Our Boat Test of the Delta 88.
The carbon-fiber-built Delta 88 is pushing the limits of design and construction in her class. We cruised her around the Swedish resort town of Marstrand to really see what she can do. See what we found out here.
Our first look at the Elandra 53.
I suspect this boat’s performance level will be equal to her design and construction, and that should bode well for her entrée into the American market.
Our first look at the Carbon Craft 180 tender. These boats are about as space-age as it gets in the world of high-end tenders, and nowadays that’s saying something.
Our Boat Test of the Custom Line Navetta 28.
When European Editor Alan Harper got aboard the Custom Line Navetta 28, he wondered at the understated interiors with no shortage of luxurious appointments. But the true level of sophistication comes from her sound levels, which dropped off the bottom of his meter. See what we’re whispering about here.
Our Boat Test of the Hunt 80.
With its 80, Hunt pushed its boundaries for building larger boats, and came away with a boat that is eminently cruisable, not to mention pretty. Read the full test here.
Our Boat Test of the Azimut Atlantis 43.
With its Atlantis 43, Azimut serves up a sporty, versatile vessel that should make boating fun for the whole family. See what else we thought of this beauty here.
Does the industrial use of LNG-powered propulsion herald a cleaner future for pleasure boats? Executive Editor Capt. Bill Pike investigates the possibility.
Our first look at the Sanlorenzo SL86.
An elegant, 86-foot Italian motoryacht that can hit 32 knots on the pins? Something tells me Sanlorenzo isn’t going to have to spend a lot of time finding takers on this one.
The 60 Cantius from Cruisers Yachts retains the interior volume we’ve come to expect from Cruisers, but with a twist: She’s got a sporty profile. Read how she came together here.
Five boatbuilders discuss what the breakout yacht-design trends will be at this year’s Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show.
Our Boat Test of the Monte Carlo 6.
The Monte Carlo 6 may not be a Monte Carlo Yacht, but she sure looks and runs like one.
The Kadey-Krogen 48 AE debut at the 2015 Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show.
The Hatteras 70 Motor Yacht debut at the 2015 Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show.
The Princess 88 debut at the 2015 Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show.

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.
