The Templar Marine Group Ltd. has launched its first plug-in electric 26-foot boat for the North American pleasure craft market. Its flagship Templar Cruiser 26 is the first of five hand built electric propulsion vessels to roll off its innovative new assembly line in Kelowna, BC. Click here for video of the Cruiser 26.

The Cruiser 26 is 100% electric, eco friendly, quiet, and maintenance free for year round boating (no winterizing necessary). At 29 feet length overall (including 3-foot rear swim platform) and 9’6 beam (width) it represents a totally new concept in electric boat design. Given the Cruiser 26’s innovative design, lack of internal combustion engine and fuel tanks she is extremely light weight (under 5,100 lbs.) and easily trailered by most average sized family SUVs. Featuring a cabin that can be completely open or fully enclosed, full size head with 6’ headroom, overnight accommodation in the bow, central heating, fridge, and swim platform for the kids, this the ideal family cruiser for a day on the water according to Mark Fry, Templar Marine Groups Founder and CEO.

Fry believes, “Templar Marine is poised to become the ‘Tesla of the water’ providing plugin electric pleasure crafts for the consumer and commercial market”. Fry is seeing a large demand from commercial operators around the world requesting a wide range of uses for electric boats that the company had never envisioned. “As a result we are ramping up production to supply this demand,” adds Fry. Based on its same 26-foot hull mold, Templar will produce the soon to be released Sedan plus Water Taxi/Eco-Tour, Ambulatory Care and Light Cargo Vessel models for a growing list of international customers.

Templar Marine is located in Kelowna, BC and is on a mission to eliminate our carbon footprint on global waterways and provide affordable, year round, eco-friendly, low maintenance electric boating to the general public, for personal use and for small commercial use such as water taxis, eco lodges and sightseeing tours.

Beneteau Antares 11By Andy Adams

What perfect timing! Beneteau is has just announced their new Antares 11 model for North America and I think it will be exactly what many people are looking for.

The boat business has simply taken off during 2020, spurred on by the social distancing requirements of the global battle with COVID-19. In many regards, this situation has brought a lot of families closer because there are few options for travel and recreation. I suspect that many families have rediscovered the joys of being together, going places and doing things.

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?
