Several new yachts make their debut in 2019 from Prestige, Absolute, Viking, and HCB Center-Consoles.

2018 was a successful year for SI Yachts and our boat manufacturer partners as we saw the debut of many exciting new models including the HCB 65 Estrella (dubbed the world's largest luxury center-console yacht), the new second-generation Viking 58 Convertible, and the Prestige 590 Flybridge. Several major awards were also won including the 2018 Boat of the Year Award  which went to the Absolute Navetta 73 recognized as the  best "Motor Boat Open or Flybridge over 18 meters". As demand for new innovations grows in the boating industry, our new yacht brands are at the forefront of the latest in technology, construction techniques, components, and style.

Absolute will debut two exciting new models in 2019 - the Navetta 48 and the 62 Flybridge. Both yachts offer some unique changes for the Absolute brand, yet with classic Italian style and features. Absolute prides itself on offering "space and light" which both models succeed in fulfilling with their spacious salons and hull windows for more sunshine into the lower deck cabins.

"I was on the Navetta 48 at the Absolute dealer meeting in Italy," said SI Yachts owner Frank Bongiorno in another recent article about the Navetta 48. "This is a huge 48-foot boat. Very spacious, lots of room, and priced extremely competitively." Also read about the charm of the Absolute 62 Flybridge here.

New yachts being introduced for the 2019 model year include the stunning 590 Flybridge, 520S, and 460S Express Yachts. SI Yachts has more available new and pre-owned Prestige Yachts that any other firm.

If you thought 2018 was exciting for Viking, just wait for the Viking VIP Event and the Miami Yacht Show. The 2nd generation 58 Convertible made quite the headlines in Fort Lauderdale recently. The first 58 Convertible sold over a hundred vessels back in the 90's and is expected to be just as popular the second time around with the advancements in construction and performance.

Attendees of the Viking VIP Event will be the first to see the all new 38 Billfish, the successor to the popular 37 Billfish, and the brand-new 68 Convertible. For those that can't make the event, both models will be at the Miami Yacht Show in February.

HCB Yachts stunned everyone this year with the launch of the world's largest luxury center-console, the 65 Estrella. Powered with 5 7-Marine outboard engines, the 65 Estrella is bigger and faster than most sportfishermen and when decked out with the teak package can be an excellent large motor yacht tender option.

Owners also love the Crucero Experience that HCB provides which gives new owners an incredible hands-on experience with the production of their new yacht. Each vessel is customized exactly how the new owner would like it to be from the power, accessories, electronics, and all other final details.
