New Products for Your Boating Lifestyle!

New Products for Your Boating Lifestyle! Sep 28, 2022
Showfloor From Catwalk Web 25

Our friends at Martin Flory Group have provided a special report on new boating products that were to be displayed at IBEX, but unfortunately, Hurricane Ian has forced the cancellation of the show!

The cancellation of IBEX means we’ll miss seeing those of you who would normally be in the aisles this week, and helping Martin Flory Group celebrate our 60th anniversary in person.

Attention is now on Florida. We hope everyone who needed to leave IBEX has done so successfully. May those living in danger zones be safe.

On behalf of our clients exhibiting at IBEX, below is a summary of new products you would have seen, plus some tried-and-true problem-solvers.

As for the Martin Flory Group team, we will be at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (Oct 26-30) and at METSTRADE in Amsterdam (Nov 15-17) and hope to see you there.

LIQUI MOLY – Gas Additive Now for Bigger Boats

Now available in a larger size for bigger boats, it keeps fuel fresh for months and provides long-term protection against fuel aging and oxidation-related problems.
