Pretty cool deal Gino...when the boat pics were first posted I sent some over to my MB dealer and asked them why they didn't have one...lol...should be interesting to see how they use it in the marketing.

They asked how soon could we could have the boat to them to see. Pulled into the parking lot to have 80 Mercedes people come down to look the boat over. They said it was the most unique piece of marketing they have ever seen. We made the intitial deal in the parking lot. They were so excited to get started they asked if I could leave the boat with them for a couple of days to get some marketing stuff done. I am looking forward to a great year working with Mercedes!

Wow this is fantastic news! Sponsors for poker runs.

Congrats on the deal and Good Luck!

Great news, Gino... congrats. Hopefully, this is the start of a trend. I, too, am surprised it took so long- this is such a primo market.
