Featured Boat: Angelina II

Angelina II can sometimes be a little inconspicuous, due to her habit of hanging out with the "big boys" in our fleet, but all that's about to change (sorry, Angelina II but the spotlight's on you)!
When choosing the perfect yacht for your charter this Summer; the perfect yacht is the one that suits your needs perfectly. Angelina II has got you covered!
With two large and spacious staterooms, Angelina II can sleep four to six. Most boats sleeping four to six fall into the 30' - 38' range; not so with this boat! She is a whopping 41' of space, comfort and luxury. Why squeeze around the settee at dinner time when you don't have to?
Angelina II is priced competitively and the cost of a week on board is comparable to the 37' boats in our fleet.
With an in-furling main and cruising chute, these sails are in awesome condition and can keep you sailing in every condition. No need for the Yanmar 40 motor...
If the weather's bad (is the weather ever bad in B.C.?), you've got the luxury of a dodger and bimini on your boat.
Our staff are waiting to assist you with booking Angelina II for your vacation this Summer. Give us a call today!

Latest addition to the IC fleet: Shoto (Sabre 362)

Sabres are among the finest production yachts on the market. Shoto is a true performance cruiser, combining speed with ease of handling and superb sea-keeping qualities; equally at home gunk holing the bays or challenging the open ocean.

The name SHOTO (Shōtō) in Japanese means "pine-waves", and describes the graceful movement of pine needles when the wind blows through them. Shoto is also the name given to one of the two traditional samurai swords. These two ideas strongly convey the sense of the Sabre sailing the pine rimmed waves and waters of the Pacific North West.

Quick notes:
