It’s Wintertime – Boating Florida Style!

Florida in February 2010

While Mother Nature is creating havoc in the northeast, Captain Chris Yacht Services is having a blast here in SUNNY and WARM Florida! Look at who’s on the bow of this beautiful Krogen Express 52…Captain Alyse is with the recent graduates of PassageMaker University’s “Building Cruising Confidence As A Couple.” Captain Chris is behind the camera. CONGRATULATIONS to all!

The boat show season is now in full swing and our calendar is filling fast. Drop us an email and let us know how we can help with your adventure on the water.

Help is on the way If you are cross-eyed from looking at different boats and can’t decide which is the right one for you, please call us to help with your boat selection. We have years of cruising experience and will share what works and sometimes what doesn’t. We’ve learned alot being on the waterways and are pleased to pass on all this good information for you to benefit. Many of our new clients have asked us to come aboard and crawl around before they make an offer on their dream boat. This is a great way for you decide what boat fits your idea of the cruising lifestyle. 

Where in the world are Chris & Alyse? We’ve just returned from the first Trawler Fest in Fort Lauderdale. What a terrific location for trawler training. So much to see, so much to learn about boating all in one location. Click here for photos of all the fun, Mardi Gras beads and all.

Speaking of Mardi Gras, Super Bowl is just around the corner and it’s the first time our New Orleans SAINTS have made it to the show. We’re so proud and can’t wait to cheer them on to victory! Although we won’t be able to make it to the game we will be watching the NFL grand finale from the saloon of a Beneteau Swift Trawler 42. We are joining the owners of DESIRE– an appropriately named boat from Louisiana- on a training delivery from Charleston, South Carolina to Stuart, Florida. We will be somewhere near Jacksonville when the SAINTS go marching in. GEAUX SAINTS!
