Europe's best motor boat magazine
With over 100 years of continuous publication, Motor Boat & Yachting is Europe's premier motor cruising magazine. MBY's boat tests are acknowledged as the most authoritative in the business and its technical coverage is without equal. Motor Boat & Yachting is part of IPC's marine portal website YBW.com. YBW.com is the UK's leading marine community website.
We've pulled out all the stops for our Christmas boat test special by getting on board one of the Royal Navy's Type 23 frigates and giving it the full boat test treatment. Full-lock turns, helicopters, massive gas turbines and live weapons' tests - do not miss this one. Another true Brit is also on test this month, the Fairline Squadron 48, a boat that comes to market with a scarcely believable price. We also go flying on the Pershing 62, and check out the Botnia Targa 35 as a second-hand buy. Our Christmas Gift Guide is packed with great present ideas, and we announce the shortlist for our 2014 Motor Boat Awards. There's lots more in the issue, including a cruising guide to Malta, the amazing story of the racing driver who built his own superboat and the carbon-fibre boat offering truly mind-bending fuel efficiency.
