Kindred Spirits

At most yards the first step in building a yacht involves rolling out fiberglass mat or cutting huge sheets of metal. At Lazzara Yachts, however, it all starts with pasta.

From contract to completion, the 116-foot flagship of Lazzara Yachts gives new meaning to family time.

Dick and Brad Lazzara, brothers who opened the yard in

ISA 600

Even if you didn't know that the new ISA 600 is an Italian design, you likely would have guessed it. Nearly 200 feet in length and with five decks from her keel to her flying bridge, she looks as sleek as a Formula One race car. A towering bow and deep forward bulwarks virtually disappear as they blend into the deckhouse in way of her upper deck, while elongated side windows and a modest knuckle

Viking 82 Convertible

Sometimes bigger is better. A case in point is Viking Yachts' 82 Convertible, eight feet longer and about two feet beamier than the builder's current flagship 74 Convertible. Don't get me wrong, the 74 is no slouch. But I never warmed to her lower-deck layout, with its meandering passageway along the

After Petroleum, What?

Azimut's fuel cell genset derives energy from gasoline. Future versions will use diesel fuel taken from the boat's diesel fuel tanks.

The days of gasoline and diesel are rapidly coming to an end. With more than a quarter of the northern polar ice cap gone this summer and unprecedented drought in the southeast and west, even Dubya

The Horsepower Equation

"But I like the 1,300-hp motors," my friend Tom says emphatically while discussing his new 50-footer. "They give me a 33-knot cruise. The 1,050-hp ones will only keep me somewhere between 28 and 30," he adds with a sigh. "What's wrong with 30 knots?" I retort. "Nothing," he replies, "but the bigger motors give me 33 knots!" You can see where this conversation was going. Tom is also restoring a

Marquis 40 SC

Wisconsin-based Marquis Yachts prides itself on its American-built boats with European style, and the 40 SC seems the epitome of what the company has set out to achieve.

The styling is sharp, if a bit futuristic, with everything from the backrest of the bench-style helm chair to the corner moldings on the

Still Waters Run Deep

A few years back, a good friend of mine struck out in his first-ever billfish tournament. Now, he's no amateur. He was born on a boat (literally), manages a marina, and has helped his commercial-captain father run vessels offshore for as long as he can remember. But by the time the tournament came to an end, he was beat. Exhilarated? Yes, but completely and utterly exhausted. He'd spent several

Grady-White Canyon 336

Less Barebones, More Fish Bones

The striped bass in Albemarle Sound have a new enemy in North Carolina builder Grady-White's new Canyon 336. Built as a fish chaser, the 33-footer has an optional T-top that includes radial outriggers, net stowage, and molded-in fore and aft spreader lights. Aft

Monte Fino 76 Custom Motoryacht

Most builders update styling periodically to keep models looking fresh. But the revitalized Monte Fino has taken the makeover to a new level. The handsome but somewhat staid look that defined the brand over the past decade has been transformed, creating a svelte charmer that would be the envy of any Italian design studio. Partnering with Humphreys Yacht Design, Monte Fino intends to redesign

Krogen 55 Expedition Trawler Yacht

Updated styling and a gracefully raked bow are two of the more evident features of the Krogen 55-foot Expedition, but they're just icing on the cake. Leveraging 30 years' experience in building bluewater passagemakers, Kadey-Krogen has raised the bar, offering a purebred expedition-style trawler of superior accommodation that boasts a cruising range of more than 3,000 NM.

Aicon 75 Fly

Aicon 75 Fly

A Slice of Sicilian Fly

Built in Aicon's Giammoro factory in Messina on the Island of Sicily, the 75 Fly has styling that is distinctly Italian, from her lines to her leather. But her most prominent feature is an extended radar arch overhang that shades her flying bridge. With the push of a button, the canvas
