More than 450 captains and crew passed through The Oasis Lounge on a daily basis during the 2018 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
Year after year this exclusive hospitality lounge gives superyacht captains and crew the opportunity to find a quiet place away from the crowds in order to fully unwind and enjoy their breaks with friends and industry colleagues.
Those registered had the pleasure of stopping in for lunch all five days catered by the local Be Nice Restaurant Group while also being able to check out a free seminar or two, receive a relaxing massage at the spa, enjoy complimentary Wi-Fi courtesy of sponsors Isotropic Networks, sip an afternoon beverage, or simply cool off from the heat from a busy day on the docks.
Golf cart transportation was made available daily for transit from the show docks to the International Swimming Hall of Fame where the Oasis was located.
Title sponsors Bluewater Crew, Charter & Brokerage USA provided the Oasis staff which was made up of individuals seeking out future opportunities onboard.
Even though the show is located in the United States, rugby fans from around the world did not have to miss their favorite pastime. During some downtime on Saturday, crew were able to watch their favorite international rugby teams England vs South Africa battle it out live on the big screen in the Oasis dining room.
Below is an Oasis recap video put together in-kind by Savage Global Marketing:
Reviews based on a post-event survey to the crew stated:
“The best part of the boat show! Great people and service. Thank you so much to be the literal Oasis!!!”
“Honestly- I really can’t thank you guys enough. As a captain with a big crew in the show - WOW - it helped me so much. I could easily rotate out people to get a break and keep them fresh as well as fed! We all had a great time there as well - staff was super awesome. It was great to reconnect with friends and run into vendors. Some of these people are often only at the other end of phone or email - awesome to put a name with the face and get to know them better.”
“We sincerely appreciate the effort that was put into the Oasis Lounge. It was a welcome reprieve from the chaos of the boat show. Thank you for a job well done.”
We thank everyone for joining us, all of our fantastic 2018 sponsors/partners and look forward to providing you with another Oasis in 2019. For more information and resources on the 2018 Oasis, please visit the following:
