The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show expects to welcome 110,000 visitors from 50+ countries, along 6-miles of floating docks, displaying 1500-boats in 7-locations, featuring 1200-exhibitors in 3-million square feet of exhibition space.  Truly an amazing feat for a 5-day venue ranking it the ‘Largest International Boat Show in the World.’ 

That may have been enough reason alone for Fort Lauderdale businesswoman Gillian Dinnerstein to decide to showcase her Penthouse Condo-Listing during the event.


Back in March, Dinnerstein, the proud widow of Elliot Dinnerstein, a former business partner at Souther Wine & Spirits’ (#17 on Forbes 2017 list of America’s Largest Private Companies), was chauffeured to a private cocktail party aboard the $8 million Super Yacht, ‘No Badda Bing’ at the Palm Beach Boat Show to meet Haute-Luxury Agents Veronica Caracciolo and broker-husband, Frank Kirschner and a few business friends, as the start of discussions as to whether or not to market her condominium she bought in 2013.  (Property video & details).

“What is so unique about this Luxury Condominium property?  “Well, other than the direct ocean and intracoastal views from the largest covered balcony in the city, it’s just a short walk from the Boat Show,” Caracciolo says.  “Even more enticing is the fact that it’s priced at half the per square foot cost of similar new developments along the oceanfront and that makes it a great investment,” Kirschner emphasizes.  “She bought right, so she can sell right.  Win/win.”.


Though not clandestine, the earlier private cocktail party in Palm Beach afforded the opportunity for client and Haute representatives to begin the strategic thought process for marketing the luxury property.  “This is the type of time-lag and backdrop involved when High Net Worth Individuals like Ms. Dinnerstein begin contemplating the sale of a luxury residence. It’s a very emotional decision,” Caracciolo gestures.  “For us as agents, it takes great preparation and planning..”

So if you’re in the market for a Luxury Oceanfront Condo, this one’s a gem.
