Profile: Mahone Marine

Mahone Marine Team

 

Jan 26m 2016

After a 22 year career as a yacht professional, culminating with a tint as skipper of a 140ft super yacht in the Caribbean and the Mediterranean, Zack Green decided it was time to return to his roots on the shores of Nova Scotia’s beautiful Mahone bay. With a young family Zack and his wife Jennifer realised a seagoing job was no longer viable option. Their original idea was for a kind of semi-retirement, buying and selling used boats, but what started with a cleared patch of land on the side of highway 103 near the Mahone Bay exit, has grown into a full service marine operation. Mahone Marine’s staff, including Zack’s wife Jennifer, provide customers with new and used boats sales as well as mechanical services and storage.

Mahone Marine has gone for quality in the new products it carries. The company is the exclusive Atlantic Canada dealer for Edgewater Boats and also carries well-known brands such as Robalo, Chaparral and Polar Craft boats. As a Yamaha and Mercury Mercruiser parts and service dealer Mahone Marine employs 4 service technicians with training from Yamaha, Mercury, Honda and Evinrude.  A new computer software program streamlines purchasing and inventory control.

 Mahone Marine’s 16 acre high visibility location allows plenty of room for winter storage and the display of both new and used boats.

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.
