The Boston Fall Boat Show will not take place this year, organizers announced.

“Due to the current economic climate, the local marine marketplace cannot support a show at this time. We simply could not get enough additional exhibitor support to make the numbers work for 2011,” show manager Warren Kelly said in a statement.

“If all the exhibitors returned from last year, we would still have a significant shortfall in revenue,” he added. “We need new dealers and new brands to enter this market to produce a profitable show. This has been a major show in this region for many years, and it will be back.”

The show is owned by Boat Shows Inc., a subsidiary of the Massachusetts Marine Trades Association.
