Cutting-edge technology and effortless style were on display at Coal Harbour Marina, as M&P Yacht Centre hosted the debut of the West Coast’s first Boston Whaler 420 Outrage on Saturday, April 9th.

Guests witnessed the launch of the 420 Outrage on a gloriously sunny afternoon, and were also invited to view the West Coast-inspired Conquest Pilothouse series, including the 285, 315 and 345.

“Whaler has done it again!” said M&P Yacht Centre President, Bob Pappajohn. “We are thrilled to introduce Boston Whaler’s largest, most spectacular boat to our West Coast audience. The 420 Outrage is true comfort and luxury in an incredibly capable package.”

Since its initial release in Miami, Florida, the flagship 420 Outrage has garnered a great deal of attention, and was recently named Boating magazine’s 2015 Boat of the Year.

“The 420 Outrage marks a new chapter in the Boston Whaler legend,” said Boston Whaler President Huw Bower. “The level of sophistication, comfort, performance and capability is unparalleled—truly, this is a boat like no other.”

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.

Many of their descendants still live in the area.

It’s a hopping place in the summer—winter only caretakers remain on site.
