Beneteau Announces New Oceanis 46.1
Beneteau is introducing a new sailboat model, the Oceanis 46.1, at the Sydney, Australia boat show in early August. The builder says this new boat is a progression of the Oceanis 45, and will have large-yacht features and luxurious amenities for her size.

Formula 34 PC:
Performance Cruiser w/Amenities Galore
To understand the Formula 34 PC, have a look at her swim platform, where owners can spec an optional stainless steel propane grill, as well as a standard hot-and-cold pullout shower. She carries lots of standard equipment, while power options to twin 380-hp MerCruiser, Ilmor, or Volvo Penta engines ensure the she meets Formula’s high performance standards.

Taking Guesswork Out of Boat Design
Cobalt uses feedback from owners of its boats to tune its designs. After all, who knows what works better than an owner? The Cobalt 23SC is a reflection of that process, with its somewhat unusual bow design, which helps increase seating to 12 while retaining a sharp forefoot to reduce pounding in a chop and exaggerated forward chines to keep spray down at all speeds.

Wellcraft 262 Fisherman:
21-Degree Deadrise w/56.8 MPH WOT
When we compare the basic specs of the Wellcraft 262 with other center consoles in her size and price range, we discovered that she falls roughly in the middle of many of them. Her dry weight is 5,500 lbs. (2,494 kg), which places her in the middle of the pack, and her beam of 9’ (2.74 m) is more than the standard 8’6” (2.59 m) but a few inches less than a few. By avoiding the extremes, Wellcraft is aiming at the broad sweet spot in the center of the market.

Ready for Entertainment or Cruising
The Prestige 750 is a 4-stateroom yacht and the largest motoryacht in the brand’s line. She is generally considered to be one of the lowest-priced yachts this size, and for that reason should be inspected by people entering this market for the first time. That way she can become a benchmark against which other vessels this size can be measured. Of course, none of them are cheap.
