“For us, FLIBS represents the launch of the winter charter season,” says Jana Sheeder , President of SailAway Yacht Charters and 1-800 Yacht Charters“This is our chance to introduce our clients to the winter season’s best options for Florida yacht charter vacations.  Additionally, many of these yachts will consider relocating to the nearby islands to accept Bahamas yacht charter bookings.”
Among the charter yachts on hand at FLIBS were: 
2009 187 foot #sailboat yacht MONTIGNE 
2010 224 foot Nobiskrug motor yacht SYCARA V
2010 190 foot Trinity super yacht MI SUENO
In addition to the hundreds of yachts on display, Sheeder points out the show is the perfect venue for inspecting and testing the hottest new watertoys.
“If we see a ‘must have’ toy that we feel will enhance the charter experience for our clients, we’ll be the first to promote it to the charter yacht owners.  There is truly something for everyone at FLIBS.”
