This equipment includes a Great Lakes 460 Inflatable Boat by Melocraft, completely rigged with Suzuki accessories and a Suzuki DF40ATL Ultimate Outboard ready for the water.

  • The boat and outboard package will be used in programs and events that are run by Able Sail in Toronto during the summer season 2024, 2025 and 2026.
  • This boat and outboard package will also be used to run Able Sail’s annual Mobility Cup events held in Nova Scotia in 2024 and Quebec in 2025.
