FLIBS17: Checking the Tide: Where are you headed after the show?

ADVERTISEMENT

While most yachts in the boat show this week are for sale, and “plans” can change if the right buyer emerges, we were curious to know where boats are heading after the horns sound today at 6 p.m. Most had an immediate destination, but winter plans were still not set in stone.
