Between walking around the Super Boat International dry pits and the Florida Powerboat Club’s poker run village, any performance boat enthusiast would be in heaven this week in Key West, Fla.
After spending a few hours today perusing the displays in the poker run village, this has to be one the best villages Stu Jones and his FPC team have put together yet. From the impressive Chief Performance rig, the life-of-the-party Cigarette/Pier 57/Marine Technology Inc. trailer, the new mobile marketing vehicle from Mercury Racing and the polished Ilmor Marine display, the village is a like boat show just for powerboaters.
Along with boats from Statement Marine, Sunsation Boats, Outerlimits Powerboats, Formula Boats and more, one of the main highlights of the village is the new Hardin Marine trailer, which is loaded with product from the Palm Coast, Fla., company. Scott Price, one of the owners of the company, was proud to show off the new rig that made its debut in the village.
Price said the marketing truck, which will be in attendance at a variety of shows, poker runs and more next year and beyond, will not only feature a variety of performance-boat products, but it will also be a support vehicle for customers who need additional parts in a hurry.
