Oceanis 45With Labor Day behind us we now enter what many consider the best of the boating season. The crowds are gone, the water is still swimmable, and the days still beautiful. Enjoy every minute on the water!
Hopefully you and your boat escaped the wrath of Irene and her fellow storms this season. Ours is a sport intimately connected to the weather, and when Mother Nature gets angry it affects us all greatly.
Breaking Yacht News
Oceanis 45 coming to our Charleston Office
Oceanis 45As you approach the Oceanis 45, you recognize that this yacht is versatile, intelligent – and beautiful.

On board, harmony reigns
supreme: everything is in its place, ready to serve a varied profile of life aboard. Prepare to get carried away by a new world of comfort, and enjoy an ocean of space.
All those great moments shared around the cockpit take on another dimension with the practical open bathing platform, reinvented by Beneteau. More practicality is embodied in the chart table, serving also as a living room table.
Never has sailing been so comfortable. The mainsail arch enables you to sail in complete safety while providing more cockpit and deck space. We’ve also widened the bilge, creating excellent hull rigidity and increasing living space. With limited heel, the yacht’s sea keeping ability is improved without loss of speed.
Call our office to arrange a private tour, and Click Here to see specs, photos, and videos of this beautiful boat.

St. Barts Upcoming Boat Shows
We have a busy boat show schedule in October! See our show calendar to the right for details, but we are sure to have something for everyone! At the Annapolis SailBoat Show we’ll have two new models from the Oceanis line: the 41 and 45.
Oceanis 41The Oceanis cruisers are designed to deliver exceptional comfort, beginning with a stable, high-performance hull. Comfort extends to the cockpits, sunbathing platforms and interior space, giving everyone the space they need to relax and enjoy the pleasure of being together.

From the Helm
September is here and our boat show preparation is well underway. St Bart’s brokers and I will be traveling a lot in October. We are fortunate to have the opportunity to participate in 4 major shows next month.
As you can see in the schedule, we will be displaying brand new boats, both power and sail. Beneteau has gone all out with new product that clearly demonstrates the advantage of the new designs.
With new features incorporated in every new model, there is a great case to be made for buying a new boat. As we meet you at the shows we will be listening and watching your reaction to seeing the new product, and we’re prepared to explain all the features and benefits on any particular model.
The huge investment made by Beneteau to have so many new models has been very successful. It is going to be a great fall for St Barts and our clients and we really look forward to seeing you at the shows.
We feel very fortunate to have escaped any damage in our Charleston and Jacksonville Florida offices. Dave and Steve in Oriental were not so lucky, but it could be worse. We had 3 feet of water in our office at the Oriental Harbor Marina, but no damage to our inventory. We should be back in the office by mid September.
I really hope you are able to make one of the shows this fall. Going boating is a great family activity, and picking out the boat is really an enjoyable part of the whole process.
Have a great fall and I hope to speak with you soon.
