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!

While Canadians may have been slower to warm to pontoon boats than our southern neighbours, that’s definitely changed as we see more of them gracing our waters every year. The latest data shows pontoon boats now represent around 30% of all new boats sold in Canada and it’s easy to understand why – with their interior space and tremendous versatility, pontoons are near-perfect family runabouts.

Cruising Georgian Bay’s 30,000 Islands: Canada’s Freshwater Paradise for Boaters

The Plan

It’s a beautiful morning as we perform our pre-departure checklist, fire up the engines and prepare to release our lines. And if the long-range forecast of very low winds coupled with plenty of sunshine holds, that’s exactly what we need for the areas we plan to explore on this trip! 

We are departing Midland for a week of visiting some of the islands and anchorages within Georgian Bay’s “30,000 Islands” – specifically those along the western edge. These are the less protected islands which face toward wide-open Georgian Bay, where boaters often have to depart the small craft route and work a little harder at setting the hook but are then rewarded with magnificent western views, stunning sunsets, and so much to explore!
