I had the opportunity to test the new 43IPS out of Palm Beach, Florida, with HMY Yacht Sales, the Riviera dealer there. A stiff easterly breeze at 15 to 18 knots, pushing against the outgoing tide in the Lake Worth Inlet, made for a dusty exit and provided good conditions for an offshore run. Having run several IPS boats in the past, I knew I'd like that part of the performance and handling, and I wasn't disappointed. She had a solid feel and landed soft when running into a head sea, with little rattling or squeaking down below. She ran the trough with ease, and when I pushed her up and let her stretch her legs a bit, she handled very well at speed, tracking nicely and outrunning her own spray.
