Updated styling and a gracefully raked bow are two of the more evident features of the Krogen 55-foot Expedition, but they're just icing on the cake. Leveraging 30 years' experience in building bluewater passagemakers, Kadey-Krogen has raised the bar, offering a purebred expedition-style trawler of superior accommodation that boasts a cruising range of more than 3,000 NM.
Most builders update styling periodically to keep models looking fresh. But the revitalized Monte Fino has taken the makeover to a new level. The handsome but somewhat staid look that defined the brand over the past decade has been transformed, creating a svelte charmer that would be the envy of any Italian design studio. Partnering with Humphreys Yacht Design, Monte Fino intends to redesign
Known for traditional pilothouse motoryachts, Ocean Reef Yachts has gone sleek and sexy with the Reefrunner 70, a Downeast-style cruiser expected to have a top speed around 40 knots and a cruise speed of about 35 knots. Seeking to appeal to a broad range of customers, the Reefrunner is offered in either a four-stateroom, galley-up or a three-stateroom, galley-down arrangement and an express or
One of the major challenges in yacht design is creating a look that is distinctive but not outlandish. With its 164-foot trideck Mine Games, Trinity Yachts seems to have hit just the right balance. Her deckhouse side windows are nestled into two elongated ovals that diminish the visual mass of her
Like Tom Cruise in Top Gun, the "need for speed" was a high priority for the owners of a custom 101-foot motoryacht being built at Burger Boat Company. But other priorities included world-class fit and finish, seaworthiness, and state-of-the-art technology, plus finding a yard with a reputation for service and reliability. These factors, along with an immediate rapport with CEO and
Not just the largest motoryacht to date for Heesen Yachts, this 55-meter (180-footer) is one of the most technologically advanced projects ever undertaken by the Dutch builder. Built entirely of aluminum, she'll meet ABS @ A1 Yachting Service AMS Class and
Never content to rest on its laurels, Viking Yachts is true to the company mantra: Build a better boat every day. Nowhere is this commitment more evident than in its latest offering, the all-new 60 Convertible. Arguably the best yet from the New Jersey builder, she boasts an advanced hull form, dramatic new
The 2005 retirement of the venerable 42 Heritage left a major void in the Grand Banks model line. The classic 42 was a tough act to follow, but with the introduction of the 41 Heritage EU, Grand Banks has outdone itself. Though she's the shortest in the Heritage lineup, she's long on features, including
I can so easily gush about the cabinetry and carpentry coming out of Lyman-Morse Boatbuilding, but truthfully no amount of gush suffices. While some of the photographs here reveal the razor-tight joints, panel perfection, and carved and inlaid highlights that grace the company's projects, you have to tour a fleet of Lyman-Morse builds to realize the astonishing variety of styles and construction
There's no denying the popularity of express cruisers. But in a way, they are fair-weather friends. When conditions get nasty, everyone has to huddle under the hardtop or, worse, retire to a cave-like saloon on the lower deck. It's really only when the weather is nice that it's fun to be out on the open, airy
If you've ever seen anything like this before, you've probably been doing something you shouldn't: either snooping round a couple of select UK shipyards or attracting the attention of British special forces.
But this one isn't secret. It's the first motoryacht built using "very slender vessel" (hence her VSV designation) wave-piercing principles and a patented hull shape drawn by naval
Don't be misled by the sleek, swept-back lines of her sporty profile; the Horizon 95 delivers interior space on a grand scale wrapped in a lithe, well-proportioned exterior. Foregoing the utility of full walkaround side decks, this yacht's owners opted for a wide-body saloon that extends full beam
Building just three or four yachts each year, Moonen Shipyards exemplifies the best of the Dutch yacht-building ethic. It's one of a diminishing number of builders producing fully custom yachts under 100 feet, and it's worth noting that managing
