2020 Ocean Alexander 90R

The yacht’s interior furnishings, woods (oak with ebony and ­walnut accents), Cambria quartz stonework, soft goods and the other décor that shares space with this abundant glazing are all low-profile and neutral in hue, providing a backdrop that is elegant yet carefully designed to complement the windows rather than distract from them.

Based on feedback from Maritimo dealers—who loved the X60 but felt there was a market for something smaller—the X50 is at first glance a more compact version of its bigger sister and retains much of the same layout and styling, including the massive beach club door.

2020 Dyna 68

The Dyna 68 on display at the Palm Beach show had the skylounge layout—a good call for the Florida market, since it adds another level of air-conditioned comfort.

In order to accomplish this, the builder asked naval architect Howard Apollonio, who designed the Bravo 72’s original hull, to come back to the drafting table. The shipyard also hired composites engineering specialist firm Gurit to carry out…
