PURE ELEGANCE
The Dufour design is a balance between sensitive, sophisticated and precise touches. An integral part of our own identity, it is this subtle harmony that makes Dufour sailboats so unique.

Majestically elegant, merging contemporary and timeless style, the Dufour 460 embodies all the beauty of the Dufour signature.

It’s an authentic pure-blood in both aesthetics and performance with its hull line and pronounced bilges. Both rounded and fluid, the deck shapes leave room for a huge cockpit and wide side decks for optimum movement.

Inside, a vast lounge with front galley gives it a yacht feel.

The Dufour 460 is the gold standard and sure to become legendary.

HIGHLIGHTS

New Boats: Beneteau Oceanis 34.1 – A Sleek, Good -Looking Delight To Sail

By Katherine Stone

There is nothing more that I enjoy than being with friends and messing about in boats. Messing about in brand-new boats on a champagne sailing day on Lake Ontario at the beginning of the summer doesn’t get any better. To have the new owner, Helmuth Strobel and Anchor Yachts dealer Pancho Jimenez aboard made it even more special, as they can also speak to what they truly enjoy about the boat. We keep our own boat in a harbour that has a long waiting list for boats over 35 feet, so this little gem would definitely fit the bill and feels like a much bigger boat. True to the spirit of the 7th generation Oceanis line, the 34.1 is built in Poland and replaces the 35.1. It is 1,000 lbs lighter, 14 cm narrower and has 29% more sail area.

Destinations

Telegraph Cove—from Resource Community to Tourist Delight

Text and photos by Marianne Scott

Telegraph Cove is a small indent situated on Johnstone Strait in the Salish Sea, 15nm southeast of Port McNeill and near Robson Bight, famous for its orca-rubbing beaches. The village has experienced many iterations with a long history—the harbour once served as a summer camp for the Kwakwaka’wakw who fished and hunted here beginning about 8,000 years ago. Many of their descendants still live in the area.

It’s a hopping place in the summer—winter only caretakers remain on site.
