Maritimo's new Maritimo 56 will make its U.S. debut at the Miami show this year.

A dynamo from down under, the Cheoy Lee Serenity 68 Long Range will make her show debut this year at Miami. The Serenity 68 owes her new look to the collaboration of David Bentley Industrial Design from Australia, structural design team High Modulus from New Zealand, and interior designer Sylvia Bolton Corporation. The result is a luxurious yacht that is as comfortable crossing oceans as it is cruising coastal hot spots or island hopping in the Caribbean. And, with a fuel burn of about eight gallons an hour at eight knots, according to the company, she is a economical cruising yacht. www.cheoyleena.com
