Fractional Yacht ProgramThere is no question that having a new yacht can be very rewarding, however, the costs and responsibilities of operating it can be overwhelming. Based in Toronto and servicing the Great Lakes area, YACHT Solutions now makes the Schaefer yacht products readily available to clients. Backed with a full yacht management program, they are introducing a revolutionary way to purchase this type of luxury yacht.

"It's the ultimate try it before you buy it program available," says founder Greg Marlo. “Imagine going to a luxury car dealership and asking if you can test drive one of their nicest cars for two to three months, in order to make an intelligent buying decision.” Unlikely…

Over a 28-year span, Schaefer Yachts has produced more than 3,700 boats between 26 and 83 feet, while setting a new standard of quality and innovation in the marine industry. Schaefer Yachts impress at first glance, but are unique in the market combining comfort with high technology. They stand out for their beauty, workmanship, sophistication and high performance, distinguishing and distancing from their competitors.

Fractional Yacht ProgramA stunning example is the Schaefer 510 Sport Pininfarina. Starting with Schaefer’s years of quality craftsmanship and culminating with the impeccable design excellence of the world-renowned Pininfarina design team, the Schaefer 510 Sport Pininfarina boasts the tour de force of luxury and style. For 90 years now, the name ‘Pininfarina’ has stood for iconic Italian design, globally. Featuring a bold but elegant look with its aesthetically modernistic lines and the detailed attention given to the innovative and ergonomic use of space, the Schaefer 510 Sport Pininfarina redefines superiority. Combine these qualities with the performance initiated by the expert design of Schaefer’s naval engineering team, and you have the definition of a well-groomed thoroughbred. Nothing has been overlooked on the Schaefer 510 Sport Pininfarina, as it further demonstrates Schaefer Yachts ‘ commitment for perfection, bringing you the most exhilarating, enjoyable on-the-water experience in the world.

Fractional Yacht ProgramUtilizing YACHT Solutions convenient Fractional Yacht Program, the new boat buyer can now enjoy a purchase process with no compromises. Have a boat to sell, another to order? Yet you don’t want to miss any time on the water, as the lead time to build a yacht can be several months. YACHT Solutions provides a seamless step-by-step ownership process so that no time or resources are wasted, and the client will always have a boat available. There is a distinct advantage of having your new boat built with the exact options you want, perhaps even visiting the factory during the building process. Some could even consider doing a sea trial in beautiful Brazilian waters before it gets shipped back home. As a Schaefer Yacht Dealership, more flexibility in buying a boat is offered than ever before.

Fractional Yacht ProgramYACHT Solutions also offer an Intelligent Ownership program for their owners that generates revenue, not unlike the business jet industry or private yacht world, where owners look to offset costs when they are not using the aircraft or boat. An owner retains the majority of benefits of yacht ownership without the high cost, day-to-day responsibilities and complications. Late model yachts will be available in the Greater Toronto Area this summer. Ultimately, owners save valuable time and money, while eliminating risks and stress.

If an upgrade to your present yacht or if you are planning an entry into the yachting lifestyle, the Schaefer Yacht Solution program is almost certainly the best on the market. Here is the contact information to explore what is available.

X Shore Eelex 8000By Andy Adams

100% Electric performance available now

When we arranged to interview the designer and manufacturer to write a profile of the X Shore Eelex 8000 for the June 2021 issue of Canadian Yachting magazine, it was on the understanding that we always prefer to actually drive and experience the boats we write about, and we were especially keen to drive the X Shore when BCI Marine here in Canada, got their first boat from Sweden.

There has been a lot of media attention around everything electric lately, especially electric vehicles, but so far, most electric boats are a concept, not yet a reality. The X Shore Eelex 8000 is a reality and a very impressive one at that.

Neptunus 650EBy Andy Adams

Last August, we were again invited to the Neptunus Yachts facility in St. Catharines, Ontario to run and review their latest yacht, a 202650E at their marina by Lake Ontario. Keen readers of Canadian Yachting might recall reading about a Neptunus 650 back in 2016 and while this is the same proven hull, Neptunus is a custom builder and the 2022 650E here has a totally new interior design and layout.

Neptunus builds bespoke yachts. The reality is that no two Neptunus Yachts are the same. Each is individually tailored to its owners tastes and activities and is finished to their specifications.

Marianne ScottBy Marianne Scott

Instant towns have sprung up in the past, especially on the BC coast. In the late 1850s, Victoria grew overnight into a tent city when hordes of prospectors stopped by to provision for their quest to get rich in the Fraser goldfields. The tents were followed quickly by brick hotels, stores and brothels. Prince Rupert began as a tent town after it was chosen as the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway’s terminus, then built more permanent structures.

But no place went up overnight like Ladysmith, where coal baron James Dunsmuir moved his miners “stock, lock and barrel” after coal seams further north on Vancouver Island had been exhausted.

Marine SurveyingStory and photos by Timothy J.S. Martin

It seems like everyone has their “guy”, usually a marine surveyor they either know personally or have been referred to by another boater (or someone in the marine or insurance industries). Marine surveyors are often hired based on this type of referral, rather than on the merits of their qualifications and skills.

I often hear boaters express their displeasure about an experience where a marine surveyor “condemned” a boat, or the surveyor was viewed as unreasonable in relation to their recommendations. As a result, surveyors known to be less thorough and less detailed in their work tend to be favoured by boaters, especially for insurance surveys.
