          BOATS + BOATSHOWS + YACHTS + CHARTERS in Florida +

          In Florida, the boating capital of the world,? the British are significantly involved in all aspects of the marine and sailing business.?? No surprise–we are an island maritime seafaring nation with [once!] the greatest navy in the world.??The Tony Blair government decimated our mighty navy resources, but our love of the sea remains. There is not a Florida yacht brokerage here without at least one British broker, several known personally to me. ? Hence, Florida attracts British sailors in huge numbers. You’ll find British salesmen at most Florida yacht brokerages.? You’ll find British owners of boats in all Florida ports. British captains and crews are common on yachts chartered out of Florida. ?British sailing instructors abound in South Florida. Brits are marine surveyors, in the marine insurance industry and all aspects of the yacht brokerage and delivery business.? ?Ft.Lauderdale, host to probably the world’s largest boat show every October, is the epicentre for Brits in the boating biz.? Many of them gather at Waxy O’Connor’s Pub [954] 525-9299 on SE 17th Causeway, to swap sailing tales and network. In Ft.Lauderdale you find droves of marine support businesses and crew placement agencies, many with British staff.
