Dusky 278 Open Fisherman:

Dusky 278 Open Fisherman

The installation of twin 150-hp Evinrude E-TEC G2 H.O. outboards on the Dusky 278 Open Fisherman has plenty of space on the Dusky Drive bracket to access the engines when necessary, or to step easily onto a dock, since the rigging for each engine is contained completely in a single tube. At WOT she ran 45.4 mph. At best cruise she got a total of 2.6 mpg. Note the upswept sheer on the bow, and the chine reaching far forward, for better spray protection. More...

Sea-Doo Spark Trixx
Sea-Doo Spark Trixx

The agile Sea-Doo Spark Trixx welcomes trying a few tricks, including some that may end with you in the water, but that's part of the fun, our test rider reports. This PWC has entry-level pricing, but many added features like the company's IBR intelligent braking and reverse system, off-throttle steering, adjustable handle bars and extended range trim give it an upscale ride.
