Project: Cruisers 55 Fly

Cruisers present the project for a 55 Fly set to debut before the first half of 2024, and the first in a three model flybridge range, with a second model set to arrive in 2025.  Designed by Luiz Debasto, the Cruisers 55 Fly replaces the 2017 launched 54 Fly model which came from a Facheris design and was based on the 54 Cantius.  The 55 Fly is the first totally new Cruisers range to come from the since April 2022 ownership of MarineMax, which is also North America's largest boat dealership and a distributor to both European made Azimut and Galeon yachts.  With Luiz Debasto presenting a head to toe Euro-designed offer from an American brand ever, it will be interesting how the Cruisers 55 Fly and the following models will affect the dealership of these brands.  With a length overall just shy of seventeen meters Cruisers is saying the 55 Fly will offer a three cabin layout, with rendering showing a full beam midships owners stateroom and an astern galley main deck.  Another feature of the 55 Fly will be a drop down bulwark to port side, which is not really a new feature for Cruisers, who offers this in its sporty 38 to fifty feet GLS models, but never in the eleven to eighteen meters Cantius yacht series.  The Cruisers 55 Fly is to be powered by twin Volvo 725hp engines with IPS pod drives propulsion.

New Model: Absolute 52 Fly

For 2023 Absolute presents its new 52 Fly model, a sixteen meter flybridge motor yacht full of comfort, and class leading accommodation .  The second generation 52 Fly follows the design theme as Absolute Design and Research Lab outlined with the 60 Fly in 2021 and followed with the 56 Fly last year, with this sixteen meter flybridge motor yacht doing the third act of this future looking design.  The new Absolute 52 Fly is a modern flybridge motor yacht, which features an unusual layout of an owners stateroom forward, and the VIP room at midships.  A third cabin with twin berths is located to starboard, with a guest shower head serving the two guest cabins located to port side.  An optional crew cabin is also available in the Absolute 52 Fly, which if you option does not affect the glazed stern parapet open gunwale design.  The Absolute 52 Fly has a living main deck with an astern galley layout, a lounging which becomes dining C-shaped dinette forward, and a side door equipped helm station featuring a direct access to the open gunwale for easy side mooring.  Of note in the Absolute 52 Fly are the flybridge which again is one of the most spacious in this size and is optionable with a hard-top, and the fore deck spaces which is another class leading act.  Falling short somewhere, I would say the performance of the Absolute 52 Fly is not really breath taking, with a top speed of 28 knots and a cruise of twenty, and a 190 nautical miles range.

New Model: Maritimo M75 Flybridge Motor Yacht

In 2023 Maritimo has celebrated twenty years of boat building, and what a better way to do so then by launching not one but two new flagships, both being the largest builds to date adding two foot from the previous largest offer, which was the 2009 unveiled 73 Cruising Motor Yacht.  This new Maritimo M75 Flybridge Motor Yacht follows the S75 which debuted in Spring at the Sanctuary Cove boat show, with which it also shares hull, and offers a near identical layout with the addition of an enclosed flybridge up top.  The M75 Enclosed Flybridge is reachable via an internal stair case to port side, and offers a dinette, C-shaped lounge and an opposite helm station.  To aft of the enclosed bridge is also an alfresco area with a large C-shaped dinette, and an island standing wet-bar.  The Maritimo M75 offers a main deck with an astern galley layout while, and as most enclosed bridge yachts has no helm station here which adding space to a very large lounging dining area.  Below deck is a four double cabins layout with an owners stateroom at midships and VIP suite forward, with a fourth cabin with twin bunks.  Considering the 22 meter size a bunk guest cabin can be a let down for some, but consider also that the Maritimo 75 flagship series is very well thought on the engineering side of things, especially in what regards to efficiency, engine positioning and shaft angle. This is something not seen much nowadays. The Maritimo M75 is standard powered by twin Scania 1150hp engines with optional 1380 or 1625hp MTU engines.  Official speed numbers are not provided, but a review online of the first hull sharing S75 which was powered with the Scania's 1150hp did reach 28 knots in a very light ship set up.

Project: Azimut Fly 72

While some other brands keep delaying a new model, Azimut anticipates the market with the new Fly 72, a project announced just ten days before debuting at the 2023 Cannes boat show, which will debut along the two other Magellano 60 and Verve 48 Azimut novelties at the Cote d'Azur passarelle. The new Azimut Fly 72 replaces the fall 2015 launched 72 Flybridge after seven years of production, and continues the evolution of the Alberto Mancini era, which started with the 78 Flybridge in 2019. Three more Azimut to go for Alberto Mancini and transforming all the Flybridge range to his vision. The Azimut Fly 72 will also feature interior by Fabio Fantolino, a new name for the Italian builder, but also a first for the Torino and Milan based architect in the boating World. According to Azimut press release Fantolino will bring a transversal design language in the Fly 72, with the interior rendering showing clean modern furnishings. In the press release Azimut has not shared details of the Fly 72 accommodation, of which I would expect a standard four cabins layout and a crew cabin for two. Azimut is also quiet on the technical details, the outgoing 72 Flybridge is Man powered with shafts, but the 68 and 78 are Volvo IPS powered. So it will be interesting if Azimut will continue it's move into pods with this new Fly 72 model.

Project: Whitehaven 6500 Sports Flybridge

Whitehaven present a new model and line with this  6500 Sports Flybridge project.  Based on the hull lines of its 6500 series offered in four other versions; Sport Yacht, Flybridge, Coupe, and Sunbridge, this new 6500 Sports Flybridge brings a sportfishing aft deck layout to a modern Euro inspired yacht line forward.  With the 6500 Sports Flybridge Whitehaven wants to compete with the other down under Maritimo Offshore series and Riviera Sports Motoryacht line who have had success with similar products.  The Whitehaven 6500 Sports Flybridge will offer a three double cabins interior, with a choice for a crew cabin at midships to port side.  A technical interesting details according to the plans, is that with the crew cabin the engines of the 6500 Sports Flybridge will move further aft, although I do think this might be an error, as production wise this does not make much sense.  The Whitehaven 6500 Sports Flybridge is to be powered by twin Man 1300hp with line shaft propulsion.

Project: Van Der Valk 21.27 metre Project Micamo

Van der Valk Shipyard in the Netherlands is taking its fully custom approach to the next level with the 21.27-metre Project Micamo. This bespoke flybridge motoryacht has been ordered by a client with precise requirements in terms of range and led to new rules being set by the Japanese flag state authorities. With a sophisticated exterior and interior by Guido de Groot Design, Project Micamo is set to showcase the finest Dutch craftsmanship to Japan in a unique way when delivered. It also confirms how far Van der Valk is prepared to go to meet custom demands. The owner of Project Micamo is keen to sail on his own keel to the Ogasawara Islands, a UNESCO World Heritage site located some 500 nautical miles south of the main Japanese archipelago. A 24-hour ferry service runs to the archipelago from Tokyo and the maritime authorities have strict rules in place for commercial vessels that are equivalent to those applied to container ships. No regulations were in place, however, for a 20-metre pleasure craft making such lengthy passages so these had to be specifically adapted for Project Micamo. Months of dedicated engineering, careful calculations, stability booklet updates and more have underpinned construction of the hull.  Van der Valk Project Micamo will feature a four double cabins layout with an owners stateroom at midships, while the main deck will offer a more a more traditional central galley plan.  Project Micamo is to be powered by twin Volvo 1000hp with IPS pod drives for estimated top speeds up to 29 knots.

New Model: Cheoy Lee CLB65

Cheoy Lee presents the CLB65, a flybridge motor yacht which represents a new entry point into CL Yachts’ line-up, with luxurious features inspired by her larger sister-ships. With standard twin 800hp Volvo engines with IPS pod pro propulsion the CLB65 can hit an impressive top end of 27 knots and cruise at a very respectable 21 knots. CLB65 comes fitted with multiple helm stations, one on the main deck and on the flying bridge, so that owner-operators have a choice of staying protected or fully enjoying the marine environment around them. Additionally, two wing control stations to either side of the aft deck are incredibly helpful when getting in and out of marinas. The CLB65 features an aft galley on the main deck layout, the first Cheoy Lee yachts with such a layout. With a hinged door and flip-up glass, the main deck can be fully opened. It’s an exciting development that makes food service to the salon or the cockpit equally easy, and helps make CLB65 an excellent entertainment platform. The salon has multiple seating options, including a large U-shaped settee forward and to port that will be a focal point for conversation. The CLB65 was imagined with volume and comfort in mind, to that end she is built on the same hull as the larger CLB72, with the same beam but shorter. The benefits of this choice are obvious to anyone who steps aboard, particularly in the full-beam en-suite midships master stateroom with extraordinary volume and remarkable natural light, followed by forepeak en-suite VIP with island-queen berth. A spacious guest stateroom to port has twin berths that are perfect for guests. All staterooms on the lower deck have opening port lights to enhance ventilation. Throughout the interior which can be finished in either walnut or hickory oiled veneers and a neutral color palette mean the CLB65 is effortlessly cool and timelessly stylish. As for outdoor entertainment spaces, the CLB65 has an expansive flybridge with everything needed for alfresco cruising, including multiple settees, a barbecue and wet bar at amidships, with a hardtop to provide shade for the whole proceeding. A foredeck lounge with a sun-pad provides a further entertainment area, and one which will provide much welcome privacy when this motor yacht is moored stern-to.

The Cayman F580 is a bit rare cause it is one of the few flybridge motor yachts in the seventeen meters segment which offers three cabins and three bathrooms.  As quoted on the website the Cayman F580 is powered by twin Man 800hp with line shafts, but hull one was powered with twin Volvo 600hp engines and IPS propulsion which gave an interesting 32 knots performance.
