Oceanis 45To say the summer went by quickly is a great understatement. Hope you spent lots of quality time on the water with your friends and family.

I imagine that most of us rarely venture far from shore when we’re on the water. I was reminiscing about an offshore trip the other day, and this verse from John Masefield’s poem “Sea Fever” came to mind:

I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by,
And the wheel’s kick and the wind’s song and the white sail’s shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea’s face, and a grey dawn breaking.

There’s just nothing like being on the water!

Oceanis 45We are pleased to announce that SBY has become an authorized dealer for Greenline. These electric/diesel hybrid yachts are designed with comfort, efficiency, ease of handling, and respect for the environment. We’ll be getting a Greenline 33 here in Charleston this November, come aboard and check out a new era in boating!

From the Helm
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our new customers that we have worked with this year. We have stayed very busy with all the different parts of a boat sale (financing, commissioning, transportation, and surveys). There are a bunch of shiny new Beneteaus from St. Augustine FL to Oriental NC, and a lot of satisfied customers.
In our territory we have just started our prime Fall boating season. A little less heat and humidity makes for a great time to spend on the water.
I really want to encourage everyone who can to come to a major boat show this Fall/Winter. It is a trip you will always remember. The boat shows are really a great value and afford you the opportunity to compare and contrast hundreds of different models of boats. It is really fun to go. Get some friends or family together for a road trip and head to Annapolis, Ft. Lauderdale, St. Pete or Miami and you will be glad you did.
We’d like to welcome new broker Barbara Burke to our Jacksonville location, and we’re pleased to announce that Steve Leech is back in Oriental. Their knowledge of boats and boating throughout the South East is very strong and they would like to assist you in your search for your boat.
Please stay in touch with us and if we can help you in any way please let us know.
Fair Winds,
Chuck
