The Beneteau Oceanis 30.1 challenges the long-time idea that bigger is better. This sailboat is so incredible it was dubbed Performance Cruiser of the Year, which just happens to be the most competitive category of awards given to boats. We had the chance to show off the 30.1 at the Newport International Boat Show, and to be honest, the title of "best performance cruiser" fits her perfectly. So what makes the Beneteau Oceanis 30.1 so special?
Congratulations to the Winners of Our Boating Lifestyle Contest
It's finally the time everyone's been waiting for. Today we announce our boating lifestyle photo-contest winner. We had so many amazing submissions, but two of them made us say, "they are living the life." The boating lifestyle isn't just about owning a boat, it's about so much more. It's about time with family, disconnecting from our crazy lives, and spending time in the simplicity of nature. The boating lifestyle is truly about enjoying the little things in life. We want to say, "thank you" to everyone who entered. We loved all of your photos and enjoyed reading about what the boating lifestyle means to you. Congratulations to our 2019 photo contest winners.
Every once in a while a boat comes along that blurs the lines between sport and luxury. We’ve seen it before with Hatteras Sportfishing Yachts and the Cabo 41. This time Cobia is bringing their A game to the table with a new 35-foot center console. The Cobia 350 CC debuted this year and instantly caught our eye. Cobia has always provided high-quality center and dual console boats, successfully packaging together hours of fun on the water in a powerful yet easy to handle, mid-sized package. The 350 CC brings all of this to the table... and then some.

Happy October! It's officially "spooky season" and in the spirit of all things creepy, weird, and surprising we are bringing you a list of the world's strangest boats.
We've all seen an interesting boat or two, maybe she had a funny name, eccentric hull color, or resembled a surprisingly still intact pirate ship. Whatever you may have seen, I guarantee you have never seen anything like these.
It's not often that a yacht successfully blends sheer speed with immaculate detail and design, while still beating its competitors in the price department. The all-new First Yacht 53 by Beneteau might just be the one to accomplish this... and then some.

Well, the CABO 41 is a one-of-a-kind sport fishing yacht. She mixes versatile sports equipment and capabilities, with a sleek, modern design.
