Princess Yachts X95

Known for their extravagant luxury, the new Princess X-95 Super Flybridge is going to reset the yachting landscape. Yachts caliber are meant for two things: cruising and entertaining. The flybridge on the X-95 is nothing short of spectacular and will stretch almost the entire length of the boat. Aft on the flybridge is a massive sunpad that could easily fit 5 or 6 sunbathers along with a U-shaped couch for socializing. There are two additional couches and multiple loveseats along with a circular dining table large enough to fit 8 people comfortably. The interior of the Pilothouse is equally as nice and includes an air-conditioned, enclosed space to sit with the captain or simply take a break from the sunshine.

On the main deck, the Princess X-95 offers incredible views through windows that stretch the height of the room. Multiple relaxation and social zones make up the salon which has the space of a 120-foot motor yacht. Guests will enjoy 3 luxurious staterooms including the forward VIP suite that has it’s own private bathroom. The master suite stretches the entire beam of the yacht and features a large sitting area, private two-person bathroom, and storage capacity for longer adventures.

Silent Yachts 80 Solar-Powered Catamaran

The future is now for going green when boating. Silent Yachts new 80 Power Catamaran is the first and only ocean-going production catamaran that is fully solar sustainable and powered by solar energy. While owners do have the option of including diesel engines as a back-up, the entire boat and the generator can be run from the large solar panels on the hardtops.

Imagine a cruising experience without the vibrations and noise from the engines and generator as well as the exhaust. The Silent Yachts 80 is just that – silent. The wide beam of the power catamaran also offers incredible living spaces. The aft cockpit and bow offer multiple sitting and dining areas. The interior is reminiscent of a mansion of South Beach with spectacular windows, European-style accents, and all of the comforts needed for extended cruising voyages.

Hatteras GT65 Carolina

Known for building some of the strongest boats in the world to tame the waters off the Atlantic coast, the Hatteras GT65 Carolina is no exception to the tradition. With sleek lines and an expected speed of well over 40 knots, this is one battle-wagon you will not want to miss when it debuts in November at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

Hatteras engineers will infuse the stringer system to the hull making one single, large part. This not only reduces weight, but it makes the hull incredibly strong and will be the first of it’s kind in the industry. The 4-stateroom, 3-Head layout is popular with tournament anglers and the 194 square foot cockpit is the largest in its class.

Valhalla Boatworks V-41

Viking Yachts are legendary in the world of sportfishing boats, but the one question asked for years has been, “When is Viking going to make a center-console?” Just announced at the Miami Boat Show, the new Valhalla Boatworks line will debut with three models including the flagship V-41. This is a new breed of center-console yachts thanks to Viking’s Research and Design Team along with Michael Peters Yacht Design. The patented twin steps and tunnel hull shape will not only improve performance, but also planning time and fuel efficiency.

The Valhalla V-41 will offer the option to choose your power between triple or quad engine configurations between 350 and 425 horsepower. Expect all the bells and whistles from a fishing standpoint including Seakeeper Gyro, in-deck fish boxes, a raised transom live-well, and lots of rod and tackle storage.

Nimbus Boats Weekender 11

When the Nimbus Weekender 9 first launched last year, anyone that climbed aboard the Swedish-built boat knew it was something special. The Nimbus W-9 went on to be awarded the 2019 Powerboat of the Year at the Dusseldorf Boat Show. Shortly after, the Nimbus team announced an additional line of their popular WTC series, highlighted by the new Weekender 11.

The Nimbus W11 can be offered with either Volvo Penta V8 inboards or Mercury Verado outboards up to 400 Horsepower. Capable of exceeding 40 knots and with the interior accommodations for 4 people, the Nimbus W11 will make a great day boat or overnight cruiser.

The GT-59 is unmistakably a Hatteras with her bow flare and is sure to excite tournament fish-heads once they step on board.

Cabo Yachts 41 Express

When Cabo Yachts went out of production several years ago, everyone thought this would be the end of the legendary sportfishing brand. After several good years of sales by parent company Hatteras Yachts, the new Cabo 41 will make its world debut at the Miami Boat Show in 2019. The sporty performance of the twin Volvo D11 635 engines will get you to the gulf stream fast and with an efficient fuel burn.

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Bombardier Business Aircraft. All opinions are 100% mine.

Bombardier’s highly anticipated Global 7500 aircraft is a new class of business jet that allows both productivity and comfort in the air. The Global 7500 carries the unique title of being the largest and longest-ranged business jet in the world. If you need to fly nonstop from New York to Hong Kong, this is the only purpose-built business jet that can take you there.

Passengers can spend long-distance flights with excellent amenities and plenty of elbow room. The Global 7500 includes four customizable separate suites that accommodate up to nineteen passengers; this is tailored luxury at its finest. Whether you want to reign supreme in hospitality, conduct a business meeting in-flight, or have a power lunch, you can do it here.

Business has varied travel needs that are sometimes at odds. There are clients who expect to be impressed and teammates who want to be kept comfortable and productive. But at the same time, there are also practical issues such as storing luggage, utensils, and equipment both safely and out of sight. The Global 7500 has the cabin space, storage, and amenities to keep up with all of these competing needs. Here are some of the jet’s standout features.

The Nuage Seat

The Nuage seat architecture is the first new seat to be developed for business aviation in three decades. It took nearly 7 years to complete, and is guaranteed to be the best seat in the house. Its unique ergonomic design brings maximum comfort for passengers on long flights. It features a unique deep recline position, making it perfect for power naps or relaxation. The floating base makes it easy to smoothly position and rotate the seat to find a comfortable position. Also, the Nuage seat has a tilting headrest that adjusts to each passenger’s unique height for optimal support.

A Naturally Illuminated Interior

Large, evenly spaced windows let in plenty of sunlight when you rise above the clouds. Aside from the awesome view, the beauty of natural light will fill your cabin, creating a naturally lit atmosphere that is conducive to higher workplace productivity.

The Right Environment

On a commercial plane, at least 50% of the cabin air is recycled, while the rest is taken from the outside. Though this air is filtered, the “stuffy” feeling is typical of the standard commercial n-flight experience. However, the Global 7500 uses an advanced air management system that sends 100% fresh air into the cabin in-flight. In addition, the turbo heat and cool feature in this system enables the cabin to reach the desired temperature in minutes.

Optimized Cabin Pressurization

The Global 7500 aircraft’s optimized cabin pressurization system can eliminate ear pressure and popping after takeoff by reducing the pressure fluctuations felt when changing altitudes. This is achieved by providing a low-altitude environment in the cabin during the flight.

Entertainment

Of the many possible options available, that comes standard, is a state-of-the-art media center with a high-speed fiber optic backbone. Whether you need to brief your team with a presentation or catch the game before you land, this private theater, which can be customized with a 40-in 4K display and Hi-Fi speakers, can immerse its audience in crystal clear sound and resolution.

Wings & Speed

Delivering an incredibly smooth ride, the wings are precision-engineered to allow the greatest possible flexibility in flight. The flex provided by the wings’ revolutionary design acts like a car’s shocks, absorbing the forces that normally make for a rougher flight.

The Global 7500 is currently unmatched in its range. It has a 7,700 nautical mile range, which means it can be in flight for 14-15 hours nonstop. It also has a top speed of Mach 0.925.

Multiple Living Spaces

The Global 7500 offers tailored luxury. Owners can design their cabins to personalize their private flying experience with various floor plans and add-ons.

  • The Club Suite: Call it the “business casual” of the jet’s living quarters, it has large windows that let in plenty of light, Nuage seats, tables, and optional furniture that can easily be customized and altered to suit casual conversations or a small business meeting.
  • The Conference Suite: Able to seat six people, this is a great place to dine, relax, and connect. As its name suggests, you can also hold conferences here when it’s not being used as a dining room.
  • The Kitchen: Designed by the experts who know what works in the air, this full kitchen is equipped with everything the crew needs to make countless decadent meals for up to 19 passengers.
  • The Master Suite: Call it your home away from home, the available master suite can come with personal bed, shower, and optional furniture. Make it as simple or luxurious as you want it to be. For long flights, it’s the perfect place to recharge before landing.
  • Crew Suite: This separate space allows the crew to work in freedom and comfort, which gives both passengers and crew privacy, especially on long flights.
Touch Cabin Management System

Modernity meets ingenuity with the Global 7500 aircraft’s “Nice Touch Cabin Management System” (CMS). This system enables passengers to control various elements in the cabin with an OLED touch dial.

Suite Controllers

Swiping your hand over a discrete sensor causes a circular suite controller to rise from its hidden recess. From this panel, passengers can control the lighting, temperature, and sound in the cabin.

You don’t need to be near a suite controller to make the adjustments, either. When you download the Nice Touch App, you can conveniently change the lights, temperature, or pick a movie through your mobile device.

Final Thoughts

The brainchild of years of passion and perfectionism, The Global 7500 is a Bombardier Business Aircraft that offers a perfect blend of technology, convenience, and luxury. If you’re a passenger who wants to impress your guests and be in complete control in-flight, the Global 7500 is well worth a look.

Whether the summer weather has you craving a commute with the top down or you’re finally ready to indulge in your need for speed, there are plenty of sports cars that are guaranteed to make 2018 the best year yet. No matter your budget or taste, there’s something for every driver. Check out these top 10 contenders:

2018 Chevy Corvette

Available in a variety of models to suit everyone, the 2018 Chevy Corvette classic starts at just over $55,000 and has a horsepower option up to 755. It can get an impressive 25 mpg on the highway and has a moderate curb weight of around 3,500 for optimal handling and speed.

Ford Mustang

Another classic also tops the list, but with a surprisingly low MSRP starting at just over $25,000. That’s one of the perks when choosing one of the most popular sports cars on the market. Boasting up to 32 mpg on the highway along with plenty of luxurious amenity options, you won’t know if you’re driving a sports car or a luxe vehicle (It’s both!).

Toyota 86

Toyota offers a relative newcomer to the lineup along with a reasonable MSRP starting at around $26,000. With up to 206 horsepower, it packs plenty of power while also offering Toyota’s famed reliability. A low curb weight of well under 3,000 pounds makes it easy to maneuver, and you even get up to 32 highway mpg.

Audi TT

Looking for even more sleekness and touches of luxury? Opt for this Audi with an MSRP starting at around $43,000. It comes with 220 horsepower and surprisingly impressive 30 mpg on the highway. You’ll have all eyes on you with this model, but on the inside it feels like the moving studio you deserve.

Audi R8

Audi quickly climbed the ranks to become one of the most desired sports cars available. However, this option starts at $138,000, so it’s an investment only for the most serious of sports cars lovers. With a whopping 610 horsepower, it’s designed to perform—but still garners 25 mpg on the highway.

BMW M3

Beemer lovers rejoice with this moderately-priced option that starts at around $66,000. You’ll enjoy up to 453 horsepower and circa 25 highway mpg. The 3.0 L 6-cylinder engine gives you the German performance you crave and the more moderately priced models come in manual—giving you full control.

Porsche 718 Boxster

Available starting at under $60,000, this showstopper comes with up to 365 horsepower. The moderate weight of around 3,000 pounds gives it both the dependency and maneuverability you want, and with nearly 30 highway mpg you can still consider this a commuter vehicle.

Nissan 370Z

Nissan’s latest addition to its sports car lineup checks in at a reasonable starting price of $29,990. The 3.7 Liter V6 engine comes standard with the six-speed manual transmission version of the car with the SynchroRev Match System that adjusts the throttle for a smoother shift. The 370 Z tops out at 332 horsepower and sports a highway mpg of 26 mpg. Additionally, the 370Z contains sports tuned suspension that minimizes unnatural body movements, making traversing around windy roads less daunting.

Dodge Viper

Most people consider a Viper well out of their budget, but Dodge has worked a miracle and this highly desirable option now starts at around $87,000. You’ll have all eyes on you as you zip around town with 645 horsepower. The highway miles hover around 19 mpg, so you’ll likely want to keep this baby garaged except for special occasions that warrant whipping out the 8.4 L V10 engine.

Lexus LC

Lexus is normally known for its luxury sedans, but the LC will make you see this brand in a different light. It still blends Lexus’ signature upgrades—making this model start at $92,000. However, with up to 471 horsepower and 35 highway mpg, it’s a serious contender. It has a sizable curb weight for a sports car at over 4,000, but that’s what gives it the dependable drive many seek out.

With so many sports cars available, it can be tough to narrow down the options. Test driving them all is sure to be a thrill-packed way to spend the weekend.
