Winter Boat Shows are back on in Canada and we are ecstatic!

The February issue of CY is jam packed with a gallery of Hot New Boats!  Over the summer months and at Fort Lauderdale Boat Show the CY Team got on board to view each boat.  We curated an amazing gallery of up-and-coming fibreglass beauties ranging from day boats to cruisers.

The Regal 36 LS was reviewed by Jill and Andy on a hot summer day in August.  This boat is tech-savvy and laid out perfectly for day use with friends and family on board as well as cruising with your family.  The large swim platform can accommodate your entire crew for that “At Anchor Swim Party”.  This boat is all about getting the floaties out, pfd’s on and making memories!

In late October, when the water was already starting to thicken, Jill and Andy dawned their toques and winter wear for a full review of the Parker Weekend 800.  The Weekend 800 is very functional and perfect for a couple or small family.  The hard-top enclosure provided protection from the elements even so late in the season.  That is all we are going to share – you will have to read the full review in the February issue if you want to know more!

There’s more…

Guest writer Richard Mitchele offers a twist on our Lagoon 51 Sail Review.  Richard was lucky enough to be present in Spain for a Beneteau press-event and shares his experience onboard the Lagoon, all the while comparing it to a “Patin” – the Spanish catamaran that you steer with your body!  This will be interesting!

Destination Lake Ontario!  Steven Bull, host of Waterways TV, writes about Western Lake Ontario.  Steven and his young family are boaters on Lake Ontario so who better to tell us what’s what on this Great Lake?  Hot on the heels of this, CY Media will release the all-new, much anticipated PORTS Guide for Lake Ontario & the 1000 Islands.  It will be ready for you to purchase at the Toronto International Boat Show first!

We also welcome Jeff Butler of Plugboats, regular Guest Writer Katherine Stone and of course, the Port Hole by CPS is in this edition.

Enjoy the February Boat Show Issue of Canada’s Boating Magazine and be sure to stop by our booth at the Toronto International Boat Show.  We love to meet our readers!

Neptunus 650F

By Andy Adams

Over the years Canadian Yachting has had the pleasure of doing several boat review articles on new Neptunus models and we are familiar with the qualities that Neptunus is famous for. They have all been exceptional yachts, but this is the one I would most want to own myself. It’s a personal choice and a matter of taste as to whether you would prefer to have a sedan express model or a flybridge but in my opinion, the flybridge layout offers some wonderful attributes.

We met with Neptunus Managing Director Jan Willem De Jong this past fall to take the new Neptunus 650F out in Lake Ontario.

Sunset off St. John

By Mark Stevens

I was first seduced by the United States Virgin Islands during a ferry ride from St. Thomas to Tortola to begin one of our earliest British Virgin Islands charters nearly twenty years ago.

A perfect sunset off St. John with St. Thomas views for backdrop.

Clearing Pillsbury Sound, surrounded by voluptuous emerald mountains as the ferry sliced through royal blue waters, I was struck by the unspoiled ambiance of St. John, the island gliding past our starboard beam and the irresistible charm of a village called Cruz Bay visible from our quarter stern.

Svala at Anchor

Story and photos by Matt Bera

We settled Svala into what my family and I had come to think of as the most desirable anchorage on Lake Ontario, on a sunny summer afternoon. With an abandoned settlement, an old schoolhouse full of swallows, giant snakes and a rum-running past, Main Duck Island had it all.

That we had to sail past the Psyche Shoal, a magnetic disturbance, and into the middle of the rumoured Marysburgh Vortex made an even better sea story. It had taken us two attempts, two years, two boats and a new sort-of experimental engine to get there.

Sailing With a Captain

By Zuzana Prochazka

Never chartered? No problem. Here’s how to plan, execute and enjoy a vacation on a charter yacht where life is easy and the sunsets can’t be beat.

Decide on a crewed or bareboat charter

A crewed charter means you have a captain who manages the boat and maybe a chef or mate as well. Crewed charters ensure a safe and comfortable vacation with most everything done for you. The chefs are usually outstanding so if you’re a foodie, you’ll be in heaven and you may be able to pick up new recipes too. Larger crewed yachts may also have a mate who works with the captain and will do things like getting toys (kayaks, SUPs, snorkel gear, etc.) ready for you to use so you do very little work.

Mercury marine V10 OutboardsOn November 15th 2022, Mercury Marine, a division of Brunswick Corporation (NYSE: BC), introduced the industry’s first ever V10 outboard with the official launch of its all-new 5.7L 350 and 400hp Verado® outboard engines.
Consistent with the award-winning Verado brand, the new V10 engines are the quietest and smoothest in their class running 45 percent quieter than a leading competitor at cruise. In addition to NVH, the new Verado’s are not only compatible with the latest Mercury SmartCraft® technologies but will also be offered with an optional dual-mode 48V/12V alternator to seamlessly pair with Navico Group’s Fathom® e-power system, an integrated lithium-ion auxiliary power management system, providing boaters the opportunity to eliminate an onboard generator system.
