Technically, it is New Shoreman, but for many of us it is simply Block. To the locals it is “The Little Pork Chop." Like an Emerald in the sea, beautiful bike paths, spectacular views and best of all, no chain stores, but for one tiny Ben and Jerry’s. It is refreshing, clean and beautiful. My daughter went to work there for the summer in 2016. She never left. There are stories of pirates and things the locals did with lights ashore, but that is for another time.

Have You Seen the Beneteau Swift Trawler 47?
This amazing yacht was introduced in Fort Lauderdale last fall and in a word, “she is breathtaking.” Everything Beneteau has learned for the last sixteen years with the Swift Trawler 42, then the Swift Trawlers 34, 30, 35, 44, 50, 52 and now the 47 shows just how much Beneteau does to make each yacht special and how much they have learned over sixteen years……Oh yeah, 135 years of building boats helps too! From innovative design to performance and economy, this is it. The ability to run at efficient trawler speeds with great range, with the ability to outrun bad weather at over 20 knots. These are special boats!

Oceanis 46.1 Truly an Amazing yacht
Last September, I had the opportunity to spend the whole day with the Beneteau team in Newport Rhode Island aboard the all new Oceanis 46.1. I’ve heard so many times, “Beneteau sure got it right.” This time with cherries on top!! This is truly an amazing yacht, far beyond anything Beneteau has done to date and as a world leader in technology and design by Pascal Conq and Nauta Design. Multiple choices of layouts, beautiful interior wood selections and innovative rigging designs make this an easy and really fun boat to sail, and she is fast.

Having spent many years selling boats, I’d like to offer my thoughts and help you in the boat buying process. The first and probably most important thing, is to think about how you will use your new boat. Consider the following: location, crew, fishing, cruising, etc. Will you be overnighting on the boat? Will you be entertaining or fishing, maybe a combination of both? There is nothing worse than spending too much money or too little, only to find that the wrong boat is at your dock. So, we begin.
