Robalo 246 Cayman SD:
Multi-Function Aft Platform

Robalo 246 Cayman SD
Robalo 246 Cayman SD

The aft casting platform of the Robalo 246 Cayman SD has a lot to offer an inshore angler. The twin 30-gallon (114 L) insulated livewells each have a light, dedicated aerator/raw water pump, and a divider so that bait can be separated from fish. Add ice and either one can double as a fishbox. A hatch on the port corner opens to a locker sized to stow a 5-gallon (18.9 L) bucket. With the outboard in the down position, a filler piece can be placed to cover a portion of the splash well, giving anglers more footroom. The aft bench-style jump seat, underneath the platform, is wide enough for two passengers and its central location tends to be a drier place to sit compared to side jump seats. More...

In the three-stateroom model of the Monte Carlo Yachts 76, the elegant master stateroom and its spacious head occupy nearly half of the belowdecks guest area. The same style of textured teak and leather seen from the main deck above is repeated in this deck. Indirect overhead lighting highlights the volume of this accommodation. The dual head is aft, adding separation of the sleeping quarters from the engine room. A four-stateroom layout, with a somewhat smaller master, is also available. More...

The Formula 330 Crossover Bowrider becomes a viable weekender and multi-season dayboat with the optional radar mast, hardtop, and full canvas.

Riviera 52 Enclosed Flybridge:
Engineered for a Salt-Free Engine Room

Riviera 52 Enclosed Flybridge
Riviera 52 Enclosed Flybridge

The Riviera 52 Enclosed Flybridge is built for extended offshore operation as well as comfortable cruising. Note how the engine room air intakes are located high on the super structure rather than in the hull sides as on many boats in class. The higher they are off the water, the less salt spray will get into the engine room to cause corrosion. The engine room is also kept dry via a commercial-grade ventilation and demister system.

Fishy and Trailerable Economy Pontoon

SUN TRACKER BASS BUGGY 18 DLX
SUN TRACKER® BASS BUGGY® 18 DLX

The SUN TRACKER® BASS BUGGY® 18 DLX is small enough (20’/6.1 m LOA and 26’10”/8.18 m on the trailer) and light enough (2,932 lbs./1,330 kg package weight) to be easily trailered behind a mid-size tow vehicle. And, the optional painted steel trailer includes a swing-away tongue, allowing the rig to be stowed in many garages. Note the trailer-mount boarding ladder with handrail, a big plus for older users at the ramp. More...

The condenser of a marine air conditioning system is particularly vulnerable to problems if owners do not take basic maintenance steps.

Routine A/C maintenance is simple and inexpensive, and within the technical expertise of anyone with an opposable thumb. Combined with an annual professional checkup, the following simple procedures should keep your A/C chillin’. More...
