Motor Boat & Yachting March 2017 is out now!

  • Tue, 06 Feb 2018 18:25

In the March 2017 issue of the magazine we review the Azimut S7 and Bénéteau GT50 Sportfly, plus the winners of 2018 Motor Boat Awards are revealed

The March 2017 issue of Motor Boat & Yachting is out tomorrow and it includes reviews of the Azimut S7, Pardo 43 and Bénéteau GT50 Sportfly plus we reveal the winners of the 2018 Motor Boat Awards.

Alan Harper is dispatched to Cannes where he gets behind the wheel of the first ever motorboat built by the team behind Grand Soleil yachts, the Pardo 43.

Jack Haines is in Italy to test Azimut’s stunning S7. With three IPS engines totalling 2,400hp and carbon fibre construction the S7 proves to be as good to drive as it is to look at.

We also review the new flagship of Gran Turismo 50 range from Bénéteau. The Nuvolari Lenard designed 50 comes as a coupe or a sportsbridge so we take them both for a spin to see which is best.

We also have a quick spin of the quirky Hawksley Classic 18, a handmade retro sportsboat built in the UK.

In the New Tech section we take a closer look at Lifecord, the revolutionary alarmed kill cord that we helped develop plus two new Simrad chartplotters and the Neander diesel outboard.

In Tried & Tested we get to grips with a hands-free intercom, Sealblades and A-Glaze’s Easy Finish while in Our Boats we say hello to a Bavaria E40 owner and our Marex 320 owner has a nervous berthing episode.

Used Boat is pretty special this month as we look in detail at the fearsome Nelson 80. It’s the biggest Nelson ever built and is on the market for under €700,000. In Find Me A, we task Nick Burnham with unearthing a bargain sportscruiser.


See what won at the 2018 Motor Boat Awards

In this issue we also reveal the stars of the 2018 Motor Boat Awards. There are nine boat categories, the Service Award sponsored by Lombard and the Judges’ Special Award. You can read about why the judges chose the boat they did on p54.

Finally, in the cruising section Peter Cumberlidge has an intriguing piece on exploring the content using road transport, our Marlow owners get to the end of their epic trip around the British Isles and one reader brings a neglected Pearl 43 back to life.

Enjoy the issue!
