    A few friends of Hooniverse have decided to try their hand at podcasting. The subject? Formula 1. This is Backseat Racers hosted by Joe Q Carioti and Candice Canada. It’s a short recap show that talks about the race right after the hosts view it. This week, Joe and Candice discuss the 2019 Bahrain F1 Grand Prix. […]

    Anybody else having trouble keeping up? When I was 14, my parents would dismiss the music of the day as a repetitive series of bleeps and yowls. Frankly, their description of The Prodigy was pretty accurate, but I would defend Braintree’s incendiary pop/rave/rock crossovers to the hilt. Hey, guess what? I’m now not far off […]

    After last week’s shallow-draft scorcher from North America, today’s offering for Motorboat Monday comes from three thousand miles West, and could barely be more different in character than the V8-motivated Kindsvater. It’s only fifteen feet long, and has a fraction of the power, but good things come in small packages. As with last week’s boat, […]

    455 Cubic Inches. Oldsmobile V8 power. In a boat which displaces so little it’s practically on the plane when it’s not moving. This glorious machine was glinting away on the Classic Motor Boat Association stand at the 2017 London International Boat Show. And I’ll bet that, given an opportunity, it would have been one of […]

    I love it when I buy a product and I know exactly what has gone into its creation. I love it when I look at a piece of furniture and find more to it than immediately meets the eye- when you remove a drawer and find beautiful dovejoints on the carcass, or when you dismantle […]

    There once was a company named Marine Projects, who started to produce boats in their Plymouth, Devon yard in 1965. The first craft they marketed was a round-bilged motor yacht, sharing its well-proven hull mouldings of the Senior 31. Their version was marketed as the Project 31, and was successful enough to catapult Marine Projects […]

    Those curves. That pronounced sheer. The authority of line you only see when a design has formed organically from the mind of a talented designer. All of these attributes and more can be found on the Classic Riva Aqcuarama, and many more from that famous Cantieri. No matter what the angle you gawp at them […]

    Today’s maritime masterpiece has been giving me tingly feelings inside since I was ten years old. I first read about her in a 1990 copy of Motor boat & Yachting magazine. I read the story again, and again, and again. I started to doodle sketches of her on my schoolbooks. As you can tell, she […]

    There are a lot of incredible motor yachts out there, money-no-object masterpieces far beyond the means of the common man and pretty much irrelevant aside from being nice to look at. Some, though, have a certain tangible quality that shines through, beyond a mere gloss of showmanship. There are some indecently fast ones, too. Stick […]

    Battlestar Galactica. That’s what I thought she looked like as we sat on the dockside in our coach, awaiting to board the Stena Discovery. It was a college trip to Amsterdam, it was the year 2000 and I was making my first trip on this incredible craft. It looked like no other vessel I had […]
