The 61st annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show – “the greatest boat show on the seven seas” -- is just days away. From Wednesday, October 28 through Sunday, November 1, the show will feature more than 1000 exhibitors and over 1300 boats on display.
While you’re firming up your boat show plans, explore some of the innovative, luxurious, and “Florida-practical” powerboats InterMarine is proud to showcase this year.
Chaparral enjoys a well-earned international reputation for quality, innovative design, and unmatched customer service, due in part to its steady leadership and incredible craftsmanship, as well as designers and craftspeople share your passion for boating.
We’ll be featuring four Chaparral boats this year:
New for 2021 23 SSi OB Ski & Fish (pictured above)
Chaparral has done it again – all the features of its wildly popular Ski & Fish series in a bigger, better package! The 23SSi features standard stainless steel hardware, composite seat bases, efficient cockpit drainage system, vinyl wrapped dash, and an extended V-plane running surface. For comfort, enjoy the U-shaped cockpit seating, spacious bow, and reversible chaise lounges. And for get-up-and-go, choose from MerCruiser and Volvo power options.
Also new for 2021 is Chaparral’s 267 SSX Outboard, built with the most advanced technology afloat. The helm features a glass dash with optional dual touch screen displays that can be customized to your individual needs. The spacious, open aft cockpit features an adjustable sun lounger, and the bow area is equipped with hinged storage compartments under luxurious upholstery. The 267 SSX is a powerful and agile craft that glides through the water with minimal noise, and is destined to become a trendsetter for its design, performance, and function
The OSX Outboard Sports Luxury Series
Both the 280 OSX and 300 OSX are designed for long-range day cruises as well as dockside entertaining. With helm seats that can rotate to face aft, its open cockpit atmosphere won’t interfere with access to the roomy cabin area below, the OSX is versatile, dynamic, and gorgeous. And both boats incorporate Chaparral’s Vista View lounge concept, giving them the most innovative cockpit designs on the market. The 27’8” 280 OSX comes standard with an EFX Electric Arch and color coordinated canvas, with an optional fiberglass hardtop system. The 30’6” 300 OSX comes standard with a large integrated fiberglass hardtop system that includes a bonded skylight, lighting, and an optional Sure Shade for additional sun protection.
Four Winns isn’t just a boat, it’s a personal statement. From its manufacturing facility in Cadillac, Michigan, Four Winns has been building quality boats for over 35 years. The innovative Four Winns designers, engineers, and craftspeople are dedicated to the art of fine boatbuilding and consider the completion of every single boat a badge of honor.
We’re delighted to showcase three Four Winns models this year:
A luxurious 22’ runabout with some of the most comfortable, luxurious upholstery available, the HD 3 features a generous swim platform for plenty of space to hang out on the stern, as well as an enclosed head for comfort.
The slightly larger HD 5, at 24’4” features dual swim platforms and a swim platform lounge, a walk-through transom, stern storage compartments and coolers, an enclosed head, and all the luxury appointments you expect from Four Winns.
This 35’ luxury bowrider gives you everything you need for spectacular days on the water. It’s a roomy, luxuriously appointed boat ideal for entertaining family or friends both above and below deck. Up front, there’s wraparound seating, armrests, and a built-in cooler. The cockpit features dual swiveling seats, and aft is a fully functioning head and plenty of storage space.
Jeanneau Power Boats
The strength of the Jeanneau brand is obvious in the beauty of every one of their boats. No other boat builder can offer the same standard of cutting-edge design, superior finish, performance, and customer satisfaction in such a competitively priced package.
We’re highlighting five iconic Jeanneau Power Boats this year. We showcased three of them in our September 20 post: the NC 795, the Leader 10.5, and the Leader 12.5. You can read all of the highlights here.
In addition, we’ll be featuring these two popular Jeanneau Power Boats:
Designed for weekend cruising, the new NC 895 has an incomparably bright interior, wide windows in the helm station, and a cockpit with an L-shaped saloon, reclining seatbacks, and armrests with cup holders. There’s an opening side gate, a recessed side deck, as well as very generous storage space. The main cabin offers a fully equipped head with shower.
The NC 1095 is the new flagship of the NC line. At 35 feet, it’s the perfect family cruiser, ideal for a weekend or a day on the water. The NC1095 includes features like recessed side decks to allow safety while moving around the boat as well as easy access to the helm. A comfortable L-shaped lounge aft seats a large group and easily converts into a sun bed area. The forward sun deck incorporates lifting back rests for flexible lounging. Large transom platforms on either side of the outboard engines make boarding safe and easy.
Anybody who’s serious about saltwater fishing knows WellCraft as one of the best-known brands in the marine industry and the dominant brand among saltwater fishing power boats, worldwide.
InterMarine Boats will display five models from WellCraft’s Fisherman series at this year’s boat show, any of which would be perfect for any avid South Florida fishermen.
At 18’2” this compact boat allows you and your passengers to sit comfortably for a day of fishing or family cruising.
The 222 Fisherman is truly a multi-purpose vessel, featuring fishing room for you and your guests with both cockpit seating and comfortable bow seating.
Powered by single or dual engines, this 24'4" gives you the length and muscle you need to head for offshore fishing grounds and features a high freeboard, deep hull, and articulated bow flare to contribute to a smooth ride.
With fishing functionality at its heart, the 262F also provides loads of family comfort. Up forward, the bow allows family and guests to relax, while the stern and the helm accommodate the fishing tools, equipment, and all the action.
The 352 Fisherman, the new flagship of the WellCraft fleet, is ready to deliver adventure to any fisherman. It blends fishing features, luxurious comfort, and performance in a triple-engine center console.
