Boat Tests

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.

Custom Line Navetta 28

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.

Hunt 80

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.

Azimut Atlantis 43

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.

Cruisers 60 Cantius

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.

Prestige 750

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.

Carver C43

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.

Kadey-Krogen 55 Expedition

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.

Hunt 32CC

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.

Wider 32

Our Boat Test of the Wider 32. 

The Wider 32 is a high-end little vessel for serious boaters. And though she may look unorthodox at first, there’s a method to her madness.

Grand Banks 55 Aleutian RP

Our Boat Test of the Grand Banks 55 Aleutian RP. 

With a straightforward propulsion package, a time-tested hullform, and an artisanally crafted interior, the Grand Banks 55 Aleutian RP delivers the goods in a very far-flung locale.

Dyna 60

Our Boat Test of the Dyna 60. 

With lots of attention paid to design and detail, the Dyna 60 is a boat that just might take you by surprise. Especially when you consider her price.

Austin Parker 64 Fly S

Our Boat Test of the Austin Parker 64 Fly S. 

The Austin Parker 64 Fly S may have roots extending back to the working lobster boats of Maine, but it’s hard to be sure considering she’s got so much European style. However, she definitely retains the seakeeping characteristics of those trustworthy vessels.

Oceanic 90 STS Expedition Yacht

Our boat test of the Oceanic 90 STS Expedition Yacht. 

The Oceanic 90 STS Expedition Yacht may be built for the long haul and some big-time adventures, but that doesn't mean her builders skimped on onboard comforts.

Azimut 50

Our Boat Test of the Azimut 50. 

A lot is expected from a 50-foot boat. And Azimut was up to the challenge with its 50, which we found to have comfort, speed, and lots of good looks.

Bavaria Virtess 420 Coupe

Our Boat Test of the Bavaria Virtess 420 Coupe.  

German boatbuilder Bavaria Yachts has quite a following in Europe. And with three staterooms in a boat under 45 feet LOA, it’s not hard to understand why.
