PBR’s Mark Featherstone gains access to Volvo’s secret development centre in Sweden to trial what could foreseeably represent a game-changer in propulsion technology for the larger cruiser market. One of the more memorable experiences I had during my time with the adventurer Steve Fossett was a visit to Lockheed Martin’s experimental establishment in the highly classified Area 51. It was quite a privilege to gain access to this top-secret aircraft design facility known as the ‘Skunk Works’, a remote enclave in the Nevada desert. It was with a certain sense of déjà vu, therefore, that I found m ..read more

With the rise of the big outboard, has the venerable petrol sterndrive had its day? Greg Copp explores this emergent dilemma and is surprised by his findings … Rarely do we get the chance to test two identical boats with two different engines, in this case outboard and sterndrive. With outboards now taking a bigger slice of the sports boat market, how they stack up against sterndrives of similar output is something we were keen to find out. Luckily, Solent-based Marina Marbella just happened to have two of Sea Ray’s latest sports boats in stock: the outboard-powered 210 SPOe ..read more

The Sun Sport 230 OB is a Sea Ray model built in Europe and, it would appear, very much intended for the European, as opposed to the US, market. Barry Thompson investigates this likeable, trailerable, family-orientated cabin weekender. While we’re more familiar with Sea Ray’s innovative take on the bowrider, with models such as the Sundancer and SLX Series, the new Sun Sport is all about maximising the benefits of the trailerable cabin weekender. Pursuing this theme, Sea Ray have launched the Sun Sport series, which comprises two hull platforms: the 230 (6.96m) and the 250 (7.90m). The former ..read more

With the style of a gentleman’s launch, plenty of deck space and a trademark schooner stern, the Gozzo 45 is clearly Italian.

Due to be presented this September at the Cannes Yachting Festival, this new boat features ‘superior livability’ with a fast and capable seagoing hull. It also has the choice ..read more
