The Fall Run and the SŌLACE 41

Posted by Julie on Oct 30, 2020 4:11:51 PM

The Fall Run is in full swing, the time of the year anglers live for. The fall is the ideal time of year for anglers targeting a PB for striped bass. Striped bass is a migratory fish and arrives in New England in April. Throughout the summer they plump up and in the fall they start to prepare for their migration. This causes them to feed...on everything. They regroup in schools and are on the hunt for baitfish or anything that crosses their vision, it is an anglers dream. Fishing for striped bass is one of the highlights of the Buzzards Bay area and whether it is the Cape Cod Canal, Apponaganset Bay, or the Westport River, you'll be sure to catch your PB this season. With the Fall Run upon us, there is no better boat on the market for fishing than the recently unveiled SŌLACE 41CS.

The Versatile Solace 345

Posted by Julie on Jul 24, 2020 2:07:45 PM

 

The SOLACE 345 is a new innovative design in a once stagnant center console market. Daugherty changed the game by adding additional deck space with the patented FishThru® Transom and transferring the engines outboard away from the traditional center of the boat. With the engines farther apart, the boat is allowed to run in shallower water and handles like an inboard boat using the throttles to control the boat to pivot and turn.

 

The term “innovative” is not thrown around lightly here at Cape Yachts, and no boat can fit this description quite like the SOLACE 345. The patented FishThru® Transom, allows for increased maneuverability when hooked on to the catch of your life, as well as ample room for relaxation in the sun. Along with this new design, the 345 features a carbon epoxy hull which provides a rigid hull and stinger combination, which eases through the turns and runs strong with the waves. Crossed between a sportfish and a cruiser, this boat is the perfect combination for the fisherman and those looking for enjoyable days out on the water.

Favorite Cruising Destinations by Boat - Block Island, RI

Posted by Richard Moore on May 7, 2020 12:12:51 PM

Technically, it is New Shoreman, but for many of us it is simply Block. To the locals it is “The Little Pork Chop." Like an Emerald in the sea, beautiful bike paths, spectacular views and best of all, no chain stores, but for one tiny Ben and Jerry’s. It is refreshing, clean and beautiful. My daughter went to work there for the summer in 2016. She never left. There are stories of pirates and things the locals did with lights ashore, but that is for another time.

Why Life is Better on a Boat

Posted by Gail Farias on Apr 20, 2020 3:43:08 PM

The moment you begin to drift from the dock, you will experience a sense of release. The separation is not only physical in the sense that you are no longer attached to the land, but the tensions and worries of everyday life begin to fade. Suddenly, the water, sky, and the wind become your focus.
