Boat Tests

Delta 400

Our Boat Test of the Delta 400. This stern drive speedster offers a simple, useful layout with a few surprises. And her profile edges toward salty thanks to a reverse pilothouse windshield. Get all the details here.

Fleming 58

Our Boat Test of the Fleming 58. When an able cruiser like the Fleming 58 falls into the viewfinder of Capt. Bill Pike, you just know he’s going find a few things to say. Take a read of his test and think about what you would do with a boat like this.

Sabre 66 Dirigo

Our Boat Test of the Sabre 66. Sabre’s largest, latest model, the 66 Dirigo, has made waves since the Maine boatbuilder released her initial designs. We joined the delivery crew for a leg on her way south to her new owner, to see if she lives up to the hype.

Fairline Targa 53GT

Our Boat Test of the Fairline Targa 53GT. Fairline is staying the course after facing down a financial headsea or two. The future looks bright indeed if the Targa 53GT is any indication, and this luxurious saloon layout is just the start.

Sea Ray 400 Fly

Our Boat Test of the Sea Ray 400 Fly. Sea Ray has a world-class reputation for building sporty express boats. Capt. Richard Thiel tests the new 400 Fly to see if the new design unravels or cements the legacy.

Monte Carlo Yachts 105

Our Boat Test of the MCY 105. If there was ever a company that showed superyacht style in its builds ranging from 65 to 86 feet, it’s Monte Carlo Yachts. Well the next yacht fulfills all superyacht requirements, starting with LOA. See what we found out when European Editor Alan Harper tested her here.

Otam 80

Our Boat Test of the Otam 80. 

The Otam 80 takes all the horsepower you could want and puts it to the water with surface drives. You don't know what this hot combination can do—until you take the wheel. See what happens here.

Bavaria 450 Coupe

Germany has come to be known for its engineering exports. A company called Bavaria has been building boats for Europe to enjoy for quite some time. And now they’re here. See for yourself.

Marlow Yachts 66E

Our Boat Test of the Marlow Yachts 66E. The Marlow Yachts 66E is a fine, seaworthy vessel. But the detailing and engineering that are generally hallmarks of the Marlow brand push her well beyond such stalwart adjectives.

Beneteau Gran Turismo 40

Our Boat Test of the Beneteau GT40. 

French boatbuilder Beneteau seems to understand the lifespan of its models. And when they hit the reset button on one like this, be ready to be impressed. See what we mean here.

Everglades 435

Our Boat Test of the Everglades 435. 

Florida-built center consoles are not all the same. Some claim pure speed, while some claim rough-water performance. Everglades is ready for action with its new 435. See why here.

Azimut 72 Fly

Our Boat Test of the Azimut 72 Fly. 

European Editor Alan Harper reviews the Azimut 72 Fly and explores how the point where interior volume and performance meet can drive the mind to most pleasant distraction.

Horizon V80

Our Boat Test of the Horizon V80. 

Gather together, everyone, and check out the Horizon V80. Don’t worry, there’s plenty of room. See what we’re talking about here.

Nordhavn 52

Our Boat Test of the Nordhavn 52. 

For cruisers who are in it for the long haul, the Nordhavn 52 is built to last. Get the lowdown on what sets this cruising boat apart from the crowd in our full test here.

Elandra 53 Sport Yacht

Our Boat Test of the Elandra 53 Sport Yacht.

Tiara Q44

Our Boat Test of the Tiara Q44. 

Who better to take you through the capabilities (substantial) and amenities (plenty to go around) of Tiara’s new Q44 than Leon Slikkers of Tiara Yachts. Join Executive Editor Capt. Bill Pike as he joins Slikkers and his team on the Great Lakes. See what happened here.

Viking 80

Our Boat Test of the Viking 80. 

Viking decided to take the Viking 80 in a different direction, one that fits in very well with what we look for in a fishing-ready performer. See what we found out when we put her through her paces here.

MJM 50z

Our Boat Test of the MJM 50z. 

There are those who will tell you displacement speed is the most fuel-efficient way to travel. But back-of-the-envelope calculations may show you that the MJM 50z is the solution for the way you cruise.

Riva Florida 88

European Editor Alan Harper tests the fast, glamorous Riva 88 and finds a yacht that’s nearly impossible not to fall in love with.

Pearl 65

Our Boat Test of the Pearl 65. 

The Pearl 65 is big enough for a captain, but she’s so much fun to drive, we doubt you’ll actually want to hire one.

Hargrave 94

Our Boat Test of the Hargrave 94. 

The Hargrave 94 is as seaworthy as she is luxurious, an impressive combination if there ever was one. Read our full test here.

Sunseeker Predator 57

Our Boat Test of the Sunseeker Predator 57. 

The Sunseeker Predator 57 speaks in many ways to guest comfort, an owner’s pride, and a helmsman’s exhilaration. You’ll know it when you hear it.

Tiara 50 Flybridge

Our Boat Test of the Tiara 50 Flybridge. 

Tiara’s 50 Flybridge is a design-forward, all-purpose cruiser with enough onboard space for the whole family, and then some. Read our full test of her here.

Delta 88

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.
