WHAT DO YOU MEAN THE NESPRESSO MACHINE won’t work? It’s a phrase that was said in jest, and in unison, by our seven-man crew during a recent guys’ trip. The vessel’s generator, which has several years on it, started acting cranky a few weeks prior to our annual getaway. No generator meant no head. No ice machine. No fridge. No range. No air conditioning. (It was 90 degrees Fahrenheit with 80 percent humidity.) ¶ Similar to how once you hit 40 years old, every morning is the discovery of a new ache in a place you didn’t know could hurt, the same seems to go for gensets. Our vessel’s owner is meticulous when maintaining his pride and joy. If something breaks, he fixes it. Stat. If equipment needs to be replaced,…

THE FORT LAUDERDALE INTERNATIONAL BOAT SHOW is going to look different this year. In fact, it’s going to look different before attendees even step inside. ¶ “You’re walking south toward the property, and there will be more of a plaza now, a welcoming plaza,” says Danny Bulemore, senior associate at EDSA, which is helping show owner Informa change the old entrance to exhibitor-only and create a separate entryway for attendees. “We’re proposing a larger media or info board — one that comes to mind is the message board at Disney World, where it tells you how long the wait times are. It could tell you what’s going on at the show, different events happening at different times at the show, everything that’s happening inside.” ¶ After that, he says, show-goers…

01. ROLEX DEEPSEA D-BLUE DIAL Rolex collaborated with professional scuba divers to create the Deepsea ($12,550), which is waterproof to a depth of 12,800 feet. The case is made of Oystersteel, which is a part of the super-alloy 904L stainless-steel family used in the aerospace industry. The dial on this version of the Deepsea fades from blue to black, which is the color gradiation that film director James Cameron saw during his dive to the ocean’s deepest spot, the Mariana Trench. Rolex designed this version of the Deepsea to commemorate Cameron’s experience. He made it 35,787 feet below the surface.…

02. ULYSSE NARDIN FREAK VISION The Freak Vision ($95,000) is an evolution of the InnoVision 2 Concept Watch that Ulysse Nardin unveiled in 2017. The shape of a boat hull inspired the flying carousel, whose motion tells time in a unique way and is the inspiration for the timepiece’s name. 03. BREITLING EXOSPACE B55 YACHTING An electronic tachymeter, a countdown timer for regatta starts, and other sailing-inspired features are built into the Exospace B55 Yachting ($7,170). Pressing the crown or tilting your wrist activates two backlit LCD screens with smartphone-style features. “WE ALL HAVE OUR TIME MACHINES. SOME TAKE US BACK. THEY’RE CALLED MEMORIES. SOME TAKE US FORWARD. THEY’RE CALLED DREAMS.”— ACTOR JEREMY IRONS…

crossing the rubicon

CAPT. JOHN CRUPI feared the “what ifs.” It was, after all, believed to be the first time a boat of this kind might do what he was preparing to do with Post One. ¶ She’s a Hatteras GT63 with a 1,900-gallon fuel capacity that will get her to the canyons at 40-plus knots, but not across oceans. And yet, that’s what her owner wanted. ¶ The crew had endured a few bad experiences in 15 years of towing a 45-footer, and transport ships didn’t offer routes near the grounds the owner wanted to fish. So, the idea was to cruise Post One on her own bottom 4,085 miles from Panama to Bermuda to the Azores, in tandem with the owner’s mothership, the 148-foot Cheoy Lee Dorothea III. The team had…
