When it comes to yacht shopping in the United States (and easily being able to go aboard some of the world’s largest and most recognizable yachts that are for sale and/or available for charter), the Palm Beach International Boat Show that’s taking place along Flagler Drive in downtown West Palm Beach, directly across the Intracoastal Waterway from Palm Beach Island will be the place to be this weekend.
Especially since the demand (for boats ranging from the smallest stand-up-paddleboard to the largest superyacht) continues to surge, the $1.2 billion worth of yachts and accessories that will be on display in South Florida will be sure to draw a crowd.
So, if you are one of the lucky ones who will be heading to the Palm Beach International Boat Show this weekend, here’s a preview of some of the largest yachts that will be on display. See you there!
EIV (160 Feet)
EIV was launched in Italy in the late summer of 2020. She features the interior and exterior styling talents of Team for Design-led by Enrico Gobbi. Naval architecture from Arrabito Naval Architects. And EIV was constructed entirely from aluminum at the Rossinavi shipyard in Italy.
The accommodation is designed for up to eight guests in four en-suite cabins, with a professional crew of nine on-hand to provide impeccable service.
SHE’S A 10 (164 Feet)
SHE’S A 10, was built by Oceanfast, launched in 1989, and was designed by the legendary Jon Bannenberg and Phil Curran. However, she’s been meticulously maintained and timeless and elegant interior is perfectly set up for entertainment and relaxing. Her accommodations include an on-deck master with 4 additional guest staterooms below, sleeping 12 in 5 staterooms.
ROCK.IT was built by the Dutch shipyard Feadship in 2014 and features an interior and exterior design vision by Sinot Exclusive Yacht Design. Her interiors feature high gloss wood paneling on bulkheads and ceilings, contrasted with cream leathers, backlit white onyx, portoro and other marbles. The wood in the main saloon and cabins is darker and the sky lounge has a lighter theme and teak decking.
11.11 (207 Feet)
Motor yacht 11.11 was built by Benetti in 2015 and then went on to win a World Superyacht Award in 2016 (Displacement Motor Yachts 500-1,299GT). And I’m not surprised. The exterior design and naval architecture by Azimut features a knife sharp plumb bow giving her not only a distinctive profile.
Bold (278 Feet)
BOLD proves that not all luxurious and ecofriendly superyachts need look the same. In fact, this 278-foot long superyacht was built by Silveryachts in Australia and looks more like a full-on naval warship to me. But it’s only designed for over-the-top fun and luxury and…um…getting attention wherever she goes. She’ll definitely be drawing a crowd in S. Florida this weekend.
