    The 2008 FLIBS Post Boat Show Boat Parade


    Although FLIBS is over, the day after the show proves just as exciting for yachting buffs as the parade of vessels makes its way out of the show venues and to points near and far. Carl and I were going to present this segment in a locked thread, offering banterings and insights to the floating palaces, just as we did on the docks while watching the event. But why keep that fun to ourselves? So we are offering a plethora of parade photos and invite our members to ask questions, add quips, make comments and enjoy the photo journalism that YF can bring you.

    So, if you didn’t make it to FLIBS, checkout our live coverage thread (as well as the Boat Show Babes thread coming soon). And if you have never experienced the “parade”, get ready ‘cause we took a ton of pictures. YachtForums is proud to be the only medium offering this extensive coverage of FLIBS, through literary prowess, photo-opportunistic eyes and professional comments from the entire YF team.

    The morning started gray and overcast, but the haze burned off after a few hours, offering up blue skies. We started on the 17th St Causeway for a few overhead shots, then headed to Pier 66 for a better position (as well as a few cold cocktails. Hey, it was a parade, after all).

    Yachts at the Pier 66 brokerage area.

    There were enough Viking Yachts to shake a stick at, of varying sizes, styles and colors.

    I know, I know, another Viking. This one is the 74' enclosed bridge model, that is also doing double duty as...

    ...the transporter for the show displays.

    M/Y Makara is a Knight&Carver build

    Last chance for seing these two advertised as candidates. For the flip side of the sails, see the Live Coverage thread.

    Okay, last Viking, I promise. Nice blue hull.
