Greenline 40 making its debut at TIBS

The Toronto International Boat Show celebrates its 60th anniversary from January 12 -21, 2018 at the Enercare Centre. Since 1959, the Toronto Boat Show has grown exponentially to become North America’s largest indoor boat show featuring world class displays, 550 exhibitors and more than 1,200 boats from 6ft to 51ft for visitors to see and board. Visitors also can shop among thousands of marine accessories at the Mariners Marketplace and get summer-ready with outdoor gear, toys and décor at Cottage Country.

The Toronto Boat Show is a one-stop shop to see and buy all the latest boats, innovations and new products to hit the market. Exhibitor spaces are sold-out with all the major boat dealers from across Canada ready to showcase the latest boat innovations alongside manufacturer representatives who will be on hand to provide knowledgeable product information.

Cottage CountryOne of the must-sees is the first 2018 Greenline 40 Hybrid Yacht that will make its debut at the Toronto Boat Show. The yacht is good for the environment as it uses up to four times less fossil fuel than a planning powerboat in similar conditions. Not only does this innovation reduce fuel consumption, it also allows efficient electric propulsion using power supplied by the battery and solar power (Booth 156). Another new offering that is sure to appeal to boaters is the Dock Links Membership. With partner marinas from Lake Ontario through the TSW, into Georgian Bay and North Channel, members will receive 50% off transient rates, .05/L fuel discounts, parts discounts and free pump outs. With the NEW 2018 Dock Links Member Perks app, members have access to over 1500 discounts across Canada from the Coast to Coast! And membership is good for 365 days per year (Booth: C-506).

New this year, the Toronto Boat Show is offering a $5 after 5pm ticket (any day except VIP Preview Day) and free parking after 4pm on weekdays! A great value proposition to accommodate those who prefer to visit the show during the week after work and/or revisit multiple days to see, shop and compare from hundreds of new products and boats.

Sylvan’s brilliant G3 CLZ DC brings an entirely new level of performance, comfort and versatility to Canadian boaters.

By Craig Ritchie

While Canadians may have been slower to warm to pontoon boats than our southern neighbours, that’s definitely changed as we see more of them gracing our waters every year. 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!
