Regal 5260 Commodore Express

Regal 5260 Commodore Express

With the introduction of the 52-foot express cruiser, Regal Marine is not just ushering in a new flagship, it’s offering a level of customization that it says is without precedent in a production yacht of this size.

Boatbuilding, Downeast Style

Mount Desert Island, Maine, lies Downeast—about 100 miles northeast of Portland as the seagull flies. A century ago, most islanders made their living from the sea: fishing, lobstering, skippering yachts for "rusticators" (summer visitors), maybe a little bit of all three. In the winter the watermen built boats to use themselves or to sell. Today the descendants of those rugged old-timers

Viking Sanlorenzo SD92

It was just last year that the Sanlorenzo 88 debuted, the first in a line of custom yachts offered through an alliance between New Jersey-based Viking Yachts and Sanlorenzo, located in Viareggio, Italy. This fall the second model, the SD92, is slated to debut. Unlike the 88, which has a hard-chine planing

Calyber Boatworks 35 Express

Calyber Boatworks 35 Express

The biggest news about this petite sportfisherman is not her size, layout, or design, but rather her propulsion system. She’s one of the first sportfishing yachts designed expressly to utilize Volvo Penta’s innovative IPS 500. With its

Sea Force IX 91.5

Sea Force IX 91.5

In just three years, Sea Force IX has made its mark in high-end sportfishing yachts. Its first model, the 81.5, clearly met the company's seemingly lofty goals of achieving exceptional standards for design, construction, and performance. Now Sea Force IX ups the ante with the 91.5; the extra ten feet affords even

Hampton Endurance 700

Hampton Endurance 700

Taking Hampton Yachts in a new direction, the Endurance 700 is a bit of a hybrid, combining the virtues of a full-displacement passagemaker and a semidisplacement motoryacht. With her Portuguese bridge and canted windshield protected by a generous brow, she has the bulldog-tough look of a serious expedition

Custom Craft

These days a fully custom 100-footer is an anomaly, which suits Cheoy Lee just fine.

Experience often has a direct relationship to success; the more of it you have, the more likely you are to perform well. And nowhere is this truer than in boatbuilding.

If I had any doubt of that, it disappeared the moment I stepped aboard the

Warren S120 Sport Yacht

Warren S120 Sport Yacht

Taking the notion of an open sport yacht to new lengths, Brisbane, Australia's Warren Yachts has begun construction of a new flagship in its Sport Yacht series. Building on the success of its S87, the 120-foot S120 will make an awesome visual

Many of them have the time, money, and desire to cruise the world on their own terms. Targeting that fast-growing

Pack 'n Play

Surprised to see a Portuguese bridge on a 78-foot yacht? You can opt for an open flying bridge instead, if you wish.

They took my toothpaste!

I was passing through the security checkpoint at Newark Liberty International Airport in mid-October, and the Transportation Security Authority (TSA) agents pulled my carry-on aside to

Posillipo Technema 120

Posillipo Technema 120

A few years ago Gianfranco Rizzardi rescued the troubled Posillipo brand, jump-starting it with a new Technema 105-footer that, as the story goes, took just 700 days from inception to launch. Complementing the five existing models in the Technema

The Perfect Couple

Rising fuel costs are of serious concern. And even though fuel prices are dropping at the time of this writing, they may be on the rise again by the time these words are read. Even if that's not the case, it's widely held that fuel prices will eventually rise and never come down to levels seen during past

2007 Marine Engine Roundup

Inspiration is a funny thing. At one time boatbuilders looked to on-road engine designs for the newest technologies. Then, as the popularity of boating exploded, they discovered powerplants designed just for marine applications, whether hanging off the transom or rumbling under the deck of an inboard cruiser. But as many of us know, everything works in cycles, and for 2007 a number of engine

Heesen 50-Meter Man of Steel

Heesen 50-Meter Man of Steel

Looking to up his own ante on indulgence afloat, the owner of the 38-meter (125-foot) Man of Steel has commissioned Heesen Yachts to build a 50-meter successor, scheduled for delivery in 2008. Though she's far from the biggest motoryacht around, she packs an impressive array of creature comforts

The latest and largest project yet undertaken by this venerable Maine builder is a classy, 94-foot motoryacht that was designed in collaboration with the C. Raymond Hunt organization. She is being built for the owner of Tumblehome, a similarly styled Lyman-Morse 90-footer designed and built by the

Aicon 85

In 2001 Aicon made a big splash with its debut model, a 56-foot, flying-bridge cruiser. Well-received at the 2001 Genoa boat show, the 56 was named “International Boat of the Year” at the 2002 Cannes boat show in France and helped establish the Italian yard as a promising new builder in a competitive field.

Aicon hopes the accolades will

Propeller-less Propulsion

Ever since the paddlewheel gave way to the screw propeller, there has been little fundamental change in the way that ships and boats are propelled through the water. Over the last century or so, engines and hull forms have evolved substantially, but the means of converting horsepower into thrust has remained pretty much the same: a rotating propeller accelerates the surrounding water in one

Horizon Yachts Vision 68

Horizon Yachts Vision 68

Although she’s one of the shorter offerings in Horizon’s line of Taiwanese-built motoryachts (which includes models ranging from 62 to more than 130 feet), the new 68 delivers an impressively long list of features and amenities. Her standard equipment includes virtually everything: navigation electronics,

Sol Ambition

The Island Pilot's DSe's catamaran hulls are long and slender to produce minimum drag.

When the first Island Pilot 395 was introduced two years ago, she defied established convention and raised a lot of eyebrows, partly due to her distinctive angular styling, but mainly

Outer Reef 80 Raised Pilothouse

Outer Reef 80 Raised Pilothouse

Some people think “classic” and “stylish” are at opposite ends of the spectrum, i.e., traditional versus modern. However, some classics never go out of style, like two-seater sports cars and the basic black cocktail dress. Among the ranks of these durable classic styles is the raised-pilothouse
