The 2011 Atlantic City Boat Show saw a 114 percent increase in attendance from last year's shortened show, the National Marine Manufacturers Association reported.

The show, which ran Feb. 2-6 at the Atlantic City Convention Center, was forced last year to shut down early because of a blizzard.

The NMMA said 34,760 attended this year's event, compared with 16,249 in 2010. The NMMA also said exhibitors throughout the week reported steady, quality attendance and strong sales.

"We're really happy. We've sold about 30 boats so far and we're writing one now," Mike Aiello, of Marine Max, told the NMMA.

"We've sold 11 units so far and I have a ton of appointments set up for this week," Andy Biddle of Professional Boat Sales told the association. "We're very happy we decided to come to the show."
