In New Tech we take a look at Evinrude’s new outboard joystick system plus speakers from Fusion and JL Audio and the stylish Sven Cycles portable bicycle.

In How To this month we use drone footage to show the best techniques for picking up a mooring buoy from a powerboat and in the Used Boat section the spotlight is on the fabulous Sunseeker Superhawk 43 and we find four 40ft flybridges for a bargain.

There is a very special account in the cruising section this month as we delve behind the scenes into Safehaven Marine’s record breaking circumnavigation of Ireland via Rockall. Their race to one of the most desolate spots on earth is a must read.

On a more genteel note, Peter Cumberlidge explores delightful Denmark by boat and we have the second instalment of Thomas Kittel’s journey around the British Isles on his Marlow 72.

Finally, editor Hugo tells the story of his 70-year-old family launch that was subject to a full restoration courtesy of Portsmouth’s Boatbuilding Training College.

Enjoy the issue.
