“What you are going to read,” explains Editor-in-Chief Matteo Zaccagnino in his editorial, “is a MotorBoat Magazine with new graphics and a new style. Not a revolution, but an evolution that aims to adopt a visual language in step with the times we live in. A new project in terms of form but not in terms of function, justified by the skills and professionalism of a publishing house that has been working in this sector for 47 years.”

In this new guise, the magazine tackles the theme of marine “electric transition”, offering an overview of the state of the art and the main models available on the market today. Another hot topic in Motorboats no. 24 concerns the “user-friendly” and therefore accessible boat. The design choices largely point in this direction. The electronics are the stars, as the chairman and CEO of Navico (a group that includes Simrad, Lowrance, C-Map and B&G) told us in an interview.

After this general introduction, let’s take a look at some of the main features of MotorBoat Magazine no. 24 (read here)


How does yachting become accessible to everyone? By simplifying. A boat that is easy to handle is one that everyone (even newcomers) could potentially use. The great momentum that the market is now experiencing has seen a large number of new owners, even unexperienced, enter the yachting market. How to make a unit easier to handle? With electronics. We interviewed Knut Frostad, CEO of Navico, who explained his views on the boat of tomorrow. From page 64


In the automotive world, electric cars are playing an increasingly prominent role. But what about the marine sector? The issues are very different because the reasons for using one and the other are radically different. The car is a necessity while the boat is often a recreational means. However, this does not mean that boatyards and powertrain manufacturers are indifferent to the “green” wave that is sweeping through our daily lives. The aim is not to be electric, but to reduce emissions as far as possible (possibly to zero). Let’s see how this is playing out in the nautical world and what are the most interesting models available on the market. From page 72

 

 


A new way of experiencing and living on a boat. The BG72 reinvents (in 22 metres) on-board liveability without forgetting the importance of the seaworthiness that a unit of this type must have. Bluegame’s flagship is unconventional, but it establishes a new way of conceiving a boat. From page 86.

 

 


Beneteau does not stop and expands the Antares range with the new Beneteau Antares 8. A compact, sporty short-range cruiser for moments with family or friends. An 8-metre boat that is also versatile depending on the owner’s needs. This is because the boat is designed for those who love being in contact with the water, but not all yachtsmen are the same. This is why it is available in two different versions: a Cruising version that focuses strongly on on-board comfort and conviviality. On the other hand, there’s a fishing version that is in fact a concentrate of everything a fishing enthusiast needs. Read the sea trial on page 104.

With over 500 units sold in just five years, Pardo Yachts is one of the most successful brands of recent years. Its story, however, does not begin five years ago, but has much deeper roots. Behind it is a strategic and product vision that has allowed the brand to be projected onto the market and reap international success. From page 110


2022 is the 100th anniversary of the Patrone shipyard, one of the longest-lived in Italy. The peculiarity? Having remained faithful to the same type of boat for a century: the Ligurian gozzo. In this article we see how this boat has evolved over time and where it will go in the future, starting with the model the yard has built to celebrate this centenary: the P100, a preview of which is published in Barche a Motore Magazine no. 24. From page 118.
