POTW: Tony Castro Dreamboat

POTW Dreamboat

May 23, 2024

Here’s a stunning Photo of the Week from Tony Castro. We think of Tony as an almost-Canadian. He was CS Yachts’ designer for years and spent a lot of time in Brampton – many of you likely still enjoy his CS 30, CS34 and others. That’s the Canadian angle but Tony was born in Portugal and today he is based in Hamble near Southampton UK where is studio creates renowned designs including some very sexy superyachts.

This design, named Perennial, is planned for 2026 and if your new boat budget is €65,000,000 or so she could be yours. The boat headlined this month’s Spring newsletter. The second picture illustrates the ‘beach club’ easily accessed from the lower deck cabins.

Your Photo of the Week.  Well, we are not expecting a million-euro superyacht, but perhaps some pets on board, kids on water toys or a beautiful port. The pHoto of the Week can be anything you like as long as you take the shiot from or around your boat.  Just send the pics along to onboard@kerrwil.com and please put POTW in the subject line.

The latest data shows pontoon boats now represent around 30% of all new boats sold in Canada and it’s easy to understand why – with their interior space and tremendous versatility, pontoons are near-perfect family runabouts.

Cruising Georgian Bay’s 30,000 Islands: Canada’s Freshwater Paradise for Boaters

The Plan

It’s a beautiful morning as we perform our pre-departure checklist, fire up the engines and prepare to release our lines. And if the long-range forecast of very low winds coupled with plenty of sunshine holds, that’s exactly what we need for the areas we plan to explore on this trip! 

We are departing Midland for a week of visiting some of the islands and anchorages within Georgian Bay’s “30,000 Islands” – specifically those along the western edge. These are the less protected islands which face toward wide-open Georgian Bay, where boaters often have to depart the small craft route and work a little harder at setting the hook but are then rewarded with magnificent western views, stunning sunsets, and so much to explore!
