Boats: Beneteau Flyer 9 Sundeck

Beneteau Flyer 9 Sundeck

Nov 23, 2023

RCR’s broker, Corbo Corbishley, had a demo Beneteau Flyer 9 Sundeck for several weeks early this summer and had the opportunity to run the boat on several occasions in varied conditions. Here are his thoughts on this comfortable, outboard-powered, innovative boat from Beneteau.

Overall Impression: “This boat checks a LOT of boxes!”

Favorite Features:

#1. Performance: “The two 250 hp Mercury Verados can push this boat quickly up to 50+ knots. The ride feels solid, like a much larger boat. The engines are very quiet. Maneuvering around the marina and docking is a breeze with the twin throttle/shifters and bow thruster for fine tuning.”

#2. Spacious Interior: “There are two sleeping areas below large enough for two adults in each, an enclosed head, and a galley with a microwave oven. More than enough to make it a comfortable weekender.”

#3. Loaded with Features: “To name a few of my favorites, in no particular order: the opening side platform that allows you enlarge the cockpit; 8000 BTU A/C; upgraded Fusion Sound System with six speakers and Sub-Woofer powered by a 600W amp; 12″ Garmin MFD; sturdy SS Water Ski mast/tow bar; bimini and more.

#4. The Sundeck: “A huge sunpad forward can accommodate three sunbathers and the aft bench seat folds down making another large area for sun worshipers.”

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—from Resource Community to Tourist Delight

Text and photos by Marianne Scott

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.
