All set?

Then away we go, into the pages where you'll find all there is worth knowing about powerboats and related matters.

This week and in weeks to come, you'll not only be reading the news, you'll be watching and listening; right on, we present two video interviews with prominent industry people, Greg Fisher, CEO of Club Marine Insurance and Tony Ross, of Ensign Ship Brokers.

We also reveal the very interesting plans of well-known industry identities Wesley Moxey and Lee Dillon; take a look at their forthcoming Belize Motoryacht range, I think you'll be impressed.

As you know, we've been very involved this past week with the 23rd (my 23rd, too) Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show. We will have lots more news over the coming week.

According to reports, sales were on a high despite lower attendance figures and Riviera was certainly one to make the proverbial hay while the sun shone (in between the showers!).

Other action locally was the largest superyacht ever to go to auction in Australia, the magnificent ‘Masteka 2'; bidding stalled at a neat $9 million at the Runaway Bay Marina auction, but we hear a definite sale, somewhere in the $10.5 million range, may be close.

Across the blue pacific, the big engines roared into life at the opening round of the 2011 Superboat International Race Series off Florida's Cocoa Beach.

Now if you fancy some spectacular interior d├ęcor', it's a case of have we got a deal for you?

Take a look below at the fabulous prints now available from the famous Cigarette Racing Team.

There are no captions beneath; we figured no caption would do them justice and hey, you'll see for yourself.

Enjoy the browse........
