Tilghman IslandOne of the best and true sources of experience is word of mouth from people you can trust; that’s why we asked our staff here at Sterling Acceptance what their favorite places to go boating were. We would like to pass their feedback on to you, and hope you can make it out to enjoy these wonderful destinations, as much as we do! In this article, you will find a few of our owner’s favorite places to visit, and our Florida West Coast Sales Manager, Susan Cunningham’s recommendations. 

First we will start out with one of the top picks from our owners, Karen & Dave Trostle. They do most of their boating in the Maryland area, and one of their favorite places to visit is Tilghman Island, located at 38°42′32″N76°20′6″W. This small town offers a charming, slow pace atmosphere, sure to help you relax while enjoying the “old-time” Eastern Shore living experience. Filled with excellent waterfront dining, lighthouse tours, charters, shopping, and museums, Tilghman Island makes for a great family get away. Karen & Dave enjoy the trip so much, they scheduled our annual company boat outing here in August 2015 and our staff loved exploring the small town with beautiful views!

Hopetown HarborMoving south down the East Coast, our Florida West Coast Sales Manager, Susan Cunningham, shares a few of her favorite and most memorable destinations. Here is what Susan has to say:

“My first true cruising experience after moving to Florida, and the most memorable, was in the Abacos and the surrounding islands of the Bahamas. Hopetown Harbor on Long Island was home base for exploring Long Island, Green Turtle, Man-O-War, Allens-Pensacola and Great Guana Cays. The picturesque small town where no vehicles were allowed, with the exception of the fire truck, was quaint, safe and delightful. My favorite T-shirt read 'In case of fire, get key from Vernon’s Grocery'. Long Island, being on average two miles wide but 80 miles from tip to tip has the drama of the ocean on one side and the beauty of the Caribbean in walking distance to the other side. A return trip is a must for me.”
