2012 Miami Boat ShowFebruary 26th, 2012
Each year we are delighted that so many of our friends and clients make the trip to Miami to experience firsthand the newest models and hear the latest product announcements from our manufacturers. This year was no exception!
We could not have asked for a better atmosphere to start this year’s show, than by having “three of own” recognized for their outstanding sales efforts. First, Hatteras Yachts, in acknowledgment of his dedication and service, presented our Sales Manager, Tim Jones, with two awards, Distinguished Sales Achievement and the prestigious Passion & Pride Award. In addition, Hatteras Yachts also bestowed upon Gulf Coast Hatteras the Silver Achievement Award. Greg LaRossa and Travis Holzburn were both honored by CABO Yachts with Sales Achievement awards. Then it was time for the gates to open.
As you know, we are very excited about the new Hatteras GT series and were thrilled to show off the latest model in this new line of luxury sportfishing yachts, the Hatteras GT63 Enclosed Bridge. With her optional circular interior staircase and top speed of 40 knots, to say she received jaw dropping reactions would be an understatement. This beautiful new addition to the GT line will definitely be in demand! On top of that, Hatteras Yachts unveiled plans for its most arduous undertaking, the Hatteras 95 Motoryacht. We anxiously await the launch of this spectacular luxury yacht.
If you were at the show you no doubt caught the debut of the CABO 40HTX. This newest member of the HTX series exemplifies the re-design of a true favorite. The new integrated hardtop and luxurious interior appeal to a group of people who, in the past, may never have considered owning a CABO. New features, better visibility, and traditional CABO reliability are all are part of the new 40HTX.
You may also have noticed a few changes at the Hatteras/CABO display this year. The display was opened up to allow for better visibility and to give our guests easy access to our spectacular line-up of yachts. This inviting new “feel” allows guests to leisurely peruse the display and encourages boarding of our distinctive models.
Now back home, we are preparing for our upcoming shows along the Gulf Coast. The first show is at Bay Point Marina on March 16th -18th in Panama City Beach, Florida. We will display the Hatteras GT54 as well as a few of our brokerage yachts. The second show in the works is the annual Gulf Coast Yacht & Boat Super Show at The Wharf in Orange Beach, Alabama, March 30th to April 1st. This show bills itself as the largest boat show on the Gulf Coast. We plan to have a great selection of our yachts on display. Keep up with the latest information on these shows by visiting our Facebook page or our recently re-designed webpage, soon to be released!
