Heat Wave: Highlights from the Miami Boat Show

Heat Wave: Highlights from the Miami Boat Show

February 21, 2020 by Mike Espindle

The annual Miami Boat Show just concluded in Florida, and once again, it offered a particularly luxurious opportunity to get a first-hand-on-deck look at some of the yachting world’s best, with most of these extreme vessels arriving in the U.S. for the first time. Here are some of our favorites:

The “queen of the show” for many was the Sunreef 80 (above). A very minimalist and modern take on a traditional catamaran sailer. Her simple elegant lines bely her size and performance. Looking like a modernist three-piece “stack” with a spacious top-deck salon and bridge, the enormous and tall hulls provide an unexpected volume to deliver cabins, including a spacious master suite, with amenities you’d expect in a mono-hull vessel. sunreef-yachts.com

Alternative power is a huge development in the luxury auto world; Serenity Yachts brings that movement to the ocean. The Serenity 64 (above) uses its ample sky-facing real estate to house a series of solar panels that power electric hybrid engines and all of the on-board passenger’s power needs. Basically, a zero-emissions vessel! serenityyachts.com

Speaking of the auto world, the gorgeous Lexus LY 650 (above), a collaboration between the esteemed Asian carmaker and Marquis Yachts, was on hand in Miami. Elegant and standing beam-to-beam with the best of maritime design, there is an undeniable automotive flair to her lines, color ways and architecture that sets her apart. lexus.com/LY-650

As predicted, both of Azimut’s new offerings, the Verve 40 (above) and Atlantis 45 (below) drew a great deal of crowd appreciation. The Verve 40 is the maker’s first outboard weekender vessel, while the Atlantis is more of a two-cabin day runner with plenty of deck and sunspace. azimutyachts.com
