Industry Updates II
I hope you and your family continue to do well. Here are some of the most important updates in the Marine Industry right now, and some of the measures taken locally:
Our Nautikos Sunseeker Miami office continues to be closed, and I continue to work remotely from home until further notice.
Remember, if you live out of town and need someone local to check on your yacht or crew feel free to reach out to me.
As of Sunday March 22nd, all public and private marinas are to be closed by ordinance from the Mayor. That includes marine fuel pumps too. There is no restriction on taking your boat out but Coast Guard and Police officers are enforcing the "no groups larger than 10 people" rule. You are also not allowed to raft up next to other vessels.
For those of you asking about traveling to Bahamas, there are now full travel restrictions in place:
No visitor shall be permitted to enter and disembark for any reason including transiting through The Bahamas.
All seaports and airports shall be closed to regional and international seafaring and private boating.
All public beaches, markets and docks will be closed
While we are facing a temporary crisis, we still have clients interested in buying/selling yachts. Please let me know if you want me to look for the latest deals or if you want me to present your vessel to those looking to purchase one. Remember that finance rates are dropping and fuel prices are also decreasing.
If you are interested in purchasing a brand new Sunseeker yacht, the British Pound has weakened against the US Dollar in the last few days, giving you more for your money. Also, due to the potential of an economic slowdown, the factory has issued new incentives to keep sales moving. Let me know and I would love to rerun a quote for you.
I will continue to work from home weekdays and weekends, you can reach me anytime via email, call, text or WhatsApp. Stay safe!
