Side Power E VisionGood morning John,

This may be of interest to you - the launch of the Side-power upcoming E-Vision series at the METS marine show at the end of November. This innovative motor technology is a new direction for Sleipner Motor and they are providing only “teasers” at this point in the product’s development.

The details behind the technology are being held close and we will provide more information as it becomes available during the upcoming year.  We are hopeful for a launch in the middle to later part of 2020.

Re: Thinking the future 

The very first step of our vision is the new E series Bow and Stern thrusters incorporating the first electric motor designed specifically for marine thruster use. Our engineers have developed a highly efficient, compact and lightweight electric motor that rivals the most cutting edge motors used in the automotive industry today.  

IMTRA Booth• Surpassing the world’s best thrusters
• Up to 60% lighter than comparable models
• Up to 40% less volume than comparable models 
• Integrated proportional controller
• Waterproof, Ignition protected, including the driver/controller
• Battery powered with longer run times
• Time saving and easy to install and maintain
• S-link operated and fits all S-link control panels
• All existing S-link integration with joysticks, radio remotes, station hold systems works directly
• Retrofit options 

Btw, we will have a lot of interesting idea at the Toronto Boat Show – booth 1742

Diesel Fuel MaintenanceSince the late 19th century, a debate has raged on the relative merits of diesel fuel over gasoline. In more recent decades, that argument has included boat manufacturers, and increasingly, individual boaters. As I pass through boat yards in the spring or fall, I’m sure to hear a comment or two (sometimes ruefully, other times with great joy) of the merit of a particular engine or fuel source.

Increasingly, diesel engines are praised for their long-life, ease of maintenance, compact design, reliability and safety, and rate of combustion. As well as cruisers and trawlers, many sailboat manufacturers in particular have chosen to install diesel engines.

Beneteau Flyer 32By Andy Adams

Summer sun boat! The handsome new Beneteau Flyer 32 is all about entertaining and the bow area is one of the main attractions. It's a wide shape forward with a huge anchor locker and opening centre section in the railing that invites you to beach the boat and go swimming. The bow is really one giant sun bed area with armrests that fold down and head rests too, for fall-asleep comfort.

Dufour 460By Katherine Stone

When one does an October yacht review on the Great Lakes you can never be sure of what kind of weather you will get…. and did we ever luck out! A beautiful sunny day with a high of 31 degrees and a perfect 8-10 knot breeze with light chop made for a champagne sailing day. Lucky for me we were at Swans Yacht Sales located in the Whitby Marina on Lake Ontario, trying out the Dufour 460 Grand Large, a flag ship for the midrange Dufour boats. With an overall length of 46’5” and a hull length of 44 ‘, this boat is majestic, not only in size, but also in elegance with timeless and contemporary style.
