Eight Bells: Annie Campbell CPYB, Well Respected Yacht Broker

Annie Campbell

May 9, 2019

It is with deep sadness, that North South Nautical Group announces the passing of one of our long time yacht brokers, Annie Campbell.

Annie, and her husband Fraser, joined the NSNG brokerage team not long after the company’s inception in 2008. They started with North South Nautical Group as customers. With the excitement of selling their trawler, combined with their passion for boating, Fraser and Annie decided to launch their second career in yacht sales.

An honest and hardworking team, they made many inroads into the Eastern Ontario boating market.  Both Annie and Fraser were among the first brokers in Canada to obtain their Certified Professional Yacht Broker accreditation.

Prior to joining the North South Nautical Group, Annie had a long career as a real estate agent, and was a successful potter with the Ottawa Potters Guild.

Annie will be deeply missed by all those who knew and worked with her.

A service was held in Ottawa. Donations in Annie’s name can be made and sent to the Ruddy-Shenkman Hospice in Kanata or the Ottawa Humane Society.

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.
