Grady-White Canyon 326:
New Canyon-Runner w/50 MPH WOT

Grady-White Canyon 326

With a 10’9” (3.28 m) beam, the Grady-White Canyon 326 has plenty of room in the cockpit for fishing features, while up front her casting deck can readily be converted to a day-cruiser complete with a large sun lounge for entertaining. A console head and stainless-steel sink are standard. The windshield connects to the T-top to keep spray, wind and rain away from those in the three bolstered seats behind the console in upwind runs. She ran just under 50 mph in company tests with twin 300 Yamahas on the always smooth SeaV2® hull. She can go even faster with the optional twin 350s. More...

Donzi 41 GT:
1200 Supercharged Horsepower, 81.9 MPH WOT

Donzi 41 GT

Triple 400-R supercharged Mercury outboards hang on the transom of the Donzi 41 GT. She’s relatively slender with a 9’8” (2.95 m) beam for her 40’6” (12.34 m) LOA, all of which contribute to her top-end speed of 81.0 mph. Standard Mercury 380 K Plane racing trim tabs and a double-stepped hull are also part of her go-fast contributing factors. She was quick out of the hole with the 26” (66 cm) Bravo 1 propellers in just 3.4 seconds. Despite the low profile, designers managed to fit a compact salon/seating area for up to six belowdecks, as well as a hideaway toilet. See her in action here...

Monte Carlo Yachts 105:
Abundant Layout and Material Choices

Monte Carlo Yachts 105

The Monte Carlo Yachts 105 features full custom interiors with the buyer's choice of colors, fabrics, and designers. No detail is too small for meeting the buyer's tastes, with extensive use of marble, granite, leather, bronze, and other materials. Monocoque construction allows versatility in layout. In the version we tested, the owner's suite is forward on the main deck. The master bath includes his and her water closet compartments, separated by a large rainfall type shower, and they are all done in marble. See the details here...

Aquila 32:
Smart Design, Maximum Versatility

Aquila 32

The swim platform of the Aquila 32 catamaran provides far more usable space than what's normally found on outboard-powered boats. The standard hydraulic platform extends fully around the powerheads, acting as an extension of the cockpit complete with EVA foam decking in the up position, or as a teak beach or a place to launch water toys when down. Rub strips mounted atop the Mercury Verado 250s allow the engines to trim fully up, pushing the lounge seats slightly forward and getting the lower units completely out of the water. The folding stairs provide easy access. More...

Outer Reef 820 Cockpit Motoryacht:
Ready for Challenges at Sea

Outer Reef 820 Cockpit Motoryacht

Constructed to open Ocean Category "A", the Outer Reef 820 Cockpit Motoryacht is every bit the long-range cruiser she appears to be. She’s designed to endure wave heights of 18’ to 20’ (5.48 to 6.0 m) and winds of over 40 knots. A full-length keel extends below the running gear to protect it in the event of grounding. The rudders and struts are stainless steel with two Seatorque enclosed drive shaft systems. All deck and hull hardware attachments are finished with solid lamination, no coring, and the salon windows are 3/8" tempered safety glass. See all of her operational and guest features here...
