Where horses graze on acres of emerald green pastures sprawling beneath towering Spanish Moss-laden oak trees, this intimate all-inclusive retreat offers one of Ocala’s most sophisticated equestrian experiences.

That’s the BG Polo & Equestrian Resort experience.

Located just a short drive from Orlando, the 10,000-square-foot, seven-bedroom Main House features classically designed accommodations with stunning views of the surrounding paddocks, while three luxurious three-bedroom Cottages and three-bedroom Farmhouse offer the ultimate in privacy and comfort. Guests can rent the entire property for a wedding, family reunion or corporate retreat or just the main house, cottages or Farmhouse while enjoying all of the amenities. The well-appointed equestrian facility includes immaculate stables with 70 stalls, three newly renovated barns, a 38,000-square-foot covered lighted arena, an outside arena for instruction and demonstrations, multiple paddocks, long and short term horse lodging, and accommodations for RV hook-ups.

It all began when Richard Branson hit Bobby Genovese over the head. Metaphorically, of course.

“I had all these incredible residences that I owned that I just don’t get to visit anymore,” says Genovese, chairman of BG Capital Group Limited, which in 2013 came out with the BG Signature Luxury Retreat Collection. “And having spent some time with Richard Branson, he sort of hit me over the head and said, ‘Well, why don’t you do what I do?’ And that’s how BG Signature came about.”

It works perfectly for Genovese, who just likes to show people a good time. An adventure enthusiast himself who finds his rush exploring different corners of the world (and anywhere that happens to have a polo field), the entrepreneur and business mogul has established his ideal hobby in BG Signature Collection.

“I really enjoy creating incredible experiences of holidays for people,” says Genovese, who’s talking from the BG Signature flagship location, an equestrian resort in Ocala, Fla. This particular property is a real-life fantasy for any active vacationer, located adjacent to the Florida Horse Park and backing onto the world-famous Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway, a 177-kilometre-long trail that connects one side of the state to the other.

With the goal of adding one property to BG Signature’s roster every one to two years, Genovese couldn’t be happier with the way the company is already spreading his fun-loving energy to fellow travelers seeking unique destinations all over the world. When asked if he has his eye on any potentials right now, he says he does — and we’ll just have to wait and see what and where they turn out to be. For now, travelers can whet their adventure palates by perusing the BG Signature website, which gives a detailed overview of each property. From there, Genovese says, the renting process is simple as can be: just call or email BG Signature with the location you’ve fallen for, and shortly after your escape will be booked.

Bobby Genovese’s BG Signature Collection Expands Luxury Yacht Fleet with Launch of M/Y BG CHARADE

1024 683 BG Signature

BG Capital Group announces the latest addition to his luxury yacht division with the launch of M/Y BG CHARADE

Adding to a global portfolio of BG Signature experiences and concierge travel offerings, BG Capital Group Chairman Bobby Genovese has announced the latest addition to his luxury yacht division with the launch of M/Y BG CHARADE, a classic 154-foot Feadship following a complete interior and exterior refit.

The new fully customized motor yacht boasts a modern, stylish interior with six spacious staterooms accommodating 12 guests for overnight trips. Among the changes is a more streamlined, ergonomic layout throughout, a new VIP suite on the main deck as a sixth stateroom, a new large wine display in the salon, state-of-the-art electronics and a spectacular outdoor aft deck theatre suited for al fresco entertaining and lounging.

“BG CHARADE was world renown when built in 1990 as the first Feadship to have a wheel-less wheelhouse,” said Genovese who fell in love with the boat when owned by Microsoft cofounder Paul Allen.

“Paul took her up the Amazon River and around the world twice, where she enjoyed a global roster of guests who undoubtedly shared my fascination and awe. She’s an amazing and storied work of art with a pedigree as unique as her lines.” And so, when the opportunity to purchase CHARADE decades later from then-owner British entrepreneur Joe Lewis, Genovese knew that life had come full circle and the yacht he had admired so was to be his destiny.

M/Y BG CHARADE joins an impressive suite of yachts in the BG charter collection that also includes M/Y BG Jr., a state-of-the-art 78-ft Lazzara LSX and M/Y BG3, a 2009 74-Sunseeker Predator.

ShowBoats: On Board with Bobby Genovese

550 380 BG Signature

We are excited to share the June 2015 issue of ShowBoats International Magazine featuring Bobby Genovese and the BG Yacht Collection by Marilyn Mower.


On Board with Bobby Genovese

Bobby Genovese made his fortune in the same way he has approached yachting: acquiring companies and yachts in rapid succession. Here, he shares his ventures into the business of fun with Marilyn Mower.

“WHO HAS MORE FUN THAN US?” If you watch Bobby Genovese race his kids up a 55-foot natural granite rock climbing wall at his summer house in Canada, charge along on a polo pony, blast out of his Lake Rosseau boathouse in one of his vintage speedboats or Jet Ski around one of his charter yachts, you quickly understand the question is rhetorical. His face has two speeds: grin and bigger grin.

I first heard about Genovese in connection with a 154-foot Feadship he’s refitting, Charade, thinking it might be a good story for Boat International Media’s Refit annual. Since Charade was in full “Frankenboat” stage at Derecktor shipyard, his PA suggested meeting on one of his other boats in Miami Beach or at his polo and equestrian club in Vero Beach, Florida. Serial boat owners, I’ve known aplenty; polo ponies added a new twist.

Screenshot_050815_022401_PMGenovese is a Canadian entrepreneur with an improbable success story that sounds like a TV script; oh wait, his life was bundled into a script, eight episodes to be exact of a program called “Bobby G: Adventure Capitalist” that aired in 2008 and followed him and his CEO Marco Markin as they bought, built and sold companies.

Genovese is chairman of BG Capital Group and BG Capital Management Corp., both based in Barbados, BG Capital Investment Trust and now BG Signature Resorts.

Tall, tan and fit-looking under a shock of sandy hair, his style is friendly, folksy, self-effacing and yet totally confident and prepared for anything. He has a knack for establishing working assets, and the harder they work the better. We were sitting on one of them, a Lazzara 78 LSX sport yacht that chartered 170 days last year in Florida and The Bahamas. Our backdrop was another one of his yachts in the BG Signature Luxury Yacht Collection, a Sunseeker Predator 75 he’d added to the portfolio in December 2014.

BG Capital Group’s Cowboys Saloon Announces National Expansion

581 284 BG Signature
South Florida-based Cowboys Saloon has signed a national expansion deal with Starpoint Commercial to open additional venues in major markets throughout the Continental U.S.

South Florida-based Cowboys Saloon has signed a national expansion deal with Starpoint Commercial to open additional venues in major markets throughout the Continental U.S., announced Cowboys Saloon Founder Anthony Perera and co-owner BG Capital Group Chairman Bobby Genovese.


Since opening its first south Florida location in 2011, the casual dining, bar, and entertainment venue has become a major player in live music and entertainment, receiving numerous awards for its entertainment excellence. In May 2014 Perera and Genovese opened a second club in Ocala, Florida following a multimillion-dollar build-out that replaced the city’s old Midnight Rodeo complex in downtown Ocala, which had closed in 2011.

“Cowboys is now the number one entertainment spot and ultimate place for friends and families to gather and have fun in a classic western themed bar and restaurant that is modern and sophisticated,” said Genovese.

“We are excited to have been chosen by Cowboys Saloon for their national rollout,” said Starpoint Commercial Founder Joshua Rush. “Starpoint Commercial is a fully integrated real estate consulting and brokerage house focusing on retail and entertainment industries. It’s like having your own in-house real estate department.”

Cowboys Saloon is a fun entertainment driven dining and nightlife experience that combines Americana style eats, large dance floor and ample room for hosting national artists in a rustic western decor setting. The average location ranges from 12,000-15,000 square feet with a seating capacity for over 200 people and a concert capacity of close to or exceeding 1000 people.

“We love where this brand is going,” said Perera. “There is tremendous opportunity for a brand like Cowboys Saloon to gain massive market share and on that basis we plan to open 10-12 units in the next 24 months. More than just a restaurant or bar, we are truly an entertainment destination that engages guests from the moment the walk in and keep them entertained until the moment they leave.”

“Family getaway”

“We arrived to relax , regroup and reconnect with our 2 college sons . The Three bedroom townhouse is lovely , beautifully furnished and close to the beach . Our older two college sons liked being close to the Atlantis so the could see the action at night . We loved our quiet secluded beach in front of the town home . The kitchen has everything you will need to feed / cook for a family .
Food stores are over the bridge in Nassau so you must travel have a rent a car !!
We used the grill often which was a great bonus !
Our 10 year old loved snorkeling daily in the crystal blue waters .
Really a fantastic family vacation !!!”
