September 2011 Issue of Blue Water Sailing.
In our Boat Show Preview, European designs dominate the new boat scene this fall, but American builders have also stepped forward with some innovative and interesting cruising boats. In Blue Water Boats, the new Dufour 405 Grand Large combines a sweet performance hull and rig with a classic yacht style interior. In Exotic Destinations, we take a look at Thailand, San Blas Islands, and The Med. In Captains Log, George discusses life without a GPS.
