Dedicated to Powerboats 30' to 80' Powered by BoatTEST.com
Having founded “Power And Motoryacht” in 1984, been an owner of powerboats 19' to 91', and an observer of them for 38 years, I am dedicated to providing you information and insight that will help you buy smarter and better enjoy your boat.
We are building a data base on-line of 30'+ powerboats that you can access 24/7 that will have the latest news, boat reviews, opinions and insights into powerboats 30' to 80'. We will help you be a better informed buyer and we hope to encourage you to use and enjoy your boat more than you already do.
“Offshore Motoryacht” is not for everyone. Below, you can select the newsletters you wish to receive. We hope you join us for the ride!
We spent a week cruising on each one of these popular express cruisers in Maine last August. Both are 2003 models and are privately owned. The Sunseeker 44 is no longer in production and the Sabre 42 has been modified here and there since this boat was built. Nevertheless, the compromises and trade-offs seen in these two vessels are typical for these type and size boats. Take a look at the videos below, we don't think you've ever seen anything like them—
Pick the STYLE that suites your aesthetic boating eye
The HELM is the most important place for serious boaters
Make sure INSTRUMENT placement is smart
COMPANION seating is important
Check the functionality of your BRIDGE DECK

The new Regal 52' is hot and the builder is increasing production.
After running an article on the Regal 5260 last week a spokesman for the company (Regal) called to say that the boat is not actually being sold “factory-direct.” Orders for the boat and all of the paperwork must be filled out at the local Regal dealership and the local dealer will be responsible for customer service after delivery. However, the Regal factory will deliver the boat and customers will deal with the factory on all customizing aspects of the boat. Dealers won't have to inventory the boat.
