The third yacht to come out of the innovative NeoDesign team of Salvetti & Biaggi, the new flagship Atlantis 58 lives up to the team’s growing reputation for exceptionally open sport yachts packed with unique features. The most notable and visible of these are the fully opening side windows that literally bring the outdoors in with fresh air and plenty of light, as well as a significantly oversized dining table that seats 12. Options are another of the team’s strengths, such as the choice of having an aft crew cabin or a massive tender garage for large water-toys. The 3-cabin layout encompasses a full-beam midship master stateroom, with the VIP forward. The third cabin is offered in different layouts to act as a TV/playroom with a plush sofabed, an office or onboard gym.

The first thing one notices about Sunseeker’s Predator 115 is the stunning lines of this thoroughbred luxury yacht. The design is pure Sunseeker, from its unstinting level of onboard luxury to the spacious areas normally seen on much larger motor yachts in her class. In fact, this vessel was inspired by her larger sibling, the highly-successful Predator 130. The expansive exterior areas include a generous, plush aft cockpit, sport flybridge with spa and wetbar, and foredeck social area to enjoy the best of al fresco living in the utmost sophisticated style. The saloon is offered in both a long and short layout, to allow for the owner’s preference for additional interior or exterior space, including optional balconies on either side of the main deck saloon, furthering the indoor/outdoor connection. The Predator 115 boasts 5 ensuite cabins to accommodate up to 12, highlighted by the full-beam master stateroom, another feature more often found on larger yachts.

Blue Thunder is the latest innovative personal watercraft to come out of the creative mind of Wamilton “Wammer” Teixera. Now on an undisclosed yacht in Russia, Blue Thunder puts out over 160 hp with an engine that has over 1,000cc more than a small car. It’s an exceptional craft that pushes the limits in both performance and styling, with its brawny powerplant and futuristic lines. Wamiltons thrives on fulfilling customer requests from hand-built custom hulls to complete motor builds. They specialize in creating personal watercraft to match a buyer’s custom yacht and are equally adept at producing freestyle watercraft for the general recreational rider as well as professionals such as noted jetski freerider Mark Gomez.

Though it has both its serious and practical side, this versatile center console is also comfortable, which leads to its appeal for poker-runs and general cruising. The strict attention to detail starts at the helm with its clear view of the bow for maximized maneuvering, especially in tight spaces. Forward is a U-shaped seating area perfect for socializing and relaxing. The aft section of the cushions can be raised to form an oversized lounge chair with a drink holder at hand.
