What's new and hot for the 2016 Toronto International Boat Show.

Toronto International Boat Show

Because we know that you're all eagerly awaiting the arrival of the 2016 Toronto International Boat Show, we thought we'd help with the suspense and give you a sneak peek of some new items that will be at the show this year!

The show runs January 9th-17th with a special preview night on Friday January the 8th.

To see all these new goodies in person, make sure to visit the Fogh Marine Retail Booth G-535. We'll also be at the Helly Hansen booth, G-639, which is just north of the Fogh Retail Booth.

Our Fogh Marine Boat Booth, 1339, will feature the MK2 Laser Sail and all our boats, kayaks, and SUPs! (We know, we're everywhere).

P.S. Skip the lines and buy your tickets online!


Brand new to Fogh Marine, the TackingMaster is the latest innovation in tactical navigation for sailors. It was nominated for a DAME award at METS 2015 - an award that recognizes the best designed products in the marine industry for equipment and accessories.


The TackingMaster is the tactical navigation device that helps you sail smarter. It aims to make it easier to understand and visualize changes and trends of the wind during regatta sailing. It helps the tactical sailor to visualize all the most important main bearings in order to be better prepared for the next wind change.

Take a peek at the video below to see how it works!

MK2 Laser Sail

Selling out fast! The brand new MK2 Lase Sail from Laser Performance brings a whole new dimension to laser sailing. A completely new class-legal design for the Laser standard rig sail. This update marks the first change to the sail in over 40 years.

The Standard Mark II Sail is the result of thousands of hours of design work and on-the-water testing involving the Laser builders, the Association, two major sailmakers and some of the world’s top sailors.

The Mark II features bi-radial panels, a heavier 4.5 ounce cloth and optimized reinforcement patches, all intended to maximize the sail’s competitive life. The sail also features tapered battens with Velcro batten pocket closures, a larger window for improved visibility and a patented re-designed luff tube to eliminate wrinkles at the mast joint.

See if for yourself at our Boat Display Booth #1339.

*Note: Tapered Battens Sold Separately.
