take a chance

It was an unusual scenario for the end of May. A warm-core eddy had spun out from the Gulf Stream, off the Northeast. Where there is an eddy, there’s usually good fishing. The rotating, bathlike water was coming closer, hovering about 100 or so nautical miles offshore—within striking range for our Long Island, New York-based crew. ¶ The sharp temperature difference between the colder shelf water and the eddy created a significant temperature break. It’s a sign we look for when fishing for pelagics. ¶ The text messages started: “See the break?” my brother’s read. “I did. We’re going after it,” my buddy Tom responded. Since Tom is the boat’s owner, where he goes, we go. ¶ We aimed for the first weekend in June. It was early when compared…

nothing but a number

WHEN JUD SMITH was around 10 years old, growing up in Marblehead, Massachusetts, he and his pals would go into Ted Hood’s lofts and play in the sailmaker’s scraps. ¶ “I would climb on those piles of cloth like it was a hayloft,” he says. “I don’t know if they wanted us there, but it was an open shed, and we were playing. It was about as much fun as anybody could have.” ¶ Smith and his friends would use the scraps to make sails for small boats, or for canoes, so they could race. “I remember breaking our neighbor’s sewing machine and everything,” he says with a chuckle. ¶ Fast forward a half-century, and Smith, now of Gloucester, has spent 20 years as a sailmaker with Doyle Sails. He…

JUST ABOUT EVERY ANNOUNCEMENT from top yachtbuilders in Europe these days is heralding something that’s never been done or built or tried. ¶ At Amels in the Netherlands, Aurora Borealis, the yard’s first 220, has completed a technical launch and is on track for delivery this summer. The Tim Heywood design evolved from the Amels 212, with a swim platform and beach club that, at more than 7,000 combined square feet, aim to leave all others on the superyacht scene appearing to be, somehow, small. ¶ Meanwhile, also in the Netherlands, Heesen Yachts is on schedule for a January 2021 delivery of the first newly designed hull in its 5000 aluminum class. Project Aquamarine promises an effciency gain of 12 percent with MTU’s 16V 4000 M65L “green” engines, which Heesen…

61'1" LENGTH OVERALL18'3" MAXIMUM BEAMAFTER GRUPPO GAVIO purchased Bertram in 2015, most who followed the iconic fishing-boat brand sensed that good things were coming. The introduction of the classically inspired Bertram 35 at the 2016 Newport International Boat Show let the world know that the new Bertram was serious about its heritage, but the question remained: Would the builder attempt to reclaim its place among the big boys of the convertible world with a tournament-ready battlewagon? ¶ The answer lies in the Bertram 61. ¶ The 61 has lines that are unapologetically masculine and blocky in a good way—think Mercedes G-Wagon. When I stepped aboard her business end, the cockpit features showed that her bite lives up to the styling’s bark. This particular 61 had a Pompanette fighting chair situated…

35'9" LENGTH OVERALL10'8" MAXIMUM BEAMTHE PRINCESS YACHTS R35 has quite the pedigree, including America’s Cup builder Ben Ainslie Racing and Ferrari designer Pininfarina. Together, the three companies created a carbon-fiber dayboat with sports-carlike lines, a boat that can run on foils and top out around 50 knots. Power is twin 430 hp Volvo Penta V-8 gasoline engines. ¶ For resting after a run, there is U-shaped seating belowdecks that converts to a double berth. There’s also a single wet head and a galley with a sink and a two-burner cooktop for simple meal prep. Whom It’s For: The Princess R35 is for the performance enthusiast with an eye for the modern and who is an early adopter of new technologies.• Picture This: The calm blue sea ahead is reminiscent of…
