Century Coronado 21

Steve Vogelzang has a thing for wooden boats, an affliction he shares with many fellow members of The Antique and Classic Boat Society. The 57-year-old Holland, Mich., importer grew up with them, bought his first one more than 30 years ago and has owned a fleet of “fine wooden boats,” as he calls them, from such builders as Chris-Craft and Hacker.



Bertram 31 Sportfish

It was one of those perfect fishing trips that Bertram 31 owners love to talk about. Bob Levesque, his son, Tyler, and six others headed out from Madeira Beach, Fla., around 9:30 p.m., in his 1970 Bertram 31 SportFish in fine weather, with tanks full and rods ready.



Robinhood 33

The 6 a.m. departure began innocently enough for Dave and Katrina Miller. It was calm, with just a sprinkle of late-June rain, as the eager couple slipped out of the harbor in Georgetown, Maine, in the 12-year-old, 33-foot powerboat they’d just bought. Destination: Annapolis, Md., 650 miles south.



Grand Banks 38 Eastbay EX

Bill and Nancy Webster have spent a lifetime boating together, dividing the duties and sharing the work and the pleasures of their avocation. So when it came time to downsize from their much-loved 42-foot trawler, the couple from Clinton, Conn., shared the buying experience, too. And the Grand Banks 38 Eastbay EX they bought a year ago has already proved to be a good choice: seaworthy, safe and comfortable.

Contender 31

For a guy with a passion for fishing, it’s like living next door to heaven. Dr. Howard Khani has a house in Pompano Beach, Fla., on a deep-water canal with no fixed bridges just 14 minutes by water from the Atlantic. And thanks to his unconventional schedule — he has a select group of private patients — he can take advantage of the location.

“I’m usually able to go fishing three or four days a week,” says the 50-year-old physician, who runs a 2000 Contender 31. “And sometimes I can sneak away for a fifth.”
