The 26th-annual Yacht & Brokerage Show is being held in Miami Beach in less than two weeks’ time. Similar to previous years, more than 500 new and brokerage yachts and megayachts will be exhibited along the Indian Creek Waterway. The Yacht & Brokerage Show attracts a large number of U.S. buyers and an increasing number of Latin American buyers, too. Among the large yachts and megayachts expected to attract their attention:
- Mangusta 110. This is the newest model from the Overmarine Group. The Mangusta 110 is actually making her world debut. She’s the second Mangusta to feature a flying bridge. However, she preserves the brand’s emphasis on fast, open maxis. Top speed should be 33 knots at half load.
- Sanlorenzo SL 104 (pictured below). Sanlorenzo launched the first SL 104 in 2009, and the series continues to sell well. The Sanlorenzo SL 104 at the Yacht & Brokerage Show has a handful of custom features not seen on previous models. These include a fold-down terrace off the saloon and a different master suite arrangement.
- Hargrave’s Sassy. A repeat customer of Hargrave Custom Yachts commissioned this 101-foot (30.78-meter) raised-pilothouse motoryacht. Sassy has sporty styling by Black Design and a beam of 21’0” (6.4 meters).
- Princess S72 and 98 Motor Yacht. Though just shy of being a megayacht, the Princess S72 is the first of the new S Series (a.k.a. Sportsbridge Series) from her UK builder. Princess chose the Yacht & Brokerage Show for the global debut because it wants to attract a younger, edgier clientele. The styling and interior design of the Princess S72 therefore have more flair. (We’ll have an onboard report following the show.) As for the Princess 98 Motor Yacht, the model premiered overseas a few years ago, but this is the first time the megayacht is being shown stateside. She’ll be dressed to impress. At the Cannes Boat Show, the Princess 98 Motor Yacht featured interior design by Fendi, Princess’ sister company.
Of course, a variety of brokerage yachts from builders like Burger Boat Company, Christensen Shipyards, Trinity Yachts, Westport, and more will also be displayed. A second location, the Miami Beach Marina, has been added, too. It’s for power and sailing yachts measuring 154 feet (47 meters) and larger, due to the narrow width and shallow depth of the Indian Creek Waterway.
