The West Bay SonShip 72

Sonship 72


West Bay SonShip is proud to announce a new member to the West Bay family, the all-new 72 Skylounge.

West Bay’s engineers and designers have used the proven 58-foot, hard-chine hull mold, buy widening it by 1.5 feet and lengthening  it by 14 feet. The decks, the house and sky lounge were redesigned with a more modern, stylish look, which incorporated gray-tinted frameless windows. The interior design was also customized to the owner’s preferences, which allowed for larger living spaces. The systems, equipment and performance exceeded expectations.

See website for our newly designed starting platforms of 54, 63, 72, 81 and 100’ yachts.

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.

Sunset off St John

By Mark Stevens

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.
