REVIEWS

018 Riviera 64 Sports Motor Yacht
The new 64 SMY takes the best from Riviera’s largest luxury cruising yacht models and incorporates them in a more compact design.
BY JOHN EICHELSHEIM

042 X-Yachts Xp38
Good things come to those who wait, and patience has paid off for Auckland yachtsman Frans de Court, in the form of his new X-Yachts Xp38. She’s a true performance-cruiser, with a raft of go-fast enhancements to boost her competitiveness.
BY SARAH ELL

068 Jeanneau Merry Fisher 1095
Most buyers contemplating a mid-sized launch face the prospect of dealing with inboard diesels. But the emergence of compact, powerful and fuel-efficient four-stroke outboards has changed all that.
BY NORMAN HOLTZHAUSEN

086 Dickey Custom 950
After reviewing the Dickey Semifly 32 last year I’m another of those writers who anticipate nothing but the best from this Napier company. Most remarkably for her size, she’s a trailerable boat.
BY MATT VANCE

FEATURES

Continuing Bruce Goodwin’s personal account of the sinking of the yacht Essence off Northland last year, and the crew’s rescue.
BY BRUCE GOODWIN

038 Hove to
What to do when it all turns to custard at sea. The dynamics of heaving to are relatively simple – and it could save your life.
BY MATT VANCE

050 The Rime & the Albatross
The Rime of the Ancient Mariner is a lengthy, somewhat obscure poem, but perhaps its greatest legacy is kick-starting the seabird conservation movement.
BY LAWRENCE SCHÄFFLER

054 Sailing a legend
Sailing my childhood fantasy yacht – Gipsy Moth IV – was a dream come true, recalls Kevin Green.
BY KEVIN GREEN

080 Lives of knives
While not being the sharpest knife in the box, I nevertheless have a point. Why every sailor should always carry this faithful companion.
BY KEVIN GREEN

110 Little beauty
A brief look at the short end of ocean cruising. They may have pram bows and a wide beam, but the SCAMP is a versatile little vessel.
BY LINDSAY WRIGHT

114 Expedition by Strannik
With his company Heritage Expeditions, Rodney Russ has been to places about as far from civilisation as you can go. He recently commissioned a new 24m sail-assisted expedition vessel.
BY MATT VANCE

122 PredictWind
It’s one of the most widely-used wind apps on the planet – it all started here in New Zealand.
