The builder showcased the Crescent 145’ Muchos Mas (sold) at the recent Ft. Lauderdale Boat Show. The boat also made the front cover and feature story of Boat International magazine’s show issue. They were superstar Canadians!

This notoriety created a lot of interest so there was great interest in all things Canadian. Other British Columbia vendors and suppliers also got a ton of attention at the show too. Tammy Charles the marketing and public relations director for Crescent Yachts expressed the company’s excitement with the reception, “To the best of our knowledge she is the largest recreational vessel to be built and launched in Canada in a number of years. Great for Canada and our attractive currency.”

Tammy added, “Our big news this week is that we are up for some prestigious international awards for the Crescent 145 Muchos Mas.”

Also, a Crescent 108’ is available for sale. Ft. Lauderdale was very good for us and we see hiring more people in the foreseeable future. I think many other industry people are in the same position. Our sister company, Platinum Marine, has several large refit projects underway.”

CYOB Destinations: We Visit the Hilton Beach Marina

Hilton BeachBy Amelia Morris

Ah Canadian simplicity at its finest; small town, big marina. Little Hilton Beach (population 200!), which I am lucky enough to call my cottage country, is located on the north-east coast of St. Joseph Island. The Hilton Beach Marina is one of the largest and most major ports of call in the Western North Channel. It also has a long and rich history dating back to the 1850’s.

I spoke with Marina Manager, Laura McRae and got the full scoop on what goes on in this inconspicuous but busy marina.

Scarab 255 Open

Scarab 255 OpenBy Andy Adams and John Armstrong

You can imagine,at the GroupeBeneteau dealer meeting in Michigan last fall where all the Four Winns, Scarab, Wellcraft, and Glastrondealers had come to see the latest new models, the docks were lined up with gleaming brand-new boats to show the dealers and media – and they certainly put on a show! But for me, the Scarab 255 Open was an immediate stand out. This is a boat that breaks new ground and brings fresh thinking and interpretation of the boating experience to a wide range of buyers.

We had a quick look around but the test drives would have to wait until the next day.
