Weaver 80

Our Boat Test of the Weaver 80.

Aspen C100

Power & Motoryacht's Boat Test of the Aspen C100. 

The Aspen C100 is a multihull but it's not a catamaran. It's a proa, which means the hulls don't match—and there's only one engine. The result? Surprising levels of efficiency. See what we mean here.

Grand Banks 46 Eastbay FB

Our Boat Test of the Grand Banks 46 Eastbay FB.

Townsend Bell and the Beneteau Barracuda 9

Arcadia 115
