Big Pimpin’ Looks good, doesn’t she? Easy on the eye. It’s difficult to know exactly why but she just looks… right. A sort of understated elegance that whispers style, comfort and control, while at the same time suggesting performance, an unspoken promise of power. The new Solaris 55 was developed by Solaris Yachts’ in-house technical […]

You really can’t make this shit up!  Dee Caffari’s Volvo team Turning The Tide… not only sailed within a few hundred meters of Jennifer Appel’s ‘ghost ship’ the Sea Nymph, but they got some great drone footage of the drifting shitbox that became the biggest story in the US news for about 10 minutes last year.  If you […]

Given that this $2M, 3100-horsepower branding exercise/penis extension doesn’t even use Mercedes engines, I guess it’s…nothing? How long til the concept car, the boat, and Alex Thomson’s Benz-sponsored Open 60 do their photo shoot together?  Might be silly, but still sexy as… Image credit Cigarette Racing.  Thoughts?

While walking the docks today with my gorgeous fiance, I spied Vince Brun standing on this Farr 40 at SDYC. “Hey Vince, is that yours?” “Yes. I just got it!” So we chatted for quite a bit – the Farr 40 NA’s and are in Long Beach this year and he wants to do that […]

The vintage unexploded ordnance was found on Sunday during construction work near London City Airport. The discovery of the bomb led to the closure of […]
