FORT LAUDERDALE BOAT SHOW GOOD NEWS
Even though it poured rain a good part of the boat show, vendors are reporting satisfaction because they were busy with good quality clients and most important THEY WERE SELLING BOATS. The first few days attendance was up but the last weekend attendance was down ... but luckily serious boat buyers came and braved the rain. Heavy rain actually meant more time spent inside boats by shoppers with more sales time for the vendor. One thing we hear everywhere is, folks are tired of holding off anymore for their new boat upgrade ... and given that most corporations are showing better balance sheets and turning higher profits than we’ve seen for many years, lots of them are making their move and buying while deals on new yachts are still excellent value.
