Halloween is around the corner. That means that it is time for the Fort Lauderdale boat show. Beginning on October 28, the modified version of the boat show begins at Bahia Mar. Informa, show management, is reported to have put together a comprehensive plan to ensure, as best as possible, the safety of attendees and vendors.
Paula and I will be here with passes for you. We are not displaying any yachts. Apollo Yachts management feels that the risk to the crews on the yachts is far too great.
One of the modifications is that appointments are necessary on most yachts. We are happy to make appointments on any yachts that you want to see or simply give us the parameters of what you want to see and we will select the best options. Endless Summer, 92’ Paragon, will be available for viewing with an appointment. It is not in the show but near by. This is a must see if you are planning to create family adventures and have fun. Our new charter listing, Current $ea, 95’ Princess, will be in the area as well. Current $ea has just completed a major refit. Nearly every toy possible has been added on board.
We hope to see you next week in Ft Lauderdale. If you are not comfortable coming to the show let me know and we can go to any boat and conduct a FaceTime visit onboard.
Stay safe and happy boating!

Informa announced that they have approval from government officials to proceed with the Ft Lauderdale Boat Show. From October 28 through Nov 1, the largest (and unfortunately the only major yacht show this season) will take place at Bahia Mar Yachting Center in Ft Lauderdale. Informa has reportedly planned extensive screening and safety measures to best protect exhibitors and guests.
Paula and I will welcome you and provide advanced appointments to visit any yachts of interest. Pre arranged appointments will be necessary. Call me and we can discuss which yachts you want to visit. Our goal is to offer you a safe and enjoyable visit during these trying times. There will be many yachts available in the area that have chosen not to participate in the show.

I hope that everyone is staying healthy and safe. I have been hanging out on the lake and trying to avoid travel when possible. Social distancing is important.
Apollo has been busy over the past few months. There have been a lot of boats sold. Primarily under $500k. The Naples and Boston office are busy. The boys in Miami are busy with charters. Now that the world is opening up again we have seen a boost in charter bookings.
