Sea Ray is celebrating its 45th anniversary in style with the introduction of an outboard version of its iconic staple, the Sundancer 370. The Sundancer line has been the main identifier of the brand since its inception, and indeed it has even come to define the brand. It literally started the Express Cruiser market that has been copied by nearly every builder in class, but none can match the distinctive traits that define a Sundancer. And now it’s been re-defined.
The 210S is the outboard version of Tahoe’s 700 model. She’s 6” (15.24 cm) longer than the 700 and is a new boat from the keel up. Her interior is designed to take advantage of the extra space the outboard affords.
CL Yachts is the luxury-performance division of noted yacht builder Cheoy Lee. At 88'11" (27 m), the CLB88 can bring owners and guests to far-reaching destinations while her 5'5" (1.65 m) draft still allows her entry to remote shallow anchorages and bays such as the Bahamas.
Aquila’s 36 Sport Power Catamaran offers the space and accommodations that only a cat can deliver on. Her wide 14’7” (4.45 m) beam allows for adding many features that don’t cramp on available space. With the ability to add a Hydro Glide Foil System™, as on our test boat, Aquila says that efficiency is improved by up to 30%.
Galeon Yachts is broadening its horizons with the new four-boat Grand Touring Outboard series. The first model is the 325 GTO. Powered by twin outboard engines, she’s the smallest Galeon ever built and the goal is to introduce a new customer to the company.
With the huge success of the 52 Fly, Absolute did some careful listening to the voice of the customer and determined that there was a desire for all the features the 52 presented, but in the footprint of a slightly smaller boat. Well, isn’t that what everyone wants? Of course, the design team couldn’t just brush the request off that easily and set to work at filling that goal. The result is the 50 Fly, and it’s already a resounding success. In fact, the first customer bought hull #1 after trading down from another brand’s 65-footer (19.81 m).
