NC895It’s hard to believe but the Halifax Boat Show is less than 2 months away. That being the case let’s take a look a couple of the larger boats which you can check out.

The new Jeanneau NC895 will be taking pride of place in the Seamaster Marine booth alongside Grady-White, Stingray, Yamaha and their other products. The team at Seamasters are excited about the Jeanneau as it gives them a boat with real cruising potential. Perhaps because the design originates in Northern Europe, the enclosed wheelhouse is perfect of our climate.

With plenty of windows and ventilation the house never seems claustrophobic, but it will certainly extend the boating season.

 

 

 

NC895 3A pair of Yamaha 200s give plenty of punch, but throttle back and you can cruise quietly all day. This model is the first Jeanneau powerboat to be built in the US, but they will no doubt to adding to the production line. You can read a detailed review of this boat in the December issue of Canadian Yachting magazine:

R27 Full Plane

Lake Simcoe based Lefroy Harbour Resorts Inc will have an R27 from Ranger Tugs on display. Built in the Pacific Northwest near Seattle, Washington, Ranger Tugs have a had considerable success with their trailerable cruisers. Admittedly the R27 is at the upper end of “trailerable”, but the boat’s 8’6” beam means it can be towed without permits. Dry weight is given as 7,000 lb., loaded for cruising it will be considerably more.

R27 With DownriggersPowered by the efficient and popular Yamaha F300 outboard motor, the new R-27 is also equipped with a Garmin 7612 Chartplotter which will guide you safely on your passage and when you arrive, the bow thruster will make docking a non-event.

My Happy Place – Lake Simcoe and the Trent-Severn Waterway

My Happy Place – Lake Simcoe and the Trent-Severn WaterwayBy Paul and Sheryl Shard

It’s funny how a body of water can shape you. Shape your mood. Shape your friendships. Shape your future.

Since you’re reading Canadian Yachting, then I’m pretty sure you have a sense of what I’m talking about here - a favourite lake, bay, pond, river or ocean that, when you’re near it, in it or on it, it makes your heart sing and good things happen.

For me, this is Lake Simcoe and the Trent-Severn Waterway in Ontario. Although my husband, Paul, and I have sailed over 100,000 nautical miles in the four sailboats we’ve owned and have been blessed to visit..

Ranger Tugs R-23

Ranger Tugs R-23By: Andy Adams

At the boat shows, the Ranger Tugs’ classic tugboat lines always grab the crowds, with the wives and children most likely to want to stop and have a better look. Well, they should, because the Ranger Tugs R-23 deserves a second look…a long look in fact.

Yes, it’s really a “personality” boat that looks great out on the water, and it will turn heads and start conversations at the gas docks, the locks, or just about anywhere boaters congregate, but the Ranger Tugs R-23 is far more than just cute.
