The Palm Beach International Boat Show starts tomorrow: here is a selection of some of the great yachts on display to look out for.
Jetsetter, 39-metres, Dynamiq
The all-aluminium Dynamiq D4 Jetsetter – the yard’s debut yacht – comes with plenty of pedigree, including naval architecture from Vripack, Azure and Van Oossanen for the hull form, RINA classification, and an interior by Bannenberg & Rowell, which is characterised by a neutral palette with accents of burnt orange and royal blue. The yacht offers a top speed of 21 knots, a range of 3,000 miles and a draught of less than 1.75 metres.

Solandge, 85.1-metres, Lürssen
There is plenty of pedigree in this six-deck, steel-and-aluminium Lürssen, with Espen Øino exterior styling, and a rich, sumptuous Aileen Rodriguez interior that includes an impressive dining hall. There is a magnificent owner’s deck with a private Jacuzzi, salon and office, and the ‘Tree of Life’ sculpture that winds up the staircase is particularly special. She sleeps 16 who are looked after by 29 crew, with an impressive range of 6,000 nautical miles at 15 knots.
See her at berth PHE; Slip 300
Quinta Essentia, 55-metres, Admiral
Quinta Essentia is the biggest yacht produced by the yard in Marina di Carrara to date, and is the first launch in the Admiral E Motion 55 range. The yacht features a hybrid propulsion system that integrates traditional twin engines with two electric motors connected to variable-speed generators. Built for an experienced owner, the all-aluminium Quinta Essentia has an exterior styled by Dobroserdov Design and naval architecture by Vripack. The interior is the work of Michela Reverberi around a theme of the four elements: air, fire, earth and water, with the mysterious, ethereal fifth element, the Quinta Essentia, being the yacht herself.

Checkmate, 44.2-metres, Benetti
A lot of emphasis is put on the entertaining spaces aboard Checkmate, with sumptuous seating found throughout the spaces. From the well-regarded 145 range, she is the only 145 Benetti with this bridge deck configuration, which includes a larger skylounge that flows into the 270-degree either enclosed or alfresco dining space, depending on the weather. A large sundeck includes a Jacuzzi and a day head, as well as plenty of sunpads and relaxation spaces. She features zero-speed at anchor stabilizers to ensure a smooth ride for her 12 guests.

Aldabara, 51-metres, Codecasa
The 51-metre Aldabara comes to the market having only ever been used by her commissioning owner. The yacht was built at Italian yard Codecasa and features a very striking, masculine exterior designed in house with interiors from the board of Della Role Design. Oak and rosewood joinery is complemented by marble bathrooms for each of the six suites, accommodating 12 guests. A master suite forward enjoys its own private balcony.

Silver Lining, 50-metres, Christensen
The 50-metre high volume Silver Lining features an interior by Kimberly Graham, in traditional high-gloss black walnut. The yacht has a main-deck master suite and five guest cabins on the lower deck, and is seen as somewhat of a figurehead of the rebirth of US yard Christensen. There are some spacious outside deck spaces, with a hot-tub on the sundeck. The main deck salon has an intricate inlaid stone flooring leading to sofas and seating before the formal dining table. Twin MTU 12V 4000 Series deliver a top speed of 16.5 knots and a cruising speed of around 14.
