The Prettiest Boats of All Time

Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, but these 25 vessels are unassailably gorgeous. Check out the 25 boats we picked as some of the prettiest ever to splash.

Prestige 750

Our Boat Test of the Prestige 750. 

The Prestige 750 has all sorts of interior space, but you’d never know it by the way she handles.

Axopar 28

Our first look at the Axopar 28. 

And now for something just a little bit different, huh? This boat is so Euro it hurts—in a good way. The boxier-than-usual lines work here, and that twin-step hull should make her a blast to drive. And not for nothing, but that price point doesn’t hurt her cause either.

Carver C43

Our Boat Test of the Carver C43. 

The Carver C43 may look unlike past Carvers, but that doesn’t mean she’s abandoned her cruising DNA.

Fairline Targa 53GT

Our first look at the Fairline Targa 53GT. 

It’s hard not to like what Fairline’s doing these days. Its launches all seem to be fun to drive with lots of attention to onboard detail. And the 53GT looks to be no different.

Kadey-Krogen 55 Expedition

Our Boat Test of the Kadey-Krogen 55 Expedition

Kadey-Krogen knows long-range cruisers, so we jumped at the chance to climb aboard with a delivery crew to see what’s up with the latest addition to its fleet, the 55 Expedition. See what happened along the way here.

Invictus 270FX

Our first look at the Invictus 270FX.  

Who says the Americans have the center console market on lockdown? This boat makes a strong argument that the Europeans can compete for real.

Hunt 32CC

Our Boat Test of the Hunt 32CC. 

The new Hunt 32CC is as at home at the yacht club as she is on the fishing grounds.

Azimut Atlantis 43

Our first look at the Azimut Atlantis 43. 

This 43 has big-boat luxury in a relatively small package—and she’s got ambition written all over her.

Wider 32

Our Boat Test of the Wider 32. 

The Wider 32 is a high-end little vessel for serious boaters. And though she may look unorthodox at first, there’s a method to her madness.

Grand Banks 55 Aleutian RP

Our Boat Test of the Grand Banks 55 Aleutian RP. 

With a straightforward propulsion package, a time-tested hullform, and an artisanally crafted interior, the Grand Banks 55 Aleutian RP delivers the goods in a very far-flung locale.

Horizon E78

Our first look at the Horizon E78. 

Man this thing could really change the game as far as Great Lakes cruising goes. Who needs Lambeau Field when you could drop the E78’s hook in Green Bay in early September and catch the Packers season opener on the tube?

Austin Parker 64 Fly S

Our Boat Test of the Austin Parker 64 Fly S. 

The Austin Parker 64 Fly S may have roots extending back to the working lobster boats of Maine, but it’s hard to be sure considering she’s got so much European style. However, she definitely retains the seakeeping characteristics of those trustworthy vessels.

Sea Blade 35

Thanks to a hull design that you won’t see many other places, the Sea Blade 35 from New England Boatworks in conjunction with Navatek can handle rough seas and heady speeds.

Oceanic 90 STS Expedition Yacht

Our boat test of the Oceanic 90 STS Expedition Yacht. 

The Oceanic 90 STS Expedition Yacht may be built for the long haul and some big-time adventures, but that doesn't mean her builders skimped on onboard comforts.

Maritimo M65

Our first look at the Maritimo M65. The Maritimo M65 was built to withstand the rugged marine environs surrounding her Australian home. But those excellent seafaring qualities payoff wherever she may roam.

Azimut 50

Our Boat Test of the Azimut 50. 

A lot is expected from a 50-foot boat. And Azimut was up to the challenge with its 50, which we found to have comfort, speed, and lots of good looks.

Horizon E84

Our first look at the Horizon E84. It’s no wonder this boat caused such a stir at the 2015 Palm Beach show, where she debuted. Just drink her in.

Bavaria Virtess 420 Coupe

Our Boat Test of the Bavaria Virtess 420 Coupe.  

German boatbuilder Bavaria Yachts has quite a following in Europe. And with three staterooms in a boat under 45 feet LOA, it’s not hard to understand why.
