Oceanus 45Since the sad passing of Ocean Yacht Sales owner John Roy this past August, many have wondered what the would happen with the company he had defined over so many years. Well that question has been answered with the announcement below.

Halifax, Nova Scotia, Nov. 10, 2017 - The Directors of the TriNav Group of Companies today announced the successful acquisition of Halifax, Nova Scotia-based Ocean Yacht Sales.

The TriNav Group of Companies, which owns TriNav Marine Brokerage, the largest marine-related broker in Eastern Canada, and Fairhaven, Massachusetts-based Athearn Marine Agency, said the acquisition will provide pleasure boat clients with a broader and more comprehensive customer base through the company’s brokers throughout Atlantic Canada and the Eastern Seaboard.

TriNav Director Trevor Decker said the company has been looking for avenues to grow its pleasure boat sales and offerings and the addition of Ocean Yacht Sales will benefit new and existing clients alike.

“Ocean Yacht Sales has always been one of the most recognized and respected pleasure boat brokerage companies in Atlantic Canada. The company’s excellent reputation was a direct result of the hard work and integrity of owner John Roy. The entire marine industry was deeply saddened when John passed away this summer after a brief battle with cancer. We are committed to continuing John Roy’s legacy at Ocean Yacht Sales through his core principles of key industry knowledge and excellent customer service.”

“TriNav's acquisition of Ocean Yacht Sales will combine the talents, expertise and resources of the TriNav Group of Companies to further enhance Ocean Yacht Sales’ expertise in pleasure yacht sales and service. We are very excited to add this very successful company to our group,” Decker added.

ABOUT OCEAN YACHT SALES
Ocean Yacht Sales was started in 1963 by Orin Archibald, providing yacht brokerage service to Atlantic Canada. The company excelled and grew, formulating a reputation of knowing the perfect boat for its clients. In the mid-1980s, John Roy joined Ocean Yacht Sales and acquired the company in 1991. Since that time, John grew the brokerage to include new yacht sales with the C&C lines and adding Beneteau, Dufour and X-Yachts. John's integrity, fairness and attention to detail helped make Ocean Yacht Sales the premier pleasure boat brokerage in Atlantic Canada.

Where do you find the best Ice Cream?

Cowichan BayBy Catherine Dook

Where do you find the best ice cream?

We had sailed around the Gulf Islands for a couple of weeks, dropping the hook wherever we wanted, and then lying there for days so relaxed as to be in an altered state of consciousness. John called it euphoria, but I called it a ‘coma.’ Whichever it was, we had a wonderful time.

Our two solar panels, shiny with the brilliant sunshine of July, kept our refrigerator running so well (at least during the day) that I was able to keep artisan bread dough chilled, half-a-dozen Mars Bars...

Scarab 255 Open

Scarab 255 OpenBy Andy Adams and John Armstrong

You can imagine,at the GroupeBeneteau dealer meeting in Michigan last fall where all the Four Winns, Scarab, Wellcraft, and Glastrondealers had come to see the latest new models, the docks were lined up with gleaming brand-new boats to show the dealers and media – and they certainly put on a show! But for me, the Scarab 255 Open was an immediate stand out. This is a boat that breaks new ground and brings fresh thinking and interpretation of the boating experience to a wide range of buyers.

We had a quick look around but the test drives would have to wait until the next day.
