Improve-it = Dale Classic 45

The Dale Classic 45 is a special boat in the hearts of lovers for British made traditional down East inspired lobster cruisers.  Currently the team at Dale are over the moon as they are building Classic 45 hull number twelve, for a model which debuted in 2003.  With these numbers one understands that Dale is not your usual production builder and that every unit is made to order and very bespoke, by the lucky customer who ordered it.  Designed by Arthur Mursell the 2024 Dale Classic 45 will feature some new styling and state of the art innovations.  We still do not know all of these new features but Dale glimpsed us on the improved Classic 45; custom made console designed totally with owner input, aft wheel house patio door in teak with drop down bulkhead, and a new master suite dressing table with side lockers and drawers maximizing every available space.  Current flagship of Dale six model line up, the Classic 45 offers a two cabins two heads interior with a forward master suite, and is powered by twin 450hp engines as standard, with options going for up to 600hp units.  Propulsion is traditional straight line shaft with the standard engines giving up to 24 knots, and the optional 600s delivering thirty knots top speed to the semi-displacement hull form.

Project: Patrone 45

The best is about to get better as Patrone present the project for the 45, as designed by Tommaso Spadolini, the same designer who designed the really nice 100 which debuted in 2022. The Patrone 45 follows on the same footsteps of the 100 combining the sporting soul of the open with cabin comfort, in a unique traditional Ligurian Gozzo look. A mix created according to the excellent artisan quality that has defined Patrone for more than a century. Patrone new 45 is a fourteen-meter flagship, traditional in looks open cruiser designed for those who want to spend the whole day outdoors without sacrificing absolute comfort in the interiors. When designing the project of the 45, Patrone and Spadolini started from the concept of conviviality on board to re-interpret the classic charm of the Ligurian gozzo in modern key. The result is traditional cruiser  that is not affected by the short-lived trends of fashion and that can offer an absolute sense of space, inside and out, with a wide range of customization options. Three cockpit solutions and five interior layouts confirms Patrone tradition of “tailoring” each boat to the needs of its owner. At the same time, great attention was also paid to ensure it is seaworthy: the hull is an evolution form and is to be powered by twin Yanmar 440hp engines in a V-drive transmission.

New Model: Dale Classic 37

The vision to build a new Dale classic styled model started to become more than just an idea back in early April 2020 when discussions and sketches between Mike and designer Arthur Mursell resulted in drawings flying back and for in earnest. At first the Classic 37 was named as Classic 36, with the project becoming larger and a gap filler in space and comfort between the Classic 35 and Classic 45 models.  Enters the Dale Classic 37, which based on the hull shape of the 40, with the wider beam helping to give more accommodation to that of the 35, with a choice for a galley down one cabin layout, or galley up two cabins single head.  The Dale Classic 37 is also very versatile for power fit out, coming with started twin 230hp engines for a semi-displacement ride up to eighteen knots, and or optional engines up to 440hp.  Hull number one was fitted with the large engines option, putting a top speed just one knot shy of the declared magic thirty knots number.

New Model: Apreamare Gozzo 38 Cabin

Apreamare is pleased to announce the launch of the first unit of the new Gozzo 38 Cabin.

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.

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.

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.
