trend that went high-profile when sailboat builders like Little
Harbor and Hinckley successfully introduced powerboats in the
late 1980s and early `90s continues. This year saw the

42, and Island Packet's Packet Craft 360 Express, to name
just three. Meanwhile, the originators of the trend continue
to add new models. What do we think? More power to `em.
