Marlow Hunter 37

By John Kerr

From the first glance the wide open decks large cockpit and overall look and feel of this boat are pleasing. It’s well laid out and from the helm its great visibility and ease of moving forward on deck are well done.

The MH 37 is built in the US and the sibling of 66 different models that have gone before boasting the classic Hunter arch is there as well, perfect for a Bimini install. The layout allows an easy sail whether you are single handing or as a couple with controls, jib sheets, and halyards are all conveniently accessed from the cockpit or helm position. Her larger main and smaller headsail combination coupled with a hard chine in the hull shape does not compromise performance from functionality resulting in a strong and stable rig and stability under power.

The added benefit is more interior volume boasting a large galley with larger than one would expect Corian countertops and wonderful storage. The main salon is wide and open and has a convertible dinette, choice of cherry or teak interior, and the familiar convertible dinette. The spacious fore cabin has a queen size bed and en suite head with separate show stall.

The new hull and deck of the 37 follow the same design lines as the new Hunter 40 that was launched at the same show last year.

A galley almost identical in size to the Hunter 40, a forward facing nav station, an extremely large main salon area, and a very generous fore cabin arrangement.

Jeanneau Yachts 55

Throw away the box, this is some fresh thinking

Seemingly part sailboat and part spaceship, the new Jeanneau Yachts 55 just busted through the boundaries of traditional yacht design. I couldn’t take my eyes off the bubble hardtop that met me at the dock and I stepped aboard with trepidation. A few hours later, I was planning how to spend my not-yet-won lottery winnings.

Paving the Way to Cleaner Boating – How a Commitment to Reducing our Environmental Impact is Inspiring Cleaner Boating in Ontario

By Dave Rozycki

Over the past seven decades, Ontario’s marina industry has developed alongside some of Canada’s largest freshwater lakes. Boaters have been able to enjoy the beautiful scenery and create lasting memories on the water, with certain marinas dating back to the 1960s. As we reflect on this rich history, we can begin to see trends in how our footprint may have had an effect on the environment, in not-so-positive ways. However, by embracing innovative solutions and adopting sustainable practices, both marinas and boaters hold the key to preserving and enhancing the quality of our lakes and marine life for generations to come.
