Project: Boston Boatworks BB44

Boston Boatworks introduces the BB44, the second model in the company’s Offshore Express Cruiser Series. The BB44 unites Doug Zurn’s acclaimed aesthetic refinement with the interior mastery of Winch Design and realizes this collaboration’s full potential through Boston Boatworks’ craftsmanship. The series-priced BB44 blends the efficiencies of Boston Boatworks’ experience in limited production, composite technology, and best methods and materials in manufacturing to produce a boat that rivals custom-built. The BB44 is configured for discerning cruising couples, families and guests who appreciate a safe, comfortable, functional ocean-worthy yacht well-appointed for enjoying day-use activities. The owner’s exclusive stateroom has private entry to a generous head and shower and features a queen-sized bed that slides aft to make servicing and changing linens easy. For kids and adult guests, the salon and pilot house tables lower to become double beds, curtained for privacy and both have independent night-time access to the head.  Alternatively this lower salon can also be ordered as a fully enclosed second stateroom.  Zurn’s hulls are known for their smooth, dry ride even at the BB44’s estimated top speed of 36 knots. Winch Design’s innovative living spaces draw in abundant light and fresh air, yielding an interior that is bright, spacious, functional, and elegant. The standard BB44 is powered by twin Volvo with stern drives. Hulls No. 1 and No. 2 are currently in production, with anticipated launch dates of late summer and October 2024, respectively.

New Model: Lyman-Morse Monhegan 42

Lyman-Morse recently launched the semi-custom Monhegan 42, the latest yacht from the long-standing and successful relationship between Lyman-Morse and C. Raymond Hunt Associates. Riding on Hunt’s time-tested deep-V hull design, the Monhegan 42 showcases Lyman-Morse’s proven method of creating series-built semi-custom cruisers and yachts. This allows owners to customize each boat to suit their needs within the existing design; and allows Lyman-Morse to provide many of the attributes of a custom yacht with far less lead time. The Monhegan 42’s power comes from twin Cummins 550-horsepower with traditional line shaft propulsion in tunnels for top speed up to 32 knots and a cruising of 28 knots.  As with every Lyman-Morse build, the Monhegan 42 combines traditional style with cutting-edge construction technology and modern amenities, such as Scrimp resin-infusion in the hull, which maximizes strength and reduces weight, Humphrey Interceptor trim tabs, and Side Power bow and stern thrusters.  The helm station of this third Lyman-Morse is custom to the owner’s specific needs, with oversized display screens. Accommodation below deck features a galley and dinette/lounge area for meal preperation and dining, a head with saparate shower staill, and primary stateroom forward. This owner wanted to be able to lie down on the settee and relax, so the team at Lyman incorporated a custom footwell into the layout to allow for optimal relaxation. Interior joinery is made from South American mahogany, with teak and wenge accents. The Monhegan 42 exemplifies Lyman-Morse’s unparalleled ability to produce bespoke, semi-custom boats that deliver unrivaled performance, safety, and convenience at sea.

Botnia present the project for a new Targa 41 model, sitting behind the 44 and 46 flagship models.  The Targa 41 looks to be based on a new platform rather, then the 2004 launched 42 model, which then became the current 44 and 46 models.  Like the bigger sisters the new Targa 41 will offer a living on the main deck, with two separate cabins areas, forward and midships sleeping five.  Both cabins will feature en-suite bathrooms, with the midships cabin offer a double berth and a single, and a difference from the bigger models will be the addition of larger vertical window serving the midships cabin.   The flybridge on the Targa is a cozy affair, offering an L-shaped dinette and helm station to port side.  The Botnia Targa 41 is powered by twin Volvo 400 to 480hp engines in stern drives of IPS pods drives.  Top speeds are estimated up to 42 knots probably reachable with the twin Volvo 440hp stern drive propulsion match up.

Mimi Libeccio 11 Cabin, one of the brand’s most storied models and the first gozzo in the series with a hard top, has been redesigned to offer a family or a group of friends the option of enjoying the boat’s outdoor spaces at any time of day: the stern cockpit has been extended to offer a generous central sun pad that is as unexpected and unusual as it is welcome on a boat this size. This completely redesigned setting joins the exterior galley and the relaxation area in the bow, which is fitted out with sun pads that can be converted into sofas. The interior of Libeccio 11 Cabin New Version 2023 offers a galley or sofa area and two cabins sleeping two: the double cabin has a separate bathroom and two entrances, while the second cabin with twin beds can be converted into a double thanks to a system of concealed partitions.

Project: Lyman-Morse Monhegan 42

Lyman-Morse is building the new Monhegan 42. A continuation of a long-standing relationship between Lyman-Morse and C. Raymond Hunt Associates, the Monhegan 42 represents the Maine's builder continued success with creating a series of semi-custom yachts that allow an owner to customize a vessel to suit their needs using an existing design platform. This proven process delivers all the attributes of a custom yacht, with far less lead time.  Hull no. 3 of the Monhegan 42 series rides on Hunt’s renowned deep-V hull design and will get power from a pair of Cummins 550hp, giving her a cruising speed of 28 knots, with a top end of 32 knots. The helm station of hull no. 3 is custom to the owner’s specific needs, with oversized 17-inch display screens, as well as bow and stern thrusters for easy docking. Below, there is a galley and dinette/lounge area for meal prep and dining, a head, shower, and primary stateroom forward. This owner wanted to be able to lie down on the settee and relax, so the team at Lyman incorporated a custom footwell into the layout to allow for optimal relaxation. Interior joinery is made from South American mahogany, with teak and wenge accents. Additional options abound on this model, demonstrating a key attribute to the semi-custom series approach. There are four available configurations, including flybridge, extended cruiser, and open. The 42 employs the SCRIMP resin infusion method which maximizes strength, reduces weight, and delivers a precise lay-up.  While hull no. 3’s owner is a longtime boater, this is their first foray into a semi-custom build. When surveying the industry, they chose Lyman-Morse due to their unparalleled ability to produce bespoke, semi-custom boats that deliver unrivaled performance, safety, and convenience at sea.

Project: Apreamare Gozzo 35 Cabin

Apreamare present the project for the Gozzo 35 Cabin.  Building on Cataldo Aprea’s insight, Marco Casali and Umberto Tagliavini have created a new version of the best selling Gozzo 35 for year-round navigation, featuring a newly designed deckhouse with an elegant contoured structure.  Designed for owners who want to be able to cruise all year round, in all weather conditions and for several days at a time when desired, as in northern Europe waters, the great lakes of North America and Turkey, the new Cabin version of the Gozzo 35 is the thinking of reaching out to new customer segments and markets.  All and this was the big challenge without betraying the winning spirit that animates Apreamare’s projects: seaworthiness, hull stability, comfort and beautiful lines inspired by the centuries-old tradition of Sorrento gozzo boats.  So, as needs and lifestyles change, the Sorrento boatyard’s answer is quick to arrive, with the help of Marco Casali and Umberto Tagliavini to create a boat that follows in the footsteps of her open sister, which they designed, but with solutions that revolutionise the concept. Elegant and impactful, the deckhouse bathes the entire cockpit in a profound sense of protection: the volume of the structure is made to look lighter by the extensive perimeter glazing, which floods the lounge with light and offers guests a spectacular 360-degree view of the horizon. The interiors and exteriors talk to each other in perfect harmony through a four-section plate glass door. Its functions are twofold: to create a single space connecting the indoor and outdoor settings or, when closed, to protect guests from excessive heat or bad weather. Here, in fact, as well as the helm station and a functional galley behind it with a sink and hob, there is also an L-shaped dinette to enjoy meals in company and in maximum comfort.  The iconic status of the Sorrento gozzo boat is highlighted on this new Cabin version not only by the intense sensation of living in close contact with the sea and nature, but also by the care lavished on onboard comfort: the as always very generous stern platform, an extensive sun pad forward with panoramic seating, the pull-out L-shaped table seating six in the cockpit and the wide side decks. The high bulwarks have also made it possible to raise the deck and therefore increase the volume of the interiors, without compromising the boat’s lines. As a result, the height of the gunwale is 20 cm lower and a rail has been added to maintain the boat’s lateral flow, but also and most importantly for reasons of safety, given this new model’s exceptional cruising capabilities. This design solution delivers truly outstanding volume for a boat classified as under ten metres. Design work also focused on the liveability of the spaces below deck, with the aim of creating a layout with two cabins and a bathroom. While the forward area remains basically the same, the new layout brings benefits for the bathroom and shower, which now offer more surface area. The guest cabin amidships also gains in terms of width, with room for a bed that is 140 cm wide at head level. In terms of propulsion, the boat offers the practicality and reliability of a traditional in-line shaft arrangement with two Volvo Penta 270hp engines, and or the same engines with stern drives.  The first Apreamare Gozzo 35 Cabin is scheduled to hit the water in the early months of 2024.

Improve-it = Hinckley Picnic Boat 40 S

Hinckley's Picnic Boat was the start of the down East revolution 25 years ago, this customer driven product evolution has grown the Hinckley family over the last 25 years. To satisfy the day-boating product mission, the Picnic Boat 40 S was designed with an interior settee that converted into an oversized v-berth. The first eight boats were built this way until a client asked for a large “Island” berth for sleeping only. Aptly named the “Island King”, a new arrangement option was born. The evolution continued as Hinckley listened to customer needs for entertaining guests. Cutting boards, compact ice compartments and custom mouldings to secure tumblers while preparing drinks are just some of the customization that has helped evolve the Picnic Boat 40 S. Another evolution in the Picnic Boat 40 S was the patented Side door, again the result of owner feedback who wanted an easier way to board their Hinckley.

Project: MJM 4z

MJM presents the project for the 4z model with inboard stern drive Volvo engines. Launched in the second half of 2022 with outboard power, this traditional cruiser has been in a lot of talks thanks to its asymmetric design which offers the comfort of a centre console to that of a cruise capable cruiser.  Thanks to this design by Zurn the MJM 4z offers a a four berth accommodation in two areas, including of which is a separate shower head to starboard and in between the sleeping areas. The living and the galley in the MHM 4z is all located on the main deck under the pilot fully enclosed hard-top area.  Power numbers for the diesel stern drive Volvo power are not announced, although the MJM 4z hull number one which was powered by twin Mercury 600hp, which is the larger engine option available reached a top speeds of 52 knots.

Project: Estensi Targa 38 GT

Estensi present the project for the Targa 38 GT.  Designed as all Estensi by Zuccheri, the 38 GT launches the new Targa line which replaces the previous America range as the sports open line from the Italian boat builder, with the Targa offering classic traditional lines mixed with a modern super structure.  Unlike the America the first Targa takes the hull and similar lines from the down East inspired Goldstar range with the difference, at least for this first 38 GT of a Mediterrean central sun-pad open cockpit deck layout. It will be interesting if Estensi will follow this pattern with the other Goldstar models, which would see it in little time if the Italian builder wants with four additional models, considering that the tooling is nearly the same with the exception of the hard top section.  Down below the Estensi Targa 38 GT offers two layouts, that for two cabins, or an open plan layout with a large cabin and an L-shaped lounger.  The Estensi Targa 38 GT is powered by twin shaft line engines from 280 up to 400hp.

Project: Lyman-Morse Hood 35 Flybridge

Following the successful launch of the hardtop express Hood 35 by Lyman-Morse, construction of the flybridge version is now underway at the company’s facility in Thomaston, Maine. The anticipated launch date is the spring of 2023.  The Hood 35 series delivers the best of a semi-custom platform, allowing for reduced build time and efficiencies. Yet customers can still enjoy Lyman-Morse’s world-renowned customization to ensure their 35 is built to suit their specific needs. This hybrid approach is a rare offering in yachts with a length overall of less than 40 feet.  The benefits of this approach are evident when comparing and contrasting the first two 35s. For example, hull No. 2 with the flybridge features an enclosed aft bulkhead and places the galley-up to allow for additional accommodations belowdecks. In contrast, hull No. 1 is open from the helm area to the cockpit with the galley below. Both choices include a spacious head with shower. The owners of hull No. 2 also selected a Seakeeper gyro stabilizer system, air conditioning, and a generator for extended cruising.  This flexibility extends to the available power options. C.W. Hood and Lyman-Morse offer three different engine options. Hull No. 1 is powered by twin Yanmar 440hp coupled to a pair of Hamilton Waterjet achieving speeds of more than forty knots. The new flybridge model will be equipped with twin Volvo Penta 440hp driving stern drives and providing an estimated top speed of 40-plus knots with an expected cruising speed around 30-plus knots. A twin outboard version is also available.  Another noteworthy element of the new flybridge model is its fluid, seamless profile, compared to other mid-size bridge models. The new flybridge design profile is purposeful as well as extremely functional with bench seating for two to three persons and a centerline upper helm station. The carbon-fiber flybridge and deck keep the center of gravity low and optimize the yacht’s strength while reducing weight overall.

Project: Boston Boatworks Daychaser 48

After fifteen years of service, tens of thousands of outings, the use of third partly build boats, a demand for a larger more open vessel  has pushed Barton and Gary to design there own Daychaser 48. With help coming from Zurn design, and being built at Boston Boatworks known for building the MJM line, the Daychaser 48 offers full deck use from fore to aft, while a cabin below offers a single berth, shower head, and an office space. The idea here is to have a dedicated traditional down East lobster boat build for the purpose of club membership. It will be interesting to see if the Daychaser 48 will stay in the area or will become something more. Powered by twin Cummins 550hp with Hamilton jet propulsion the Daychaser 48 is expected to reach a top speed up to 35 knots.  Hull one is expected to launch in 2022, with other hulls following in order to renew the Barton and Gray fleet.

New Model: Lyman-Morse Hood 35

Lyman-Morse celebrated the launch of Shadow, Hull 1 of the new Hood 35 series. The Hood 35 follows the recent successful collaboration between Lyman-Morse and C.W. Hood Design on the praised 57 model. Similar to the 57, this stunning cold-molded pocket-cruiser defines a niche all its own, encompassing advanced construction technology, world-renowned craftsmanship, and superior performance. Hull No. 1 Shadow is designed as a hardtop express and equipped with some of the most advanced marine technology available today. Shadow’s tech-savvy owner sought to outfit the vessel with the latest marine technology. She is one of the first dayboat-sized vessels to utilize Raymarine’s new Digital Switching System, YachtSense. The Raymarine vessel control system offers digital switching, which replaces traditional mechanical switches and circuit breakers with digitally controlled power distribution modules, significantly reducing the size and length of cabling required to distribute power throughout the boat. Hull No. 1 features twin 440hp Yanmar 6LY coupled to a pair of Hamilton Waterjet HJX29s. This is the first pleasure vessel in the USA to be equipped with these brand new jets. More efficient, more powerful, and with military grade controls, Shadow reaches speeds of forty plus knots. Shadow is also the first pleasure vessel to be equipped for autonomous running with the state-of-the-art Sea Machines system. Lyman-Morse is working closely with the owner and Sea Machines to have this boat confidently guiding herself and her passengers in the near future.
