On sale: 4th Sep
The Southampton Boat Show is upon us and in the October issue of Motor Boat & Yachting we are celebrating all the new boats that you're going to be able to see at this year's show. Our preview includes 28 new models from Sunseeker to Sealine and Princess to Prestige, it's all there. One boat making its show debut is the Dale Classic 35, which we have followed from the design stages with owner Bill Slee and naval architect Arthur Mursell, through to the painstaking build at Dale Sailing in Neyland, north Wales and finally the test, which you can read in this issue. Our other tests include the bonkers Revolver 44GT, Princess's 82 and 88 and Dave Marsh reports on the new Azimut 50, an Italian flybridge that genuinely has the driving thrills to take it to the British yards. Our Boat Master section includes news of a 200hp diesel outboard and in the second part of our Cruise Further, Cruise Safer series we look at how to master the art of stern-to berthing. Finally, our cruising section is bursting this month with Hugo's report on a long weekend spent in the Isles of Scilly, Peter Cumberlidge's guide to the Gironde estuary and some of the finest vineyards in the world and an amazing story about Richard Reddyhoff and his wavepiercer MarySlim going non-stop from Portland to Rockall and back. It's a great read. Enjoy the issue.
