And that’s just a few of the boat lines booked to date! Visitors can expect to see many pre-owned boats as well as a large display of used boats and boat listings from yacht brokerages from Port Credit Harbour Marina, Outer Harbour and Oakville areas.

On-the-hard, will be land displays featuring marine equipment, insurance, finance, charters, sailing schools, boat associations, and canvas makers. Boaters who still need to write the Operator’s Proficiency Test will be able to take the test at the show, with Boat Smart. Discover Boating will on hand to answer any questions about how to get into boating.

A 32’ trailer, fully loaded with all of Raymarine’s award-winning technologies including the A-Series products, C-Series and E-Series Multi-function displays, and Raymarine’s HD digital fishfinders, radars, autopilots, wireless remote technology. Staffed by Raymarine’s product experts it will be a great place to interact with Raymarine’s extensive product line.

The Metro Marine Modellers will on be hand with their ‘small’ model boats. This is an organization with over 100 members, who spend the winter making small boats and the summer racing them. Models built with reality in mind, these boaters are glad to chat about how they built these boats and their history. Weather permitting; they will be demonstrating their boats as well.

And join us for our ever popular seminar series, this year entitled – ‘Living the Dream’. Rob MacLeod of Informedboater.com will once again host a stellar group of speakers who will cover topics such as cruising down the Inter-Coastal Waterway and in the Caribbean. Meet yachting couples who have lived the dream. For those just getting into boating, join us for DIY seminars on how to buy a boat and cruising electronics.

Back by popular demand is our CONSIGNMENT TENT sponsored by The Store, Mason’s Chandlery. Boaters needing to dispose of gently used boat stuff are invited to bring it to The Store prior to the show. The Store staff sells it on their behalf at the Boat Show consignment tent. Forty percent of the proceeds are donated to local youth sailing programs.

Confident SailorBy Rob MacLeod

For three years following our return from a year-long trip to the Bahamas and back aboard our 1981 CS36 Traditional – Sojourn, Mary and I gave a number of talks to experienced and would be cruisers about planning and executing your dream cruise.

This was primarily Mary’s story and she always began with the words,
“It was our two kids, Kevin and Laura, who termed our first trip to the Bahamas ”Living his dream – on her terms”. We did it. There was no mutiny. No divorce...

Pasta Salad

When it's time to head out for a few days or even just an afternoon of cruising, the last place I want to be is in the kitchen with a complicated, lengthy recipe.  So in the spirit of getting out into the sunshine and onto the water faster, here’s a terrific pasta salad recipe that is easy, is full of flavour and will feed a bunch of hungry boaters.

Beneteau GT 35Andy Adams

Great performance in a versatile, modern design

For the Canadian Yachting readers who are not yet familiar with Beneteau’s broad range of power boat models, the Gran Turismo 35 may come as a bit of a surprise. Our test boat is a head-on competitor to the North American built express cruisers and the latest day boats that are coming on the market.

The GT35 has the style and amenities to match the best new designs in it’s size range, the stern drive power to deliver exhilarating high speed performance plus, it still adds in an overtone of Euro style.
