Wine Waves and Weather


MarineMax Dallas had been planning a Yacht Expo with a Wine and Waves Party for several months only to wake up to a drenching rain. Although they postponed the Yacht Expo until the following week, all the refreshments and vendors were ready so they pressed ahead with the Wine and Waves Party at the Pier 121 Marina.

The featured wines were fine wines from New Zealand, Nobilo Icon Sauvignon Blanc, Nobilo Icon Pinot Noir and Nobilo Regional Sauvignon Blanc. Fabulous hors d’oeuvres were prepared and served by Wet Bar and Grill and Boardwalk Maserati – Ferrari brought some of their most amazing luxury sport car models.

Despite the bad weather earlier in the day, over 120 guests enjoyed viewing the latest Sea Ray and Meridian Yachts. As the evening wore on the gathering got more festive with light strings illuminating the scene from overhead. Electric grill manufacturer, Kenyon, had a demo station where they prepared several dishes for folks to sample.

During the party, MarineMax had planned on christening a customer’s new Sea Ray 510 Fly. The customer requested fireworks, however, they were told it probably would not be possible. MarineMax Sales Consultant Brendan Bailey said they were obviously disappointed.

However, the MarineMax team had put together a care package full of boating accessories which was presented to them during the christening. The whole crowed toasted the family with champagne and as if to rub salt in the wound, Bailey set off a single small rocket.


MarineMax General Manager, Tyler Choyke admonished him announcing through the PA system, “You know Brendan, I just moved here from Florida and I’ve always been told that things are bigger in Texas. And you call that fireworks?”

At that very moment, a large, surprise display of professional fireworks began to blast into the night sky. Everyone lit up with applause and astonishment. The fireworks continued for more than 5 minutes to everyone’s amusement, and particularly, delighting the new Sea Ray 510 Fly owners.


The MarineMax Dallas Wine and Waves Party was a huge success and reflects the MarineMax customer-centric difference that all MarineMax stores strive for, assisting our customers in enjoying the best of the pleasure boating lifestyle with the highest customer satisfaction throughout the total ownership experience.
