The Future of Yachting: Sailing Towards Innovation and Sustainability

The world of superyachts faces a stark choice: Either become sustainable or disappear

Pepe García-Aubert, president & CEO of the MB92 Group.

The world of yachting has always been synonymous with luxury, prestige, and exclusivity. However, we can no longer ignore the necessity for a more sustainable design within our industry. As individuals, we are well aware of the challenges we are facing worldwide. As professionals, we witness this utter necessity to move towards a more sustainable and technology-driven future. At Stars Yachting, we know that the yachting industry is also undergoing a transformation. 

Let’s explore the emerging trends and advancements that are shaping the future of yachting. From sustainable design and technology integration, let’s see what’s changing consumer preferences.

 A long time research for a more sustainable yacht design

In the future, yachts are likely to be designed with sustainability in mind. Eco-friendly materials, renewable energy sources, and efficient hull designs are in designers mind for quite a while. Shipbuilders are already experimenting with carbon-neutral yachts, electric propulsion systems, and lightweight materials. They tend to make vessels more energy-efficient, especially through solar energy. 

On that very question of propulsion Porsche has announced they are developing an electric sports boat, based on their Macan EV drive tech.

 Going forward: autonomous Yachts, AI, AR and VR

 hese topics are everywhere in the news. Why wouldn’t they impact yachting? Spoiler alert: they do. The future of yachting is likely to witness the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) and automation. Before reaching to fully autonomous yachts equipped with sophisticated sensors and navigation systems, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning will affect and enhance trip planning, full consumption optimisation or maintenance costs, for example in the Air Conditioning systems. Therefore it will enhance safety and reduce the need for extensive crew onboard.

On the other hand AR and VR technologies will actually redefine the way yachts are designed and sold. Prospective buyers will be able to virtually explore different yacht models, customize interiors, and experience the vessel’s features, providing an immersive buying process. Shipyards can also leverage these technologies to streamline production processes and improve collaboration among design teams.

 Embracing Green Technologies remains complex

 Advancements in green technologies are revolutionizing the yachting industry. Solar panels, like with Sunreef Yachs, wind turbines, and hybrid propulsion systems are reducing the dependency on fossil fuels and minimise greenhouse gas emissions. Many builders, like Alva have their compass set on electric propulsion Furthermore, innovative waste management systems will ensure responsible disposal and recycling of waste on board. But let’s face the truth: building a sustainable boat remains a challenge as the ressources used (wood, fiberglass and so on) are not that easy to renew or recycle. 

For that matter, Marine Shift 360 developed a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) sustainability tool . It is set for a better understanding of the environmental footprint of products and processes.

 Of course there are many others topics that are pointing out the revolution that stands ahead of yachting. Driven by advancements in technology, a growing focus on sustainability, and changing consumer preferences, yacht design will become more eco-friendly, integrating green technologies and AI for improved efficiency and safety. Personalization and customization will redefine luxury, allowing yacht owners to create unique experiences onboard. 

Doing so, the yachting industry is setting sail towards a brighter, greener, and more promising future, and Stars Yachting will be part of it.

Introducing: STARS Yachting

18 January 2023

It is with great pleasure that we announce the launching of STARS Yachting. We specialise in sales of luxury yachts. Very soon we will have a dedicated charter section as well, with a range of yachts going from smaller short-term/day charters to longer weekly charters. This is a further extension of the STARS Group. The STARS Group consists of 8 companies, offering a variety of services which include: supercar sales, real estate sales, car workshop, aviation charter and management, and more! In this way, we are able to offer the best possible service yet on the market.


Jonathan Cecotto, General Manager: “After working with a couple of yacht brokerage companies, I took the decision to partner with my brother Johnny. In this way, under the same roof of the Group, we are able to offer our clients whatever luxury and every day product they may need. When the clients are happy with us, they would like to stay under the same family and we are able to make this possible. A full 360 degrees service.

Even though the company just started out with Yachting Services, the sales sector is not new for us. The background comes from a stable platform and we are satisfied of the achievements so far. We are able to put ourselves in the client’s shoes, to give them the customer experience they are looking for.”

In the next weeks, we will be announcing an addition to our team. Increasing also our yachts for sale, and like previously mentioned, a dedicated charter section is soon to arrive as well. Join our newsletter to keep up to date with the latest news!
