Vladislav Murnikov Holby Marine 1994-1996? 240 sq. ft. portable portable

Approx. trailering wgt.: 2,160 lbs.

In 1995 the MX 20 won the Sailing World magazine Boat of the Year award for the best daysailer/weekender category. (A different boat, a daysailer, won the PHRF/sport-boat category.) With her retractable sprit, huge spinnaker, and streamlined looks, we would have thought the judges might have put her in the sportboat category, but it seems we were mistaken. We can't explain why; her SA/D and D/L certainly point her in that direction—and we can't visualize taking the pre-teen kids on an overnight cruise and dropping the hook in a choppy anchorage in this lightweight streaker. Best features: Holby Marine is a high-end builder who used balsa core construction and Hall spars. With her round-topped cabin she has a bit more headroom than her comps, at least amidships. Worst features: Her deep, narrow fin keel and sword-thin rudder look a little fragile for knockabout cruising, and also might attract weed with their vertical leading edges.

How To Have A Perfect Boating Experience

How To Have A Perfect Boating Experience

Lets start by identifying what exactly certain boats are. Sometimes the terminology can get lost on beginners, so well look at some of the most common boats and what theyre called. These boats are exactly what the name implies. They are meant to be used for fishing. Most fishing boats are powered by outboard motors, and many also have a trolling motor mounted on the bow. Bass boats can be made of aluminium or fibreglass.
