2018 Fort Lauderdale Boat Show: Boats to know

Share This Article!

 

The 59th Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show is right around the corner. The world's biggest boat show will take over Fort Lauderdale from Wednesday, October 31st through Sunday, November 4th and will span several locations across the city.

InterMarine is proud to present some of the finest, highest-quality powerboats in the boating industry, featuring a lineup that reflects the sporty yet sophisticated demographic of the South Florida boating community.

For the 2018 Fort Lauderdale Boat Show, we'd like to direct your attention to three of our best-selling brands: top-quality American-built Chaparral, sophisticated French-built Jeanneau Powerboats, and luxurious Prestige Luxury Motor Yachts.

 

CHAPARRAL BOATS (location at FLIBS will be H Dock Slip 206/207)

American-made Chaparral boats are well known for their quality and craftsmanship. They are made in Nashville, Georgia: a place where strong values and a solid work ethic are an intrinsic part of life. This results in high-end boats that are made with genuine care.

New from Chaparral Boats will be the marvelous 23 H20 OB. Chaparral's H2O line is already a favorite straightforward option for new boaters or, conversely, for seasoned boaters looking to scale down to something uncomplicated and practical. The new Chaparral 23 H2O OB offers the most room in this fabulous entry-level boat line from Chaparral boats.

The new Chaparral 23 H2O OB offers a beautiful, classic look and space for days with a stunning capacity for 13 passengers. It features stainless steel hardware, a cockpit drainage system, and extended V-Plane running surface- these are just some of the little luxuries that make the 23 H2O OB much more than a standard entry-level outboard boat. The best part though? Even though this boat is fancy, the very reasonable price includes the trailer.



JEANNEAU POWERBOATS (location at FLIBS – H Dock Slip 817/825)

The new Jeanneau powerboats are truly in a league all their own.

Effortless European elegance, unparalleled comfort, and unprecedented performance make Jeanneau Powerboats a force to be reckoned with. Let's take a look at three of their latest rockstar models.

New 2019 Jeanneau NC 1095

We're starting the list with the very impressive Jeanneau NC 1095. This 35' boat is truly a testament to the skill and ingenuity of the design team at Centkowski & Denert Design Studio. The NC 1095 is simply cavernous. The list of highlights aboard this remarkable weekender boat from Jeanneau is extensive, so today we will focus on just a few.

For starters, the Jeanneau NC 1095 features three private staterooms. Three private staterooms in a 35' boat? Yes, please! Two of the staterooms feature skylights, and all of the staterooms have some form of natural light. The main stateroom also incorporates the signature long hull windows that Jeanneau boats are known for. The Jeanneau NC 1095 comfortably sleeps 8 between its 3 staterooms and the convertible beds within the salon.

A second noteworthy feature is that there is a side door inside the cockpit right next to the helm. This sliding glass door is just one of the many ways that Jeanneau builds in an outstanding amount of fresh air and sunlight into their boats, another one of their signature touches. This helm-side door allows for easy access to the walkaround platform and much more agile docking. Speaking of the walkaround platform, we really do mean this is a platform: it is incredibly roomy, steady, and safe with high railings, making this 35' walkaround feel like a much bigger vessel.

Lastly, we want to mention the inventive moveable aft seating arrangement. The benches around the aft dinette table move forward and backward to allow for better maneuverability as needed. This is a feature that, simply put, just makes a boater's life easier. Sometimes it really is the small things that make a huge difference!

The Jeanneau NC 1095 is making its official North American debut at the 2018 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.


New 2019 Jeanneau Leader 9.0 CC

If there is one single phrase that can capture the essence of the new Jeanneau Leader 9.0 CC, it is simply this: serious FUN in the SUN. The new Jeanneau Leader 9.0 CC is the center console boat that embodies the outdoor-living philosophy of Jeanneau Powerboats possibly better than any other boat in its lineup.

The Leader 9.0 CC offers ample seating arrangements for you and your guests to enjoy, with flip up/down bench seats aft and large, cushiony spaces toward the bow. If you wish, the aft seats can flip up and the table may be removed to give your boating party room to fish. Having all this space to walk around on the outside does not mean that one has to sacrifice other comforts, however. The Leader 9.0 CC brilliantly accommodates a double berth and a full, proper head down below.

The thing that we REALLY love about the new Jeanneau Leader 9.0 CC is the incredible performance that is achieved thanks to its twin-engine capacity. This sporty powerboat from Jeanneau may be equipped with twin engines up to 250HP for a ride that is certain to put a smile on your face!


New Jeanneau Leader 33 OB

Jeanneau's Leader 33 OB is a sleek outboard cruiser that is luxurious as it is spacious. The amount of light inside its posh cabin is truly outstanding. This sporty express cruiser offers exquisite details and finishes along with thoughtful features like an electric sunroof in the hardtop and a pocket door inside the cabin for when more privacy is desired.

You are going to absolutely love the versatility of the layout aboard the Leader 33 OB and its chic, polished style. Although it has been already mentioned, it doesn't hurt to remind the reader that the amount of natural light that's brought into Jeanneau powerboats is absolutely refreshing. Enormous windows and generous portholes throughout the Leader 33 OB make this a (literally) brilliant boat.

 

PRESTIGE YACHTS (location at FLIBS is E dock Slip 504 – Lime Zone AB 6)

Prestige luxury motor yachts are the epitome of European elegance and practicality.

Prestige 590 Yacht

The all-new Prestige 590 yacht is one of the most exciting new yachts we have seen recently. This is a completely new yacht bridging the gap between the Prestige 520 and the 620 yachts, replacing the Prestige 550 and 560. Sensational style, practical details, and a distinct attention to comforts onboard are the hallmarks of this enchanting vessel. The Prestige 590 beautifully marries form, function, beauty, and comfort.

Prestige 590 makes no compromises. Luxurious details excite the senses and smart technology makes operating this yacht an utterly pleasurable experience. We love the dazzling mirrored salon doors and rounded furniture edges. Prospective yacht owners will love the ability to choose between having crew quarters or a hydraulic tender garage. And of course, natural light abounds inside the Prestige 590 yacht, with its trademark dipped salon windows providing breathtaking, 360-degree views from anywhere on the main deck. Yacht owners in the Miami area are in for a real treat with this luxury yacht from Prestige.

The Prestige 590 is truly a gorgeous yacht.

The classic Four Winns 355 Vista is a remarkable cruiser built for a sophisticated boater, and now it is available with outboard power. This gorgeous 35' cruiser from Four Winns emulates much larger yachts in layout and build, with an enclosed pilothouse, bi-fold glass patio doors, living space integrations, and an outdoor BBQ. This new cruiser boat from Four Winns is not to be missed!
