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 Bill Dixon-designed Hylas H48 is a powerful offshore cruiser that has a sleek raised saloon, center cockpit and a choice of two or three cabins. It boasts wide, clean decks, a self-tacking staysail for ease of handling, wraparound deck-saloon windows for terrific light and visibility, and a classic, spacious center cockpit. The H48 is available with three-cabins and two-heads or luxurious twin stateroom layout with options to suit personal tastes. The H48 will make its maiden sail from Newport, Rhode Island, to Annapolis, Maryland, just in time for the show.
