SeaVee Boats has launched a series of center consoles with stepped hulls — the Z Series — that offer better efficiency and overall performance. I checked out the 390-Z late last year, and the 32- and 34-footers should be ready for viewing at the Miami International Boat Show in February.
The Sea Ray 510 Fly offers plenty of living accommodations for cruising but also an “outdoor, 360-degree experience,” says Ron Berman, Brunswick Corp. vice president of product development and engineering. “The flybridge is so expansive and feature-rich on this boat. The cockpit becomes an extension of the saloon, and the flybridge is your rooftop patio.”
Boston Whaler has added two models to its Dauntless fleet: the 210 and 240. These boats aim to deliver the goods for multiple inshore boating activities better than any previous Whaler center console, says Lenn Scholz, vice president of development and engineering.
The clients knew exactly what they wanted in their custom yacht, says Drew Lyman, president of Maine builder Lyman-Morse. “They needed jetdrives because they are critical for this area, with all the lobster pots,” Lyman says. “They also wanted a custom interior — a mahogany-dominant, simple and elegant layout.”
