Toy Story…

“It’s easier to find a qualified buyer than an experienced captain these days,” my yacht broker pal Tom explained in frustration. I mentioned my captain friend John, who’d been marooned ashore with endless honey-do lists. “He’s got a bit of water under his keel, but he’s one of the best,” ...

Palm Beach’s GT50 is Off to the Races…

Palm Beach has made a name for itself building smooth-riding, efficiently designed, Downeast-style cruisers that can tackle a seaway.

How ImageSails Combines Artwork with Sails…

Daniel Gohstand got the idea in Guatemala. A documentary photographer, he’d been shooting images in what he calls a little town on the side of a volcano. To give back to the community, he strung up a 30-foot projection screen and put on a show. It was a windy night, ...

Luxury Tender Guide…

The adventure starts on the big boat. A yacht carries you to far-flung waypoints and sets the scene for making lifetime memories. Once you drop the hook outside that must-see port of call or anchor in teal waters off a deserted, white-sand beach, it’s time to explore the coast or ...
