The TH36 outboard cat debuts in Cannes

The Four Winns TH36 Catamaran had its world premiere at the Cannes Yachting Festival, September 6-11. With its ability to comfortably accommodate up to 15 people for a day out on the water, the forward cockpit alone has enough seating for six. The open space deck is protected by a full beam hard top with the helm on the starboard side and double co-pilot bench on the portside. The galley, in the center of the deck layout, includes spacious storage, refrigerators, a sink, and an optional cooktop with barbecue.

The unique and versatile aft cockpit benches offer the flexibility to form a wide-open space. The large sunbeds can be open to the sea or connected for a cozy and relaxing social area creating the finest moments on the water with those you love.

Outfitted with the choice of either choice twin 300hp or 350hp Mercury engines, or twin 300hp Yamaha engines, both with joystick controls for easy maneuvering, the ride is smooth, sophisticated, and very efficient at any speed. The TH36 will offer many features to fit the needs of any boat owner inclusive of a full soft cockpit enclosure.

The TH36 makes full use of every inch beneath the deck with a generous amount of space. Contemporary elegance flows through two full suites furnished with full size berths, storage cabinets, privacy blinds, closet area, and private heads equipped with a separate, enclosed shower area. Ambient lighting installed overhead with elegant lines throughout the interior add to the comfort.

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.
