Cruisers Yachts 60 Fly:
Easy Control for the Owner/Operator

Cruisers Yachts 60 Fly
Cruisers Yachts 60 Fly

The Cruisers Yachts Cantius 60 Fly adds a spacious flying bridge with a hardtop to the stylish lines of the Cantius 60 -- not only greatly increasing entertainment capabilities but also providing the owner/operator with a much-improved view of the water when underway and the docks when sliding into a slip. A standard cockpit joystick and another at the main deck helm eases the docking chore even further. Touch screen controls allow monitoring and control of all of the ship’s systems. This information is also available via an iPad, which allows the captain to shut down the boat after retiring to the spacious master belowdecks. More...

Sea Ray Sundancer 350 Coupe:
Quiet Ride in a Stylish Coupe

Sea Ray Sundancer 350 Coupe
Sea Ray Sundancer 350 Coupe

The Sea Ray Sundancer 350 Coupe features aggressive styling that gives her a sporty and modern look. The hardtop and full side windows provide complete protection for the helm area when desired. Add the optional generator plus AC/heat and she’s a three-season weekender. Or, slide open the forward vent, side windows and the powered sunroof to opt for natural ventilation when conditions warrant. Our test boat was powered by a pair of muscular 380-hp MerCruiser 8.2 MAGs, but noise levels were minimal thanks to the company’s extensive “Quiet Ride” technology insulating noise and vibration -- just 88 dBa at the helm at a full throttle of 36.8 mph and 85 dBa at a 31.0 mph cruise.

Bring the Family . . . And Their Friends

TAHOE 700
TAHOE 700

The TAHOE 700 is a 21’ (6.40 m) runabout that is priced right for young families. But she includes all the necessities for a comfortable day of swimming, watersports, picnicking and general enjoyment of the boating life. She comes packaged with a tandem-axle trailer that allows exploring a new waterway every weekend. The swing-away tongue on the trailer cuts overall length of the rig to 22’8” (6.91 m), which will fit in most garages. The package weight, 4,850 lbs. (2,200 kg) including the trailer, allows her to be towed by most mid-size SUVs and pickups. She has seating for up to nine passengers, welcoming the kids to bring along lots of friends. More...

Robalo R305:
Fully-Loaded Pocket Sportfisher

Robalo R305
Robalo R305

The Robalo R305 functions as a “pocket sportfisher” with a layout that will make any offshore angler feel at home. The cockpit has 44.4 square feet (4.12 sq. m) of working space that includes a 25-gallon (94.6 L) aerated livewell on the port transom corner and a 30-gallon (113.6 L) livewell under a seat just ahead. Two big fishboxes in the deck will make quick work of getting a gaffed fish under control and on the ice. An aft-facing mezzanine-style seat makes for a good spot to watch trolled lines. The hardtop with rocket launchers and spreader lights is standard, and outriggers are optional. There’s a rigging station and a sink, toe rails, and even multiple plugs for electric reels or downriggers. More...

World Cat 320DC:
Island Runner w/Lots of Freeboard, 16” Draft

BOAT NAME
World Cat 320DC

The World Cat 320DC is a born island runner, with maximized freeboard forward plus very sharp forward entry on the twin hulls to allow her crew to stay dry and comfortable, even at speed in rough water. The twin hull design and 10’6” (3.2 m) beam should also provide exceptional beam stability. Shallow water is no problem -- draft is just 16” (41 cm) with the drives trimmed up. She is set up to allow a couple to overnight, with a sitting area convertible to a double berth in the port console, a standup head and shower in the starboard console and an open-air kitchen in the cockpit. A dive door, a large aerated baitwell and plenty of rod racks and tackle storage welcome a bit of lobstering and fishing. More...

New Product Launch

SiOnyx Aurora Sport:
A Night Vision Camera for Boaters and Anglers

BOAT NAME
SiOnyx Aurora Sport

The SiOnyx Sport is based on patented Ultra Low Light technology that was spun out of Harvard University, which enables the camera to capture color images and video -- whether it’s noon or midnight. The new Sport is IP67-water-resistant and Wi-Fi-enabled so adventures can be easily shared with friends. Free companion apps on iOS and Android enable real-time navigation or the ability to control the Sport directly from a smartphone. It is basically the same camera as the company’s much more expensive Aurora model, but the GPS and compass are removed and it’s no longer warrantied to be mounted on a hunting weapon. The Sport hits the market today, July 9, and it's priced at $399. See details here...

Boating Tips

Why Wear a Safety Lanyard?

uscg report
A runaway boat is one of the most dangerous situations on the open water.

Not everyone takes safety lanyards seriously. Many boat owners actually disable the safety lanyard system or simply just don’t attach the safety lanyard to their body. It is even more important when operating alone. However, even in the event that there are others onboard, they may not be able to respond. With the lanyard kill switch attached to the operator, it will reduce the chance of being hit by your own boat or worse -- tangled with the propeller. Learn more about this important safety device.
