CabinThe range’s first model, the Axopar 45 XC Cross Cabin, hit the aqua waters on Wednesday, April 27th, at Port Calanova, Mallorca.

The innovative Axopar 45 is not your typical recreational boat and is unlike anything previously launched by the company or its competitors. With a completely new multifunctional and modular concept for a boat in this size, the Axopar 45 is setting a new genre for fast commuting – in abundant comfort and style. The first 45 ft. walk-around boat, equipped with a fully enclosed cabin and outboard engines, enables owners to speed from jetty to open water in a flash.

The new flagship series will undoubtedly attract boat enthusiasts seeking to simplify their life through “rightsizing”. Predicting a shift in the future of boating where “rightsizing” will become more evident in the buying decision, the new range provides an excellent alternative to bigger and more expensive yachts as the 45 range boasts a yacht’s luxuries and handling without the price tag or maintenance commitment.

The EnginesPowered by triple Mercury V8 300 Verado engines, the Axopar 45 can cruise at speeds between 19 and 35 knots while remaining in the most cost-effective range. The boat is one of the most economical 45-footers on the market.

From an Intelligent Steering Module that controls the bow thruster, trim tabs, and audio, to innovative Simrad navigational touchscreen displays with a custom built Axopar User Interface, the boat is fitted with impressive technological features to ensure the best-in-class manoeuvrability and handling. These integrated functions make the cockpit remarkably clean and leave the dashboard neat and clutter-free. Another significant point of distinction is the technology used to manufacture hull, deck, and stringer systems. The advanced infusion lamination method results in a lighter and more fuel-efficient boat.

PortsideStandard features on the Axopar 45 XC Cross Cabin include features such as the gullwing doors that forge a seamless connection with the outdoors and an adjustable wet bar and table in the cabin for more flexible use of space. Owners can open the dual electric sliding canvas roofs and double sliding doors to let in the sea breeze and sun’s warming rays. Alternatively, they can close the doors and roofs to relax in the shade, instantly protected from the elements.

Cross Cabin InteriorThe midship balconies are conducive for getting on and off the boat with ease, create more space, and can transform into combination of the cabin and balconies make the 45 XC one of the most multifunctional and sociable boats on the market.

Optional features do even more to create an unrivalled experience for owners seeking adventurous recreation and excellent comfort. The cabin’s wet bar with fridge, sink, storage compartment and optional cooktop are conducive for lingering lunches and sunset aperitivos, while the electric foldable front windlass ensures the deck has a sleek and uncluttered look. Thanks to a panoramic window, those who opt for an aft cabin wake up to postcard views. They can also benefit from a wardrobe or optional second toilet. Finally, the optional Gyro stabilizer will reduce the rolling motion of the boat, significantly improving comfort onboard, and the optional zero emission power bank will enable wider use of electronics.

Oakley 245 CCBy Andy Adams

The multi-generational island cottagers of Georgian Bay and serious fishermen are just two of the groups most attracted to the new Oakley Boats models.

Brad Oakley has been around the boat business his entire life and he said to me that he has long admired durable, seaworthy welded aluminum boats. His company WMW Vacuum Pumpout Systems in Waubaushene, Ontario on Georgian Bay, builds highly regarded vacuum pump-out systems and Oakley’s equipment is in so many marinas that he knows a lot of people in the business.

Fountaine Pajot Astrea 42By Katherine Stone

On a beautiful summer morning in July, I hopped aboard a new-owner delivery from the Outer Harbour Marina in Toronto to the Port Credit Harbour Marina in Mississauga, with the President of Navy Point Yacht Sales, Steve McPherson. I don’t know if I have ever referred to a boat as pretty, but this adjective fits the Fountaine Pajot Astrea 42 to a tee.

The transitions and communication from interior to exterior spaces are seamless and well-thought-out with functional ergonomics.

The Ottawa Flight LocksFollowing the War of 1812, a battle that Canada narrowly won against the United States, the boundaries of Upper Canada were held and the British army realized that the St. Lawrence River was no longer safe as a supply route. A more defensible route was needed to bring supplies from Montreal to Kingston and on into other Great Lakes settlements.

This new, more secure route revealed itself through the travel and trade of the Indigenous peoples. Surveyors learned that one of the Indigenous trade routes began at the mouth of the Cataraqui River in Kingston (Canada’s first national capital) and connected a series of lakes and rivers all the way through to where the Rideau River meets the Ottawa River in the heart of Bytown (known today as Canada’s national capital: the City of Ottawa).

High Aspect ClothOver the last decade, sailcloth weaving equipment has evolved and allowed the production of low crimp warp oriented woven cloth of medium to heavy weights. We have had light weight warp wovens of 200g/m2 (4oz) or lighter for much longer than that, but the finer denier weaves of light sailcloth allowed that with older looms and setups. Why is this important? This new loom technology is very important because it allows sailmakers to make better warp cut woven sails for boats 25-50’ long.

Let’s start by clarifying what a crosscut sail is. The crosscut panel layout aligns the fill (short) edge of the sailcloth roll with the leech edge of the sail. Most of the sail load goes from clew to head up the leech. Secondary sail loads go from corner to corner along the foot and luff edge.

Fuel EconomyI filled up last week at $1.90. Pundits are suggesting that prices will stay high throughout the summer. Radio and TV news have been flooded with ‘man on the street’ interviews that show the impact on the average driver. How will these prices affect the average boater this year? Will we see more hours spent on the docks and fewer on the water? Will fuel efficiency become a top-of –mind selling point? Will we see a shift toward electric marine engines?

Time will tell – but for the majority of us, we’ll need to weather the storm as best we can. There are a number of tips and tricks we can employ aboard to make the most of our boat’s fuel. BoatUS published an excellent article this week that I’ll break down...
