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.
National Safe Boating Week kicks off the third week of May, just before many of us get out on the open water. The occasion is meant to draw attention to the importance of boating safely and to take a fresh look at boating safety tips.
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.

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.
There are very few things in life more exhilarating than purchasing a brand-new cruising sailboat or powerboat. At the right dealership, like Cape Yachts, the buying process should be fun and enjoyable every step of the way. Conversely, there are few things in life more irritating and frustrating than needing service on your brand-new yacht and getting a poor response from the dealership where you just bought it.
You are thinking about selling or trading your marine pride and joy. But how do you know what it is truly worth? The adage about value based on “what the market will bear” naturally depends on the supply and demand for comparable boats and your urgency to buy or sell.
Many of us harbor dreams of sailing wherever and whenever we like. When we take time to pause, life on the water under blue skies can be both relaxing and therapeutic, offering an escape that makes many of our worldly concerns seem distant.
Maybe your fantasies of sailing away on an extended sea adventure or even dreaming of life aboard a yacht full-time are still slightly somewhat vague. You can bring those dreams into greater focus when you check out the latest Oceanis Sailing Yachts built by one of the world’s leading yacht design innovators, Beneteau.
