We’re Five Days Away from the Event of the Year

It’s Almost That Time…

The 2019 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show is just five days away at this point – and if you’re in town, you can feel the excitement. Not only are we going to have a stellar yacht line-up this year, but we’re going to have a tented client lounge right on the Extension Dock at Las Olas Marina. What, did you think that we wouldn’t be marking the best year in our company’s history with a HUGE presence at the Show (called “FLIBS” for short)? Of course we are!

“Satisfaction”, a 2017 84′ Azimut, is yet another world-class yacht that will be making her inaugural appearance at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. Of all the yachts for sale at the show, this one in particular is sure to be getting a LOT of attention. After all, she just took a massive $500,000 price cut, which had the whole yachting community buzzing for days. Read more below to find out why.

The second yacht that we wanted to highlight today, as part of our “Best of FLIBS” series, is “Open Wide”, the well-known 2008 75′ Lazzara LSX. Like “Satisfaction”, this yacht has an outsized profile – after all, she’s been called “the nicest LSX in the world”. High praise, for sure, but well-deserved. Read all about her below!

2017 84′ Azimut “Satisfaction”

Right now, there are nearly one hundred late-model 80′ to 90′ motor yachts for sale in the United States – and “Satisfaction“, after a $500,000 price reduction, is hands-down the best value among them. And you don’t need to wait until the Boat Show to see her – because you’re reading this article at JUST the right time. That’s because you’re invited to Satisfaction’s Open House, taking place TODAY (10/25) from 3pm-5pm at Pier 66.

Built entirely to US specifications, this Azimut 84 boasts a stunning custom interior, notable for its hand-picked Italian marble and exquisite built-in furniture. Her A/V system is nothing short of world-class, and she comes equipped with options like electric-at-rest stabilization, Humpree Trim Tabs, and other highly sought-after items.

Her maintenance program is impressive in every respect – just this summer, “Satisfaction” had a full detail and her running gear serviced. Her rigorous maintenance program is reflected, loud & clear, in a recent survey of the vessel.

This stunning Azimut 84 – which just took a $500,000 price reduction down to $2,999,000 – will also, of course, be one of the highlights of the upcoming Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, where she may be found, along with our other exclusive yachts, at Las Olas Marina’s Extension Dock.


2008 75′ Lazzara LSX “Open Wide”

Thanks to a recent multi-stage refit, as well as an intensive maintenance program, “Open Wide” is arguably the nicest LSX in existence. Her refit started with a new paint job, completed at the Lazzara factory, and ended with the installation of a brand new engine room. She was re-powered with quad Volvo IPS 600s, including new engines, drives, a generator, water maker, and Volvo’s extended five-year warranty.

Although “Open Wide” is a 2008 model, she continues to set the bar for how express cruisers should be built – her lines are impossibly sleek and her four staterooms are massive. The yacht has never looked better, with a full detail, bottom paint, and prop speed on her drives, completed just this summer.

On top of everything else, at a price of $1.495 million, “Open Wide” is the best-priced LSX 75 in Florida – that’s because her owner is extremely motivated to sell her. That’s also why this yacht is going to be making a high-profile appearance at the upcoming Fort Lauderdale Boat Show. So come on over to the Orange Zone at Las Olas Marina between October 30th and November 3rd and see her for yourelf!


Still on the Fence? Don’t Be – Come to the Show!

We’re going to have seven stellar motor yachts at the 2019 Fort Lauderdale Boat Show, and “Satisfaction” and “Open Wide” are just two of them. If you’re looking to find the right yacht – and the right yacht broker for you – all we can say is, come on down to Las Olas Marina during the Show and see what we, and our exclusive yachts, are all about! At a minimum, you should join us for our Friday night Boat Show cocktail party – taking place on November 1st from 5pm to 7pm at Las Olas Marina.
