Beneteau America announces the appointment of Castaways Yacht Club as their representative for Beneteau Powerboats in the Long Island Sound, Long Island and Northeastern New Jersey regions.

Situated in the sheltered New Rochelle Harbor, Castaways Yacht Club (CYC) is a full service facility and marina in its 50th year of operations, with a secondary sales office in Sag Harbor, NY. CYC has developed a reputable and customer-oriented organization that is also committed to navigation and seamanship proficiency, from yacht management and handling to the promotion of good fellowship between their members and the yachting community.

Justin Joyner, powerboat sales manager for Beneteau in North America acknowledged the successful start of CYC at the Fort Lauderdale boat show, with numerous boats on order including Beneteau’s flagship, the Monte Carlo 6. “Castaways Yacht Club represents exactly the type of partners that we are continuing to seek out in order to augment the current distribution network,” commented Joyner. “We are confident they will excel in their mission to connect customers looking for a world class production boat with Beneteau – a name already famous for its sailboat tradition and rich with 130 years of building boats.”

Castaways Yacht Club also expressed their enthusiasm over the new partnership. John Novak, CYC’s sales director noted: “Representing a prestigious product like Beneteau and having the support of a financially sound company who understands the needs of our customers is a unique chance. With Beneteau’s impressive portfolio of express cruisers, trawlers and flybridge motoryachts, we couldn’t be better equipped to meet our clients’ satisfaction – beyond their expectations, as always!”

Castaways Yacht Club will represent Beneteau Powerboats at this year’s Yachts Miami Beach boat show, February 11-15 2016 and take part in the debut events surrounding the launch of the Gran Turismo 40, Gran Turismo 46 and Swift Trawler 30.

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.

Telegraph Cove is a small indent situated on Johnstone Strait in the Salish Sea, 15nm southeast of Port McNeill and near Robson Bight, famous for its orca-rubbing beaches. The village has experienced many iterations with a long history—the harbour once served as a summer camp for the Kwakwaka’wakw who fished and hunted here beginning about 8,000 years ago. Many of their descendants still live in the area.

It’s a hopping place in the summer—winter only caretakers remain on site.
