San Diego Boat Show
In the balmy Southern Californian sunshine, from July 26 through July 29, Fraser Yachts made its foray into the 9th Annual San Diego Yacht and Boat Show. The buzzing industry event is the premier yacht show in San Diego and was presented by the Automobile Club of Southern California. In the nine years since its inception, the San Diego Yacht and Boat Show has smartly positioned itself as a multi-tier show which features yachts for a variety of lifestyles and budgets at the most competitive prices of the year. This year, the event took place in front of the Sheraton Hotel on Harbor Island.
Exhibitors at the San Diego Yacht and Boat Show lined up their vessels of all shapes and sizes in the hotel’s marina. There were also hands-on sailing clinics during the event where visitors could perfect their skills on power yachts and sailboats. The charming West Coast agglomeration of San Diego is host to one of America’s largest domestic military presences, and military personnel were welcome guests with invitation gratis. The event was also sponsored by the California Department of Boating and Waterways, which takes responsibility for the public safety of boating in USA’s most populous state. Through the Pacific breeze, Fraser Yachts enthusiastically entered the event to set up their stand with five luxury yachts for sale on display in the marina, resulting in some success. Amongst the throng of quality attendees over four days, Fraser attracted some substantial interest from potential clients hailing from Arizona, Nevada, and Mexico. Their brokers established relationships with serious visitors. Sentiment following the show was positive, as Fraser feels it had grasped the opportunity to create promising leads. Fraser Yachts is established in Europe and has a presence in Fort Lauderdale on the East Coast, so this was an excellent chance for them to exhibit their yachts in the West Coast market. All in all, it was an event which Fraser will to return to, and their brokers look forward to attending an even more successful San Diego Yacht and Boat Show 2013, possibly with a slightly larger display. That’s just one of the many events where Fraser Yachts exhibits - until then, you can meet them between 11th and 22nd September at the world-class yacht shows in Monaco and Cannes in the South of France, where they will be displaying more of their luxury yachts for sale and charter. Their brokers look forward to meeting you then.
