Enter into a World of Luxury and Comfort Aboard the New Jeanneau 51

Inspired by the tremendous success of the Jeaneau 64 introduced in 2014 and the Jeanneau 54 introduced just this past fall, comes a brand new yacht for 2017, the Jeanneau 51. Once again the design team of Philippe Briand and Andrew Winch have teamed up to create a new standard in the growing luxury yacht […]

Jeanneau 64, We Meet Again

  Argentous, Trois Vignes, Amandine, Madelene ll, Serenity, and now Celerity, are all Jeanneau 64s that I’ve had the pleasure of sailing and spending time aboard since the 64 was first introduced in Corsica in June, 2014.

And while no two rendezvous’ have been exactly the same, they have all shared the same basic DNA: sailing, […]

Right from the very beginning, the Velasco 37 was designed and built with affordability in mind. Powered by twin Volvo D4s or optional D6s, the Velasco […]

Annapolis is a great place for a boat show. I mean, the town is uber historic, and charming, and quaint…but…after many, many years as a boat tester and judge for both SAIL and Cruising World magazines, I can also attest to the fact that Annapolis can sometimes lack one of the most important ingredients one needs to conduct a proper boat test—WIND. However…this was […]
