A few of the new Lazzara 76 motoryacht. We'll save the good photos for the review.
After taking a Cakewalk, I said hello to a few folks having lunch on the aftdeck of Sycara IV. Turned out to be the project manager of the build who remembered me from my trip to Manitowac prior to Sycara's launch. He intro'd the owner, who will remain nameless by request. I've done reviews on 3 of his boats to date, bet never had the privilege of meeting him. He's not happy with the current photographs of the Nobiskrug built Sycara V and said if new images were taken, he would supply them for a review on YF. It's not likely to happen because as I've had no contact with the yard after numerous attempts over the past 7 years. Frankly, I don't feel very obliged to provide any coverage for them.

Hey Chuck, watch your head!
A cool little center console...
...With neat features

And speaking of Cakewalk, let me drop a few more shots on you. Walked along side her on the dock and this thing is more a cruise ship than a yacht. She does have a great sheer line and commanding bow that just beats all.
"Cakewalk"!! *Faints* thanks Tom!!!
You're welcome, Ron.
Nice set of horns
I like the look of Mi Sueno
Couple of under-water toys
The Axcell Hybrid Cat from the side...
...And the bow
I love her.............
She is a beauty. even though I find she looks slightly bulky from one angle. However, all other angles she is smashing!
Is the review for Cakewalk going to include any video perhaps (not sure if time/other obligations permited it)? I would love to see a video tour of her.
Doubtful. We were not allowed to take any 'detail' pictures or use a voice recorder that would later be used for editorial only purposes. At best, our review of the boat will merely be a feature with glam shots.
During our walk-thru, I felt like a fish out of water; like being somewhere I didn't belong. Cakewalk isn't a yacht. It's a city unto itself. This isn't yachting. This is running a small government.
Even though YF didn't have daily coverage of FLIBS, we are pleased to offer those who could not make it a glimpse into some of the fine yachts that were present. Of course there is so much more to the show, like the Builders & Designers Tent, Electronics Tent, more boat builders and dealers than you can shake a stick at, the Convention Center location, and the Boat Babes (we'll have to refocus on those for next year).
We did hang around to the end of the show on Monday, and after taking in the harmoneous bellowing of ship's horns signaling the show's demise, we caught some of the yachts leaving, as it was high tide.
With Mi Sueno docked right next to the water taxi dock, I was able to get a few shots as she pulled out. It's good to have a wide angle lens.
A few more...
I'll finish up with these, but if anyone else has some, please do share. We do have many more photos, but we'll save those for the reviews that YF has lined up. Thanks for all the great comments. See you at the next show.
She just gets prettier every picture she's in...
Excuse the thread-jack, but does anyone have a marshmallow?
A new set of photos showing a Ferrari 458 Italia going up in flames is making the internet rounds today...
'At's 'a some-'a spicy glue!
She probably is one of my favorite new yachts, if not most favorite. Burger did an exceptional job with her, and she is absolutely beautiful. I love how they married modern technology with a traditional look and feel from the era, a beautiful yacht.
