Mid-sized debuts are the norm at show this year

Used to be that fanfare surrounding yacht debuts at FLIBS typically focused on the larger end of the scale. There are a few peppered within the show, but it seems for 2015, there’s a plethora of mid-sized yachts making first showings, from crewed to owner/operator.

Offerings include Sanlorenzo’s SL118 and SD126, Hargrave’s 101-foot M/Y Cutting Edge, Viking Yacht’s 80-foot

Convertible, the Monte Carlo MC6, the Astondoa 80 GLX, Numarine’s 70 Fly, Fairline Targa 53GT, and the Marlow 49E.

Several builders have multiple entries, including Hatteras with the 70 GT and 70 MY, Azimut with four yachts premiering (from 43 to 77 feet), Horizon Yachts E78 and E88, and Outer Reef 580 long-range motoryacht and 800 Cockpit motoryacht. Italian builder Otam makes its first appearance at a U.S. boat show with its 45 Open and 55 HT.

There is one superyacht debut to light up the docks, the 197-foot (60m) Feadship M/Y Rock.It. Constructed with a steel hull and aluminum superstructure, Rock.It launched last year but has not been presented to the public yet. She makes her international debut here at the show.

IAG Yacht’s debuts its newest offering, the 140-foot M/Y King Baby, a four-deck, 30-foot beam fiberglass yacht. Sporting an Evan K. Marshall interior as well as exterior styling, M/Y King Baby may very well get the most attention.

But for those who play by the numbers, look mid-range for the most new entries.
