Otam 80

Our Boat Test of the Otam 80. 

The Otam 80 takes all the horsepower you could want and puts it to the water with surface drives. You don't know what this hot combination can do—until you take the wheel. See what happens here.

Zeelander Z55

Our first look at the Zeelander Z55. How do you take measure of a megayacht? Is it by size alone? Or the level of luxury? Or perhaps by the way a design catches your eye? Before you answer, have a look at the Zeelander Z55.

Outer Reef 820 Cockpit Motoryacht

Our first look at the Outer Reef 820 Cockpit Motoryacht. Comfort means different things to different people, but cruising capabilities cut across those lines. This Outer Reef is an example of that.

Horizon FD85

Our first look at the Horizon FD85. The Horizon FD85 won hearts at the Taiwan International Boat Show. Next stop: the world.

Fountaine Pajot MY 37

Our first look at the Fountaine Pajot MY 37. This cat is the perfect platform for anyone looking for a pocket-sized cruiser with a little something extra.

Bavaria 450 Coupe

Germany has come to be known for its engineering exports. A company called Bavaria has been building boats for Europe to enjoy for quite some time. And now they’re here. See for yourself.

Grady-White Canyon 271 FS

Our first look at the Grady-White Canyon 271 FS. We like the looks of this boat. Couple that with Grady’s reputation for smooth rides and durability and this model should be a force to be reckoned with.

Hinckley Talaria 34R

Our first look at the Hinckley Talaria 34R. Hinckley is at it again. Late this spring the builder will be adding to its famed Jetboat line a 34 Runabout that should acquit herself exceptionally as a dayboat.

Azimut Magellano 76

Our first look of the Azimut Magellano 76. Azimut really does a good job with this line. And with that adaptable hull and all the space a 76-footer affords, this Magellano should become a heavy hitter in the long-range cruising market.

Marlow Yachts 66E

Our Boat Test of the Marlow Yachts 66E. The Marlow Yachts 66E is a fine, seaworthy vessel. But the detailing and engineering that are generally hallmarks of the Marlow brand push her well beyond such stalwart adjectives.

Neptunus 650

Our first look at the Neptunus 650. If you ask us, Neptunus absolutely nailed the lines on this versatile and well-thought-out Canadian-built express cruiser.

Beneteau Gran Turismo 40

Our Boat Test of the Beneteau GT40. 

French boatbuilder Beneteau seems to understand the lifespan of its models. And when they hit the reset button on one like this, be ready to be impressed. See what we mean here.

Everglades 435

Our Boat Test of the Everglades 435. 

Florida-built center consoles are not all the same. Some claim pure speed, while some claim rough-water performance. Everglades is ready for action with its new 435. See why here.

Azimut 72 Fly

Our Boat Test of the Azimut 72 Fly. 

European Editor Alan Harper reviews the Azimut 72 Fly and explores how the point where interior volume and performance meet can drive the mind to most pleasant distraction.

Mares 45 Yacht Fish

Our first look at the Mares 45 Yacht Fish. She may look unorthodox—and believe us she is—but don’t be close-minded, this boat has a whole lot to offer.

Horizon V80

Our Boat Test of the Horizon V80. 

Gather together, everyone, and check out the Horizon V80. Don’t worry, there’s plenty of room. See what we’re talking about here.

Nordhavn 52

Our Boat Test of the Nordhavn 52. 

For cruisers who are in it for the long haul, the Nordhavn 52 is built to last. Get the lowdown on what sets this cruising boat apart from the crowd in our full test here.

Delta 400

Our first look at the Delta 400. The Delta 400 is a design-forward boat with performance numbers that will get just about anyone’s adrenaline up.

Elandra 53 Sport Yacht

Our Boat Test of the Elandra 53 Sport Yacht. 

See what happens when some experienced Australian boatbuilders start a new brand of sport yacht. Or just get a load of the Elandra 53. Either way, your eyes will open. See why here.

Prestige 680

Our first look at the Prestige 680. With a range of boats between 40 and 75 feet, Prestige has, in recent years, made a strong push into the midsize luxury cruising market. And the company’s popularity should be no surprise considering the attention to detail aboard its boats.

Tiara Q44

Our Boat Test of the Tiara Q44. 

Who better to take you through the capabilities (substantial) and amenities (plenty to go around) of Tiara’s new Q44 than Leon Slikkers of Tiara Yachts. Join Executive Editor Capt. Bill Pike as he joins Slikkers and his team on the Great Lakes. See what happened here.

Riviera 57

Our first look at the Riviera 57. One look at this 57 and you can tell that she will live up to the Riviera tenets of versatility and seaworthiness. She just looks...strong.

Viking 80

Our Boat Test of the Viking 80. 

Viking decided to take the Viking 80 in a different direction, one that fits in very well with what we look for in a fishing-ready performer. See what we found out when we put her through her paces here.

MJM 50z

Our Boat Test of the MJM 50z. 

There are those who will tell you displacement speed is the most fuel-efficient way to travel. But back-of-the-envelope calculations may show you that the MJM 50z is the solution for the way you cruise.

Southport 33 FE

Our first look at the Southport 33 FE. Man, this hull can really run. The 33 FE from Southport is a do-it-all boat that is a ton of fun to whip around, especially when there are family and friends aboard.

Hatteras 70 Motor Yacht

Our first look at the Hatteras 70 Motor Yacht. 

Among Hatteras’s primary concerns when it created the 70 Motor Yacht was interior volume and livability. To that end, the company really went all out. With four staterooms, the 70 can easily accommodate eight guests, nine if you incorporate the optional Pullman berth.
