Astondoa 110 Century
The yachting world is heading to Florida for the 2016 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, and we have picked out all the top superyachts you should make a date to see, listed in alphabetic order starting with the Astondoa 110 Century.
Twin 2,030hp MTU 16V 2000 M84 diesel engines propel this 33.5 metre semi-displacement hull to a top speed of 24 knots.Launched earlier this year to mark the Spanish yard Astondoa’s centenary, the new version of the 110 features an enclosed skylounge, a vast tender garage and contemporary interiors by Cristiano Gatto.
The first new model from Westport Yachts in seven years, 38 metre Black Gold is a real must-see. A contemporary interior meshes well with the spirit of the exterior styling for the first Westport to feature a superyacht beach club. Top speed on this tried and tested hull is more than 25 knots and the draught, at 1.75 metres, allows worry-free cruising from the Bahamas to the Caribbean or docking behind a private house.
Chasseur’s owner worked with Varo Interior Design to bring to life his contemporary vision, which strikes a balance between minimalism and modernism and takes advantage of the natural light streaming through large expanses of glass on this Christensen superyacht. The MCA-compliant 50 metre yacht will be available for charter along the Caribbean/Mediterranean circuit.
Delta 88 IPS
The Delta 88 IPS is also one of the few boats in this category to be built in carbon.Part of Swedish builder Delta Powerboats’ flagship line, this 25 metre motor yacht looks like no other. Rakish, modern lines by Lars Modin set it apart from the crowd. Her triple Volvo IPS1200 engines yield a top speed of around 37 knots but she has great fuel efficiency, too.
Eleonora III is the first hull of Columbus Yachts’ 40 metre Sport Hybrid series. This ShowBoats Design Award winner features hybrid propulsion that gives more than 20 knots with the mains engaged and eight knots in electric mode. A light, warm interior from Hot Lab Yacht and Design complements the open air feeling of the yacht.
