The 2019 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS), the 60th edition of the famed event, sailed off into the sunset “majestically” as it crowned Majesty 140 as Best Of Show.
The 140-foot long Majesty 140 superyacht is equipped with a spacious beachfront deck with balconies, a main living room finished with the finest Italian wood and leather, and plenty of space for entertaining including a large TV screen and state-of-the-art sound equipment. Its extensive glass side windows allow plenty of sunlight inside and offer guests stunning panoramic views of the seascape around.
The coveted prize is a highlight in the resume of all its present and previous recipients. It is awarded to the vessel that best combines performance, design, technology and architecture. Majesty 140 was selected by a distinguished and independent panel of judges that included: Ryan Hunter-Reay, American race car driver; Jason Wenig, owner of The Creative Workshop; Francoise Bezzola, Global CMO for Ulysse Nardin; and Ralph Choeff, Principal at Choeff Levy Fischman, P.A.
“We are incredibly honored that our Majesty 140 was recognized as the Best of Show winner at the biggest in-water boat show in the world,” said Greg Terraglio, Managing Partner, Majesty Yachts USA. “Rich with luxurious amenities and exceptional finishes, the commissioned Majesty 140 is unparalleled to any other yacht in the market and we are pleased to show her off throughout the rest of the Fort Lauderdale show.”
Modeled after NBC Sports’ North American International Auto Show Special, FLIBS and the Best of Show Awards will be featured in its own special program showcasing the latest vessels, innovative design, and performance reviews, set to air on Dec. 15, 2019 on NBC Sports Network.
“Every year, our international portfolio expands reeling in new countries into the show,” said Andrew Doole, President of Informa Markets U.S. Boat Shows. “We are thrilled to have Majesty Yachts, a first-time exhibitor from Dubai, take home the trophy for their impeccable Majesty 140 and hope guests enjoy her beauty while visiting FLIBS.”
Majesty Yachts also debuted their Majesty 100 in the U.S., which sold for $9.9 million at this year’s Show.
