Sea Ray L650 Fly a real show stopper

Aug 23, 2017

The West Coast Premiere of the exquisite Sea Ray L650 Fly was certainly a night to remember. Guests arriving by car to picturesque Coal Harbour Marina were treated to valet service. A grand balloon arch at the top of the marina ramp marked the entrance for VIP guests. The evening’s theme, en blanc, was brought to life as a spectacular vision in white,the dock was set up with elegant white canopies accented with a red carpet and featuring an intricately carved ice sculpture of the star of the evening: the L650 Fly, bathed in blue and white light. As white-attired guests drifted among the canopies, they were greeted with the fragrance of white flowers and the bright tones of live music. Guests were treated to an array of fine hors d’oeuvres and refreshments. 

Of course, atmosphere aside, the real show stopper at this VIP event was the L650 Fly. All in attendance agreed that Sea Ray has truly redefined Luxury on the Water with this spectacular yacht, the ultimate combination of form and function. The lines and true beauty of this L650 Fly set this L-Class Yacht above all others. After an introduction by M&P Yacht Centre President, Bob Pappajohn, guests were invited to explore this magnificent yacht at their leisure. At the end of the night, guests received monogrammed M&P Yacht Centre chocolates by Thomas Haas and a lovely black leather-bound L-Class book.

Throw away the box, this is some fresh thinking

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.
