Shadow Marine’s “Paladin” A Mind-Bender of a Tender Following an impressive introduction at the 2005 Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show, I caught YachtForums member Stan Antrim, the managing director of Shadow Marine, taking pictures of his star attraction as it glided passed by the docks of the 17th Street Marriot. Although we had previously met, he didn’t recognize me in incognito… sporting a baseball cap in the hi-speed direction and the geek-glasses that only the mirror has seen. While he was in the process of snapping a shot, I took the opportunity to sneak up behind him and rattle his cage, exclaiming... “isn’t that boat ugly?” Without so much as a pause, or lowering the camera from his eye, he replied, “I think it’s the most beautiful boat in the world”. That remark effectively sums up Stan’s character. A man who views challenges as opportunities, has a great passion for our industry and is proudly carving a well-earned niche in the same.
