Commander 44 AlexanderDon’t miss this brilliant photo double header

Two photos rolled in this week and we can’t choose, so you get them both!! Bonus!

First, the powerboat shot, possibly of the year, which came our way from the nice folks at Chris Craft. It features Alexander J. vaulting over the Commander 44. Very impressive.

Allan Margaret CartoonThe other brilliant POTW came from Rhonda at The Toronto Area Hospice Regatta . It’s a beautiful shot from 2017 by Elle Bruce of Alan and Margaret Gibson holding a cartoon portrait by Cartoon Bob. (Bob will be at TAHR again this year!) The essence of the photo of the week.

These two set a very high standard for the upcoming year – but I know you’re up to it. Got a great shot? Send it in and make it the Photo of the Week.

The rules are simple. It has to be your shot taken in and around boats or from a boat. Or anything else boat related. Or anything you feel is appropriate – sunsets, regattas dock parties – whatever you’ve found interesting.

An Abacos Adventure

Great Guana CayBy Mark Stevens; Photos by Sharon Matthew-Stevens

It’s a perfect Sunday morning jaunt.

We’re gliding through green-blue waters, colours so vivid and bright they hurt your eyes. We’re set for a close reach out of a harbour guarded by a necklace of tiny emerald islands decorated by palms that dance in fifteen knots of wind.

Our boat, “Tropical Escape II” (perfect name for both the boat and our adventure), is a 44-foot Robertson and Caine catamaran, chartered from Sunsail’s Marsh Harbour base on Bahamas’ Great Abaco Island.

Hanse 388

Hanse 388By Katherine Stone

The Hanse group produced their second most popular boat of all time with the Hanse 385. The trick was to build on that winning formula when they upgraded to the Hanse 388, which they have done in spades. The German build quality is first rate and true to the Hanse tradition. Leaving the hull the same with a steep stern and straight stem for an optimal long water line, they went with a slightly stiffer, heavier displacement, new deck, interior layout and window line. Hanse’s highly experienced yacht construction team, judel/vrolijk & co., have combined ease of sailing, comfort and performance into the newly designed Hanse 388.
