Gravitas | Length: 171'
One of the finest classic Feadship-built yachts to date, the exceptional 52.12m (171') Gravitas was custom-built in 1995 by an experienced Feadship owner and has since benefited from a complete new elegant interior. She accommodates 16 guests in 8 staterooms - 5 double staterooms and 3 twin-bedded staterooms. The 4-room master suite is worthy of particular attention with its very own separate sitting room (which converts to two twin beds), office and breakfast bar.

Star | Length: 138'
Star is the fifth motor yacht built by Kingship in collaboration with Dutch Naval Architects Vripack International.

Her interior is elegant yet contemporary and, after a 2014 refit, features new decor throughout, including a stylish mix of Italian furnishings and eye-catching Oriental art. Her exterior spaces are also well thought out and comprises a bridge deck with sky lounge opening onto an uncovered aft deck and a partially covered sun deck with Jacuzzi, bar and barbecue. These large deck areas are perfect for alfresco dining and lounging.

Double Down | Length: 107'
Double Down is one of the most luxurious and customized Broward has ever built. In 2009, having been run less than 1,000 hours, she was purchased by her second and current owner and underwent a complete and extensive multi-million dollar interior and exterior refit. The refit included a hull/cockpit extension, a reconfiguration of the aft and fly bridge decks as well as a top-to-bottom interior refit, complete with state of the art electronics, appliances, audio/video and navigation equipment. In 2013, she was further upgraded with the addition of a sewage treatment plant, a smokeless engine exhaust conversion and larger stabilizer fins with full electronic controls. Her fuel economy, cruising stability, and overall amenities are second to none, making her a very rare find for the seasoned boat owner as well as the newcomer looking for a turnkey opportunity.
