The Altima 61 Pilothouse is a scaled-up version of the builder's 56 Pilothouse. But the addition of 5'1" did not necessitate a significant increase in either clearance or freeboard—the freeboard of 7'7" forward and 5'5" aft remains the same, while the clearance to the top of the radar arch increased three
Given how the megayacht business is still strong despite weakness in some of the world's economies, it's no wonder that there's an increasing number of shipyards vying for contracts. Some of the players are long-established, while others are taking their first steps into yacht construction.
That's one of the reasons why every August we publish the Megayacht Builder Directory, a compendium
Long established as a builder of motoryachts and expedition vessels, Northern Marine has introduced its latest long-range cruiser, a 64-foot raised-pilothouse trawler. Her systems are designed to be serviceable in remote areas, while her bottom is a resin-infused, solid-fiberglass laminate, reinforced with Kevlar around the bulbous bow. Protecting the keel is a 12-inch-wide steel shoe extending
Say what you will about contemporary styling and fads, but judging by what's often seen at boat shows and marinas, they appeal to lots of folks. So it's gratifying to see an offering like the Stanley 42, a boat that exudes the timeless, tug-at-your-heartstrings beauty and grace that define the Down East style. And it's no surprise that she's built by John Williams Boat Company, an iconic Maine
In part one of our exclusive five-part series ("A Boat Is Born"), the Makaira team took the first conceptual steps in creating its brand-new sportfisherman. This included selecting the Waveform variable-deadrise hull shape, a design the team hopes will help the vessel achieve speeds in excess of those of her peers in the
For a long time there has been a stigma attached to motorsailers: They're neither good motoryachts nor good sailboats. But in a world where "going green" has become a chief concern and "the rising price of fuel" has become a clich, many manufacturers of both boats and engines are looking toward hybrid machines. And although most motoryacht builders are still staying clear of sail power in favor
The Global Arrow 68 Express is the newest offering from Taiwan-based Global Yacht. The low-sheer, rakish design, courtesy of C. Raymond Hunt Associates, also comes in a flying-bridge version called the Global Arrow 68 FB. Aside from the added space, weight, and vertical clearance the flying bridge brings and
The space-conscious layout of the Cranchi Zaffiro 36 begins in the cockpit, where the L-shape settee flips forward to allow access to the engine compartment. A molded step and and a hollow under the helm give more headroom to the full-beam master stateroom below. The entrance to the interior is to port via a garage-style aluminum
It's unusual for this column to feature the same yacht for a second time, but the story behind Richmond Yachts is unusual enough to justify a reprise. Ever since Texas businessman and lifelong yachtsman Don Davis took over the British Columbia-based yard (then named Sovereign Yachts) a few years ago, he had a broad ambition: to bring the same level of quality and innovation to the yachting scene
It's been a long time in gestation: Seaforth Marine built the first Tradition a few years ago, a lovely 54-foot prototype that has been redesigned, morphing into the flagship 58, slated to debut in Annapolis later this year. She's a serious long-range, deep-ocean passagemaker with robust, reliable mechanical systems and all the amenities necessary for extended voyaging.
Welcome to the first of a five-part series in which we follow the creation of a brand-new sportfishing boat from conception to launch. PMY has been granted exclusive access to the birth of Makaira. For now we‘ll keep its parent company anonymous, but as we get closer to launch, we will reveal it. Of course, we'll conclude the series with an exclusive first test of this exciting new
She may not have been sporting her optional Bausch-American tuna tower at her Miami boat show debut, but what the Turkish-built Vicem 63 Sportfish lacked in aluminum, she more than made up for in woodwork. Besides teak—found throughout the cockpit and in some motifs in the interior—Ducia and Kyaha
Thinking of a unique name for your new boat can be tough, that's why we created a Boat Name Generator.
