Cruisers Yachts 46 Cantius:
Sleek Express w/14’6” Beam

Cruisers Yachts 46 Cantius
Cruisers Yachts 46 Cantius

The Cruisers Yachts 46 Cantius has the sleek lines of a European express cruiser, but her 14’6” (4.42 m) beam allows roomy accommodations for four belowdecks in the en suite master and the VIP at the bow. Note the size of the hullside windows, bringing lots of light below. Power is twin 435-hp Volvo Penta diesels. More...

Ocean Alexander 100 Skylounge

The salon and dining area of the Ocean Alexander 100 Skylounge takes full advantage of her 23-foot (7.01 m) beam, while elegant soffit treatments overhead complement the wood and marble of the décor below. Frameless casements supported by aluminum beams allow some of the largest windows in class.

Chaparral 191 SunCoast:
Sporty Handling, Seats for 12

Chaparral 191 SunCoast
Chaparral 191 SunCoast

Powered with a Yamaha F115, the Chaparral 191 SunCoast had a time to plane of 4.4 seconds. In choppy conditions, she acquitted herself well in our test, with her sharp bow cutting through the waves and the 18-degree deadrise softening the ride. She has seating for 12, equivalent to pontoon boats of equal size, but she has more eye appeal and is more fun to drive. More...

Pronautica 29 Open:
Ultra-Fast Acceleration w/2x Suzuki 350s

Pronautica 29 Open
Pronautica 29 Open

The new Pronautica 29 Open is the first boat we have tested with twin Suzuki 350-hp duoprop outboard engines. This engine model is the only one on the market with duo-props and they paid off with a time to plane of just 2.7 seconds and a 0-to-30 time of 6.8 seconds. The boat is built in Brazil and has a number of design aspects that we think anglers will like. Perhaps best of all is her price tag. More...

Manitou 23 Encore SHP:
Evinrude E-TEC G2 150 H.O. Outboard
and Monohull Maneuverability

Manitou 23 Encore SHP
Manitou 23 Encore SHP

The Manitou 23 Encore SHP uses her single Evinrude E-TEC G2 150 H.O. in conjunction with a tritoon design equipped with lifting strakes and “barracuda” nose cones equipped with multiple spray rails. The result is performance to the “toon” of 36.8 mph and responsive handling that lets the owner drive her like a monohull boat. Yet she has plush, L-shaped seats in all four corners for a dozen guests. Check out all the details here...

What You Need to Know About Livewells for Bay Boats

Equipment Advisor
A good livewell helps keep bait fresh and frisky.

Bay and flats boats are designed to chase game fish wherever they hide. And the target species often are found where the feeding is good. The bait that anglers carry aboard can make all the difference in the world, so it’s best to take care of it with a properly outfitted livewell. More...
