AB #274 . . is another great issue with something for everyone to enjoy. . . Highlights from this issue include
Leading off this exceptional, high-tech issue is an exceptional high-tech Mercury Verado powered catamaran, the Aquila 32. It has more innovative ideas for comfortable family boating and fun on the water than we’ve seen for years.
Then we have one feature strictly from left field for the video gamers – this time, the big kids! It’s a deep sea commercial fishing trawler video game that has taken Europe by storm.
Other features in October AB include the long-awaited Volvo Penta diesel engines and drives supplement – definitely one to file and keep – whilst Ruth's Boat Shed is all about buying proper marine quality batteries.
However, what makes AB October so different starts midway with the revised AB-TV’s opening feature staring Alex Thomson showing us through his scary-amazing Imoca foiler ‘Hugo Boss’.
Then we come to a quick roundup of video news on the international scene, with several brilliant videos on the latest Imoca launchings, including Charlie Dalin’s Apiva, the amazing foiler Charal and action stuff on Thomson’s Hugo Boss
This month’s Episode (#9) of the World Sailing Show not only covers the final round of the TP52’s but also has a good wrap-up of the SailGP, plus a rundown on the dinghy classes for next year’s Olympics, and some of the very latest footage on the America’s Cup Challengers.
We also have the launch details of the (first) official Kiwi America's Cup defender, Te Ahei, plus more on the Italian and American challengers, and a really interesting British video that leaves no-one in any doubt about the determination of the Brits to win the America’s Cup wit the newly launched ‘Britannia’. One thing for sure, this next America’s Cup Challenge in Auckland, 2021 is going to be one helluva close fight between competing countries at speeds that are really hard to comprehend.
Plus we have details of Francis Joyen’s latest adventure as he steers his huge IDEC trimaran towards another series of record breaking runs around the planet – and at the other end of the scale, all the details about a 6.5m Trans-Atlantic baby foiler that will really make you wonder where yachting is heading . .
But this is what we do – bring you the best of the action from around the world so you can adapt what you need on the local front, in powerboats or sailboats, and regardless of whether they work best in – or out - of the water!
