Shows are perhaps the premier staging site for selling and buying boats. Builders from across the country and around the world deliver their best and newest boats, electronic equipment, engines and supplies to a prime location so boaters can see, inspect and perhaps make a deal to buy them. Whether the location is a glamorous site such as Miami Beach or a small, local venue, shows are where builders and consumers connect.
The event gives students a look at service, retail, manufacturing and entrepreneurial career paths.
The builder hopes to fill a void in the yacht category.
New resident shuttle seeks to relieve traffic congestion.
The show was up 10 percent over the 2015 record.
Outboards, center consoles and larger boats were the trends exhibitors saw during winter show season.
Events include FLIBS, Miami Yacht Show and Palm Beach International Boat Show.
The event will be held April 5-7.
