Jeanneau 60 Under SailBy Katherine Stone, Canadian Yachting

For many, the 2020 sailing year will be one to go down into the books as “different”. With delayed boat launches, cancellations of regattas, flotillas, rendezvous and boat shows, everything was in flux. So, how does a boat reviewer do her job, well she gets creative! So, I contacted Catherine Guiader, North American Jeanneau sales manager, at their Annapolis location. 

At the Dusseldorf Boat Show (The BOOT), planned for January 2021, Jeanneau Yachts plans on unveiling a new strategic shift for the shipyard by replacing the hugely popular Jeanneau Yachts 58 (discontinued in 2019 with just over 170 sold) with the new Jeanneau Yachts 60. Hull #1 will be splashed in France in November 2020 – definitely a highlight for the boating industry. With an undeniable move to an upscale market, the new style will be incorporated into the rest of the 54 -64 range and feature a semi-custom personalization programme.

Jeanneau 60 SalonThe joint work of navel architect Philippe Briand and British designer Andrew Winch has produced a new, innovative style which highlights a high sheer line, integrated bowsprit, inverted bow and a sleek hull chine. Coupled with this is the longitudinal garage that will accommodate a 10-foot (2.9m) tender that can now be launched and hauled effortlessly. The options on and in the new hull and deck are formidable with an outdoor galley, releasable forestay, furling mast and/or a rollbar, hard top or spray hood. In essence you can easily have a boat adapted for lengthy blue water ambitions, or tailored down to a more casual, family oriented and sporty “Mediterranean” model. Briand has risen to the top of his field in the design of a sleek, fast hull and Winch adds his expertise with attention to detail and quality of fit and finish. 

So, let’s move inside and look at the possible new 19 layouts that highlight more volume! To make it easier, the Jeanneau Yachts 60 can be split into four living areas. Large hull ports let in copious amounts of natural light and provide excellent views while dining below. The use of solid wood, beautiful fabrics and leathers by Foglizzo blend together to provide an unbelievable feel of luxury. 

StateroomThe boat sails on its chine, allowing you to carry more sail before having to reef. 

The Jeanneau Yachts 60 could possibly be an owner’s dream-come-true, designed just for you to satisfy all your needs, wants, preferences and cruising desires. Although their target market has been 55 - 65 year-old clients, they are now finding that couples with younger, as well as older children are becoming more frequent owners.

As of yet we do not have a sail away price confirmed yet.

Hanse 418By Katherine Stone

Optimized sailing performance and comfortable living – a sweet ride

The expression that came to mind immediately was “Sweet Ride” – and I wasn’t referring to the latest ride at the CNE, a chairlift, or a new Mercedes – it was the new Hanse 418, as it cleanly cut through the water in a gusty 15-20 knot breeze averaging 6-8 knots on Lake Ontario. She was easy to steer and manoeuver even in the big gusts. The extra length over the 388 has made a big difference, with German architects Judel/Vrolijk focusing on updates to the deck layout, cockpit and stern.

ChemainusBy Marianne Scott

The approach to the Chemainus Municipal Dock from Stuart Channel is straightforward and is protected from all but strong northerly winds. The only obstacle may be some large log booms often anchored in the harbour. The Dock is immediately south of the B.C. ferry terminal; the ferry runs to Thetis- and Penelakut Islands.

Harbourmaster Harmen Bootsma, who has been the cheerful, welcoming presence here for a couple of decades, is ready to catch your lines.

WinterizationBy Andrew McDonald, Lakeside Marine Services

“They don’t make ‘em like they used to”, is a phrase that many of us are familiar with. Most of the time it is in reference to a bygone era of better, and it’s used to lament the sorry state of what we have today. It is a phrase that can be applied to many areas of our lives: architecture, art, furniture, tools. Boats? I would argue that they don’t make them like they used to. But, is that lamentable, or is it progress?

Progress, I think. With this concept in mind, as we enter another season of putting boats to bed for the winter, why do we winterize as we always have?
