Speed with Class

Although the new Sabreline 42 has opted for the classic and elegant look of an east coast trawler, its deep V-shaped hull can nonetheless handle some of the most demanding challenges. The one we tried out near Quebec City was equipped with two Yanmar 500 HP engines (instead of the standard Twin 370 HP engines), which blithely powered us through the 30 knot barrier. At 32 knots we were still not going full - throttle, yet the boat was racing along with no vibration (thanks especially to its four-blade propellers) and the noise level was relatively low. It was a real delight on this mirror-smooth stretch of river, though such a speed would have been impractical in choppy water.

The interior pilothouse is quite comfortable and offers good visibility, but the one on the flying bridge is even nicer in fair weather. Just think of an open-air officers' mess with a bench seat for guests, a table, and a fridge. A platform extends the flying bridge towards the stern, providing ideal storage space for an annex while completely roofing over the quarterdeck.

Sabreline 42 - InteriorTo starboard of the interior pilothouse, a sliding door opens out onto the deck. The wide, secure gangways lead to a very spacious foredeck with all the room you need for getting about... or just lazing around.

The main lounge is remarkably spacious, very well lit by a dozen portholes, its cherry-wood finish creating a warm ambience. In the bow, the owner's cabin furnishes all the creature comforts you may wish. The guest cabin is on the starboard side, facing the kitchen.

We were particularly impressed by the engine room, which houses all of the systems: engines, generator, plumbing, and electrical system. Everything is easily accessed, a definite plus for inspections or maintenance work. This technical service area sets a new standard; it's a real nirvana for the mechanically inclined.

Sabreline 42 - Helm seatThe Sabreline 42 is delivered with a great deal of standard material and equipment, including a 10 kW generator. But its elegance on water is the one thing we could never forget.

The Middens of Galiano Island

By Catherine Dook

We motored our way into Montague Harbour along a twisted channel with our engine muffled by the leaning trees.

“This is peaceful,” I told my husband, John.

“Look,” I pointed to an eagle sitting on the top of a tree overlooking the channel entrance like a sentinel giving permission for us to pass. Dignified, unruffled, his impassioned gaze noted and then dismissed us, as uninteresting and perhaps unworthy. I was tired. We’d pulled up anchor at Portland Island that morning, and the grind of the diesel engine had worn me down.

Almost a decade ago, Cruisers Yachts Inc., launched an entire line of express cruisers called “Cantius” (named after company owner KC Stock’s grandfather) that began with the 48Cantius then came the 54, the 60 and now the Cantius 50. In the fall of 2017, we will be at the debut of the 42 Cantius at the Fort Lauderdale International boat show.

These designs have a strong family resemblance withhandsome and distinctive linesand with a design philosophy that you could say, pioneered the new version of the express cruiser.
