Cruisers Yachts 54 Cantius – More Than The Sum Of Its Parts

CY 54

Nov 23, 2016

In the December issue of Canadian Yachting, we review the new Cruisers Yachts 54 Cantius. Cruisers Yachts first introduced their Cantius express cruiser designs several years ago, with the Cantius line now including 41, 45, 48, 54 and 60-foot models.

All are distinguished by their huge sunroof and glass aft bulkhead that gives one continuous floor level from the helm back to the transom for maximum living space and a layout that’s great for entertaining.

The heading on the article says the Cruisers Yachts 54 Cantius is more than the sum of its parts; read the review to understand what we meant – this yacht has a feeling that is hard to describe but easy to enjoy. It is a big boat with a lot of accommodation and a host of luxury features, but the way it opens up like a runabout and the way it performs with the twin Volvo Penta IPS 950 engines is unexpected but stellar!

Enjoy the full review and lots more great photos in our December issue. If you’re not getting yours, subscribe HERE!

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.
