Offshore capable Pilot House Cruiser complete with powerful Ford Lehman 80 HP engine and great accommodations. The boat was purchased by its current owner in 2014 and has been up and down the west coast from Mexico to where she lives now in Bellingham, WA. In 2014 the boat was refitted with all new standing rigging, a rebuilt engine and a completely stripped and re painted bottom job. Boat is very dry inside. It was a liveaboard for several years so no leaks or moisture issues whatsoever. Needs outside wood work. Pilothouse offers great views, interior steering for the PNW and storm conditions. Seagoing aft cockpit helm area with enormous foredeck. Beautiful teak interior with large windows and light, spacious layout. Entry to cabin is via an off-centered companion way leading to beautiful, slightly circular stairway. The expansive galley is forward of the salon offering great meal prep space, stove, huge refrigerator/freezer. The main salon features U-shaped dining to port and open space to starboard for the helm and potentially other seating, if so desired. Sleeping accommodations are forward, with a pullman berth to Starboard and a built-in vanity table/drawer. Moving aft, across from a large pantry is the head, with separate shower/wet area. Mid ship oposit the galley is a chart table/work bench area. The cockpit well is aft and designed for offshore cruising. Plenty of deck space for additional seating while at anchor. If you are looking for a great, long distance cruiser or liveaboard, this is a fantastic choice.

Everything about this boat exhibits pride of ownership. From the topside to the hull, to the cabin and head, every piece of equipment, furniture, and electronics have been nicely maintained. The engine is reported by the owner to be in good working order and the hull is frequently cleaned. Stock #343004 Vessel has been restored and she's gorgeous, with an artisan's attention to every last detail! This is an amazing sailboat that was rebuilt 12 years ago from stem to stern, and expertly maintained since then. A Yanmar 75 HP diesel engine was installed and has approximately 271 hours of operation. The current owner is a licensed sea Capitan and purchased the boat soon after its rebuild was completed. He has been chartering the boat for Bay Cruises and keeps it looking just like it did when he purchased it. The photos were taken on July 6, 2023. Just take a look at every aspect of the boat. The hull is polished, the top deck is clean, and the teak woodwork is maintained with several applications of varnish. Inside, the main cabin, the v-berth, and the head all look great. You would never know this boat was built in 1975 unless you are told. This is a special boat for a discriminating buyer. If you are such a buyer and in the market for a beautiful sailboat, this is one you won't want to miss.

Model George Sutton Dished Steel Cutter

43 foot LOD Dished steel, George Sutton designed Custom made by a professional shipyard. This vessel has never been launched and is awaiting completion. Interior stringers are predrilled for easy bolting of interior. Wear points, Chainplates, Stanchion bases, Hatch hinges, and mooring cleats are all welded stainless steel to prevent rust staining by lines etc. wearing through the paint. I purchased the vessel from the welder. vessel was white blasted prior to having 5 + coats of epoxy sprayed. I rolled on over 20 gallons of additional epoxy coats. In addition to Spars, sails, rigging and interior woodwork, the Vessel needs engine (Designed for 85=100 HP diesel), needs prop and prop shaft. I have a transmission that probably needs rebuilt. Also it has 10,000 pounds of lead ballast in keel, 200 gallons of fuel tankage also built into the keel. Engine bed mounts welded in over the bilge. Bronze steering quadrant. Stainless Steel destroyer wheel.This hull is very well built and would make an ideal bluewater cruiser or circumnavigator. Priced at under half of the cost of a new hull build out, this boat is a great project.

The Columbia 43 Sailboat Specs & Key Performance Indicators

The Columbia 43 was designed by William Tripp Jr and built in the USA by Columbia Sailing Yachts. Her gentle sheer and flush deck make for a very attractive sailboat. From a purely aesthetic point of view, to me anyway - sailboat perfection.

Summary Analysis of the Design Ratios for the Columbia 43

eBook: How to Avoid Buying the Wrong Sailboat

1. A Sail Area/Displacement Ratio of 18,2 suggests that the Columbia 43 will, in the right conditions, approach her maximum hull speed readily and satisfy the sailing performance expectations of most cruising sailors.

2. A Ballast/Displacement Ratio of 50.2 means that the Columbia 43 will stand up well to her canvas in a blow, helping her to power through the waves.

3. A Displacement/Length Ratio of 257, tells us the Columbia 43 is a moderate displacement cruiser, which means she'll carry all your cruising gear without it having a dramatic effect on her performance. Most of today's sailboats intended for offshore cruising fall into this displacement category.

4. Ted Brewer's Comfort Ratio of 29.1 suggests that crew comfort of a Columbia 43 in a seaway is similar to what you would associate with the motion of a moderate bluewater cruising boat - a predictable and acceptable motion for most seasoned sailors.

5. The Capsize Screening Formula (CSF) of 1.9 tells us that a Columbia 43 would be a safer choice of sailboat for an ocean passage than one with a CSF of more than 2.0. 

Any Questions?

What other versions of the Columbia 43 were built?

There were two main versions of the Columbia 43: the standard model and the centreboard model (Columbia 43 CB). The centreboard model had a retractable keel that reduced the draft from 6.5 feet to 4.5 feet, making it more suitable for shallow waters. There was also a MkIII version of the Columbia 43 that had a slightly longer hull, a taller mast and a lead-ballasted keel, but only a few of these were made.

What is the accommodation like in the Columbia 43?

The Columbia 43 has a spacious and comfortable interior that can sleep up to six people. The layout consists of a V-berth forward, followed by a head with a shower to port and a hanging locker to starboard, aft of which there are two further single berths. The main saloon has a galley with a stove, oven, sink and refrigerator to port and a U-shaped dinette to starboard that converts to a double berth.

What keel options are available for the Columbia 43?

The Columbia 43 has two keel options: a fixed fin keel or a centreboard keel. The fixed fin keel is made of iron and has a draft of 6.5 feet. It provides good stability and performance in deep water, but limits the access to shallow anchorages or marinas. The centreboard keel is made of fibreglass and has a draft of 4.5 feet when retracted and 8.5 feet when extended. It allows more versatility in sailing in different water depths, but adds some complexity and maintenance to the boat.

What is the Columbia 43 like to sail?

The Columbia 43 is a fast and agile boat that can handle well in various wind and sea conditions. It has a moderate-displacement hull that can plane in strong winds, but also has enough ballast to keep it stable and balanced in moderate winds. It has a responsive helm and good manoeuvrability, making it fun to sail both upwind and downwind. It can also perform well in races, especially in long-distance offshore events.

What is the average cost of a secondhand Columbia 43?

The average cost of a secondhand Columbia 43 depends on several factors, such as the year of manufacture, the condition of the boat, the equipment and upgrades installed, and the location of the boat. Based on some recent listings on YachtWorld, the price range for a used Columbia 43 can vary from $25,000 to $65,000 USD.

Is this boatbuilder still in business?

No, this boatbuilder is no longer in business. Columbia Yachts was founded in 1958 by Richard Valdes as Glas Laminates, producing fibreglass products such as camper shells and canoes. It later changed its name to Glass Marine Industries and then to Columbia Sailing Yachts in 1965. It became one of the largest sailboat manufacturers in the US in the late 1960s and early 1970s, producing models ranging from 20 to 57 feet. However, it faced financial and managerial problems in the mid-1970s and was sold to the Whittaker Marine Group, which also owned Coronado Yachts. The production of Columbia sailboats ceased in 1978, and the company was dissolved in 1980.

What other sailboats have been created by this designer?

This designer, William H. Tripp Jr., was a prolific and influential naval architect who created many sailboats for various boatbuilders, such as Hinckley, Pearson, Nautor's Swan, Baltic Yachts, and of course, Columbia Yachts. Some of his most famous designs include the Bermuda 40, the Columbia 50, the Swan 36, the Baltic 51, and the Tripp 47.

The above answers were drafted by sailboat-cruising.com using GPT-4 (OpenAI’s large-scale language-generation model) as a research assistant to develop source material; to the best of our knowledge,  we believe them to be accurate.

Bob Perry designed this Saga for a specific purpose—fast, efficient cruising. Its beauty is in the sum of its parts: there's plenty of function, and form follows fairly enough.

43' sailboat

The term “performance cruiser” has become so overused by production builders as to have lost much of its meaning. We think the definition includes (but is not limited to) boats that can be sailed to their potential by two people, or even a singlehander. Cockpits should be large enough for comfortable lounging in warm climes, or under the moon. Each space belowdecks should be large enough for its intended use. And pricing should correspond to value.

The Robert Perry-designed Saga 43 seems to fit most of those definitions.

Company History Saga Yachts, Inc., of Ontario, Canada, was formed in 1995 by Allan Poole and three business partners. The firm commissioned Robert H. Perry to design the first Saga yacht, the 43-footer of which we speak, which began rolling off the production line in 1996. The company’s plan was to build performance cruisers suitable for bluewater sailing that are of higher quality than mainstream production builders.

Saga 43

A Scot, with an engineering degree from Strathclyde University in Glascow, Poole built race-winning performance sailing yachts for 10 years prior to emigrating to Canada. He held positions as general manager for CS Yachts, director of marketing for Tartan Yachts, and was president of Hinterholler Yachts. Immediately prior to forming Saga, he worked for C&C Yachts before it ceased operations.

The partnership at Saga, however, was not a happy one, and was terminated in 1998. Poole subsequently purchased the molds, and reorganized the company as Saga Marine. It now employs 35 people in a 20,000-square foot facility, and produces 12 to 15 boats annually. In addition to the 43-footer, the company manufacturers a Perry designed 35-footer. Perry is currently designing a 47-footer that the company plans to debut in 2002.

Dealers are located in Annapolis, Connecticut, Seattle, and California.

The Design Seattle architect Perry’s designs occupy a wide swath of the sailboat horizon. Three decades after its introduction, his Valiant 40 is still considered a well-mannered bluewater cruiser. Other designs include the Nordic 40 and the Esprit 37.

From the outset, the Saga 43 was “designed to be a legitimate fast cruiser that would combine elements from racing trends with a long waterline that increases speed and interior volume,” says Perry. “Most cruisers are designed inside out, but not here. We wanted to appeal to an owner who knows performance. Allan and I started with a big cockpit that would be comfortable and ease the task of managing the boat. We wanted a better balance between spaces on deck and below.”

The boat has a fine entry, with beam carried well forward. “She’s not narrow, says Perry, “though she’s six inches narrower than the Valiant 40. She’s just not fat. I think the marketplace is inundated with fat boats.”

There’s not much flare in the hull, but she provides a dry ride, as we learned on our test sail. There’s a bit of hollow at her bow, and she has a relatively low, 19″ high coachroof. Of her profile, Perry says, “I like a strong spring to the sheer.”

Her length-to-beam ratio is 3.94. Perry considers a narrow hull one with a ratio over 4.0, and anything under 3.2 fat.

“She’s complex forward but a normal design aft,” Perry says. At the opposite end of her fine entry, she presents a stout, stable section at the stern. “We wanted good tracking,” says Perry. “The hull form and rig combine to provide a neutral helm under most conditions.

“Most cruisers reef as a survival move, while racers reef to improve performance. You don’t have to wait until this boat is out of control to reef—she lets you know.”

Three keels are available, including a recently introduced shoal-draft version with a bulb and longer chord length to improve lift. The partially balanced spade rudder was placed as far aft as possible, allowing easier steering under a spinnaker in heavy seas.

Both of the oft-used ratios that measure performance potential indicate that she is a goer. The SA/D is 19.09 with a self-tacking jib, which places her on the high end of the “performance cruiser” scale, and a D/L of 152—lower than the typical production cruiser. Her polar plots indicate she’ll be fastest sailing between 120 and 135 degrees, when speed will reach 10 knots in 20 knots of wind. On paper she should sail to weather in the same wind at 7-plus knots.

Deck Layout Perhaps the most noteworthy characteristic of the rig and deck layout is that they were conceived with an eye to simplified shorthanded sailing at speed in the ocean. She carries a masthead rig with double headstays, like many round-the- world racers. Both headsails are flown from Harken furlers. The jib headstay is tacked at the stem. The stay for overlapping headsails is 2.6 feet forward at the end of the stainless steel bowsprit.

The inner jib is self-tacking, secured to a Harken traveler on the cabintop forward. The idea is that this jib will do for windward work, while off the wind the high-clewed outer jib will be unrolled and the inner jib furled. This set-up is somewhat ostentatiously called a Variable Geometry Rig™. The only real criticism we have of the system is that the short distance between stays requires manhandling the outer jib through the slot in a tack or a jibe (they do happen) and will produce excessive wear on the sail and the foredeck crew in any amount of air. It will be less of a problem for offshore sailors, who sometimes don’t change course for days.

The keel-stepped Offshore mast is supported by 1×19 wire. Shrouds are continuous. There are two sets of spreaders, swept slightly aft. The solid Forespar vang carries a 16:1 block and tackle.

What the casual observer would consider minor touches attest to her intended use: Decks are 19″ wide and chainplates are at the base of the cabin, so movement is unimpeded. Lifelines are 30″ tall—our preference for blue-water boats and 4-6″ higher than those of many competitors. On the port side of the mast is a compartment, flush to the deck, for storage of halyard tails and winch handles. Safety rails at the mast are standard, as are padeyes for jacklines. Also standard on newer boats is a spare main halyard and a storm trysail track on the mast.

The bowsprit has double rollers, and the anchor locker is divided into two compartments large enough for storage of 300 feet of rode.

Spaces belowdecks are well-lit and well-ventilated. Two Lewmar Ocean Series hatches are on the bow, three more are on the coachroof, and eight stainless-steel framed ports and four fixed portlights add illumination. There are four Dorade boxes with stainless steel cowls.

Saga 43

The builder succeeded in producing a cockpit with seats long enough for lounging. This cockpit is 79″ on the centerline forward of the wheel, and the footwell is 42″ wide. Seats are 7’6″ long, and 19″ wide, so a crew of eight can sit comfortably. The nonskid is “leather grained”— not the typical diamond pattern. It seems to provide good grip.

Primary winches on our test boat, hull #16, were Harken 56 self-tailers. Hoisting the mainsail, which is outfitted with a Harken Batt-Car system, is a matter of pressing a button that energizes the electric Harken 40 self-tailer on the cabintop. The mainsheet is housed on a traveler forward of the companionway, and, like the sheet for the self-tacking jib, is led to a winch at the companionway. Halyard tails and reefing lines can be tucked out of sight in cubbies in the coaming.

The wheel is a 40″ Edson stainless steel destroyer type that allowed two-finger steering during our test sail. A molded foot brace in the cockpit sole provided good support when steering while heeled 15-20°.

In addition to room for crew in the cockpit, there’s also a cavernous locker to starboard. The space is 51” deep and allows for storage of an inflatable dinghy and oars below spare sails, cleaning supplies, and fenders. A separate liferaft compartment is aft to starboard, as is a locker designed to house a 6-gallon gasoline tank for an outboard motor. Two 5-lb propane bottles live in a locker in the port corner.

Belowdecks The first impression upon stepping below is of spaciousness created by 6’5″ headroom, ample clearance amidships between settees, and light reflecting off hand-rubbed cherry and a white liner. The cabin sole is 1″ thick, with teak and holly veneer. The saloon measures 14′ on the centerline.

The common denominators of the three available interior layouts are galley and nav station to starboard, head and dining area to port.

The C-shaped galley is large enough for a chef and helper. The Corian countertop is 39″ wide and 21″ deep, with refrigerator and freezer located at the aft end below a cabinet designed to house a microwave. Standard equipment is a gimbaled three-burner Force 10 stove with oven. The owner told us that storage cabinets surrounding the space were adequate for a crew of three on a 19-day passage from Hawaii to San Francisco. The space is well ventilated by two opening ports.

The navigator sits on the settee and faces aft at a table measuring 36″ wide and 24″ deep—large enough to spread out a big section of chart.

The wiring behind the electric panel is excellent; removing two wing nuts allows the panel to swing down, providing instant access to wiring that is color coded, nicely bundled, and protected by Plexiglas boxes.

Though it sits in the center of the area, the 48″ long dining table is narrow enough with leaves down that it does not interfere with traffic forward, or access to settees. With leaves up, it is 54″ wide, adequate for seating four. Settees are 78″ long, and designed to convert to sea-berths.

Our test boat was equipped with a single head compartment, which was large enough to allow movement without banging into the bulkheads. Headroom is 6′ 2″. The space is surrounded by a seamless, molded pan nearly devoid of wood trim or grates that become greenhouses for mildew. A 16″ wide vanity and sink, mirror, storage cabinets, and toothbrush/cup holder are molded in the pan. Standing room in the shower is 26″ square, with an additional 13″ on a seat. The space is enclosed by a curved Plexiglas door that protects the main compartment from splashing water.

Saga 43

The boat was introduced with fore and aft staterooms and a second head in the bow. Beginning with hull #16, the forward head was eliminated. The most recent option is a queen-sized berth on an island on the centerline in the bow (not a good sea-berth, and not even good for sleeping in a rough harbor), with an optional head or closet.

Accommodations in the forward stateroom on our test boat included a queen-sized Pullman berth to port—far preferable for offshore sailing. There’s generous storage space in six pull-out drawers, a compartment outboard under the berth, and three cabinets on the hull, one with a 24″ wide hanging locker.

In the single-head configuration, the space forward of the stateroom is a 4’4″ x 5′ compartment that could be used as a workbench area (!) or extra storage area.

The berth in the aft stateroom is 80″ long and 72″ wide, and covered with 4″ thick cushions. Also in the cabin are a hanging locker and four large drawers—enough space for four sets of foulies and a moderate wardrobe. Spaces below the berth are occupied by batteries.

Aluminum tanks store diesel amidships on the centerline, and water port and starboard under the settees, and under the Pullman berth.

Construction Saga’s construction techniques reflect standard methods employed by the better builders in the industry. Hulls are sprayed with two layers of ISO-NPG gelcoat. The laminate is hand-laid and squeegeed to eliminate excess resin in the lamination. Two layers of vinylester resin are in the skin coat; polyester resins are in other layers.

The hull is cored with 3/4″ Baltek AL600 balsa sandwiched by four layers of chop and 2408 biaxial stitch mat on the exterior, and two layers on the interior. The 1-3/4″ thick bottom is solid fiberglass; additional reinforcing is on the centerline, at the keel, rudder, and mast step. The layup schedule for the deck is essentially the same, with core removed andsolid fiberglass reinforcements added in areas where hardware will be installed. Deck hardware is installed with aluminum backing plates.

Support for the hull is produced by an 18″ deep matrix frame constructed of 6 layers of 2408 mat, all of which are bonded to the hull, as are bulkheads and cabinetry. (These last are also bonded to the deck “where appropriate.”)

The hull-deck joint is a flange bonded with 3M 5200 and fasteners located on 4″ centers. Similarly, the aluminum toerail is bonded with 3M 5200 and through-bolted with aluminum washers and nuts.

The keel is cast lead, secured to the hull with two rows of 1″ keel bolts. The rudder stock is 2″ diameter stainless steel.

The mast and chainplates are grounded with 7AG copper wire for lightening protection. Seacocks are Marelon ball valves, and hoses are fitted with double clamps.

Performance We sailed hull #16 on San Francisco bay with Dwight Odom, a recent competitor in the Singlehanded Transpac, a 2,120-mile voyage from San Francisco to Hawaii. Though fit, Odom is in his 60s. This certainly speaks to the ease with which this 43- footer can be sailed.

Odom recorded boatspeeds of 14 knots sailing downwind in 35-40 knots of wind, flying a headsail and reefed main. We didn’t experience those conditions on our test sail.

She was not lightened for the test sail. We pulled away from the slip carrying a stainless steel wind vane on the stern, 300 feet of chain in the bow, provisions, and clothing.

Flying a full mainsail and 110% jib, and sailing as high on the breeze as possible without stalling the jib, speed reached 5.5 knots in 12 knots of true wind. When the wind freshened to 14-16 knots, our speed over the ground increased to 6.6 knots while sailing into a flooding tide under the Golden Gate Bridge. She was heeled 15-20 degrees, the helm was light, and she was in a comfortable groove.

Easing sheets and sailing between a close reach and a beam reach in 12 knots of true wind, the GPS recorded 8 knots, a half-knot faster than her polars indicate. As the breeze lightened we footed off to a broad reach and speed fluctuated between 7.9-8.2 knots. (This was now with a bit of current behind us.)

She also motors comfortably at 7-8 knots, though one owner claims to have pegged the speedo at 9 knots. Her standard engine is a 56- hp Yanmar fitted with a three bladed prop. A feathering prop will be important for the performance sailor.

One owner who kept close records of fuel consumption on a passage from the British Virgin Islands to the East Coast traveled at 8.2 knots at 3100 rpm, and 9 knots at 3600 rpm, with fuel consumption of about one gallon per hour.

Conclusions This boat was designed for serious sailors interested in maximizing performance and cruising in comfort. She’s faster than most production boats her size. The cockpit is large, and spaces below reflect Bob Perry’s ability to design comfortable accommodations.

The company’s warranty is fairly typical of the industry. It covers any defective workmanship and/or materials for a period of a year. Exceptions to this are a 5-year limited warranty on the hull structure, and 10-year limited warranty on gelcoat blistering and osmosis. The warranty is transferable to a second owner.

The boat was introduced with a $226,000 price tag, and owners have been rewarded with increases in resale value. Two used boats in the northeast recently sold for $299,000 and $295,000.

Prices of new boats have increased to $308,000 FOB the factory, reflecting upgrades and modifications to the interiors. Included in the upgrades are an electric windlass, six golf cart batteries, an inverter, and self-aligning rudder bearings. The nav station now houses a panel designed for a laptop.

Though somewhat more expensive than similar-sized boats produced by the major manufacturers, second-hand prices indicate that she’s a good investment. We think she’s a good sailing boat, too.

Cruising World Logo

Sceptre 43 Atlantic

  • By Quentin Warren
  • Updated: August 5, 2002

43' sailboat

scep43at.gif

In what may be one of this industry’s more agreeable cases of déjà vu, the Newport (RI) boat show last September unveiled a nicely turned out rendition of a Pacific Northwest cruiser already well regarded, this time in the guise of the Sceptre 43 Atlantic. She is a rework of designer Hein Driehuyzen’s popular Sceptre 41, with two feet added to the stern to increase the effective waterline length, elongate the profile and provide space for a convenient sugar scoop transom. Preserved are the earlier boat’s joyful sailing qualities, strong construction pedigree and inside steering capability.

The 41 was a worthy vessel in her own right (see Cruising World June ’86, March ’92). The notion that you can incorporate a separate steering station below and avoid stacking the profile with a raised pilothouse or invoking the motorsailer moniker is fetching, especially in a boat designed for off-season or upper-latitude cruising. The 43, even sleeker with her added length, offers the same advantage. The beauty these days is that given the versatility and dependability of modern autopilot systems, you can opt for an electronic station in the saloon in lieu of another wheel, which allows the main cabin to remain in essence an unadulterated living space when it’s not being used as a command post.

Currently Sceptre Yachts is in the very able hands of Heather Rouse and her husband Jeff, an Australian-born shipwright whose involvement with the construction of these boats dates back to hull #14 of the original 41. The hull is solid glass, the deck cored with Baltek balsa. The keel is a prolonged fin, the rudder skeg-hung with three bearings — at the deck, just above the waterline and at the shoe. Primary steering in the aft cockpit is by way of Edson chain, cable and quadrant. The entry is fine, and hull sections are fairly deep to provide for good payload-carrying ability and a bilge that’s deep enough to accept milk crates. The installation of systems is first-class, stressing accessibility, redundancy and equipment right off the top shelf.

The rig is a custom-built two-spreader keel-stepped affair with cutter capability, fore and aft lowers and a set of “fixed” running backs. The chain plates are secured mechanically to four-inch aluminum pipe that runs fore and aft on each side of the hull, carried by massive fiberglass knees.

Our experience aboard the 43 Atlantic topped off a sparkling day on Long Island Sound last fall. True to form, the vessel is solid as a rock and quite beautifully put together abovedeck and below. In a steady 12 knots of true wind she jogged along to weather at 6 to 7 knots and remained remarkably nimble at the helm for a boat so designed to tackle serious bluewater cruising. On a broad reach she slid home beneath an asymmetrical kite flown off a conventional spinnaker pole that stores vertically on the mast when not in use. The 43 is balanced, powerful and responsive.

With her enhanced teak-finished interior, she’s also elegant and inviting. Here’s a boat with a million little details that make sense and a long-distance track record that’s been proven many times over. Pricing for the upscale Atlantic series is in the $330,000-$350,000 range. Contact Heather Rouse at Sceptre (1993) Ltd, 23-12491, No. 2 Road, Richmond, BC V7E 2C3, Canada; phone (604) 241-9331.

A builder of top-notch custom boats since 2009, Release Boatworks has been seeing good success with its 34-, 43- and 46-foot walkaround and express models. Its engineers utilize precision CAD programming and three-dimensional solid modeling software, and the company has also invested in a new 5-axis CNC router to create mold plugs. These processes allow the company to take advantage of production manufacturing efficiencies—including reduced build times—while building a stronger, tougher boat relative to cold-molded construction and yet remaining a custom-boat-building company.

Integrating advanced ­composite construction techniques such as blending fabrics and various core-material densities and thicknesses for different parts of the boat—along with infusion and vacuum-bagging those parts—can effectively reduce build time and increase manufacturing accuracy and overall strength, as well as build shape into the boat much easier than shaping wood.

Construction and Performance

Top-down aerial view of a sport-fishing boat cruising across the water, leaving cresting waves in its wake.

Partnering with an industry leader in advanced composites, Composites Consulting Group, a subsidiary of DIAB Group, Release utilizes the specifications from CCG to set the standards on all build materials while also training Release boatbuilders on how to integrate them into the manufacturing process. The folks at Release have joined Merritt’s Boat & Engine Works in a very exclusive club of those who are committed to this type of construction in sport-fishing boats.

I had the pleasure of testing its new 43-foot Gameboat flybridge recently in Vero Beach, Florida. Utilizing its proven hull, Release added a house and flybridge—a first for the builder for this model—for its owner. Honoring the old-school dayboat layout of the 1960s-vintage Rybovich and Merritt 37-foot dayboats with an open aft bulkhead, the 43 Gameboat offers new construction technology, classic lines, speed, ride and ­serious fishability.

Our test boat has twin 725 hp D11 Volvo diesel engines with straight shafts and running gear. She has an 11.5-kilowatt Onan generator, 620-gallon fuel ­capacity and 60-gallon water capacity, and we tested her with all fluids full and two of us on the boat with light winds and less than one-foot chop. She comes on plane with little effort and settles in at a great economical cruise at 2,000 rpm, burning 43 gallons per hour while making 24.8 knots for 0.6 miles per gallon. Pushing her up to make a move to another spot, she slips along at 31.5 knots, burning 64 gph, making 0.5 mpg at 2,400 rpm; at wide open she hits 33.5 knots, burning 70 gph.

Helm and Cockpit

This good-looking 43-footer lacks little, as she has a flybridge with good seating in front of the console with a pull-out refrigerator drawer and side bench seating with storage beneath to port and starboard. Her practical console with centerline teak helm pod features a comprehensive electronics package including a pair of Garmin 8616 multifunction units with a chart plotter and an echo sounder, Garmin autopilot, Simrad SY50 omni sonar, a Volvo joystick controller, a ZipWake trim-tab controller and two Icom ICM510 VHF radios, one on the helm dash and one in the overhead drop-down electronics box. Controls for the Seakeeper 6, engines and push-button switching for pertinent ship’s systems are located on the dash beneath the displays within easy reach of the helmsman.

The 43 fulfills her fishing criteria with a full tuna tower featuring a Garmin 8612, an Icom VHF, a set of Rupp Big Riggs triple-spreader outriggers, a center rigger, and three rod holders facing aft and one forward at the cockpit level. The fully appointed cockpit includes a mezzanine with a freezer with a single lid under the seat and two pull-out drawers under the footrest on the port side. To starboard is a combo freezer/storage box with a split lid under the mezzanine seat and a large deep storage box and a four-slot Plano box compartment under the footrest deck. Outboard of the armrest on the starboard side is a cockpit Volvo joystick controller, and to port on the bulkhead above the backrest is an additional Garmin 8612 display for the crew and guests.

She has freshwater washdown to port and saltwater washdown to starboard, as well as two large in-deck fish boxes, lazarette access and a molded-in transom baitwell/fish box with a clear lid. Her fighting chair, teak deck and cover boards give her the look that fits the DNA of her fishy legacy.

Interior Layout

The open bulkhead of the 43 is closed in with poly curtains and canvas to contain the air conditioning and keep the boat closed up dockside. However, she’s quickly opened up to make full use of her dayboat advantages. Release did a great job with the interior, building fully molded fiberglass engine boxes with integral seating on either side that lift up to expose the entire engine, making any routine maintenance a snap. To port is a U-shaped dinette with a teak table, while the starboard side features a long bench seat with tackle storage behind it.

On our test boat, there is a mini galley up forward of the seating with a sink to port outboard and an Isotherm pull-out refrigerator to starboard outboard—she is truly a dayboat. The forward bulkhead to port has teak cabinets with three doors, one for the microwave and two storage cabinets. The starboard forward bulkhead has a flat-screen television. Release builds the 43 in two layouts: galley up with a second stateroom like our test boat, or a large single forward stateroom with galley down.

Moving below on our test boat, there is a teak-accented head to starboard with a full shower, a vanity and a stainless sink. To port is the second stateroom with over-and-under bunks. Fully forward is the master stateroom with an island queen berth.

The Release 43 Gameboat is a sleek-looking modern take on the nimble dayboats of the 1960s and ’70s. True to her forebears in terms of boat-handling attributes, this 43 spins within her own axis and backs down with little rooting to bury the transom. It is easy to feather the throttles and keep her moving in reverse at a very brisk clip. She has a clean wake at trolling speed for bait fishing, and her lure speed is calm with good lanes for lure placement.

With her classic good looks, solid composite construction, dayboat layout and modern fishing technologies, the 43 is a great blueprint for what’s to come from Release Boatworks, all while paying respect to the boats that set the standard from the great builders of the day.

first columbus Atlantique 43 yacht Night Fury II delivered

First Columbus Atlantique 43 yacht Night Fury II delivered

Columbus Yachts has delivered the first yacht in its Atlantique 43 series, named Night Fury II . According to BOATPro , Night Fury II is currently en route to Malta and is estimated to reach her destination on Friday. She will be on display at Monaco Yacht Show later this year.

The 43-metre yacht was launched in April in a ceremony attended by the European owner and his family, having been sold in 2021 with the buyer introduced by Renaud Canivet of Ocean Drive. Two more 43-metre hulls will be launched by the Italian brand, to a design by Milan-based studio Hot Lab . 

According to the studio, Night Fury II 's exterior is "a fairly organic blend of a motor yacht and a classic sailing hull", seen best in the "sailing-type" stern. Naval architecture is by Palumbo Superyachts in collaboration with Hydro Tec .

Night Fury II' s defining feature is her beach club, which has two fold-out side wings and is arranged around a panoramic swimming pool that sits 50 centimetres above the water. A connection with the outdoors is further encouraged with the yacht's fold-out balconies and bow dip pool, surrounded by sunpads, an al fresco lounge and far-reaching ocean views.

Guest accommodation is across four double cabins, two VIP en suite cabins and two twin cabins. Meanwhile, the full-beam master cabin on the main deck is arranged with a kingsize bed, full-length windows, a dressing room and a private terrace aft.

The main saloon offers two relaxation areas, including one designed as a cinema lounge with its large sofa and 82-inch, wall-mounted television screen.

Other amenities on board include an al fresco dining table for 12 guests and an adaptable guest room that can be used as a gym or library.

A 5.5-metre tender garage is located aft, with additional storage space for a second tender or rescue boat alongside two Jet Skis located on the main deck forward. 

Powered by twin Cat C32 Acert engines of 970kW, Night Fury II can reach a maximum speed of 15.5 knots and a cruising speed of 14.5 knots.

Cruise ship rescues 68 migrants, finds 5 bodies in a boat adrift in the Atlantic Ocean

by Associated Press

ATLANTIC OCEAN - (File Photo by U.S. Coast Guard via Getty Images)

MADRID (AP) — A cruise ship rescued 68 migrants and found five bodies in a wooden dinghy that was drifting off the Canary Islands in the Atlantic Ocean, Spain's maritime rescue agency said Thursday.

It said an oil tanker traveling from northwestern Spain to Brazil spotted the drifting boat on Wednesday afternoon at about 440 nautical miles (815 kilometers or 506 miles) south of Tenerife, one of the seven islands in the Canaries archipelago.

Spanish authorities diverted the Insignia, a cruise ship, to rescue the migrants. The Insignia crew also recovered three of the five bodies on the dinghy. The remains of two people were left at sea because of bad weather hampering their recovery.

The Spanish rescue agency emailed a statement saying the Insignia is expected to arrive on Friday at the port of Santa Cruz, Tenerife.

The Canary Islands is a destination for boats packed with migrants departing from northwestern Africa on a perilous Atlantic route in search of a better life in Europe.

Spain's Interior Ministry says a record 55,618 migrants arrived by boat — most of them in the Canary Islands — last year, almost double the number of the previous year. More than 23,000 have landed so far this year, the ministry said.

The Spanish nonprofit organization Caminando Fronteras (Walking Borders) says more than 5,000 migrants have died so far this year, through May, while trying to reach Spanish coasts, most of them on the Atlantic route. The figure for all 2023 was 6,600, more than double the number for 2022.

Italy’s coast guard searches for dozens of migrants missing after their ship capsized

Sixty-four people were missing at sea after a shipwreck off the Italian southern coast on Monday, United Nations’ agencies said in a statement. In the shipwreck, which took place about 200 kilometres (125 miles) off Calabria, a boat that had set off from Turkey eight days earlier caught fire and overturned, the U.N. agencies said, citing survivors. The Italian Red Cross said overall 12 people were rescued although one person died. (AP video shot by Valeria Ferraro)

The bodies of some of the 64 migrants missing in the Mediterranean Sea after their ship wrecked off Italy's southern coast are disembarked at the Italian southern port-city of Roccella Ionica, early Wednesday, June 19, 2024. U.N. agencies said the boat that wrecked off Calabria had set off from Turkey eight days earlier and caught fire and overturned. Eleven people were rescued Monday, but one died soon after they were brought to land. (AP Photo/Valeria Ferraro)

MILAN (AP) — Italy’s coast guard was searching by sea and from the air on Thursday for dozens of people missing when a boat capsized and partially sank earlier this week in the perilous central Mediterranean, officials said.

The partially submerged boat was still in view, but the commander of the search operation said that no bodies were in sight. The boat capsized about 195 kilometers (120 miles) off the Calabrian coast.

A fishing boat was the first to respond on Monday after the boat capsized and rescued 12 people, one of whom later died. Italy’s coast guard has recovered six bodies, and survivors say more than 60 people are missing. They include more than 20 children.

Survivors reported that the boat motor had caught fire, causing it to capsize off the Italian coast about eight days after departing from Turkey with about 75 people from Iran, Syria and Iraq on board, according to the U.N. refugee agency and other U.N. organizations.

A spokeswoman for Doctors Without Borders said that the survivors have suffered both psychological and physical trauma, and “remained very confused.”

“They have been hospitalized ... and don’t yet know who in their families is alive and who died at sea,’’ said Cecilia Momi, in charge of the group’s humanitarian affairs. “Entire families are destroyed. Some lost a wife, some lost a child, a husband, a friend, a nephew.”

Separately on Monday, the charity rescue ship Nadir rescued 51 people from Syria, Egypt, Pakistan and Bangladesh and transported them to Lampedusa. Another 10 people on the same smugglers’ boat were found dead on the lower deck.

The deaths bring to more than 800 people who have died or went missing and are presumed dead crossing the central Mediterranean so far this year, an average of five dead a day, the U.N. agencies said.

The International Red Cross said that the tragedies are “another testament to Europe’s failing approach to migration and asylum , which prioritizes walls and deterrence over humane welcome.”
