Palm Beach Boat Show 2021 Boat Debuts

The 35th-annual Palm Beach International Boat Show takes place this month, and as in prior years the show promises to unveil “some of the year’s most striking and luxurious new yachts”. From center consoles with big outboards to family cruisers and giant motor yachts, there are a slew of great new boats to see.

2021 Boat Debuts

Some of the boat builders we’re most excited to see make new model debuts this year include the following:

  • Sea Ray Sundancer 370 Outboard
    This is the first major show for this new outboard-powered boat from Sea Ray.
  • Aquila 70 Luxury Yacht Power Catamaran
    The brand new flagship from Aquila the 70 Luxury Power Catamaran is a breathtaking new catamaran that can top out at 27 knots yet still cover long ranges at slower speeds.
  • Vicem 50
    Vicem Yachts is slated to premiere their latest custom built entry, the Vicem 50 IPS Classic, at the 2021 Palm Beach Boat Show.
  • Horizon New FD75
    Making her U.S. debut alongside a selection of FD and Power Catamaran Series yachts comes the innovative, brand new Horizon FD75 model.
  • Beneteau Gran Turismo 32 Outboard
    An Ideal outboard-powered, entry-level express cruiser that offers plenty of comfortable space to accommodate guests while having an open feel thanks to a retractable hardtop.
  • Princess X95 Global Debut
    Making her global debut at PBIBS is the Princess ‘Superfly’ X95 – the latest yacht from the UK’s largest luxury yacht manufacturer.
  • Tiara 48 LS (first major boat show)
    Tiara is debuting their largest ever outboard-powered boat at this year’s PBIBS and we expect her to be rigged with the largest outboards currently in production as well (the Mercury 600 HP V12 engines).
  • Galeon 325 GTO
    Part of the new outboard collection recently released from Galeon Yachts, the new 325 GTO is making her much anticipated first major boat show appearance.
  • Sea Ray SLX 400 Outboard (with twin v12 600s)
    The Sea Ray SLX 400 is a new boat that we’ve covered before, however this year she will be rigged with the new 600 HP Mercury outboards that brings her capabilities up a notch.
  • Mercury 600-HP Outboards
    Speaking of which did we mention the Mercury Verado V12 600 HP engines yet? They’ll likely be on a few boats (that we’ve mentioned) plus others we haven’t – so keep an eye out for from onboard anything from the Vallhalla V-46 to the Sea Ray 400 SLX and  Tiara 48 LS. It will be great to see this motors get their first major exposure at a public boat show and many visitors are eager to get close up look at this modern marvels.
