Sea Ray L650
Sea Ray’s new L Class was conceived to allow the weekend cruiser to step up to a true yacht. Engineered to be owner-operated, it features all the amenities demanded by serious yachtsmen. The L650 is striking from all angles. The huge moonroof can be opened to allow in the breeze and the stars, or snugged closed when you prefer an air-conditioned climate. The forward sunpad area features integrated seating and the option to lounge in the shade of the tropical awning. The expansive cockpit is perfect for al fresco dining, followed by a dip via the swim platform a few steps aft. The large windows do more than just accentuate the sleek exterior lines, bringing natural lighting to the salon and staterooms. The accommodations rival those of a 5-star resort. The full-beam master stateroom with an oversized head provides all the comforts of home, while 3 staterooms keep your guests ensconced in sumptuous luxury;

Azimut Atlantis 50 Coupe
Because the interior and exterior of the breathtaking Atlantis 50 Coupe were conceived by the artisans of Neo Design, this vessel seamlessly meshes all aspects of life above and belowdeck. From the oversized swim platform to the sharp, wave-splitting bow, the Atlantis 50 Coupe is an exercise in efficient luxury. Twin 600 hp Cummins turbodiesels deliver an impressive top speed of 32 knots and a comfortable cruising speed of 28 knots. The swim platform serves a huge aft cockpit featuring ample seating for large groups. Stepping inside the sliding glass doors into the salon, one has the feel of still being outside thanks to the enormous windows, yet the A/C staves off the hottest, most humid conditions the tropics can dish out. Available in either a 2- or 3-stateroom layout, the Atlantis 50 can easily accommodate 3 couples in complete comfort. In addition, the well-equipped galley is more than ready to meet every dining contingency;

Sunseeker Predator 57
The Predator 57 is a rare design — a yacht that looks as good outside as it does inside. The huge expanses of windows bring the sunshine and view in, and provide a striking presence for passersby. Introduced at the 2015 London Boat Show, this yacht is an instant classic, with roomy accommodations including a cavernous master stateroom. The upper deck is arranged under an expansive sunroof that can be opened to bring the outside in. Twin Volvo D13 turbodiesels deliver a top speed of 34 knots to quickly get your from one destination to the next. Combined with a cruising range of 250 nm, the Predator will take you wherever your heart desires. The top-notch build-quality means you can be engaged in casual conversation even with the engines at full howl;

Tiara 39 Coupe
The Tiara 39 Coupe is the perfect antidote for weekday stress. The simple act of stepping aboard is sure to reduce blood pressure as you set off on an overnight adventure or just a dinner cruise. Tiaras are a favorite of hardcore yachtsmen owing to the excellent fit and finish harmoniously combined with well-thought-out interiors. When equipped with Volvo Joystick engine controls for the twin 370-hp engines, docking in tight quarters is suddenly a breeze, making the 39 Coupe an excellent choice for those new to yachting. Separate aft and forward accommodations for 4 makes this a great family boat. The onboard diesel generator keeps the lights, everything in the galley, the entertainment system and the A/C going even if you’re anchored off a deserted island, far from shore power. The spacious salon flows into the dining area and helm to allow the skipper to be part of the party;

Numarine 70 HT
It was no surprise this beautiful vessel was quickly nominated for the International Yacht & Aviation Award in the “Poweryachts Up To 75 Meters” category when it was launched in 2015. Built by a renowned Turkish boatyard that has a long tradition of seaworthy commercial and pleasure craft, the Numarine 70 HT is a floating masterpiece that provides a no-compromises yachting experience. Large enough to be used for charters, it’s also an ideal yacht for large families or owners who simply enjoy entertaining big groups of guests. Accommodations consist of a master stateroom plus 3 ensuite staterooms which feature split berths, affording overnight — or longer — stays for the entire family or a range of friends. Separate crew quarters make this a self-contained ecosystem. The sleek exterior features extensive windows for uninterrupted sightlines and ample natural light for the interior, an extensive cockpit that’s perfect for al fresco dining and a spacious foredeck lounging area;
