“It’s exciting to have a Pacific Northwest family purchase our first boat,” says Tim Charles, Principal at Tactical Custom Boats, “We are moving forward with Hull#2 – another T40-Express Yacht.”

Tactical Custom Boats have remarkable DNA. The brand was created with the expertise of an award winning design team, Greg C. Marshall Naval Architects, and the proven building construction skills and experience of Platinum Marine and Crescent Custom Yachts. The knowledge from these highly experienced marine experts have come together to create truly unique boats with an emphasis on safety, performance, and style. Tactical employs “big boat” mechanical and electrical systems using top-of-the-line components and robust installation standards.

“Our boats are designed for the specific needs of the commercial, government, and military industries but are also ideal for the recreational market,” says Murray Johnston, Sales & Product Development. Tactical boats are available in four different hull lengths (30’, 40’, 50’, and 60’) and six different configurations (Sportfish, Express Yacht, Crew Transport, Landing Craft, Search & Rescue, and Military). All are fortified with a hybrid foam flotation collar. Propulsion/drive system options include outboard, outdrive, surface piercing drive and jet drive. Joystick control, stabilizing system, and shock mitigating seats are just a few features that ensure Tactical boats are ready for all challenges. Tactical is committed to building high performance, safe, luxurious and reliable boats that can operate safely in the very severe operating conditions found in the Northern latitudes of Canada, the USA and Europe. The Sportfish model has options for a tower configuration making it a competitive choice for sports fishers in the Southern waters of USA, Mexico, and the Caribbean.

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.

Jeanneau NC 795 – designed in France and perfect for Canada

Jeanneau NC 795By Glen Cairns

After a period of record breaking hot and humid weather we had a dose of more traditional east coast conditions for our test run aboard the Jeanneau NC 795, with steady drizzle and a 15 – 20 knot south east breeze kicking up a short chop on Halifax’s Bedford Basin.

Last fall the management team from Dartmouth based Seamasters Services Limited, Chris Mills and Tara Mills along with sales manager Dave Trott, had an introduction to Jeanneau’s NC line at Yamaha’s fall gathering in Ontario.
