About Luxurylaunches

Luxurylaunches was started in 2006 with a simple goal to be an online publication where lifestyle enthusiasts can stay informed on the latest in the world of luxury and opulence. Over the years we have won many awards, accolades and above all a loyal readership from across the globe who frequent our website for unbiased and detailed reporting of the finest products and services in the world.

Luxurylaunches is the essential guide to the finer things in life.

We embarked on our journey fueled by a fascination for the opulent and the luxurious, a curiosity that swiftly blossomed into a comprehensive exploration of the lifestyles of the ultra-wealthy. Our scope has broadened to include the lavish ‘billionaire toys,’ from superyachts stretching beyond the length of football fields to private jets that embody the splendor of airborne palaces.

Since our early days, Luxurylaunches has steadily grown from a passionate collective of writers to a respected source of luxury news, now with 12 journalists at its core. Our collaboration with a wide network of contributors worldwide has been instrumental in our development. Recognition for our work has come from esteemed publications, with mentions in outlets such as CNN, Bloomberg, BBC, Fortune, and the NY Post. We are honored by these acknowledgments and remain dedicated to delivering insightful content to our readers.
