Sea Ray continues to pump out innovative boats in the express cruiser category, and three new-from-the-keel-up models — 350 and 510 Sundancers and the 370 Venture — are making the rounds at the boat shows.
The MJM 36z, built by Boston BoatWorks, has been modified for 2013. The express cruiser now has a separate shower in the cabin and a centerline walkthrough transom door.
The dual console is making some serious headway on the comeback trail, and Boston Whaler has bolstered the revival with a 23- and a 27-footer in its new Vantage series. These are new boats from the keel up.
Beneteau, the French builder known more in North America for its sailboats, continues to promote its powerboat line on this side of the Atlantic with the launch of the Barracuda 9. The 29-footer is the first outboard-powered boat (twin 225-hp Yamaha 4-strokes or a single to 350 hp) Beneteau has ever offered in North America.
Twin Vee Catamarans has introduced a hydrofoil 35-footer that excels in rough water, delivering a fast, smooth and efficient ride, says Roger Dunshee, CEO of the Fort Pierce, Fla., company.
