We tracked down the inside scoop on what boatbuilders are up to next.
Fjord launched its sleek, highly stylized 48 Open this past January in Dusseldorf, with a U.S. debut tentatively slated for this summer. Though the builder has been unusually quiet about the launch to date, one company insider told me that the model should be able to do 40 knots with the hammer down, and also will have surprisingly leggy range for a dayboat. A hydraulic swim platform will make launching water toys a piece of cake, which makes sense considering the fun island-hopping trips this boat will most likely be used for. Sounds nice doesn’t it?
U.S.Debut: Summer 2015
