Boston Whaler 190 Montauk:
Redesigned Classic CC

Boston Whaler 190 Montauk
Boston Whaler 190 Montauk

The Boston Whaler 190 Montauk retains the same eye appeal of her classic forbears, but she has an improved bottom design to deliver a softer and drier ride as well as numerous upgrades to interior comforts and features. She weighs in at just over 3,131 lbs. (1,420 kg) loaded, so she’s easily trailered on the standard galvanized tandem-axle trailer. The modest weight also delivers good performance, with the optional 150-hp Mercury FourStroke planing her in just 3.3 seconds — a big plus for watersports. Top speed was 46.9 mph in our tests and best cruise was 25.9 mph, at which she got 5.3 mpg for a range of about 285 SM. More...

Ocean Alexander 70E:
Sized for the Owner/Operator

Ocean Alexander 70E
Ocean Alexander 70E

Though the Ocean Alexander 70E has accommodations for a single crewman aft, she's right-sized for the experienced owner/operator and has easy walk-in access to the engine room plus plenty of space between the twin 900-hp Volvo Penta IPS1200s. Good lighting and adequate overhead height should make the daily checks a breeze. Note the well-marked and easily-accessed electrical panels on the forward bulkhead for all of the ship's systems. The stainless-steel rails will be appreciated when the skipper has to go below in a seaway. More...

Glass Dash & Standing Headroom

Cruisers Yachts 50 Cantius
Cruisers Yachts 50 Cantius

The helm of the Cruisers Yachts 50 Cantius has a roadster-style leather-wrapped wheel and two 17" (43 cm) screens mounted at an angle for easy viewing seated or standing. Throttles and a joystick for the twin 435-hp Volvo Penta IPS600 drives along with controls for the Garmin chartplotter, autopilot, and Bennett tabs are all within easy reach on an armrest to starboard of the double-wide captain's chair. The chair has a flip-up armrest and a full-width bolster to ease operation while standing. The large windshield provides good visibility over the bow and the helm area is readily ventilated by opening the power sunroof. More...

World Cat 230CC:
Catamaran Ready for Flats, Bay or Offshore

World Cat 230CC
World Cat 230CC

The World Cat 230CC is a center console catamaran design that has a hull draft of just 9” (23 cm), making her functional as a flats or bay boat and safe for crossing shallow bars. But unlike most dedicated flats boats, she has lots of freeboard - a full 40” (102 cm) at the bow due to the arched sheer - and she delivers an exceptionally easy ride in choppy seas thanks to her sharp forward entries. Her 8’6” (2.59 m) beam carried nearly all the way to the bow provides lots more space than in most monohulls of this range and greatly adds to beam stability. Her twin 115 outboards - fed by separate fuel and battery systems - deliver the redundancy that’s so important when headed for a long backcountry run as well as far offshore. More...
