Larger crowds come out for Trawler Fest

PassageMaker Magazine's Trawler Fest saw an increase in attendance at Trawler Fest Fort Lauderdale, its first event of 2010, which was held Jan. 19-21 at the Bahia Mar Beach Resort and Yachting Center.

Organizers said 2,400 people attended the three-day event, which was a 62 percent increase from the previous year. There were more than 90 in-water and land exhibitors.

"Abundant sunshine, the latest cruising designs moored to modern floating docks of the Bahia Mar Resort Marina and a host of new-technology products on display in the massive on-land tent helped make the inaugural Trawler Fest Fort Lauderdale a well-rounded experience for attendees," PassageMaker Magazine editor in chief John Wooldridge said in a statement.

"Our well-known PassageMaker University and the Trawler Fest Seminar Series attracted South Florida boaters to classes in record numbers, helping them to understand the cruising lifestyle that drives this event and our magazine," he added.

The next Trawler Fest will take place March 5-7 at the Kona Kai Resort and Marina in San Diego.
