Newport International Boat Show Recap

Each year, the Newport International Boat Show(NIBS) kicks off the boat show season with a bang, and we had a great time at this year’s show. Held September 17-20, the 45th NIBS featured 13 acres of boating and yachting glory. There were yacht unveilings, a treasure hunt for a sapphire pendant, night cruises, receptions, daily seminars, and more. Among the weekend’s most notable events was the Newport For New Products Awards (click to view award winners).

0916151754Our trip was busy, but we were able to enjoy a lot of what Newport, Rhode Island has to offer. We began our stay in Newport at the unique and beautiful Newport Jailhouse Inn. On Thursday (17th), the show officially kicked off.


Frigibar was one of 600 exhibitors at NIBS, sharing a booth in Tent C 69 with the Island & Harbor Sales team. We ran into many old and new friends, including representatives from Suntex Marinas, Chafe-Pro, Sailor Sams, Cool Boats, and TNT Lifts. Thousands of visitors came through the show over the four days, and many stopped by to visit us. Thank you to everyone who came by!

In addition to NIBS, we visited the Newport Brokerage Boat Show held at the Newport Shipyard and Marina. We had the opportunity to attend the ABBRA cocktail party and a reception hosted by the US Superyacht Association (USSA).

Although the show is over, we’d still love to connect with you and talk about how Frigibar fits into your life on the water. Feel free to reach out to us, or come out in less than two months to Fort Lauderdale. We hope to see you at the 2015 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS) November 5 – 9.

How Frigibar Fits Into Your Life on the Water

The Frigibar lifestyle is about keeping things cool on and near the water. Frigibar is America’s foremost manufacturer of quality marine refrigeration products, from cockpit freezers and refrigerators to utility deck and dock boxes. While known primarily for manufacturing fiberglass freezers made to withstand the elements, Frigibar provides versatile options that bring style and unlimited capabilities to your adventures.

Fishing

Our boat cockpit refrigerators / freezers are the perfect sidekick for tournament fishing teams, fishing enthusiasts, and spearfishers. There’s nothing better when needing to keep bait, keepers, or even drinks, nice and cool. These cockpit refrigerators / freezers are powerful, durable, rust-proof, and will keep your fishing trips going for as long as you want. Prices start at $4,656 for the 40”L x 20”W x 21”H Ensign Cockpit refrigerators / freezers, which can double as an attractive seating option with the purchase of a custom cushion.

Yachting

The best adventures last more than just a few hours. When planning a yachting journey, food and cold storage is a necessity. By combining an efficient marine generator, watermaker, and one of our cockpit refrigerators / freezers, who needs land? Keep a large supply of frozen food and drinks available for your entire trip by taking a Frigibar Admiral refrigerator / freezer along for the ride.

At The House

For on the dock or by the pool, a Frigibar Salty Dog Insulated Marine Ice Chest provides the same quality design and insulation as our cockpit refrigerators / freezers, while providing an inexpensive way to keep food and drinks cool.  Pair an ice chest or cockpit freezer with a deck or dock box for additional storage. Frigibar’s Salty Dog Watertight Utility Deck and Dock boxes start at just $815.

Frigibar Marine Refrigeration: Cold, Wherever Needed

Frigibar works to keep all of your adventures, and your food and drinks, cool.

Frigibar Industries Supports 2016 Miami International Boat Show at Marine Stadium Park

The 2016 Progressive® Miami International Boat Show is scheduled for February 11-15, 2016.

This year’s show, which will be the 75th annual event, will be hosted at the Miami Marine Stadium Park & Basin. The location was chosen as an alternative to the Miami Beach Convention Center, which is currently being renovated.

The Miami Herald published a letter of support from Frigibar Industries President Shuly Oletzky. Frigibar is a family-owned company that has exhibited at the show for nearly 50 years. The event brings in over 90,000 attendees annually and has been an integral part of the Miami boating industry and one of the most popular boat shows in the world.

The Miami Herald:

“Re the May 28 story Miami Commission approves key Boat Show agreements: I am the owner of Frigibar Industries Inc., a small family-owned business located in the Little River area of Miami. We are one of the longest established manufacturers of marine freezers and refrigeration systems for boaters.

For the past 49 years, Frigibar has been an exhibitor at the Miami International Boat Show.

For more than 30 years, we have also been members of the National Marine Manufacturers Association. The Boat Show and our partnership with the NMMA have been essential for the survival and growth of our business.

As a business without a retail store location, the Boat Show is a valuable resource, and our best opportunity to have potential buyers see, feel and purchase our products.

I have many fond memories of Miami Marine Stadium Park. My family would often enjoy the amazing waterfront views when dining at the Rusty Pelican. I have attended Miami International Boat Show since childhood and I look forward to supporting and participating in next year’s event.”

Join Frigibar at the 2016 Miami International Boat Show as we continue to support the event and boating community. We’ll be featuring the best cockpit freezers and refrigerators, dock boxes, fish boxes, ice chests, conversion kits and more, all made in the USA.
