Buying a boat, be it a small runabout or a mega yacht, should be a lifestyle experience. Most people who are true "boating lifestyle" enthusiasts have a passion and zeal for being on the water and everything that goes along with it. The wind, the sun, the freedom, the beauty, the fun, and the sport are all things that go along with the enjoyment and passion of owning a boat.

The boating trends moving forward appear to be positive and on an upward swing. In Florida alone, the projected population increase, number of boats in Florida, and frequency of boating trips are all on the rise. 

Marc Harris, CEO of Marcali Yacht Brokerage believes the future is looking bright. "Sales numbers are trending upward. Although valuations haven't increased dramatically, the overall maritime economy appears to be getting healthier".
