Five Boats to Beat the Heat
When the weather gets hot (as it does in August) there’s nothing better than being on the water. But some boats handle the heat better than others. Here’s what you should think about when the temperature rises.
Make Your Own Breeze
Few things say fun in the sun quite like a Formula 330 Sun Sport. Outrun the heat with a pair of Mercruiser 496s linked to Bravo III outdrives.
Made in the Shade
The hardtop keeps the sun off you on the MJM 29z while the windshield opens up to vent the entire main deck area. The design works, even at anchor since the prevailing winds will be on the bow.
Out at All Hours
Why not do your boating in the ultimate shade: Nighttime. Things really cool down then and if your boat is equipped with LED deck lighting, like this Scout 350 LXF it can be safe, fun, and double your available time to go boating.
Chase the Breeze
Catch the wind and let it take you where it will. The Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 49 will feed your hunger for far horizons and take your mind off the heat.
Cruise to Where it’s Cool
When you’ve got a coastal cruiser such as the Mainship 40 Trawler, why not just cast off and head for cooler climes. Your crew will thank you.
