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…

monte carlo yachts debut

Yachting just returned from Monfalcone, Italy, where it got a first look at the next generation of Monte Carlo Yachts: the 70 (above left) and the 66 (above right). The models, penned by Nuvolari & Lenard (top), retain the builder’s design DNA with rounded hullside windows and high freeboard forward. But the design evolved too. Changes include cut-down bulwarks and sole-to-ceiling windows on the 70, and a sport-fisher-inspired profile on the 66, to name a few. Integral fuel tanks add about a foot of space to the master staterooms in both yachts. Stay tuned to Yachting for reviews of these new models. READER FEEDBACK Looking for photos and yacht news?

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…

breaking boundaries

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…

back to business

61'1" LENGTH OVERALL 18'3" MAXIMUM BEAM AFTER 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…
