Cheoy Lee (CL Yachts) to debut 

The CLA76
The CLA76

CL Yachts will makes its first public appearance at the yacht show and display its latest models, the CLA76 and CLB72.

The CLA76 is the successor to Cheoy Lee’s popular Alpha Express Series. The builder says it has fluid lines and a sharp silhouette to define the dynamic exterior of the yacht, which is accompanied by thoughtfully designed interiors that exude modernity, comfort, and elegance at its best. Thanks to its resin-infused, composite hull designed by Michael Peters Yacht Design, coupled with a foam cored monocoque structure by acclaimed naval architect Al Horsmon, the CLA76 excels in efficiency and performance.

The CLB72 is like the CLA76, but is smaller. It is built upon the combined expertise of naval architect Howard Apollonio, and leading marine structural engineers Gurit. It is designed to pushes the boundaries of marine engineering, achieving an exceptionally lightweight and aesthetically pleasing design without compromising the integrity of its structure, the company says. Its resin-infused composite hull and strategic use of carbon fiber ensures outstanding efficiency, performance, and durability.

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.
