Super yachts, which are also known as luxury yachts, are expensive yachts that often have professional crews. In the last decade or so, more and people have taken to the seas in super yachts, which can be powered by sails or motors.
Since there is a spirit of competition among boat owners, it takes building a bigger and better boat to qualify as a super yacht. A yacht needs to be at least 79 feet (24 meters) to be entered in boat design competitions. However, super yachts that are 140 to 160 feet (45 to 50 meters) are thought to be on the small end for super yachts, even when these boats have three decks and enough space to sleep 10 to 12 people. Some boat owners choose to rent out their super yachts when they are not using them for people who want to cruise but don’t want to be on a commercial cruise ship.
.And now, because there are more super yachts than there used to be, new terms have been coined for boats that seem to go beyond even super yacht status. Boats with indoor swimming pools and hangars for helicopter landings and other super luxurious features are now known as mega yachts or giga yachts.
