A new Aussie-owned and designed brand, Belize Motoryachts, launched their first yacht, a 52 sedan, just a year ago, followed by a flying-bridge version this summer. Wes Moxley and Lee Dillion, two veteran Australian builders, started the company, which is now owned by Riviera. “There’s a lot of fiberglass in the world,” Moxley says. “We want to stand out.” The high-quality boats take some design elements from the art deco period. The seakindly hull is designed for pod drives and tops out at about 30 knots. Look for the first Belize to hit U.S. shores in 2013.
New nomenclature is the least striking element of the Azimut S7 slated to make her debut at Cannes in September. Have a look at how huge expanses of glass in both hull- and house sides fit together in an intriguing shape that delivers big-time in the interior spaces.
