Perhaps it’s a coincidence or maybe a touch of cabin fever, but ever since the Ft. Lauderdale show wrapped up in October, the boat business has been busy.
We went into the fall having a 41 Jupiter Sport Bridge under construction, as well as a 37 Ocean Express, which was a good way to head into the latter part of the year. Then, in mid-November, we saw the sales department just take off.
We had met a new client at the Jupiter Marine display at the Ft Lauderdale Boat show, and Mr. M. worked with us to begin building a 32 Jupiter cuddy to his specifications. We also received a contract on our stock 30 Jupiter FS in the week before Christmas and are expecting to settle on that in January.
Aside from all of the new boat activity, we received and submitted 8 purchase offers on brokerage boats during a 6 week period. Generally, we take the week between Christmas and New Years off , but not this year. We were steady busy through the holidays.
All of the new boat activity has our service department preparing to be busy installing electronics packages as the new boats are prepared for delivery to their new owners. Be sure to check back to see what electronics our buyers chose to equip their boats with. We love the technology that is available today and is coming to the market, and we’re sure you’ll be impressed, as well.
With the momentum and activity we have now at years end, there is no doubt 2015 will be off to a great start.
