Black Beauty from the Palm Beach Boat Show

Thanks to our Twitter pal Rich Lazzara at Lazzara Yachts, we can bring you some awesome images from the 23rd Annual Palm Beach Boat Show, which runs March 27-30. Featuring more than $350 million worth of boats, superyachts and accessories from every major marine manufacturer, the event includes more than 1,000 boats, covering everything from inflatables to superyachts.


Rich was kind enough to post some photos [above] of this striking black Midnight Express Open 37. Dubbed Midnight Madness, it's well named, since it boasts FIVE (yes 5) 350hp Mercury Verado outboards on the transom, for a total of 1750hp! Top speed from the advanced, stepped hull is said to be about 95mph, but that's pretty fast for a big 37' boat with a full 11' beam.


The show encompasses more than 1 million sq. ft. of exhibit space on land and in water throughout three distinct venues. Two of the venues, the Palm Beach County Convention Center and the Intracoastal Waterway are connected by a convenient transportation network. The third, Rybovich Marina, is an exclusive showing of superyachts with access by the water taxi, which is docked next to the Yachts International Pavilion.

As an aside, in the coming weeks I'll have to show you an incredible project I came across on Rich Lazzara's blog - it's their ultra-modern floating showroom, built on a 40' x 90' barge. You'll have to see it to believe it...
