Sea Ray L650 Fly a real show stopper

Aug 23, 2017

The West Coast Premiere of the exquisite Sea Ray L650 Fly was certainly a night to remember. Guests arriving by car to picturesque Coal Harbour Marina were treated to valet service. A grand balloon arch at the top of the marina ramp marked the entrance for VIP guests. The evening’s theme, en blanc, was brought to life as a spectacular vision in white,the dock was set up with elegant white canopies accented with a red carpet and featuring an intricately carved ice sculpture of the star of the evening: the L650 Fly, bathed in blue and white light. As white-attired guests drifted among the canopies, they were greeted with the fragrance of white flowers and the bright tones of live music. Guests were treated to an array of fine hors d’oeuvres and refreshments. 

Of course, atmosphere aside, the real show stopper at this VIP event was the L650 Fly. All in attendance agreed that Sea Ray has truly redefined Luxury on the Water with this spectacular yacht, the ultimate combination of form and function. The lines and true beauty of this L650 Fly set this L-Class Yacht above all others. After an introduction by M&P Yacht Centre President, Bob Pappajohn, guests were invited to explore this magnificent yacht at their leisure. At the end of the night, guests received monogrammed M&P Yacht Centre chocolates by Thomas Haas and a lovely black leather-bound L-Class book.

Neptunus 650F Review

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.
