Twin Anchors Adds New Freightliner
Korean Boat Show
Twin Anchors Marine Manufacturing attended the Korean International Boat Show in June 2012 to promote our houseboats and accommodation units and introduce the new Euro model.
The Euro, a compact houseboat with yacht like qualities, was very well received. The attendance at the show was excellent and several good contacts were made in the Asian market.
Twin Anchors Houseboat Russia Bound
A new houseboat designed specifically for the rivers and lakes of Eastern Europe was shipped to St. Petersburg, Russia in 2012. The new boat is smaller, sleeker, far more robust and has more modern finishes and furnishings than any other model currently available in Russia. This boat is expected to stimulate houseboating in Eastern Europe and be the first of many to ply their rivers and lakes.
This boat was also featured on CHBC news
Houseboating, it’s a “Shore Thing”
Ken Zeal, from Reno Nevada, chose Twin Anchors to build a new 15’X 60’ custom houseboat for himself and his family. They have been spending lots of quality family time on the new houseboat moored at Bullard’s Bar Lake in California; just an hour north of his home in Reno Nevada. The new boat named “Shore Thing” replaces a faithful, older houseboat, which Ken, his wife Cheryl and daughters Shaylia & Ashley had enjoyed for seven years. He fondly talks about how the earlier boat looked like a floating doll house but he now wanted a larger, modern houseboat with all the comforts of home.
Ken and family now spend as much time as possible on their reverse floor-plan houseboat. They enjoy entertaining family and friends from the amazing covered bridge-deck with a Jacuzzi hot tub, large granite bar, entertainment centre, BBQ and a seating area that comfortably seats ten. The reverse floor plan, with galley and spacious salon area at the stern of the boat, allows the Zeal family to overlook the lake from the living area of their houseboat. Bullard Bar’s shoreline, mostly steep and tree lined, offers the best Kokanee fishing in all of California and Nevada.
Ken talked to Nigel Lamb who visited Bullards Bar during one of his trips through California visiting the many marinas that have chosen Twin Anchors to build their rental fleets. “Nigel was a big part of why I decided to come to Sicamous and check out Twin Anchors Marine Manufacturing.” Ken added “I came to do business and expected everything to be very businesslike but: at the end of the build, I felt like family.”
The Zeals had considered a purchasing a cottage or condo as a vacation get away but just couldn’t find anything that would compare to the flexibility and the affordability of a custom houseboat, not to mention the ability to experience a new and different waterfront view ever day if they so wished. “We have maximized every square foot, thanks to Nigel and Greg’s extensive knowledge and Karen Eastland who is sharp and creative Interior Designer.”
Ken and Cheryl took delivery of “Shore Thing” in May 2012 and enjoy their new home away from home three weekends out of four from spring through fall.
To sum it up Ken said simply; “Twin Anchors has helped fulfill our dreams.”
Twin Anchor Employees Raise $1000 for Local Food Bank
Twin Anchor Marine and TA Structures raised $1000.00 dollars for the local food bank at our Annual Christmas Party. Even though this years party was only 65 people where as last year we had 180 people at the party.
The employees raised $460.00 by donating funds from their staff Comittee, donations of money at party and also Mike Wolf shaved his beard off at the party to raise money. Always a great sport and very entertaining! If you recall at our last event his wife auctioned him off!
Many food items were also brought in to be dropped of at the Sicamous Resource Centre. Twin Anchors Mfg met each donation and thought we should just make it an even $1000.00. The event was very relaxing and everyone had a great time in at The Anchor Pub which was decorated beautifully for Christmas and the food was absolutely amazing!
