New Boats At Miami Boat Show

The 2005 Miami Boat Show just ended with 145,000 people attending over 5 days. BoatTEST Publishing tested a total of 13 new models, including 2 new yachts from Sabre, one from Back Cove, and 10 new fishing boats powered with Honda outboards.

We'll keep you posted as these tests and videos go live online, but in the meantime, here are a few brand new models that were introduced at the Miami show.


Tiara Yachts Sovran 4000

The all new Tiara Sovran 4000 with Volvo Penta's Inboard Performance System challenges every assumption about what a boat can be by changing the whole future of onboard performance while elevating enjoyment of the boating experience to a new level.

On the Sovran 4000, dramatically reduced noise and vibration allow conversations in comfort while underway. Because Volvo Penta's IPS releases up to 25% fewer emissions, owners enjoy diesel power performance, economy and durability without exhaust smoke, noise or vibration. In fact, Volvo Penta's IPS in the Tiara Sovran 4000 delivers 25% better fuel efficiency resulting in fewer trips to the fuel dock, increased speed, acceleration and extended cruising range.


Just Tested! Triton 351 CC

If big fish and blue water are on your agenda, for say, the next couple of decades, then you deserve to head offshore aboard a new Triton 351CC... the biggest, boldest bluewater boat Triton has ever built! This rugged 35-foot center console has it all. The open, uncluttered layout is a study in versatility. It's equally suited to a caster or jig fisherman as it is to the guy who trolls a six-rod spread.

Triton designers made the most of the broad ten-foot beam with plenty of integrated storage, a huge high output baitwell, plus china head and sink below the console. Yet of all the outstanding features on the 351CC, there's one which will leave an indelible impression... its ability to handle a sea.

With triple Honda 225-hp four-stroke outboards on the back, the 351 delivered a top-end speed in excess of 57 mph. And thanks to her big Carolina-flared bow, she returned from a photo shoot in 4-6 foot seas with no salt on her windshield! Look for test results and video shortly on this new offshore fishing machine. 

All-New 2005 Meridian 341

With the introduction of the all-new 341 Sedan, Meridian Yachts is proving once again that it is the one builder truly dedicated to the cruising enthusiast. Like all Meridian Yachts, this model offers the perfect blend of luxurious cruising comfort and on-the-water performance. Whether standing at the helm or sitting comfortably in the spacious salon, the all-new 341 Sedan gives you a view of the world like no other boat in her class. It's a new level of cruising comfort and performance. And it's standard from Meridian.


This new yacht replaces the earlier 341 we tested back in 2002 when the Meridian brand of yachts was first introduced. Look for an upcoming test on this yacht in the near future 

Trophy 1901 Bay Pro

Trophy is entering the bay-boat market with the new 1901 Bay Pro. Designed to get anglers into the backcountry and skinny water, this shallow-draft boat can be tricked out with everything you need for bonefishing. With front and back fishing platforms, cast-net storage, right-placed baitwells and low gunwhales, the 1901 is ready to sneak up on bones and redfish.

This boat is SO new it is not yet on Trophy's site, but we'll keep you posted when it does go live.
