Riviera 4800 Sport Yacht:
Practical w/Accommodations for 5

Riviera 4800 Sport Yacht

The Riviera 4800 Sport Yacht combines practical utility with modern styling in a yacht that welcomes extended cruising as well as a fast run down the shore to the next watering hole, or a bit of partying while in harbor. The port side helm includes seats that would look at home on a 100-footer (30.48 m), and the sliding side window and sunroof offer natural ventilation, while two vents on the dash provide heat and air as needed.

Axopar 37 Sun-Top:
Redefining the Day Boat

Axopar 37 Sun-Top

The Axopar 37 Sun-Top is a new way of looking at a day boat for on-board picnics. With a dining assembly just abaft the helm seating, three helm chairs that rotate to face the table and four more just aft, seven people can have lunch. The table is fully under the sun top, which has a roll-back sunroof for cooler days. There’s a compact cabin for two below. She also delivers on performance. Our test boat ran 57.1 mph with twin Mercury 350s. More...

Upscale but Downsized Pontoon Seats 10


The REGENCY 210 DL3 is an upscale pontoon boat that is a bit smaller and more affordable than some in the luxury class at a base price of $42,895 with a Mercury 150 FourStroke. Yet, she has seating capacity for 10. With the optional 200-hp Mercury Pro XS, she reached a top speed of 39.4 mph. Powder-coated triple 26” (66 cm) pontoons will stay new-looking for many years. Most toons have pontoons that are 24” or 25” (60 to 63 cm) in diameter, but the 210 DL3 has pontoons of 26” (66 cm), which provide more buoyancy and better performance. More...

Everglades 335CC:
Bluewater Center Console w/All the Extras

Everglades 335CC

The Everglades 335CC is a center console that is equipped to suit serious offshore fishermen who might be downsizing from a battlewagon so they can fish shorthanded on occasion – to say nothing of cutting expenses and the hassle of a captain. She comes with just about anything the bluewater angler might desire, including a tower that puts the skipper’s eyes more than 14' (4.26 m) above sea level for a great view of birds, weed lines, and baitfish on the horizon. Powered with twin 425-hp Yamaha V8s, top speed was 54.7 mph in our tests. More...

Monte Carlo Yachts 70:
Designed for the Owner/Operator

Monte Carlo Yachts 70

The engine room of the Monte Carlo Yachts 70, accessed from watertight doors in the transom or to the crew quarters, makes life easy for the owner/operator with 6’4” (1.93 m) of headroom and a 22” (56 cm) walkway with safety rails between the twin 1200-hp MAN diesels. All of the ship’s systems are easily reached and clearly labeled. Four large venting fans provide fresh air to the engines, and to those who care for them. More...

St. Martin, St. Barts & Anguilla:
The Caribbean’s 3-Ring Circus

St. Martin, St. Barts & Anguilla: The Caribbean’s 3-Ring Circus

The islands of the Caribbean divide into neat groups of cruising territories. It’s as if they were doled out like cookie batter on a baking sheet of azure waters. St. Martin and its neighbors, Anguilla and St. Barts, are bursting with diversity. Although within half a day’s sail of one another, these islands differ in language, customs, approach to yachting and even the daily pace -- but their signature flavor is definitively Caribbean.
