A good part of the fun and enjoyment of boating is just the thrill of going quickly on the water. And if fast is good, even faster really must be better! Here are some straightforward ways to help almost any boat reach its full speed potential.
Boats are different to cars in a lot of obvious ways, but many don’t consider how the two kinds of vehicles use engines to propel themselves. While cars use their engines to push power to the wheels, which then propel the vehicle forwards or backwards, boats instead have their engines directly connected to the propeller, offering direct power that pushes […]
The human obsession with speed goes back to the time when the wheel was first invented. People have been known to have a love for speeding since time immemorial. In ancient times, chariot racing was a very popular sport in ancient Roman and Greek civilisations.
Boats are by no means a new invention, and it’s believed that the world’s earliest civilisations were well acquainted with moving over the water with their rudimentary boats. It’s only been since the dawn of the Industrial Revolution that we’ve seen boat technology hit entirely new heights, from nuclear powered submarines to hyper vessels capable of travelling at incredible speeds […]
As with most sports and activities requiring heavy machinery, boating has a distinct set of rules that should be followed at all times. Some of these rules are not official and more along the lines of polite behaviour. Regardless of how you view it, they are meant to be followed when you are out on the water.
Do you love nothing more than spending your days out at sea, fishing and spending time in the sun with family? If so then you might be thinking about investing in your own sports fishing vessel. You will want a boat that is built for functionality, strength and stability, paired with strapping good looks to make your friends envious.
There are endless beaches in the world, but not all of them are suited for every recreational activity. For instance, a public beach isn’t a good spot for a speedboat due to the noise and the waves it creates, which can cause harm to the people that are swimming. Other beaches, however, are so isolated and difficult to get to […]
British marque and high-performance luxury car manufacturer Aston Martin certainly isn’t the first high-performance car manufacturer to have gone speedboating. But when it did get around to doing exactly that with the launch of its AM37 powerboat at the 2016 Monaco Yacht show, the nautical world sat up and paid close attention. This was James Bond-quality stuff, after all.
