Palmetto-Based Jupiter Marine Officially Unveils Much-Anticipated Crossover Boat

jupiter marine logoJupiter Marine International – a Palmetto-based company committed to custom building the finest, most technologically advanced boats available today – proudly unveiled its latest and most unique project – the ultra-luxurious 34LX – to the world at the 56th Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in November 2015. “We sought out to create something unlike anything we’ve ever made before,” said Todd Albrecht, vice president of Jupiter Marine. “With the 34LX, we have successfully achieved a fully customizable yacht-quality masterpiece that will appeal to boaters who long for a world of adventures – well beyond the limits of traditionally defined sport fishing, cruising or over-nighting lifestyles.”

The result of more than four years of research and design, the 34LX represents a hybrid of the company’s popular center console and 41SB models. At 33’ 9”’ in length with a 10’ 5” beam, the 34LX was conceived and executed with revolutionary style and detail by Jupiter Marine’s award-winning design team. The innovative, sleek crossover design opens up a new realm perfect for a day of sport fishing, evening cruising, overnight excursions for up to four people and more, with a host of customizable options and features throughout. 

“Along with a range of feature-rich standard items that go well beyond our existing models, the 34LX offers our customers the opportunity to personalize their boat to their exact preferences,” said Albrecht. “This customization includes aspects that you would not normally have the option to change. Basically, this boat becomes your ultimate creation, where exceptional form meets unparalleled function.”

Built on Jupiter’s flagship Posi-Stern hull pad complemented by a powerful twin or triple Yamaha four-stroke outboard engine package, the 34LX delivers a perfect running angle at all times for higher speeds, sharper turns, increased fuel economy and a smoother ride – with no loss of visibility from the helm. Set under the oversized hardtop with recessed LED lighting or an optional tower, the bridge deck area features twin command seating at the completely updated dash, which was configured to accommodate the largest, most up-to-date 16-inch touchscreen electronics. Through the sliding door entryway, three solid wood steps lead down to reveal the meticulously appointed cabin adorned with rich wood floors and accents, a spacious aft berth and a forward V-berth, a full galley with top-of-the-line appliances, and a spacious head with a stand-up shower. 

From lay-up to launch, the custom Jupiter boatbuilding process takes approximately 12 weeks, depending on level of personalization. Visit for more information on the 34LX available options and standard features.
