Baglietto MV13

Our Boat Test of the Baglietto MV13. With lines inspired by the military and high speeds that will remind you of a torpedo, the Italian-built Baglietto MV13 is one of the more unique boats we’ve tested in a while. Our editor took her for spin and liked what he saw.

Riva 88 Florida

Power & Motoryacht's first look at the Riva 88 Florida. 

When it comes to making an impression at the docks, it’s hard to beat the new Riva 88 Florida. With stiletto-slick lines and massive MTUs in her engine room, this boat makes an impression that’s hard to forget.

Guns Onboard Boats

In his Sightlines column, Michael Peters asks an important and controversial question: Would having a gun onboard his boat actually make him safer, or just introduce new risks? Read here to see what he concluded.

Rio Yachts 56 Granturismo

Power & Motoryacht's Boat Test of the Rio Yachts 56 Granturismo.

English Harbour 16

Our first look at the English Harbour 16.  

There are few things more peaceful than a cocktail cruise through a silent mooring field at sunset. And there are few boats more perfect for that task than the English Harbour 16.

Tested: Foul-Weather Gear

We rounded up a variety of foul-weather jackets from some well-known brands and tested them. 

When the wind picks up and the clouds get dark, it’s time to pull on the foulies. But not all foul-weather wear is created equal. We took five different jackets and put them through our own rigorous test to find out which is the best for you—better yet, we got it all on video. Read (and watch) more here.

How to Have the Most Accurate Nautical Charts

These are heady times for marine-navigation systems. New technologies are making it possible to share information with fellow boaters faster and more easily than ever before, making charts incredibly accurate. Read here to find out how you can get involved.

Carver C37

Power & Motoryacht's first look at the Carver C37. 

Carver’s new C37 blends an unexpectedly sporty look with the large amounts of interior space you’ve come to expect from the builder. Maybe even better, she’s priced pretty sweetly too.

Hargrave 125

The Hargrave 125 brings the company’s exquisite use of space to bear on a size range mostly served by trideck motoryachts. But this raised pilothouse design can more than hold her own. Get a the lowdown here.

Hinckley Talaria 44 Refit

Hinckley CEO Jim McManus was looking for a gently used, cruisable boat with a nice turn of speed. Lucky for him, he knew just where to start, and how to proceed. Here is the whole story.

Prestige 450 Flybridge

Power & Motoryacht's Boat Test of the Prestige 450 Flybridge. 

Prestige packed a whole lot of boat onto its new 450 Flybridge. And that was a fact that was not lost on our tester when he boarded this sporty, mid-size cruiser.

The State of the Sportfisherman

We spoke to sportfish builders from Florida, New Jersey, and North Carolina to see why they build their boats the way they do. What we found out might raise some hackles.

Viking 42 ST

Power & Motoryacht's Boat Test of the Viking 42 ST

The Viking 42 ST is one of the smallest boats in the Viking line, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t pack a punch. We got onboard the boat in Palm Beach to see what this amenity-laden hard charger could do.

How to Find the Best Cruising Speed for Your Boat

Here’s something you might not know about your boat’s optimal cruise speed.  

Finding your boat’s “sweet spot” when it comes to cruising speed isn’t an exact science, but it’s pretty darn close. And knowing exactly where to run your engine for optimal speed and fuel efficiency is something every boater should be aware of. Here’s how you can get in the know.

Mangusta 110

Power & Motoryacht's first look at the Mangusta 110. 

Mangusta’s new 110 is a burly beast of a boat that can top out at 33 knots despite her 111-foot LOA. That speed is thanks mostly to her powerful twin 2,600-horsepower MTUs matched to KaMeWa waterjets.

The Responsibilities of a Captain

In his latest Sightlines column Michael Peters takes a sobering look at the responsibilities of a captain, in good times and in bad. And he wonders a very important question; does the captain need to go down with the ship?

Numarine 70HT

Power & Motoryacht's first look at the Numarine 70HT

The Numarine 70HT is an attention-grabbing boat thanks to her striking profile and athletic performance. But Dennis Caprio took a closer look at this Turkish build and found more to like than just the obvious.

Alpha 87 Sportbridge

Power & Motoryacht's Boat Test of the Cheoy Lee Alpha 87 Sportbridge

The Cheoy Lee Alpha 87 is defined by exceptional fit and finish, a sporty ride, and high-quality design and build processes. Capt. Richard Thiel gave her a real workout recently. See what he had to say about her here.

The Pitfalls of Being Overly Reliant on GPS

Why GPS could be more dangerous than you think.
