Snapshots: Palm Beach International Boat Show

I made a quick trip to Palm Beach this week to attend our annual meeting and get a peek at the show lineup. I got to will-call bright and early Thursday AM to pick up my creds and get into the show before it opened. I love walking the docks before a show opens to get unobstructed views of the boats.

I also spent some time with my United Yacht Sales colleague and Certified Professional Yacht Broker Willy McCormick. Willy, also a former Marine, sold me my current boat almost 14 years ago and was instrumental into getting me into the brokerage business. But that’s a story for another day.

Willy has a really exceptional boat in the show, a CNM Continental 50. CNM stands for Cantieri Navali del Mediterraneo. You can learn more about this company and their products here.

I took a short video of the interior which doesn’t do the boat justice at all but gives you a feel for the layout.

For a much better video from CNMs website, go here.

I really love dock walking of all kinds. Some water, some boats, some sun, some boat talk… all good. It’s not every day you get sights like this however.

And who doesn’t love a sweet Riva runabout
