Regal LS4 Surf:
Dedicated to Watersports & Dayboating

Regal LS4 Surf
Regal LS4 Surf

The Regal LS4 Surf is set up well for wake surfers and tow sports. She includes a removable water-tank system that can add up to 2,000 lbs. (907 kg) of ballast to create the perfect wake. The standard Volvo Penta Forward Drive propulsion system puts the counter-rotating props a full 26” (66 cm) forward to increase safety for those in the water. The aft seats become comfortable chaise lounges with the backs flipped forward, great for some sunning when the boat is at rest. A popup towing cleat is located between the seats in addition to the standard power tower with high tow point. More...

Everglades 335CC:
A 25-Degree Deadrise Plus Level Flotation

Everglades 335CC
Everglades 335CC

The Everglades 335CC is a premium center console that is clearly made to be at home in rolling seas well offshore while chasing bluewater gamefish. She rides on a deep-V design that has a very sharp bow entry, an average deadrise of 41-degrees and a full 25-degrees at the transom, which is the sharpest deadrise aft virtually any builder makes. We tested her in moderate waves, but she should be one of the best when the going gets rough. Her sharp chines provide beam stability, quick planing, and sweep upward towards the bow to act as a spray rail, keeping the cockpit dry in most conditions. She has foam flotation that will keep the boat floating level if swamped, per company in-the-water testing — a rarity in the industry. More...

Hatteras GT54:
Tough Sportfisher w/Handsome Interior

Hatteras GT54
Hatteras GT54

The Hatteras GT54 is without question a fast, tough, and uncompromising sportfisher in the classic mold. But she is also a strikingly-beautiful and well-finished cruising yacht. Note the high-gloss matched-grain African mahogany finishes throughout the salon and galley, shown here. Even the battens in the ceiling and the trim around the windows are beautifully-finished mahogany. The galley island can function as a bar or a breakfast spot in addition to a food prep area and it keeps the chef in the conversations going on in the salon. More...

BENETEAU Antares 23:
Pocket Cruiser w/Outboard Power Sleeps 4

BENETEAU Antares 23
BENETEAU Antares 23

With a forward cabin and a convertible dinette in the salon that converts to a berth, the competitively priced Antares 23 can host a small family for overnight cruising. There’s a reversible back on the forward dinette seat, allowing it to face forward so the crew can keep the captain company. The 200-hp outboard provides adequate power for watersports, with a 4.3-second time to plane and a comfortable cruising speed. A large Bimini extends to cover the entire cockpit, as seen here, and the seating converts to a sun pad for even more relaxation. More...
