REVIEWS

022 Elite AT43
Once upon a time, New Zealand had a thriving production boat industry. Now only a few diehards remain. But an established boatbuilder-designer combo has entered the market, standing up against the tide of imports and producing a new 13.2m sedan-style cruiser.

This year’s range of Yamaha Waverunners bring a host of new features and technologies, making them particularly enjoyable for fishing.

044 Stryda Cat 660C Amphibious
New Zealand’s marine industry often delivers great innovation. Some ideas are radical, others an evolution of an earlier concept. Like the Stryda 600C. Most of her design aspects are well-proven, but there’s a fresh approach that works on every level.

068 Beneteau Swift Trawler 35
When it came to choosing Brendan and Vicki’s first launch, it was Vicki who did most of the research and made all the calls because she knew exactly what was needed.

BY LAWRENCE SCHÄFFLER

Today’s boat security systems protect your pride and joy against theft, accidents – and even angry birds.
BY CRAIG RITCHIE
