REVIEWS

022 Caribbean 420 Express
The sedan version of the 40 Flybridge, the Caribbean 420 Express looks sleeker and more stylish, and though not primarily set up for game fishing, she has everything you need for a bit of billfish trolling or live-baiting.

052 Dickey Semifly 45
All Dickey Boats are large for their size, but a walk-through of the Semifly 45 is a feast for the senses. She’s also built for long-distance cruising, with enough fuel and water to keep you going for weeks at a time. A good option for a muchneeded Christmas vacation.
