• THE BOAT SHOW LIVES ON WITH THE MIAMI BOAT SHOW POKER RUN

    “If it don’t go Chrome it” and if it goes “Show it “

    One of the biggest challenges for the builders and dealers who display at the show is to get ready for Florida Powerboat Clubs Miami Boat Show Poker Run. When the boat show closes Monday night some of the builders have to work feverously to get the boats out the door to the water and down to the Biscayne Bay Marriott in time for the departure Thursday Morning. Some builders like Dave's Custom Boats didn’t have that problem since their new M41 is already in the water at the hotel marina. In fact the days between the show and the run give these guys a little time to relax in Miami and enjoy the Miami Boating lifestyle without the herd of about 70 other boats that will be participated on this year’s run.

    The Miami Boat Show Poker run is not the biggest, the venue may not be the best, and the dock/rafting situation is tight. But as far as I am concerned if you are a player in this world then this is an event you can’t afford to miss, this is where all the new boats are splashed and if it’s real it runs, if it’s just boat show bling it doesn’t come.

    “If it don’t go Chrome it” and if it goes “Show it “. If I was a new buyer I would almost insist the delivery of my new ride was to include that the boat be ready to run on the Miami Boat Show Poker Run. This is where you can see it all, inside protected waters, real offshore conditions and a destination venue that keeps everyone at one place to swap stories, tell lies and then be forced to prove them offshore or walk away

    On this year’s run we saw show boats from Statement, Cigarette, MTI, Formula, Skater, and Nor-Tech. All the new owners had the double pleasure of showing their new boats off at the show and then running them on one of the best boating events of the year.
