Although Madsummer tops the FLIBS fleet in terms of size, it’s no echoing mausoleum. The cheerful decor in primary hues makes one feel right at home – a great trait for a charter yacht. Her size does show in the 12m swimming pool, a spa that opens to the sea, an Air Nautique tender and much more.

Heesen’s third 55m Steel class cruiser can go for 4,500nm at 13 knots. She also serves as the mothership for her owner’s Bayliss sportfisher fleet and spoils fishermen with a showpiece interior, 100m² sundeck and a fully equipped beach club gym.
This flagship of the Limited Editions fleet is the largest Amels ever to be shown in the US. The enormous yacht has six decks encompassing nine guest suites, crew quarters for 25, a swimming pool and a beach club opening to the sea on three sides.
Voith Linear Jet propulsion gives a super-shallow 1.37m draught, which is why this new brand – built at Van der Valk in the Netherlands – is calling the 90 the ultimate Exumas superyacht. Furthermore, the propulsion is paired with Vripack’s patented Slide Hull for smooth performance.

The “Revolution” continues at Ocean Alexander with the second model in the series being unveiled in Fort Lauderdale. It’s a thoroughly modern mutiny, too, with an open-plan main deck amid huge windows and a plumb bow. A piercer bulb enhances performance.

Who says a yacht’s port and starboard sides need to be mirror images of each other? Throwing this design tenet out of the window reclaims about 10m² of interior space. A starboard side deck runs from bow to stern, but to port the design is wide-body.

Capable of extreme cruising, this Marlow Voyager 100 is as overbuilt as they come. It includes Kevlar and carbon-fibre construction, custom climate control, waste heat recovery, continuous duty-rated Baudouin engines and all components specced to the highest standards.

Part of the Y Class of motor yachts, the Y85 is a contemporary take on the flybridge yacht, with a sweeping superstructure and planing hull capable of 33 knots. She accommodates eight guests in four cabins plus crew quarters for three aft.
The top deck is the crowning achievement of the 100 Century, part of Astondoa’s centennial collection. A single-level deck, from sunpads forward to spa pool aft, wraps around a protected flybridge, which shelters a large dining area and al fresco galley.

The way to look at this yacht is from the inside out. The beamy yet efficient hull holds an immense interior for its LOA – made even more voluminous in this Skyline model by the enclosed bridge. Designer Cor D Rover jokingly calls it the smallest 43-metre they’ve done.
