New to these shores and dripping with luxury

What they say
“First-class standards of solid, reliable and durable build quality that remain the hallmark of Taiwanese yacht building, coupled with the hallmark of the team at Supernova Yachts that stands for sheer excellence, total luxury and utter opulence.”

What we say
The Supernova Yacht Corporation were launched at the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show in 2007 by a British team and they are expanding into Europe with several dealerships.

They are importing two ranges, built in Taiwan by the well-regarded Nova Marine. The first range is called Supernova, which includes a 74, 80 and 82. The second is called Novatec, which includes 46ft and 56ft Classic Sedan pilothouses and a 48ft flybridge.

Pictured here is the 82. Like the others in the Supernova range, it is customisable inside, and this example clearly has an owner who pulls no punches when it comes to luxury fit-out. Teak, silk and marble finishes abound, with a state-of-the-art sound system, satellite plasma TVs, whirlpool baths and an outside Jacuzzi making for a suitably hedonistic experience. Owners can opt for MTU engines.
