Superyacht sector growth between now and 2032

Superyacht mega yacht grow

Allied Market Research, a renowned UK-based market research firm specializing in global industries, predicts that the global superyacht sector will achieve an astounding value of US$25.7 billion annually by 2032, marking a substantial increase from its US$10.3 billion valuation in 2022.

This upswing corresponds to an impressive compound annual growth rate nearing 10%. The report underscores that the burgeoning wealth among ultra-high-net-worth individuals, coupled with the expansion of tourist destinations and opulent accommodations, is driving this notable expansion.

Within its extensive 280-page ‘Superyacht Market’ report, the focus centers on ‘standard’ superyachts ranging from 30 to 80 meters (98-262 feet), encompassing both motorized and sailing vessels available for private ownership or charter.

The report spotlights 10 pivotal ‘market leaders,’ including a prominent Dutch builder (Damen Yachting), a noticeable absence of German builders, and a substantial presence of Italian shipyards. Italy leads globally in production volume, while Germany and the Netherlands excel in crafting highly customized yachts, often exceeding 80 meters in length.

Allied Market Research anticipates a surge in demand for yachts exceeding 80 meters, driven by the increasing affluence of individuals seeking larger, exceptionally luxurious yachts.

Interestingly, the allure of high-end yachting for the super-rich extends beyond navigation; it embodies accessibility. According to the report, “Individuals desire seamless connectivity wherever they go, and superyachts are outfitted with advanced satellite systems.” This enhancement in communication capabilities worldwide significantly contributes to the industry’s growth.

Explosive growth in yacht charters is also noted. While owning a yacht may be financially daunting for some billionaires, the charter market is booming, offering week-long experiences that can cost millions but are increasingly accessible to affluent clientele.

Sustainability has become a paramount concern in the sector, urging builders to innovate with hybrid propulsion systems, recycled materials, printed marble, and energy-efficient appliances, as outlined in the report.

The report profiles 10 industry-leading companies such as San Lorenzo, Sunseeker, Damen Yachting, Ocean Alexander, Horizon Yacht USA, Ferretti SpA, Azimut & Benetti, Overmarine Group, and others, highlighting their contributions to the evolving market landscape.

However, challenges loom on the horizon, notably operational and maintenance costs, including crew salaries, fuel, insurance, dock fees, and repairs, which significantly impact overall ownership expenses.

Industry initiatives to mitigate these costs have spurred innovations in financing models and shared ownership structures, reflecting ongoing adaptations within the superyacht industry to meet the demands of a growing and discerning clientele.
