With busy work and home lives, many MarineMax owners enjoy the convenience of not having to plan. Others take advantage of Getaways!® to places that they would find too challenging to go alone. An example would be MarineMax Clearwater’s 2-week long Bahamas Getaways!® in June, which travels from Clearwater to the Florida Keys and on to the Exuma islands and resorts with many planned events and a stop at Bimini before returning to Clearwater.
“It is a great opportunity to meet boaters that have the same interest in exploring and using their boats,” explains Collin Heimensen, MarineMax Clearwater Sales Manager, who lead last year’s Bahamas Getaways!®. “Many new friendships were forged and promises made to return on this year’s trip."
An example of a typical weekend Getaways!® would be the MarineMax Lake Ozark Weekend at Old Kinderhook Getaways!® in early October. They depart on Friday afternoon with docktails at 7 p.m. at Old Kinderhook Marina. Boaters are encouraged to use all the resort amenities, play golf, tennis, relax at the pool and spend some quality time at the spa. They cruise home after Sunday breakfast.
Another weekend Getaways!® is the MarineMax journey to the “Heart and Soul" of the Chesapeake Bay, on the St. Michaels Getaways!® in September.
There are many day-away opportunities that our trailer and smaller boat owners can join. One is the Sport Boat Lunch Cruise Getaways!® that MarineMax Wrightsville Beach hosts in April. They treat their customers to a beautiful day on the water with a scenic trip through Downtown Wilmington and lunch at Elijah’s, returning to Wrightsville Beach that evening.
In the winter, many northern MarineMax stores hold Changes In Latitudes Getaways!®. These are week-long trips to the British Virgin Islands in partnership with MarineMax Vacations. Guests spend six nights aboard one of the luxury catamarans that are available in the MarineMax Vacations Fleet. With amazing islands to discover, crystal blue waters to cruise and the warm Caribbean breezes to enjoy, it is a phenomenal experience.
There are hundreds of MarineMax Getaways!® throughout the year and MarineMax owners can join up with any MarineMax event.
