Flagship Lagoon 62 Marks 100th Launch

100th Lagoon
Mar 21, 2016

On 25 February, the 100th Lagoon 620 left the shipyard with great ceremony. All those who contributed to the construction and success of this magnificent catamaran were present for this event. 
 
In fact, the sale of 100 boats in the over 60-foot segment is quite a rare event. But in the multihull world, it’s a real success. The Lagoon teams therefore immortalised the moment with a “family” photo.
 
As a reminder, the 620 was launched in 2009 as the flagship of the range. In 2012, the firm Nauta Design reinvented the interiors of this large catamaran to offer more comfort, space and brightness.
In a little over 5 years, the 620’s success has not diminished. This model is sailing around the world, on every ocean, and we are happy to celebrate it today.
 
In a few weeks, 620 No. 100 will go to sea on a cargo vessel, heading for Port Kelang in Malaysia, where its new owner awaits her. Like many other 620s, combining performance and comfort, this boat is intended for bluewater cruising with a splendid programme between Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines.

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.
