The new custom Spencer 87, Betsy, shows how far convertible design and construction have come.
Custom yachts by definition are born in that ineffable realm between what’s been done before and what could still yet be accomplished. They push the envelope, and the results aren’t always good. Sometimes owners go too far afield and their vision simply doesn’t translate. Or a builder stretches its capabilities to the limit and the outcome can be a nasty, sordid affair with rooms full of lawyers and buckets of bad blood. I never know exactly what I’ll find when I take a custom sportfish out for a sea trial...

Riviera broadens the appeal of its 61 Series II beyond her angling origins.
One of the little bits of black magic that’s part of boatbuilding is knowing when to mess with success. That is to say, when you’ve got a well-received boat that’s still selling well, how do you know when it’s time to replace or redesign it? And an even more critical question: How much should you change it? Too much and you may lose the boat’s constituency; too little and you run the risk of it going stale.
