Super- Mega- or Gigayachts!?

I have never heard of a distinct definition on where Super- and Megayachts starts or replaces each other. My own definition of Superyachts is based on quality combined with a certain size, normally from 80 feet upwards. Megayachts are to me all big private yachts even less super conversions. But what shall we call the new breed of giant yachts like Pelorus and Octopus?
Someone has suggested Gigayachts which I think will be appropriate. Or should we leave that to yachts above 150 m, as rumours now are saying the first 160 m is ordered?
Let´s hear your ideas!

Here you can see my 165 m concept, she looks kind of Giga, doesn´t she?

Hi Lars,

Yes, she looks very giga!!! In the "Boote Exklusiv" Lexikon is under "M"...Megayacht is standing for custom yachts to 100 metre. Gigayacht is standing for yachts 100 metre and over.

I heard a 160 m yacht is the "Platinum". She is currently in build and I heard Roman Abramovich ordered a 160 m or maybe the 147 m design from Blohm + Voss.

Thanks René, it is probably right to include Lady Moura as a Gigayacht!

Thank you, I am trying to get a 200 m yacht together right now...
But would that be a Terrayacht or what? Doesn´t sound right though, but I think we should have a name for 200 m+ yachts as well?

(Anyone that would like a higher definition jpg on the 165m yacht above, PM your e-mail address)

I think it so: Megayacht to 100m, Gigayacht 100+, Terrayacht 200+, Petayacht 300+, Exayacht 400+, Zettayacht 500+, Yotayacht 600+ (with a runway for the learjet or the private boeing ).

By the way, I have byte boat (4m)

What is that????? That "yacht" is more a swimming city than a yacht. Is that an idea only or really a project?

Great design! Crewagency, can you please tell me more about the yacht? Her length and will she be built. I recognize on her stern the name and logo of the 86m Benetti Kingdom 5KR. I have heart more rumours that her owner Prince Alwaleed is looking for a replacement, but I never seen a confirmation. Do you know more about a successor of the Kingdom 5KR?

I don't understand that there isn't a connection between your design and the Kingdom 5KR. Why did you otherwise wrote the name on the design? I can't imagine that there will be another yacht with the same name of that length. I think that the owner asked designers to draw his new yacht and he choosed another design.....could I be right???

By the way: I really like the design, do you have maybe some more drawings of it??
