This unbelievable machine is for the captain who needs space to entertain, but also wants to go fast in a sleek package while doing so. It sleeps 22 comfortably between staterooms, cabins, and crew quarters. The 46M also lives up to its name with a top speed of 26 knots in something that resembles a warship’s little sibling.

Arcadia 100 – $9 million

This Italian stallion is a look into the future of boating energy conservation. While at anchor, the Arcadia 100 has 538 square feet of solar recharging capability and can be propelled by electricity once offshore. The yacht lives somewhere between spa and hotel with a high-design layout and fixtures throughout.

This stunner combines the best in speed, style and performance. Otam has made several Millennium models, but their 2017 edition (build started in 2015) is the result of years of research and development. Made in America and with a fiberglass hull, you’d be proud to march along the ocean at its 40-knot cruising speed.

Martha Ann – $79 million

There is nothing understated about this behemoth. Built by German shipyard Lurssen, it’s marketed as a “lifestyle investment” more than a boat. You could essentially go off the grid with a gym, swim-up bar and a ridiculously lavish stateroom to retire to after a day on the water. Martha Ann has more exclusive trim work than you’d care to know and comes with a selection of high-end water toys like jet skis and scuba gear.

Aston Martin AM 37 – $1 million+

The storied British automaker is entering the maritime game with this undeniably beautiful speedboat. Built in conjunction with Quintessence Yachts, The boat is a tribute to the design of many of their cars including the Vulcan and new DB11. It has the flexibility to transform into an overnight vessel too as the cabin table flips into a bed. Every finish is made with the finest materials and the handsome woods and leathers are exactly what you’d expect from the brand.

The Night Agent season 2: Everything we know so far
We'll get you ready for The Night Agent season 2!
Luciane Buchanan and Gabriel Basso in The Night Agent.

The Night Agent may not be everyone's choice to be among the best shows on Netflix, but it's in the top ten for us! The Shield creator Shawn Ryan adapted Matthew Quirk's spy action thriller, The Night Agent, for Netflix in 2023, and it proved to be a hit out of the gate. By Netflix's internal metrics, it's the sixth-highest viewed series in the history of the platform.

Those kind of numbers mean that a second season was inevitable, and Netflix made it official just over a week after The Night Agent premiered. Since the series is back in production, the details about what's coming up on the show have started to trickle out. To help you stay on top of this series, here's everything we know about The Night Agent season 2.

The 10 best Dominican cigars I’ve tried and tested in 2024
Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic.

Every seasoned cigar lover has a preference for where their cigars come from. Cuban and Cuban cigars are the more obvious choices, but there is also Nicaraguan tobacco, Central African, Indonesian, Mexican, Ecuadorian, and Dominican. Some tobacco is even grown in the United States. Each region has a distinct flavor profile that adds a little something extra to the tobacco grown locally, as well as the cigars made there. The Dominican Republic is prized by many connoisseurs because of exactly this -- a rich, unique profile that enhances Dominican-grown cigars. That's in no small part due to the fertile soil and thriving climate of the region, which is ideal for tobacco growth and cultivation. If you've never tried a Dominican cigar, you're in for a real treat, there are some fantastic options out there.
The best Dominican cigars I've tried

Out of all the cigar guides I've put together so far, this one was one of the more interesting experiences for me. I had a great time trying out Dominican cigars, and I've definitely come away with an appreciation for blends made in the region. I'd also like to point out that Corey Suarez helped recommend some of these. If you haven't tried the JR Cigars or Cigars.com concierge service yet, you really should. Here's a little more about all of the best Dominican cigars I've tried:

The 12 best Connecticut cigars I’ve tried and tested in 2024
Best Connecticut cigars up close and personal

Connecticut cigars are the clear winner for smoking on a hot summer day, in the morning with some coffee, or when you just don't want a swift kick in the teeth (of pepper). There's no shortage of options, either. Connecticut shade wrappers are one of the most prevalent in the world of cigars, and it's certainly the most common natural shade. Maduro is also popular, but the two wrapper types couldn't be any more different. Connecticut wrappers, and by proxy Connecticut cigars, are typically mild to medium in strength and brimming with creamy, smooth flavors. They're composed of tobacco leaves grown in the Connecticut River Valley in the United States -- which is where the name Connecticut comes from. Consistent and flavorful, some of the best beginner-friendly cigars are Connecticut-wrapped, but you should never sell them short. A Connecticut shade cigar can be just as refined, elegant, and premium as any other. If you know where to look, you may even find some of your favorite blends in the category across a wide range of brands and cigar makers.

I'm about to take you on a magical, doughy, and delicious trek through the broad range of Connecticut cigars. In short, here are the best Connecticut cigars tried and tested by a genuine enthusiast of the craft: yours truly.
The best Connecticut cigars I've tried and tested
While the Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper is considered a Connecticut shade, I did my best to steer clear of recommending them for this list. They're better classified as a Maduro shade or darker cigar. That doesn't mean you should avoid them, quite the contrary. But for this list, I wanted to stick to smooth, relaxing smokes that are strong on flavor but not quite so strong on pepper and spice. I also tried not to choose a lot of repeats. If you see your favorite cigar missing, that might be because it was recommended on another list or it just didn't make the cut. If you have any recommendations of your own, I'm always available through social media or email. Without further ado, let's get this thing started.
