THE BEST OF MOTOR BOATS IN 10 POINTS

OPEN AND COUPE, ALL THE BEST!

Open or coupe? When in doubt, we tried them both! In this issue you can find out all about the brand new Azimut Atlantis 51 (16 mt.) that attracts with a design that can amaze. After Atlantis you can enjoy the splendid Targa 63 GTO (19.96 mt), a Fairline jewel, and the Sessa Marine C44 (13.95 mt), a very interesting coupe for its features. But the reports are not only about opens or coupes, but also about fishing boats such as the Invictus 270 FX, the mini fisherman that gives great satisfaction, and motor catamarans such as the Lagoon 630 MY, the right choice for those who want quality on board.

BOWRIDER OR SMART BOAT: WHO WINS?

Smart boats and bowrider are the trend of the moment, so we decided to compare twenty boats from 7 to 20 meters to find out all the peculiarities and aspects that are making this kind of boat so successful. We tried to answer the fateful question “megatender or daycruiser?” and then discovered in detail the advantages of smart boats from “small” ones such as Invictus 280 TT(8.90 mt.) to Otam 58 HT (19.20 meters). We then also explored the bowrider world with boats of all kinds such as the Pirelli 1400 by Tecnorib ( 13.70 mt.)

12 APPS FOR SMOOTH SAILING!

Boating has always gone hand in hand with the best technologies, and in the age of smartphones and tablets we have come up with a selection of very useful apps for those who go to sea. From weather to safety, from mapping to tourism, are you sure you know all the 12 best apps currently out there for coastal navigation? From classics such as Navionics, Navily, and Marine Traffic to lesser-known but equally good ones. Find out what they are in this second issue of Motor Boats!

 

NAVY OF ITALY: HERE ARE THE BEST

If you can navigate in comfort with our selection of apps, all that remains is to choose the right marina. In this issue you can find all the details about the top moorings throughout Italy, from the Tyrrhenian Sea to Sicily. It starts from Marina Cala de’ Medici in Tuscany, an ideal port for those sailing between Corsica and the Tuscan Archipelago, to the brand new marina at Capo d’Orlando in Sicily, already a hub for anyone sailing in the Aeolian area. The article also includes data on how many moorings there are and where in Italy there are currently moorings.

USED AS NEW: THE BEST ON THE MARKET

If your dream is to own a boat, but new ones are unaffordable try checking among the 30 boats we have chosen, the best used ones from those currently for sale that in some cases represent real bargains not to be missed for anything in the world. There are boats for sale for all tastes and budgets from 10 to 30 meters, such as the mega yacht Le0pard (27 mt.) from Cantiere Navale Arno for sale at 730,000 euros. For those who prefer smaller boats here is the Montercalo 37 (12.00 mt.), a Beneteau for sale at 139,000 euros.

HOW I STABILIZE YOUR BOAT: GOODBYE SEASICKNESS

We have arrived at the time dedicated to the best technologies around for boats, and this could be a watershed moment. Boat stabilizers, which minimize the effects of waves, are becoming increasingly refined by disembarking from what is their natural habitat-mega yachts-and landing on smaller boats as well. A new generation all to be discovered and understood, explained in detail in the first pages of Motor Boats.

 

FISHING LOVERS, THIS IS FOR YOU

Going fishing is a matter of passion, time and skill, so for the inexperienced, it becomes essential for the boat to “help.” Turning the most complex situations into business as usual requires knowing how to use and master on-board electronics. We explored with an expert from Garmin Marine how to make the best use of electronics and how to make them functional for our fishing trip.
