Bayliner has stopped building and selling cruisers from 24 to 35 feet in the United States to focus on new categories. This year the builder has introduced four new boats: two 21-footers, plus 19- and 16-footers.
The Granturismo, a prototype 46-foot luxury day cruiser by Silver Arrows Marine, was designed in collaboration with Mercedes-Benz Style. The British builder is aiming for a 2014 U.S. debut at the Miami International Boat Show. www.silverarrowsmarine.com

Under a tin shed in Manns Harbor, N.C., with no power or plumbing, Paul Spencer in 1996 founded Spencer Yachts. Today, his Wanchese, N.C., company builds handsome custom sportfishing boats from 37 to 87 feet, blending Carolina flare with Florida styling, and ranging from $1.3 million to $9 million (www.spenceryachtsinc.com).
