The Triton


Where are you taking the boat this spring?


After the show ends today, most of the captains and crew surveyed yesterday said they were heading to their South Florida homeport or a Ft. Lauderdale shipyard, which tends to be the story after South Florida boat shows. So we asked where the yacht was headed after that.

Most are staying put in South Florida, waiting for the call. But almost as many are heading to the Bahamas, either for charters or the owner’s private use. Here’s hoping there’s more owners and buyers wanting to go have fun this spring.
