SAIL's Best Boats 2014: Fountaine Pajot Victoria 67

by SAIL Editors, Posted November 21, 2013
Over 65 feet you’re getting into big boat territory, and when you start talking about a catamaran with more than 31 feet of beam, as is the case with the Fountaine Pajot Victoria 67, there’s little doubt you’re dealing with a “flagship.”

Aegir, more eye candy from Goetz

by Charles Mason, Posted July 22, 2009
Most boatbuilders haven’t escaped the economic malaise that’s infiltrated almost every area of activity during the past 18 months. And that’s why it is so nice to see Goetz Custom Technologies LLC, one of the best of the high-end builders, digging out nicely from problems that quickly follow when there’s a light order book.

Like the Lagoon 52, the SIG60 is a VPLP-designed catamaran, but that’s where the similarity ends. Lightweight carbon-fiber construction and a powerful sailplan guarantee outstanding performance from this cruiser-racer.

Oyster 885

Time was when the Oyster 71 was the biggest of these bespoke yachts that one could aspire to. Now that the British company is building superyachts—making it the only boatbuilder whose range starts at 46 feet and peaks at 125 feet— the 71 is merely mid-range. The new 885 is the biggest boat Oyster could design to slip just under the 24-meter waterline load line rule. Any boat over that is subject

Nautor Swan 66 FD

by Charles J. Doane, Posted October 31, 2011
Back in 1998, when Finnish builder Nautor was acquired by Italian fashion magnate Leonardo Ferragamo, many Swan aficionados worried that the core values of this iconic breed of cruiser-racers would be lost in a blaze of Euro-finery. But the Italians have since done a superb job of injecting their own unique sense of style into the brand while also retaining Nautor’s strong
