February 14 to 18 marks the annual Miami International Boat Show. Although not as large as other shows, it continues to attract large-yacht buyers. Primarily, brokerage buys are in the water at a variety of displays, although a handful of new builds are there, too. The 2024 Miami yacht show superyacht exhibits are spread among the Herald Plaza, Museum Park, and Yacht Haven Grande Miami exhibit areas. (Yacht Haven Grande is exclusively home to the SuperYacht Miami part of the show.) These are among the styles and sizes you can expect to see.
ALL INN, WESTPORT 130
The yacht All Inn is a Westport 130, one of the Pacific Northwest builder’s most successful semi-custom series to date. Originally from 2008, this yacht underwent a refit last year and has a strong charter track record. Among the staterooms for 10 people, you’ll find a main-deck master. She’s in Fraser Yachts’ display.
CUSTOM LINE 106
The Custom Line 106 series premiered in 2019. This particular hull is one of several new yachts from the Ferretti Group at the 2024 Miami yacht show. The Group’s partner, Allied Marine, will have her on display. Francesco Paszkowski Design lends the Custom Line 106 sporty lines and a contemporary décor amid 2,368 square feet (220 square meters) of interior space.
FERRETTI YACHTS 860
Like the Custom Line 106, this is a new Ferretti Group project, a flying-bridge yacht, on display with Allied Marine. The Ferretti Yachts 860 is available with your choice of two décor packages, from the Italian studio Ideaeitalia. Firstly, deep, rich tones characterize the Classic package. Light, cool colors, meanwhile, characterize the Contemporary package.
CL YACHTS CLX96
CL Yachts calls it CLX series a Sea Activity Vessel series, since she’s a long-range cruiser. She’s additionally more shippy-looking, with aft-raked wheelhouse windows. But, she’s still superyacht chic inside, with Jozeph Forakis Design collaborating with clients to tailor the ambience. A party of eight can stay aboard.
A classic at the 2024 Miami yacht show, Entourage dates to 1994. Don’t let that dissuade you, though. Her owners spent about $3 million to make her look and feel new, including installing new Caterpillar engines. This 125-footer (38-meter) was a fully custom delivery from the Norweigian brand Norship (no longer around) and Mulder Design. Entourage is on display with Denison Yachting.
GRATEFUL, BENETTI OASIS 34M
Although she launched early last year, this Benetti Oasis 34M megayacht is just now making her public debut. She’s for sale in Fraser Yachts’ display, too. The 112-footer (34-meter) has accommodations for 10, although the feature everyone will be talking about is the pool. It’s specifically an infinity pool, integrated into the edge of the aft deck.
INCENTIVIZED, AB 80
Being an AB Yachts megayacht, Incentivized looks as fast as she is capable of going. Just how fast is that? Try a reported top speed of 57 knots. Cruising speed, meanwhile, is still fast, 45 knots. You can still go island hopping or cover hundreds of miles of coastline at that cruising speed as well. Incentivized is a central listing with Burgess.
MISS LIZA, SANLORENZO SL86
The Sanlorenzo SL86 is a sporty-looking flying-bridge motoryacht series. Miss Liza has the performance to match, a top speed of 32 knots. All four staterooms are below decks, preserving the main deck for socializing and dining. See her with OneWater Yacht Group.
RIVA 82 DIVA
If upwards of 800 square feet of alfresco space sounds good to you, the Riva 82 Diva will tick the box. Exhibited with Allied Marine, this is a brand-new hull. In fact, the show marks her American debut. In typical Riva fashion, rich wood and stainless steel detailing flow throughout the interior.
SAPPHIRE, TRINITY YACHTS
A 2009 delivery, Sapphire is one of several 164-footers (50-meters) from Trinity Yachts. Although the builder is no longer in business, its deliveries remain strong sellers. A bridge-deck owners’ suite—facing aft, too—and a Bahamas-friendly draft are among her notable features. See her in the display of Superyacht Sales and Charter.
SEACLUSION, SUNREEF 80
Here’s one of the few sailing yachts at the 2024 Miami yacht show. She’s further a catamaran, which is what Sunreef Yachts exclusively builds. Sunreef Yachts itself has her in its exhibit. Her 38-foot (11.5-meter) beam makes leisure spaces from the aft deck straight through the open-plan saloon and dining area rival those of much bigger boats.
SUNSEEKER 100 YACHT
The 2024 Miami yacht show is the first American show for the Sunseeker 100 Yacht. She’s the flagship of the UK builder’s Yacht range. Clever spatial arrangements mean the flying bridge and foredeck lounging area are on the same level. OneWater Yacht Group, Sunseeker’s U.S. representative, has her on display.
By far, the biggest yacht at the show is Victorious, a 279-footer (85-meter). Turkey-based AKYacht completed the explorer in 2021, 14 years after a Chilean shipyard had started construction. For sale, yet also offering a fractional-ownership program, Victorious has several impressive areas, including a wine and cigar room. The room has a fireplace, too. The superyacht is at Yacht Haven Grande marina with Barnes Yachting. Outright sale asking price is €120 million.
Admission to the show is exclusively via online purchase of digital tickets. No onsite box office will be available. SuperYacht Miami requires a separate ticket purchase, but includes water-taxi transport to Yacht Haven Grande Miami, where the larger superyachts will dock.
