A classic of the Pacific Northwest, much is written about Grand Banks, particularly the GB49. Cabaret’s devoted owners continuously invest in upgrades and maintenance, making her an exceptionally seaworthy classic. Her dedicated fans return year-over-year to comfortably cruise in style throughout the region because there is no-where this dependable motoryacht can’t go. 

She cruises gracefully at 10 knots, displaying the passage making form of a small ship. Her 60,000 lb displacement creates a solid sense of safety when in turbulent seas and a comfortable movement at anchor. Bow and stern thrusters and twin Caterpillar 3208 engines provide everything you need to manage this vessel in close quarters. A full suite of navigation instrumentation, including Furuno chartplotter, GPS, and 48” radar, will help you get to all of those special anchorages you have dreamed of exploring. Getting to shore is a breeze in Cabaret’s 13’ Caribe RHIB which carries a 20hp Honda outboard. 

Ample counter space, front- and top-loading fridge and freezers, and a microwave oven allow meals of any size and taste to be created for your group. 3-cabins allow comfortable sleeping for 6 adults. A generator, TV, diesel heat and an air-conditioner allows for year-round cruising with comfort for every member of your party.

Whether your goal is to catch crab or catch sunny rays, Cabaret’s ample deck space will allow your group to travel to any anchorage and enjoy it in style.

Designed to perform without compromising easy cruising, Belle Serena features a fully-battened mainsail, lazy-jacks, electric halyard winch, roller-furling genoa, and the option of a cruising chute for experienced sailors.

Anyone who has cruised B.C. over the past few years has noticed an increasing number of catamarans. This Lagoon 42 is one of the most popular choices thanks to her ease of handling, spacious living spaces, and beautiful profile.

The self-tacking Genoa has a larger fore-triangle for a greater choice of downwind sails. Electric halyard winches allow for ease of handling when sailing short-handed. This Lagoon’s design also includes re-centered weight to greatly reduce pitching.

The Ergonomic helm station features B&G instruments, improved circulation forward and aft, direct access to the coachroof for easier access to the boom, and direct communication between the cockpit and saloon. Four 100-watt solar panels on the sun deck provide additional support to the house bank when enjoying remote anchorages.
