“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.

KillarneyStory and Photos by: Jennifer Harker

We’re aboard Attigouatan, a Pursuit 2260 that normally lives life as a friend’s cottage boat, running back and forth from dock to dock. This will be her longest run in four years, travelling the approximately 120 kilometres (80 miles) northwest from Parry Sound to Killarney, threading our way through the northern reaches of the stunning 30,000 Islands of Georgian Bay’s eastern shoreline.

Her name evokes an early indigenous name for Lake Huron – Spirit Lake.

Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 440

Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 440By Zuzana Prochazka

There are few things more satisfying than watching someone thumb their nose at tradition and introduce something revolutionary that kicks convention to the curb. French designer, Philippe Briand, has done just that for Jenneau’s new line of Sun Odyssey family cruisers. By starting with a clean sheet, Briand re-thought how we move about on deck and below, and the results on the Jeanneau 440 are game changing.

Jeanneau unveiled the first hull of their 440 in Annapolis with dramatic flair. On command, the plastic that sheathed half the boat...
