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.

How to be as Polite as a Canadian at Gulf Island Marine Park Anchorages

Gulf Island Marine ParkStory and photos by Catherine Dook

One summer I sold ice cream and knick-knacks at Montague Harbour Marina. I was standing behind the counter one day, when the phone rang. “There’s a boat at anchor in the middle of the bay that’s been playing loud music for three hours,” complained an irate-sounding male voice. “Can you make them stop?”

“Um, no,” I replied. “The marina has no jurisdiction over the anchorage. Besides, my only weapon is a till.” The man hung up on me.

Now when you think about it, you can understand why the poor fellow was annoyed.

Cruisers Yachts Cantius 42

Cruisers Yachts Cantius 42By John Armstrong and Andy Adams 

The latest new model from Cruisers Yacht sis the Cantius 42 and this yacht made its debut in the fall of 2017, at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. We had the pleasure of going all through this newest Cantius there and clearly, the Cruisers Yachts people continue to refine and expand on all the features that have made the Cantius line such a success.

The new 42 continues the Cantius family resemblance with handsome and distinctive lines including a big section of hull side glazing port and starboard that makes the full-beam mid-ship master stateroom feel very bright and open.
