Boasting some of the most picturesque inland protected waterways on earth the USA's Pacific Northwest and West Coast of Canada is about to be the scene of a major marine event with direct links Down Under.

Maritimo Americas, Compass Point Yacht Sales and Silver Seas Yacht Sales are staging a boat owners' rendezvous called the Maritimo Muster at the Port Sidney Marina on Victoria Island, British Columbia in coming weeks with owners of the Australian made vessels set to be treated to three days of fun, good times and education.

The Muster will kick off on Thursday August 30 and run through until the following Sunday and at this stage there are seventeen Maritimo's registered to attend with about 50 people taking part.

Compass Point Yacht Sales, Bill and Michelle King, are co-ordinating the event.

"This is a destination event which means we have owners coming from Canada B.C and from the West Coast of Washington State and California USA," said Michelle King.

"We have timed the Maritimo Muster to be at the end of our boating season because many Maritimo's have been cruising the beautiful waters of the San Juan Islands off Washington State, or continuing up to the Gulf Islands of Canada in recent months.

Maritimo Americas President Dave Northrop said the Australian built vessels were perfectly suited for extended Northwest cruising with the enclosed, climate controlled fly bridges, state of the art engineering, exemplary sea keeping ability, reliability and economic running.

"The long range cruising capability of Maritimo motor yachts enables owners to use their vessels to their full potential in some of the most stunning protected waterways and landscapes on earth."

The Port Sidney event will start on the Thursday with an initial registration and meet and greet event. On Friday there will be a full day of owners' seminars and presentations including a presentation by Maritimo's lead designer Tom Barry-Cotter, on the exciting design projects currently in development at the Australian manufacturing facility.

After lunch there will be a presentation from Quick, featuring their new stabilization gyro, Yacht-Controller and Garmin Electronics. On Saturday the program will see a continuation of the hands-on training seminars with presentations again from Garmin, Yacht-Controller and Quick with representatives spending time with owners educating them and answering questions about handling their vessels.

At the end of the day the participants will be transported by bus to the magnificent Butchart Gardens, celebrating more than 100 years of beauty. A gourmet picnic basket dinner while lounging on Maritimo picnic blankets listening to live jazz and watching the last fireworks show of the year will make for a magical evening.

"On Sunday morning we will have a fully catered breakfast for our Maritimo owners and their guests before bidding them farewell at various times during the day," said Michelle King.

"The Port Sidney Muster is about education, socialising, camaraderie and making sure our owners get the most out of the vessels and the boating lifestyle that exists in this part of the world."

Barry-Cotter said Compass Point Yacht Sales, Silver Seas Yacht Sales and Maritimo Americas, were important partners with Maritimo in promoting the brand through the Americas and Canada.
