A group of Palm Beach owners spent six glorious days traversing the Bahamas for the second-annual Palm Beach Owners Rendezvous. The flotilla of Palm Beach yachts—which ranged from a PB42 to a PB55—departed Fort Lauderdale for Bimini on April 19. Once in Bimini, the group rented golf carts for a tour of the tropical island and enjoyed a relaxing dinner at Resorts World Bimini. The following day, they headed Atlantis in Nassau, despite exceptionally rough conditions. “Most boats would not have been able to make the trip,” said Palm Beach Yacht Specialist Carvey Iannuzzi, “but every Palm Beach cruised right through with no issues.”
Next, the group cruised to Highborn Cay, where idyllic scenery and picture-perfect weather welcomed them. Half of the attendees fished for mahi mahi (and ended up catching enough to feed the entire group Saturday night, with 50 extra pounds to take home). The other half went sightseeing onboard _At Ease_, a Palm Beach 55. Stops included Great Island, Staniel Cay, Thunderball Cave (famous from a James Bond movie) and Big Major, an island where visitors can mingle with friendly pigs that wander about in the sand and water.
The Palm Beach Owners Rendezvous came to an end with new friendships formed, memories made, bellies full of island food and drink, and plans for next year’s adventure.
