Suncoast Boat Show says 2017 event will be its largestPosted on
The 35th annual Suncoast Boat Show in Sarasota, Fla., is set to take place April 21-23 at Marina Jack in downtown Sarasota.
This year’s show will be the largest in the event’s history in terms of overall exhibit space and the number of boats and exhibitors on display, organizers say.
Nearly 200 exhibitors will showcase boats that range from motoryachts and fishing boats to cruisers, runabouts and personal watercraft. Also on display will be a full range of marine electronics and products, as well as paddleboards, canoes, kayaks and other on-the-water toys.
Organizers said the collection will include many boats never before seen on the Gulf Coast, including the Marlow 97; Outer Reef 82; Hatteras 70 GT and 60 Motor Yacht; Grand Banks Palm Beach 42; and the Ocean Alexander 70 and 85.
“Year after year, this market proves to be excellent for both new and brokerage sales,” Show Management consumer marketing vice president Brett Keating said in a statement.
Show Management owns and produces the show.
“We’ve expanded the in-water display this year to accommodate increased demand from our exhibitors. It’s turning out to be our largest event yet,” Keating said.
The show is presented, managed and produced by Show Management and sponsored by Audi Sarasota, Budweiser and Sarasota Magazine.
