2010 Fort Lauderdale Boat Show Kick-Off (FLIBS)

Technically called the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, hence the “FLIBS” acronym, but we all know it as the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show so that’s what we’re going with. Boat Show Schedule: Thu. Oct 28, 10am – 7pm Fri. Oct 29, 10am – 7pm Sat. Oct 30, 10am – 7pm Sun. Oct 31, 10am – 7pm Mon. Nov 1, 10am – 5pm If you’ve never been to the show prepare to be blown away by the sheer mass of it. The in-water display is technically located at the world famous Bahia Mar Resort, but over the years it’s spread out and now stretches from Pier 66 on 17th Street all the way north to Las Olas Blvd.  There’s also a huge small boat and accessories display at the Broward County Convention Center as well as 7 air-conditioned tents at Bahia Mar where you will find more accessories, electronics vendors, tenders, life preservation specialists, yacht designers, shipyards and much more. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z0i1GZry6bw[/youtube] If you’re considering entering the boating lifestyle then you likely have loads of questions and this is the place to find answers. Aside from all the helpful vendors there are also numerous clinics and seminars offered at the show covering a vast array of topics including fishing, crew yachts, charter and others…Visit the Show Management website for details. Parking, lodging, costs and other questions are nicely answered by Show Management on their FLIBS FAQ. You might also qualify for Lucid’s limo service, contact us at 9540650-7353 or via sales@lucidyacht.com to see if you do. For a quick history tour of the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show, you might want to read this article by Yacht Help Desk. The good about FLIBS is that there’s so much to see. The bad about FLIBS is that there’s too much to see. With thousands of boats on display, the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show can be downright scary. Where do you start? Should you see everything? Brokerage or new? Is this a good deal? Is the trade-in number for my boat fair? Are you sure you want a trawler, a raised pilothose, a flushdeck or a skylounge? Full displacement, semi-displacement or planing? Do you even know the difference? How do you know the contracts are right for me? What sort of finance rates should I expect? These are just some of the typical questions. Break it down into category and you encounter even more. Say you find a brokerage boat, now what? How do you properly present the offer while protecting yourself? Who do you hire as the surveyor? Do you need an engine surveyor? Who will handle the closing? and??? Buying an existing new boat has its own set of questions and ordering a new build gets really interesting because now you have so many more choices. My suggestion is that you treat this like any other big investment. Research, plan and find the right advisors prior to the purchase. if you were looking at a home you would call an expert Realtor in the area. You would tell them your basic requirements and their job would be to present you with the proper research and options for you to chose from. The same applies to your investments. You choose an investment company, your agent builds your profile and using that he makes suggestions. Throughout the process the agent learns more about you and is able to deliver more refined choices until you...

Argos 92 by Argos Yachts – a different kind of explorer yacht

[vimeo]9060196[/vimeo] Lucid Alert: Amazing opportunity on 2010 92′ Fast Expedition Yacht!! It’s a 2010 in remarkable condition with extended engine warranties and for less than 50% replacement cost. This yacht is truly turn-key. Just came back from the Bahamas and ready to head off again. Click Here to learn more … Argos Yacht Build Review: Problem: manning your flybridge helm requires a raincoat, Exxon executives know your first name and the boys at the club call you “the buoy”. Solution: Design a semi-displacement hull teetering on semi-planning. The Argos hull delivers very flat running angles throughout the speed curve from 7 knots to 27 knots (and higher). She cuts like a knife in head seas, diffuses the impact of quartering seas on the sides of her bow, rolls minimally in beam seas, stays stead without wallowing in cornering seas, and keeps a straight course in a following sea (again, without wallowing). Efficient hull = less engines = less fuel = more money in your pocket! Smaller engines result in savings on the overall cost of the boat, longer range, a quieter boat and a more accessible and comfortable engine room. A boat that runs properly, saves you money and keeps you dry, what a novel idea. Bonus: This special hull design delivers true displacement type economy at 8 knots, economical slow cruising at 14 knots, and a high cruise (75% of load) at 23 + knots. Prove it? The 92 tested at a near 1:1 mile to gallon ratio at 8kts giving her Trans-Atlantic range! The 65 and 80 models can be configured with smaller engines and still deliver an 18kt top end or with a standard engine package to get you a consistent 23kt cruise!

Problem: The old and stinky E/R. Most engine rooms have painted bilges and perforated aluminum sheets covering up all sorts of wires and pipes. The fiberglass is painted but uneven leaving tons of spaces for grime to accumulate. It’s done this way because it’s quick and easy. The drawback is that soon after delivery the paint yellows from the heat and stains from soot and grime. The aluminum also looks worn and it’s almost impossible to clean the areas behind it. Eventually you are forced to repaint the engine room, but it’s never quite the same. We all just accept that “it looks like a 5 year old boat” Solution: Instead of covering up the problem, Argos faires, paints and polishes the bilges, walls and ceilings so that you can easily wipe them and keep her looking good! Countless man hours go into this process, but the result is a smooth finish that looks as good as the exterior of the yacht. Without a place for grime to hide, odors don’t linger for long and your checkbook doesn’t have to come out. This is the heart of your yacht, treat it like you would your own and you’ll enjoy boating so much more. By the way, this amazing faired and polished look is standard from stern to the bow on the 80’+ models and up to the engine room on the other models!!! Attractive, rugged and useful; just like the good looking fellas at Lucid. Problem: Raw water engine strainers impossible...




Dear Boat Show Fender Kickers,

DEAR FENDER KICKERS, We know that you’re just want to spent a nice weekend looking at what represents an 18+ Billion dollar industry for the State of Florida. We welcome you and hope that you become enamored enough to join our tribe of enthusiasts. All we ask is that you respect the time, effort and expense that the exhibitors invest into this event. For most of us, this particular boat show represents a pivotal milestone in our yearly revenue. A good FLIBS event could be the difference between a healthy company and one that has to face layoffs going into the holidays. Nearly all sales staff in the boating industry are strictly on commission with boat shows typically representing 70% of their income. Beyond the sales staff are the project managers, service team, designers, drafters, carpenters, bookeepers and so many more that make this industry tick. These shows are equally important to the buyers. These are the people that have been studying, planning and seriously contemplating a purchase. These shows offer them a chance to touch and feel, ask questions and possibly negotiate their dream boat. It’s a big emotional and financial decision that deserves a lot of time and attention. A proper boat show experience is one where the buyers can spend as much time with an exhibitor as they need to make the proper purchasing decision. Unfortunately this is not always the case. Often times exhibitors are bombarded by visitors that have no intention of purchasing any time soon or ever. This is ok and it’s actually e Pretending to be a buyer just to get a on a boat (you know who you are) can have long lasting effects in the lives of both the exhibitors and the buyers. If all you want is a peek at a boat and have no real interest or capacity to purchase one, please be up front with the exhibitor. If client traffic is heavy they might ask you to come back. Don’t be offended, just understand that those 5 days are very, very important to them. If you are mindful of this I guarantee you that most of them will ask you to come back when things are a little slower when they can give you a quick tour....
