A Brand New Coastal Craft is On Its Way

New Coastal Craft 3


December 21, 2015

Coastal Craft is scheduled to launch the second 65’ Concord in early January. This yacht is destined for Maine sometime before the summer of 2016. Every 65’ Concord is a special build but this one has a few extras that go above and beyond the usual techie features and high quality. One of the owner’s requires the use of a wheelchair for mobility therefore the yacht is equipped with both an internal elevator that calls upon all three decks including the newly designed enclosed Fly Bridge or Sky Lounge. In addition to the Sky Lounge and elevator, the yacht is equipped with two wheelchair boarding platforms that allow for wheelchair boarding through both Port and Starboard side gates into the cockpit deck area. The yacht still features three spacious staterooms and heads and an impressive main salon with side helm door (another new feature for this build).

Right behind the second 65’ launch is the third 65’ scheduled for launching in May 2016. This yacht is equipped with the same layout and features as hull #1 which has been so well received by many at boat shows and by editors and writers of boating magazines since early 2014. This vessel will be offered for sale so for those that would like input on the finishing choices now is the time to inquire on how you can finish this lovely yacht out to suit your style and needs.

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.
