The 57th Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show will open tomorrow, seeing hundreds of yachts alongside hundreds of industry insiders gather together for one of the biggest showcases of yachting magnificence in the calendar.
Cheers 46 The largest of the Denison collection in show is 2014, Cheers 46. A Benetti Veloce 140, this magnificent boat is a semi-custom yacht with a hull designed by Pierluigi Ausonio Naval Architecture Studio and the Azimut Benetti Research and Development Centre. Making an appearance for sale this year, the five staterooms of the boat are all en-suite, with highlights including the tropical light-grey stain Kato wood interior and colossal on-bow entertainment area with pool.
Namoh Built by Cheoy Lee and launched in 2003, Namoh represents one of yachting’s great ownership opportunities. With an appealing combination of both sheer volume and unprecedented style designed by the Dutch hand of Frank Mulder, the main salon is a firm favourite for hosting and is complemented with an inviting sky lounge to maximise outdoor appeal. Major changes to the interior fabrics, carpeting and artwork earlier this year have prepared her well for FLIBS.
Azimut 85 Since her delivery in 1999, Azimut 85 has spent the last few years cruising the Mediterranean. Coming back to her home in Miami; her owners and Denison bring her to FLIBS for sale. Included is a 2008 385 Williams Jet Tender making the perfect edition to this 80-90ft Fly Bridge Motor Yacht. On the inside a light, airy and inviting saloon awaits, whilst the sophistication of the owner’s stateroom is perfectly blended with an excellent use of space.
Silvana Undergoing various customizations and changes since 2007, Silvana is an enviable example of the best-selling Horizon E82 motor yacht. Including a compete refit, every system and interior on board is finished to the highest specification. The covered teak deck has ample dining space for entertaining whilst on the inside; understated elegance is created by the contrast of rich satin finished Makore wood and neutral stone work and furnishings; a must see.
In the space of just two weeks, Lürssen Yachts has introduced three different top secret yachts – each well over 100 metres – to the water in various forms of construction while still keeping their cards close to their chest.
Only 2 days later, another yacht estimated to be well over 100 metres – widely reported as 130 metres – was visible for only two days; however, details are yet to be confirmed about the identity of the top secret project and remain speculative. Watch the full video by DrDuu here.
Furthermore, Refit has become a core business for Lürssen. During the last winter 8 yachts between 40 and 110 meters have used the Lürssen facilities for modifications and maintenance works. Amongst them are some of the world’s most beautiful yachts such as Phoenix², , Radiant and .
The prolific activity of Lurssen Yachts within the Top 100 sector is continuously changing the largest yachts list, and we look forward to bringing you regular project updates, as and when they emerge.
Westport Yachts is heading to the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show with a number of exciting superyachts; however, with a range of models on display, we pinpoint our focus on the production builder’s stunning 40 metre (130 ft) tri-deck ahead of tomorrow’s superyacht showcase.
Those walking the docks of Fort Lauderdale will most likely be aware of the North West-based brand Westport; however, after its debut in 2001, the Westport 130 has become a firm favourite in the eyes of qualified visitors stepping on board.
The precision and control of the entire construction process defies the production builder’s nature, and adds a fully custom feel to the on board experience. The exceptional craftsmanship, five-stateroom arrangement with on-deck master stateroom, large salon, dining room and expansive deck areas further the feeling of being on board a much larger yacht, and enhances the entire experience of cruising.
Able to accommodate ten guests, the naval architecture by William Garden and exterior styling by Taylor Olson and Westport Yachts creates a stable, spacious and stylish home on the water which reflects the classic, and sophisticated American superyacht lifestyle of Westport Yachts.
Superyacht In Focus: Galactica Super Nova at FLIBS
At 70 metres (229”66’ft), Galactica Supernova is the largest superyacht to emerge from Heesen Yachts to date. One of the largest superyachts on display at the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show, we look at the high speed, sleek and spectacular Galactica Supernova ahead of her US debut.
Aside from practicalities, Galactica Supernova’s interior configuration has been designed to comfortably accommodate up to 12 guests overnight in 6 cabins, made up of a master suite, 1 VIP stateroom, and 4 double cabins. She is also capable of carrying up to 16 crew members in 8 cabins to ensure a tailored luxury yacht experience. The yacht’s interior has been designed by Sinot Yacht Design and their signature style is reflected in its sleek silhouettes and utilisation of space.
Its advanced technology includes the revolutionary Fast Displacement Hull, plus fixed-pitch propellers combined with a Rolls Royce central booster jet as well as an innovative Fast Displacement Hull Form, designed by Van Oossanen Naval Architects.
Galactica Supernova offers 357 square metres of superb deck space. From its sophisticated sundeck to the beach club, there are twelve alternatives for guests to choose, from sunbathing, and dining to the spa, Jacuzzis and jet-pool offering unrivalled space for relaxation or entertainment.
From its elevator to its helicopter landing pad, swimming pool and beach club, Galactica Supernova offers an exciting life on the water with its foredeck doubling up as a touch-and-go helipad, sunbathing area, informal dining spot or for those who want a more intimate evening, it can be transformed into an outdoor cinema.
With a 6m swim-jet infinity pool designed with a waterfall and glass-panelled bottom to ensure maximum light below, Galatcia Supernova is the perfect entertainment platform for guests wishing to enjoy the most eclectic of experiences on the water.
Antoine Larricq of Fraser Yachts Monaco represented the Owner in the purchase of the project. The Owner is a long-standing repeat client of Fraser Yachts. This is Mr Larricq’s second AMELS project sold in 13 months.
Antoine Larricq commented, “I am extremely proud to have signed another new construction project with AMELS. The shipyard has proven its ability to adapt the 65-metre Limited Editions to the client’s wishes, with a shorter building time and an extended transom accommodating a beach club with spa area. I would like to thank our Client and his Captain for an enjoyable long term collaboration. I look forward to a continuing positive and constructive relationship with the AMELS team.”
VF Yachts, the in-house Project Management division of Fraser Yachts, will undertake the Project Management of the vessel and has been working closely with the Owner and the AMELS Project team to finalise the design, based on the Owner’s experience from his previous vessels.
“This sale highlights the enduring value and top quality of AMELS Limited Editions yachts,” says AMELS Sales Manager Rose Damen. “With the proven naval architecture and engineering already in place, we can start steel-cutting straight away and she will be delivered in less than 3 years.”
The new project will be the fourth AMELS 212 built. In 2011 AMELS delivered the first AMELS 212, Imagine, whose Owner was also represented by Fraser Yachts and became Infinite Shades after being sold by Fraser Yachts earlier this year.
