The BN 7x50 DCM from Minox might just be the ultimate on-the-water pair of binoculars. In addition to being buoyant and waterproof to 16.5 feet, they are filled with nitrogen gas to prevent fogging. The binoculars feature a multifunction display where at the push of a button a digital compass, thermometer, barometer, stopwatch, or tilt display is shown on the inside the ocular, and they have a non-slip rubber coating for a better grip when using them in the rain or sporty seas.
The Nordhavn Yachts 59 Coastal Pilot was filled with capacity crowds during her east coast debut at the Newport International Boat Show. That attention, we learned, was well deserved.
