The January 2018 Chrisrmas issue of Motor Boat & Yachting is a passagemaker special with full reviews of the Sirena 64, Seaward Nelson 39 and our Christmas boat test on the awesome Rodman Patrol 55.

We have tested some cool stuff for our Christmas boat test in the past and this year it’s the turn of the 50-knot, bulletproof Rodman 55 Patrol. Jack Haines heads to Rodman HQ in Spain to get behind the wheel and see why it’s the boat of choice for police, customs and the military. Watch the video review of the Rodman 55 Patrol now.

Jack is also out on test with the Seaward Nelson 39. Derived from the hull of Seaward’s 42 pilot boat, the 39 promises go anywhere capability with a pair of double cabins and all the creature comforts you will need when you get to the end of your journey.

Our cover star is the Sirena 64, a boat from a yard whose name may be unfamiliar to many but has an impressive boat building history, including building some of the Mageallno range on behalf of Azimut. Editor Hugo puts the 64 through its paces in the South of France.

In the Boat Master section we look in detail at the potentially revolutionary DutchCat electric catamaran and Avon’s new Williams rival, the eJET concept. Be sure to read our Christmas gift guide too, if you’re struggling for a gift for the boater in your life.

This month’s How To feature is on what to do if you are berthing in windy conditions plus we review the Aquanaut Drifter 1500 AK as a secondhand buy and find a £100,000 gem.

On the cruising front we join Peter Cumberlidge as he picks his favourite spots within the Bristol Channel, there’s the story of a Princess 54 owner who moves his boat to Italy after 20 years in France and there is part five of Marlow around the British Isles where our cruising couple explore the Irish Sea, Northern Ireland and Wales.

Enjoy the issue.
