The Miami International Boat Show was a huge success for the Atlantic Cruising Yachts team! It took place February 15-19 at the Miami Marine Stadium Park & Basin, with eager guests touring the 11 models that were on display, including both Fountaine Pajot catamarans and Jeanneau monohulls. The weather was wonderful, and the show had a great turnout, seeing crowds well into the thousands. We were even lucky enough to deliver yachts to some of our incredible customers during the show!
A Great Show for New Owners
We had an assortment of Fountaine Pajot catamarans on display including the MY37, MY44, Lucia 40, Saba 50, Saona 47, Ipanema 58. The catamarans were all very well-received by show-goers and we had a great time highlighting all of the features to guests. Atlantic Cruising Yachts even delivered one of these beautiful catamarans to new owners, Rich and Shelley! They purchased a gorgeous new Fountaine Pajot Lucia 40, Shelley Kay, and this new addition will be joining our Waypoints® program! She will be kept in the British Virgin Islands with BVI Yacht Charters.
For monohlls, Atlantic Cruising Yachts featured Sun Odyssey 44DS, Sun Odyssey 419, Sun Odyssey 440, Sun Odyssey 490, and Jeanneau 51. The Jeanneau brand has already had an incredible start to the year, with its Sun Odyssey models scooping up several awards including the 440 being awarded European Yacht of the Year at the Düsseldorf Boat Show and Boat of the Year by Cruising World magazine. That list grew even longer at the Miami Boat Show with the Sun Odyssey 490 awarded the Innovation Award for her walk-around deck, also found on the Sun Odyssey 440, setting a new standard in the yachting world.
In addition to that, Atlantic Cruising Yachts delivered Susan and Chip Fitzpatrick their new Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 490 at the show! It was a great celebration with the President of Jeanneau America, Nicolas Harvey, on hand to offer his congratulations with the rest of the ACY team. This was a particularly exciting delivery as this is hull #2 of this model! Susan and Chip will be adding their new yacht, Zephyr Deux, to the Cruise Annapolis fleet.
Thanks to everyone who came out to see us at the show! As always, a huge part of our success comes from our amazing staff and consultants! We look forward to continuing to help people achieve their dream of yacht ownership and we hope to see you at the Palm Beach International Boat Show in March!
