Pick up the October edition to read our Southampton Boat Show special, a review of the Prestige 680 and a group test of 33ft sportscruisers

The arrival of the October edition of Motor Boat & Yachting can only mean one thing: Southampton Boat Show. Our eight-page show preview details the 18 hottest models appearing at Mayflower Park so you don’t miss a thing.

This month’s cover star is the brilliantly innovative Prestige 680, which Jack Haines took on a two-day cruise from Croatia to Montenegro and back.

Next up we have a 33ft sportscruiser group test between the Bavaria 330 Sport, Elan Power 30 and Galeon 325 HTS. Which one will come out on top?

We have more group testing action in our New Tech section where we pit 5hp outboards from Honda, Suzuki, Lehr, Mariner, Yamaha and Tohatsu against each other.

Prestige 680 review - Motor Boat & Yachting

Our review of the Prestige 680 – MBY October 2015

Also in this section, editor Hugo puts Suzuki’s new 4-cylinder 200hp outboard through its paces in Poole.

The Used Boat this month is the globetrotting Nordhavn 40, a boat which is as solidly engineered as it is capable of taking you to far flung corners of the globe.

On the cruising front we review a hugely successful Readers’ Sea Trial where a host of MBY readers got behind the helms of some of the most thrilling sportsboats on the water.

And in a new three-part series, certified adventure addict John Boyle details the first stage of his delivery trip from Mallorca to Falmouth on his new Princess V39.

You can see all the videos from the October 2015 issue on our video page. Enjoy the issue.
