2012 Miami International Boat Show

Filed under: General — Richard Jordan @ 12:00 am

Sure to be a highlight in Miami - the new Hylas 56

This year’s Miami Show opens Thursday, the 16th, and runs until Monday, the 20th. Locations are the Miami Beach Convention Center, Sea Isle Marina & Yachting Center, Miamarina At Bayside. Larger yachts because of bridge height restrictions slip at Sea Isle while the majority of yachts will be at Bayside. Compared to Fort Lauderdale, the show is about sailboats instead of megayachts with most the major manufacturers represented as well as a good group of brokerage boats. The audience of Miami is international including a strong Latin American audience. Overall Miami is a show you will enjoy with many outside entertainment opportunities. Here are some items of interest to enjoy.

  • Multihulls Galore – Strictly Sail has become a one stop shop for the best and newest multi-hull designs. Come by and compare Lagoon, Leopards, Outremers, Fountain-Pajot, and all the other major brands in one spot.
  • Offshore Yachts – While they skipped Lauderdale, the high end offshore monohull builders like Hylas, Passport will be here with their latest models.
  • International Flavor – Miami is truly a mixing pot of Latin American cultures and also European. The show is US based companies best shot to impress these growing markets who love yachts.

And feel free to stop and meet me in person at Slip 12B at Bayside representing Scotia Yachts.

Joke of the Week
(This joke is a variation of the one told last week inspired by an Australian couple I met who had jolly, twisted sense of humor.)

An Englishman wanted to become an Irishman, so he visited a doctor to find out how to go about this. “Well” said the doctor, “this is a very delicate operation and there is a lot that can go wrong. I will have to remove half your brain”. “That’s OK” said the Englishman. “I’ve always wanted to be Irish and I’m prepared to take the risk”.

The operation went ahead but the Englishman woke to find a look of horror on the face of the doctor. “I’m so terribly sorry!!” the doctor said. “Instead of removing half the brain, I’ve taken the whole brain out”. The patient replied, “No worries, mate!!”

"I was living in Minneapolis and asked a friend (who had completed a seven year circumnavigation in their sailboat) for the name of a boat broker to help me find the "sailboat of my dreams". Without reservation they recommended Tom Harney of Jordan Yachts. The search and comparisons of a variety of boats produced the perfect boat for me. After the closing, Tom shared his time and marine contacts which were invaluable making the boat my own. I enjoyed four years of live-aboard sailing but when the t came time to sell the boat there wasn't any question that I would list the boat with Tom Harney. The video produced to sell my boat featured music, voice, and photography of professional quality and it attracted buyers from several states. I frequently use the words "above and beyond" to describe the high level of customer service I received by Tom Harney and Jordan Yachts." - AH SV DAKOTA
