We're excited about the Suncoast Boat Show and all the great models you will see from Boston Whaler, Sea Ray, Galeon and Aviara! Speaking of Aviara, we sit down with Jeremiah Long, Sales Consultant at MarineMax Sarasota. He scopes how the AV40 extends days on the water. Twin fold-down terraces convert into additional deck space to accommodate all the people you care about most even if that's 23 of your closest friends! Hear more about how you can host a party from the premium helm, cook a gourmet meal, rest in the cabin, swim off the submersible platform, or just take in the beauty of the water from the convertible barstool-style seating – the AV40 can handle it all – on the same day.
