The 58th edition of the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show will see an additional day added to the event schedule. This year opening its doors on Wednesday 1st November - as opposed to the usual first Thursday of the month - the show will draw to a close on 5th November. Here we look at our Top 5 must-see superyachts on display in Florida.
Featuring an Espen Oeino exterior and a Christian Liaigre interior, Cloudbreak was completed by German yard Abeking & Rasmussen in 2016. Her owner wasted no time in testing out her explorer capabilities, heading to Greenland for her first expedition.
Feadship’s Vanish was delivered in mid-2016 and features a blend of classic, contemporary lines from Eidsgaard Design, who also undertook her interior. She features some Feadship firsts, including a freestanding staircase stretching across three decks.
Completed in 2008, Silver Cloud is the first super stable SWATH (Small Waterplane Area Twin Hull) superyacht from Abeking & Rasmussen. With an in-house designed exterior, she features an interior from Kirschstein Design with Spectrum Interior Design.
Completed earlier this year, the Westport 112 is a great example of Westport's design and construction capabilities. She accommodates up to eight guests on board as well as a crew of five, with a top speed of 25 knots and a range of 2,500 nm at 12 knots.
The latest in ISA Yachts’ Sport 120 line - now consisting of 11 vessels - Clorinda was launched earlier this year in Ancona and reaches top speeds of 32 knots, with a cruising speed of 27 knots. Andrea Vallicelli is responsible for her exterior design.
