the good guys

As I write this, Hurricane Florence, which ravaged North Carolina, is two weeks gone from the East Coast of the United States. Yet a top story in the news this night is the catastrophic flooding that still threatens people in both Carolinas. Winds may be hellacious and the storm surge may be overwhelming, but Florence reminded us that rainfall can be the deadliest component of a hurricane. The proof is in the lives lost and irreversibly altered by this latest cyclone’s deluge. Naturally, first responders from other parts of the nation, and indeed the world, descended upon North Carolina even before the storm had wrought its destruction. Such is the makeup of these firemen, paramedics, military personnel and police that they go into harm’s way to help and save others, even…

kailin b.

One year ago, the beautiful Kailin B. was photographed on board a Robalo 317 DC as one of Boating’s Icom cover girls. Today she has been voted as the Cover Girl of 2018 by you, our readers. We sat down with Kailin to find out what that means to her and what else she has been up to on the water. What was it like being part of the cover photo shoot on the Robalo 317 DC? Not only was the crew great, but the boat was beautiful. The photographer shot the boat from a helicopter, which was such a cool experience! What does it mean to be voted Boating’s Cover Girl? I’m so happy that I can represent all of the girls who love being on the water as much as I do. So,…

donzi 41 gt

The Donzi 41 GT’s sleek, aerodynamic profile provides ample seating and the lounging ability of a runabout, all concealed below the sheer line. The frameless, wraparound windscreen provides crew protection without adding to the visual freeboard.

pfaff carbon marine 28 super sport

When Pfaff Automotive — dealer of high-end supercars Pagani, McLaren, Porsche and Audi — wanted to market a complementary boat, it commissioned Carbon Marine. The result is a 28-foot high-end, high-tech, high-performance boat. Power is a single 627 hp Seven Marine outboard. Thanks to handcrafted carbon-fiber construction, the 28 Super Sport boasts an unmatched power-to-weight profile. With the agility of a supercar, and a deep-V designed for offshore conditions, this is intended to be a versatile boat that takes its owners fishing on Saturday, to dinner on Sunday, and delivers thrills on the water anytime. Given the power-to-weight ratio advantage of carbon fiber and our experience running Seven Marine outboards, we don’t doubt these claims. Top speed is expected to be 80 mph. Amenities include two Garmin touchscreen multifunction displays, a JL Audio…
