Face Off: Azimut 64 Fly Vs. Sea Ray L650 Fly

Face Off: Azimut 64 Fly Vs. Sea Ray L650 Fly

April 8, 2019 12:23 pm

These stylish flybridge yachts always rank high on the pre-owned market., azimut 64 fly [2011 – current].

“Not only is the yacht remarkably well-balanced underway, and pretty damn quick, but the marriage of the Cats’ considerable torque to a pair of perfectly pitched propellers produce a boat with quite extraordinary acceleration and poise, right through the rev range.”

— Power and Motoryacht

“Beauty, powerful engines, cruising elegance, stability at anchor and the option to choose between two layouts for the saloon… there are numerous excellent reasons that can lead to choosing the Azimut 64. These distinctive elements place the 64 at the top of its category.”

— TopSpeed.com

“ The Azimut 64 Flybridge took Italian styling and luxury to the next level when she was introduced in 2011″

— Motorboating and Sailing (UK)

SEA RAY L650 [2015 – CURRENT]

“The L650 Fly was intended to be the “best of the best” of what Sea Ray is capable of. Make no mistake, Sea Ray management is aiming at the top boats in class in terms of styling, quality, and market appeal”

— BoatTest.com

“What you get with the Sea Ray L650 is a boat with a thoughtful layout, a sturdy build, and surprisingly sporty performance. She will definitely compete with the best of them in her class.”

“Painstakingly laid out to anticipate your needs, the L650 is both high art and highly capable. Form and function complement each other as if they’ve been dancing together forever.”

“The new L650 is a powerful, high-speed, solid performer with an intelligent array of luxury features.”

Azimut 64 Fly | Powerboat Guide Review

A successor to the top-selling Azimut 62 Flybridge , the Azimut 64 Flybridge took Italian styling and luxury to the next level when she was introduced in 2011. The flybridge and cockpit are among the largest in this class, and the squarish bow protects the deck and sun pad from sea-spray while cruising. On the main deck, the salon is flooded with natural light through large windows. A posh U-shaped sofa to port in the salon seats six, and a long cabinet to starboard houses an entertainment center. Two steps separate the salon from the galley and dining areas. Unlike earlier Azimut yachts, the galley is completely open to the dinette and salon. The helm has been moved from a central position to starboard which permits an atrium on the port side while also allowing more light down into the living area. There are three staterooms and three heads below. The full-beam master is amidships and features an offset queen bed, two-seat dinette, and panoramic views from port and starboard hull windows. The VIP stateroom has an island bed, and the second guest stateroom has two single beds convertible to a queen. Two-person crew quarters are aft. Caterpillar 1150hp C18 diesels cruise at 26–28 knots (30+ knots top).

Sea Ray L650 Fly | Powerboat Guide Review

A modern flybridge yacht of exceptional beauty and sophistication, the Sea Ray L650 Fly was designed to compete against the top-tier European brands in both luxury and performance. Sea Ray offers this model in two versions: The L650 Fly with flybridge, or the L650 with an electrically operated sunroof instead. The upper-level layout consists of facing settees to port and starboard as you enter, with a massive galley forward to port and a comfortable dinette to starboard, just behind the lower helm. There are four staterooms and three heads on the lower level—the VIP stateroom is forward, guest cabins are to port and starboard, and an opulent full-beam master with queen bed, his and hers sinks, and vertical hull windows is amidships. Crew quarters are aft, and a very useful day head is accessed from the swim platform. Above, there are two dining areas on the huge flybridge and the chaise loungers forward of the helm convert to sun pads. Additional features include a hydraulic swim platform, hardwood salon flooring, recessed foredeck seating with table, bow/stern thrusters, separate washer and dryer units, and gyro stabilizers. Cruise in the mid-20s with Cat 1150hp C18 engines (30+ knots top).

Azimut Fly 53 Review (2022 Edition)

Azimut’s new 53 is an important yacht, an entry-level model that might be a buyer’s first taste of this Italian builder, it also goes head to head with some notable rivals

Azimut Fly 53 Review (2022 Edition) image 1

Azimut and designer Alberto Mancini have been creating a quiet revolution with a new generation of flybridge designs that are bold and elegant in equal measure while delivering some beguiling interior luxury, as spectacularly demonstrated on the new 37m Grande Trideck flagship. Can they pull off the same mix of wonders on a 50-footer?

Performance & Handling

Azimut 53 Fly exterior

Around the Marina

The 53 Fly is only available with Volvo Penta's IPS950 and that, of course, means joystick control. The boat responds well to inputs from the joystick even if you do feel the boat's height with the hard top fitted as it rolls a touch during sideways manoeuvres. The handling of the boat isn't an issue it's the view from the helms that makes life a little tricky.

You can't see the aft end of the boat from the flybridge and it's hard to communicate with the crew from the lower helm so it would make sense to, at the very least, add some cameras around the boat so you can use the MFDs to check position or tick the optional cockpit docking station for a better view aft. If you moor with the stern to the dock on a regular basis I would say this is a must-have. 

Moving around the boat is easy enough and there's a healthy amount of deck storage for fenders and lines but the lack of a side door into the saloon means crewing isn't as easy as it could be. 

Azimut 53 Fly running

The challenge with only providing one engine option is that it has to suit the boat perfectly and, thankfully, the D11 725hp motors of the IPS950 installation are a great match to the 53's refined, soft-riding hull shape. We topped out at a comfortable 31 knots (even touching 34 knots at one point with a bit of Solent tide beneath us) and cruised at 26 knots where the range is in the region of 300nm. The fuel burn curve is pretty flat once up to planing speeds, though, so even if you want to get a bit of a lick on the range doesn't drop too sharply. 

The handling is light but has a good amount of feel and the boat turns nicely for a weighty flybridge cruiser. The best handling boat I've driven in this category is the shaft-drive Princess F55 and though the Azimut may not be quite as sharp in the turns or feel quite as well balanced it's not far off. It's very quiet, too. IPS helps with this but the well-engineered engine room and its layers of sound insulation improve the sound levels even more. 

We didn't have much chop to play with during the test but on a busy day in the Solent, the wash from other craft did little to put the Azimut off its stride. The boat feels solid through the waves with no bangs, squeaks or rattles emanating from the hull or interior. It's an easy boat to drive at all speeds and, from the comfort of the upper helm especially, feels like a boat you could comfortably cover some decent ground on.

Design & Build

azimut 53

Yes, style is subjective, but can anyone argue against the idea that this Azimut 53 is one of the most beautiful 50ft flys ever made? Mancini’s hand is obvious from the angular bow and clean sharp lines that run aft, metallic topsides and black style lines stretching the yacht out further, delivering an impressive sleekness. Of course, the demands of the market mean that an unsightly hard top is never too far away and even the aesthetically conscious Azimut has had to concede. If it were my boat, I'd be opting for the canvas bimini every day of the week. 

Keeping the profile low while delivering good interior volume is incredibly hard to do at this length. And deliver it they have. A quick look at the layout suggests all the right component parts are held within this sleek yacht. Three cabins, including a full-beam owner’s stateroom, are found below decks with an open, spacious saloon above, the galley aft design connecting the interior to the aft deck while also delivering a very practical galley that runs across the beam.

But then, nothing short of excellent would cut it in a market that includes several award-winning yachts from the likes of Absolute, Sunseeker, Princess and Ferretti.   

Form and Function

Azimut is, it seems, not only aware of the competition but also how much use yachts of this size get put to by their owner-operators. The interior reflects the serious cruising requirements of a 16m flybridge with masses of stowage and easy-going nature that you just know will be a joy to use. 

This being an Azimut, the practicalities of yachting life run alongside plenty of style. The new interiors we saw on the Grande Tri-Deck and 68 find a subtle home here, with dreamy, pastel soft furnishings, not a hard edge to be found and a choice of clean cool finishes or warmer oak cabinetry, detailed with copper inlays.

Azimut 53 Fly exterior

Interior Accommodation

azimut 53 interior

The 53’s interior design is wonderfully relaxing, there are marshmallows less sumptuous than the saloon’s inviting facing sofas. To the main port seating, an electric pedestal allows the dining table to drop into an occasion berth, a useful feature on a cruising yacht. 

We are now so used to builders working in massive glass sections that they can almost be overlooked, as opposed to gratefully looked through. Here, the saloon guests will enjoy unbroken views across the water from single-piece side screens, or perhaps watch the pop-up TV to starboard. 

That said, the low window line means that taller people won't have a great view out when standing in the saloon. The window line is undeniably sleek but the views out aren't as good as board the likes of the Absolute 52 Fly and Princess F55. There's also an odd lack of ventilation. There's a small window above the galley, aft, but there is no way of getting any natural ventilation into the helm station - not even a manual sliding window - so it gets pretty uncomfortable on hot days. 

The 53’s galley design spreads across the aft of the main deck, creating not only a space you can actually cook in, but also lots of practicality, from a proper cabinet refrigerator and dishwasher to designated drawers for glassware and crockery. The beauty of this galley is how everything is so neatly concealed behind the oak panels of the cabinetry, many with satisfying push catches that reveal things like the microwave and storage for the boat's crockery. It's a very clean look.  The design doesn’t allow that complete inside-outside flow into the cockpit, that large fridge winning out over an adjoining window and bar, but it does connect up the saloon and deck easily enough.

Tri-cab triumph

The three cabins are all excellent, the light, relaxed feel of the saloon continuing with a neat twin guest cabin forward VIP that shares a toilet and shower compartment. The owner’s stateroom is full beam with the ensuite lying forward at the cabin entrance. There is also space for a washing machine across the way. 

The layout is interesting. Instead of having the central doorway into the VIP cabin with the day head to port, the day head/VIP ensuite is centrally located, leaving the entrance to the VIP cabin to port. This arrangement creates a more spacious bathroom and provides a separate passageway into the VIP through the head compartment. It also puts the day head closer to the twin cabin, which without its own ensuite will use the day head as its bathroom. Some boats at this size have bunks in the third cabin so it's nice to see side-by-side berths aboard the 53 Fly. 

The owner’s cabin is luxurious and clever in equal measure. Two smart strips of glass line the walls, with mirrors positioned to visually extend the window design and create a sense of even more space. The yacht’s sleek profile is perhaps felt a little in this cabin, with slightly less volume than say the Sunseeker Manhattan 55, but there is still full headroom around the double berth and space for a sofa, dressing area and, most impressively, a full-height walk-in wardrobe. 

azimut 53 interior

Helm Station

azimut 53 helm

The low brow of the windscreen means the view is a little restricted when standing at the lower helm but the adjustable seat makes it easy to get comfortable with a decent view forward thanks to thin windscreen mullions and the position of the wheel towards the centreline. The dash itself is stylish and attractive, dominated as it is upstairs by the comically large and thick steering wheel. 

Our boat had the Gold electronics package which provides 12in Garmin MFDs over the standard 9in ones and this is an investment worth making. It's good to see a remote keypad to control the screens on the dash as well as the touchscreen functionality which can be a bit tricky to use if the boat is bouncing around.  

The lack of ventilation is one issue at the lower helm but having no window to be able to communicate with crew limits the scenarios where you would want to moor the boat from here. When some rivals have full side doors it's not really good enough to have no windows around the helm at all. 

Upstairs there are few complaints. The seated position is excellent and the layout of the dash works very well indeed. Having the major controls on a long moulding to port means the skipper can sit back in their seat and reach the joystick, throttles and the remote for the twin MFDs really easily. The dash is clearly laid out and nice to look at, though it could do with a bit more storage for loose items.

Deck lifestyle

azimut 53 deck

The flybridge is pretty clear on its focus, it’s not the biggest but it is very welcoming with a circular design that is perfect for loafing, lounging and generally enjoying the good life. A large sun pad forward is joined by a wraparound aft seat and fold-out bar-dining table that will also convert to a massive pad. In between, a useful wet bar will keep guests supplied with cold drinks. The optional electro-hydraulic bimini is the more pleasing option for the eye but many will fall for the versatility and ease of the hardtop, which has built-in lighting and a sliding canvas roof operated by a one-touch control on the upper helm. 

Down the flybridge stairs, the aft cockpit keeps things simple with an L-shaped bench and dining area, fender and warp storage below the seats. Even though there is no through window to the galley, it’s great that Azimut has chosen to still deliver a neat bar area, sat beneath the flybridge overhang, making the aft deck feel more sociable and sophisticated. The entire area can be enclosed with canopy covers to extend the living space in poor weather, too. 

At this length, a forward lounge is far from guaranteed and so it should be fully appreciated. This one has a separate seating area, the sunpad running down to the bow. The backrest mechanism is particularly smart and uses hinges and gas rams so you can quickly switch between the two positions. There is also the option for a shade sitting on carbon poles, a useful addition when in port or at anchor. 

At the stern, the hydraulic bathing platform will easily launch the tender (up to 500kg) or serve as a fun swim platform when the boat's at anchor. The transom also gives access to the crew cabin with a single bed and toilet, it could easily make up another occasional guest berth but is probably destined to be a high-end storage area. 

azimut 53 deck

Value For Money

azimut 53, owners cabin

The Azimut 53 must rank as one of the smartest and most cohesive 50ft yachts on the market. In the 10m-15m market, we are seeing a move away from luxurious detail and craft, with builders employing clever if often blandly homogeneous production finishes. Here, the level of thought, design and finish on offer gets the luxury balance right and separates this yacht from what is a crowded market. So while there might be larger yachts in this sector, and some that can match the Azimut on the finish, few mix style, speed and space so effortlessly.

It feels like a quality product, too, not only in the obvious stuff like brightwork and interior finish but the engine room is one of the best in the sector with plenty of space to work on the engines, a very neat installation and some useful extras like a freshwater hose and a pair of wandering lights that attach to the ceiling for easy illumination of the darker corners. 

The base price for a 53 is €1.1 million ex VAT (at the time of writing) but our test boat had around €500,000 of extras including the hard top, Seakeeper, Gold navigation package, crew cabin fit-out, uprated generator and air-conditioning meaning the price as tested was €1.72 million ex VAT (at the time of writing). 

To use a boxing analogy, a 50ft flybridge might well be the best pound-for-pound cruiser out there. Big and heavy enough to be comfortable in most seas, it is still agile and rewarding to drive, offers three good cabins over a 40-footer’s two but is just as easy to self-pilot. The Azimut 53 does all of this and adds some breathtaking design that will look good forever, but, importantly, never forgets that while it is a luxury yacht it is also one that is destined to be used, and you will definitely enjoy using this boat. It's a shame about the lack of ventilation in the saloon and the view aft from the flybridge but there's still a lot to like about this fabulously stylish flybridge cruiser. 

Reasons to Buy

  • Handsome design
  • Handling and performance
  • Well proportioned cabins
  • Excellent engine room

Things to Consider

  • Lack of ventilation in the saloon
  • Poor view aft from upper helm

There is no lack of fast, spacious 50ft flybridge yachts, with all the big players involved, which is why any new boat coming to market needs to go hard or go home. You can demand and win 30knots, three cabins, bright glass-clad salons and spacious decks from any number of builders and with a good deal of variation on price. What you won't always enjoy is the style and beauty on offer here, but we shall leave that subjective point to the beholder. 

The award-winning Sunseeker Manhattan 55 is an obvious rival, big on space and luxury it is arguably the class leader. Azimut’s old adversity, Ferretti , has the clean and serene 550, a larger yacht with crisp Italian style and inside and a very similar layout to the 53.     

The Princess F55 is another close rival, and notably longer yacht, with the same layout on and below decks and a similarly light and welcoming style. The British boat has a big flybridge with masses of seating.

The Absolute 52 Fly and Galeon 530 Fly offer clever deck and interior spaces and more bombastic styling but they are unlikely to be as dynamically sweet as the Azimut. 

It is to the Azimut 53’s credit that all of its main three-cabin rivals are longer boats. Half a meter might not sound much but it counts for a lot on interior volume, so Azimut and its design team are to be congratulated for delivering this amount of easy-living yacht under 17m (55ft).

Azimut Reviews

Azimut logo

Azimut Yachts is one of the foremost Italian boatbuilders, based at a state-of-the-art 100,000 square metre facility in Avigliana, less than 20 miles west of Turin, which can produce up to 300 boats per year and has built more than 10,000 hulls to date.

Founded in Italy in 1969 by Paolo Vitelli, originally as a charter company for sailboats, Azimut Yachts quickly expanded in the 1970s with the launch of its first fibreglass boat design, the AZ 43 Bali, which was built as part of a joint venture with Dutch yard Ameriglass. This was followed up in 1977 by the AZ 32 Targa, which Azimut describes as ‘the Ford Model T of the boat world’.

The next decade saw the company launch the world’s largest mass-produced fiberglass yacht, the 30 metre Azimut 105 Failaka in 1982. Built for a Kuwaiti prince, this yacht also made waves on the other side of the Atlantic and paved the way for Azimut to break into the lucrative US market with its first appearance at the Miami Yacht Show.

A major milestone came in 1985, when Azimut acquired the historic Benetti shipyard and created the Azimut-Benetti Group, which went on to take the title of the world’s largest superyacht builder in the early 21 st century. This came on the back of significant expansion in the 1990s, with new sites in Fano and Avigliana, as well as the restructuring of Benetti’s Viareggio headquarters. New models to splash in the 1990s included the AZ54, with its distinctive eye-shaped side windows – a motif that endured for more than a decade after its launch. More recently, the Gobbi yard was acquired in 2001 and its Atlantis sister brand was merged into the core Azimut portfolio in 2013.

Design and innovation

Azimut has pioneered several key yachting trends over the years, such as large frameless windows, electric seats and walnut wood interiors. As well as using the latest manufacturing techniques to ensure high-quality results, Azimut also prides itself on incorporating the finest hand craftsmanship in its interior detailing, to ensure that exclusive ‘Made in Italy’ feel.

Over the years, the yard has worked with several designers from all across the world, from the British naval architect Michael Peters to the Dutch supremo Cor D Rover, but the classic Azimut combination sees sporty Stefano Righini exterior lines offset by a sumptuous Carlo Galeazzi interior design. The company’s slogan ‘Fino all’ultimo dettaglio’ means ‘To the last detail’, while its yachts aim to evoke the timeless Italian tradition of living La Dolce Vita.

The Azimut range

The current Azimut collection includes the entry-level Verve dayboats, the semi-planing Magellano trawler models (launched in 2008) and the signature flybridge range, all the way up to the Grande superyacht line. The Azimut Yachts flagship, the Grande 35, measures in at an imposing 35 metres and is notable for its extensive use of structural carbon fibre as well as a displacement to planing hull with a wave-piercing bow for added efficiency.

Environmental efforts

Are Sunseeker Boats Any Good?

sunseeker yachts with city in background

Sunseeker has been building boats since 1969 and is one of the largest motor yacht builders in the world. With approximately 150 boats produced each year and their range exceeding 20 models to choose from, it's safe to say that the Sunseeker brand will continue its pursuit for quite some time. With thousands of monthly searches for Sunseeker Yachts on Google, one question that continues to arise from boat buyers is "Are Sunseeker Boats any good?"

This is a very subjective question as Sunseeker builds a particular style of yacht for a particular style of boating, one that may not appeal to someone that loves sportfishing boats or center-consoles. By looking at both industry awards and a good volume of boats sold, we can assume the answer. Sunseeker Yachts are widely considered a good boat builder as they are often recognized through marine industry awards, like the World Yacht Trophies, but there have also been more than 450 used Sunseekers sold since the beginning of 2021. 

"Builders like Sunseeker, Princess, Fairline, Azimut, and others are all pretty similar in their styles with some of the shipyards investing in new technology that may give them slight advantages," said Jay Hendrix, Vice President of SI Yachts. "We are proud to represent Princess Yachts and Absolute Yachts as dealers, which are competitors to Sunseeker, but we have also sold a fair amount of all of these brands on the brokerage market. If you have a Sunseeker you want to sell, call us and we'll put together a full marketing plan just for your boat. We can also help you with learning more about Princess, Absolute, and other luxury motor yacht builders.

Seen below: 'AQUAHOLIC' does a walk-through video of the Sunseeker Manhattan 55

What Kind Of Awards Has Sunseeker Won?

The Sunseeker designers and engineers are not strangers to the major marine industry awards that are given out annually. The Motor Boat Awards are arguably one of the top ceremonies for yacht builders on the international stage. The 2022 awards which were held in January included multiple Sunseeker models in the running for various categories. The Sunseeker 65 Sport Yacht was the winner in the 'Sports Cruisers Over 45-Foot Category'.

"The Sunseeker 65 Sport Yacht lives up to its name with the kind of nimble handling and near 35 knot performance that belies its size and simply wouldn’t be possible on a full-blown flybridge," the judges said. Add in the exhilarating experience of driving the boat from the Skyhelm station on the flybridge and you have one extremely fun boat ride. Additionally the Manhattan 55 was nominated for 'Best Flybridge Up To 60-Feet' and the Manhattan 68 was nominated for 'Best Flybridge Over 60-Feet.

65 Sport Yacht

The World Yacht Trophies are another highly-regarded awards ceremony where Sunseeker did tremendously well in 2021. Three models took home awards in major categories, a testament to the popularity of the British shipyard. The 65 Sport once again won an award, this time for Best Exterior Design in its category. The 88 Motor Yacht won for Best Exterior Design in its category as well, while the 90 Ocean won for Best Layout.

What Are The Most Popular Sunseeker Models

Again, this is a very subjective thing to say that any one model is more popular than another, especially when there can be many differences between ranges like the Manhattan, Portofino, Superhawk, Predator, and others. There are also going to be much fewer boats sold in the 90-foot and up range as there is less of a market at that price. 

The Manhattan model range was quite popular and the sold data supports this. From the beginning of 2021, there have been 83 used Sunseekers sold in the United States and recorded in the MLS. Nearly half of those boats sold were from the Manhattan model line, with the Manhattan 52, Manhattan 55, and Mahattan 66 being the most popular. During this same timeframe, there were 3 Sunseeker boats sold over 100-feet, two of which were based in Miami.

Comparing Sunseeker sold numbers to other competitive brands is worthy of discussion, but other factors like production schedules, sourcing equipment, owners keeping their boats longer, and a variety of economic situations can "muddy the waters" when trying to determine popularity. Looking solely at the American market, Sunseeker came in behind Azimut in total number of pre-owned vessels sold, but did exceed the numbers for Princess, Fairline, Ferretti, and Galeon.

As a leader in the yacht brokerage industry and as one of the most successful new boat dealers in the Northeast, the team at SI Yachts is uniquely experienced to help you take your boating interests to the next level. If you are looking to sell your current Sunseeker or other boat, we can execute a personalized advertising plan, as well as utilize our vast Hubspot CRM database, to help you find a buyer quickly. If you're looking to purchase a yacht, we have access to boats on and off the market that may fit your budget and requirements.

Recreational boats market to be worth $42.1 billion by 2031 - exclusive report by meticulous research®.

REDDING, Calif. , May 28, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- According to a new market research report titled, ' Recreational Boats Market by Type (Motorboats, Yachts, Sailboats, Personal Watercraft), Boat Size, Engine Type (Diesel Engines, Electric Drives), Application (Sports Fishing, Transportation, Watersports), and Geography - Global Forecast to 2031 , ' the recreational boats market is expected to reach $42.1 billion by 2031, at a CAGR of 6.7% from 2024–2031.

Recreational boats, also known as pleasure boats or leisure boats, are watercraft designed and used primarily for recreational purposes rather than for commercial or industrial activities. These boats are typically used for various leisure activities on water bodies such as lakes, rivers, oceans, and coastal areas. Recreational boats come in a wide range of sizes, styles, and configurations to accommodate different preferences, activities, and water conditions. Recreational boats are used for a wide range of activities, including cruising, fishing, watersports, sightseeing, socializing, and relaxation.

The growth of the recreational boats market is driven by the growing tourism sector, rising disposable income, and growing participation in water sports and boating activities. However, strict pollution norms for recreational boats and high fuel prices restrain the market's growth.

Furthermore, the innovation in boat engines and integration of IoT & sensor-based technologies are expected to offer significant growth opportunities for players operating in the recreational boats market. However, the high battery prices of e-boats and high maintenance costs may hinder the growth of this market.

The global recreational boats market is segmented by type (motorboats, yachts, sailboats, personal watercraft {jet ski, inflatables, and other personal watercraft}, fishing boats {center console boats, walk-around boats, flats-fishing boats, convertible boats, and other fishing boats}, cruising boats {runabout boats, catamaran boats, cabin cruiser boats, pontoon boats, and other cruising boats}, and other types), boat size (less than 25 feet, 20 feet to 50 feet, and more than 50 feet), engine type (diesel engines { by engine type [outboard engines, inboard engines, sterndrive engines, and jet drive engines]}, {by power output [less than 250 HP, 250 HP to 500 HP, and more than 500 HP]}, electric drives, and unpowered), and application (sports fishing, transportation, watersports, and other applications). The study also evaluates industry competitors and analyzes the market at the regional and country levels.

Based on type, the global recreational boats market is segmented into motorboats, yachts, sailboats, personal watercraft, fishing boats, cruising boats, and other types. The personal watercraft segment is further segmented into jet ski, inflatables, and other personal watercraft. The fishing boats segment is further segmented into center console boats, walk-around boats, flats-fishing boats, convertible boats, and other fishing boats. The cruising boats segment is further segmented into runabout boats, catamaran boats, cabin cruiser boats, pontoon boats, and other cruising boats. In 2024, the yachts segment is expected to account for the largest share of the global recreational boats market. The large market share of this segment is attributed to various factors, including economic prosperity, high levels of disposable income, and the rise of marine tourism and yacht chartering services. Additionally, the globalization of the yachting industry has opened new markets in emerging economies, where rising affluence and a growing middle class are fueling demand for luxury goods and lifestyle experiences.

However, the sailboats segment is expected to record the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This segment's growth is attributed to various factors, including increasing concerns about environmental sustainability and the offering of unique experiences for tourists seeking adventure and exploration in water-related activities. Also, government regulations aimed at promoting recreational boating safety and environmental conservation can influence the sailboat market.

Based on boat size, the global recreational boats market is segmented into less than 25 feet, 20 feet to 50 feet, and more than 50 feet. In 2024, the 20 feet to 50 feet segment is expected to account for the largest share of the global recreational boats market. The large market share of this segment is attributed to various factors such as the increasing number of affluent individuals, the increasing popularity of the boating lifestyle, characterized by leisurely activities on the water, and families with disposable income contributing to the demand for mid-sized recreational boats. Also, advancements in marine technology, including propulsion systems, navigation equipment, onboard electronics, and materials, influence the design and capabilities of 20 feet to 50 feet recreational boats.

Also, the 20 feet to 50 feet segment is expected to record the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

Based on engine type, the global recreational boats market is segmented into diesel engines, electric drives, and unpowered. The diesel engines segment is further segmented into engine type and power output. The engine type segment is further sub-segmented into outboard engines, inboard engines, sterndrive engines, and jet drive engines. The power output segment is further sub-segmented into less than 250 HP, 250 HP to 500 HP, and more than 500 HP. In 2024, the diesel engines segment is expected to account for the largest share of the global recreational boats market. The large market share of this segment is attributed to various factors, as diesel engines excel in delivering superior power and torque, which is especially crucial for larger boats (yachts, cruisers) that require the ability to handle heavy loads, navigate challenging waters, and tow watersports equipment. Diesel engines are renowned for their robust build quality and extended lifespans. They can withstand prolonged operation under demanding conditions, making them favorable for serious boaters and frequent users.

Also, modern diesel engines boast improved fuel efficiency compared to their gasoline counterparts, particularly for larger vessels undertaking extended trips. This translates to greater range and potentially lower operational costs on longer voyages.

However, the electric drives segment is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This segment's growth is attributed to various factors, such as stringent government regulations on emissions, particularly in environmentally sensitive areas, which are pushing the adoption of electric alternatives. Electric boats generally require less maintenance compared to gasoline-powered ones, which translates to lower operational costs over time for boat owners.

Also, rising fuel prices increase the operational cost of traditional boats, making electric alternatives seem more attractive.

Based on application, the global recreational boats market is segmented into sports fishing, transportation, watersports, and other applications. In 2024, the sports fishing segment is expected to account for the largest share of the global recreational boats market. The large market share of this segment is attributed to various factors, such as the continuous development of new technologies such as lighter and stronger materials, fuel-efficient engines, and innovative navigation systems to improve the boats' performance, efficiency, and overall fishing experience. The rise of competitive fishing tournaments creates a demand for high-performance boats equipped with the latest technology to give participants an edge.

Also, the expansion of marinas and boat clubs provides the necessary infrastructure for boat ownership. These facilities offer storage, maintenance services, and a sense of community for boat owners, making boat ownership more accessible and fostering the sport fishing culture.

Additionally, the same segment is expected to record the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

Based on geography, the recreational boats market is segmented into North America , Europe , Asia-Pacific , Latin America , and the Middle East & Africa . In 2023, Europe is expected to account for the largest share of the global recreational boats market. The growth of this market is driven by government regulations aimed at promoting recreational boating safety and environmental conservation. Incentives such as tax breaks, subsidies for eco-friendly sailboats, and funding for marine infrastructure development may encourage boat ownership and participation in sailing activities, also driving market demand.

Europe also demonstrates a strong demand for recreational boats, as boating has long been a cherished pastime in the region. Various countries' rich natural landscapes, including numerous lakes and waterways, contribute to the popularity of recreational boating, leading to the growth of the recreational boats market.

However, Asia-Pacific is expected to register the highest CAGR of the global recreational boats market. The high growth of the market in the Asia-Pacific region is attributed to various factors, such as economic growth in many parts of Asia-Pacific has led to an increase in disposable incomes, allowing consumers to spend more on leisure activities and the popularity of water sports like surfing, wakeboarding, and fishing is increasing in the region, driving demand for boats that cater to these activities. Also, various local and state government initiatives aimed at promoting tourism, maritime recreation, and water-based sports; policies related to infrastructure development; boating regulations; tax incentives; and marine conservation efforts influence the accessibility and popularity of recreational boating activities can have a significant impact on the recreational boats market during the forecast period.

The key players operating in the global recreational boats market include Brunswick Corporation (U.S.), Groupe Beneteau ( France ), Mastercraft Boat Holdings, Inc. (U.S.), Marine Products Corporation (U.S.), Malibu Boats, Inc. (U.S.), Azimut-Benetti Group (U.S.), Ferretti S.p.A. ( Italy ), Porter, Inc. (U.S.), Grady-White Boats, Inc.
