The Yachts of Instagram: What’s Hot Heading Into 2018?

Yachts might be the perfect vehicles to help us escape our stressful, ever-changing lives, but being leagues away from shore doesn’t mean these luxury vessels are insulated from the trends happening on land. Seaworthy design, technology, and fashion are always evolving, and yacht builders are making spectacular boats to keep up.

You don’t need to look any further than instagram to see these new features in action. Let’s check out the new shape of #luxury at sea.

Environmentalism doesn’t stop at the shoreline. That’s why forward-thinking companies like Solarwave and Greenline are developing eco-friendly boats that don’t depend on fossil fuels. Best of all, these hybrid and solar-powered systems are nearly silent.



Taking a break from life on land doesn’t mean you can skip your workout. Today’s yachts are being built with on board gyms and sports facilities, so you can skip sunbathing and go for a run or shoot some hoops.

Yacht passengers want the fun of a theme park without the lines. Why go to the thrills when you can bring the thrills to you? Waterslides, trampolines, and jet skis are a must for an exhilarating ocean party.

Whether it’s micro-apartments or tiny houses, millennials are all about squeezing functionality into small spaces. That’s why today’s yachts feature space-saving fold-out balconies and private spas in unusual places.

In the interior, design trends like minimalism and scandinavian style aren’t showing any signs of slowing. And toward the aft, the beach deck will continue to be a popular feature on larger vessels.



No matter what changes are coming to luxury boats in the next few years, quality and dependability will always be the name of the game. For more information about quality marine enclosure panels or yacht fabric materials, visit or
