New Boat Showcase

2022 September 29

The exciting group of new boats for 2023 has something for everyone. From luxury performance cruisers to zippy midsize racer-cruisers, boat design is evolving to make sailing faster and more comfortable.


This American girl has style. The latest cruiser from the company that redefined American yacht design blends performance with classic good looks. With a SA/D of 25.85, it has the horsepower to move the boat well in light air yet can carry on without reefing until 20 knots without changing or reducing sails. The interior is classic J/Boats simplicity, with options for different aft cabin layouts and a large forward cabin. www.jboats.com

It’s in the bag. Inflatable daysailers are convenient to throw in the car for a trip or stow on board for cruising fun, but are often clumsy to sail. The latest sailing dinghy for Tiwal changes that by using a rigid aluminum exoskeleton coupled with its inflatable hull. The company went to North Sails to develop the laminated sail and the mast and boom are carbon fiber. This zippy daysailer breaks down into two bags for easy storage. www.tiwal.com

It’s all about the space. This new midsize French cruiser packs in the accoutrements for comfortable cruising. Starting in the cockpit, the 37 features the new trend of pushing the helms all the way aft to create more space in the cockpit. Down below, the three-cabin layout features an extra large forward owner’s cabin and a light and bright saloon. www.dufour-yachts.com
