HIGHLIGHTS
The Dufour 61 offers two different galley layouts, while maintaining spacious living space and enjoying plenty of natural day light. The layout with forward galley interconnects the different living spaces. The longitudinal port galley integrates very smart fittings and gives the feeling of being in a Chef’s kitchen… This layout creates room for a large warm saloon.

The master cabin, as spacious as it is luxurious, offers privileged private space for relaxation on the boat. You will appreciate the large wardrobe and numerous cupboards for infinite possibilities of storage.

FAMILY FEELING
The construction and layout of the deck have been devised to guarantee the boat’s robustness and safety on board, along with comfort on deck. The bulwark is directly integrated in the boat’s hull. And the coach roof has been designed to leave room for a broad foredeck enhancing both style and comfort.

GUARANTEED SENSATIONS
The deck layout has been designed to facilitate every manoeuvre, thereby enhancing your sailing experience. Large windows and portholes provide natural light and the signature of our new Dufour line.

The Dufour 61’s design and layout offer great circulation on deck thanks to its cockpit and bimini top specially designed for this purpose: a perfect blend of performance and comfort.

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.

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.
