New Boat Debuts Slated for FLIBS

1 FLIBS mangusta

The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, which runs Oct. 28-Nov. 1, will debut more than 20 new launches, from yachts to center consoles and dayboats.

Worth Yachts will feature the 180-foot superyacht Sovereign, by Newcastle Shipyards, and Denison Yachting will display the 118-foot Arthur’s Way, from Millennium Super Yachts.

The Mangusta GranSport 33 will make her U.S. debut; the 109-foot fast displacement yacht seeks to combine technical features such as speed, greater range and limited consumption with performance and high efficiency.

2 FLIBS Azimut

Azimut Yachts will present its Magellano 25 Metri, a yacht created in partnership with Vincenzo De Cotiis, who created the interiors, and Ken Freivokh, who drew its exterior. The boat makes significant use of carbon fiber and includes an active, air-sanitizing system based on a NASA patent.

3 FLIBS Intrepid

Intrepid Yachts will show its new 409 Valor, a sleek boat that features luxury cruiser-like amenities — including a private head and shower stall, separate master berth with queen bed and hull side windows to a forward cabin section that converts to a large double berth.

Cruisers Yachts will unveil its 42 GLS, a series that launched in June last year with the 38 GLS. The boat is designed to be a hybrid designed to appeal to those who enjoy sport or day boating.

World premieres including new vessels from Viking, Prestige, Astondoa, Solace Boats and more.
