31st Edition of Miami Yacht Show
The Most Glamorous Exhibition in the United States
In its 31st edition, the most glamorous exhibition in the United States, was held this year for the first time in a new exclusive location, at the One Herald Plaza. Ferretti Group in absolute preview for the American market, presented Riva 66 Ribelle, the new sport-fly that commanded the Cannes Yachting Festival and Boot Düsseldorf 2019, and Riva 100 Corsaro, the first model of the Riva flybridge range, together with Riva 110 Dolcevita and Riva 90 Argo. Successor to many legendary Riva yachts, 100’ Corsaro is the perfect blend of comfort, performance, style and safety. Its majestic dimensions are arranged harmoniously with the athleticism of the design, characterized by a sharp profile, metallic colors in dark tones and large glass surfaces. 66 Ribelle, the flagship of the Sarnico shipyard, continues the evolutionary path that began with 56’ Rivale. Conceived as an entry level model in Riva’s sportfly range, it aims to become the new benchmark in its market segment.
The Miami show was for sure a unique opportunity for Baglietto to show to the Americas’ market the savoir vivre and lifestyle by Baglietto. The historical Italian brand presented its latest construction as an absolute premiere for the American market: the 48m T-Line MY Silver Fox which was sold the first day of the Cannes Yachting Festival in September. Francesco Paszkowski Design designed the sleek exteriors. The Baglietto Interior Design, combining modernity and luxury, planned the layout of the interiors. The vessel – with a traditional bulbous bow – boasts over 350sqm of luxurious interior space, with room for many new features. Also at Miami Show Azimut Yachts introduced some of its latest innovations for the next nautical season. In addition to the Grande S10 and Magellano 25 Meter RPH, the Company presented the characters of the upcoming models; the 76 Fly, the Verve 47, and the Atlantis 45. The Atlantis 45 is the successor of the Atlantis 43, a model of enormous success with a proven sales record that surpassed every expectation, selling over 140 units in four years.
Characterized by a user-friendly VOLVO IPS propulsion system, it carries on the stylistic accents introduced by its older sister, the Atlantis 51. The Azimut 76 Fly is a significant project which strikes a perfect balance between a sophisticated design and a focus on delivering optimised interior spaces. The first vessel of the Fly Collection distinguishes itself from other yachts with its unique layout, offering an allocation of spaces typically seen in much larger vessels. The Verve 47 was envisioned specifically for the American market, arriving on the scene as an emblem of the Italian Weekender: a fast and high-performance yacht, it is a vessel that will spark joy in any handler. Its second cabin lends itself well to longer stays on board, allowing guests to spread out in relaxing surroundings. As Filippetti Yacht celebrates its 10th Anniversary, it was only fitting that the global debut of the Filippetti Sport Yacht 55 was at the Yachts Miami Boat Show. Designed in collaboration with Davide Cipriani of the Centro Stile design, the S55 is a boat that declares both elegance and performance can be accomplished in one boat.
