TrawlerFest is returning to Stuart, Fla., for the first time since 2009, partnering with Hutchinson Island Marriott Beach Resort & Marina.

The dates are Feb. 28-March 4. Registration begins in December.

Organizers said the choice of a Marriott resort will mark a huge improvement from other Florida TrawlerFest sites in the recent past, most recently Riviera Beach Municipal Marina, which was under construction during TrawlerFest this year and last.

Attendee feedback, though positive about seminars and the boat show in general, lamented the conditions at the venue, organizers said.

Organizers said business travelers and resort-goers hold the Marriott chain in high regard because of its high standards and consistency throughout its properties.

The Stuart resort offers large climate- and lighting-controlled halls for seminars and modern, well-maintained docks for the in-water show, which will run from March 2-4 (Thursday to Saturday), organizers said.

Besides signature seminars such as “Everything You Need To Know About Diesel Engines,” “Hands-On Boat Handling,” “Cruising Cuba” and “Boatbuyer’s Survival Guide,” some all-new topics and new instructors will freshen the mix, organizers said.

Seminars will be held from Feb. 28 to March 4 and the in-water boat show will be held March 2-4.
