Heesen launches a 47-meter

Catch Some Air

The Netherlands-based Heesen Yachts has delivered the 47-meter (154-foot) Air (above), the sixth 47-meter in the series (the sistership to 2009’s Blind Date, 2008’s Elandess), and has three more currently under construction.

She has many classic megayacht

Moonen and Shakin'

I’ve known people who seem to never sleep and yet accomplish a variety of tasks with equal skill and ability. The designers and builders at Moonen certainly seem to fit into that class of people. Though the yard is best known for pocket-size megayachts (see last month’s “Small Wonder”), classifying Moonen yachts will be harder in the future as the shipyard has

Bertram 540

Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks? The Bertram 540 is a modern-day version of the much-loved original Bertram 54 and retains the 54’s famously sharp bow, long waterline, and deep-V hull, which combine to make the boat handle well in open water. Bertram also claims that the 540’s single, centerline fuel tank creates a zero-trim effect that should

Conch 44

He who possesses the conch possesses the power. While the preceding sentence may be a major plot point in the William Golding classic Lord of the Flies, it may very soon apply to the world of tournament fishing as well. That’s because R & R Boatworks is introducing the Conch 44, a serious fishing boat for the serious fisherman. She is based on the famous

Regulator 28 FS

From Regulator, the Edenton, North Carolina, company that prides itself on building boats with “legendary rides,” comes the 28 FS. Originally concieved as a step-up from the company’s popular 26-foot model—but with added amenities such as fold-down transom seating—this is a sleek, no-frills center console that is sure to tantalize any hardcore fisherman. Her

Sea Force IX 91.5

Sometimes a fishing boat is more than just a fishing boat. Sometimes it is a personal statement announcing the owner’s sense of sophistication and elegance. The new Sea Force IX 91.5 Skybridge Sport Yacht may represent the apotheosis of just such a boat. She is more than 91 feet long and sports an enormous enclosed flying bridge with another fully equipped helm

Viking 42 Convertible

From out of South Jersey comes another Viking build that may be destined to become a classic. Although she is the smallest Viking, the 42 has a big attitude. With aggressively raked lines and a dark visor contrasting with her expansive foredeck, the 42 certainly looks ready to rumble offshore. And a cockpit with a built-in mezzanine, a transom door with lift gate,

Hemingway’s Pilar

Two serendipitous (but very different) meetings with the most famous sportfishing vessel of all time—Hemingway’s Pilar. The year was 1992, and I was in Cuba working on a magazine story about marinas and other aspects of the Cuban marine scene.

Ocean Alexander 90

The 30-year-old boatbuilder Ocean Alexander is introducing a 90-footer that looks and feels like a much larger yacht. A wide 22-foot beam produces an airy feel throughout the vessel, particularly in her main saloon where oversized windows create an interior that is awash in sunlight.

Luhrs 37 IPS

With its new 37 IPS, Luhrs has set out to prove that big things really can come in smaller packages. The boat is the first in the builder’s Canyon Series line, which Luhrs claims is the only group of sportfishing boats under 39 feet that can boast two staterooms and two heads. As such, the 37 aims to compete with other convertibles that might dwarf her in size

Carver 44 Sojourn

Webster’s Dictionary defines “sojourn” as “a brief or temporary stay; a visit,” which makes the word a fitting moniker for this 44-footer from Carver, the Pulaski, Wisconsin, company known for producing cruising boats outfitted with interiors with surprisingly large amounts of room. The 44, which can be outfitted with joystick controlled IPS pods, has loads of

Coastal Craft 450 IPS

Founded in 1997, Coastal Craft is a British Columbia company that specializes in creating aluminum-hull boats, has a new flagship—the 450 IPS—and by all accounts she lives up to the company’s reputation for sturdy, comfortable builds. She also sports some performance features that are fairly impressive, particularly for a cruiser. Coastal Craft builds the 450 with

Sasga 12

Holding with the strong undercurrent of nostalgia in today’s boating environment, Barracuda Yacht Design will soon unveil the Sasga 12, a “Balearic-style” motoryacht which is inspired by traditional Menorcan fishing rowboats commonly known as Llats. The two keys to the resemblance between the boats are the Sasga’s rounded stern section and her distinctive beam,
