Brief Summary

Visitors to south Florida boat shows are often greeted by large, beautiful boats that are not in the mainstream. These are invariably boats built by entrepreneurs and boat lovers who have a small facility with a few workers, or people who have subcontracted the work out to existing boat yards. Quite often, their innovative ideas are picked up by the mainstream, so they are always worth a look-see. Gulfstream Yachts is such a concern, and at this year’s Miami Boat Show, its new 52 caught our eye. We found some good ideas, and this 52 is part of a growing trend of large center consoles.
