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.”

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!
