Cap Camarat 75CC

If you are looking for an open-decked boat to participate in water sports, the Cap Camarat should certainly be on your shortlist. This boat can be driven hard and frenetically and it shrugs it off like a sports boat. Cap Camarat 75cc Simon Everett introduces us to this all-new Cap Camarat 7.5m centre console from […]

Four Winns HD 240

The HD 240 is a broadly talented boat that does not fit in the mould of the average bowrider. It has been carefully thought out with no space being wasted. In keeping with its function, it has the ability to seat the largest of families easily. Four Winns HD 240 The American-built Four Winns HD […]

Quicksilver Activ 755 Open

The space, convertibility, family-friendly layout and level of performance are of a standard that will appeal to many middle-of-the-road boating families. It looks good, goes well and can accommodate six without overcrowding. I didn’t find any failings in the handling department; in fact, I was pleasantly surprised at the ride comfort. I was impressed at […]

Chaparral H2O

The Chaparral H2O is great fun to drive, quick off the mark, forgiving if you overcook it and reassuringly well made. Given what the alternatives are in its 30k price region, this boat is not a hard choice to make. Looking behind the scenes reveals a high standard of construction. Chaparral H2O This 19ft bowrider […]

AMT 190 BR

The 190 BR is a spacious, well-equipped and user-friendly bowrider with some pleasantly distinctive detailing. It’s good to look at, easy to own, impressively affordable and far more versatile than most American-style bowriders. This is a resoundingly easy boat to drive. It’s not fast or especially sharp, it won’t widen your eyes or elicit screams […]


RYA Reminds Boaters to Get Alarmed

Arctic Greenland Adventure

Operating in such a remote environment as Scoresby Sound presents some fairly unique challenges and rewards. The attractions of the region lie in the fantastic scenic beauty provided by the combination of fjords, mountains and ice [and] the wildlife. Arctic Greenland Adventure In an exclusive for PBR magazine, Peter Talbot discusses his three-week SIB adventure […]

South Stack & Back

  Trearddur has a special feel about it, with lots of little rocky islands, many of which conceal moorings for all manner of small boats. The seas around Anglesey are littered with shipwrecks, and this area is no exception. Rounding North Stack is a real treat. The cliffs here in Gogarth Bay provide a magical […]

Northern Lights

The memories will live forever, and I would gladly repeat it anytime. We had a few situations where the waves were breaking into the boat and it filled up with a lot of water. The more I replayed the situation in my head, the more it became clear to me that my good friend Dr […]

Island Hopping with the Williams Sportjet 520

With 200 horses obediently restraining themselves, we burble out of Salterns for a 6-knot potter towards our start line … … even without any direct control over trim, the 520 runs unerringly flat and fast, lifting high on the straight, carving hard in the turn … … it is plain that this boat is optimised […]

Tremadog Bay

A posh high tea on the terrace is an absolute bargain, and the views are sublime. Older readers may just remember that baffling 1960s thriller/sci-fi series The Prisoner, which was set at Portmeirion. The wildlife here is abundant, and you will often encounter schools of dolphins between the islands and Abersoch. Abersoch is a tiny […]

West Coast Adventure

In the 12 miles we’d only seen four other walkers. Planning ahead of trips allows you to get the most out of your time away and can be part of the enjoyment. Quite simply, nothing beats good planning. I’ve found the boat and engine combination an excellent compromise of cost, size, portability and capability when […]
