CY at the Toronto International Boat Show

Galley Guys

Jan 10, 2016

Canadian Yachting‘s Galley Guys will be at TIBS in their starring roles.

It’s a wonderful January tradition. We pack up our snappy booth, magazines, cameras and logo’d shirts then head down to the show. It’s called work for us, but mostly it’s an excuse to get away from the screen, hang out with real people and shoot the breeze about boating. Let’s face it, that’s at least the secondary purpose (the first being seeing the next boat) for most visitors to TIBS.

Drop by and say Ahoy. We’re at booth # 1720 and we look forward to seeing you.

The Canadian Yachting video studio at previous Toronto International Boat Shows was always busy but new plans are afoot for 2017.

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.
