SOUTHWEST FLORIDA YACHTS ANNIVERSARY PROMO
As this company's Press Release says: "A 30-year anniversary is a very big deal in the recreational boating industry." We agree, as we are now planning publication of our 30th edition of the FCD!
Anticipating its big Three-Oh, Southwest Florida Yachts announced a three-year "Berth Day" party culminating in 2014.
Barb Hansen, co-owner and manager, said the premiere chartering firm will give charter customers free cruising days in 2012,2013 and 1014 on all power and sailing vessels.
Hansen said it works like this: if you set up a three-days or longer cruise between December 15 and April 30 you'll get one free cruising day. That's the winter season. And if you cruise in the summer season you'll get two free cruising days.
