pacific passages

Flannel shirts. Starbucks. Craft beer. An above-average number of serial killers. Pearl Jam. Did I mention flannel shirts? That’s what came to mind when I thought about Seattle and the greater Pacific North-west. That and natural beauty. I’ve spent the last decade reading and editing tales of adventure in this long-range cruising mecca. Puget Sound, the San Juans, Vancouver—places where mountains reach out to kiss both sea and sky. I could see them clearly in my mind, and at the same time not at all. Joined by a few other members of the Power & Motoryacht team, I recently got the chance to pen a few stories of my own from these hallowed cruising grounds. Our journey began, fittingly, where many seasoned cruisers got their start: at Trawlerfest Seattle (put on by our…

Lincoln Davis knows many of the secrets in the long history of outboard engines. “Everyone credits Evinrude with the first outboard motor, but they weren’t the first,” says Lincoln, who fixes outboards for a living but whose real passion is collecting antique engines. “This was really the first successful outboard motor,” he says, gesturing toward a small 2-hp Waterman from 1907 in the corner of his compact museum. Located off the beaten path in Waldoboro, Maine, Stetson & Pinkham is a service center that doubles as a repository for Lincoln’s impressive collection of antique outboards. Old outboards are arranged in the rear of the shop: a small museum that is open for anyone who wants to see it, admission-free. It’s organized chronologically, but Lincoln’s knowledge expands far beyond dates. He can speak…

The city that never sleeps. The home of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, the gateway to the land of unlimited promise, a place where many still believe the streets are paved with gold. One of the most iconic landmarks of the Big Apple is Times Square. The bright lights, the palpable energy: It’s a place where you never know what to expect. From a half-nude singing cowboy to giant—some would say terrifying—Elmos, to thousands of kissing couples ringing in the new year, every venture into the city’s heart is a trip. Still, many were shocked to find the 59-foot Azimut S6 parked there as part of a five-city world tour that started in Dubai to celebrate the company’s 50th anniversary. This event is also a reunion of sorts. We…

merc’s new powerhouse

Eric Glaser was jet-lagged after traveling overnight from a Mediterranean holiday to Nashville, but you’d never know it. The Midnight Express co-owner stood smiling at the helm of his company’s 43 Open and looked back at the color-matched, 2,250 ponies hanging from its transom. “I didn’t want to miss this,” Glaser told me and then suggested to those aboard to get a handhold. With that, Glaser firewalled the throttles and a 52-knot cruise quickly escalated into a 79-knot WOT on the tabletop-flat lake. The five powerplants pinned me to my bolster seat, the mid-range torque on full display. It was a fitting reception from Mercury Racing’s new, 450-hp powerhouse. The Fond du Lac, Wisconsin manufacturer claims their new, top-of-the-line outboard takes the throne with the best power-to-weight ratio in the industry.…

old-school cool

Boatbuilding facilities come in all shapes and sizes around the world. They range from mom-and-pop shops in little more than a two-car garage under a Banyan tree to ultra-modern manufacturing facilities with skyscraping paint sheds and cranes that look like they belong at the Port of Long Beach, bearing more resemblance to a NASA subcontractor than a yacht yard. It should be no surprise that the nature of the facilities bears no relation whatsoever to the skill and dedication of the builders ensconced therein. Among the wide variety of boatbuilding venues, the traditional working boatyard is certainly the most inviting to a yacht designer and engineer like me. Being immediately adjacent to navigable water, each working boatyard’s real estate is in high demand by condo developers, nature preservationists, various competing industries…
