Boating is not just an aspect of our job, it is incorporated into our daily lives. One of the reasons we work so hard is that we are passionate about the boating lifestyle and everything it provides. We’d like to share some of those things with you; below are Sarasota Yacht & Ship’s top 10 reasons to love boating:
(1) Connects You with Family
One of the great things about being out on the water with family is the emphasis on personal relationships. There’s no tv, video games for the kids, or other daily clutter that can widen the gap between our connections with one another.
(2) Brings Fun & Adventure
Boating will push you to broaden your horizons and travel. It brings you a sense of adventure and gets you to do things you would otherwise never do.
(3) Eliminates Stress
Whether you work in an office, at home or on the moon we can all agree that work can be stressful. Boating is like a mini-vacation from all the deadlines, meetings & endless TPS reports. It provides freedom, independence & empowerment in a way no land-dwelling activity can provide.
(4) It’s the Best Way to Watch a Sunset
First comes boating, then comes romance! We all know the best sunsets are seen over the ocean.
(5) Great Way to Exercise
With boating comes boat toys! Waterskiing, wakeboarding, kayaking, snorkeling, etc are all fun and aerobic activities that are a great, healthy ways to spend time with family and friends.
(6) Provides Food
The ocean grows a delicious menu for us to feast on. Fishing is a fun, yet practical activity that can pay off big time! With a little patience and skill you can catch dinner for the whole family.
(7) Allows You to Meet New People
Getting involved in your local boating community is a great way to socialize with new people. Taking your boat out on events like dinner cruises and weekend cruising Rendezvous with your local marinas, yacht clubs, and brokerages companies (like us 🙂 ) is a great way to make new friends.
(8) Connects You with Nature
If you live in a crowded city, the expression “a breath of fresh air” may just be that…an expression. With all of our man-made comforts and utilities, it takes considerable effort to connect with Mother Earth these days. But once you do, you may find yourself wondering how you ever lived without her. Boating can bestow unto you the power of the Ocean (which should never be underestimated), giving you a humbling and grateful perspective on life. This can do amazing things for the spirit!
(9) Connects You with Marine Life
Seeing animals in the wild can be an incredible experience. Sometimes Sea World just doesn’t cut it. Learn to snorkel or scuba dive off your boat and let our underwater world become your own backyard.
(10) Improves Your Quality of Life
Boating will improve your quality of life through all of the reasons mentioned above and many many more. These are only just a few!
Believing in what you sell makes the job so much more rewarding. Nothing is better than to hear stories and see photos of our clients’ newest boating adventures. If you feel like you have a continual case of Mondays, looking to meet new friends, get in-touch with nature or re-connect with the family, we think boating may be just what you’re searching for.
