Sailfish 325DC:
Dual Console for Fish & Friends

Sailfish 325DC
Sailfish 325DC

Regular readers know we like dual console boats, and the bigger the better. They seat more people in comfort than a center console, are dryer, are much better for entertaining, and can be fished almost as well as a center console, save for the walk-around utility of a cc. So, buyers of dual consoles give up one attribute but in return get much more functionality. The Sailfish 325DC has an optional mini-galley with sink, grill, and refrigerator to port amidships. All the usual fishing amenities found on center consoles are here and standard equipment. More...

REGENCY® 220 LE3 Sport:
Not the Same Old Toon

REGENCY 220 LE3 Sport
REGENCY® 220 LE3 Sport

We’ve looked at hundreds of pontoon boats and they are pretty much all the same. But a few stand out. The REGENCY® 220 LE3 Sport is one of them. So, what’s so different about it? 1) Its three toons are powder coated. 2) The toons are 26” (66 cm) in diameter, not 24”-25”(60-63 m) like many toons. 3) The fencing is also powder coated. 4) The changing curtain is standard. 5) It has a standard aft-facing camera. 6) There is dramatic blue indirect light on the outside of the toons and inside the vessel. 7) A snap-in floor mat is standard. 8) An in-deck storage compartment is lighted. 9) There is a 31” (78 cm) wide wheel-chair accessible gate. 10) A large, custom designed four-step powder coated re-boarding ladder is not the usual rinky-dink ladder most builders use. You get the idea. This boat is actually quite different from the other toons that at one quick glance might look the same. More...

Superyacht-Level Finish and Customization

Monte Carlo Yachts 80
Monte Carlo Yachts 80

The MCY 80 from Monte Carlo Yachts has a virtually unlimited selection of interior textures and finishes that owners can choose for their boat, coupled with a flexibility in the interior layout with which the builder encourages custom changes. But the company’s designers have added several desirable features, including doors to both side decks, a roomy and inviting flying bridge, and an intriguing galley layout seen above – all custom.

Sea Ray SLX 350:
Napping Cabin in a Dayboat

Sea Ray SLX 350
Sea Ray SLX 350

The Sea Ray SLX 350 has one of the most comfortable and handsome aft-facing seats in class, in our opinion. Note the raised horizontal cushion position that serves as a “behind the knee” support, and the three-toned upholstery. Under the consoles forward is a head and a napping cabin. The teak decking is optional. Look closely and the “Quiet Ride” plate can be seen on the transom. The Quiet Ride process of building boats actually does make them quieter – we’ve tested it. More...

Cruisers Yachts 60 Fly:
A Gentleman’s Flybridge Cruiser

Cruisers Yachts 60 Fly
Cruisers Yachts 60 Fly

…Let us hasten to point out that the 60 Cantius is for gentle ladies, as well. All of which is to say that the 60 Cantius is an upscale flying bridge cruiser that was designed for lots of entertaining, as well as for gracious cruising for two couples, or a family. The lounge below decks can be converted to a third stateroom. Standard SeaKeeper stabilizers keep guests comfortable underway, and three joystick stations simplify docking for the owner/operator.
