With a new year in front of us, we can reminisce on all of our memories and accomplishments of 2020. With the help of our committed team and our amazing customers we were able to make the most out of the year with a record number of boat sales, awards, and many new faces and friends, and some fun along the way. In the words of owner and president Dave Nolan, "We came into 2020 strong and we are leaving even stronger."

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 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.
