Dock after dock at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show will be filled with brokerage yachts of all shapes and sizes. One that’s well worth a stop and a serious look is the 154-foot Admiral Ohana, which will be on display with Northrop and Johnson.
Why yes, that sound you hear is sparks flying as we rub our hands together with giddy excitement about the new yachts that are scheduled to premiere at this month’s Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
Here’s a look at 10 new models that we’re eager to get onboard and check out:
Here’s a brokerage opportunity that doesn’t come around every day: a chance to own a pair of Lazzara 80 motoryachts.
Jody Lee, a 2004 build, and Passion, a 2005 build, are both currently for sale through Lazzara Lenton Yachts in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Jody Lee is listed at an asking price of $2.35 million, and Passion’s owner is asking $2.49 million. Both are Open Bridge Grand Salon models with a pair of 1,550-hp Caterpillar C30 diesels.
In a recent issue of our print magazine, we told you about the 129-foot Newcastle Safira, a sweet new eco-friendly explorer yacht that spent this past summer on charter in Greenland. Safira has made her way back to North America and is going to be available for tours at this month’s Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show before she heads off for a winter of chartering in Panama, the San Blas Islands and possibly Costa Rica.
If you’ve been drooling over the pages of our October issue, which featured a full review of the Azimut 80 Flybridge and her optional 1,800-hp MAN engines, then it’s time to book your plane ticket to this month’s Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, where the version with standard twin 1,550-hp MANs will be on display.
With the twin 1,800 MANs, the Azimut 80 Flybridge has a top speed of 31 knots (and the cost of the boat goes up by $140,000). The standard powerplants offer a top hop of 27 knots with a base price of $5,125,000.
