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.

Reviewing The Chaparral 227 SSX: Putting The Fun in Function

The Chaparral’s 227 SSX Boat

The Chaparral’s 227 SSX is the one runabout to have when you really want two boats. The big news a couple of months back was that Malibu had licensed its Surf Gate technology and hull designs to Chaparral. The exclusive agreement gave the Chaparral access to equipment and technology that would allow it to compete in a marketplace in which it previously could not.

The BRIG Eagle 780 Review

The BRIG Eagle 780 Boat

Running at 40-plus mph in a short, 2-foot chop isn’t usually comfortable, but BRIG’s Eagle 780 RIB did so with amazing ease. Its 7.8-meter length (25 feet 9 inches) bridged three to four waves at once, while its deep-V hull (23-degree deadrise at transom, flowing to 38 degrees forward) cleaves them open. And this RIB’s 2-foot diameter Hypalon tubes absorb whatever impact there is when the hull comes down while also knocking down spray. At speeds in the 20s, our test boat rode through the chowder like a Bentley.

Chris-Craft Calypso 30

While the Chris-Craft 42 Commander has been stealing most of the headlines about this boat-builder lately, also new for 2017 is the Calypso 30. This boat works well as a family cruiser, handles casual fishing with aplomb, and tops out over 50 MPH—all the while looking good from every angle. Take a peek at the boat for yourself, in this First Look Video we shot at the Fort Lauderdale boat show.
