With this year's Miami Yacht Show already underway, we round up the must-see charter yachts on display at the multi-site event.
Visitors to Miami's annual yachting showcase will be keen to check out the wealth of vessels on display, spread between the Venetian and MacArthur Causeways on Biscayne Bay.
But, as always, the true stars of the show will be the attending superyachts. Therefore, here’s a cross section of the best yachts attending the Miami Yacht Show, as well as Superyacht Miami, to be held in conjunction with the main event at Island Gardens Deep Harbour on Watson Island.
After her star turn at the Monaco yacht show in September, the 115m (377ft) Lürssen superyacht AHPO is making a splash across the pond as the largest yacht on display at this year’s Miami Boat Show. The award-winning yacht is sure to win hearts amongst show-goers, who will be in raptures over her sophisticated interiors and state-of-the-art amenities.
Having scooped the top prize at the recent BOAT Design & Innovation award ceremony in Italy for her exterior design, as well as the Judges’ Commendation award for Artisanship of her beautiful interiors, she is certain to impress lucky ticket holders at this year’s event.
The second largest superyacht on display is the 95m (312ft) superyacht KISMET. Another award-winning Lürssen build, she will be sure to attract plenty of attention berthed in Miami with her bold exterior, which is defined by high contrasts, lots of glass and a long, prowling bow.
Visitors lucky enough to step aboard will be wowed by her ‘caviar and champagne' themed interiors. Reymond Langton Design used gold metal and honey tones to create a luxurious yet warm atmosphere, enhanced by Art Deco furnishings such as glittering chandeliers and grand fireplaces.
Always proving to be popular are her piano bar and multi-storey video walls. But she also offers a variety of deck areas charterers never fail to fall in love with, from the sundeck pool and Jacuzzi to the two helipads to the outdoor fire pit. The sumptuous lower deck spa facilities are always a winner too.
Marking her debut at the show, the 63m (207ft) motor yacht UTOPIA IV will undoubtedly prove a head turner with her sporty good looks and charter-focused amenities. Launched in 2018 by the Rossinavi shipyard, she is also multi-award-winning: gaining the accolades of World Superyachts Award “2019 Semi-Displacement or Planing Motor Yachts – 40m and above” and the International Superyacht Society's Awards of “2019 Best Power 40m – 65m to name but a few.
Her highlights are numerous, but visitors will particularly love her expansive beach club. The transom folds down to provide a huge swim platform (754 square feet) coupled with a bar and relaxation area.
Another debut at the show, Gulf Craft’s Majesty 120 yacht ROCKET ONE has been making waves ever since her launch in 2022, as well as picking up recent gongs for her naval architecture and eco-friendly credentials.
The yacht boasts refined interiors courtesy of the talented Cristiano Gatto, showcasing subtle monochromatic themes with plenty of light offered through her full-length windows. With oodles of alfresco living areas, from her convivial sundeck to her beach club haven, she is not one to be missed while at the show.
For those who like the thrill of high speed cruising across the waves, this 32m (106ft) Sanlorenzo yacht offers all that and much more besides. Delivered in 2017 as part of the yard’s award-winning 106 series, she features an elegant, yet sporty exterior and boasts a top speed of 28 knots, not to mention a vast array of spacious amenities and impressive leisure entertainment facilities.
On board highlights for show-goers include her sun-kissed flybridge complete with a flat-screen TV, cocktail bar and alfresco dining arrangement for more informal meals, as well as a shaded waterside beach club with a generous swim platform for easy access into the water and onto the yacht’s toys.
One style of yacht that is fast becoming a staple at elite yacht shows is the catamaran, with the Sunreef Yachts 24m (79ft) yacht PRONTO proving an excellent example. Not only does she offer exceptionally smooth cruising, but she can also access areas most other displacement superyachts cannot by virtue of her incredibly shallow draft, making her the ideal cruiser for the tropical paradise islands of the Caribbean and Bahamas, and beyond.
The semi-custom layout is also primed for alfresco living, enhanced by her 12-meter beam, providing ample space in which to relax and unwind. Visitors to the show will be wowed by her proportions, including her refined accommodation areas.
They will also be impressed by her aft platform that doubles as an open beach club offering a beautiful waterside area, with further space for relaxation offered on her sun-drenched bow, featuring a sunken lounge and Jacuzzi.
