10 outstanding superyachts attending the FLIBS 2017
The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS) commences on the 1st of November, with the 58th edition presenting some of the largest and most technically accomplished superyachts ever built. From classic refits to new launches that have already started earning their luxury charter reputations during the Mediterranean yachting season, these are ten superyachts to spot during the event.
One of the largest superyachts on display at FLIBS, 78m/257ft motor yacht TV is an impressive sight with exceptional spa facilities to match. Built by Lurssen, Espen Oeino is responsible for her engineering and exterior styling while Alberto Pinto completed her opulent interiors.
Guests have a choice of heart-stopping fun with a tender capable of 70 knots and 20m water slide. Scuba diving equipment is among the latest water toys available, and her status as a PADI Certified Dive Centre gives guests of all ages the chance to earn their PADI diving license among some of the world’s most awe-inspiring locations.
You can charter TV this winter from EUR 850,000 per week plus expenses.

Launched in early July, M/Y CLORINDA was the fourth Sport 120 superyacht delivered by ISA Yachts and was awarded the Millennium Yacht Design Award (MYDA). The first superyacht completed at the shipyard’s recently acquired Ancona yard, CLORINDA is meaning milestone in the company’s international profile.
The modern interiors use a contemporary color scheme of muted browns and off-white, while the ceiling lighting runs in lines against glossy textures for efficient light usage with an understated, minimalist appearance. The accommodation sleeps up to 10 guests across 5 cabins with a split-level Owner’s suite. Three MTU 16V 2000 M96 diesel engines allow her to cruise at 27 knots and reach a top speed of 33 knots.
Shortly after her launch, 38m/125ft luxury yacht SKYLER entered the charter market and was an instant success over the Mediterranean yachting season. Featuring the exterior styling of Stefano Righini and interiors from British designers RWD, the crisp, contemporary living spaces flow into one another and place function and efficiency as essential environment characteristics.
As well as custom furnishings across every level, the foredeck contains a spa pool, the sky lounge converts into a cinema, and the forward master suite has two side-balconies, making superyacht SKYLER another successful feature-filled superyacht from Benetti.
More than beauty, the lower deck is home to a spacious beach club with access to an extended swim platform, a gym, and a dive center. The sundeck is equally as enticing, and guests can soak in the spacious spa pool together while taking in uninterrupted views of each destination.
Superyacht VERTIGE from Tankoa Yachts was another highly anticipated build, featuring the styling of renowned designers Francesco Paszkowski and Margherita Casprini, who worked on her exterior and interior respectively. She had a busy season in the Mediterranean following her entry into the charter market due to her desirable features which include an upper deck alfresco cinema that seats up to 20, a forward solarium and an additional open-air saloon.
Feadship motor yacht VANISH was created following a concept by Eidsgaard Design and launched in 2016. At 66m/217ft, there is plenty of space aboard superyacht VANISH for up to 12 guests to unwind, and the 17 crewmen to ensure that everyone on board is well taken care of.
