Boating Market's Newest and Hottest Gear

Bad Elf GPS Pro

Cool Stuff found at the boat shows

Soundings was on the ground — and on the water — at the big boat shows earlier this year in search of, well, cool stuff. Here’s a sampling of what editors Rich Armstrong, Jim Flannery and Chris Landry came away with.

Cigarette AMG Electric Drive Concept

Touted as the world’s most powerful and fastest electrically driven boat, the Mercedes Cigarette AMG Electric Drive Concept has 12 electric motors — 2,220 horses — and hits 99 mph. Four 60-kWh batteries are energized by two 22-kW chargers. A full charge takes seven hours. www.cigaretteracing.com



Robship Hook & Moor

The Hook & Moor boat hook threads lines through mooring balls and post rings by using the boat’s own mooring line for one-step tie-ups without using a messenger or guide line.




This portable cleat can be affixed to a piling or other objects up to 48 inches in circumference and can be used as a hand-hold, to tie up a boat, or as a handy hook for supplies.



Gill windproof fleece

This fleece has a wind- and waterproof lining, and the soft outer fabric has a water-repellent finish, making it warm and comfortable to wear.
