The New Lagoon 630 Motor Yacht Review

Lagoon 630 Motor Yacht

The 630 can easily accommodate up to 12 people for extended cruising but it’s not just her size that makes her noteworthy.

The aft deck alone is nearly 250 sq. ft. and the interior is 900 sq. ft.

Evo Yachts Evo 43

Few boats actually stop boat show goers in their tracks but the 2017 Evo 43 managed to do just that in Fort Lauderdale. Simply sitting at the dock, the 13-meter yacht already impresses with its minimalist style and aggressive profile. But when it goes into full Transformer mode, it’s a showstopper—you’ll have to see it to believe it.

The New Walker Bay Generation 525 Review

The Walker Bay Generation 525

The new Walker Bay Generation 525 mixes efficient performance with numerous amenities. Walker Bay stopped counting its small dinghy sales (many have sold through West Marine) at 150,000 boats, which speaks volumes about the company. Its new Generation 525 marks a shift into the luxury market, and Walker Bay nailed it with a delightfully fresh design. For those who haven’t yet considered a RIB for use as a runabout, the Generation 525 would be a good boat to begin with.

The Best Way to Keep Boat Insurance Rates Low

Hold Down Boat Insurance Costs and Maximize Enjoyment of Your Boat

And the more trouble-free your boating experience, the more fun will be had by all involved.  You buy insurance for your boat for good reason: sometimes trouble comes your way and you can’t avoid it. When it happens often enough, or at the wrong time, though, the rates you pay are likely to rise and sometimes you’ll need to find to another insurer.
