Free Issue
At the end of one of the busiest months we've had, we assembled an exceptional magazine with an astonishing array of subjects. The biggest story was probably the release of the challenger details for the 2021 America's Cup in Auckland, New Zealand, with an incredible video all about the new AC 75 – yes, the new Cup racers will be foiling 75 foot mono hulls! Just add millions of dollars and two or three years of high-intensity training, and you might have a shot at lifting the Cup from the Kiwis.
But we have plenty of feet-on-ground stuff to keep you entertained, including half a dozen interesting videos, with a beauty from Brooke and Dennis on their mahi-mahi escapade, and a truly scary video from the Volvo ocean racers. And writing about extreme sports, the 2017 V8 Superboat Championships wrapped up this month, and we have full details of the final results, plus another swag of Russell Puckeridge’s awesome photographs of Australia's top superboats in action.
Aaron Concord files Part Two of his acclaimed mangrove jack treatise, with such comprehensive details about the best lures, vibes, hard bodies and soft plastics, you’ll want to keep this issue forever – and certainly take it with you on your iPad or smartphone when you next visit your favourite tackle store.
Boat wise, we have features on the Beneteau Antares 8 (a really nice 27 foot cruiser), the sweet Stejcraft 610 Monaco family cruiser, the latest update on Troy Munnery's impressive Crossfire Five8 plate aluminium catamaran, plus an envious look at the Haines Hunter 525 Prowler centre console.
And would you believe we've started a logbook following the design and construction of a brand-new Riviera 395 scheduled to be launched next year? We are following it from laying the keel through to cracking the champagne next May, 2018.
We reckon it's one of our best-ever issues, and we hope you think so too, as we've got a number of very exciting projects underway already for 2018, so check out the subscription offers and become part of the AB family.
