We Say: Nova Boats’ 39 Sport capably handled 4- to 5-foot seas and, powered by twin 370 hp Volvo Penta diesel sterndrives, topped out at 49.7 mph.

A unique element of the 39 Sport’s patent-pending bottom is a keel pad at the transom to provide lift. Also, the inner strakes curve downward at the bow, assisting in creating a soft re-entry. Those strakes extend to amidships, while the outer set runs full length. The 5-inch-wide chines are turned down 8 degrees. Handling is confident and predictable.

The boat’s cockpit is straightforward with two bolsters and a bench seat aft and a sun lounge on top of the engine hatch. The cabin has 6 feet 11 inches of headroom, facing lounges, a V-berth and a stand-up head.

Nova builds the boat with a foam core, infused vinylester resin and vacuum bagging. The cabin lounges and V-berth are liners. All through-bolts are installed with polymer bushings and backing plates to ensure that the coring can’t get crushed when the nuts are tightened. So go ahead. Take the 39 Sport out in rough seas like we did. It’s built to take it.

Who’d Want One: Offshore boat fans seeking the range and reliability of diesel engines.

Another Choice: Willard Marine and Team Scarab build a diesel-powered 43-foot performance boat called the 43 Assault ($595,000 with twin Cummins 600 hp diesels and Trimax surface drives). It’s a twin-step bottom that runs around 75 mph.

Bottom Line: $550,000 (with twin Volvo Penta D6-370 DPs);

A Tale of Two Top Tens: Japan and U.S. Make, Buy Very Different Vehicles - Motor Trend
Comparing the Automotive Best-Sellers in Japan and the U.S.

About the size of California, a state that saw new-car sales of around 1.8 million last year, Japan is a car-hungry culture, consuming more than 5.5 million new vehicles over the same period. In other words, Japan fits three times as many new cars in its Golden State-size borders as the Golden State itself. For context, total U.S. car sales came in at 16.5 million; thus, if Japan were the size of the U.S., it would translate to new-car sales of about 143 million. Whoa.
