As the autumn boat show season heads over to the US, we turn our attention to the 37th annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. With eight yachts in show, here, we showcase our two yachts for charter that will be attending.

The Burgess team of experienced brokers will be on hand throughout the show and will be welcoming clients on the Bahia Mar Facedock at booth F624 for viewings.

PASSION continues to be a popular charter yacht thanks to her Dvorine Associates-designed  casual, yet sophisticated interior which elegantly combines luxury living with fun for all the family. A grand circular staircase connects the main saloon to the upper deck, which was designed for entertainment with a games table, full service bar, video arcade games, air hockey table, karaoke machine, and a state-of-the-art home movie theatre. PASSION accommodates 12 guests in six cabins including a full beam owner’s suite with private study on the main deck. It is located adjacent to one of the yacht’s two VIP cabins, while the remaining cabins can be found on the lower level. They include a full beam VIP cabin, a double, and two twin cabins. Completing the lower level is a spacious gym and adjoining steam room.
