A yacht of this size is ideal as either a starter yacht or for those looking to downsize. From motor yachts to sail yachts, and displacement, semi-displacement and planing hulls, IYC has a 20 to 30 meter yacht to suit every buyer.
It is hard to believe that a 20 to 30 meter (65feet - 98feet) yacht is now considered to be ‘pocket sized’ – even as little as 30 years ago a yacht of this size was considered to be truly enormous. But today, as yachts get bigger and bigger, smaller yachts still have plenty of appeal. An ideal choice for a couple, family or smaller groups, a 20 to 30 meter yacht offers luxurious spaces but without the running costs of a much larger yacht. With luxurious outfitting and appealing amenities, but with a much lower price tag, this is the best way to enjoy the superyachting lifestyle just on a smaller more economical scale. Despite being ‘smaller’ the average yacht in this size bracket can still welcome 6-8 guests on board, ensuring more than enough room for hosting.
Yachts of this size are mostly production or semi-custom builds, but with a plethora of options for customization it is usually the case that no two yachts are exactly the same. As an added bonus, by buying a proven yacht design you can rest assured that it has been thoroughly tested and design to stand the test of time. Popular builders in this category include Azimut, Benetti, Ferretti, Broward, Leopard, Lagoon, Mangusta, Nautors Swan, Pershing, Princess Yachts, Sanlorenzo and Sunseeker.
A yacht in the 20 to 30 meter(65feet - 98feet) size bracket is often a good stepping stone into superyachting without the need to commit to the costs of a bigger vessel. Many people opt for yachts in this size bracket as a way to try out the yachting lifestyle in a manageable way, allowing them to get a feel for their favourite aspects of yachting. A yacht of this size may also appeal to those looking to downsize from a larger yacht, allowing them to continue to enjoy the benefits of the yachting lifestyle without needing to forgo it altogether. Or of course this size may simply appeal to those who appreciate the fact that good things come in small packages!
There are many additional benefits to a smaller yacht, including a smaller crew than on bigger yachts, which is sure to appeal to those who value their privacy. A smaller crew will also mean smaller running costs. Depending on the size, design and function of the yacht, yachts of this size will usually have a crew of around two to five people, with an average crew number of three.
Smaller yachts usually have the benefit of much less restricted access to cruising grounds, and are able to visit shallow waters and smaller coves or marinas without restraint. For those who want to go everywhere without limitation then a smaller yacht is a good choice; enjoy the feeling of living life on the water, and sharing special experiences with companions. While 20 to 30m yachts are at the smaller end of superyachts there is still plenty of room to store water toys and tenders with no need to compromise on the on-water lifestyle.
