Boldt Castle Yacht House – Gananoque, Ontario, Thousand Islands

Boldt Castle Yacht House

By Andy Adams

When we stayed at the Gananoque Inn & Spa in Gananoque, Ontario, we could easily walk to the Thousand Islands Cruise Line docks to take the trip through the islands, stopping at Boldt Castle and then taking the side trip to the amazing Boldt Castle Yacht House.

The Yacht House is spectacular and in excellent shape too. It was designed to take a large sailboat right inside, mast and sails up!

If you like castles and the grandeur of the early Thousand Islands lifestyle, check out Singer Castle as well. It’s east near Alexandria Bay.

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.
