Spencer 70

Triple Threat

Volvo Penta and Spencer Yachts reunite to build another breakthrough IPS boat, and this time it’s a 70-footer.

At Spencer, high-tech boats are built in much the same way traditional wooden boats were.

In a bay in a boatyard in Manns Harbor, North Carolina, a 70-foot custom sportfisherman is

ACY 68

How often does the builder of a sportfisherman have to qualify a recorded top end of 43 knots?

American Custom Yachts (ACY), known for building some of the world’s fastest battlewagons, did just that, explaining that while it recorded that number, it was still fine-tuning the props on its new 68 to eke out even more speed. Indeed, ACY says it

A Peaceful Easy Feeling

This Asian import is aimed at cruising your worries away.

With more than 5,000 vessels delivered, to say that Cheoy Lee is an experienced boatbuilder would be a massive understatement. The company has constructed bluewater sailboats, fishing trawlers, tugboats, and of course, yachts. For the last several years,

The Single-Hander of Vero Beach

How one man built a 40-ton steel trawler with little more than a stout heart, two hands, a welding machine, and a Toyota forklift.


In a way, the whole thing began in Belize over a decade ago. Gil Devenport, an average Joe from Vero Beach, Florida, with none of the obvious attributes of a muscle-bound superhero (like hulking

Warwick 55-meter Motoryacht

You expect to see innovation all over a new boat, but in the placement of the deck furniture? Well, even standard features such as this got a rethink on this 55-meter (180-foot) design from Warwick Yachts. The New Zealand builder cast off the typical centerline bench-style settee on the aft deck in favor of two C-shape settees in the corners of the bulwarks. The

Sessa C43

Sometimes looks aren’t deceiving. This boat really is fast.

Italian builders are well known for their stylish exterior lines and opulent interiors, but because of that people sometimes assume that these builders have neglected other things—like performance. Sessa’s C43 stops such conjectures
