More than 3,000 visitors this fall toured Showtime, the classic 63-foot Trumpy motoryacht serving as a floating showcase for marine products, according to marine industry consultant Jock West, organizer of the promotional tour.

More than 30 manufacturers and suppliers provided new products and services for the project, which will continue visiting boat shows and other events throughout the winter and spring.

“From the many positive comments we received from visitors at the fall shows, it’s clear that Showtime is accomplishing what we had set out to do — to show the boating public what our industry is capable of,” said West.

Showtime’s next event will be Vintage Weekend at the Ocean Reef Club in December. She will then cruise to Key West for Key West Race Week to serve as the VIP Boat for several regatta sponsors.
