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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
Our first look at the Tiara Q44.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Our first look at the Invincible 39' Open Fisherman
Our Boat Test of the Jarrett Bay 43 HTX.
With a sporty ride, serious fishing amenities, and onboard attention to detail that will impress, the Jarrett Bay 43 HTX is a boat you need to know about. Read all about her here.
The logo for Bertram Yachts has long been an eagle but perhaps these days the mythological phoenix would be more fitting.
MarineMax added bulbous bows to its Aquila 44 catamaran and compared the resulting performance. And Capt. Bill Pike was along for the ride, on both boats. See what he found out here.
Our Boat Test of the Hatteras GT70.
With the new GT70, Hatteras Yachts grows its sportfish line—and may regalvanize its legend along the way.
Our first look at the Bering 80. There are no two ways about it, the Bering 80 is a serious long-range cruiser.
