Nick Burnham (aka. AQUAHOLIC) to kick off YBW Ask Me Anything sessions

On Monday February 8, the man behind AQUAHOLIC Nick Burnham will be our first special guest in a new series of Ask Me Anything sessions on the YBW forum.

Whether you’re a boating magazine aficionado or a YouTube yacht tour junkie, chances are you’re familiar with the wit and wisdom of Nick Burnham.

One of MBY’s longest-serving and most prolific contributors, Nick set up his own YouTube channel in 2016 after fulfilling a lifelong dream to drive the original Miami Vice boat.

AQUAHOLIC has since gone from strength to strength, racking up roughly 4 million views per month and attracting a loyal following of more than a quarter of a million subscribers who can’t get enough of his access-all-areas tours, which cover everything from humble cuddy cruisers to 60m superyachts.

So who better to kick off our new series of Ask My Anything sessions over on the YBW forum?

Nick will be joining us on the forum on Monday February 8 from 19:30-20:30 (GMT) to answer questions about his career, getting into boating journalism, sea trialling boats, judging the annual Motor Boat Awards, boat ownership, and of course, the secrets of his runaway YouTube success.

“I think it’s fair to say that boats are my life – the rest is just details,” Nick says. “I look forward to chatting boats and anything boat-related with you very soon.”

The thread will be open for anyone to read, but if you want to ask a question, make sure you register and create a free YBW forum account.

Solaris Power 48 Open review: The prettiest boat since the Aquariva?

With the stunning 48 Open, sailing boat brand Solaris has branched out into the world of motorboats. A risky move? Not with the might of Norberto Ferretti behind it. Jack Haines takes a test drive...

If, as a sailing boat manufacturer, you’re going to spread your wings, diverge and build a motorboat then it does no harm if it looks really good. And the Solaris Power 48 Open looks really good.

When the first boat started hitting the boat show circuit in a sort of metallic aquamarine hull paint it stood out in all the right ways but even in the more reserved blue of the boat we tested it’s a beautiful thing to behold.

It’s one of those boats where the closer you look the more mouthwatering the details you pick up. For example, the concave moulding work down the sides of the coachroof and the elegant slope of the tender garage, which calls to mind the tail end of a vintage Porsche speedster.

Solaris Power Lobster 48: Is this the year's most beautiful new flybridge?


The delicate stainless steel windscreen surround and the design of the T-top, with its substantial central stem which spreads out like a toadstool into the roof section.

Then there’s the hull, a feast of beautiful swooping shapes with a gentle reverse sheer at the bow that peels into a pronounced flair and tapers deliciously towards the waterline at the stern.

Where the Solaris’s direct rivals from Fjord, Pardo and Wally employ sharp creases and clean lines the 48 Open is softer and more curvaceous in stature with retro touch points that hark back to the lake boats that its country of origin is so adept at producing.

Solaris may be new to the motorboat game but it entered into this new venture with the help of a man who knows a thing or two about what it takes to build a good boat.

Norberto Ferretti needs no introduction and it is he, along with Brunello Acampora of Victory Design, that give the Solaris Power 48 authenticity, that help give credence to the fact that this is more than a well respected yacht manufacturer having a go at something a bit different.

Mr. Ferretti was on board from the start and his eye for detail and solid engineering is on show all over this boat.
