SUMMER DREAMS

In pursuit of our goal to become the Tri-State region’s premier yacht resource, I’m thrilled to let you know we now offer the Cruisers Yachts collection from 42’ – 60’, all powered with Volvo Penta IPS, to complement Sunseeker Yachts’ 50’-161’ range. Wisconsin-built for over 60 years, Cruisers is known for their high quality and excellent service support. Meet Cruisers management and let us introduce you to this very special yacht line at the New York Boat Show. Strong’s yacht team will show the full Cruisers and Sunseeker range at the 2019 Miami Boat Show Feb. 14-18. 

BEHIND THE SCENES OF THE NEW YORK BOAT SHOW: THE MOVERS & THE SHAKERS

KEVIN WINES, longtime Transportation and Logistics Manager at Strong's Marine, gives you a peek behind the curtain: here’s what goes into setting up the New York Boat Show -- we call this event our “Super Bowl.”

The week before the show is organized chaos: we have four days to get every booth ready for its close up. We’re fortunate to have an amazing crew, and we put a ton of effort into preparing beforehand to make sure everything goes smoothly during load-in and set up. I’m proud to work for Strong’s, and I really care about how we represent ourselves and our boat manufacturers. I know that if we do a great job putting the booths together, we’re setting the sales team up for an awesome week of meeting customers and presenting all we offer in the best light.

We’ve got to get 12 boats from 21’ to 40’ into the Javits Center, along with truckloads of staging materials and supplies, then set everything up perfectly before the show starts. Our first haul to the Javits Center starts early Saturday morning the weekend before the show. Show management organizes load-in; first on our schedule to enter the building are the Pursuit boats.
