley is forward to help open out space, while the forward suite with offset berth and headboard aft works well to give space with privacy.

This is an attractive, voluminous yacht that leaves a good overall impression whether under sail, on or below decks.

Ice 62 Targa

It all looks pretty funky below decks on the Ice 62 Targa too, especially if you’re watching the masthead fore and aft cameras (plus bow and prop cam) on central displays mounted in the saloon while you slip out of the dock! The Ice is a seriously impressive, contemporary yacht, one that in looks, performance and execution, won over many of the judges.

The first to launch is a highly customised project for a passionate sailing owner who covers long distances solo – he’d already sailed it 3,000 miles around the Med that autumn. It’s impressively stiff, sails handsomely and, thanks to a telescopic keel, points well. We matched single figure windspeeds, and clocked up to the high 9s in 12 knots wind.

Umberto Felci’s team spent 4,000 hours on the design, providing lots of space and light to the interior and a chillout zone in the semi raised saloon. This was easily the coolest looking yacht, with its aggressive reverse bow, chamfered gunwales and carbon T-top bimini, and all engineered and built to a high standard.

The Most Popular Yacht Brands

By Robert Bowman | Posted On Feb 21, 2022 Updated On May 18, 2022

After walking around the Miami Boat Show this week, I had the opportunity to speak with several excited future owners, as well as representatives from many of the shipyards in the 40-foot to 100-foot range. While none of this will come as a surprise to anyone who has been following the trends in yacht sales, there were mixed emotions from everyone as inventory shortages continue and demand remains incredibly strong. As you can imagine, even the most popular yacht brands have not been spared from equipment troubles, material shortages, and shipping delays.

(Keep scrolling down to get to the most popular boat brands by number of sold boats.)

The love and passion for boating that has grown this amazing recreation continues to thrive, while the need for relaxation is more important than ever before. What better way to unwind than on your own personal yacht, enjoying the sun and ocean with your favorite guests! I listened to one couple's plans to take on the Great Loop and had brought with them a list of bridge heights, along with requirements they wanted in a boat for their adventure. They planned on spending over a year on the Loop, taking their time along the way to enjoy each stop. Another gentleman perused over a 58-foot motor yacht with future plans of putting it into a yacht charter program in the Bahamas during season and off the New England Coast in the Summer.

The boating dreams and aspirations were generally the same as previous boat shows, but the sales climate was noticeably different. In some new boat displays, 'SOLD' signs could be seen on every single model on display.

Manufacturers, yacht dealers, and boaters alike all complained about the lack of available inventory - both new and used - with many wait times for new builds 18 months out or more. Fueled by shortages in materials and microchips, along with the incredible uptick in boat sales in the U.S., the current climate is one of quick decisions and fast action. Buyers using a professional yacht broker are more likely to be successful in finding the perfect boat as they can not only watch the market for what becomes available, but they also have knowledge of boats not yet currently advertised.

And for sellers, if there ever were a perfect time to sell your yacht quickly and for potentially over-asking price, it's right now!

Consider these facts for a moment :

  • Total U.S. pre-owned sales increased 10% from 2019 to 2021 while the total value increased 57%
  • Sales in the 46' to 55' category grew 34%, while the 56' to 79' category grew 38%
  • Yacht Sales for the 80'+ category grew 61%
  • United Yacht Sales also saw growth of 29% in 2021 , after increasing sales by 31% in 2020 .
  • The average boat value, across both power and sail, has increased 40% since pre-pandemic conditions.

A 10% increase in sales is a tremendous surge for an industry that sees nearly $40 billion in sales each year. According to a 2021 market index report from Boats Group, cruising yachts were the most popular type of yacht searched for on the brokerage market. Coming in second place were center-console boats , followed by motor yachts.

"It makes sense that cruisers are the most popular searched for boat," said Captain Jeff Palmer, UYS co-President. "Not only are there more cruising-style boat builders, but the versatility of this design keeps them relevant. People love to go on trips, whether it's to the islands or up the coastline, and the comfortable accommodations they provide are important to the owners." Our team can assist you in determining how much you should spend on a yacht .

( Seen below: A Pershing 62HT is a perfect example of an express cruiser . )

pershing yachts 62HT

While not a representation of every single boat sold in the marketplace, the below list outlines what boat brands were the most purchased on the brokerage market in 2021 in the United States. If you're looking to sell your boat, whether it's on this list or not, give our main office a call at 1-772-463-3131 to be connected to an expert on the current market.

Here are the most popular boat brands in 2021 *

1. Sea Ray Boats

2. Boston Whaler

3. Grady-White

4. Regal Boats

5. Carver Yachts

*Criteria: U.S. sales only, pre-owned only. Data:

(Seen below: An excellent example of a pre-owned Sea Ray yacht that is currently listed with United Yacht Sales.)

The brands listed above really come as no surprise as there were simply many more of these vessels built in the 90's and 2000's that continually become available for sale on the brokerage market each year. If we move the criteria to 50-feet and up, the top 5 brands change drastically.

Here are the most popular yacht brands over 50-feet:

2. Hatteras Yachts

3. Viking Yachts

4. Azimut Yachts

5. Prestige Yachts

I would also like to note that Carver Yachts and Ocean Alexander would have been included if we excluded the sportfishing brands. Although Hatteras and Viking both build motor yachts, the bulk of their sales continue to be in the fishing category.

Here are the top sportfishing yacht brands in 2021 : (production builders)

1. Viking Yachts

3. Tiara Yachts

5. Bertram Yachts

There are simply more cruising boat builders than sportfishing boats, making it important to break this category out by itself. Even drilling down further would require separating pre-owned custom sportfishing boats out from the production boats since so few of them are built each year.

(Seen below: This Merritt Yachts 58' is an exciting example of a custom sportfish listed with United Yacht Sales.)

The second most sought after category, center-console boats, always seems to be a dominant segment of the industry thanks to their relative affordability when compared to much larger yachts. The ease of handling and maintenance, normally due to having outboard engines, makes this a popular choice for many boat owners.

Here are the most popular center-console brands on the pre-owned market :

1. Boston Whaler

2. Grady-White

4. Edgewater

5. Intrepid

Please note that many boats in this category are sold 'For Sale By Owner' so exact numbers can be hard to quantify. This data represents pre-owned center-consoles sold through brokers and noted in Both Contender Boats and   were close behind Intrepid in terms of number of boats sold.

(Seen below: This Boston Whaler 38 Realm is a great example of a higher-end center-console on the brokerage market.)

Palm Beach International Boat Show

For superyacht shoppers, the Palm Beach International Boat Show, kicking off its four-day run this week, is set to break records with more than 60 yachts over 100 feet long on display. Last year was also a banner year for superyachts at the show. 

Headliners will include the likes of the 295-foot Corsair Nero ,  the 278-foot Victorious by AKYacht, the 230-foot Turquoise-built Talisman C , and 213-foot Benetti Triumph among brokerage yachts, and in new yachts, the 113-foot Ocean Alexander Puro 35 is making its world debut.  

There are so many gleaming white vessels over 100 feet, in fact, that the fleet will be split between the Palm Harbor Marina at the main show site on the downtown West Palm Beach waterfront and the Safe Harbor Rybovich Marina two miles north. 

Now in its 42nd year, PBIBS will also showcase hundreds of models of dayboats, cruisers, and fishing boats, as well as marine accessories. Running from this Thursday through Sunday, the show coincides with the Palm Beach Modern + Contemporary art show, a fortuitous opportunity for yacht owners wanting to add new art to their collections.

Here are 10 must-see boats at this year’s show.

Corsair Yachts ‘Nero’

top 5 motor yacht

The undisputed star of this year’s Palm Beach show? That would be the 295-foot, classically styled superyacht Nero , built in 2007 and inspired by American financier J.P. Morgan’s legendary 1930s steamer Corsair IV . Nero ‘s attendance at PBIBS marks its return to the charter market after an extensive refit in 2021. Now better than new, the boat is being managed by Burgess. With weekly charter rates from $497,000, the vessel offers five-star accommodations for 12 guests in six cabins, with pampering from a crew of 20. Part of the refit included a full interior refresh by Italian interior designer Laura Pomponi, plus a major focus on wellness. That meant the construction of a new, state-of-the-art gym and spa, the assistance of a certified onboard trainer, a masseuse and beautician. After PBIBS, Nero will spend the winter in the Caribbean before returning to the Med for the summer season.

Ocean Alexander Puro 35P

top 5 motor yacht

Ocean Alexander is debuting the first of its new Puro superyacht series at PBIBS. The 113-foot Puro 35P comes from the drawing board of Italian designer Giorgio M. Cassetta and is a step back from the polarizing lines of OA’s recent Revolution and Explorer series with their bold, vertical bow designs. Aimed at long-distance cruising, the 35P can carry over 5,000 gallons of fuel and is powered by twin 2,000 hp MAN V12s for a 24-knot top speed. Twin 55kW Kohler generators can also keep the yacht powered at anchor for long periods. Other standout features include extensive glazing in the chiseled fiberglass hull, a forward deck plunge pool, and spacious accommodations for 10 guests. 

top 5 motor yacht

Think of it as the “starter” Sirena. Aimed at a younger demographic, the Turkish builder’s brand-new Sirena 48 is making its U.S. debut at PBIBS after a global reveal at last fall’s Cannes boat show. Such is its appeal that 27 hulls have already been sold, with 13 of the orders coming from North America. Looking like a scaled-down version of Sirena’s popular 58, its distinctive, trawler-style lines are from Argentinian designer Germán Frers. With more interior space than a typical 48-footer, the yacht offers three staterooms—plus a crew cabin—a spacious, light-filled salon, a large cockpit, an oversized flybridge, and a vast forward social area. Take your pick from twin 550 hp Cummins QSB, or 670 hp Volvo D11 turbo diesels. Or the builder is also offering hybrid power with twin 285 hp electric motors charged up by variable-speed generators that are good for a 30-mile battery-only range.

Feadship ‘Olympus’

top 5 motor yacht

Picture purchasing a classic 180-foot Feadship superyacht, and then getting a $10 million bill for a major refit. That was the case with Olympus , built by the Dutch masters at Feadship in 1996 to a design by Britain’s Andrew Winch and the celebrated naval architect Frits De Voogt. Sold in 2022, the new owner sent it to the Monaco Marine refit center in La Ciotat, France for a major makeover. It included overhauling the 2,600 hp Caterpillar engines and generators, repairs to the structure, substantial upgrades to the guest areas and crew quarters, and new paint throughout. With the work completed just last year, the vessel is said to be in mint condition. Offered jointly by brokers Fraser and Edmiston, Olympus has an asking price of $28.5 million. With accommodations for 16 guests in eight cabins, the boat’s highlights include two primary suites, tropical-spec air conditioning, and Palm Beach-chic decor.

Benetti ‘Triumph’

top 5 motor yacht

Italian yachting powerhouse Benetti is showing off its superyacht-building skills with the 213-foot Triumph . Delivered in 2021, this Giorgio M. Cassetta-designed steel-and-aluminum world girder features six decks, a 1,400-square-foot primary suite with outdoor terrace and adjoining lounge, a 750-square-foot beach club, and a touch-and-go helipad. What sets Triumph apart, however, is its lavish interior furnishings put together by the owner along with Benetti Interior Style and Monaco-based Green & Mingarelli Design. It includes pieces by French glassmaker Lalique, marble from Marfil, Statuario and Armani, furs, silk and wool carpets, plus a collection of cool black-and-white wildlife photographs by British fine art photographer David Yarrow. The pièce de résistance? That would be the owner’s Triumph Bonneville motorcycle displayed in the salon.

Fjord 39 XP/XL

top 5 motor yacht

Germany’s Fjord Yachts, part of the Hanse Group, has a new 39-foot day boat that it’s unveiling at the Palm Beach show. The 39 XP and XL keep all the bold design cues of the bigger Fjord 41 XP and XL, like a big, open cockpit, walkaround center console, vertical bow, mile-high windshield and stretched hardtop. As for the differences between the XP and XL, it’s all about power. The XL comes with a choice of twin 320hp Volvo D4 diesels, or bigger 440 hp D6 versions, both with Volvo stern drives. Likely more appealing to U.S. buyers will be the XP powered by twin 400 hp Mercury Verado V10 outboards giving a 50-knot top speed. Pricing starts at around $500,000.

Turquoise ‘Talisman C’

top 5 motor yacht

Chandeliers don’t come more dramatic than this. Cascading down the central spiral staircase of the Turkish-built, 231-foot superyacht Talisman C , this jaw-dropping piece of art comprises an array of multi-colored glass balls threaded on stainless-steel rods and illuminated by hanging fiber-optic strands. It’s the creation of Prague-based Crystal Caviar and is one of a number of glass installations on this sleek, low-profile superyacht. Built in 2011 by the Proteksan Turquoise shipyard, Talisman C was designed inside and out by London-based studio H2 Yacht Design, with naval architecture by Italy’s Hydro Tec. With cabins for 12 guests, one of its highlights is a huge primary suite, which boasts more crystal chandeliers and a private library. Twin 2,447 hp Caterpillar diesels give a top speed of 18 knots and a transatlantic range of 7,000 nautical miles at 12 knots. It’s listed with Burgess for $59.9 million. 

Sanlorenzo 44 ‘Kamakasa’

top 5 motor yacht

Delivered in 2020 and sold to a new buyer just last August, the 146-foot Sanlorenzo 44 Alloy Kamakasa will be for sale at PBIBS. The asking price, through the Italian Yacht Group, is $23.75 million. Lack of use might also be the issue here; the yacht’s twin 2,600 hp MTU V16 diesels have a mere 289 hours on the clock. Built in aluminum to a design by Rome-based Zuccon International Project, Kamakasa was the second hull in the Sanlorenzo 44 Alloy series. One of the top features is a primary suite that spans three levels and almost 1,600 square feet; it also comes with a private Jacuzzi, separate bathrooms, a walk-in closet, and a private study. The yacht’s lightweight construction and MTU power combine to deliver an impressive 20-knot top speed.

Bahama 41 GT2

top 5 motor yacht

As ultimate, reel-’em-in, fishing center consoles go, the Bahama 41 from West Palm Beach-based Bahama Boat Works is as hard-core as they come. But when owners kept asking for a little more comfort for the family, the builder responded. The result is the brand-new flagship 41 GT debuting at PBIBS. While the proven, wave-slicing hull stays the same, the cockpit layout is new. In place of the single bench seat, there are now three-across bucket seats with a second row behind. The wider console now has space for a pair of 22-inch Garmin screens, while the new extended hardtop features sun shades and even a rain shower. Outboard choices stay the same with either twin Mercury V12 600s, or four 400 hp Mercury V10s, good for a 65-knot-plus top speed. Pricing is from around $920,000.

Heesen ‘Book Ends’

top 5 motor yacht

Launched in 2022, this 164-foot Heesen is part of the Book Ends collection, owned by an American couple who have had more than 18 yachts with the same name. The exterior design of this Heesen was by Omega Architects, while Dutch studio Van Oossanen did the naval architecture. The yacht is part of Heesen’s fast cruising series, which is more efficient than other vessels its size, and can reach 23 knots at full speed with its MTU 16V 4000 M65L engines. The yacht is listed through Ocean Independence for 42 million Euro, or about $45.7 million.

Best Luxury Yacht Brands: 25 Shipyards Which Build The Best Superyachts

By Brody Patterson

Updated on January 14, 2023

Heesen Yachts Project Altea

The superyacht industry is a world that offers you luxurious adventures around the globe, from the United States, all the way to the UK, Netherlands, Germany, or the beautiful Italian coast. From the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean to the Mediterranean, these stunning yachts are built by highly skilled professionals, who provide you with nothing but the best craftsmanship.

As a potential yacht owner, you can get inspiration from any of these companies and choose what is best suited to your needs. There is so much to take into consideration, hence we compiled a detailed list of the 25 best yacht building companies in the world to help you out.

For example, you need to figure out first what size yacht you want, as they range from 30-50 feet vessels, all the way to the larger than 260 feet superyachts, and everything in between. Are Eco-friendly details important to you, or is cutting-edge technology and speed an absolute must to you?

We will do our best to cover all these points and more, so let’s start looking at the best yacht brands in the world right now. 

Wally 118 WALLYPOWER Yacht

One of the best yacht brands in the 30-50’ range, Wally is an Italian company that specializes in fast motor yachts, but they’re also buiding gorgeous sailing vessels. For those of you who enjoy speed, you will be happy to hear that most of their yachts are made out of angular carbon composite and fiberglass, which enables you to blast through the waves.


Not so much for leisurely cruising, their 36-meter superyacht has luxurious accommodations for up to six guests and six crew members. Its prowess is due to the three Vericor TF50 gas turbines, which have a total power output of 16,800 hp. With its 60 knots top speed, it is one of the fastest yachts in the world.

Riva Dolceriva yacht

Founded in 1842 on Lake Iseo of Italy, Riva quickly became a racing yacht legend, and it has upheld its reputation since. One of the best cruising yachts in the world in the 30-50 feet category, Riva offers sleek looks and impressive performance.

Riva Aquariva Super

Solid stainless steel bow rails, an 800 hp engine, a 13-foot beam, and a 3-foot draft along a non-skid deck make this a very desirable vessel. Customizable to your tastes, you can cruise the waters in style.

Azimut Grande Trideck yacht

Aesthetic appeal along with classic Italian design makes this company one of the most sought after. The Italian shipyard develops innovative solutions like crafting hybrid engines and using nanotechnologies, which make the long-lasting coatings on their vessels have a lower impact on marine life.

Azimut Grande 35 Metri yacht

Equipped with options such as Twin Gens, Twin Watermakers, Stabilizers, Bow Thrusters and powered by DDEC 12V92’s with Ulstein forward-facing drives, the Grande 35 Metri reaches 25.5-knot max speeds. A stylish, yet competitive yacht.

  • 22. Dynamiq

Dynamiq-GTT135-CARAT yacht

TOP 5 Best Yachts from 15 to 20 Meters (50-65 ft) in 2024

For this list the topRik team has selected the five most comfortable yachts in terms of life on board and ease of management, ranging in length from 15 to 20 meters and worth up to 3 million euros.


Since we have different tastes and preferences, the top list included both sailing and motor boats, as well as a racing sailing cruiser. We tell in detail about our choice with illustrations and videos. Let’s go!

  • Brand: Dufour Yachts
  • Hull type: Sailing yacht
  • Overall length, m: 19.22
  • Width, m: 5.48
  • Draft, m: 2.8
  • Displacement, t: 24.150
  • Water tanks, l: 880
  • Exterior design (Architect): Felci Yacht Design
  • Interior Design: Felci Yacht Design
  • Mainsail type: Fully battened
  • Jib type: Self-tacking
  • Mainsail area, m²: 104
  • Jib area, m²: 66
  • Engine, hp: 180
  • Fuel tanks, l: 780

Each member of our team has some experience with sailing regattas. Paying tribute to this experience and given the high expectations of high comfort on board for this list, we gave the 5th place to the Dufour 61 monohull sailing yacht in our list.

Dufour 61

No one argues that it is difficult to provide comfort comparable to the capabilities of catamarans or trimarans on a monohull yacht. But, in our opinion, Dufour Yachts did what it could to achieve maximum possible comfort for the crew and passengers on their new racing cruiser.

Luxury that strives for simplicity - that’s what Dufour 61 is about. First off, you get a luxurious transom with a platform and a capacious locker where a dinghy fits perfectly, and look at this ladder with wide steps! And we haven't even climbed into the cockpit yet. Remember - we are talking about a single-hull sailboat with a hull length of just over 18 m.

Dufour 61

Two control stations with helms with dashboards behind them, on which, in addition to the usual displays, the screens of 12-inch Raymarine chartplotters are placed. Such a double post and folding wings that transform into seats are already becoming an integral part of Dufour's DNA, just like the awning over the entire cockpit protecting from rain or sun. Although, this is still an optional feature.

There is enough space in the cockpit to move freely and relax or dine at a fold-out table or at a second table located along the transom, using the facilities of a small deck galley. You can put mattresses with backs on the seat. Pay attention to how conveniently the winches are located. There is a hydraulic backstay tensioner next to the helm.

Dufour 61

Another control post is located in the cabin. Sitting at the skipper's table, you can work and at the same time watch the sails through these ceiling (deck?) portholes. The saloon is furnished with comfortable upholstered furniture and an incredible table that, with the help of a person, can perform miracles of transformation. From a coffee table, it can turn into an extra bed or grow into a large dining table.

Dufour 61

More than 10 people can easily fit around the table in the saloon, and although the yacht is designed for a maximum of 9 beds, according to the layouts, don’t forget about the possibility of extra beds in the cabin.

The official cabin options offer options for:

  • 3 cabins with three bathrooms for 8 people;
  • 4 cabins with 4 bathrooms for 9 people with longitudinal galley;
  • 4 cabins with 4 bathrooms for 9 people with a U-shaped galley.

Dufour 61

In all variations, the master cabin of Dufour 61 remains unchanged, with comfort approaching the luxury inherent in cabins on catamarans.

Dufour 61

The rest of the cabins are more modest, depending on the purpose, the same island double beds as in the master cabin can be installed there, or two separate berths can be equipped.

Dufour 61

The forepeak accommodates a crew cabin with berths, a separate shower, washbasin and toilet.

Dufour 61

The rig area is 170 m² (mainsail – 104 m², genoa – 66 m²) and engine power is 180 hp – these are the proofs that the developers from Felci Yacht Design did not sacrifice the seaworthiness of a sailing racer when creating comfortable living conditions on board the Dufour 61.

Neel 65 Trimaran

We could not fail to mention almost the only trimaran that meets the requirements of the list. Sailing trimaran Neel 65 from Neel Trimarans takes the 5th place. The shipyard presented its take on a cruising yacht in "Sport-Chic" mode. Why, in this case, the flagship of the line and the only trimaran in the ranking took second place... from the end? The general opinion of the team was: a lot of chic, but not enough sport.

Neel 65 Trimaran

Sure, the choice of sailing equipment is impressive: a mainsail of 374 m², furling genoa of 305 m², self-locking twisting staysail - 130 m², and gennaker of 525 m². How else can you budge a hulk whose displacement at half load is 22.5 tons?

Neel 65 Trimaran

The original solution of combining the saloon and cockpit deserves attention. For this huge space, the developers have come up with a new term - cockloon.

The descent into the technical compartment in the central float is carried out directly from the saloon, pardon, directly from that part of the cockloon that can be considered saloon. You enter huge engine room with Volvo engines Penta 40 hp. There is also a boiler, watermaker , generator, air conditioner, 600-liter tanks for water and fuel, as well as shelves for various equipment, spare parts, tools and materials. Judging by the volume of tanks and the presence of a watermaker, the autonomy of the trimaran is excellent. The same section is also used as a bicycle garage.

A galley with an almost circular layout is also located in the saloon. There is enough space for 2-3 people, especially since the work surfaces are divided into zones - with a hob, a sink, zone for cutting food, zone for serving it. The galley is fully equipped with all the necessary equipment, including a dishwasher, refrigerators and freezers, which again brings us back to the well-solved problem of the autonomy of the vessel.

Neel 65 Trimaran

Neel 65 is designed for a maximum of a master cabin placed on the upper deck, and 4 cabins in floats for 8 berths.

Neel 65 Trimaran

The master cabin with a large island bed is equipped with plenty of storage space. Natural light enters through a large porthole. The cabin has a full bathroom with all amenities.

Neel 65 Trimaran

The aft and bow cabins are also quite roomy and filled with natural light through the side and ceiling windows. The latter are also used for natural ventilation.

Neel 65 Trimaran

By the way, all the cabins, even the bow cabins, are of surprisingly decent height, when compared with the bow cabins of catamarans, and even more so of monohulls. The bow cabins have a round opening porthole, a lavatory with guest access and a large closet.

The forepeak can also accommodate crew if all cabins are occupied by passengers.

On the stairs from the cabins leading to the skipper's station, there is a panel of electrical equipment and electronics. The post is equipped with communication facilities, a table for working with maps, a chartplotter , etc. A magnificent view opens through the panoramic glazing of the entire cockloon.

The bow is equipped with nets. It seemed to us that it was not safe enough for people to stay here, or was not originally intended for this.

We found another weak point of this trimaran, which is often observed in some models of catamarans. If you are less than two meters tall, you will not see the left float from the helm station. But if you lean low enough, then you will have an overview of it.

In other respects, the electronics of the control post are thought out to the smallest detail. Behind the helm there is a panel with navigational instruments, and nearby, at arm's length – winches and throttle. Standing at its helm, you can feel like a space pilot, because it is able to provide a cruising speed of up to 20 knots. Nevertheless, Neel 65 feels more like a luxury yacht than a sporty vessel - you feel like nothing can go wrong with your voyage, so it’s not exactly an option for thrill-seekers.

Fountain Pajot Samana 59

This is one of Fountaine Pajot’s flagship models - the heir of the Ipanema 58 and the natural development of the brand’s lineup., which includes models such as Alegria 67 , Astrea 42 , Elba 45 , Saona 47, Isla 40 .

It is not surprising, that the Samana 59 cruising sailing catamaran, with a width of 9.5 m, is similar in silhouette to the Alegria 67. Both yachts were designed by the same team of naval architects Berret-Racoupeau Yacht Design.

Fountain Pajot Samana 59

They succeeded in their task of providing the same comfort on a 59-foot yacht as on her predecessor worth more than two million, but not at the expense of seaworthiness.

TopRik experts believe that Berret-Racoupeau Yacht Design has coped with the task so well that it deserves to be right in the middle of our list.

First, when you look at the wide ladder steps and a powerful platform with a hydraulic drive, capable of holding a weight of almost half a ton, you begin to doubt that this 18-meter boat can show cruising properties. But familiarity with its sailing rig and engines removes this prejudice.

This boat with the vibes of a superyacht is equipped by default with two engines with a capacity of 110 hp, optionally - 150 hp. The sail area, which includes the mainsail and genoa, is 117 + 87 m². Fuel tanks of 1200 liters make it possible to navigate autonomously over long distances.

You can tailor this cat to suit your needs using the Samana 59's versatility and its many areas for relaxing, sunbathing, swimming and eating:

  • 4 cabin layout options;
  • flybridge with an area of 30 m²;
  • cockpit area of 27.5 m²;
  • foredeck with an area of 10 m²;
  • dining areas in the cockpit, saloon and flybridge;
  • relaxation areas, solariums on the flybridge, foredeck, saloon and cockpit;
  • modular deck chairs and trampolines, deck chairs and mattresses in the cockpit and on the bow deck;
  • fully equipped galley in 2 versions in the saloon or in the float, galley and refrigeration equipment on the flybridge and plancha in the cockpit;
  • 2 options for the bar area.

Fountain Pajot Samana 59

The yacht provides plenty of storage space for a motorized inflatable dinghy , folding bikes, diving and spearfishing equipment, clothes, books and other things that you may need on board for a long cruise. It also increases the comfort of sailing, as you can take everything that you are used to using on land, except for a car and your own office. Well, actually... The owner's cabin has enough space, a desk and the necessary connection to organize a makeshift office. But we hope that you will use your master cabin for relaxation - it has all it takes for that.

Fountain Pajot Samana 59

In different configuration options, the developers have provided for the possibility of placing from 4 to 6 cabins:

  • Lounge Maestro (galley downstairs): owner's cabin with bathroom (photo above), 2 double cabins with bathrooms each, bunk bed cabin with bathroom (children love this option).
  • Maestro (galley above): 1 owner's cabin with bathroom, 4 double cabins with bathrooms each.
  • 5 cabin charter version (downstairs galley): 4 double cabins and 6 bathrooms, bunk bed cabin and bathroom.
  • 6 cabin charter version (galley above): 6 double cabins with ensuite bathrooms each.

Fountain Pajot Samana 59

The engine room is a fairly roomy compartment, where you can go down through the hatch in the cockpit, with good access to the Volvo Penta engines.

A spiral ladder leads to the flybridge, where the helm station is located. It looks quite organic in this huge space filled with sun loungers, sofas, sun loungers and a small galley.

Fountain Pajot Samana 59

Particularly impressive is the 22-inch marine display on the control console, which is located just behind the helm. Here you can take full control of: the anchor winch with windlass, thruster, throttles, radio station and electric winches on both sides of the helm. Everything is so conveniently located that an experienced skipper can handle the Samana 59 alone.

Fountain Pajot Samana 59

Another working area is located in the cabin - this is the navigator's table, where the readings of the operation of all equipment are displayed, as well as the chartplotter screen.

Fountain Pajot Samana 59

Well, by handing over the reins to the autopilot or assistant, the skipper can always relax in a good company and in a good place, for example, on the foredeck.

Lagoon Sixty 7 (Lagoon 67)

Let's not hide the fact that the team has some Lagoon boats fans, including both sailing and motorized options. Thanks to their “lobbying”, the motor catamaran Lagoon Sixty 7, or Lagoon 67 came to the second place in the list at high cruising speed.

Lagoon 67

As you can see, the continuity in this model is preserved by the efforts of the same team of VPLP naval architects and interior designers from Nauta Design. The task they had was not an easy one: to retain the comfort of Lagoon Seventy 8. Keep in mind, the difference in the length of the yachts is close to 5 meters.

And yet the developers have managed to strike the perfect balance between luxury and performance, packing it all into a 20 m boat that provides almost the same comfort as on the Seventy 8.

Lagoon 67

As a result of their creative and engineering thought, you can become the owner of a 5-star hotel suite of three levels, with the following elements of luxury and comfort:

  • the ability to choose interior decoration - natural walnut, mahogany or white oak veneer;
  • high-quality textiles made from natural materials for upholstery, curtains, bedspreads, bedding and tableware, etc.;
  • comfortable spacious cabins (16 m² master cabin) with private bathrooms, the configuration of which is determined by the buyer;
  • a full galley of 12 m² in the saloon, fully equipped with everything you need, as well as additional mini galleys in the cockpit and on the flybridge;
  • king island beds size, chic sofas, deck chairs on all decks;
  • standard and optional complete set of equipment to ensure a comfortable life in long autonomous navigation.

Lagoon 67

From the cockpit you can go to a private beach spot, which is provided by a platform with wide steps of the transom. Here you can also attach a boat, jet ski, surfboards or kites.

A very wide sliding door connects the cockpit with the saloon, and the resulting huge space allows you to move freely throughout the resulting lounge area.

Lagoon 67

In the cabin, the space is divided into recreation areas and workers. The first group includes sofas around a coffee table and the second group of sofas around a full dining table.

Lagoon 67

The working area includes a navigational control post with a table, a chartplotter and other equipment and communication devices.

Lagoon 67

The saloon has circular glazing, so there is sufficient natural light and a 360-degree panoramic view.

Using the configuration options for cabins, the future owner can create the configuration of his Lagoon Sixty 7 himself – it is available with 3, 4, 5 and 6 cabins. In the left float there is a full-fledged galley with all the necessary equipment. For the 6-cabin option, the 12 m² galley will be moved to the saloon.

Lagoon 67

A luxurious master cabin is an owner's privilege. Here, in addition to the king island bed size there is a large set of furniture - cabinets, shelves, a sofa, a work table and a dressing table. It is so large that it does not even fit completely in one panoramic photo.

Lagoon 67

The owner also has a large bathroom with all the elements for hygiene and care.

Lagoon 67

Guest cabins are also quite comfortable, spacious and equipped with storage space. Each guest cabin has its own bathroom with all the necessary amenities for taking water treatments, as well as a separate toilet.

Lagoon 67

Lagoon Sixty 7 continues the shipyard's trend of offering superyacht standards to an even wider range of yachtsmen.

Fountain Pajot Power 67

Motorized version of the Fountaine Pajot’s sailing catamaran Alegria 67 is the leader in the ranking of the most comfortable yachts up to 3 million euro.

Fountain Pajot Power 67

Hey, what’s this?! Is that a Jacuzzi over there on the foredeck? Well, yes. Yet having it on Fountaine Pajot’s Power 67 is not required - it is an optional option. After you have breathed a sigh of relief (it’s additional 3 tons of water off your shoulders!) we will continue to talk about this incredible motor catamaran with a length of almost 20 m, a width of almost 10 m and a displacement of 31 tons.

For many, this is a dream come true for maximum comfort on a cruise trip without a dress code and other conventions of a superyacht, but with its feel: spacious rooms and recreation areas with a luxurious interior and ease of operation, which can always (well, almost) be delegated to an autopilot or crew.

Fountain Pajot Power 67

Another addition to the mix is the maximum safety for passengers and crew, which is typical for most catamarans that are not intended for racing. Please note that there are no nets in the bow, like on a sailing catamaran. For them, the absence of a hard overlap serves to ensure that the boat does not bounce with the wave. This is not necessary on a powerboat, since the weight is redistributed differently, in particular due to the lack of a mast with sails and due to large fuel reserves. It is clear that the floats provide high stability of the cat due to the thoughtful distribution of the entire mass of equipment, furniture and equipment that they carry.

The Power 67 is ideal for both personal and commercial use. Whether you want to get lost in the ocean for half a year in the most comfortable conditions, or regularly provide your family or friends with an amazing sea trip in luxurious conditions, this is your model.

If you are a business owner, this yacht can accommodate up to 16 passengers and provide them with maximum comfort and a superyacht feel throughout a long autonomous voyage.

Fountain Pajot Power 67

There are 2 fillers on each side, with standard tanks allowing for 4 kiloliters of fuel (same as the sailing version), and another 2000 liters are added on top, which ensures a decent autonomy of the cat.

And if outside the vessel is completely identical to Alegria 67, then the underwater part of the transom, invisible to us, has been upgraded for the sake of speed, specifically for the motor version of the yacht.

The very roomy engine compartment accommodates two 480 hp Volvo Penta engines. When fully loaded (excluding jacuzzi!) with these engines, the cat can reach a maximum speed of 18 knots, and cruising speed will be 10-12 knots. A planing boat at this speed will bounce on the wave, scour and dive with its bow. But the catamaran will move like it’s on rails.

In the same compartment there are filters, two washing machines, as well as a batch switch with a voltage output of 220 and 12 V.

There are two synchronized diesel generators, the second one is connected only when necessary, which saves electricity consumption.

In the photo above, you could see a great bathing area that the platform and wide lower steps of the ladder provide. If these steps are used as a beach, the platform can carry a 4.5 m motor dinghy, a jet ski or kites - the platform can withstand a weight of 450 kg. The height of the platform can be adjusted too.

But let's finally go up to the cockpit.

Fountain Pajot Power 67

Plenty of comfortable seating and loungers with lockers underneath, a fold out table and a galley with plancha or grill, sink and fridge.

On the transom there is a wonderful device from Volvo - a joystick that helps with mooring by interacting with the thruster, propellers and feathers of the rudders. The same joystick is also on the flybridge, at the steering station. Considering the dimensions of the cat, this mooring system is very useful, especially for those who prefer to be alone in the ocean.

On both sides of the cockpit, doors rising up lead to the cabins - the guest cabin and the owner's cabin. The master cabin is comparable to a hotel room and has all the amenities, including a private bathroom.

Fountain Pajot Power 67

The aft and bow guest cabins also have large beds, storage space, portholes for natural light and private bathrooms.

Fountain Pajot Power 67

If the cat is purchased for charter flights, the crew can be accommodated in the forepeak - there is enough space for a bed and a bathroom.

Fountain Pajot Power 67

The Samana 67 catamaran can accommodate 14 people in 7 cabins, and all cabins will be provided with a full bathroom with some differences in volumes.

Fountain Pajot Power 67

As you can see, manipulations with the partitions allow you to choose the option of completing the cabins in strict accordance with the wishes of the buyer.

It remains to climb the flybridge, but on the way there we will look into the saloon. This huge space is divided into three zones: recreation, dining and work.

Fountain Pajot Power 67

Unusual freedom of movement and spaciousness even for cat, the feeling of which is enhanced by wide sliding doors to the cockpit. The window above one of the galley tables is also sliding, through which you can serve food and drinks from the galley to the cockpit.

A large and comfortable control station of Power 67 includes a chart table with a panel displaying the screen of the chartplotter and other tools.

The second helm station is located on the flybridge - we get there by climbing a comfortable staircase from the cockpit, which it can be clearly seen in the first photo above behind the door. Like the saloon, the flybridge has a clear division into zones.

The seating area has sofas and loungers, a convertible table, a small galley and a refrigerator, which allows you to organize an outdoor dining experience.

The control post is moved forward on the starboard side. Behind the navigator's seat, designed for two people, there is a lounger from where you can observe the controls.

Fountain Pajot Power 67

The helm is similar to the steering wheel of a car. Immediately behind it is a panel with multifunctional marine displays and other instruments. To the right of the navigator there is a joystick - a double of the one in the cockpit, to facilitate mooring.

That was the summary of all the features of this luxurious and comfortable cottage on the water for a family cruise or a trip with close friends. Even though it’s full of amenities, it is also extremely efficient in terms of fuel consumption, and also does not require a large crew, which makes it profitable for those who organize charters.

Thanks for reading till the end! We hope that this list was informative and put some things into perspective for you when it comes to some of the most expensive yachts in the world.

Men's Brackets Lock In

Andy Katz, Correspondent | March 18, 2024

March madness predictions: andy katz makes his 2024 di men's basketball bracket picks.

top 5 motor yacht

Right after the 2024 Division I men's basketball bracket was unveiled on Sunday,'s March Madness guru Andy Katz live-streamed his March Madness picks for Bleacher Report. 

He gets into each of his picks in the video , but for now, we'll dive into his most notable predictions from each round and each region, as well as his Elite Eight and Final Four selections.

BRACKET: Check out the 2024 bracket

East region 

  • Reasoning: "Tucker DeVries is an outstanding player, a big time scorer coached by his father Darian Reese, and they won the [Missouri] Valley tournament by beating Indiana State. I like Drake here."
  • Reasoning: "I just love the way the Illini are playing right now."
  • Reasoning:  "These games will be in Boston, so it's a de-facto home game for the Huskies. It will be an absolute war between these two teams, it's going to be incredibly intense, but In a late-possession game I like UConn to get to the Final Four for a chance at back-to-back championships."

West region 

  • Reasoning: "They [Nevada] have a team that's already won a tournament (Diamondhead Classic). They've got a lot of momentum and I love the way they're playing."
  • Reasoning: "There's great guard play for both schools here, but I just think the momentum is going to continue for the Lobos. Richard Pitino has done an outstanding job resetting the season after the disappointing home loss to Air Force.” 
  • Reasoning:  "We get Caleb Love vs. RJ Davis, ACC player of the year vs. Pac-12 player of the Year, teammates a year ago — what a great storyline in Los Angeles. I think Arizona wins it."

South region 

  • Reasoning: "Florida's sort of flew under the radar and had a really solid season — they played in the SEC title game — but here's where I pick an upset. I think Colorado beats Boise and Colorado beats Florida." 
  • Reasoning: "I think the Badgers have the ability to match Duke on the perimeter and be physical. Steven Crowl is playing very well right now and I think he can match up with [Kyle] Filipowski."
  • Reasoning: "Reed Sheppard gets there (to the Final Four) like his dad Jeff Sheppard did, as a three seed. Kentucky advances." 

PLAY TO WIN:  Play the 2024 Bracket Challenge Game

Midwest region

  • Reasoning: "Here's the upset: I don't like the mojo right now with Kansas. We don't know about Hunter Dickinson or Kevin McCullar Jr., and without them they are not the same basketball team I'm going with Samford." 
  • Reasoning: "Dante vs. Kalkbrenner: what a matchup inside. But Dante is a freak athlete, and I think Kalkbrenner is going to have some problems with him. I like Oregon dancing into the Sweet 16."
  • Reasoning: "As much as I think Dalton Knecht, Purdue has the National Player of the Year Zach Edey. I like the Boilermakers."

Final Four 

  • Reasoning: "I think the X-factor is going to be Cam Spencer, he's going to make shots. In what I think will be a great high-level game, I think UConn advances to the national championship." 
  • Reasoning: "Again, I think this is where Edey rises.”

National championship 

  • Reasoning: "This is the game that we've been wanting all season long between the two best, most consistent teams. And with the way UConn has played in the biggest moments, I think they win back-to-back championships."

5 NBA Draft prospects to watch heading into 2024 NCAA Tournament

Nba scouts will keep a keen eye on some of these players in college basketball's toughest test.

Scott Thompson

Fox News Flash top sports headlines for March 18

March Madness is here, and other than college basketball fans wanting their brackets to work out and see some classic upsets, some of the NBA’s future players will be on the hardwood trying to up their draft stock. 

The top prospects in this year’s draft will be playing in the NCAA Tournament, and while their minds are on winning it all, NBA teams will be watching intently to see how they fare in win-or-go-home contests. 

With that being said, here is a look at star college players who could be taken high in the draft this June.

PG Rob Dillingham– Kentucky

A projected top-five pick, and a player some believe could be the best prospect in college basketball right now, Rob Dillingham’s competitive spirit is built for March, and his skills are undeniable. 

Dillingham’s style of play seems to have been birthed on a pickup basketball court, but that is the type of grittiness that is needed to advance to the next round this time of year. Dillingham’s freshman season saw 15.4 points on 48.2% shooting from the field with 3.9 assists, 2.8 rebounds and 1.1 steals averaged per game. 

Kentucky’s early exit in the SEC Tournament did not allow Dillingham to show off his stuff in big moments, but the No. 3 seeded Wildcats will take on No. 14 Oakland on Thursday, when Dillingham can shine. 


PG/SG Reed Sheppard – Kentucky

Dillingham’s teammate, the sharp-shooting Reed Sheppard is someone that comes off the bench and provides the scoring jolt head coach John Calipari loves. Bench depth is critical for teams wishing to hoist the national title trophy.

Sheppard shot 52.5% from three-point range, taking 4.4 attempts per game and averaging 12.8 points per game. He also does well dishing the rock, tallying 4.5 assists per game while bringing down 4.3 rebounds. 

Sheppard is another projected top-10 pick in this year’s draft if he decides to leave after his freshman year.

F Cody Williams – Colorado 

Cody Williams already has some idea of how the transition from college to the NBA will be thanks to his older brother Jalen Williams, a forward with the Oklahoma City Thunder . 

At 6 feet, 8 inches tall, Williams can play virtually anywhere on the floor, as his defensive abilities are something NBA scouts are loving right now. He has done well on the offensive end for the Buffaloes as well, as the freshman has 12.6 points per game with 3.3 rebounds and 1.7 assists over 21 games thus far. 

Because of his two-way style of play, evaluators have him going in the top 10 somewhere. 

C Kyle Filipowski – Duke

The heartbeat of this year’s Blue Devils team, Kyle Filipowski has the Duke offense run through him. The sophomore may be 7 feet tall, but his game does not just work in the paint. 

He has improved in many facets from his freshman year, averaging 17.1 points compared to 15.1 last season and shooting better from beyond the arc at 35% from 28.2%. 

Kyle Filipowski

The Blue Devils will need him at his best if they wish to get through a bracket that includes Kentucky, No. 1 Houston, and No. 2 Marquette. 

As for the draft, Filipowski is expected to be taken midway through the first round. 

SG Ja’Kobe Walter – Baylor

When looking at NBA mock drafts, Ja'Kobe Walter goes anywhere from fifth overall down to No. 15 overall. It just depends on what teams project his game will look like at the next level, but scoring is expected. 

The Bears’ star freshman is averaging 14.2 points per game with 4.4 rebounds and 1.5 assists over 33 games, but he picked the wrong time to cool down. He shot just 34% from three this season despite some believing he is the best three-point shooter in this year’s draft class. 

What better way to prove doubters wrong with a solid NCAA Tournament performance, where Walter can certainly boost his draft stock with some red-hot shooting to help his team get back to the national championship, which they won in 2021.

2024 March Madness predictions: Expert NCAA bracket picks against the spread, odds for First Four games

A closer look at the first four games that will kick off the 2024 ncaa tournament.


The 2024 NCAA Tournament officially gets started Tuesday in Dayton, Ohio, with a First Four doubleheader that will shrink the 68-team field to 66 and then again to 64 following another doubleheader Wednesday. The first games each day will tip off at 6:40 p.m. ET with all four showdowns on truTV  and March Madness Live .

No. 16 seeds Wagner and Howard will meet first with the winner facing No. 1 seed North Carolina in the West Region. The next game will see No. 10 seeds Colorado State and Virginia -- two of the last four teams selected for this year's field -- battling their way into the main bracket. The winner advances into the first round to face No. 7 seed Texas on Thursday.

The First Four has been a mixed bag over the years, but generally, the games serve as a perfectly tasty appetizer to the main course that is the first round of March Madness , which begins Thursday at noon.

Let's take a look at each of the First Four games along with who our experts are predicting will not only advance to the first round but potentially cover the spread.

Odds via SportsLine consensus | All times Eastern

(16) Wagner vs. (16) Howard

Tuesday, 6:40 pm. | truTV, March Madness Live :  Howard opened as a 3-point favorite, but this line has gotten juiced up to 3.5 for the Bison. I'm still sticking with them and laying the points, though. They've got superior guard play and high-major talent, including Seth Towns , a former Ivy League Player of the Year enjoying a career campaign in his eighth season of college basketball. Pick: Howard -3.5

(10) Colorado State vs. (10) Virginia

Tuesday, 9:10 p.m. | truTV, March Madness Live :  If you were surprised by Virginia's inclusion into the NCAA Tournament, you weren't alone -- even the  Cavaliers looked genuinely stunned they got in . They struggled mightily down the stretch in ACC play, and their offense has been abysmal. It's hard to see them keeping pace with CSU in this one.  Pick: Colorado State -3

(16) Grambling State vs. (16) Montana State

Wednesday, 6:40 pm. | truTV, March Madness Live :  Grambling is dancing for the first time in school history after taking down the SWAC regular-season and tournament titles.

Wednesday, 9:10 p.m. | truTV, March Madness Live :  Few teams enter the NCAA Tournament with better vibes and renewed optimism as Colorado, which has won seven of its last eight games thanks to finally landing on the right side of some injury luck.
