On Day Two of the 2022 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show Team Soundings found more new models and interesting products. Here is a selection of what debuted at the show or was just plain cool.

Vicem 65 Classic Flybridge

The Vicem 65 Classic Flybridge had its world premiere at FLIBS. Hull number one was made from fiberglass, although the boat will also be available in cold-molded construction.

The 65 is powered by twin Volvo Penta 725-hp engines. She can be equipped with a traditional shaft-drive propulsion system or with Volvo's IPS pod drives. With either choice, WOT is 28 knots and cruise is 23 knots. Down below there is a master stateroom with an en suite head, plus two cabins that share a head. 

Vicem 55 Classic Flybridge

The Turkish builder also presented the latest iteration of its 55 Classic Flybridge, which is built on the 55 Classic Sedan model. Standard engines are twin Volvo Penta IPS 700s. Top speed is 26 knots and cruise is 20 knots. 

The 55 has a large flybridge built for entertaining. Like many Vicems, teak is used to great advantage throughout the boat, particularly throughout the interior, where the wood is beautifully varnished. Belowdecks are two staterooms and two private en suite heads. 

Hacker-Craft x Ingenity 27 Special Sport

Hacker-Craft and Ingenity Electric debuted the first Hacker-Craft for the boatbuilder's new electric series. The 27 Special Sport uses Ingenity's integrated drive package with 126kWh of battery capacity. 

The 27 can recharge as quickly as 1.5 hours on a high-capacity DC Fast Charger. With a 2- to 3-hour runtime, the 27 has a top speed of 30 knots and a cruise of 18 knots. 

The builder says the 27 Special Sport is the perfect boat for lake use or as a yacht tender.

Everglades 285cc

The 285CC comes to FLIBS after making waves at the Newport International Show in Newport earlier this year; there it won the show award for best new powerboat under 30 feet. 

Designed for both coastal and offshore adventures, the 285cc's bow features upholstered lounges with teak accents and a casting deck that converts to a sun pad.

The helm station has a single Garmin GPSMAP 8616xsv chartplotter. Dual displays are an option. The 285 cc has a reversible helm/mezzanine seat that can face forward or aft.

The LOA is 28-feet, 4-inches. Notable features include a fiberglass hardtop and a good-size head compartment. She is powered by twin Yamaha 300-hp outboards. Yamaha's Helm Master EX with DES and autopilot, plus Joystick, are available.

Solace 30 HCS

The Solace HCS is a hybrid center console, as it's made for day cruising with the family and for fishing, in both skinny water and offshore. The 30-footer features a twin-step ventilated hull with tracking chine rails. Power options include twin Mercury 300s, twin 400s or twin 450-hp Mercury Racing outboards. Mercury's JPO Joystick with autopilot is optional.

For fishermen, she features two 30-gallon livewells, two in-floor, 35-gallon fish boxes and vertical rod and gaff storage in the 6-foot, 2-inch-tall head compartment. An upper station is optional as are 18-foot carbon fiber GEMLux Deluxe Outriggers. For those who want to just lounge, she has ample seating in the bow and cockpit.

The Solace 30 HCS as outfitted at FLIBS is exclusively priced at $644,949..

Riviera 4600 Sport Yacht Platinum Edition

The 4600 Sport Yacht Platinum Edition is a 50-footer with a spacious cockpit, a large salon, a full-beam master suite and two additional staterooms. Standard engines are twin Volvo Penta D6-IPS650s. Optional power comes from twin Volvo Penta D8-IPS800s. 

Riviera 465 SUV

The Riviera 465 SUV is a single-level 52-footer with a 15-foot beam that provides ample space for entertaining guests, family activities and water sports. Belowdecks is a forward master stateroom and two guest cabins, with accommodations for six people. Standard engines are twin Volvo Penta D8 IPS 800s. 

Sunseeker 88 Yacht

On the higher end of the spectrum, the Sunseeker 88 has a big flybridge, an infinity pool, a full galley and a dining area with table for eight. She boasts up to five cabins, including a master stateroom and VIP cabin. Standard power comes from twin MTU 10v 2000s. Optional power comes from twin MTU 12v 2000s. WOT is 28 knots.

Sunseeker 90 Ocean

Even bigger than the 88, the brand-new Sunseeker 90 Ocean features a spacious deck or "beach club" with a barbecue, a rain shower and sunbeds. The garage has room to stow a tender. 

The flybridge has a large U-shaped couch, a wet bar, a retractable canopy, ample seating and a dining area. The salon has floor-to-ceiling windows. The 90 accommodates up to 10 guests and four crew.
