Guide to new boats

2014 September 1

A new crop of exciting sailboats—from performance-oriented dinghies to drop-dead gorgeous flagships—is coming to a boat show near you

Salona 60

Salona Yachts, known for its smaller performance cruisers, is entering the luxury market with the semi-custom, Ker-designed Salona 60. It has six interior layouts to choose from. Even at anchor the boat looks ready to take off, a visual effect due the plumb bow but slightly overhanging stern and slightly reverse sheer. With the standard keel the boat draws nearly 11 feet 6 inches, but a swing keel version of the boat is available. LOA 63’; Beam 17’5”; Draft 11’5”; Displ. 53,000 lbs.; Price $1.7 million; www.salonayachts.com
