Cruiser 52

May 24, 2016

With the launch of new 2017 yacht, Cruisers re-enters flybridge segment.

Cruisers Yachts, a brand of KCS International, Inc., announces the 60 Flybridge, featuring enhanced views and more living space. The 2017 model year 60 Flybridge will be unveiled this summer and available at dealerships in the fall.

“The launch of the 60 Flybridge is exciting for us as we once again enter the flybridge segment of the market,” says Matt VanGrunsven, director of marketing at KCS International, Inc. “We are excited to bring this new segment to our customers and dealer network.”

The 60 Flybridge promises more views, more sun, and more of what boaters love about being on the water. It’s another level of entertaining that is more exposed and allows users to embrace nature’s elements while underway.

Flybridge
The flybridge is equipped with a centerline helm station with seating for captain and mate, additional lounge seating forward and U-shaped seating with a table at the aft. The bridge also has a wetbar area. The profile retains its sleek exterior lines and aggressive stance.

Main Deck
The interior features light/dark wood combinations, contrasting materials, and a linear look. In addition to the flybridge, there is no shortage of places to entertain. The cockpit features a large seating area and bar with two stools at the cockpit. A refrigerator, icemaker and grill come standard. Above, a sunshade awning provides protection when needed.

Entertainment is also made seamless – with the cockpit, galley, salon, and helm all on one level. Guests can move easily from outside to inside through the open bulkhead where they are greeted by a portside galley at the center of entertaining. The galley features a refrigerator with freezer, full sink, stovetop, microwave and storage. A dishwasher is optional.

Facing the galley, on the starboard side, is the upper salon. A sofa with seating for three is flanked by end tables with plentiful storage. A 50” flat-screen TV raises when in use and conceals when not. A state-of-the-art sound bar is above. The TV is in easy view of a portside U-shaped dining area. With seating for up to six adults, it’s perfect for dining or cocktails. A hi-lo table serves as a dining table, cocktail table or coffee table. The entire space is open, airy and light-filled thanks to operable windows on each side. A seamless windshield up front completes the 360-degree picturesque views.

Moving to the helm station, the captain and first mate will enjoy STIDD brand chairs. Each features their own arm rests and flip up bolsters. Also at the helm, boaters will find the latest in electronic navigation. Touchscreen technology on electronic monitors easily controls both navigation and digital switching. Electrical systems can also be controlled and monitored by iPad, iPhone and even remotely.

Other technical advancements on board include Bluetooth controlled stereos, Polk audio and three sound bars throughout. Head units are standard in the upper salon and Master stateroom and are optional for the foredeck and secondary stateroom. All music and movies are streamed digitally; there are no CD or DVD players on board.

Moving to the bow, the foredeck is an ideal space for sunning, lounging and entertaining. The foredeck is accessed from the stairs in the cockpit, which lead to port and starboard sidewalks. Bench seating with cup holders can be found at the brow of the foredeck. There are two sun lounge areas with cup holders, a cooler and cocktail table. An optional Bimini awning provides shade when needed.

Finally, the swim platform can be raised with a hydraulic lift to haul a jet ski, tender, or dingy. There is also an optional crew’s quarters available.

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.
