Sterndrives and Joysticks, Oh My… The Miami International Boat Show

Ft. Lauderdale Boat ShowWhen it comes down to the nitty gritty in the boat world, we usually keep our mouths shut. The fact of the matter is that there is too much technical jargon surrounding yachts, speedboats, even jetskis, for most sea-vessel owners to even know what’s up.  We are here to tell you don’t worry! Whether you are an owner looking to increase your fleet or a newby just learning about nautical miles, it’s ok because starting on October 30th you can get a full-on education.  The World’s largest boat show will be in South Florida.


South Florida boat showPresented by Ginn sur Mer and hosted by 10 Cane Rum again this year, the 49th edition of the International Boat Show will be set over six locations in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.  Here through Monday, November 3rd, 2008 the show will feature more than $$3 billion worth of boats, yachts, superyachts, electronics, engines and thousands of accessories from every major marine manufacturer and builder worldwide.  The Boat Show comprises more than 3 million square feet of space by land and water, at six sites, all connected by the Show’s Transportation Network of water taxis, riverboats and bus shuttles.  Last year we went VIP thanks to 10 Cane Rum a Louie Vuitton Moet Hennessy brand, and in our opinion the essential ingredient for the world’s greatest Mojito.  The 2007 Internation Boat Show was first class all the way, we thoroughly appreciated the grandiose, contemporary mega-yachts and were entertained by the gorgous models prancing around in little bity bikinis with free drinks.  We will be back again this year and expect nothing less for 2008.  If you can’t make the show then stayed tuned here with us, as we will be documenting all the sea vessel knowledge we learn, adventures we have and sillyness we find for you!
