Cruisers Cantius 54 Sneak Peek

Cruisers Cantius 54

June 19, 2016

This was our first look at the brand-new Cruisers Yachts Cantius 54 as the delivery crew carefully approached the locks at Buckhorn, Ontario.

The brand-new Cruisers Yachts Cantius 54 is heavily protected by fenders as the delivery crew guides it out of Lock 31 at Buckhorn, Ontario on their way down the Trent Severn Waterway to the lucky new owner who was waiting in the Thousand Islands. This is the latest in the Cantius line of express cruisers by Cruisers Yachts and it’s the first 54 to be delivered in Canada. The twin Volvo Penta IPS 950 engines delivered an impressive top speed and surprising acceleration, especially considering the rich inventory of standard equipment. The test boat had a hydraulic swim platform, four different refrigerator and freezer drawers in the spacious galley, a full beam master stateroom with en suite head, a forward guest stateroom room with a second head arrangement including a separate shower stall compartment and there was also a mid-cabin with twin berths.

New Boats: Beneteau Oceanis 34.1 – A Sleek, Good -Looking Delight To Sail

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.
