New to Canada – Parker Monaco

June 11, 2020

Monaco 110 – fast pleasure cruiser with outboard motor and two cabins.

A new class for this new Parker Monaco range, the first 37-foot outboard cruiser in the new Parker range was designed by Tony Castro Yacht Design. This latest generation cruiser equipped with Yamaha outboard engines offers exceptional performance and an unrivalled weight / power ratio!

A generous amount of living space

The Monaco cabin offers ample space, plenty of seating, and a well-equipped kitchen. A door to the cockpit provides additional access to the freeboard and a large sliding glass sunroof creates a light and airy atmosphere. The spacious bathroom with shower offers a light and airy space for a 37-foot boat. The Monaco is a comfortable pleasure cruiser, its well-designed cabins are spacious, and their finish is magnificent.

Parker Monaco SundeckThe Parker Monaco is fitted with a convertible sundeck at the rear, mounted on a slide and which covers the motors. It is then possible to move it as desired, depending on whether the engines are raised or lowered, which provides both a large living space and exceptional soundproofing, significantly reducing the noise level in the cockpit.
It also has a triple wide sundeck at the front, with two reclining side spaces, built-in cup holders and practical handles for stability when traveling.

Neptunus 650F 400

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.

The Other Virgin Islands

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.
