The coolest superyachts attending the Palm Beach International Boat Show 2024

20 March 2024 • Written by Dea Jusufi

Owners, industry experts and yachting enthusiasts are preparing to set sail for this year's Palm Beach International Boat Show. Running from 21 to 24 March (and with a staggering 800 boats scheduled to attend), BOAT takes a closer look at the coolest of the lot...

Nero – 90.1m

Builder: Corsair Yachts
Year: 2007
Designer: Neil Taylor, Imt Marine Consultants, Luxury Projects

After failing to find a suitable renovation project, British entrepreneur Neil Taylor commissioned Nero and modelled her after JP Morgan's 1930s steam yacht Corsair IV. She was delivered just in time for her scheduled debut at the Antigua Charter Show, cutting it so tight that the crew were sewing cushion covers while crossing. Leisure highlights include an upper deck gym, beauty saloon-come-massage room and cosy interiors – including a springy handmade bouclé carpet.

Nero will be exhibited by Burgess.

Victorious – 85m

Builder: AKYACHT
Year: 2021
Designer: Michael Leach Design, Marco Yachts, H2 Yacht Design

A superyacht more than 14 years in the making, Victorious is an explorer yacht finished to a luxury standard – a project that Leach described as "really refreshing". Noteworthy features include a touch-and-go helipad, an observation lounge with a baby grand piano, a wood-burning marble fireplace, wine cellar and humidor for enjoying a cigar on the terrace. Her range is an impressive 13,000 nautical miles, perfect for long exploration voyages.

Victorious will be on display at Rybovich.

Talisman C – 70.5m

Builder: Proteksan Turquoise
Year: 2011
Designer: H2 Yacht Design, Hydro Tec

Talisman C's original owner was looking to upgrade from a 54.2-metre to one that could carry more tenders and toys. The result? A full-width aft garage that can accommodate a 7.7-metre Ski Nautique Super Air for powered sports, a seven-metre Novurania Chase 23 tender and a Narwhal rescue tender. A split-level master suite sits forward on the main deck and is described by the broker as having a "boudoir décor", with voile curtains around the king-sized bed and crystal chandeliers as bedside reading lights. She was a finalist at the World Superyacht Awards.

Talisman C will be exhibited by Burgess.

Triumph – 65.4m

Builder: Benetti
Year: 2021
Designer: Giorgio M. Cassetta, Pierluigi Ausonio, Green & Mingarelli Design

With six decks and a 11.2-metre beam, Triumph has six "opulent" cabins and plenty of space leftover for leisure. The superyacht comes equipped with a sauna, a gym, a massage room and a Jacuzzi. Her 70-square-metre beach club comes with a drop down platform, while a touch-and-go helipad is located on the bow. Interiors are contemporary and "cosmopolitan", incorporating materials such as Crema Marfil marble, fur and glass by Lalique. Meanwhile, a "highly efficient hull" allows for long-distance silent cruising.

Seanna – 64.5m

Builder: Benetti
Year: 2011
Designers: Stefano Natucci, Redman Whiteley Dixon, Susan Young

Another World Superyacht Awards finalist, Seanna's design combines several Benetti brand motifs including covered companionways and sculpted mullions. A grand marble lobby is found at the heart of the yacht and her interior is finished in fine Italian leathers, rich walnut woodwork and nickel inlays. The main saloon converts to a cinema and there is a separate television lounge adjacent to the formal dining room, while the main deck also boasts a massage room for two and a library with an electric fireplace.

Seanna will be exhibited by Burgess.

Come Together – 60m

Builder: Amels
Year: 2022
Designers: Espen Oeino International, Damen Yachting, Winch Design

The first unit in the Amels 60 series (and the only Amels 60 on the market), Come Together was commissioned by a serial superyacht owner who, unsurprisingly, happens to be a fan of The Beatles. Accommodation is for up to 12 guests and includes a vast owner's suite with folding balcony, office and lounge area. Her crowning glory is a 27-metre sundeck complete with a raised sun lounging space, a Jacuzzi, a bar and an extendable dining table protected from the elements. As the sun sets, the space can be transformed into an open-air cinema or a party area with DJ decks.

Come Together will be exhibited by Edmiston.

Next Chapter – 55m

Builder: Benetti
Year: 2003
Designers: Stefano Natucci

The star yacht in season six of Below Deck Mediterranean, Next Chapter (then Lady Michelle) can accommodate up to 13 guests. A split-level owner's suite with an observation lounge and study are among the highlights of this yacht, as is the large sundeck with a spa pool and air-conditioned gymnasium. The al fresco offerings continue with a spacious beach club, variety of water toys (including a 13.7-metre Yamaha) and beach barbecue. She benefitted from a refit in 2023.

Next Chapter will be exhibited by IYC.

Ice Bear – 52m

Builder: Feadship
Year: 1988
Designers: Frits De Voogt, Paola D. Smith, Associates In Design

Vintage Feadship Ice Bear has only been privately used since her delivery. Five cabins accommodate a party of ten, with a full-beam master suite on the main deck and four more spacious and "colourful themed" cabins – two twins and two doubles – on the lower deck. Guests have plenty of places to congregate or find solitude, from the main deck dining room to a unique sky lounge and observation deck. On the aft deck are two fixed fishing chairs complemented by a range of seating.

Ice Bear will be exhibited by Burgess.

Nita K II – 52m

Builder: Amels
Year: 2004
Designers: Terence Disdale, Alberto Pinto

Nita K II benefits from expansive social areas both inside and out, with three outdoor levels that feature several seating, dining and lounging options. Accommodation is for up to 12 guests, including a full-beam owner's cabin with his and hers bathrooms, walk-in wardrobe and large office that can be closed off from the bedroom. Her interiors incorporate eight varieties of wood alongside other "fine materials".

Nita K II will be exhibited by Merle Wood & Associates.

Ancora – 47m

Builder: Mengi-Yay
Year: 2023
Designers: VYD Studio, Ginton Naval Architects, Robert Trown & Associates

Making her debut at Palm Beach, Ancora is "specially optimised for charter" according to her broker. The superyacht features a main deck master cabin with private balcony and four additional cabins on the lower deck – including two double and two convertibles for extra flexibility. Standout features include her unfolding side balconies, while the sundeck Jacuzzi and 16.5-metre Maori chase tender are other amenities worthy of note.

Ancora will be exhibited by Fraser.

Club M – 40m

Builder: Baglietto
Year: 2020
Designers: Horacio Bozzo Design, Salvagni Architetti

Club M is a multi-award winner, having picked up a World Superyacht Award and Design & Innovation Awards in 2021. She was designed for an owner with 30 years of boating experience who spent three years on the design process, visiting and sounding out designers and yards in Europe. He also drew on his own knowledge gained in developments in the real estate industry. Accommodation is for up to 12 guests in five cabins, with further quarters for six crew.

Club M will be exhibited by Christie Yachts.
