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.
This new easy-to-sail cruiser from Beneteau can be customized to owners’ sailing needs and style, including three sailplans. All halyards and sheets are brought back to winches at each of the helms for simple shorthanded sailing. The large cockpit has room for eight guests around a large table and located on either side of the companionway are two reclining sun loungers with drinks holders that can easily be moved to the foredeck. The spacious master’s cabin has a shower room with a separate head and oversized island berth.
