Monday #1

Sailfish 245 DC:
Secure Bowrider w/Seats for 12

Sailfish 245 DC
Sailfish 245 DC

Lots of freeboard both at the bow and well aft translates to a deep cockpit for added security in the Sailfish 245 DC. Combined with the large dual windshields, this should keep those in the cockpit dry and cozy even on upwind runs. She also has a full transom except for the walkthrough door to the swim platform, a plus in following seas. The company is known for building rugged offshore fishing boats, but the 245 DC is a family-fun platform first. She can handle up to 12 guests. More...

Aquila 32:
Broad-Beamed Cat Ready to Party

Aquila 32
Aquila 32

As with all catamarans, the outboard-powered Aquila 32 is all about packing loads of space into minimal LOA - her 12'8" (3.9 m) beam allows up to 16 guests for a day on the water. She includes many quality touches as standard features, including teak-looking non-slip composite decking, diamond-stitched upholstery and carbon fiber drink holders throughout. And though she’s a boat built for partying, she also includes a double bunk and a head below decks forward for weekending. More...

Palm Beach 50 Fly:
Classic Beauty Plus a Smooth, Quiet Ride

Palm Beach 50 Fly
Palm Beach 50 Fly

With the twin Volvo Penta IPS600 engines positioned near amidships, the Palm Beach 50 Fly displays a major advantage in balance compared to yachts with engines and drive gear at the transom. She planes in just 4.5 seconds, far quicker than most hulls of this size and weight. She can stay on plane at lower power - at 2000 rpm, she ran 14 knots in our tests while burning just 10 gph. Running nearly level keeps her sharp forward entry at work in rough water, smoothing the ride despite a deadrise at the transom of just 6-degrees. Heavy sound-proofing around the engine room keeps noise levels low, only 78 dBA at the helm at 3000 rpm. More...

Outer Reef 610:
Long Ranger Tested in Snotty Weather

Outer Reef 610
Outer Reef 610

The Outer Reef 610 Motoryacht is a classic long-ranger designed for ocean crossings and extended life aboard. On test day, the seas were so rough that we couldn’t get acceptable video from our photo boats, so our cameraman had to go aboard to shoot. It was just as well because we found out what we really wanted to know – she can handle rough seas with aplomb. She’s powered with fuel-efficient twin 750-hp John Deere 6135 diesels – which, combined with her 1,200-gallon (4,921 L) fuel tankage, give her very long legs. 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...
