Standout Superyachts Attending the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show 2020
As the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show pulls into port, we pick out some of the standout new and used superyachts in attendance this year...
Mangusta GranSport 33
The Overmarine Group is using FLIBS to premiere the first unit of its brand new Mangusta GranSport 33 superyacht series. Designed by Alberto Mancini in collaboration with Overmarine, the 33-metre yacht features sporty yet elegance lines matched with outstanding performance and efficiency. The interior design was penned by Mancini in collaboration with the American owner, resulting in a “stylish” décor. Powered by four Volvo IPS engines, the GranSport 33 has a top speed of 26 knots while the shallow 1.9 metre draft allows her entry into the most remote of anchorages.
Ocean Alexander will preview three new superyachts at FLIBS, including the 27 metre Explorer, known as the 27E (pictured), the Legend 32 and the Legend 36. The 27E is the first yacht from the builder’s new Explorer line, which features large deck spaces. These include a 225 square metre aft deck, which serves as an exterior lounge space for the guests and storage space for water toys and tenders.
Designed by Sam Sorgiovanni, the 53 metre motor yacht Mizu was built in aluminium by Australian yard Oceanfast to Germanischer Lloyds class and delivered in 2004 with a major refit in 2016. The refit saw her receive an extensive machinery overhaul, new teak decks and a full interior redesign.
Mizu is asking $9,900,000 with Fraser and Denison Yachting.
The 54.86 metre motor yacht Sovereign became the flagship of Newcastle Marine when she was launched in 2011, both as the largest ship the American yard had ever built and the first hull of the Newcastle 5500 series. Built in steel and aluminium she has been upgraded continuously since her launch under the supervision of Patton Marine Surveyors.
Azimut Magellano 25 Metri
The Magellano flagship combines the talents of Ken Freivokh and Vincenzo De Cotiis. Built for the US, hull number three is fully loaded with a king-size bed, Kenyon grill and bigger engines, generators and A/C capacity.
Built in aluminium by Dutch yard Heesen to a design by Gerhard Gilgenast, the 43.58 metre motor yacht Octopussy was commissioned by American entrepreneur John Staluppiwith the aim of breaking through the 50-knot barrier.
