Garmin serves five primary business units, including automotive, aviation, fitness, marine, and outdoor recreation. Garmin’s marine portfolio includes some of the industry’s most sophisticated chartplotters and touchscreen multifunction displays, sonar, high-Deep Impact Updated Logodefinition radar, autopilot, high-resolution mapping, sailing instrumentation and other products and services that are known for innovation, reliability, and ease-of-use.

KEY WEST – Boats Direct USA is front and center this weekend as the 34th Annual Key West World Championships unfold in Key West.

Boats Direct USA is the on-air title sponsor for this spectacular offshore powerboat racing event, with Sports Radio 1600 WKWF broadcasting live from the BDUSA.com booth throughout the weekend, said Rick Lopez, manager of Florida Keys Media.

Boats Direct USA owners Mark and Eileen Fischer are huge supporters of the event, and avid boaters themselves. Boats Direct USA is Keys-based, with its showroom in Key Largo. The Fischers acquired Deep Impact Boats in August.

“This is one of my favorite events every year,” Mark Fischer said. Fischer has driven medical boats,transport boats, and pace boats for the high-profile event. “Whatever they need, I am always willing to help out.”

Featured during the play-by-play broadcast is the voice of offshore powerboat racing — Stan Lane, along with Lopez.

This amazing event, which draws thousands of people to the Keys, includes three days of high-adrenalin racing, with three races scheduled per day. The first day, Nov. 5th, included a frightening crash involving the J.D. Byrider Team’s Superboat Vee raceboat. The boat rolled several times, and one of the team members was hospitalized.

The races were packed with all sorts of chills, thrills and excitement.

The thrilling event continued with a second day of racing on Friday, November 7. The third and final day of racing is Sunday, November 9th, with an awards ceremony planned from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Marriott Beachside Hotel in Key West.Deep Impact Updated Logo

“This is a fun, crazy weekend,” Lopez said. “The thing people don’t realize is that the financial impact of the powerboat races is greater than what Fantasy Fest does. These race teams are here all week and they spend money here all week.” Fantasy Fest is an annual, adult-themed party in October.

“(The powerboat races) have probably the largest the financial impact on the city of Key West for the entire year,” Lopez added. Going on simultaneously is the Key West Poker Run, put on by the Florida Powerboat Club. That event also draws big-spending crowds to Key West.

Boats Direct USA Hires Marc Jacob as New Sales Manager

Boats Direct USA Sales Manager Marc Jacob

Boats Direct USA Sales Manager Marc Jacob

In an effort to better serve customers, Boats Direct USA has hired a new sales manager with more than three decades of marine industry experience:

Meet Marc Jacob, the Key Largo-based boat dealer’s newest hand on deck.

Jacob, an Ohio native who lives in Delray Beach, was hired in October for his extensive knowledge of the boating industry. Jacob has worked in every aspect of the marine industry including sales and customer service, for more than 35 years.

“I bring a lot of experience to the table, dealing with manufactures and dealing with clients and knowing what it takes to satisfy the customer,” Jacob said. Jacob’s background includes years as a Florida licensed yacht and ship broker, a sales consultant for Fastboats Marine Group of Pompano Beach, and numerous years as partner/general manager for an Michigan-based marine business.

Jacob joins the Boats Direct USA team at a busy time. Boats Direct USA owner Mark Fischer acquired the trademark and assets of Deep Impact Boats in August, and then moved its boat manufacturing facilities to the same Miami location where Black Water Boats are manufactured.  Fischer is hoping the addition of Deep Impact Boats will also direct  more attention on Black Water Boats, known for their hard-core fishability.

Historically, the Deep Impact brand has been known for its special features, eccentric colors, luxury, high performance and custom build. The same will continue, but the boats will be even better, Fischer has said.

The addition of Deep Impact was just one of several  inventory changes at Boats Direct USA in 2014.

Earlier this year, Boats Direct USA also began selling the affordable NauticStar Boats and upscale Southport Boats, providing Boats Direct USA customers with an even larger and more varied selection of high-quality boats.

The brands hail from different spectrums: NauticStar Boats are extremely affordable and appeal to those seeking family pleasure cruising. Southport Boats are sexy, high performance and well-made.  These top-of-the-line boats suit the serious fisherman but can also be used for pleasure cruising.

Enter Jacob, a licensed Florida yacht and ship salesman and a longtime boat consultant and broker. Fischer hired Jacob to keep Boats Direct USA moving forward.

“I always strive to find the very best people to be resources for my customers,” Fischer said. “Marc Jacob is extremely respected in the industry. With him on our team, we will take Black Water, Deep Impact and all our other boat brands to the next level.”

Jacob said his passion and enthusiasm for boating are undying. He can’t wait to spend time on the water promoting and selling boats, attending poker runs and boat shows and whatever else to get the Boats Direct USA name out there.

“There is a lot more to do. It’s how you handle the customer. I enjoy doing what I am doing now,” Jacob said.  “There are not that many people who can pick a career and do the same thing for 35 years and absolutely love what they do.”

Boats Direct USA Owner Mark Fischer acquired the assets and trademark of Deep Impact Boats in early August. With the expansion, brand recognition of both Black Water Boats and Deep Impact Boats is expected to increase.

Fischer relocated the Deep Impact Boat manufacturing headquarters to Miami, where he currently manufactures Black Water Boats and Ocean Hawk.

Uriarte is excited to take Deep impact to new levels, with an even more increased emphasis on detail, fit and finish becoming an integral part of the Deep Impact brand. Historically, the brand has been known for its special features, eccentric colors, luxury, high performance and custom build. The same will continue, but the boats will be even better, Uriarte said.

“Mark and I are two people who obviously make whatever we are doing work,” Uriarte has said. Fischer and Uriarte have already built success from the ground up, as evidenced by the growing popularity of Black Water Boats and the exponential growth of Fischer’s used car mega-market Off Lease Only.

Owning a boat business that offers the best of both worlds – fishing and luxury center consoles – is the total package, Fischer said.

The boat show will be composed of exhibits at seven locations. The very best location being of course the outside floating dock area at Bahia Mar where Boats Direct USA will have its gorgeous new boats for sale on display. Other exhibits will be at the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center; the Bahia Mar Yachting Center; the Hall of Fame Marina; the Las Olas Marina; The Sails Marina; Pier 66 Marina and the Fort Lauderdale Hilton.

Boats Direct USA To Sponsor “Conch Scramble” Charity Golf Tournament

Imagine whacking a biodegradable golf ball from a waterside dock towards a floating target, all in the name of charity.

Sound like fun? It doesn’t get any crazier than the seventh annual “Conch Scramble,” a September 27 floating golf tournament in Key Largo sponsored in part by Boats Direct USA.

It’s a “par tee” on the water aimed at helping kids. Last year, the event raised $70,000 for charity, said Gina Boilini, who manages the family-owned business Doc’s Diner in Key Largo and helps organize the event.

“It is definitely unique to our wonderful community. It puts a little spin on golf. It incorporates all of our favorites – water, boats and golf,” Boilini said.

Mark and Eileen Fischer on their Deep Impact 399 Poker Run Edition

Mark and Eileen Fischer on their Deep Impact 399 Poker Run Edition

Boats Direct USA owners Mark and Eileen Fischer, who regularly donate to children’s charities, will be participating with their signature orange-and-white Deep Impact 399 Poker Run Edition.

“We love working with local charities in the Keys. This one especially touched Eileen and my hearts as the money raised gets donated to help children,” said Mark Fischer. “It’s all about giving back and I encourage other successful business owners to do the same. At the end of the day it feels wonderful to be in a position where we can help make others’ lives a little bit brighter.”

Boats Direct USA, a factory outlet in Key Largo, is the exclusive distributor/manufacturer of Deep Impact, Black Water Boats and Ocean Hawk.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the Upper Keys Foundation and the Plantation Key School PTA.

The Upper Keys Foundation’s mission is to secure a solution to prevent the Monroe County School Board from eliminating all athletic appropriations. The organization’s goal is to create a service program in which student athletes use their time and energy to serve the community to give back to other causes. The Plantation Key School PTA promotes the welfare and education of students at the school.

The Fischers’ Lamborghini orange-and-white Deep Impact 399 Poker Run Edition will be front and center at the event, as radio personalities Hoebee, host of Afternoon Drive on Sun Classic Rock, and Ricky Lopez, King of Florida Keys radio, broadcast live from the deck of this stunning boat.

sunlogo2014“Boats Direct USA has a very close relationship with the Florida Keys Media Group. They have been amazing partners over the years with our Key Largo Fun Run events that benefitted the Coral Restoration Foundation
and the Florida Keys Wild Bird Center,” Fischer said. “The Conch Scramble will definitely appreciate the exposure to listeners from Key Largo down to Key West being able to tune into the fun that Hoebee and Rick will be having on my Deep Impact Boat. It will be a play-by-play live show throughout the day of fun and excitement with two of Florida Keys’ favorite radio personalities.”

Hoebee and Ricky Lopez said they are honored to be participating.

“Radio is all about tuning in to our local communities and making sure we give coverage to events like this that truly raise awareness for a great cause,” Lopez said. “ Hoebee and I care more about keeping our kids busy with good activities than words can describe, and we are ready to hit some balls off the back of Mark’s gorgeous 399 Deep Impact!”

The event has already stirred interest, with 45 teams composed of four players and a designated driver expected to participate, Boilini said. Each team will display a flag on the boat identifying them as a player.

The floating golf game is composed of nine floating targets positioned at varying distances from the tee. Target placement will range from 30 to 120 yards from each dock.  It doesn’t matter whether you are a golf pro or a duffer. Some players play to win. Some players play for fun. In the end, it’s all for a good cause.

A kickoff party is scheduled from 6 to 10 p.m. on Friday, September 26, 2014 at Mile Marker 80 in Islamorada, Oceanside.

Kickoff, directions and the reading of rules will be at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, the 27th.  Scoring and awards will be at 4 p.m. at the Oceanview & Sports Pub, bayside. A rain date is scheduled for Sunday, September 28th. For more information about the tournament, call 305.481.5857.

The Fischers are avid powerboaters, anglers, car buffs and longtime supporters of community charities, especially those that benefit children.

The Emerald Coast Foundation’s Boat week, which includes the Emerald Coast Poker Run, raised an amazing $150,000 for charity, with 160 boats participating. Proceeds from Boat Week events will be divided among four charities in the Panhandle: the Eleanor J. Johnson Youth Center, which provides after-school activities for needy children; Children in Crisis, Inc., which supports an emergency shelter and related facilities for foster kids; AMI Kids, which provides youth development programs for at-risk kids; and Horizons, a grassroots advocacy organization for citizens of all ages with cognitive, intellectual, and developmental disabilities, and their families.

“Eileen and I are ecstatic that we were able to give back to such an amazing foundation where 100 percent of the proceeds go to helping children,” said Mark Fischer.  “Stu from The Florida Powerboat Club did an absolutely amazing job organizing the event. It’s really awesome to see everyone dig into their pockets to help such a wonderful cause!”

Eileen Fischer got the donations rolling by buying a seat at the final poker table with a donation of $3,000. Then Ms. Fischer won $10,000 at the table and immediately gave it all back to the Poker Run charities. The Fischers bought back in again for the last hand, and contributed an additional $12,500.

Mark and Eileen Fischer are a quiet supporters of good causes:  They have donated numerous cars to needy families, sponsored sports teams and donated generously and regularly to an array of child-related charities. The way they see it, donating to the Emerald Coast Foundation made sense because it combined their love of boating with a great cause.

“We are honored to be involved with the Emerald Coast Charities and we look forward to going to Destin next year to do it again!” Mark Fischer added.

Stu Jones, president of the Florida Powerboat Club, said the Emerald Coast Poker Run just keeps growing.

“This year’s event was a HUGE success for the Emerald Coast Foundation! Not only did we raise more money this year than in years past, but we had a blast doing so,” said Jones, who first got involved with the Poker Run 16 years ago.

“We had approximately 20-30 boats that would enter into the Poker Run event in our humble beginnings,” Jones said. “Once the Emerald Coast Foundation turned over the Poker Run portion of Boat Week to the Florida Powerboat Club, our members quickly embraced the event. You can see by the incredible turnout of 160 registered boats. The event has also been an excellent way to attract new members to the club.”

The event marked the Fischers’ first appearance in their flamboyant orange and white Deep Impact 399 Poker Run Edition since announcing Boats Direct USA’s recent acquisition of Deep Impact boats. Deep Impact will be manufactured at the same Miami factory as Blackwater boats.Deep Impact Updated Logo

Mark Fischer purchased the trademark and assets of Deep Impact in early August, and is in the process of expanding his manufacturing operations to accommodate production of the custom boats known for luxury and performance.

Fischer has been manufacturing Blackwater Boats and Ocean Hawk under the supervision of renowned boat builder Eugenio Uriarte. Fischer has vowed to make Deep Impact even better with Uriarte supervising production. Uriarte’s boats are known for their fit and finish and close attention to detail.

The Fischers have long-admired the Deep Impact brand so they were thrilled to acquire Deep Impact and continue producing the boats under the expertise of Uriarte.  Boats Direct USA, in Key Largo, is the exclusive factory outlet now for Deep Impact and sells both new and used boats.

It’s been a busy few weeks for the Fischers, who also announced the expansion of their used car giant Off Lease Only into Orlando. They plan to open a third dealership in Orlando just miles from Orlando International Airport by November 1, 2014. Off Lease Only is nationally known for its unbeatable prices and gigantic selection of like-new used cars.

The Fischers currently operate two dealerships in Lake Worth and Miami and are in the process of building a huge new Lake Worth facility to accommodate exponential growth in Palm Beach County.  Mark Fischer has big plans for his coming dealership in Orlando as well: Fischer expects to immediately sell 300 cars a month in Orlando and be selling more than 500 cars a month by March 2015. The site includes a sprawling 40-acre stretch that was previously occupied by a rent-a-car agency, situated close to the airport for convenience.
