Sarnico Yachts Alldays 39

Sarnico Yachts Alldays 39

Some boats are great for sunny days and are built to run wide-open on glass-flat water while allowing their passengers to totally bronze out. And other boats are built for rough-weather days far from land where everyone aboard is happy for the boat’s indoor space and rugged build. But finding a boat that’s just right for

Horizon E54

Horizon E54

The latest flying-bridge cruiser from Horizon, the E54, couples speed with innovative technology while minimizing her carbon footprint.

The advanced drive system also

Riva 63 Virtus

Riva 63 Virtus

The 63 Virtus is the new flagship for Riva’s open line, a build-type steeped in glamorous history. In the past Riva owners have included movie stars and royalty, so it’s with some excitement that those who follow that sort of thing anticipate exactly who will spring for this largest of the Riva opens. Whoever does open up their

Beneteau Barracuda 9

Beneteau, the giant French boatbuilder that is currently making a concerted push into American markets, is well regarded for its innovative building techniques and efficiency of design.

Bering Yachts B50

The Bering Sea, that harsh and notoriously unforgiving stretch of ocean that separates North America from Asia, may very well have met its match in the ruggedly built, steel-hull B50 from Bering Yachts. The B50 was conceived as the ultimate midrange passagemaker and so is equipped with many useful weapons to help her wage war

Sessa Fly 45

Sessa Fly 45

Sessa Marine’s Cristian Grande-designed Fly 45, which will splash September at the Cannes Boat Show, promises to optimize space onboard as few yachts of her size currently do. The boat’s namesake flying bridge should be able to accommodate as many as ten people (not including the helmsman) who will most likely congregate

Lazzara Breeze 76

Lazzara Breeze 76

If your question is “which new luxury cruising yacht should I check out next time I’m in the market?” then the answer my friend, is blowin’ in the wind. The breeze to be exact—the Breeze 76 from Lazzara. This yacht packs a lot into her 76'5" LOA: an expansive flying bridge with a helm station, shaded lounge area, seating section

Cold-Molded Carolina Boats

Cold-Molded Carolina

Looking to build a custom battlewagon?
Maybe it’s time to consider a jig boat.

A five-axis router is used to cut the frames that are laid out and become the jig.

I’ve heard many boaters tell me that someday they’d

Moonen and Shakin'

I’ve known people who seem to never sleep and yet accomplish a variety of tasks with equal skill and ability. The designers and builders at Moonen certainly seem to fit into that class of people. Though the yard is best known for pocket-size megayachts (see last month’s “Small Wonder”), classifying Moonen yachts will be harder in the future as the shipyard has

Sasga 12

Holding with the strong undercurrent of nostalgia in today’s boating environment, Barracuda Yacht Design will soon unveil the Sasga 12, a “Balearic-style” motoryacht which is inspired by traditional Menorcan fishing rowboats commonly known as Llats. The two keys to the resemblance between the boats are the Sasga’s rounded stern section and her distinctive beam,

Tenders for Yachts and Megayachts

Love Me, Tender

Six head-turning tenders for yachts and megayachts.

A yacht can make a statement, sure. But many times she’s anchored out in the harbor, to be admired from a distance. The real first impression comes when everyone onboard arrives in the tender. Most tenders are typical and unexciting—they carry everyone from point A to point B. But then there’s the
