About Powerboat Television Show

PowerBoat TV is a weekly half-hour television show focusing on power boats and the boating lifestyle. From fish boats to luxury cruisers, great destinations and helpful DIY segments, we cover what’s of interest to boaters at large and have been doing so since 1990! PowerBoat Television is broadcast in HD across Canada on Global Television on Saturdays at 11:00 AM.

To catch the show at any time from anywhere you can also watch our episodes right here in HD, one week after they have aired. If you are looking to catch our non-current episodes, you can see all the shows from 2013 to present online right here as well.

PowerBoat TV Producers & Hosts

Jon Blaicher is a Producer and co-host of PowerBoat Television with extensive boating experience. He comes from a family of boaters — power on his father’s side and sail on his mother’s. In the 80s, he raced Lasers, Laser 2s, Albacores, and Code 40s and grew up boating on Lake Simcoe and Georgian Bay.

About 10 years ago he bought a small Formula 252SS cuddy with a 502 Mag MPI before moving onto a 2005 Chaparral Signature 270 with a pair of Mercruiser 5.0 TKS carb stern drives. Now he’s the proud owner of a 37’ President Sedan Bridge he uses as a floating cottage. He’s in the process of getting it modernized. He doesn’t just drive the boats, he likes to fix them too.

Jon previously hosted Snowmobiler TV, where he wrote and produced snowmobile test reviews and new product segments. He’s also been involved in the Labatt WaterWise Boat Pro team, traveling the province delivering PWC safety-related messaging. Most recently, Jon served as a Product Manager with Yamaha for 13 years.
