SAIL Magazine Editor Peter Nielsen tracks down the new boats at the Annapolis show

Dufour 410
Dufour's brand new 410 is one of three new models introduced here by the French builder. 


 

Hank Hinckley Day Sailor
I was intrigued by this sweet little day sailer/weekender from Hank Hinckley. There was no one around on the morning of setup day to answer my questions but it sure is a pretty boat.


 

Dehler 38
It's been a while since we've seen a new Dehler on this side of the Atlantic. The new 38 looks like a real gem. 


 

Contest 42cs
Contest is a high-end Dutch yard that builds attractive cruising yachts. The 42cs is their smallest model, and also their newest. SAIL Best Boat nomination


 

Maverick 440
A cat from South Africa; a stretched version of the Maverick 400 seen here last year. 


 

Corsair Cruze 970
Corsair's replacement for the well-loved Corsair 31 has roomier accommodations and a larger cockpit. SAIL Best Boat nomination


 

Bavaria 41
Not the best angle to show the lines of the new Bavaria 41, but you get the idea. 


 

Beneteau Oceanis 38
The latest cruiser from Beneteau gets some TLC before the show opens. SAIL Best Boat nomination 


 

Atlantic 47
Check out the double wing mast rig on this Chris White design. It's called the Mastfoil and features two roller furling sails.


 

Catalina's 275
Check out Catalina's new 275. It's one of those boats hard to categorize; day sailer, weekender, round the cans racer, all round family fun boat. And it's a looker too. SAIL Best Boat nomination


 

Lagoon 52
The scale of the imposing Lagoon 52 is apparent here. Luxurious living on three levels, anyone? SAIL Best Boat nomination,  


 

Xp-44
Denmark's famous X-Yachts is represented here with the Xp-44, a fast, good-looking performance cruising boat. 


 

Hylas 63
Here's some sharp big-boat styling in the form of the German Frers-designed Hylas 63.

Alerion 41
There's no such thing as an ugly Alerion, and the new Alerion 41 is a real head-turner.

Beneteau's little First 25s

Looking for a family weekender? Beneteau's little First 25s might just be the boat for you.


 

Gunboat 60

Here is the new Gunboat 60, looking powerful even at rest. This Nigel Irens design is a real beauty.
