I don’t know the specifics, but I know a broker that had several larger boats prepared for the show and was told they didn’t have enough. He was annoyed and said that’s where boats are sold at the show. Although, that surprised me too.

It might surprise some to know that not all boats, in the new show, where actually new. Many are recent models and pre-owned. Some were just for demo, others were for sale themselves.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
