MarineMax names BVI vacation winner

MarineMax was a prominent exhibitor at the recent 2011 St. Petersburg Power & Sailboat Show, where the boat retailer held a raffle for a seven-day, six-night, self-skippered yacht charter vacation in the British Virgin Islands.

The winner, Nancy Conley of Apollo Beach, is a real estate agent specializing in waterfront properties who has been a boater for 25 years and is dockmaster at her waterfront community.

"I came to the St. Pete boat show to see what's new and exciting in the boating world," Conley said. "What could be more exciting than winning this amazing island charter vacation?"

Conley will meet the new luxury MarineMax 413 sailing monohull in Tortola and cruise the crystal-clear waters of the British Virgin Islands. The MarineMax 413 is 40 feet, has three cabins and is equipped with shore-power air conditioning, a water maker, a television and other amenities.

"Ms. Conley was very surprised when I called, and I think she initially thought it was a joke," MarineMax Charter & Boat Club division vice president Raul Bermudez said. "We are looking forward to her experiencing the MarineMax Vacations difference."
