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

Earthrace Saga

Earthrace is a B100-powered 78-foot trimaran with carbon fiber and Kevlar laminates and engine air intakes atop her “wings” to facilitate breathing in the wave-piercing mode. Below: Earthrace’s proposed around-the-world route.

Viking Custom Yachts Sanlorenzo 88

Viking Custom Yachts Sanlorenzo 88

Some years ago, as a means of expanding and diversifying its product offerings, New Jersey-based Viking Yachts forged a strategic alliance with England’s Princess Yachts to produce the Viking Sport Cruisers line. Now, as Viking sets its sights on building a line of custom motoryachts, it has

A New Standard

A few years ago, Tom Murphy was pretty sure he wanted absolutely nothing to do with Hargrave Custom Yachts.

A few months ago, having spent two years working with Murphy, Hargrave Custom Yachts was pretty sure it never wanted to deal with another yacht owner like him again.

Funny, then, how

Piece(s) de Resistance

Who among us isn’t keenly interested in acquiring something new or different? When it comes to the amenities aboard your yacht, this can translate to something as simple as taking the latest home trend or a familiar object from land-based life and incorporating it—with a twist, of course—into offshore living.

And that’s happening with increasing frequency

San Juan 40 Fly Bridge

San Juan 40 Fly Bridge

It's abundantly clear that San Juan Yachts has found a look and a style to stay with. Each model, from the 30-foot Express to the 48-foot Fly Bridge, retains the distinctive air of the original San Juan 38. So it’s no surprise that the new 40-foot Fly Bridge adheres to the same proven concept: handsome

Some Like It Hot

To many surveyors and their clients, the moisture meter is the ne plus ultra of laminate-testing tools, a technical leap and a half beyond whacking the boat with a soft-faced hammer. But not for long...

Dismissing Disability

Despite his disability, Capt. Jim has no trouble getting on and off his boat, thanks to this gangplank with ropes and struts.

You're at the broker's sales dock, looking at a glistening yacht thinking, "You know, this boat has me written all over it." Without a second thought, you race up the boarding steps and clamber aboard. Yes!

VictorEous Return

V is for Vic Edelbrock's excellent ride.

Vic Edelbrock's 66th birthday was, to say the least, memorable. He and his wife Nancy were out in Catalina Island, California, that day in August 2002, when she handed him a rolled-up sheet of paper swathed in a big red, white, and blue bow. When he unwrapped it, he discovered a

Sunreef 67 Power

Sunreef 67 Power

It’s just a question of time. Even the most diehard sailors will eventually be tempted to come over to “the dark side,” forgoing the laborious winching, hauling, and hoisting of sails in favor of simply turning a key and motoring off into the sunset. So it’s to be expected that some sailboat builders might make the

Hatteras 60 Convertible

Hatteras 60 Convertible

Remember that old saw that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks? Fugghedaboutit. Hatteras, one of the most venerable names in sportfishing, has literally reinvented its approach to building sportfishing yachts. In designing their new 60-foot Convertible, Hatteras’ engineers have slashed weight with such a

Better the Second Time Around

The Huckins Fairform Flyer draws its lineage from WWII.

It’s been said that you never really know how much you love something until it’s gone, and that love can make a person do crazy things…

Tarquin Trader 70 Motoryacht

In typically British understated fashion, Tarquin Boat Company offers its largest model yet: a 70-foot, twin-deck motoryacht that delivers first-rate engineering and systems, voluminous interior spaces, and top-shelf components.

Pearson True North 45 Explorer

Pearson True North 45 Explorer

In network television shows, a spin-off seldom measures up to the original. Not true in yacht design, though, at least in the case of True North. Introduced by Pearson Composites in 2001, its distinctive-looking 38 became an instant hit that was encored two years later by an equally well-received

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2006 (State-Owned) #1: Dubai

#1: DUBAI—524'10"

While yacht-watchers worldwide—including us—expected this yacht to be completed by now, apparently final touches are still being applied to her interior. But when you’re the ruler of Dubai and have a yacht that’s nearly the length of two football fields and 71 feet wide, it takes a lot to fill

World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2006 (State-Owned) #3: Isham Al Baher

#3: ISHAM AL BAHER—379'0"

This yacht was used by the late King Fahd from the 1970’s through the early part of this decade; since she’s usually in Greece away from the public, it’s long been difficult to obtain information on her. Since we haven’t read or heard of the current Saudi king either donating her to another family
