By HMY Contributor   October 3, 2016

The 57th Annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show will return November 3rd through the 7th and with it a plethora of new yachts making their premier. HMY Yacht Sales will once again have the largest display at the boat show with premium new yacht brands Viking, Princess, and Cruisers Yachts as well as over 40 brokerage yachts as well on D-Dock and at the Las Olas display. Visit to see available yachts at the show or to make an appointment with one of our HMY Sales Professionals.


New Boats Premiering from Viking Yachts

Back in February, Viking Yachts unveiled the new Viking 48 Convertible which immediately sold several boats. At the time, Viking President Patrick Healey announced to the Viking enthusiasts at the show that the 48 Sport Tower and 48 Open versions would be ready for the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show. That time is upon us and HMY is thrilled about being able to bring our customers three different options in the 48. Also making its debut is the new Viking 72 Convertible and 72 Enclosed Bridge. Designed to follow the success of the Viking 70 Convertible, the 72 Convertible is almost two feet longer, has 5 more inches of beam, and more freeboard forward and aft. Accommodations aboard the 72C resemble the four-stateroom, five-head layout of the 70 Convertible, including private access for the crew through the engine room.

New Boats Premiering From Princess Yachts

Princess Yachts will debut three new models at this year's Fort Lauderdale Boat Show. The largest of the three is the new 75 Motor Yacht which Princess unveiled in a stunning video back in May that you can see here. The flybridge on the new 75MY is amazing and provides an incredible amount of room for entertaining. The efficient, agile cruising experienced aboard the 75 Motor Yacht will leave you inspired to take more time for the water. In addition to the 75MY, the latest addition to the V-Class range is the dynamic new V58, which comes in two versions - an Open or Deck Saloon. The open model with a full-length cockpit and sunroof is perfect for cruising the Bahamas, while the flexible enclosed deck model can be climate controlled or opened to the elements via triple sliding aft doors and a retractable sunroof.

The Princess Yachts 49 Flybridge is the final new premier, but could be the most popular for our Florida climate. With speeds up to 35 knots, the new Princess 49 is a sporty cruising yacht that combines the latest IPS pod drive system with a new modified deep-V hull for excellent handling. The flybridge boasts a twin helm seat, convertible L-Shaped sofa and a lot of extra aft seating.

New Boats Premiering From Cruisers Yachts

At last year's Fort Lauderdale Boat Show, Cruisers Yachts premiered two new models that would go on to be some of the most popular boats on the market for the next year - the 60 Cantius and the 54 Cantius. At the 2016 boat show, Cruisers plans to unveil the flybridge versions of both the 60 and 54 Cantius. Recently, HMY Yachts customers got a sneak peak at the new 60 Flybridge during the Cruisers Yachts dealer meeting which can be seen here. The new 60 Flybridge offers unprecedented views and exceptional piloting from the bridge which also sports a spacious helm and a complete wetbar for entertaining. Make an appointment today with an HMY Yachts Sales Professional to see the new 60 and 54 Flybridge before the crowds take over!
