9th Annual Boat Show at The Creek: 17–20 Sept 2015

Boat Show At Creek

Following last year’s success, the annual Boat Show at The Creek will once again pair Western Canada’s Largest Floating Boat Show with the Big 10 yacht brokers and marine industry partners. 

Come visit 2,500 feet of dock space showcasing over 160 boats, including motor and sailing yachts, sport & fishing boats, cruisers, and personal water crafts of all shapes and sizes.  

You’ll find the latest models as well as previously owned models ready for new owners. You can also purchase marine electronics and accessories, and get the latest information on insurance and financing. Our show also includes 70 display booths, broker hospitality tents, and demo slips for sea trials.  

“Our boutique, end-of-season show provides serious buyers the opportunity to enhance their boating experience. British Columbia offers some of the best cruising in the world, and BSATC presents quality products and services that boaters have come to expect as well as more choices for improving their lifestyle on the water” says Donny Mekilok, General Manager of the Squamish Nation Marine Group, which owns and operates The Creek Marina, Boat Show at The Creek and other marine properties and services for the Squamish Nation.  

The Creek Marina is also home to the Spirit Trail Ocean Village – a unique float home community now in its third phase of development. Mekilok adds “In the relaxed atmosphere of our North Shore marina, Boat Show at The Creek attracts serious boaters as well as ‘floaters’ who want to own and sometimes downsize to waterfront living in a marina-side setting.  

With experts on hand to advise you on all the exciting aspects of yacht ownership, the show is a ‘must visit’ for buyers looking to purchase a yacht or considering a Custom Boat Shed or a Luxury Yacht Home.”  

Whether you are in the market for a new or previously owned sailing or power yacht, the latest in boat accessories and electronics, or you simply need to update your marine insurance policy, experts are on hand to answer questions and provide assistance. The tent-covered outdoor venue is designed for the boating enthusiast who wants the opportunity to personally engage with the brokers, vendors, and suppliers who make up the show.  

This year’s events include: free boating seminars, sea trials and demonstrations, and the largest selection of power and sail boats on display. The 9th annual show offers wonderful opportunities for you, your family, and your friends to relax and get out on the water.

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.
