Ilmor One Drive on Formula 370 SS:
Exciting 2 x 483 hp & Confident Joystick Control
A pair of 483-hp Ilmor MV8 7.4L engines are linked to the smooth shifting One Drive sterndrives to deliver their power to the Formula 370 SS. Our test boat was also equipped with Ilmor’s One Touch joystick system and innovative MERLIN Digital Dashboard, which allowed even better engine control.
Have a close look at this power package here.
New Test Video
A Next-Generation Flybridge Cruiser
The Prestige 520 shows how French boatbuilder Jeanneau works to evolve its line of luxury motor yachts, with innovative improvements throughout the build. With Volvo Penta IPS600s, she was well mannered around the dock and “rock-solid stable” in a seaway according to our test captain.

Monte Carlo Yachts 76:
Luxury Interiors in a Versatile Layout
The plush master suite of the Monte Carlo Yachts 76 takes advantage of her 18'6'' (5.65 m) beam, as well as the company’s signature hullside windows that bring in plenty of light. From embossed leather bulkhead finishes to decks covered in treated Italian leather -- shoes off, please! -- her style is available in a three- or four-stateroom layout.
See the sumptuous interiors here.
Yamaha 242 Limited S:
Quiet Ride in a Speedy Twin Jet
The Yamaha 242 Limited S is larger than most jet boats at 24' (7.32 m) LOA, but she's fast and agile thanks to her twin 1812-cc Yamaha Marine High Output jet systems. She's quieter than earlier twin jet models, and the Articulating Keel steering provided good tracking and cornering.
See how she behaved on our test here.
MAKO® 334 CC:
Fast Fisherman w/Standard Tower
For those who just have to be first to the fish, the MAKO® 334 CC delivers: She turned in an impressive 64.4 mph in our test runs, powered by triple Mercury Verado 350s. Just as important, she's got more than 400 miles of range at a fast cruise, 29.8 mph. We tested the Sportfish edition, which offers the fiberglass hardtop and upper helm as standard, but there’s more to this boat than that.
Come along on our full test here.
