“The world is full of boats. Unfortunately, most of them look alike.”
So states the website of Revolver Boats, a three-year-old Italian company whose first-ever U.S. offering shows clear intention to stand apart from the crowd. The Revolver 42 is making her U.S. debut at the 2013 Palm Beach International Boat Show, where she is being pitched as a crossover between a cruising boat and a performance boat. Her citron-green hull and tinted black superstructure are an absolute anomaly on the docks, practically daring show-goers to take a peek at what’s inside.
A few years ago, Hodgdon Yachts branched out beyond building custom power- and sailing yachts, with the introduction of its Custom Tenders Line. The Maine-based shipyard has four new tender orders on its books, with design input coming from two well-known yacht designers.
