With one week to go before the Miami International Boat Show, you’re likely lining up yachts to visit. One to consider putting on your list is the yacht Incentivized, whose name pretty much says it all. Her racy profile and performance, along with her sophisticated interior style, should stir emotions in potential buyers.
An AB 80 model from AB Yachts, Incentivized saw delivery just last year. She’s hull number nine in the series, in fact. The Italian builder has staked a reputation on building megayachts that not only look fast, but also are fast. This project doesn’t disappoint, promising a top speed of 57 knots. Her cruising speed, meanwhile, is equally capable of making quick work of heading from South Florida to the Florida Keys or the Bahamas. It’s reportedly 45 knots, pledging a range of 450 nautical miles. That makes it possible to depart the continental U.S. shores late morning for lunch in the islands, then spending the day swimming and playing on watertoys.
If you typically head back to the mainland for your dinners, the yacht Incentivized might convince you to enjoy your anchorage for a while longer. Her amenities can take you from day to night smoothly. The open-plan main deck, for example, includes a fully open galley, where your crew can set up a buffet lunch for the main dining area. Or, use the foredeck U-shape seating area and table to enjoy dining together. Sun worshippers can remain forward, where there’s a big sunpad. They have other options, of course, including the flying bridge and main aft deck. Guests wanting to enjoy a little action, meanwhile, can ask the crew to launch PWCs from the garage. As night falls, underwater lighting adds an air of sophistication to cocktail hour.
Longer cruises with six family and friends are possible, too. All staterooms are below decks, with a full-beam VIP and two twins for them. You get an aft, full-beam suite that includes an office.
Although the Miami show doesn’t have nearly as many megayachts as FLIBS or the Palm Beach show, it’s still significant for Burgess. “Given the tremendous wealth migration to the city, we feel it holds an ever-important place on the international yacht-show schedule,” says Jonathan Becket, its chief executive. Additionally, and conveniently, the company has an office in Miami’s financial district for meeting with clients interested in charter or buying.
Contact Burgess to schedule your onboard visit during the Miami show, from February 14 to 18. The yacht’s asking price: $11 million.
