2013 BOTY Nominees
September 10, 2012XP38 GalleryTHE “P” in XP, the latest offering from X-Yachts, the builder of a fleet of outstanding racer/cruisers based in Denmark, is for “performance,” and this purposeful 38-footer should deliver it in spades. Multiple keel and rig configurations are available, including, for the serious racer, an optional deep fin keel and carbon rig. The XP 38 is part of Cruising World's 2013 New Boat Showcase.
September 7, 2012Catana 47Performance was the aim in building this new cat from the high-tech French builder, and with a radical “carbon infusion” construction process, that goal was realized. With an infused sandwich of foam, aramid fibers, carbon fiber, and other materials, Catana’s latest 47 is over 3,000 pounds lighter than before. The Catana 47 is part of Cruising World's 2013 New Boat Showcase.
September 13, 2012Maverick 400Yet another cool cat with a South African pedigree is the Maverick 400, appropriately nicknamed the “Space Craft.” Indeed, spacious accoutrements above deck and below are signature elements in this rangy 40-footer. The enormous owners stateroom, which runs the length of the starboard hull, is especially noteworthy. The Maverick 400 is a part of Cruising World's 2013 New Boat Showcase.
August 28, 2012Beneteau Sense 55Created by the prolific French naval architecture firm Berret Racoupeau, with an open, inviting interior rendered by Nauta Design, the flagship of Beneteau’s Sense fleet is this scintillating 55-footer, which looks and feels like a much larger yacht. Like its sister ships, the boat’s liveaboard potential makes a lot of, well, sense. The Beneteau Sense 55 is part of Cruising World's 2013 New Boat Showcase. Read a review of the Sense 55 here.
