A big welcome to SUI 132, Sophie II, the first boat to arrive in Vancouver, safe and sound, in early May!

Our contact for the hook-to-hook process, rigger Steve White, was very excited when Hugo Stenbeck’s Sophie II arrived in Vancouver just a few days ago. Not only because Sophie II is the first boat to arrive, but also because Hugo and his team did a really nice job on the packing. Sophie II arrived safe and sound and the unloading went very smoothly, according to Steve.

We can’t wait to see her out in our waters!
