Boat shows are officially back, and with it, the coolest and most exclusive luxury yachts are being debuted. For the 62nd annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, the world’s largest in-water show, luxury brands revealed what they have been working on, for these last months. Luxury Safes believes there are eight ground-breaking luxury yachts you need to see, enjoy!
SL 120A was released at Cannes Yachting Festival, by Sanlorenzo, and now, at Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, the brand debuted the smaller SL106A. There’s a larger garage at the stern as well as adding a 130-sq. ft. sunbathing area. In the interior, larger guest cabins, saloon, and engine room take place, as well as a dining area with mesmerizing views, as well as a lounge area connected to a fold-down terrace.
Ocean Alexander 35R
At this year’s edition of the Lauderdale show, the Taiwanese yard unveiled four new models. The one that caught our attention was the head-spinning, 116-foot 35R, with the R quite rightly standing for Revolution. With its bluff, towering bow, multiple oversized windows, and a large sky lounge, the 35R is reckoned to be as roomy as most 150-footers.
Nordhavn 80 is standing between being a superyacht on one hand, and a commercial-grade trawler on the other hand. Characterized by straighter lines, bigger windows, and portholes, and thinner mullions, this luxury yacht is one f the stars revealed at Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
Riviera 645 SUV
The next luxury yacht, Riviera 645 SUV, comes with a large, enclosed cockpit, gallery, salon, and helm station conveniently on one deck. Besides. Australia’s biggest boat builder’s new model comes with a pair of 1,550-horse MAN V12 diesel to reach a top speed of 40 mph.
Benetti Motopanfilo 37
Benetti’s new 120-foot superyacht is all about simplicity, style, and comfort. The exterior lines were modernized by Francesco Strulglia, but kept the classic elements, like the clamshell-shaped beach club. Lazzarini Pickering Architetti was responsible for the interiors.
Azimut Verve 42
The new luxury yacht presented this year is a smaller version of Azimut’s Verve 47. It features an innovative, go-faster, stepped hull design from naval architect Michael Peters, as well as deep, hull-side windows that flow all the way to the helm, letting you gaze down at the water from inside the cabin.
Instead of presenting smaller versions of previous luxury yachts, the New Jersey-based Viking Yachts decided to do the opposite and debuted a supersize of its popular Viking 54 Convertible, into the full-metal-jacket fishing battlewagon that is the brand-new 64 Convertible.
Built specially for a Texas billionaire, this luxury yacht is a unique 252-footer from the Dutch masters at Feadship, a big step up from the owner’s previous 164-foot Westship. Long, low, sleek, and understated lines are from the drawing board of Feadship’s in-house De Voogt studio, with an interior by Seattle-based Amy Halffman.
