Essa Alijelat will be at FLIBS… will you?

The Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show is coming up fast now. There’s still time to plan to travel down to sunny South Florida for the show, which opens October 27. While you’re there, you’ll see the latest in luxury yachts at the nation’s largest floating exposition. It’s a lot of fun, and even better — the organizers have worked to make it very safe. So how about a trip to the world-famous Bahia Mar resort on Fort Lauderdale’s primo beach?

Here’s another reason to visit

Essa Alijelat has been part of the Signal Group team for nearly a decade. In that time, he’s worked to get hundreds of boats running with the latest satellite TV technology. He’s one of the hard workers at Signal Connect, the commercial and activations arm of Solid Signal.

Essa specializes in satellite service for marine customers. It’s not just luxury yachts, although he works with engineers on some of the largest pleasure craft on the water. He also helps commercial and fleet operators with satellite service. Whether it’s a tugboat that wants to have a little TV for off hours or a massive cruise ship, the one common factor is Essa’s dedication to his customers.

Here’s what Essa’s known for

A lot of people say they go the extra mile. I’ve lost track of how many times Essa has taken a part from our warehouse and personally driven it to a shipping depot or airport after hours. Hardly a day goes by when he doesn’t get an after-hours call from somewhere in the world. To him, it’s all part of the job. He dedicates himself to making sure that marine satellite customers get the service they deserve. It’s all in a day’s — or a night’s — work.

Whenever I talk to Essa, it’s always about something that should be impossible. There’s a boat that wants a replacement for a 15-year-old multiswitch, but doesn’t want to rewire. There’s a yacht parked 75 miles off shore and they want to watch NFL games over satellite. Somehow, Essa works to get it done, even when the experts say it can’t be done. That’s just the kind of guy he is.

Get Essa on your side

This is Essa.

The marketing team wanted to tie him down for a couple of hours to shoot a video, but he wasn’t having any of it. He just kept taking calls and working while we were shooting. So, we decided that his dedication was his story. Are you ready to have his dedication pay off for you?

Visit Essa at FLIBS at booth 606 and get to know this remarkable man. Or, if you’re interested in contacting him now, start at You can call him or fill our a form so he can call you back. I promise it will be worth your time.
