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.

KillarneyStory and Photos by: Jennifer Harker

We’re aboard Attigouatan, a Pursuit 2260 that normally lives life as a friend’s cottage boat, running back and forth from dock to dock. This will be her longest run in four years, travelling the approximately 120 kilometres (80 miles) northwest from Parry Sound to Killarney, threading our way through the northern reaches of the stunning 30,000 Islands of Georgian Bay’s eastern shoreline.

Her name evokes an early indigenous name for Lake Huron – Spirit Lake.

Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 440

Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 440By Zuzana Prochazka

There are few things more satisfying than watching someone thumb their nose at tradition and introduce something revolutionary that kicks convention to the curb. French designer, Philippe Briand, has done just that for Jenneau’s new line of Sun Odyssey family cruisers. By starting with a clean sheet, Briand re-thought how we move about on deck and below, and the results on the Jeanneau 440 are game changing.

Jeanneau unveiled the first hull of their 440 in Annapolis with dramatic flair. On command, the plastic that sheathed half the boat...
