into the blue

TO ME, EACH MORNING REPRESENTS PURE OPTIMISM. The promise of potential is palpable. That’s how my Independence Day started. Our crew heard reports of an amazing tuna bite not far from our home port on Long Island, New York. We left before first light. ¶ As the boat eased out of the inlet, gray light cracked the eastern horizon. Adrenaline amped up even more as our team traded stories of whose friend caught what fish and where just a day or two earlier. The fish tales raised the crew’s cumulative blood pressure in a positive way. ¶ The sea was like a glass tabletop, and our sport-fisherman’s 30-knot cruise had us offshore in a hurry. We came across a pod of dolphins circling in rapid fashion; it looked like they…

now filming the future

SINCE 2012, JIM HILKER has filmed inside and outside of about 4,000 businesses for Google Street View, the technology that lets anyone click on a map to see a panoramic view of how a place looks in real life. About two years ago, he says, Google asked him and others to think about more uses for the tool. Then a year ago, he had an epiphany on the Intracoastal Waterway off Sarasota, Florida, aboard a friend’s 23-foot Scout. ¶ “We were cruising and having a great time, but because of what I do with Google Street View, I thought it would be great if I could see where we could go,” he says. “We wanted to go to some other areas, but we didn’t know what they looked like or…

r class: the fastest-ever hull from princess yachts

To develop the R35, which is the first Princess R Class model, the British builder worked with globally renowned experts. BAR Technologies, known for its America’s Cup advancements, helped to develop the Princess Active Foil System. It includes twin carbon foils beneath the waterline to reduce drag. Pininfarina, the Italian automaker, helped to develop the R35’s carbon-fiber hull. The team at Princess added a glass helm, Esthec soles, a Naim audio system and other onboard comforts for which the builder is known. Princess is calling the 35-footer a “technologically game-changing yacht” that is ideal for day cruises or a weekend on the hook, with a belowdecks galley, head, and seating that converts to a berth. princessyachts.com…

technohull’s new flagship: the omega 45

Technohull in Greece has unveiled its new flagship: the Omega 45 superyacht tender. She has the yard’s DynaStream hull, created with algorithms that determine the strakes, steps and variable deadrise distribution. Numerous engine options are available, and with what Technohull calls the “radical option” of quad 400 hp outboards, she’s expected to achieve 74 knots. To absorb the brunt of a ride that fast, four shockproof seats are under the T-top that shades the center console. There’s an enclosed head inside for use on the hook, and stowage is hidden beneath the foredeck sun bed. Far aft, abaft the standard lounge, owners can opt for more seating or an outdoor-cooking setup. technohull.com…

breaking boundaries

DOWNEAST CHARM complements an upturned peak only 3 feet 2 inches, the Hylas M44 is a cruise-anywhere craft. ¶ The M44 is built at Hylas’ Queen Long Marine yard in Taiwan, a well-known sailboat builder. It’s applying the same level of craftsmanship overhang shades most of the cockpit, and to its relatively new powerboat line. New Zealand designer Dean Salthouse developed the M44 from proven fishing, patrol and other commercial craft penned by the Salthouse family. ¶ Boarding from the platform is via three accordion-glass gates that allow access to the aft deck. The opening doubles as tender stowage underway, hence the metal skid plate on the deck’s edge between the cockpit and swim platform. ¶ The yacht’s integrated hardtop overhang shades most of the cockpit, and an enclosure makes…

british custom

OFTENTIMES the difference between success and failure comes down to nailing the details. It’s a concept Cockwells understands well. Take the British builder’s latest launch, the Titian Tender. This 34-foot retro beauty has bespoke carpentry, original fine art in her interior, and stainless-steel fittings. Those are just some of the little things that set her apart. And with twin 320 hp Yanmar 8LVs pushing her along, she’s not just for show — she’s also for go. Whom It’s For: The Titian Tender is for the experienced owner with refined tastes and an eye for classic design. Picture This: Your yacht is moored off the coast of Corsica late one summer morning when you get a taste for a specific bowl of zuppa corsa you discovered at a hole-in-the-wall café last…
