Free airfare!

Much to report on here, as always, but first I’d like to wish everyone a great Fourth of July on the water. And watch out for the bozo’s! Yesterday I took the 72 out to observe the start of the NYAC Trans-Atlantic race. Maltese Falcon, the 298 foot schooner that was built just a few hundred yards from our docks in Istanbul, was the star of the fleet:

It was a complete zoo at the start, some of the most challenging parking lot conditions I’ve seen. Here is a shot of my radar screen at one point:

So, like I said, watch out for the bozo’s out there.

I have some exciting news about our listing for Summer Nights, the Vicem 51 in Michigan. The owner has generously offered to pay the airfare of any interested client who would like to fly out and see her. You would fly into Traverse City. It can easily be done in a day trip.

How about this: If you have ever had an interest in our 92 Cruiser, a huge opportunity awaits you.

I am informed that we are shipping her to Italy in four weeks. If you are looking for a major deal on a major boat, the next few weeks are the time to jump.  Lets just say I am a bit motivated. A wonderful virtual tour can be found at:

Here’s a smaller one for you, and a bit of a blast from the past. Those of you who have been with me from the beginning may recall that early on I was also the dealer for another Turkish boat called The Daytripper:

She is a forty foot jet boat, with responsive Hamilton Jets. I sold a few of these, and really developed an affection for them. Great interiors, great handling, low draft, just a winner. Well, we have a listing for one now.  Here is the complete specs:

That’s it for now. But stay tuned for a MAJOR new brokerage listing coming soon. A truly amazing boat coming to a blog near you.

Meanwhile, you know the drill – If you have any questions, just launch a flare.
