I hope this first quarter newsletter update finds the New Year treating all of you extremely well with a great start to your 2016.  The yacht business has  stayed steady right through the Holidays and into the new year, a great sign for the upcoming season.  New vessel sales have been as strong as ever with backorder logs building. Fortunately Galati Yacht Sales has stayed ahead of the curve with hot selling new Viking custom build orders placed well in advance and are now in stock and ready for the soon to be Spring and Summer season ahead.  With one our largest Trade Shows of the year the Miami International Boat Show kicking off next week, February 11th-15th, it will continue to spur market activity, for buyers and sellers alike.  If you plan on attending please come visit me at the Viking Yachts Display & Galati Yachts Display on Collins Avenue at the 4800 block, Miami Beachthere are no tickets required for any of the displays on Collins Ave, however, should you like to visit the Convention Center or the new NMMA Miami Marine Stadium Display on Virginia Key, I will have tickets present with me for you at the show.  I look forward catching up and seeing you there.  Aside from Viking's complete line up of all their latest new product including the first debuts of the 80 Enclosed Bridge and 48 Open Bridge Convertible,Galati will have a superb line up of new and pre-owned Viking's and additional product available on site

With this being said, in order to be seeking blue water adventures, fun and or tournament fishing in a pre-owned vessel by early spring, a contracted purchase price would need to be negotiated, trial run, mechanical and hull survey, acceptance of vessel and closing, along possible financing secured as well as insurance in place and lastly rigging the vessel to your needs.  All of which would take at least one month from the time an agreement is reached between buyer and seller.  I am here to guide andwalk you through the process every step of the way in conjunction with excellent reliable sources I have used for over 20 years to help you get successfully to your final goal of enjoying quality time on the water in the right vessel for you and your family.  Proper rigging is also a very important process to make sure the vessel is set up for your personal use and style, I will assist you with the best venders in the business to dress out your new ride as needed.  I have included a few of my choice turn-key well-appointed and rigged pre-owed Viking's currently on the market ready for survey and delivery forthe season ahead.  I look forward to seeing you on the water soon.

Galati Sponsored Blue Marlin Satellite Tag Pops Off

On July 10, 2015, the second day of the Bermuda Big Game Classic, a 150lb Blue Marlin was caught by Sharyn Craig aboard the 82’ Viking “Amarula Sun.” This healthy Blue Marlin was tagged with an IGFA satellite tag sponsored by Carmine Galati of Galati Yacht Sales.  This tag was entered into the IGFA Hamilton, Bermuda 2015 Race.



On November 18, 2015, 131 days after the satellite tag was deployed it popped up. The tag popped up near Cape Verde, a staggering 2,293nm away from its original tag location in Bermuda.  The Blue Marlin spent the rest of July swimming the waters near Bermuda before beginning its nearly two-month journey across the Atlantic. The Blue Marlin arrived near the waters of Cape Verde in the beginning of October. From then on the Blue Marlin stayed in the waters around Cape Verde until the tag popped off on November 18th.



Currently the Galati Yacht Sales tag is in first place for the IGFA Hamilton, Bermuda 2015 Race.



The information provided by these satellite tags is extremely helpful in learning the migration routes of billfish. From this data scientist are able to have a better understanding of the migratory behaviors of billfish and the underlying oceanic features that help shape the connectivity the billfish populations across the globe. Together this information is used to help in the international conservation measures for marlin around the world.

On shore, a large tent encompassed a full bar, DJ, gourmet hors d’oeuvres and vendors of all types.

Joining Princess was many vendors including Seakeeper, Canvas Designers, Garmin and Provident Jewelry just to name a few. 


The entertainment for the night was DJ Timothee Lovelock.  His music set the mood for socialconversation.  Later in the evening he picked up the tempo and that made everyone’s toes tap! The true show began when Timothee stood on the table and lit his violin on fire while playing to many different genres of music.


Saturday morning guests gathered for brunch under the tent and more private showings of the lineup. 


A big thank you to Princess Yachts and everyone that attended the event. It was a successful weekend and everyone had a fabulous time!

New Princess 75 to Debut at London Boat Show

Princess has made several enhancements to the flybridge layout.

The forward J-shaped seating to starboard has been enlarged and now converts to a sunbed while the forward port side seating as been reconfigured to a single lounger and the wetbar has been restyled.

In the main deck salon, a new crockery unit has been integrated forward of the starboard seating while on the lower deck the owner’s bathroom has been redesigned to improve ease of movement. The toilet has been relocated to the aft bulkhead and can be optionally specified as a combination toilet and bidet.

The first 75 Motor Yacht bound for the US will finish production in August and will make her US debut at the 2016 Ft. Lauderdale Boat Show.

Her elegant exterior styling conceals a voluminous interior and her latest modified deep-V hull will enable her to plane early and offer a wide range of efficient cruising speeds under various conditions.

Natural light flows into the main deck salon through extended window lines and a unique full-height window on the port side makes the free standing dining area a spectacular space to entertain. Sliding glass panels sepa

rate the galley from the open-plan living space. Furthermore, the stunning contemporary design of the salon opens to the well-equipped cockpit via flush sliding patio doors providing a spacious single entertaining area.

All three guest cabins forward on the lower deck are en-suite whilst a dedicated staircase leads to the owner’s stateroom amidships via a private lobby and features a dressing area, en-suite bathroom, and 46” TV. The crew enjoys natural light in the comfortable twin cabin and they’ve managed to fit-out the crew lobby with an optional microwave and dedicated refrigerator.
