Monterey Boats Announces New Build-a-boat Program Enhancement

Monterey Boats

Monterey Boats would like to introduce the newest addition to the Monterey Boats website-an enhanced build-a-boat
program. The newly re-designed build-a-boat feature will give customers the ability to create, customize and design
their perfect Monterey.

Featuring vivid imagery, an enhanced hull colour/graphic configurator, and an easier to use, more informative engine selector, the new program has been designed to create that “on the water” dream from virtually anywhere. With the enhancement of this new build-a-boat program, the configurations are limitless.

“This new program features a user friendly design, and a vast array of options; it is our hope this new tool will provide a way for our customers to experience Monterey at an entirely new level,” said Kim Loenichen, Director of Sales at Monterey Boats.

Visit or go to, select the model of your choice, and select build and price. You’ll be immediately directed to the new program where you can navigate through, choosing from every possible colour combination, graphic option, engine choice, and optional feature available.
And when the perfect Monterey Boat has been created? In a few clicks you will be able to continue on to either print or email your “Perfect Monterey” to yourself, or you will have the option of sending your custom designed Monterey boat to the dealer of their choice.

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.
