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!

More space, comfort, privacy and stability. Less fuel. What could be better?

Nikko Bella joins us at the end of May.


Subject: JUST ADDED - one sailboat and one powerboat
(Posted on Dec 18, 2010 at 11:35AM )
We have just added two boats to the fleet.  Arcturus will be a brand new 2011 Bavaria 32 that will be delivered in April and is destined for the Powell River fleet.  She is the first of the new generation Bavaria Yachts to head into a charter program anywhere in North America.  Bruce Farr is known for designing boats with excellent sailing characteristics and Arcturus is certain to benefit from this new design style.  The massive fold down transom platform is impressive (and our dock crew is glad they don't have to glue foam to the underside of the stern seats - which perpetually fell overboard on the older Bavarias)

The other addition is Cachet, a Carver 430 with a spectacular layout.  This well equipped boat is undergoing a host of updates this winter so she will be fresh for the 2011 season.  Check out Cachet and reserve today out of our Sidney location!
Subject: Get those long boat holidays booked in now
(Posted on Oct 29, 2010 at 10:03AM )
As the calendars start to fill up, it becomes progressively more challenging to fit the long reservations in.   We already have a bunch of 2 week bookings for 2011, along with a few 3 and 4 week reservations on key boats.   It is so fantastic to get out for a long time as our coast has so many places to see and one can truly unwind on a long adventure on the water.   Cooper is uniquely positioned to handle these longer bookings as clients can effectively start at one base and make a 'pitstop' at another base along the way.
Remember, the moment you have the reservation, you can start planning and really looking forward to your adventure on the water.  We've collectively got the most experience helping people plan spectacular trips on this coast.


To help checking boats by date available, please take a look at our secure online booking system.  Our system is compliant with the new credit card rules and open 24/7 so you can plan from the comfort of your own home.
