I was sitting on the foredeck of the trimaran as we passed Isla Tortuga (Turtle Island) and spied the sunbathing California sea lions that make an annual...
My roots are in runabouts—I've built a few, owned more, and enjoyed 'em all. So I was plenty excited as photographer Jeffery Salter and...
I found the town of Southport, North Carolina, somewhat by accident. It was May 2005, and I was taking the company boat, a Luhrs 41 Convertible, up to New York from Florida. It was a long trip, and since no one editor could be...
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...
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.
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...
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
