Last month we brought you Sunseeker’s first attempt at a true sportsbridge motor yacht, the 68 Sport Yacht, and in this issue we take to the azure seas off Miami to test Princess’s first sportscriuser/flybridge hybrid, the S72.

Boat test editor Jack was also racking up the air miles flying to Italy this month to test the new 64 Fly from Absolute. Is this the boat to drag your attentions away from the mainstream British yards? Find out here.

Editor Hugo, meanwhile, has been on the Isle of Wight meeting the man designing and building his perfect 35ft South Coast runabout with TT Boat Designs, the company behind the legendary Nelson hull.

The final boat on test in the May issue is the blue-water Privateer Flybridge 49. Portsmouth to Positano on one tank of fuel is just the beginning of this steel, Dutch-built boat’s charms. It’s also got a standard spec most yards can only dream about.

Sweden features large in this issue. First, Peter Cumberlidge takes us on a tour of the country’s gold coast, and we follow two readers as they embark on an epic mission to find their perfect boat, ending up with a Fleming moored in Gothenburg.

The sun is finally out in the UK, so we decided to wrap up all the best spring boat shows for you to visit (most of which are free!) and we also join our Azimut cruisers as they complete their second season in Croatia.

Hugo was in action again this month, digging around the brokerage market to uncover a couple of Dale Classic 45s for our used boat report. And we find out from one reader what it’s like to keep a boat in the Caribbean and cruise the tropical Exumas.

Finally, we put six of the best waterproof tablets to the test, find out more about a team-up between Caterpillar and Zeus on a new drive and hear from our legal expert on what to do if osmosis strikes within the warranty period.
