We’ve got four videos for you to enjoy with our June issue, including a powercat test, man overboard tips, and an iconic used Fairline
This month’s clutch of videos is online and there’s something to suit all tastes with the June issue of Motor Boat & Yachting.
Jack Haines kicks off our motor cat special by heading to La Rochelle to put the brand new Fountaine Pajot 37 through its paces.
This clever cruiser is the first of its kind, as it was built from the ground-up to be a powercat, rather than starting out as a sailing catamaran and simply having the mast cut off. But how does it drive?
Next up, our technical guru Dave Marsh gets the rare opportunity to test three different engines on three identical boats.
The XO270 is our base vessel and Dave uses it to compare the performance, refinement, running costs and practicality of the Mercury Verado 300hp petrol outboard, the Volvo D6 370hp diesel sterndrive and the Yanmar 8LV 370hp diesel sterndrive.
Meanwhile in Cruise Further, Cruise Safer we take a look at the scary issue of recovering a member of your crew who has fallen overboard.
Editor Hugo Andreae draws the short straw and takes the plunge, before yachting instructor Jon Mendez demonstrates four ways to safely get him back on deck.
Finally, Chris Jefferies inspects our Used Boat of the Month, which is a particularly well maintained Fairline Squadron 58. To watch this month’s videos, follow the links or click on the playlist above.
