Fall has traditionally been the beginning of Boat Show Season, and Florida takes center stage with several shows launching in October and ending in April. The Florida Boat Show Season kicks off in Ft Lauderdale, moves to Naples, Ft. Myers, St Petersburg, then Miami, Palm Beach and culminates in Sarasota. The boating lifestyle has become such a phenomenal and integral part of family enjoyment that boat shows have now become a year round and world wide event to accommodate the location and needs of boaters everywhere.

These shows give the boating lifestyle community an excellent opportunity to catch up with old friends, make new ones, meet with your yacht broker and look at various styles and available boats on the market. There are also boating lifestyle vendors present with the newest and latest and greatest products and services available today!

The boat show experience is much more than the amazing display of vessels both indoors and out. It provides seminars, activities and special events for not only boat owners, brokers and manufacturers, but their whole families too.

Here are some of the great reasons to visit a boat show nearest you or contact your trusted broker for boat show information.

Thinking About Your New Boat?
Boat and yacht buyers' start looking for their dream boats when the bug hits them. So, whether you are a first time boat buyer, or a buyer who is looking for a different size boat, the boast shows offer all the options available to accommodate the changes in day to day use. Heading out to a boat show to see all the styles, types and models on display is like a day of golf on a new course for the avid golfer! The entire spectrum is represented in one place from the largest, inflatables, cruisers, runabouts, fishing boats, high performance boats, motor yachts and super yachts.
Boat shows are the perfect opportunity to connect and network with everyone who represents the boating industry. Making new friends at the boat tent, to setting up a rendezvous for future vacations is a prime example of how to make your boating experience a lasting memory.

Parties, Fun and Special Events
The parties and fun are never in short supply during the shows. From dock parties, vendor parties and special events, the fun flows and hospitality is shared for kids, spouses and friends.

Bolster Relationships
Boat shows are also a great opportunity to bolster relationships with colleagues, associates and clients through great conversations, shared experiences and personal time to really get to know people. Join your boat broker and walk around and discuss what excites you most about a particular hull or special amenities on a boat you might be considering. There are lots of options, so your goal should be to find the answers you are looking for to make your decision an easy one and "hassle free".

The show always provides valuable and fun workshops and seminars for kids on fishing and marine life, the cruising lifestyle, and fishing techniques by some of the most experienced fisherman.

Our industry Boat Show Season is a celebration of the "total boating lifestyle". At  Marcali Yacht, we tell our associates and customers, "With the boat show season in full swing, now is the time to move forward on the boat of your dreams. New product introductions, combined with the influx of quality used trades, make this an exceptional time to get the deal you have been looking for."

It brings us all together and brings out the best of the best, so grab the family and see you there!
