The Affinity 90 should definitely turn heads when she pulls into port. Part yacht, part sportfisherman, she's not only fast and comfortable, she reportedly eats waves too. At 90 feet overall with a beam of 23 feet, she offers plenty of room to move around in. At
Our first look at the Nimbus 365 Coupe. This handy pocket cruiser offers up some big-boat cruising features. It may mean this Nimbus 365 may be a boat you’ll want to move up into—or down into, depending on your starting point. Have a closer look at the low-maintenance design here.More
The design tenets established by the late Jack Hargrave are the underpinnings for Hargrave Custom Yachts. To see how those precepts continue to translate to great boats today, look no further than the used-boat listings, where this Hargrave 109 was still wowing them.More
The first thing you'll notice when you examine the photo of the new 44 Sojourn is that she's tall: 16'7'' feet from the waterline to the top of her aluminum radar arch, to be exact. According to Carver, the rationale behind her commanding height is to increase the "usability" of the living spaces
The new Jarrett Bay 77 will be a force to be reckoned with. Packing 2,400-hp MTUs, she's predicted to reach a top speed of 42 knots or nearly 50 mph, downright impressive for a 77-footer that tips the scales at about 60 tons, not counting fuel, water, or provisions. Even throttled back, she should cruise at 37 knots, or better than 42 mph.
It's not just MTU
While C. Raymond Hunt Associates has developed projects of up to 100 feet and more, the Hunt 52 will be the largest yacht under the Hunt Yachts brand. Half again as long as the current flagship Harrier 36, the 52 is nonetheless recognizable from the distinctive lines of her classic Ray Hunt-inspired deep-V hull, which is capped by a sweeping, unbroken sheerline.
I consider myself an evolving environmentalist, although my wife has to occasionally remind me to recycle cardboard cereal boxes and defunct newspapers, and my nostalgia for old-fashioned boatyard fragrances like red-lead primer and tung-oil varnish continues unabated. While progress on the evolutionary has been slow though, it’s also been sure. For months now,
On November 4, we head to the polls with a most important aim: to elect the 44th President of the United States. And while our new commander in chief will bring much to the position that is decidedly his own--fresh policies, different
If you’re considering a ‘round-the-world cruise, Nordhavn’s new 87'1/4-foot trawler might be just the ticket. The builder says that she should have a 4,000-NM range at 10.5 knots with the help of twin MTU Series 60 diesel inboards. A pair of 48-inch wheels attached to four-inch shafts shouldn’t hurt efficiency either.
In a world that seems increasingly driven by corporate interests, it’s gratifying to know that there are still family-run businesses that have thrived for several generations. Nothing can rival the pride and commitment that stems from a sense of family heritage. Hakvoort Shipyard, founded in the Netherlands some 85 years ago, is a prime example, and its latest tri-deck motoryacht, Pretty Woman,
One of the most important parameters in yacht design is the intended maximum speed. If the hull is meant to be capable of exceeding its theoretical hull speed, then it generally has a hard chine, to make the water separate from the hull at speed, and flatter sections near the stern to keep the vessel from squatting in her own wake. But if design speed is less than or equal to hull speed, then she
During the 17th century, the Netherlands produced some of the most gifted painters. Now, a collaboration among yachtbuilder Jongert, Azure Naval Architects, and stylist Guido de Groot may be part of the next wave of Dutch Masters. At the least, the striking profile of the Jongert 3900 is certain to turn heads wherever she goes.
One of my boating buddies made a remark the other day that had a strange but true ring to it. "Bill," he said, "it seems like there's some kind of theme runnin' through your life these days—you got a boat that's an awful lot like your car." We'd been riding around for much of the morning in my silver Toyota Prius, affectionately known as the Tin Mullet, and now we were riding around
I was attending a press conference in Ancona, Italy, earlier this year when I first heard the news. Norberto Ferretti, co-founder of Ferretti Yachts and president of the Ferretti Group, announced that the Group had just launched a hybrid-powered
This is the editorial I've been avoiding: the one about the cost of fuel and what, if anything, we can do about it. As a boat owner like you, who's been shocked so often at the fuel dock I'm beginning to feel like a cow at a slaughterhouse, I know the subject demands attention. But what to say?

To showcase its Prestige line of motoryachts and express cruisers, French boatbuilder Jeanneau welcomes select guests to its impressive factory in Les Herbiers in western France. Prospective boat buyers, dealers, and a few lucky journalists got a glimpse of the entire boatbuilding process from the design and engineering studios to the yard where the boats are loaded for truck delivery.
