Thousands of sailing aficionados visited the 2016 Strictly Sail Pacific Boat Show in its new location on the waterfront in Richmond, Calif., at the Craneway Pavilion and Marina Bay Yacht Harbor.

“This was our largest display ever at the Strictly Sail Pacific Boat Show and we were thrilled with our in-water island space at the new venue,” JK3 Yachts president Jeff Brown said in a statement. “The Moody 54 was the queen of our display — we’ve sold four since its U.S. debut in January, and it continued to impress crowds in the JK3 display throughout the weekend.”

The April 7-10 sailing event saw the North American debut of the Dehler 42; the West Coast debut of the Jenneau 54; and the world debut of the Hobie Mirage Eclipse, the first-ever stand up paddleboard, powered by pedals.

“The Craneway Pavilion was such an impressive venue — a great move for the Strictly Sail Pacific Boat Show,” Mantus Anchors CEO Gregory Kutsen said. “Mantus Anchors was busy all weekend with steady crowds throughout the show — vendors were happy and customers seemed pleased. We’re already looking forward to next year.”

The show will return next year to the same location from April 6-9.
