VIBS Contest John Ferris of New Westminster “took home” a 50’ marina slip from this year’s Vancouver International Boat Show. The one-year lease was his prize in a draw held by exhibitor Blue Heron Marina Estates, a new condominium and marina development on the main arm of the Fraser River in East Richmond.

Phase one of the development includes nine townhouse units with docks for owners, while phase two will see construction of the adjacent 38-slip Palmer Yachts Marina. Full yacht servicing, maintenance and repairs will be available, and the nearby Palmer Yachts shipyard will offer travel lift service and repairs.
