Port Credit In-Water Show starts tomorrow

Port Credit In Water

Aug 23, 2017

This year’s 27th Port Credit In-Water Boat Show, hosted by Port Credit Harbour Marina and Bristol Marine and running August 25 – 27, is sure to draw boaters and would-b boaters to Port Credit’s beautiful waterfront.

As always, there will be a lot of great brand new and pre-owned boats to view, which makes the show attractive to end of the season boat shoppers.

This year, the Boat Show will showcase a special boat for those interested in an environmentally option – the Greenline 33. The Greenline is a hybrid yacht option that Georgian Harbour Yacht Sales is presenting at the show.

New show manager Tracy Parsons has an exciting direction and vision for the show. “We want there to be more of a family focus, to have visitors come view the products but also enjoy their time on the waterfront with their families,” she said.

The show will include food trucks, retailers, public speakers, a beer tent and much more. There will also be a boat simulator.

With over 20 exhibitors and a weekend on the waterfront, there is something for everyone at this year’s boat show.

Cobra Mask, a Toronto-based company specializing in providing the best snorkel gear on the market, will be on hand. They are a proudly Canadian Company and family-operated.

“Many boaters have multiple interests, which include snorkeling, diving and swimming. Cobra Mask has provided a great solution for those sports,” said Tracy.

Solorock, a Mississauga-based company, offers folding bikes which can easily collapse and be stored on a sailboat for easy land travel once docked on a summer vacation.

After a day of boat viewing, family fun and good eats, visitors may well want to stop by the beer tent where Port Credit Social House will be proudly pouring cold brew all day long.

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.
