VIDEO: MarineMax showcases new-boat debuts

So you missed the 55th annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show?

It’s a bummer when you don’t get to see all the new boats coming out, whether it’s because you were tied up at the office or home enjoying a new baby, so MarineMax put together a video to give people a snapshot of what they missed — or at least a glimpse of the product debuts from brands that the country’s largest recreational boat retailer carries.

MarineMax leisure lifestyle manager Abbey Heimensen highlights some of the new boats.

The video also includes interviews with key folks such as Federico Ferrante, president of Azimut Benetti USA; Sea Ray product development and engineering vice president Ron Berman; William Rogers of Boston Whaler; Richard Allendar, director of Ocean Alexander’s U.S. operations; and Allen Lang, national sales manager for Scout Boats.

Azimut Benetti showcased the Azimut Atlantis 50 and Magellano 53.

Sea Ray delivered a host of products at the show: the L590 Fly, the 19SPX (with outboard and sterndrive power), the 270 and 290 Sundeck and the 470 Sundancer.

Boston Whaler’s 420 Outrage, the largest in Whaler history, is highlighted specifically in the video, as well as the new Scarab 165, a jetboat by parent company Rec Boat Holdings.

Viewers get to see Scout’s 255 LXF, a forward-seating center console with a Nu-V3 fuel-saving design, as well as some mockups of the 420 LXF, which is set to debut in Miami.

The Hatteras Express Series was launched at FLIBS, and MarineMax highlights the 45 EX Fishing model. The Hatteras GT70 was also launched at the show.
