Open Yachts / Sports Cruisers

If moving quickly from destination to destination, speeding along the coastline and the buzz of high speeds on the water appeals, then browsing our performance yachts for sale should be top of your list. These fast yachts combine sporty, sleek lines, powerful engines and high knots to create an exciting overall package for guests to enjoy the thrill of yachting from. They are especially suited to those looking to pack as much in as possible over a short space of time or enjoy a quick weekend away.

This type of yacht will traditionally only have two decks, with smaller on board spaces when compared to a larger displacement style yacht, a trade-off for the high speeds you will be able to enjoy. Fast performance yachts and sport yachts will usually have a planing hull, which allows them to glide effortlessly over the water in a sensation that feels almost like flying. Different superstructure styles are on offer with the most popular being the flybridge and open designs.

While most performance yachts can reach speeds of up to 30 knots with ease, some of these yachts can even reach mind boggling speeds of over 50knots. Several yachts in the IYC fleet number in Boat International’s list of the ‘Top 20 Fastest Yacht’ including 28.2m Reveil, which reaches top speeds of 56 knots.

The need-for-speed usually necessitates lightweight, uncomplicated interiors and contemporary and minimalist interiors pair perfectly with modern, masculine exterior lines. With a huge focus on enjoying the sensation of speeding through the water and enjoy the on-water lifestyle, performance yachts will usually boast good indoor and outdoor spaces, with an easy flow between the two, with plenty of features to enjoy relaxing, sunbathing and enjoying the open air and good life at sea.

Performance yachts come in all sizes, and American and Italian yards, including the Palmer Johnson, Mangusta and Sunseeker brands, have a particularly good reputation for expertise in this style of yacht. Whether small and zippy or large and powerful there are plenty of sizes and styles on offer.
