Gulf Coast Boat Show

Gulf Coast Boat Show

With today marking the one-year anniversary of the devastating Gulf Coast oil spill, we wanted to highlight an event that shows the resilience and passion of the region.

This past weekend, the 29th annual Suncoast Boat Show took place at Marina Jack’s in downtown Sarasota, Florida.  Large crowds descended upon the docks to check out the new features accompanying the reconceived show.

“This major boat show has important regional economic impact and signals the recovery of the marine industry as the economy continues to improve and demand increases,” said Dane Graziano, COO and Senior Vice President of Show Management.  “This show in its beautiful location is truly a jewel among boat shows.”

To make it extra special, hundreds of boats for sale from the Gulf Coast’s leading boat builders were displayed.  Guests also perused an array of marine electronics, products and other boating accessories.

Sarasota proved to be a beautiful destination for a boat show, with pristine beaches, aquariums and water sports activities available to visitors.  This weekend’s guests also reaped the benefits of the relaunch, which included the new location, accessory exhibit tents and dining in a spectacular facility with panoramic views of the marina, Sarasota Bay and the Gulf of Mexico.
