Marquis Yacht Unveils New 720 Portofino Edition at 2013 Miami International Boat Show

February 14, 2013 – Marquis Yacht, a global leader in ultra-premium quality yacht design and construction, will unveil a newly designed 72’ Motor Yacht at this year’s Miami International Boat Show.  This new yacht, christened the 720 Portofino-Edition, utilized our proven and very popular 720 Fly Bridge Motor Yacht as the starting point for this new vessel.

The saloon, galley, dining area and pilot house of the 720 Portofino-Edition reflect a new approach to allocating the interior space of a premium quality yacht destined to be used for relaxation and entertainment.  The single level floor plan is a highly functional feature that will be appreciated by all who come aboard.  People can walk from the swim platform to the cockpit through the saloon into the yacht’s galley and dining area and to the pilot house without navigating a single step. The 720 Portofino-Edition is the only yacht in its class with a single level floor plan.  This is a very unique attribute of the Portofino-Edition and reflects Marquis’ close attention to details often ignored by other yacht builders.

One of the many great features of the Portofino-Edition is the exquisite seating and dining area located on the yacht’s foredeck.  This area is designed to perform a variety of duties.  The seating is comfortable for lounging at dockside, at anchor or while underway and the handcrafted teak table makes this an enjoyable environment in which to have cocktails or share a meal with onboard guests.  The extra-wide side-deck, bulwark and rails on the Marquis 720 facilitate easy and safe access from the yacht’s cockpit to the new foredeck settee. This area is further enhanced with an LED lighting array that adds to the environment’s ambience.

The captain’s quarters on this new Marquis have also benefited from our design team’s creative thinking.  The Portofino-Edition’s Crew’s quarters is very unique and includes a very comfortable berth, private stall shower and an office work area.  This is a highly functional quarters for the captain, steward or ship’s mate.

The newly designed Marquis 720 Portofino-Edition will be on display and available for personal tours throughout the Miami International Boat Show.  The Marquis Yacht exhibit contains five new yachts and is located in the 4400 block of Collins Avenue, on the Intracoastal Waterway, Miami Beach, FL.
