Yachts from 40 to 80 feet


Absolute 48 Coupé

Absolute Yachts 48 CoupeLuxurious comfort with a sporty soul is the best way to describe the Absolute 48 Coupé. This yacht is out of the ordinary with incomparable comfort that creates the ultimate yachting experience. With a three-stateroom layout, the unique use of space is super lavishing in this category.  

The cockpit layout is absolutely amazing. The non-traditional benches that can be configured the way you want on the aft deck, giving the owner the option to choose the layout. A step down to the large swim platform provides easy access to the rest of the yacht. The bow area can be easily accessed from either side of the cockpit. The large sun pad is large enough to accommodate three friends. 

The helm is cleanly laid out with two large displays and a third display for engine instrumentation to the left of the steering wheel. The Volvo digital shifters are immediate to the right with the pod joystick. The sliding door to the starboard side is not something you normally find on a yacht of this size.  

I absolutely love the placement and layout of the galley to the port aft of the interior cabin. The L-shaped galley has beautiful cabinets on the port wall above the electric stove. The large square stainless-steel sink is forward facing. There is plenty of counter space for prepping for your favorite charcuterie board. Forward of the galley is the large U-shaped dinette on the port side. There is a plush love seat sized couch directly across.  

The lower area of the cabin is superbly laid out with two full bathrooms and three staterooms. Two of the staterooms have queen berths, while the third has twin berths that can be pushed into a full bed. The master has an abundant amount of natural lighting with large windows running the entire length of the outer walls. Both bathrooms have a European style to them with round countertop sink bowls and more.  

It takes a lot to impress me, but the Absolute 48’ Coupé has left a lasting impression. This yacht is going to make a statement in the market and turn heads in every marina that she enters.

Cruisers 60 Cantius

Cruisers YachtsThe 60 Cantius sporty design and open cockpit make this yacht rise to the top of any list. Every inch of this boat screams luxury and functionality. From the ergonomical design and functional helm you can control this beauty with your fingertips. Docking using the joystick. Digital shift, Ray Marine touch screen displays and the completely digital ship’s systems, Ray Marine display are a fingertip away.  The side-by-side captain’s chairs are adjustable from every direction that you desire. The engine room was laid out by an artist as the wiring looms are immaculately run throughout the room.  The components, ranging from the fuel filters to the circuit breakers, the main engines are easy to access for quick maintenance.  

The cockpit is something that you expect to see only in a movie.  With a 360° view, there is no bad seat in the house.  Open the sunroof or expose the skylights for additional light and air. The port side dinette across from the helm station comfortably seats four.  

The outside seating arrangement has two optional bar stools directly in front of the galley wall on the port side.  The U-shaped dinette to the aft surrounds the large wood table.  The table can even be powered down to create a large sunbathing area. Access to the swim platform is on the starboard side of the spacious area. Now, the bow lounger is where you want to be.  With two adjustable chase loungers, the crescent lounge area just aft of the loungers gives you a cabana feel that could arguably be the best seats on the boat.  The pop-up top completes the perfect place to enjoy the morning coffee or watch the sunset.

The master bedroom that runs from port to starboard is spacious and has a look that just says wow.  From its own refrigerator so that you don’t have to run up to the galley for a cold bottle of water to the mini wall closet that is nothing short of ergonomically designed.  The optional espresso machine is a must have.  The master bath even has dual vanity sinks and a spacious rain shower. The VIP stateroom can be compared to most masters on other boats.  The third stateroom with the bunk beds is perfect additional sleeping arrangements or storage.  The forward mid galley just outside the VIP stateroom has a wine cooler and laundry facilities that are easy to access and use.

The 60 Cantius has left me speechless, and I know it will do the same for you.

Cranchi Sessantasette 67 ft

When people think of Italian boat builders, Cranchi Yachts is one of the brands at the top of everyone’s list. Started by Giovanni Cranchi on the shore of Lake Como, Cranchi Yachts has grown into a capital company with a dealer network across six (6) continents and over fifty (50) countries. With over 150 years and counting (established in 1870), Cranchi is one of the premier boat builders in the world.    

Part of the Cranchi flybridge range, the new model Sessantassette (the number 67 written in Italian) 67 ft has a sleek profile, splaying bow, and pronounced high and protective gunwale, giving the yacht a naval allure. This elegant boat is a work of art, a collaboration between the Cranchi Yachts research development department and Christian Grande, entrusted with artistic direction. The best Italian design and style are seen throughout but stand out the most in the saloon – a refined living area, elevated by furnishings that lend a strong personality. The saloon is part of an open space area that also includes the galley and wheelhouse, but the whole zone is elegantly divided by a spectacular backdrop that separates the lounge and dining room from the service areas

The lines and shape that characterize this yacht are emblematic, complementing and echoing each other throughout the various elements of the profile. One example is the line extending from the curve of the stern hatch to the part of the fly that juts out, or between the outline of the windows and the break in the centre of the bulwark. This break provides an elegant reduction in volume on the side of the yacht, from the gunwale to the stringer, enhancing the panoramic view from the large windows that surround the saloon. The dining room has an uninterrupted view of the sea, with nothing to obstruct natural light from flooding the internal space.

Following the experience gained with the Settantotto, the new Sessantasette also features extraordinary technology, including an advanced home automation system combined with entertainment devices and a wealth of hi-tech materials to make the yacht more enjoyable and comfortable. The boat can be powered by two (2) Volvo Penta D13 (1000 HP each) with IPS3 dual propeller pod drivers. 

If there is a yacht that you want to fall in love with, this is it!

Greenline 45 Fly

A sideward glance at the new Greenline 45 Fly does not reveal all the innovative features incorporated into this sleek yacht design. You’d have to hover over the water in a drone in order to scout the impressive solar panel array that delivers enough power to ensure your drinks stay cold on the water, without having to fire up the generator while relaxing at anchor. The end result? No noise, no vibrations, no emissions and no disturbing your neighbours as the sun sets on another glorious day on the water. When you include the high performance LiPo batteries, even high load appliances like air conditioning can be run in silence.’

The 45 Fly is dressed up with solar panels that produce 8 kW/h per day with the 600 W standard array, with an optional hard-top setup to bump up production to 1,200 W. The full beam Flybridge superstructure expands over the entire width of the yacht, making it the largest in its class.

The bridge helm is mounted portside. Behind the comfortable double-wide captain’s bench is an antenna array, a sturdy stainless-steel unit, with an optional mount for a radome. 

A unique feature is the emergency bilge pump on the aft deck starboard side. The lower helm offers 5’8” of headroom and a single windshield for unencumbered viewing. Outdoor access is easy, through a starboard sliding door leading directly to the side deck and the boarding gate, for easy, single-handed tie-ups, if necessary

Monte Carlo MCY 70 Skylounge

I think my heart just skipped a beat as I did a double take. I may have just fallen in love with the MCY 70 Skylounge when it took my breath away. There is no other way to describe the lines, the design and the elegance that this yacht projects whether she is in the marina or on the water. If you want to turn heads, this is the yacht that will do just that.

MCY 70 Skylounge’s new spacious enclosed Flybridge is flooded with natural light. No matter what the season is, you will be traveling in style and comfort on this bridge. The helm is forward boasting confidence with the single helm chair and spaciously laid out displays and instrumentation. The plush seating that stretches the entire length of the port side is something that you would expect to find in your home and not on a boat. The all-white ambiance just screams classy and elegant from the white cabinets to the neutral flooring and light gray furnishings. In the aft is the large double sliding stainless steel door that opens up to a teak lined platform that is perfect for your morning coffee.

The bow area is another reason the MCY 70 separates itself from others in its class. Teak wood throughout, spacious walkways, two large teak tables on either side of the enormous sunbathing area complete the open area. The lounger is big enough to hold ten plus people and is ready to party if you are.  

Stepping inside the cabin, the first thing that stands out is the glass stairway to the bridge. Wrapped in all stainless steel, these steps are open, clear and create an open-air feeling while adding functionality. The 360° view from the windows doesn’t make you feel like you are inside. The galley has a nice six-person glass dining table on the starboard side and immediate to the port is the galley that will make most home kitchens envious.

Stepping aboard this 70-footer gives you the look and feel of a 100ft yacht. The perfectly selected colors and furniture open every room on this yacht. The window design, whether you are on the bridge or the main level, allows natural light to flow through areas effortlessly.

Prestige X60

This has to be one of the most well designed and thought out yachts that has been introduced to the market in quiet some time. From bow to stern there is something for everyone and a “wow” feature in every part of the yacht. Prestige is going to have to make an extra set of molds because this one is going to sell out.

It’s hard to not be absolutely impressed with the design and layout of the bow lounge on the yacht. With “innovative asymmetrical architecture that provides exceptional volume and comfort” the entire forward bow is embellished with large plush cushions. The cushions on both the port and starboard have a rumble seat functionality to them to create a face-to-face dinette area around the small octagon table. By removing the cushions, you have a teak covered walking surface that have four oversized storage lockers built into the floor. These lockers are finished and perfect for dock lines and fenders.  

The magnificent layout of the bridge is open. The double wide helm is forward to provide an unobstructed view of the bow. The u-shaped lunge to the starboard is plush and can accommodate 4-5 guests comfortably. Immediately behind the helm is the fully equipped galley, containing a six-person dining table that is perfect for alfresco snacking. Aft of the dinette is a seating lounge with cocktail table. The hard top is equipped with an opening roof and plenty of room to mount all your electronics.  

Stepping through the wide electric opening bay door into a cabin creates a true indoor-outdoor lanai feel. Exceptional wood finish and soft touch marble countertops can be seen throughout. Access to the master is aft, while the guest quarters are forward giving you excellent privacy when needed.  

The functionality and the elegance and luxury that this yacht radiates is phenomenal. Having captained every model in the Prestige lineup, I can’t wait to get behind the helm of this beauty. I know that her design and performance will match if not exceed the other Prestige models.    

MSRP: Approx USD $2M USD

Princess V50

Coming soon to a waterway near you, the restyled Princess V50 luxury yacht. Below the waterline, its hull form remains unchanged. Above the waterline, we find a flurry of revisions and upgrades. Aesthetics include new window lines and air intake covers. Living areas have been tweaked for more comfort.

Below deck, U-shaped dinette seating replaces L-shaped furniture. Amidships, the full-beam master stateroom’s starboard sofa can now be swapped with a sideboard. Freshwater capacity benefits from a modest bump for longer, lingering showers. A solid-surface sink replaces the stainless-steel sink.

The elongated canopy shade provides respite from the sun’s piercing rays. Aft, new, separate U-shaped and L-shaped seating with (optional seat infill) allows access to the cockpit from port side transom steps. Full aft, the hot and cold transom shower is newly styled.

Upgraded engines belong to a family of 7.7 L turbocharged I-6s. Standard power, twin Volvo IPS600s, rated 440 hp each, offer a modest increase over the previous 435 hp. Optional are Volvo Penta IPS 650s rated 480 hp. With the base power package, maximum speed clocks from 29 to 31 knots Optional engines, with 80 more hp, go a little faster, from 31 to 33 knots.

Volvo Penta Inboard Performance System (IPS) is famous for boosting acceleration up to 15 percent, 20 percent higher top speeds, and up to 30 percent lower fuel consumption. Besides going faster and further on a gallon of gas, it also runs quieter. As a bonus, fuel capacity increases by 225L/69USG/49GF, so you can go even further afield on a tank of gas.

Besides creature comforts, a V50 boasts a goodly number of state-of-the-art technologies. The Optional Garmin On-Deck smart boat system tracks, monitors, and controls onboard systems via a smartphone app.

A Volvo-Garmin system has replaced last season’s Raymarine navigation. Volvo Penta assisted docking transforms white knuckle docking into a pleasurable experience. Wind, current or crowded marina: No problem.
