Reviewing The New Two-Stroke Evinrude E-TEC 60 H.O.

New Evinrude E-TEC 60 H.O.

The new E-TEC 60 H.O. model adds some brawn to the Evinrude mid-size outboard range. Intended to power pontoon and heavy fishing boats, the E-TEC 60 H.O. shares its three-cylinder, 1.3-liter powerhead with the E-TEC 75 and E-TEC 90 models, and offers a whopping 50 percent more displacement than the standard Evinrude E-TEC 60, which is a 863cc twin. De-tuned on the top end to about 65 HP, the E-TEC 60 H.O.

Highly Customizable Model: The 2017 Maritimo M64

 Maritimo M64

The 2017 Maritimo M64 is a highly customizable model that fills out the skylounge line for this Australian builder. The Maritimo 440 is one of the smallest enclosed flybridge boats around, and now the Australian builder has added a fifth model, the M64, to its line of enclosed flybridge designs—which stretch all the way up to a 70-footer.

The 2017 New Fairline Squadron 48 Review

 2017 New Fairline Squadron 48

The new Squadron 48 power boat, which is based on the express cruiser Targa 48 hull, is the smallest of the flybridge offerings. UK-based luxury boat-builder Fairline Yachts has unveiled a new 48-footer that completes their four-model flybridge line. That said, there’s nothing small about its expansive deck and luxury living accommodations.

The High-Performance Powerboat MTI 340X Catamaran Review

MTI 340X Catamaran

Everything about the 36-footer, from performance to aesthetics, was right in line with what performance-boat aficionados have come to know and love about MTI, and yet the new boat failed to produce significant sales. According to Scism, the founder and owner of the company, it was customer demand that drove him to introduce the then-smallest model in the MTI line. And yet the buyers failed to materialize.

Nedship Streets of Monaco Review

Nedship Streets of Monaco

Cruise ships have extensive layouts with swimming pools, atria, multiple lounges, and are often thought of as being a city on the sea, so if you have the means, why not have your own city on the sea called ‘The Streets of Monaco’. Designed by the creative minds at Yachts Island Design in the UK, she is actually modeled after the European principality.The theme's primary focus being the famous grand prix circuit.

The New 2017 Sunseeker Predator 68 MKII Review

 2017 Sunseeker Predator 68 MKII

Restyled and modified, the new 2017 Sunseeker Predator 68 MKII model review still holds onto its classic roots. This is made possible by the large glass door that can either open as normal or disappear entirely by lowering into the machinery spaces. If the climate is amenable and the weather is good, it’s a perfect combination of indoors and out.

The Prestige 630 Boat Video Review

The Prestige 630 Boat

We jumped at the chance when we were offered the chance to take the Prestige 630 from the Barcelona Boat Show to Valencia.

It’s rare to be offered time to properly get under a boats skin and use on a typical cruise in a real world environment. You find out what it’s like to crew, how refined it is on a long journey, real time fuel data, how the galley works on the move and many other aspects of what makes a boat a good long-distance companion.

Century's 24 Resorter Reviews

Century's 24 Resorter

Century's 24 Resorter mixes the nostalgia of an iconic design with the benefits of modern technology. The outboard-powered 24 Resorter offers a deep-V fiberglass hull and a dual-console interior that lets families enjoy watersports, offshore fishing and day-cruising in comfort.

Our test boat featured power steering, electronic throttle and shift, and digital switching via a Raymarine eS127 Hybrid-Touch 12-inch multifunction display that also serves as a fish finder/chart plotter.

Reviewing The Carolina Skiff 24 Ultra

The Carolina Skiff 24 Ultra

The Carolina Skiff 24 Ultra is perfect for the coastal angler who also likes to entertain a crowd. We say the Carolina Skiff 24 Ultra is a coastal fishing boat with enough creature comforts to make it more than family-friendly.
