Last week, I attended an exlusive Boat Show event at Carnegie Abbey Club in Portsmouth, RI. Friday brought a perfect hot summer evening giving our local dealer, Boston Yachts a chance to exhibit their fleet of Sabre and Back Cove Motor yachts, with 5 models shown. The Back Cove 29 and 33 sitting next to the Sabre 34 and 42 Express models were backed up by our flagship of the 52 Salon Express. From the dock, we could see many people up on the hill enjoying cocktails and hors d’oeuvres in the tent. A perfect summer evening in Rhode Island. Having the vantage point of looking over this fleet of stand-outs, the crowd soon began trickling down the dock to get onboard. This not being a traditional boat show, we had many yachting newcombers who were amazed at the interiors of these boats that they had been looking at from above. Carnegie Abbey had arranged for a blessing of the fleet, and we all were happy to see a memebr of the chuch adorned in robes come down to give his blessing on these vessels and for whomever is fortunate enough to step aboard.
