Onboard the Top Charter Yachts at The Fort Lauderdale Boat Show 2022
The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show is the greatest yacht show on earth! The 2022 showcase of yachts from around the world was in full swing and offered something for every boating enthusiast in attendance.
All Yachts Worldwide was onboard over two dozen charter yachts at the Ft. Lauderdale Boat Show. We did walkthroughs on the new builds along with recent refits. The quality of craftsmanship and creative use of space both in both outside and inside interiors was a beautiful sight to behold.
New to charter: Making their debut to the charter market 176’ Lady B (Built by Bennetti) made a huge splash with outdoor seating for 30. They hosted a sundowner party at the show so we could sample the chefs appetizers and experience the service of the crew first hand. Included in the charter rate is a 63’ Bertram tender that offers an additional 2 staterooms for guests.
Fresh out of a complete interior and exterior refit including an art-deco style decor and magnificent new blue hull a complete gym with steam shower, a glass-paneled guest elevator and one of the most impressive sundecks ever created for this size of yacht.
• RARE: Full-width Owner’s stateroom with fixed port and starboard outside balconies
• VIP stateroom on the bridge deck
• Beach club and swimming platform
• RARE: Exceptional sundeck offering dining for 30, day head, shower, BBQ & protected Jacuzzi
• RARE: Owner & guest glass-paneled elevator
• RARE: discrete crew access away from guests throughout the yacht
• 63’ Bertram Sport Fish available in tandem for the avid sportsman
143’ HOM ( launched in 2019 by Bennetti ) was another show stopper. The sweet things with Benetti’s are the clean decks on every level. You do not have to be looking at the engine of the tender or jetskis on deck while sipping your favorite beverage; the watertoys are all tucked away in the garage keeping all three decks reserved for outdoor space for sunning and dining. Many yachts also offer seating on the lower deck in the front which allows you to see the action when pulling into the dock at St. Barth’s.
Best refits: 130’ Lionshare recently underwent a complete refit including all new soft goods from top to bottom making this proven charter yacht even more popular with the fresh interior.
LIONSHARE offers everything a charter guest could dream of - scuba diving, masseuse, outdoor cinema - services rarely seen on this size yacht.
LIONSHARE features traditional exterior lines, but her welcoming interior is contemporary and beautiful thanks to a multitude of refits throughout her life. Her most recent in 2017 reinvigorated this stunning motor yacht for charter. This refit radically revolutionized the interior spaces. On the main deck a wall was removed to create an open layout in the main salon and dining space. The yacht’s floors were redone, adding beautiful hardwood and the bridge deck was opened to create more space for guests to enjoy. Luxury charter yacht LIONSHARE received further updates in 2020 with all new furnishings and soft goods on deck, new interior soft goods and upgraded carpeting in all staterooms.
238’ Coral Ocean just completed a 35 million dollar refit with refreshing improvements. What once was a dark interior has now been transformed to light colors and fabrics complete with a massage room, beauty salon and new large jacuzzi. The master now offers panoramic viewing!
