So What Else Is Up?

Slow Your Roll: MJM just added Seakeeper gyro stabilizers standard on its 50z (New Boats, July 2013). That’s a first for the boating world and a boon for anybody who gets green around the gills on the ocean blue.

MAN Power: Elandra announced it’s using twin 800-horsepower MAN R6-800s in its 5 Sport. Managing Director Luke Durman told me the company wanted a boat that could top out at over 30 knots. They expect this one to go 32.
