Lunenburg has long been a must visit destination for tourists and this includes visiting yachts from all over the world. However, until recently the harbour was not particularly yacht friendly,shore access was dominated by large wharves dedicated to commercial vessels. Things have been steadily improving over the last several years and there are now three designated areas for visiting yachts. The Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic is the preferred dock for large sail training vessels and super yachts. Here the museum visitor scan speculate which movie star or business mogul may be aboard. Just to the south is Zwicker’s Wharf where a designated dinghy dock serves the anchorage and moorings and some 300 feet of floating dock is provided, with electrical hook-up available. The Waterfront Development Corporation is undertaking re-decking on the wharf for the 2016. Down by the marine railways is the Marina Wharf which can accommodate boats to 45ft and has power, water, sewage pump-out and showers. Space is limited.

New Boats: Lilybaeum Yacht’s Luxurious Levanzo 25
New to Canada and available through Marine SCA, the recently established Lilybaeum Yacht, led by Giorgio Maggio and Vincenzo Marco Pecorella, both in their mid-twenties, are steering the company towards innovative waters with the introduction of their inaugural model – the Levanzo 25.
A Synthesis of Strength and Elegance
The Levanzo 25 blends a fisherman’s robustness with the grace and amenities of a compact yacht. With its high, flared bow, this 7.70 metres vessel promises not only a head-turning aesthetic but also a sturdy, reliable performance on the open sea. One of the standout features of this vessel is its deep “V” hull, boasting a 22-degree deadrise, designed to ensure a secure and dry journey, even when navigating through rough waters.
Serious Fun at the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta
By Allegra Smith-Herriott
As the plane started its descent, bright blue skies gave way to crystal clear turquoise waters as we skimmed over the famous Maho Beach. Exiting the airport, I was hit with a wall of warm salty air from the northeast trade winds. Nothing compares to arriving in the Caribbean.
From the airport, I headed to the Regatta Village in Port de Plaisance. Wednesday being ‘Day 0’ was registration day of the Regatta. Teams were out on the water to shake out sails, on the docks making last-minute preparations and in the Regatta Village for registration and most importantly picking up their cases of Heineken.
