The Moncton Boat Show motors back into the Moncton Coliseum this spring, March 23 to 25! The show returns the same weekend as the New Brunswick Sportsmen’s Show and the Dieppe Fly Fishing Forum, offering visitors three great events under one roof – and all the excitement needed to start planning for the warmer months ahead.

Moncton Boat Show

“For those looking to make their next boat purchase, shopping at the show is a great chance to climb aboard new models, compare show-only deals, plus secure financing and insurance all in the same place,” said Scott Sprague, Show Manager. “Boaters of all interests and skill levels will find something to suit their taste.”

At the show, visitors will find fishing boats, cruisers, runabouts, inflatables, personal watercraft and much more from 13 of the region’s leading dealers.

Passes will be available at the door for $10 per adult, $8 per junior (10-16), $25 per family of four, and $15 for a full weekend. Attendees are encouraged to keep an eye out for exclusive specials and dealer features and fill out a Door Prize ballot to win TWO tickets to the Cavendish Beach Music Festival (a value of $430.00).

Features for the whole family will include the Discover Boating Centre, a place to find out about boats and boating. Visitors will be able to talk with friendly experts and learn everything needed to get started in the recreational boating world. Plus, lots more to see at the neighboring New Brunswick Sportsmen’s Show and Dieppe Fly Fishing Forum. The three events come together to bring one big weekend of fun for boaters and outdoor adventure seekers alike!

The Moncton Boat Show is produced by Master Promotions Ltd. For complete details, visit the show’s website at www.MonctonBoatShow.ca and connect with the show on Facebook and Twitter.

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.
