REVIEWS

024 Extreme 915
Because every boatie’s notion of perfection is different, having options when buying a new boat is useful. Whakatane’s Extreme Boats excels in such flexibility, as is demonstrated by two of its 915s.
BY LAWRENCE SCHÄFFLER

044 Hanse 508
It wasn’t that long ago a 15m cruising yacht was considered big enough to require full-time crew. How times have changed. Today many consider 15m yachts – like the Hanse 508 – perfect for a couple.
BY JOHN MACFARLANE

066 Princess V60
Princess Yachts is the largest builder of recreational vessels in the UK. The first Princess V60 in New Zealand is neither the largest nor the smallest of the luxurious, sporty V Series range, but it’s an impressive vessel in every respect.
BY JOHN EICHELSHEIM

096 McLay 741 Raptor
A boat that can operate on land as well as on water is obviously attractive: amphibious vessels and their driving technology have proliferated in recent years. This one takes a slightly different approach.

FEATURES

036 Cruising the Florida Keys
A mere 90 miles from Cuba, Key West is very much the end of the road (or the beginning of a new one) for sailors going south, down the iconic ‘islands in the stream’ as described by one of its most famous residents – Ernest Hemingway.
BY KEVIN GREEN

052 Outboard evolution
Outboard manufacturers continue to innovate with more power and features than ever. Good thing too, with competitors coming to market – including diesel and electric alternatives. We take a look at what’s new in 2020.
BY CRAIG RITCHIE

060 Round North Island Race
It’s one of NZ sailing’s biggest challenges but also one of its most popular events. Just finishing the SSANZ Two-Handed Round North Island Race is a major accomplishment.
BY SARAH ELL

088 Existence doubtful
Things get really awkward when your chart suggests you are near a hazard that might – or might not – actually exist. Like Sandy Island, for example…
BY MATT VANCE

092 Saving Tinker
Sean Garwood likens his first view of Tinker to seeing an abandoned puppy in the SPCA that needs a home.
BY REBECCA HAYTER

112 Jackie’s boat
A 22-foot 1964 Riva Ariston once owned by former US First Lady Jackie Kennedy took the top award – the Jens Hansen Trophy – at the 21st NZ Antique & Classic Boat Show in March.
BY LAWRENCE SCHÄFFLER

128 Final grounding
In a quiet backwater of Aotea Great Barrier Island, an unruly fringe of foliage tumbles down to within metres of the rusting steel plates of the dredger Wanganui.
