New Boats on the Docks in Ft. Lauderdale
The Sanlorenzo 104 is making her first appearance in US waters at the Fort Lauderdale boat show. Upon entering the vessel, one is greeted with a tasteful and cool interior styled by Marty Lowe. A settee is located to port, with a TV on the starboard, making for a pleasant area to relax and enjoy conversation or watch a movie. Forward there is a L-shaped settee with a high-low table that makes a great area for casual meals. The master stateroom is forward, with a centerline queen berth and plenty of stowage. Below, there are four staterooms, two with twin berths and two with queen berths, and Mielle washer and dryer located in the pleasantly large foyer. On the top deck there is an exterior helm station and a more formal dining area, great for enjoying the weather and alfresco meals. www.sanlorenzoyacht.com

For the first time ever, the motoryacht Laurel was opened to the press, and earlier this morning we toured the 240-foot vessel built by Pacific Northwest boatbuilder Delta. She is absolutely stunning, and while touring the interior or admiring her deep blue hull, one would be hard pressed to believe that she was launched in 2006 and has put 120,000 nautical miles under her keel — from Alaska to the Patagonia to the Amazon River. Tasteful and refined, she is a true gentleman’s yacht.
It’s fall boat show season and, as you can imagine, there are more odious duties in life than walking around looking at boats and being paid to do so. Editor's Letter from our November 2012 issue.
There are few sights more mournful than a yard full of boats on jack stands. Luckily, there’s no better way to let the healing begin than by attending a fall boat show. Editor's Letter from our October 2012 issue.
