At this year’s edition of the Miami Boat Show, we had the opportunity to see a number of stunning US debuts. There was also an impressive display of new boats, marine engines, onboard electronics and accessories. As well as appearances from renowned manufacturers, national and international dealers, and even fans of our brand.
With so much to see and do, we didn’t have time to get bored; on the contrary, we are already thinking about next year’s edition of the show. In this new article, we’ll be sharing with you some of the most interesting boats that have been recently showcased at the largest boat and yacht event in the world in Miami.
Azimut 68 FLY
The latest model of the Azimut Yachts Flybridge collection didn't make its debut at the Miami Boat Show: it already had its world premiere at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2021. Nonetheless, it surely turned heads at the major boat and yacht show.
The new model of the Flybridge collection is a 68 ft 10 in (20,98 m) yacht designed around the desires and needs of nowadays owners, who constantly demand better solutions in this smaller boat segment.
Achille Salvagni designed its interior in three elegant layouts to meet different onboard lifestyles, whereas Alberto Mancini, inspired by car design, modernized its exterior surfaces with sharper cleaner lines. Plus, the design of the hull has been optimized for better performance and cruising satisfaction.
The 68 Azimut Fly is a very efficient vessel with a special focus on sustainability. The extensive use of carbon fiber in the yacht’s topside (superstructure, hardtop, and some areas of the deck) helps reduce fuel consumption, making it a more environmentally friendly watercraft.
The new 35 ft (10.77 m) Oceanis 34.1 from renowned boat builder Beneteau is the ideal holiday boat for sailing lovers and adventure seekers. With unique design by naval architect Marc Lombard, the Oceanis 34.1, the 7th-generation Oceanis range, is a sleeker and lighter vessel with plenty of interior space, more sail area and space in the bow for better performance and memorable days on the water.
A new deck layout offers maximum comfort and onboard safety when people onboard move around the boat, take the helm, or are anchored, while living onboard. Besides, its uncluttered cockpit is ideal for relaxation, with the lack of a backstay making it easy to get to the aft swim platform.
The ropes for the halyard and the furling system are carefully placed forward of the cockpit, whereas on each side there is a winch that helps the helmsman set the foresails. The Oceanis 34.1 comes equipped with a basic suit of sails including a 334-square foot mainsail and a 197-square-foot-jib, however, owners can add a 280-square foot genoa, as well as extra winches and a bowsprit to keep the downwind sails attached.
NAUTA Design's interiors are elegant and contemporary with walnut or light oak finishes, and there is an intelligent use of space. Despite being a compact vessel, the Oceanis 34.1 can come in a three-cabin layout (master forward stateroom and twin cabins aft), whilst in the salon, two more crew members can sleep in a pinch, and a designed chart table with folding top can be converted into two extra single berths. Moreover, the deck hatches and many hull and roof portholes fill the interior with natural light and ventilation, making the vessel exceptionally bright. It is the perfect boat for a couple or a small family out on coastal cruising due to its maximum comfort, easiness of use, and bright well ventilated interior.
A46 Luxury Tender
Powered by two Volvo Penta IPS D6 engines, each rated at 480HP (2x353 KW) for optimal navigation and low fuel consumption, the A46 Luxury Tender, the newborn of the Cranchi Yachts, is ideal for day or express cruising.
Featuring an original design by Christian Grande, this brand new 46 ft (14.25 m) watercraft embodies strength and beauty with beautiful horizontal lines, a suggestive chromatic effect created by carbon fiber, and a full-width hardtop.
Guests and owners can cross the entire vessel safely without encountering obstacles, moving from the middle of the boat (where there is a bar, a table, and the steering console) towards the bow and the stern, where they will find more seating areas and other comfortable spaces. In the A46 Luxury Tender, safety converges with socializing moments, pleasure, and tranquility.
Its light-resistant hi-tech cover, which opens in a fraction of seconds to create light or shadow, as well as its steering console equipped with a wraparound windscreen and a stunning T-Top are only some of the wow factors of the A46 Luxury Tender. Besides, through the Cranchi Atelier program, owners can customize hull colors and decor to make their vessels more personalized and match their style.
The innovative Cranchi Yachts E26 Rider is an elegant and sporty bowrider equipped with an outboard engine. Its versatility makes this contemporary classic boat model the perfect day cruiser or luxury tender vessel.
In the bow deck, there is a lounge area on the same level as the cockpit that can be safely reached from an opening in the center of the boat. Inside the vessel, all areas are harmoniously distributed: including its elegant cockpit, fully equipped with functional features for maximum convenience and efficiency. Besides, the two symmetrically opposite-facing sofas on each wall can be used as seats or chaise-longues, while the pilot and co-pilot swivel chairs can be turned towards the sofas to expand the entertainment area of the vessel. Left to the navigation area, there is a restroom and a small sink.
Its outboard engine located at the stern of the watercraft between two decks can be used for onboard access, either when approaching or leaving beach areas or getting in/out of the water with the help of a retractable ladder.
Leopard 46 Powercat
Leopard has recently made the global debut of its brand-new 46 Powercat in Miami, the second in a new range of powercats after the award-winning Leopard 53 Powercat. Built by South African catamaran builder Robert & Caine, this new model has an overall length of 46 ft 4 in (14.13 m) and offers extra style, luxury, outdoor living spaces, and comfort.
The long rectangular glazing on the size of each hull allows different opening portlight configurations, while the vertical coachroof flat toughened windows were designed to improve onboard clarity. Besides, it comes with a sprawling 24 ft 1-in beam (7.34 m) for extra interior space and in a three or four-cabin layout.
The three-cabin owner’s suite includes a walk-in closet, desk, and double vanity, while the guest cabins are also spacious and have island berths and en-suite heads so that owners and guests feel as if they were at home. In terms of performance, its twin 250-hp Yanmars reach a top speed of 24-mph, whereas its large fuel tank and efficient hulls deliver 1,600 nautical miles.
Galeon 800 FLY
The Galeon 800 FLY (Galeon Yachts) is the result of many years of experience: Tony Castro's unparalleled sporty design using soft lines and rounded carbon fiber structure elements and an impressive performance confer this yacht a sense of space and luxury similar to a megayacht. Its advanced electronics and technology make it an extremely safe and comfortable vessel for everyone onboard. Besides, it has many customizing options to meet the owners’ needs, from materials to options and colors.
The 83 ft (25.35 m) yacht is fully-equipped with a bar, sunbathing area, four adjustable tables, and two big semicircular sofas surrounding the jacuzzi. Its interior is also worth mentioning: it resembles the best apartments with a fully equipped galley with kitchen island, a comfortable sofa with coffee table and even a big dining table for eight people (all located next to the double helmsman’s station), a beautiful living room with elegant sofas, large windows, pull-out TV, bar, and toilet, and four spacious en-suite cabins lower deck (a master cabin with double bed and walk-in wardrobe amidships), and in the bow area a VIP cabin also with double bed, from where owners and guests can admire stars through the large glazing overhead, and two guest cabins with separate beds that turn into a big bed, when combined.
The stern lounging area is also quite impressive: it offers a variety of seating options and headroom with elegant decor and finishings such as tailor-made upholstery, a hand-laid teak deck, wooden table, comfortable armchairs, a spacious hydraulic platform to store equipment, a hidden entrance for the crew, two beds, bathroom, wardrobe, kitchenette, and sofa with folding table.
Regal 38 FLY
The 38.9 ft (11.81 m) new Regal 38 FLY, a luxury performance flybridge yacht and one of the 13 models displayed by Regal Boats, made its official debut at the Miami Boat Show, allowing visitors to experience the fine craftsmanship of the American manufacturer.
Its smooth modern lines and intelligent use of onboard space (its convex outer perimeter helps increase space) make the 38 Fly an excellent choice for yacht lovers. Besides, its hydraulic swim platform that goes deep into the water is a very useful feature in water sports, water activities, and onboard entertainment. Features such as an aft cockpit refrigerator, a complete galley, and an astonishing aft stateroom with a king bed that can easily be converted into twin beds and hidden storage space, and a 32" TV offer everyone onboard maximum comfort and convenience.
In terms of performance, owners can choose between twin 600 horsepower Twin Volvo D4 Diesel 300 OX engines with EVC joystick or 860 horsepower Twin Volvo V8 430 EVC DP engines with joystick cat, which imply losing some space. Moreover, the watercraft comes equipped with the Seakeeper 3 Stabilization System, a feature that can eliminate up to 95% of boar roll.
True North 34 Outboard Express
Built by highly experienced craftsmen in Largo (Florida), the True North 34 Outboard Express by Catalina is an impressive 34 ft (10.59 m) yacht with beautiful finishes, outstanding engineering, efficiency, and maneuverability.
This versatile vessel allows owners and guests go anywhere they desire in style and with an incredible performance of its twin 300 horsepower outboard motors, whether navigating on flat water in fair weather or on a stormy sea in rough weather. Inspired by boats that navigate year-long rain or shine, its sharp plumb bow slices through the waves rather than pound on top of them, whereas the balanced displacement of the hull and its flatter aft sections provide boaters a stable ride no matter the weather.
Besides, its spacious interior has been specially designed for adventure so that boaters can experience nature without renouncing comfort. Its one-level living spaces (including galley) connect with the spacious cockpit located in the stern to enhance the intimacy of boat operators and guests with the surrounding areas. It is the perfect vessel to bring friends and family along and share unforgettable moments eating together, socializing, and having fun. Popular features like its galley-up configuration (a sort of open interior concept), large enough and fully-equipped to cook the best meals, and the Outboard Express will help everyone make the most out of their time on the water.
