New Boat Showcase
It’s boat show season, and this year there is a range of new boats hitting the shows from Newport to Miami. From a fun inflatable dinghy and a foiling racer to comfy cruisers, our editors share some of the exciting new designs.
The new Moorings 5000 from Robertson & Caine is making a splash in the chartering fleets, with an expansive saloon featuring modern light wood finishes, wraparound panoramic windows and a skylight providing an abundance of natural lighting. Four spacious en-suite cabins, a fully appointed forward-facing galley, a dining area with wraparound seating and a drop-down table that makes an additional double berth makes this new cruising cat a must for up to 11 guests. The saloon also blends seamlessly into the aft cockpit that includes an extended galley, featuring an electric grill, outdoor refrigerator and dining table. An elevated lounge area with wraparound seating, sunbed and shade awning take outdoor living to new heights with 360-degree views.
