TheBoaters.TV EP 59 - TheBoaters TV was at this year’s show, which took place last weekend, October 25 - 29, 2007.

In this episode, we take you on a tour of the venue with all its spectacular boats, products -- and even people -- that were on display, both on land and in water, throughout the show’s six sites.

Highlights in this episode include:

* “Green Boating” was a big theme at this year’s show, with many companies coming out with examples of environmentally-friendly products and business practices. We introduce you to Greg Minck, Vice President of Quality Boat Lifts, Inc, which makes solar-powered boat lifts: www.QualityBoatLifts.com

* We introduce you to this year’s FLIBS “Queen of the Show” – a superyacht so immense in size and lavish in luxury that she reigns supreme over the more than 200 superyachts that gather annually for this major event. Meet this year’s Queen: M/Y “Kismet.” Presented by prestigious yacht builder, Lürssen, M/Y “Kismet” is 223 feet long, 42 feet wide, 66 feet high, and worth a show record $130 Million. She “held court” at the Fort Lauderdale Grande Yacht Club & Marina, one of the show’s six venue sites. Interior photos courtesy of Moran Yacht & Ship: http://www.MoranYachts.com
