Pick up our September edition to read our review of the Marex 375, Sunseeker 101, Linssen Grand Sturdy 52.9 and much more
We’ve got all the bases covered in the September edition of Motor Boat & Yachting, whether you’re more inclined towards 40ft coupes, steel-hulled cruisers or 100ft superyachts.
And that’s without even touching on our ultimate Cannes Yachting Festival preview, in which we give you a sneak peak at the 15 new boats that make this show a must-visit.
Our cover star is the brand new Marex 375, a charming Scandinavian coupe that is as practical as it is versatile. After a test drive near Oslo, Dave Marsh delivers his verdict.
Next up is the Linssen Grand Sturdy 52.9, a steel-hulled masterpiece from the Dutch masters, which is hard to fault in any way.
Sticking with Linssen and Peter Cumberlidge recounts how he drove a Grand Sturdy 40.9 from Paris to Auxerre on a memorable delivery run through the delightful waterways of Burgundy.
Meanwhile, Alan Harper takes a look at the first two Sunseeker 101 superyachts to be delivered – their sheer variety bears testament to the Poole-based company’s custom yacht credentials.
Right at the other end of the scale, we publish the diary of Wayne Ingram, who spent seven days and nights on board a tiny liferaft, raising more than £10,000 for Great Ormond Street Hospital in the process. He explains how he survived on a diet of ration packs, fish eyes and rainwater.
Down in Swanwick, Chris Jefferies has been inspecting a used Prestige 42S and finds that it manages to punch well above its weight with several premium features.
Finally, editor Hugo explains how he gave his Karnic 2250 a much-needed makeover with the help of synthetic teak specialists Flexiteek.
