Beneteau FigureJust in time for holiday giving, meet the Figaro Bénéteau 3 - the world’s first production foiling monohull.

Vanquish 5Families with young people who are seriously into waterskiing or wake boarding face a difficult choice: Buy a dedicated tow sports boat and make the kids happy or buy a more traditional family boat and make everyone comfortable.

CY54 9835 RHWe met the new Cruisers Yachts 54 Cantius under almost ideal circumstances, on the beautiful Trent Severn Waterway at Lock 31in Buckhorn, Ontario, during the best summer weather on record.

Beneteau Swift 30 1The BeneteauSwift 30 is more affordable and slightly smaller than the very successful Swift 34 trawler, opens up this type of cruising to more people. Starting with the 30 also begins a process where a loyal Beneteau customer can move up in size.

 

 

Cy fly60In the February 2017 issue of Canadian Yachting, we rediscover the virtues of the flying bridge during our time with the new Cruisers Yachts 60 Fly.

CockpitThe Rossiter 23 Classic Day Boatis both a logical extension of the Canadian-built Rossiter line and a boat that breaks new ground for the company. We think Canadian Yachting readers will find this boat very interesting because it's so well suited to the way people are using their boats today.

NC 0219It's rare for Canadian Yachting magazine to report on the same boat twice, but that is how important the Jeanneau NC 11 has become – that and there have been many refinements to the 2017 models. This boat is well worth a second look.

60 fly 1Canadian Yachting magazine readers will certainly be familiar with the Cruisers Yachts line of boats because we have had the good fortune of doing a review on almost all of their recent models, most particularly their Cantius line of coupe express cruisers.

Almost Canadian, Almost Caribbean

Grand Turk IslandBy Mark Stevens • Photos by Sharon Matthews-Stevens

Late afternoon, Grand Turk Island in the Turks and Caicos.

I’m chilling on the balcony of our beachside suite at the Bohio Dive Resort, gazing at sun-burnished whispering surf nuzzling the sand ten metres away.

A single couple populates the beach, shaded by a Norfolk pine. She leans over to say something to her partner every once in a while. Moments later he answers her.

Fast, spacious and stable – the Leopard 45 is the stuff dreams are made of!

During those cold, cold, sunless, dreary months of January and February, I want to remember the fun I had in the sun on the water. Did someone say charter? In warm weather?In warm waters?

If you plan on chartering when the weather in Canada is less than ideal (mmmmm…that’s two months of bad sledding), then I suggest you charter, purchase to charter, or just buy to own and enjoy for yourself the newly redesigned Leopard 45 sailing catamaran.
