REVIEWS

018 Haines Hunter SF635
Any new boat from Haines Hunter is big news, but a totally new design, fresh styling and up-to-date construction make the just released SF/SP635 an especially significant arrival.
BY JOHN EICHELSHEIM

038 Monte Carlo 52
The first impression of the new Monte Carlo 52 is that she’s big – high and wide with masses of interior volume. A trip out onto the Hauraki Gulf demonstrates that she’s big on luxury, too.
BY SARAH ELL

066 Herley 3400 Electric Cat
The hottest topic in boating today is electric propulsion, and right now the Herley 3400 is perhaps the most luxurious yet practical electric boat in New Zealand.
BY NORMAN HOLTZHAUSEN

074 King Water Jet 4m
There are jet boats and then there are RIBs. At least that is how it used to be with the jets carving up the braided rivers and the RIBs performing as yacht tenders and coach boats. This boat blends roles.
BY MATT VANCE
