MarineMax Announces a New Ocean Alexander 100 Motoryacht Owner

CLEARWATER, Fla., (December 10, 2015) – MarineMax announced today that they have a new Ocean Alexander 100 Motoryacht owner. This model was first introduced to the public at the 2014 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show where The Ocean Alexander 100 received a lot of attention and acclaim by yacht enthusiasts and critics from around the world.

“After almost one year of extensive research comparing competitive models, my clients chose the Ocean Alexander 100 Motoryacht for their family,” said James Corts, MarineMax Sales Consultant. “The fully enclosed Skylounge was the deciding factor, they really liked that they could operate the vessel in comfort no matter what the weather brings. This configuration also frees up space on the main deck for a forward lounge and desk area.”

The Ocean Alexander 100 is designed by Evan K. Marshall as part of the highly successful Ocean Alexander full-beam master stateroom arrangement with his-and-her heads. The forward VIP stateroom and two guest staterooms each have en-suite heads and plenty of storage. The living space on the main deck affords a dining table that seats eight and massive seating areas for socializing. The galley is a stand-out in its class with the space and professional appliances for a chef to prepare true gourmet meals.

Ocean Alexander uses inventive aluminum-beam engineering and unidirectional carbon fiber to add exceptional strength without adding weight. This allowed them to design the 100 with the most massive window views and a living space usually found only in megayachts.

“My clients intend to make extensive use of their new Ocean Alexander 100,” added Corts. “With the highly efficient hull and 4,000 gallon fuel capacity, they will be able to reach distant ports in luxurious comfort and style.”

MarineMax Panama City Beach to Hold Free Fishing Seminar – Trout and Winter Fishing

Trout Fishing
PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla., (November 30, 2015) – MarineMax Panama City Beach announced today that they will be hosting a free seminar on targeting and landing trout and other area bay and gulf winter species, December 12, 2015, at 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. The “Trout and Winter Fishing on Our Bays and Gulf” seminar will be held at MarineMax Panama City Beach in a classroom setting.

“Join us for our last free seminar of this season. Our resident instructor Tom Putnam, Owner of Half-Hitch Tackle Stores, will teach the techniques, methodology and proper tackle for fishing to successfully catch trout and other winter species,” said seminar host Bob Fowler, Sales Consultant and Broker at MarineMax Panama City Beach. “Tom will share his trade secrets to catching winter trout and other great fish on our beautiful Panhandle Bays and Gulf.”

Trout and other species can be caught in the Panama City Beach area all year. However, as the water cools the populations of fish move to the warmer waters inshore. Trout and other fish species are cold-blooded and their body temperatures stay around the same as the water that they swim in, which factors into slowing their metabolism. Temperate waters in the bays and rivers around the Panama City are warmer and provide sanctuary; good news for local fishermen looking to catch trout.

“Having the proper tackle and knowing how, where and when to find trout and winter species will give you a great advantage. That is what this seminar is all about,” added Fowler

Each participant will receive free instructional sheets and a valuable Half-Hitch Discount Coupon and, as usual, your host Bob Fowler will be providing the ‘half-time entertainment’ with his professional vocal styling.
