M&P Mercury Yacht Launch at Bayshore Vancouver

Nov 25, 2006

By Catherine Barr


Only in Vancouver can you have a successful boat launch in a snowstorm. Last week, M&P Mercury held an exclusive VIP launch of their newest million dollar boats in Coal Harbour. Snow sprinkled down steadily amidst the palm trees while inside the tent clients ooh'ed and aah'ed as the new 58' Sedan Bridge and 48' Sundancer Sea Ray luxury yachts pulled in to take a bow. Guests took private tours, sipped on cocktails and nibbled on canapes while discussing sunnier shores and luxury destinations for 2007.
