As the 2023 Palm Beach International Boat Show gets ready to return to the Sunshine State from 23 to 26 March, we take a look at this year's lineup of yachts for sale on display.
The 75-metre Feadship superyacht Arrow has entered the sales market for the first time and will be making her first boat show appearance as a superyacht for sale in Palm Beach. Delivered in 2020, the steel and aluminium yacht features the Dutch yard’s latest hybrid technology, promising low-impact efficiency. H2 Yacht Design penned her sporty exterior and masculine interior, which comprises a main saloon, aft and sky lounges, gym, and six cabins accommodating 12 guests. There is a VIP cabin and full-beam owner’s suite on the main deck and four guest cabins on the lower. A highlight is the beach club with two foldable balconies, a bar and spa and the sun deck with a hot tub. Decks are served by an elevator.

The 71.7-metre superyacht Kogo was delivered by French yard Alstom Leroux Naval in 2006 and features an impressive ice-classed steel hull and aluminium superstructure.

Never used 70-metre superyacht Alfa, built by Italian yard Benetti, was delivered in 2020 and has yet to be enjoyed.

She sports an abundance of al fresco relaxation spaces including an aft pool area and saloon, a full-beam beach club with fold-out balconies and a sundeck with a hot tub.

The 62.3-metre superyacht Flag, built in 2000 by Dutch yard Feadship, underwent an award-winning refit in 2012.

Despite only being delivered by Dutch yard Amels in 2022, the 60-metre motor yacht Come Together is ready for a new owner. She features an efficient steel hull and aluminium superstructure with a bronzed exterior by Monaco-based Espen Øino International. Her earthy interiors are by British studio Winch Design. Through six cabins she sleeps 12 guests who can enjoy an array of water sports from the swim platform before retiring to the beach club with its ice bath and sauna. Additional spaces include a sundeck for al fresco dining and movies under the stars, flood-lit indoor saloons, a sky lounge, and an owner’s suite with a fold-out balcony.
Built by Amels in 2019, the 55-metre motor yacht Papa is one example from the Dutch yard’s successful 180 Limited Editions Series. She’s most recently been used as a charter yacht, pleasing guests with sweeping exteriors by Tim Heywood and contemporary interiors by Laura Sessa. She accommodates 10 guests in five cabins including a full-beam owner’s suite with a fold-out balcony. A stand-out feature is her split-level sun deck, featuring a large raised hot tub, open-air Teppanyaki grill, al fresco cinema and helipad. The sea-level beach club is another. There’s also a light-filled saloon, formal dining room and bright sky lounge to enjoy at all times of day and night.
Builder: Palmer Johnson
Palmer Johnson’s 52.4-metre DB9 is special not only because it’s the first hull in the yard’s PJ 170 SportYacht range; she’s also the only model in the series with an open sun deck. Showcasing exterior and interior styling by Italian studio Nuvolari Lenard, the sleek yacht features eye-catching curves and a champagne finish, complemented by suitably elegant, modern interiors. Highlights of the yacht, which accommodates 12 guests in five cabins, include a full-beam master suite accessed by its own staircase, a trio of pool areas, and an al fresco cinema for movie nights under the stars.
The 52-metre motor yacht Ice Bear, delivered by Dutch shipyard Feadship in 1988, has been meticulously preserved for private use and never chartered. The classic yacht features exterior design by Frits De Voogt and interior styling by Paola D. Smith and Associates in Design. A group of 10 guests can be accommodated across five colourful cabins, including a standout full-beam master suite. Highlights among the spacious communal areas include a main deck dining room, unique sky lounge and observation deck. She's ideal for fishing enthusiasts and features two fixed fishing chairs on the aft deck.
Length: 50m Builder: Westport
The 50-metre motor yacht Hospitality was delivered by Westport in 2011 and has been well maintained since, with refits in 2016 and 2021. Most recently used as a successful charter yacht, she accommodates 16 guests across seven cabins and comes with a slew of charter-friendly facilities including numerous dining and relaxation spaces, a sundeck hot tub, a swim platform, a gym with Peloton bike, and bundles of tech and toys.

A fine example of American craftsmanship, the 50-metre Victoria Del Mar was built by Delta Marine in 2006 and refitted for long-term reliability with fresh interiors and new engines in 2018.

The 48-metre motor yacht Big Sky (formerly Australis) was delivered by the Australian yard Oceanfast in 2010 and recently completed a fresh refit in 2023. The contemporary interior styling of Alder & Tweed Design Co can be found in the full-beam saloon, dining rooms, sky lounge and cabins for 11 guests between the main deck master suite and three double VIP cabins and one twin on the lower deck. The exterior design was completed in-house, encompassing the packed toy store that includes Jet skis, kayaks, waverunners, kneeboards and fishing equipment.
Big Sky is asking $11,975,000 with Merle Wood & Associates.
Builder: Palmer Johnson
On sale for the first time, this 45.9-metre Palmer Johnson yacht is known for her speed and performance, although she also has plenty of style. Her sporty, racing car-inspired exterior was penned by Nuvolari Lenard and the Italian design firm was also in charge of the interiors. She sleeps 12 guests across five cabins and features an innovative layout that makes good use of space. A highlight is the open upper deck which benefits from a lounge area and whirlpool, and this leads to a raised observation point and flybridge above the pilothouse. She boasts impressive top speeds of 28 knots and a shallow draft for cruising between islands.
