2018 Hanse 388
The brand new 388 has huge shoes to fill, taking the place of the European Yacht of Year winning 385. Underpinned by the same hull design, the new model makes improvements through a slightly taller rig and increased stability from a new keel design.
Adding hull windows and additional light sources means the newly designed interior is a lovely light and bright space to be when spending time onboard. A brand new deck design increases cockpit space, storage and head turning looks.
As with all Hanse models the engineering and construction techniques are unsurpassed, offering you a superbly strong, safe cruising yacht.
2018 Viking 68 Convertible
Viking continues its dominance of the sportfishing yacht industry with the introduction of the Viking 68, a four-stateroom blue-water convertible with unmatched performance, bulletproof construction, luxury interior accommodations and advanced propulsion and boat-control technologies.
“This boat is going to be a big hit,” says Viking Design Manager David Wilson. “We were able to bring some of the attributes of our larger models to the 68 while maintaining the efficiencies of a smaller sportfishing boat.”
The 68 C is designed and engineered to function equally as well as a tournament-ready offshore runner and a cruising yacht with all the conveniences and technology that you’ve come to expect from Viking.
The optional Seakeeper gyro stabilizer heightens the level of comfort during both fishing and cruising activities. Anglers do battle in a 176-square foot cockpit, while guests can watch from an air-conditioned observation mezzanine.
Running on Viking’s proven hull shape with a 12.1-degree transom deadrise, this beautiful battlewagon delivers a soft ride in rough seas, with a 35-knot cruising speed and a top end approaching 40-plus knots. An aggressively raked stem, gently sloping sheer, swept-back black-masked windshield and flying bridge brow present a powerful yet elegant picture.
2018 Bavaria E40
The “E” in the BAVARIA E40 stands above all for efficiency. Efficiency on the one hand with regard to the revolutionary spatial concept – everything is extra-big and provides extra space. But it also refers to the drive, where the focus is less on performance and more on economy and the environment, and on being in harmony with nature. That is why the BAVARIA E40 is also available with a hybrid drive.
Regency 220 LE3
Sleek style, nimble performance and plush lounges—everything the 220 LE3 offers you, and everything you need for countless memorable outings on the water.
So, relax in comfort with the sun on your face and the sound of nature playing in your ears. Host your friends and family for an evening of cold drinks and fun conversation. And experience the beauty of the outdoors from the best seats on the water.
2018 Beneteau Oceanis 51.1
2018 Bavaria Nautitech 40 Open
In the BAVARIA NAUTITECH 40 OPEN, the NAUTITECH design team and star designer Marc Lombard have succeeded in redefining the living space of a cruising catamaran. Whereas in the past the deck saloon and cockpit lounge have tended to be separate worlds, here they have been combined – resulting in a completely new feeling of space.
Based on the experience that daily life takes place in the cockpit, on a 40-foot vessel, either the cockpit lounge or saloon generally suffer from size limitations, but here, the two areas have simply been combined. This in turn has only been made possible with the help of a sophisticated tarpaulin system. As a result, dinners and parties will no longer be disturbed by wind or weather.
2018 Yamaha EX
For 2018, the fun and affordable Yamaha EX Series returns to the Rec Lite category with a bold new look that jumps off the sales floor.
Included in the EX Series are the EX, EX Sport, and EX Deluxe. These models are shorter in length, lighter in weight, and more affordable than any three-person WaveRunner that Yamaha has offered in the past. However, the EX Series is manufactured with the same durable materials and high level of craftsmanship that Yamaha is renowned for. The result is a fun, exciting Rec Lite WaveRunner that families can enjoy for years.
2018 Sea-Doo SPARK TRIXX
2018 VanDutch 75T
The 2018 VanDutch 75T is extraordinary in presence, capability and style. The most anticipated VanDutch model to ever hit the water has arrived, touting gigantic sun beds, tender & toy housing, refrigerated deck tables, a full-service cockpit wet bar, and a sleek T-Top to cover it all. And thats just the outside.
2018 Hinckley Dasher
The future is here. Since 1928, Hinckley has been leading the way in the design of beautiful, highly innovative and timeless yachts. In the spirit of our legacy of innovation, we are excited to announce Dasher, the world’s first fully electric luxury yacht. Reservations now being accepted for delivery in Summer 2018.
Designed from the ground up for fully electric propulsion, Dasher achieves a new standard of excellence with modern styling paired with super lightweight construction. From her carbon-epoxy composite hull, to her handpainted, lightweight Artisanal Teak, every ounce of weight has been shaved and every curve sculpted.
Arriving not with a roar, but with our silent Whisper Drive propulsion system powered by dual BMW i3 lithium ion batteries, the shape of the future is also the sound of silence. The result is a serenity not easily found. Time to reconnect with friends and family, sharing a conversation and enjoying quiet, quality time together. With zero emissions and zero time lost traveling to the pump and back, it’s not what Hinckley has added to Dasher but what Hinckley has removed that you’ll love most.
2018 Arcadia A100
The A100 is built from GRP with aluminium balconies on the main deck. Like all ARCADIA yachts, this model sports a semi-planing hull with a LOA of 31.06 metres. Its 29.19-metre hull length and generous 7.75-metre beam are unusual for a yacht of these dimensions.
The A100 has a GT of slightly over 200 tonnes, guaranteeing a unique amount of onboard space in addition to volumes and solutions normally only found on much larger yachts. These include over 50 square metres of openable glazing along its sides to allow owner and guests to enjoy the sea breeze. This very direct relationship with nature and a green focus are the new A100’s salient characteristics, in fact.
2018 Aeroboat S6
At 65ft, the Aeroboat S6 combines elegant outdoor living, easy access to the water’s edge, and the thrill of high-performance cruising in a yacht underpinned by exemplary design, naval architecture and engineering. With a collection of distinctive features combined with the performance and control expected of a vessel powered by Rolls-Royce, the S6 sits in a class of its own.
2017 Sea Ray L650
Luxury is more than the sum of above-average parts coming together as a whole. Luxury is an elevated experience so individually tailored it changes you, it inspires you, and there is nothing more inspirational than the Sea Ray L-Class. The L650 is style and substance informing each other for the greater good of both. It is luxury built to move you while delivering the heritage and excellence that is Sea Ray in a new class of unparalleled experiences.
2017 Riviera 575 SUV
Nothing compares with the reassurance of owning a Riviera. Practically speaking. Emotionally too. Picture yourself with the tide rising fast at work.
No worries. Now cast a glance at the framed desk of your beloved motor yacht and picture yourself casting off. Onboard your resplendent new Riviera SUV, you are leaving every trivial or overstated matter in your wake. Fresh clean air fills your lungs. Spirits lift. Relationships thrive.

The Riviera SUV Collection, the 445 SUV, 525 SUV and 575 SUV, are a perfect meld of the offshore blue water performance and wide open cockpit of the classic Riviera Flybridge collection, and the famous single level, alfresco entertaining style of the award winning Riviera Sport Yachts.
In other words, you are at the helm of two fabulous motor yachts in one…with twice as many excuses to turn your life into one thrilling new adventure after another. Enjoy! Enjoy!
2017 Formula 430 Super Sport Crossover
Some boats are built to serve as a luxe cruising/party platforms, and some are built for speed, but it’s rare for these two worlds to overlap. Formula has managed to do just that with its aptly-named 430 Super Sport Crossover that combines spacious below-deck compartments, a full galley below with an “outdoor kitchen” on the weather deck complete with a 240V electric grill and plenty of lounging areas with the performance that only 1200 horsepower and a planing hull can provide. Crossover, indeed! As always, the devil is in the details and this boat has plenty of them, so let’s dig in and see what else Formula Boats has on tap for us.

Bavaria Yachtbau has been building quality cruisers since Winifried Herrman and Josef Meltl launched the company back in 1978. In January of 2012, Bavaria showed us what it has learned over the last 30-plus years of building cruisers and taking customer feedback with the release of the Vision 46. The Vision line is meant to represent the wish lists of cruisers the world over, and help bring mega-yacht features to the masses who don’t have millions to spend on (or shelter in) a boat. As it turns out, this approach worked quite well for Bavaria: Cruising World named the Vision 46 “Boat of the Year” in its 2013 full-size cruiser category, so the factory must be doing something right.

Bass Pro Shop founder Johnny Morris started the Tracker Boat program back in 1978 to provide boat, motor and trailer packages for the fishing public, and I doubt that he could have dreamt of where it would be after 30-plus years of operations. The Tracker name is fairly ubiquitous in fresh-water fishing areas, and the 2015 Pro Guide V-16 T looks to be a good example of the type of package that brought Tracker into such prominence. Built to serve as a fishing platform in protected waters, it boasts many convenience features that also serve to streamline the stowage lockers and keep the deck open and clear.

Sun Tracker builds pontoon barges of all shapes and sizes for a variety of specific purposes – and yes, throwing a party is a specific purpose! The compact, 2016 Party Barge 16 serves such a purpose, and is capable of carrying up to seven persons in comfort despite its small size. Price, size and power requirements are all near the lower end of the spectrum, leaving this pocket-sized party platform accessible by entry-level buyers, or folks just looking for something that will fit in the garage.

Sea-Doo has long been a familiar name among personal watercraft enthusiasts, and Bombardier Recreational Products (BRP) based in Canada keeps the name fresh with the 2015 GTI SE models.

Bayliner is no stranger to the boats we know as bowriders, with their walk-through split in the windshield that allows free passage from the cockpit to the forward seating well, where passengers can relax, recline or sunbathe in anticipation of a day of adventure and freedom on the water. Bayliner’s 170 Bowrider has all this and more.
Continue reading for more information on the Bayliner 170 Bowrider.
Visually appealing and built in Rochefort, France, by Bavaria Yachts, the Nautitech 40 couples solid mechanical specs with an interior that offers a sense of space. Experienced sailors can see its potential as an ocean cruiser or charter boat, while the less ambitious can downsize it from a four-cabin configuration to three cabins for lazy live-aboard summer afternoons.
The new Azimut 77S continues the success story of the Azimut 55S and delivers more space, more comfort and more power.
Featuring a sleek design language and a luxurious interior, the Azimut 77S is without a doubt one of the most wanted yachts in its class.
The Azimut 77S is loaded with innovative technologies and smart features and you’ll especially like the pivoting stern platform, the wave-piercing vertical bow, the single large deckhouse window and the glazed roof.
As far as power is concerned, the Azimut 77S is offered with a choice of three engine configurations and all of them are paired with the Volvo Penta IPS transmission.
Hit the jump for more information on the new Azimut 77S.
