5 Luxurious Yachts To See At The Hong Kong International Boat Show
November 30, 2017 | BY Kevin Cureau
The Hong Kong International Boat Show, organised by Club Marina Cove, returns this weekend for its 23rd edition. From Friday, December 1 to Sunday, December 3 visitors can enjoy a spectacular display of yachts and boats, many of which will be presented in Hong Kong for the first time. The best part? Admission is free for everyone.
Azimut Grande 27 Metri by Azimut Yachts
Designed by Stefano Righini, the Azimut Grande 27 Metri presents a widebody concept with the owner’s suite on the main deck and the possibility of four or five cabins on the lower deck, which is a unique feature for a boat this size.
The extensive use of carbon fibre, which Azimut has pioneered in all of its collections, makes it possible to extend the space available without increasing the yacht’s weight, resulting in better performance in the water and unprecedented comfort onboard.
The vertical bow and the big full-length windows give the boat a sporty, edgy character while the harmonious flowing lines draw comparisons to Italian Renaissance art.
Riva 100' Corsaro by Riva Yachts
The Riva 100' Corsaro is the brand's new flybridge yacht, flawlessly blending together comfort, performance, style, technology, design and safety.
Its silhouette resembles the tip of an arrow, resulting in a sporty, streamlined profile. Large glazed windows ensure a breathtaking visual impact as well as wonderful panoramic views from the interior of the vessel.
A showstopping feature is a new operating system allows the garage door to fold open, creating a superyacht beach club at water level.
MCY 105 by Monte Carlo Yachts
The flybridge can accommodate 12 guests across two lounges and a dining area. A galley and deck chairs complete the layout to make it the perfect relaxation zone. On the main deck, the salon features a bar and sofas to create a spacious loft, but the best part is the sliding dining room windows, which give the impression of dining al fresco on the water.
Suppliers for the 105's interiors include prestigious names such as Hermès, Poltrona Frau, Armani Casa, Rubelli and Pierre Frey.
Galeon 500 Fly by Galeon Yachts
The Galeon 500 model received the “European Powerboat of the Year" award in 2016 and brought a series of innovations to the Galeon range.
Highly customisable, the 500 Fly offers an amazing amount of interior space and flexibility when it comes to cockpit arrangements on all three decks—a staple in all third generation Galeon yachts. Customers can choose between a full-sized garage with a sundeck above, a classic L-shaped sofa and crew cabin setup or the innovative roto-seat option that also includes a compact garage.
The bow rest area comes with a transformable seating arrangement—a first for a yacht this size—able to quickly alter the sundeck configuration into a comfortable seating area.
Princess 75 Motor Yacht by Princess Yachts
The ingenious design of the eagerly anticipated Princess 75 Motor Yacht offers efficient, agile cruising with the latest modified deep V-hull enabling you to plane at lower speeds.
In addition to panoramic views from the flybridge, the U-shaped seating with dining table, rear sunpad and wet bar provide ample relaxation areas. Natural light flows into the main deck through extended window lines and a unique full-height window on the port side, making the free-standing dining area a spectacular place to entertain.
