ST. PETERSBURG SHOW SUCCESS
The 2011 St Petersburg Power & Sailboat Show in Gulf Florida confirms the direction of boat interest that the Fort Lauderdale Show recently indicated – UP! Attendance at St. Petersburg Show was up 18% over 2010 and there were 25% more boats on display. The show ran December 1st – 4th and by all accounts both brokerage and new boat prospects and sales were up. Vendors seemed to be pleased and one commented that customers have recently returned to the market after placing their purchasing decisions on hold for the past few years. Let’s hope this keeps up and the bigger upcoming Miami Boat Show will play out just as positively.
