Regal 33 SAV:
One Boat that Does It All

Regal 33 SAV

The Regal 33 SAV (Sports Activity Vessel) is well designed for fishing, diving, comfortable and casual dayboating as well as overnights for up to four. The console has near-pilothouse level of wind and spray protection due to the large side panels, while a top windshield vent opens to provide ventilation when needed. The supports for the hardtop are integrated into the console and seating assemblies, and vertical grabrails are integrated. The swim platform is full beam, improving use for watersports, and there's a dive door on the port side of the cockpit. She's fully equipped for fishing with rod holders combined into the stainless-steel cup holders, positioning the stern rod holders on the back of the transom. See Captain Steve's intro to this new model here...

Hatteras M90 Panacera:
A Galley for Serious Chefs

Hatteras M90 Panacera

Here's a galley any ocean-going chef will love. The Hatteras M90 Panacera has a massive skylight directly over the large food prep area and large windows on three sides that give one of the best views aboard. The skylight includes "Smart Glass" that provides shading at the touch of a button. There's also a booth-style dinette that will no doubt be a favorite spot for morning coffee, and all appliances are top-end Miele and Sub-Zero. Pantographic doors just aft on either side can be opened to provide ventilation or to access the large entertainment area at the bow. The main dining area, which seats eight, is just aft. More...

Sun Tracker Fishin' Barge 24 XP3:
Well-Equipped Tri-Toon w/10-Year Warranty

Sun Tracker Fishin' Barge 24 XP3

Loads of multi-density foam seating, four swiveling fishing seats, a Bimini top and lots of storage make the Fishin' Barge 24 XP3 an excellent family boat as well as a comfortable fishing machine. Because the fishing areas are focused at the bow and the stern, the rest of the family can relax and enjoy the sunshine at the same time.

How to Avoid Spin Outs

uscg report

If not, it can also lead to tragedy. Hopefully, if you can understand why and how a spin out happens, then you can avoid this happening to you. More...
