CY inspects new Beneteau models

Beneteau Antares 27

Sept 13, 2018

The new Beneteau Antares 27 is an innovative and impressive new family cruiser with tremendous performance, but a surprisingly reasonable price tag.

The CY team was in Newport to see the new Antares line at 21, 23 and 27 feet. The builder also introduced a new Oceanis 46.1 and they presented their 51.1.

For the first time in the US, Beneteau is bringing its historic range: Antares. The Antares 21, 23 and 27 outboards are the new generation of coastal cruising boats. Designed entirely by the Beneteau design team, the Antares 21, 23 and 27 reinforce the brand’s specialized expertise in the pocket cruise market, ingeniously combining tradition and innovation.

Paving the Way to Cleaner Boating – How a Commitment to Reducing our Environmental Impact is Inspiring Cleaner Boating in Ontario

By Dave Rozycki

Over the past seven decades, Ontario’s marina industry has developed alongside some of Canada’s largest freshwater lakes. Boaters have been able to enjoy the beautiful scenery and create lasting memories on the water, with certain marinas dating back to the 1960s. As we reflect on this rich history, we can begin to see trends in how our footprint may have had an effect on the environment, in not-so-positive ways. However, by embracing innovative solutions and adopting sustainable practices, both marinas and boaters hold the key to preserving and enhancing the quality of our lakes and marine life for generations to come.
