TAHOE T16:
Comfortable Entry-Level Boat

TAHOE T16
TAHOE T16

The TAHOE T16 is an entry-level, turnkey runabout with a competitive price of just $15,995 including the 60-hp Mercury ELPT FourStroke and single-axle trailer. She's less expensive than other entry-level boats on the market, but that’s not the only advantage of this 16-footer. Perhaps most important is that she has a V-bottom and will not jar your teeth out like some low-cost entry-level boats. This detail makes all the difference between a boat for a large pond and one that can be used in harbors, shallow bays, inland lakes and rivers. The hull has a draft of just 12.5” (31.75 cm), allowing safe and easy visits to picnic beaches. With a weight of only 1,250 lbs. (567 kg), she’s easily trailered with even a smaller tow vehicle.

Shurhold Ultimate One Bucket System:
Quantum Improvement in the 5-Gallon Bucket

Shurhold One Bucket System
Shurhold Ultimate One Bucket System

Here’s one to add to your bucket list: the Shurhold Ultimate One Bucket System is a quantum improvement in the ubiquitous 5-gallon (19 L) bucket that virtually everyone carries aboard. It comes with a stout rope handle, which is much easier on hands than the usual wire bail as well as more securely anchored, and the optional padded top converts the bucket into a portable seat. Add the removable Bucket Base to keep the bucket from sliding around the deck or tipping easily -- it’s made from non-marking composite. The optional Bucket Caddy holds all of the necessary cleaning and polishing compounds to keep your pride and joy spotless. More...

Everglades 435CC:
Premium Bluewater Angler w/4x 425 Yamaha V8s

Everglades 435CC
Everglades 435CC

Everglades -- in the process of expanding into an added 53,000-square-foot (4,924 sq. m) building near their main facility in Edgewater, Florida -- recently introduced their largest model ever, the Everglades 435CC. She’s aimed at those downsizing from big diesel battlewagons as well as those who feel the need for serious speed in getting offshore. She ran 60.0 mph (52.1 knots) in our tests. Our test boat was loaded with top-shelf equipment, including two giant 60-gallon (227 L) aerated livewells, a freezer-plate in the fishbox, standard gyro, AC and 5 kW generator, standard hardtop with outriggers, three Pompanette Platinum Series helm chairs, full rigging station and lots more. The upper helm station shown here is optional, as is extensive varnished teak trim. More...

Azimut Atlantis 51:
Sleek Express w/Tender Garage

Azimut Atlantis 51
Azimut Atlantis 51

The Azimut Atlantis 51 is a sleek and stylish express, but designers manage to fit a tender garage seamlessly into the transom by installing the twin 600-hp Volvo Pentas forward and connecting them to the IPS drives via jackshafts. A power winch with a remote and plenty of rollers on the bunk makes launching and loading the dinghy easy. Aft, the hydraulic swim platform completes the launch and load package, as well as creating a handy teak beach. More...
