The January issue of Motor Boat & Yachting is out today, with an exclusive first test of the brand new Princess S65

In this month’s edition of Motor Boat & Yachting we get an exclusive first test of the Princess S65, which is the first model from the Plymouth yard to be built from the ground-up as a sportsbridge.

Jack Haines takes a test drive and records a top speed of 37 knots before heading below decks to inspect the spacious cabins.

Elsewhere in the January issue, Nick Burnham heads to the Italian town of Rapallo to test out the new Chris-Craft Launch 36, which boasts deep walkaround side decks and punchy 39-knot performance.

Keeping with the Chris-Craft theme, we also talk to Philip Badder who has spent the last year revamping a 1997 Concept 27.

For this month’s Used Boat report, Chris Jefferies examines the Stevens 1180S – a Dutch displacement cruiser with comfort and practicality in spades.

Meanwhile in our latest cruising feature, Peter Cumberlidge explores the stunning coastline of Campania.

And in a new series, Howard Walker sets off from Holland in a 56ft steel trawler yacht, aiming for the Mediterranean via the French inland waterways.
