This Year’s Boating Scene: It’s Looking up!
At the US winter shows, the boating industry puts its best foot forward. Between Miami and Palm Beach, the region hosts no fewer than five major boat shows. The Yacht & Brokerage Show on Miami Beach and the Miami International Boat Show, and related Strictly Sail, run February 14 to 18. These three shows mark the debut of dozens of new models and showcase hundreds of craft, from small center consoles to megayachts.
Miami 2013: Deep Impact 330LS
A new addition to Deep Impact’s line of tenders and powerboats, the first 330LS was finished just in time to make her Fort Lauderdale debut and will reappear in Miami this year. For this line, LS stands for Luxury Seating, and when you look at the plans you can see why.
Tenders: Deep Impact
The 399 center console has everything a megayacht might require, including the power to tow an armada of water toys, huge storage spaces and the kind of attributes even a master angler would appreciate. Other great features include integrated transom fender lockers, a hideaway transom swim ladder, a side-boarding door, a fully air-conditioned head and, of course, a great sound system.
