Currently in Key West, Fla., covering the Super Boat International Offshore World Championships, we still managed to put the final touches on our September/October Speed On The Water digital magazine (download it here or click the image above) with the goal of giving you something to read every day this week other than offshore racing news stories on speedonthewater.com. Here’s some of what you’ll find in the new issue:
• Killer Six Pack—In our inaugural Sport Catamaran/Mercury Racing Verado 400R Outboard roundup, three test teams put six of today’s hottest sport cats through their paces and deliver the results.
• Project: The Immaculate Conversion Of A Skater 30 Prototype—While it took more than two years to complete, repowering a one-of-a-kind, stern-drive-engine-powered 30-footer with twin Mercury Racing Verado 400R outboards—as well as reconfiguring and repainting the entire boat—proved worthwhile for the catamaran’s Northern California-based owner.
• Donzi 41 GT Profile: Instant Classic—The first new Donzi model in more than 10 years is both classic and contemporary, and provides a compelling design platform for future offerings.
• Out Of This World At The Lake Powell Challenge—Between raising more than $600,000 for a great cause and showcasing one of the world’s coolest waterways, this remarkable event is becoming the happening of the performance-boating season.
Of course, there’s a whole lot more to discover in the 84-page September/October 2018 issue. To start reading it right now at no charge, click the download link and please feel free to share any feedback with us below, via email or on social media.
