We hope you are enjoying the summer and getting a chance to get out on the water! 


This is an exciting time for us as we transition between summer vacations into the 2014-2015 Boat Show Season! We are kicking things off with hosting our semi-annual Fall Bayfront Boat Show, October 10-12 in Marina Jack. This is the first time we’ve had this event in October, so we hope the turnout will be better than ever.  Save the date!  


Our boutique-style show features the area’s best in new and brokerage yachts for sale. There will be vendors including marine finance and maintenance on hand. More details about the show and the yachts on display coming soon! 


Our new inventory of Edgewater Boats will arrive soon!  Stay tuned for an open house to display our new line.  


As always, thank you for taking the time to read through our newsletter. Your comments and suggestions are always appreciated, therefore keep’ em coming. Please stop by any of our locations to say hello and to speak about our favorite pastime – Boating!

Best Wishes from The Helm,

New Destinations
Caribbean Coast of Colombia
For more adventurous cruisers looking for somewhere new, consider Colombia! We recommend Colombia for its beautiful colonial architecture, gorgeous landscapes, fun-loving people and overall colorful mix of Latin and Caribbean flavor. Cruising and boating in Colombia is becoming more and more popular. Many marinas have been built in the last few years and new ones are in construction. If this destination interests you, check out the blog S/V Earthling, written by Capt. George Reza for a first-hand account of cruising to this beautiful country.
