Another Great Captiva Island Rendesvous

We just returned from an awesome weekend with clients and friends at our annual Captiva Island cruising Rendezvous to the beautiful South Seas Resort & Plantation. This might have been one of our best years yet!

We juggled our time between cruising, golfing, fishing, beaching, and pooling (Ok, I made up that last word, but you get the idea- it was a great weekend!)

Overall the atmosphere was relaxed, the weather was perfect and the company was great. It’s always a pleasure to turn our clients into friends through quality time spent out on the water.  Below are some highlights of the trip (click here to see the complete photo album).

To this year’s guests we had a wonderful time and hope you all return next year, along with fresh new faces.

Viva Captiva 2012!

“Honey, Let’s Buy A Boat”

Lynn and Jackie Millikin, the newest members to our sales team, are avid boaters and 100 Ton Master Captains with Towing Certification. They have worked in the boating industry since 2003 as Brokers, Delivery Captains, Boating Instructors and Boat Show Manufacturing Reps. They have owned many different types and sizes of boats/yachts and cruised from the Northern Chesapeake to St. Petersburg.

Since catching the ‘boating bug’ in 2003, they have piloted their own boats over 20,000 miles. Their biggest adventure: The Great American Loop.

Sometimes you never know when a thought or a dream starts to develop but that is not the case for our Great Loop Adventure. We were sitting on the docks one weekend at an impromptu “dock tails” party discussing different peoples’ ideas of what was their boating adventure dream. Jackie and I talked about cruising the East Coast and Bahamas and one person talked about the Great Loop. As we discussed what made up the Great Loop, he handed me the book, Honey Let’s Buy A Boat, by Ron and Eva Stab. Like many others who read the book, I was totally captured by the adventure. -Lynn, 2007

You can read about their many travel adventures on their blog,, which chronicles their trip around the Great American Loop along with more current boating adventures in the Bahamas Islands and other parts of the world.
We love to share our passion for boating with both new and experienced boaters. We strive to help our clients sell their boat or find the right boat and then to help them feel comfortable in operating it. We are excited about being part of the Sarasota Yacht and Ship Team
