Aicon 85

In 2001 Aicon made a big splash with its debut model, a 56-foot, flying-bridge cruiser. Well-received at the 2001 Genoa boat show, the 56 was named “International Boat of the Year” at the 2002 Cannes boat show in France and helped establish the Italian yard as a promising new builder in a competitive field.

Aicon hopes the accolades will

Propeller-less Propulsion

Ever since the paddlewheel gave way to the screw propeller, there has been little fundamental change in the way that ships and boats are propelled through the water.

Although she’s one of the shorter offerings in Horizon’s line of Taiwanese-built motoryachts (which includes models ranging from 62 to more than 130 feet), the new 68 delivers an impressively long list of features and amenities.

Sol Ambition

Outer Reef 80 Raised Pilothouse

Some people think “classic” and “stylish” are at opposite ends of the spectrum, i.e., traditional versus modern. However, some classics never go out of style, like two-seater sports cars and the basic black cocktail dress. Among the ranks of these durable classic styles is the raised-pilothouse

A New Standard

A few years ago, Tom Murphy was pretty sure he wanted absolutely nothing to do with Hargrave Custom Yachts.

A few months ago, having spent two years working with Murphy, Hargrave Custom Yachts was pretty sure it never wanted to deal with another yacht owner like him again.

Piece(s) de Resistance

Who among us isn’t keenly interested in acquiring something new or different? When it comes to the amenities aboard your yacht, this can translate to something as simple as taking the latest home trend or a familiar object from land-based life and incorporating it—with a twist, of course—into offshore living.

San Juan 40 Fly Bridge

San Juan 40 Fly Bridge

It's abundantly clear that San Juan Yachts has found a look and a style to stay with. Each model, from the 30-foot Express to the 48-foot Fly Bridge, retains the distinctive air of the original San Juan 38.

You're at the broker's sales dock, looking at a glistening yacht thinking, "You know, this boat has me written all over it." Without a second thought, you race up the boarding steps and clamber aboard. Yes!
