Well-done motoryachts show their true colors in versatility—great outdoor spaces, some range to broaden the horizons, and all the comforts of home in luxurious accommodations. What you do with them is limited only by your time and imagination.
For those looking for a flying bridge that really flies, may we suggest you put the Azimut 60 on your short list. Meanwhile, her larger stablemate, the Benetti 132 Vision is sure to tempt the eye with astonishing technology in a sublime package.
Get into the details of the Fairline 50 Squadron and you may find yourself losing sight of the big picture. We advise you to take your place at the flying bridge helm, breath deeply—and enjoy the change in perspective.
Look at the Maritimo M58 in a certain light and you’ll take away a new understanding of what it means to go boating (see an in-depth feature on page 72). The builder also brought an M45 along, with space that compares favorably to her larger siblings.
Pause on the dock and have a look around for the Marquis 630—it’s got a pretty unmistakable black hardtop holding court over a shimmering paint job. Expect a top speed of 31.9 knots.
Monte Carlo Yachts has had quite a run, rolling out their world-shaking MCY 65 and MCY 76 in rapid succession (the MCY 70 made the scene in Europe this summer). Pay attention, as the line from the Italian division of French builder Beneteau is growing fast. Sister boat line Flyer Gran Turismo brings their 49 front and center—have a look around, you may like what you see.
If there were any design challenges on the Sessa C54, you can bet the boys in Italy came up with a cool solution. Meanwhile, the Hampton 620 Pilothouse Motoryacht makes the crew look forward to long cruising legs.
Don’t try to put the Mangusta 165 in a box—world-beating speed and a devilishly sleek profile mean you’re sure to turn heads anywhere she takes you.
Ferretti Yachts brought a bevy of boats, including the 800, the 530, and the 620, but we think it’s the Ferretti 720 that will stop you in your tracks with forward-thinking interior styling topping off a very capable combination of hull and propulsion.
If you like large numbers of people, the open-bridge version of the Riviera 53 offers plenty of room for a crowd, whether up on top, in the cockpit, or inside.
Where better to look to the future than to see the Cheoy Lee Alpha 76 Flybridge. After the debut of the sleek express version last year, the bar has been set for innovation.
Check out the Princess 60 Flybridge, a prime example of design evolution. If you like your yachts super-sized, step up to the Imperial Princess, a 131-foot trideck 40M motoryacht.
Why change what works? The Krogen Express 52 maintains a standard for design that set a high bar for versatility with a hull that puts up numbers for both speed and efficiency.
Sunseeker’s Manhattan 63 puts the options in front of you—conventional propulsion or pods, three or four staterooms, a view of the busy harbor or a secluded anchorage. The rest is up to you. The Manhattan 73 is also on hand if you need more choices. And as if there weren’t enough decisions to make, Sunseeker also brings along a 34 Meter motoryacht.
And the Ocean Alexander 120 makes her presence known, at this, her world debut.
