Cooper Boating welcomes Lagoon PowerCat 43 NIKKO BELLA!It is no secret that the popularity of catamarans has been growing in recent years. Why? Their wider beam and double-hulled stance offers more space and stability compared to a monohull of the same length. But Nikko Bella, as a *power* cat, has an extra advantage over a single-hull powerboat: better fuel economy. This is a result of the reduced drag of two shallower hulls, which give you the speed you want while consuming less fuel in the process. With 3 staterooms, each with its own head, this boat is a perfect choice for couples!
One fun filled evening at our Granville Island sailing school classroom for shore based training followed by up to 4 hours on the water for a total of 7 hours of instruction for the world's best pastime!

At any of of these shore based sessions, we will organize folks into subsequent water based afloat sailing sessions, which will be offered evenings from 5pm to 9pm or dusk (whichever is earlier). Classroom groups will be divided into on the water sessions offered in the 2 weeks following each shore based session.
To reserve a space in a classroom session above, please go to our course page for this program.
We are unable to book the water sessions through the office - these reservations are only made at the classroom sessions.
Afloat sessions are aboard our Martin 244 pocket cruisers - designed and built locally for maximum sailing fun in Vancouver Harbour.
Friends and family of Cooper Boating travelled to New Zealand in February 2011 for sailing in a land that closely resembles our Canadian West Coast. Except the water was warmer!
Contact Marla if you would like to know MORE about sailing in a country that seems to have invented HOSPITALITY and laid back lifestyles. New Zealand is part of our International Cooper Vacations program.
