best yachts of 2021

Several builders carried by SI Yachts recently won awards for excellence in their craft.

From newly designed layouts to cutting-edge technology, today's luxury yacht builders are in constant competition with each other to win your admiration and your boat purchase. A 50-foot boat built in 2021 may have the same style of accommodations as an 80-foot yacht just a few years ago. As new materials and construction techniques advance the abilities of shipyards, bringing amenities once only reserved for superyachts to owner/operator-sized vessels is the new norm.

Since 1964, SI Yachts has prided itself on offering only the best boat builders in the world. Industry leaders like Viking Yachts, Princess Yachts, and others continue to set trends in performance, livability, and reliability in boating. It's our passion to connect our customers with the very best yachts available that fit their lifestyle and cruising dreams.

We are excited to recognize several of our represented brands that recently received industry accolades for their latest creations. If we can help you find a new yacht, or sell your existing one, please give us a call today at 1-718-984-7676 or email at sales@siyachts.com. With offices in New York, Rhode Island, and now in Florida, there is no better company to help you create your on-water memories.

 

Absolute 60 FLY - Winner For "BEST LAYOUT"

The all-new Absolute 60 FLY recently took home the award for "Best Layout" in the 45' - 60' category at the World Yacht Trophies ceremony. More than half of the 60 FLY is outside and the team at Absolute Yachts did a tremendous job creating exterior spaces that would compliment the ocean environment around you. The cockpit can be used for al fresco dining or entertaining with cocktails at sunset, but it is unique due to its unfixed furniture. The modular furniture here allows the owner to furnish the area to their tastes, essentially creating the perfect outdoor entertainment space for their needs. An over-sized swim platform that can accommodate sun loungers extends this aft, outdoor patio.

The flybridge design on the 60 FLY also deserves comment. The boat has a beam over 16-feet and the flybridge takes full advantage by offering excellent space and versatility. Farthest aft is a terrace seating area that can serve as a sunbathing zone or simply to enjoy the view. The upper bridge also features a dining space, outdoor galley, and an upper helm station with complete controls.

Pardo Yachts E60 - Winner For "Best Innovation"

The new Pardo E60 is a new concept in long-range luxury cruising that combines an "eco-sustainable approach" in performance with chic decor, comfortable accommodations, and Italian style. Controlled speeds, low fuel consumption, quiet navigation, and relaxing living spaces all encourage an enjoyable time at sea. Thanks to its optimized hull shape, the E60 performs well in displacement at a speed of 10 to 12 knots and can easily plane at 25 knots.

Another example of innovation on the newest Pardo model to launch? Two extending lateral terraces, each measuring over 350 square feet each, easily unfold from the hull and create relaxation spaces right at the water's edge. Much of the Pardo E60 is customizable including the amenities on the flybridge and the lower deck guest accommodations.

Prestige Yachts 420 Flybridge - Winner For "Best Flybridge Up To 50 Feet"

prestige 420 Flybridge

While the 420 Flybridge from Prestige Yachts isn't exactly a brand new model, the shipyard just received the Best Of Boats Award for "Best Flybridge Up To 50 Feet" as last year's ceremonies were cancelled due to Covid. Still, the 420 FLY is worth recognizing because it provides an easy-to-maneuver entry level model that has many of the same amenities as its larger siblings. One such feature is the flybridge design and amenities, which for a boat that's only 42- feet in length, is expansive. Owners will enjoy the flybridge for its versatility as you and your guests sunbathe, dine with a view, or cruise from the upper helm.

The Prestige 420 Flybridge excels with its outdoor amenities, but it exceeds expectations indoors as well. After a long day enjoying the sun and ocean, the interior of the boat is inviting and relaxing. There are two staterooms for you and another couple, along with the choice of one head or two if you order the boat new. The decor and materials used inside are what you would expect from the Prestige shipyard - yacht chic and stylish.

Stay tuned to SI Yachts for the latest announcements regarding the best yacht brands, boat shows, new technology, and more. From taking your existing boat in on trade, to our industry-leading service team, to our north-to-south connection, there is no better company that offers a personalized level of customer service when buying or selling a yacht.
