If you are looking for a boat with the now classic “flying bridge,” you are in the right place. We have selected ten of the most beautiful flybridge boats you can see at the Genoa Boat Show 2023, a type of boat that is always in demand and popular. Some are new, others we have already seen during the last shows, but the Genovese appointment is definitely a unique opportunity to see them up close.
As a reminder, the Genoa Boat Show is open to all visitors until Tuesday, September 26, from 10:00 am to 6:30 pm.
Mylius MY62 – 19.5 m
The new 19.5-meter boat born from the collaboration between Ceccarelli Yacht Design studios and Parisotto + Formenton is a boat designed to maximize onboard experiences and comfort, but without sacrificing performance. The Mylius MY62 has very distinctive lines, a symbol that the shipyard wants to stamp its trademark, well known in the sailing world, on the engine as well. On deck we find the salon with kitchen, with plenty of space dedicated to common areas, and below deck thanks to the two cabins up to four guests can be accommodated. The outdoor areas are also designed to experience multi-person space, both in the forward portions and in the cockpit, as well as in the fly, certainly one of the hallmarks of this boat. Regarding propulsion, the Mylius MY62 is equipped with two Volvo Penta D13-IPS 1350 for maximum speeds of 28 knots.
Sanlorenzo SX76 – 23.75 m
Speaking of the Sanlorenzo shipyard, the fly boat to see in Genoa is definitely the SX76. It is a crossover, midway between the flying bridge boat range and the classic explorer range. The SX range, of which the SX76 is a part, was created by Sanlorenzo’s style office, with input from Luca Santella, the Zuccon International Project studio and Lou Codega for the water lines. The bow line is kept high even as the profile descends to the stern accompanied by large glass surfaces. The flybridge is a central area on this boat; in fact, it houses the wheelhouse and is open, although it can be closed off to the side with up-and-down glazing and aft with strataglass panels.
Cranchi Sixty-seven – 20.8 m
The Cranchi Sixty-seven inherits the lines of the 78 but with a more restrained overall length, with the same streamlined profile and flared bow, pronounced band leader, and high belt line. The art direction of the project, curated by Cranchi’s Research Center, is by Christian Grande, who decided to imprint a distinctive line on the profile design. Several lines are echoed and complemented among the various elements of the boat, such as the large panoramic windows below deck that echo the breakout in the middle of the broadside or the hatch that echoes in part the design of the projecting part of the fly. Here, in addition to the dashboard, we find wet bar or kitchenette, TV cabinet, dinette and table with seating. The area is covered by a T-Top that can be partially opened by a slat system. A“sport-bridge” version will also debut soon and will be named Cranchi Sessantasette Corsa.
Greenline 58 Fly – 18.2 m
Resulting from a collaboration between Greenline Yachts, Marco Casali of Too Design and MICAD is the Greenline 58 Fly. Cruiser-like habitability and innovative solutions throughout the deck, starting with the swim platform that has a lifting capacity of 500 kg. The stars of the flybridge, on this yacht, are the solar panels forward of the living area. There are as many as 11 of them and they can produce 3.6 kW of power to power all on-board services. Carbon fiber was used in the superstructure to lighten the overall weight of the boat. On the fly we also find wheelhouse, bar area, convivial area with central table and enough space to accommodate a deck chair.
Azimut 72 Fly – 22.64 m
Combining power and volume is the challenge Azimut sought to address with the development of the 72 Fly. Thanks to particularly aerodynamic lines, including in the flybridge, which is harmoniously integrated into the boat’s overall layout, the shipyard was able to rise to the challenge and produce a sporty boat with enviable habitability. On the uppermost deck we find the wheelhouse, a dining area with a mobile bar, a dinette that can be transformed into a sundeck, and the open aft area, furnished with armchairs and loungers. There is no shortage of convivial areas in other parts of the boat as well, such as in the bow where we find a panoramic lounge that takes advantage of all available space.

Sunseeker 75 Sport Yacht – 23 m
Up to 40 knots of speed are reached on Sunseeker’s new sport cruising yacht, propelled by the two MAN V12 engines with 1550 or 1900 horsepower. The Sunseeker Sport Yacht 75 boasts a swim platform with XXL spaces-which also houses the aft garage-from which the main deck is accessed via two side ladders. The interiors are particularly well cared for, with the choice of fine woods, contrasting fabrics and indirect, dimmable lighting. The sportbridge, accessed by a staircase on the port side, has passenger seating on the starboard side, a sundeck with chaise-longue, and a wetbar.
Sasga Menorquin 54 FB – 14.98 m
The Flybridge range of the unmistakable Menorquin is enriched with a median model, the Sasga 54, which fits between the 42 and 68. The Menorquín 54 Flybridge is designed for both indoor and outdoor spaces to be comfortably experienced. We find very spacious and well-kept interiors, both in the cabins and in the common areas and dinette, while in the flybridge area, which is open but can be covered by an awning, we find a table with seating and sofas and a second command area. The shipyard offers different possibilities and layouts, with the possibility of outfitting the cabin area in different manners.
Pardo Endurance 60 – 18.08 m
In the Pardo Endurance 60 the Italian soul stands out in design and the more Nordic soul in setting. On board, both in the interior and exterior, we find several innovations to expand the available space. The most conspicuous is in the aft outdoor area, where two fold-down side terraces create a 41-square-meter area to devote to relaxation. Another equipped convivial area is the flybridge, furnished with seating, sundeck and second helm station. The interiors are also particularly spacious with a three-cabin, three-bathroom layout that does not preclude a full-beam master stateroom.
Siren 48 – 15.96 m
A compact yet fully equipped boat for cruising. It debuted in Cannes the Sirena 48, the smallest of the Turkish shipyard’s cruisers, at 15.96 meters wide and 4.93 meters at maximum beam. Despite its smaller size, aboard the Sirena 48 we find the same attention to detail and habitability seen on larger models. The flybridge area has a second wheelhouse and two separate spaces: in the aft area a C-shaped sofa served by a central table, forward of the wheelhouse instead a large sundeck. The interior can accommodate up to six people overnight, with two double cabins and one twin cabin with single beds.
Antares 12 Beneteau – 12 m
If you are looking for a boat somewhere between a weekender and a sport cruiser, in the Beneteau range the Antares 12 is definitely worth considering. In both exterior and interior lines this is a very modern boat, with large areas dedicated to relaxation carved out even in the flybridge deck. Here we find a C-shaped sofa on the left side, served by a central table, and the wetbar with the second wheelhouse on the right side. There is also a small relaxation area carved out in the bow of the sofa, with a panoramic view of the large sundeck in the bow.
