It’s been quite a while since I have dropped you a line. I am using most of my spare time prepping and refinishing the bright work on Magic. And, I must say the is the most beautiful Sailing Yacht at Salpare Bay and possibly in the Portland area. 2 1/2 years later and I have no regrets and am forever thankful for your guidance thru the process. Plans for the summer at to sail Magic up to the San Juan’s for 2 weeks and finally just relax a bit. I haven’t taken any real time of since we sailed Magic up from SF in May of ’14. I will send pictures. From John Tichenor
2016 Jeanneau 54 Yacht – West Coast Debut at Strictly Sail Pacific this week!
Bali 4.0 vs FP Lucia 40 Catamarans
By Catamaran Guru
After the Paris boat show, a Bali owner alerted me about a blog post by a Fountaine Pajot dealer criticizing the Bali 4.0. He was a little miffed and asked for our opinion. Ordinarily, I wouldn’t pay attention to these snipes, but the post was blatantly misleading and I felt compelled to respond. The dealer published predictably negative comments but in this case the dealer abandoned all reason and logic.Read More
In 1957, Henri Jeanneau, already passionate about aeroplanes and automobiles, had just discovered a brand new passion for powerboating, one that began as he watched a boat pass by his window. Soon afterward, in the small town of Les Herbiers, France, home to a rich heritage of artisan work, he began building a wooden hull with which he participated in the 6-hour Paris race, the largest national race at the time. He was first to cross the line.
Even though Henri Jeanneau is no longer with us, in so many ways, he still is and is still racing today. And winning!
Today we are delighted to be recognized and to receive the award of Best Boats for Families 2015. This award highlights and confirms the spirit of Henri Jeanneau and the LEADER range: sporty, livable boats, ideal for family cruising.Read More
