The Boatshed Team are just back from thier first International Madrid Boatshow. The show ran for 5 days and visitors numbers were a very encouraging 35,000 according to the organisers.
Boatshed BVI launch
Today at the Miami Boat Show we met up with Adam Rhodes (who along with his business partner) is launching Boatshed in the British Virgin Islands (BVIs).
The weather is hot, the boats are hotter and you can watch it all shortly thanks to the Boatshed.com Camera Crew!
The last day of the Miami Boat Show and the team have been out on a 49 foot Hustler powerboat to see how fast 70 miles an hour really is on the water. We can report, 70mph is fast and furious and addictive. The boat is powered by 3 x Yanmar 480 turbo diesels and has a ZF gearbox with Fabio Buzzi surface drives. This is one mean machine - a leisure boat with racing performance.
It was praise ahoy for all of the Boatshed.com brokers at this year's European Conference held at HQ. With prizes for best broker, best photographs and best marketing stunt handed out along with workshops, presentations and some seriously funky filming, everyone that attended the event agreed it had been a great day.
Snow way dude!
Pirates take over the City of Tampa.
Chicago Boat Show
We've had the Boatshed.com Press Team out and about capturing some of the atmosphere from the Miami Boat Show, catching up with some of the guys from Boatshed USA and generally seeing how many fun things we can find at this enormous show.
The London Boat Show is on, Boatshed.com is out in force and we have already made sure we have visited the largest boat on display, had a hug with the famous announcer and even taken over somebody else's champagne bar to hold an impromptu Fizz @ Five session.
It's 2008 and as we all struggle back into work, rueing the day we decided that an 18lb turkey was going to be okay for the three of us and wondering how we are going to get the pine needles out of the modelling clay, Boatshed.com wanted quickly to look back over the last 12 months. Partly this is self indulgent because we have fitted an awful lot in, but mostly this retrospective is to show you quite how much we manage to pack into our little year. And 2008 is going to be even busier.
So in time honoured Boatshed.com fashion, the teams from Boatshed Cowes, Hamble and Communications took a spin on the Vitech for a Christmas celebration in the Solent. We were helping her owners to exercise the engines and Boatshed.com never shirk from responsibilities such as these.
Boatshed.com has done it again! And this time we managed to sell a boat in what must be a record 48 hours.
As if it wasn't enough becoming a Boatshed broker, running your own business, meeting new and interesting people every day and getting a chance to view, document and understand boats from all over the world, now it seems that Boatshed brokers can also expect praise and laudations to be heaped upon them (presuming they do a good job of course!)
Chris Ellison, the infamous DI Burnside from The Bill and more recently an Eastenders character as well, is also officially one of Boatshed's biggest fans.
Boatshed.com has decided to shake up the exhibitors at the Earls Court Boat Show with a little bit of fun because that is what we do best (as well as selling boats of course).
There have been mountain climbing exploits, sailing-legends-in-the-making meetings, plenty of chatting and lots of happy Boatshed.com customers on Day 4 of the Earls Court Boat Show.
Boatshed took to the depths of the dive pool today to prove that we really will go to any lengths and depths to shout about our service.
