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!!”

"Dear Jordan Yachts - I write with great appreciation for all that Tom Harney has done for us. My wife and I have just purchased our first cruising boat and we plan to sail for a couple of years in the Caribbean with our three small children. Tom has been so much more than a broker and his experience, dedication and commitment to Jen and I have gone way beyond our expectations. In many ways, he is like an “adopted” father who is looking out for me his “adopted” son as we moved into uncharted waters. There have been countless examples of his "above and beyond" execution from our first phone call to ultimately closing on the boat. For example, the official closing of the paperwork could have been the closure of the transaction but to Tom, he was much more interested in seeing that we properly outfitted the boat and provided many recommendations from his 30+ years in the marine industry of who to use and what equipment is needed. In addition, he personally got involved in managing the outfit of the boat well beyond the official closing. Words can't express our appreciation and I would welcome any inquires from potential clients as to the positive experience with Tom Harney - On behalf of my family, a sincere thank you --- www.loveatfirstsail.com" - Marc Konesco s/v adagio
