Greenline 40Greenline 40 making its debut at TIBS

The Toronto International Boat Show celebrates its 60th anniversary from January 12 -21, 2018 at the Enercare Centre. Since 1959, the Toronto Boat Show has grown exponentially to become North America’s largest indoor boat show featuring world class displays, 550 exhibitors and more than 1,200 boats from 6ft to 51ft for visitors to see and board. Visitors also can shop among thousands of marine accessories at the Mariners Marketplace and get summer-ready with outdoor gear, toys and décor at Cottage Country.

The Toronto Boat Show is a one-stop shop to see and buy all the latest boats, innovations and new products to hit the market. Exhibitor spaces are sold-out with all the major boat dealers from across Canada ready to showcase the latest boat innovations alongside manufacturer representatives who will be on hand to provide knowledgeable product information.

Cottage CountryOne of the must-sees is the first 2018 Greenline 40 Hybrid Yacht that will make its debut at the Toronto Boat Show. The yacht is good for the environment as it uses up to four times less fossil fuel than a planning powerboat in similar conditions. Not only does this innovation reduce fuel consumption, it also allows efficient electric propulsion using power supplied by the battery and solar power (Booth 156). Another new offering that is sure to appeal to boaters is the Dock Links Membership. With partner marinas from Lake Ontario through the TSW, into Georgian Bay and North Channel, members will receive 50% off transient rates, .05/L fuel discounts, parts discounts and free pump outs. With the NEW 2018 Dock Links Member Perks app, members have access to over 1500 discounts across Canada from the Coast to Coast! And membership is good for 365 days per year (Booth: C-506).

New this year, the Toronto Boat Show is offering a $5 after 5pm ticket (any day except VIP Preview Day) and free parking after 4pm on weekdays! A great value proposition to accommodate those who prefer to visit the show during the week after work and/or revisit multiple days to see, shop and compare from hundreds of new products and boats.

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.
