A luxury yacht is that type of yacht that stands out for its performance and its length. For their careful designs, large size and high price, these units can be considered as authentic floating palaces.

During the last decades there has been an increase in the number and popularity of large luxury yachts with a tendency to gigantism in their maximum sizes.

They are particularly abundant in the Mediterranean and Caribbean seas, although it is increasingly easy to find them in the most remote areas of the world. With the increasing demand for luxury yachts there has been an increase in custom yacht boatbuilding companies, merchants and shipyards specialized in the maintenance of these ships. The luxury yacht charter and yacht charter companies are located predominantly in the United States and Western Europe, but are growing in Australia, Asia and Eastern Europe. European manufacturers such as Ferretti, Benetti, Feadship, Lürssen, Oceanco, Amels, Blohm + Voss are the companies that dominate the megayacht construction market.

In Spain there are few units built, mainly made in Galician shipyards such as MetalShips & Docks or Freire Shipyard, also noteworthy firms dedicated to the maintenance and refurbishment of these units, such as Astilleros de Mallorca or Marina Barcelona 92; As well as design firms such as Nauticidesign, Oliverdesign, Acubens or Barracuda.
