Thanks to everyone for helping us have a fantastic boat show in Fort Lauderdale! It was great to see so many of our customers and showcase our award-winning models. We more than doubled the success of last year's boat show!
While only one Aquila 36 and two Aquila 44 models were on display at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, 11 boats found happy homes. Two will be joining a charter fleet in the British Virgin Islands with MarineMax Vacations. The energy was strong and even customers looking at competitor brands couldn't resist it - with several deciding to choose Aquila. Several nights the team stayed late after the show as interest was so strong and they were still meeting with customers, including finishing purchases. We're very excited to soon deliver these boats to their new homes.
The success of the show is driven by our customers, the great team we had working the booth and the support from our marketing team. The team at the booth included our Aquila Brand Manager, MarineMax St. Petersburg's General Manager and sales consultants from both MarineMax Clearwater and St. Petersburg. Also present at the show to showcase another way to experience Aquila was the MarineMax Vacations team to share charter vacations and the charter yacht ownership program with attendees. Thank you to everyone and see you at the next show!
