Destinations To Die For: Greenport, New York

Preston's marine-supply store in Greenport's Harbor Wharf opened in 1880.

I first became smitten with Greenport, New York, after my friend Caroline was married there a few years ago. The wedding took place in a small, white chapel in this historic fishing village, and the...

Destinations To Die For: New York, New York

Pedestrians and cars alike traverse the Brooklyn (background) and Manhattan Bridges, each more than 100 years old, every day.

Full disclosure: I'm a born and bred New Yorker, so perhaps you native Floridians (if there are such things) or Californians may find me biased.

Destinations To Die For: Panama City, Florida

The Panama City Beach area is loaded with quiet bayous and creeks.

I guess there's some disagreement over whether newspaperman Howell Raines actually coined the term Redneck Riviera to describe the swathe of beaches and communities on the southern fringe of Florida's...

Tough Trip to Charleston

The view from Betty Jane's wheelhouse while we were southbound on the ICW on a showery day.

Things got off to a mangy start. Right in the middle of breakfast, my buddy Chuck called from Florida saying he'd missed his flight—something about being "sicker than a dog" and trying

Errol Flynn Marina, Jamaica

To say that the actor Errol Flynn had an eye for the ladies is like saying the artist Jackson Pollack had an appreciation for paint. While much has been made of Flynn's wicked, wicked ways (a phrase he proudly used as the title of his autobiography), his passion for the sea was just as great. In fact, he often took the helm of his yacht Zaca, a 118-foot

Desirable Destination: British Columbia

Sensational Sunlight | August

Obviously the ideal time to cruise the waters of British Columbia and Southeast Alaska is during the summer. The weather is mild, the days are long, and animals are literally everywhere you turn. And because Prince Rupert, British Columbia, is the perfect jumping-off point for exploring the waters of

Desirable Destinations

We editors sure do get around. Each year we travel all over the globe for boat tests, new-vessel launches, boat shows, plant tours, press events, and more. (Phew!)

Hey—we're not compaining. Although we've been known on occasion to forget what time zone we're in (and a passport, here and there), we get to see some really cool places and cruise some of the most amazing waterways in the

Desirable Destination: St. Barts

The Cannes of the Caribbean | December

See if any of the following sounds familiar: You tune in to “Access Hollywood” ostensibly to keep track of who your kids think are cool, but in reality, you do it to see if Diddy will show pictures from his latest charter vacation. You circle names in the Forbes 400 list based on who owns a

Desirable Destination: Monaco

The Magnificent Med | May

Think of Monaco, and if you’re of a certain generation, more than likely you recall the wedding of Prince Rainier and Grace Kelly. You may even remember that a few days before the two ceremonies in 1956 (one civil, one religious), the Hollywood actress and her wedding party sailed into the harbor aboard

Desirable Destination: Massachusetts

Timeless Beauty | June

Quite honestly, I enjoy cruising just about anywhere in Massachusetts during the summer, which is one of the reasons I’ve been doing it my whole life. (I was also born and raised there, but that’s beside the point.) From the quaintness of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket to the historic-laden shores of
