It may be chilly out there….but summer is coming and the 59th annual Toronto International Boat Show this weekend couldn’t be a better reminder of that!

 

We had a chance to preview the amazing lineup of new boats last night at the Enercare Centre, Exhibition Place in Toronto where crowds lined up to check out the latest and greatest first hand…

This is an incredible opportunity for those looking into a new watercraft to see all the competition side by side, chat with the folks who are in the know and actually get to tour inside the cabins…

Think a boat may be out of your price range?  Well, Canadian boat and marine manufacturers are trying to make boating more affordable and a reality for more people by creating greater choice in the market and new technology…

 

 

Coming to the Toronto Boat Show is also where you get amazing discounts before the season begins on the new models.  Seriously, we are taking BIG discounts for new boats…

We were told that small pleasure watercrafts are seeing a huge rise in popularity which have spurnned on innovations like electric surfboards, inflatable stand up paddle boards, light weight kayaks and even a foldable boat that can be easily stored and secured to the top of a car…

Other highlights of the show include the debut of a 100 per cent electric powered boat made by The Canadian Electric Boat Company, based in Quebec.  The Bruce 22 uses zero fuel, produces zero emissions or greenhouse gas, and is noiseless. The electric boat can hit speeds up to 72km/h and has up to 8 hours of battery operating range.

BOTTOM LINE: This is great fun for anyone in the market for a boat, or just wanting to kick those January blahs for an afternoon!
