Sunseeker has officially entered the fight to capture the sportsbridge market with its new 68 Sport Yacht, tested this month. But are these sportscruiser/flybridge hybrids just a flash in the pan or has Sunseeker come up with something special?
Also on test this month is one of the most extraordinary boats you’re ever likely to see, the Code-X. Dreamt up by a Swiss scientist and built by powerboat racing legend Fabio Buzzi, this methanol-powered speedster has to be seen to be believed.
The heavily customisable, 5,200hp Mangusta 94 is given a workout and we scour the market to try and find three stellar second-hand sportscruiser buys for under £150k, digging up a Sunseeker Camargue 47, Atlantis 39 and Fairline Targa 37.
Sardinia’s stunning Maddelena islands are the subject of our main cruising feature this month, but we also join an early season cruise up the Seine to Paris and rejoin our Azimut owners as they leave Venice and head back to Istria in northern Croatia.
One feature everyone will want to read is about an MBY reader who halved his fuel bill. Through an exhaustive series of tests off the South Coast, the owner of the 23m semi-displacement motor yacht slashed his diesel bill by an amazing 60%!
Our product testers have been kept busy this month dunking their smartphones in water to find out who makes the best waterproof cover, and we find out from one reader what it costs to move your boat from mainland Spain to the Balearics for a season.
Finally, and on a more serious note, we also feature a detailed report on the investigation into the tragic RIB accident in Cornwall in May 2013 that saw two people – a father and his daughter – lose their lives. Find out what happened here.
