trailers triumphant

Can you name an invention or innovation with more societal impact than the automobile? The computer might be a contender. In any event, the car did more than change the way we live.

The boat is 20 feet long and 8 feet wide. The cabin itself is 10 feet. Inside, there’s a comfy leather couch, a worktable, a full galley, and a sleeping loft up in the gable. The head, which is a composting toilet, is…

marquis yachts 42

Marquis Yachts is set to release its new 42 dayboat around the 2019 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, with an eye toward boaters who want to live large on the water. The boat will be powered by twin 480 hp Cummins QSB inboards and is expected to top out at 38 mph. Marquis also plans to offer the boat with either twin or triple outboards on the transom.

blackfin 332

Blackfin’s new 332 center-console is the latest and largest of its five models. The lines feature a high bow and a deep 22-degree transom deadrise for great seaworthiness. Handling is exemplary with Mercury or Yamaha power. Equipped with electronic throttle and shift and power steering, the 332 turns on a dime. The luxurious fisher spins your wallet upward from $318,000. There’s luxury bow seating, and a forward lounge on the console face. Swing-out bolsters form two more lounges to look over the bow. Aft, there is foldout seating in the cockpit, and the extra-wide, contoured bucket helm seats mean everybody gets a good ride. We like the black-and-white gelcoat finish, and repeating it on the underside of the hardtop should reduce glare, ease eyestrain, and serve to give the impression of…
