Dave Mayhew - FLIBS


Dave Mayhew, president of The Boat Warehouse, was in the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show spending time in both the Four Winns display and in the Jeanneau Prestige exhibit where we grabbed a picture of him in front of their fabulous new Prestige 680. Mayhew may be showing more of the exciting Prestige models at the Toronto International Boat Show this coming January, 2016.

Look for a full review of the Prestige 680 in a future issue of Canadian Yachting magazine.
