Default The Mercedes boat is now the new Mercedes boat!

Thanks to Victor at Chopper Nation, The Mercedes boat is now Mercedes Benz's official poker run boat! After seeing the Bud Light MTI in Key West, Victor contacted one of his long time friends at Mercedes and told him about the Mercedes boat and the marketing potential it could have. 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!

I would have thought that they (MBusa) would have known about that boat a long time ago Gino! Are you serious that they didn't know about it?

The boat was from Long Island. These guys are from the Southeast region. Crazy as it sounds, the only guy that actually said he knew the boat saw my Ebay listing a few weeks ago!

I'd bet they'd really have liked the old interior, with all of those real MB parts........I know it wasn't all that practical, but it bumped up the wow factor quite a bit.

Congratulations......that's pretty cool. Be sure to let us know where we can see your boat in their marketing.........

Truthfully, they didn't have a complaint. They couldn't believe how many MB parts were in it.
