Even though many of the largest and most prolific superyacht shipyards are located in Europe, several of this year’s hottest and largest superyachts are owned by Americans.
The 2019 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show gave us a look at some of these beautiful vessels and their on-board amenities.
Here are some of the hottest and newest yachts that were at the Ford Lauderdale International Boat Show this year:
The largest yacht in the show is the 311-foot Madsummer. She boasts ten cabins, a 39-foot swimming pool, a huge spa, and has extensive diving facilities. Built earlier this year, she will be spending the summer in the Mediterranean and the winter here in the Caribbean.
2. Hargrave Custom Yachts
The brand-new 186-foot-long vessel BABA's was built in earlier this year in Turkey. Her wide beam allows for six staterooms, accommodating up to 12 guests. Her max speed is 16.0 kn.
Hessen's new vessel, Vida, is 180-feet-long and has five beautiful staterooms. She has more than 2,500 square-feet of interior space and 1,000 square-feet of outdoor space. Vida offers a maximum speed of 16 knots and frugal fuel consumption that gives a remarkable range of 4,500nm at 13 knots.
4. Damen Yacht Support
Joy Rider, Damen Yacht Support's newest vessel, was built in the Netherlands and is 150 feet-long. Up to six guests and a crew of seven can be accommodated for on board and make use of the large main-deck lounge and touch-and-go helipad.
