The 18 biggest superyachts under construction in the world.

Every year, the world's most premium superyacht builders push the boundaries of design and construction to build the biggest superyachts in the world. German yard Lürssen has the most large-scale superyacht projects underway, claiming seven from this list, while Dutch yard Oceanco has three.
