A43 RunningAccording to the folks at Fraser Yacht Sales, you couldn't ask for more - the new Azimut Atlantis 43 is destined to be the new standard setter for its class. Bold and sporty on the outside, cool and refined on the inside; made in Italy - the latest Atlantis Collection offering is unadulterated Italian design and content. Making its Canadian premier at the recent Vancouver Boat Show, the new model exemplifies the Italian boatyard's ability for continuous innovation while retaining their trademark style.

The maindeck is this boats’ real centerpiece. Transformable and functional, it features two large three‐person sunpads, one to the stern and one to the bow. With a one-piece windshield and lateral picture windows, the Atlantis 43 offers its guests unprecedented amounts of natural light that can also be modulated thanks to the large, electrically operated soft top. The exterior living area is equipped with a large dining room table, C‐shaped sofa, and kitchen area. The relaxation area next to the pilot station quickly transforms into forward facing seating, providing a comfortable vantage point from which to enjoy every moment of the cruise.

The stern area with 3.5 sq.m. of decking is a masterpiece of engineering. Accessible via two sets of steps on each side, this terrace can be used to haul in and launch the tender or water toys perfectly housed in the garage under the stern sunpad.

The same engineering standards seen above deck can also be found below deck. A full‐height forward owner’s suite, with lots of natural light thanks to the hatch and extensive hull windows features an exclusive bathroom complete with separate shower stall, plenty of stowage space for luggage and equipment. Beyond this cabin there’s abundant stowage in the rest of the below deck areas including two closets and two sets of wall cabinets, as well as a large compartment below the bed.

A43 MaindeckLocated astern, the guest cabin has no shortage of light or space. However, its real secret is its transformability. The sliding beds mean you can choose between a queen and two twin beds, a feature made even more unusual by the option of adding a third bed along the left‐hand wall.

The heart of the interiors is the amidships living area, with a kitchen zone (sizeable and well equipped), and a dinette with a height‐adjustable table that also converts into a bed. From here you can reach a second onboard head which also includes a separate shower stall. This can either serve the guest cabin or function as a daytime bathroom.

The new Azimut Atlantis 43 is powered by two 400 HP Volvo Penta D6 engines for a maximum speed of approximately 35 knots and cruise of 30 knots.

With comfort, style and performance, the new Azimut Atlantis 43 redefines the express cruiser segment.

Azimut yachts are also available in eastern Canada through Executive Yacht in Ontario.

Cowichan Bay to Genoa Bay – Almost the Gulf Islands

Cowichan Bay to Genoa Bay – Almost the Gulf Islands

 By Catherine Dook

“So you’re going offshore to Genoa Bay,” said an old salt at coffee that morning. Genoa Bay was 15 minutes away from our homeport of Cowichan Bay and hardly counted as offshore, but it was our first destination that fall. The fog had socked us in all that morning, so John and I drank coffee and gossiped with the neighbours while waiting for the weather to lift. We’d provisioned with cans of chilli, a sack of apples, and tanks full of water. We’d tested the engine and the anchor winch. We were ready.

Do you know how many boaters you run into while standing in the lift lines of Blue Mountain and the surrounding private ski clubs? Quite a few! Start some conversations on the ski lifts and you might be surprised how many avid boaters you can meet.

Many who boat say that winter sports are just there to pass the time until the ice clears and you can get your boat launched and start boating again. As a ski instructor, you tend to meet even more interesting boaters… Read more about the Reef Boat Club ....

Since the initial article of this series we have looked at the iPad and its use as a marine navigation instrument. We have discussed its functionality, available apps, relevant hardware and compared it to traditional charplotters. This focus on iPad led one of our readers to an interesting question that we have yet to address.

Question: Why has the focus been solely on the use of iPads for marine navigation rather than Android devices?
