The 36th annual Suncoast Boat Show in Sarasota takes to the water beginning Friday, April 20 through Sunday, April 22, at Marina Jack in downtown Sarasota.
Long known as the Gulf Coast’s leading boutique boat show, the weekend-long event will feature Cruisers, Runabouts, Bowriders, Sport fishers, Center Consoles, Motor Yachts, Inflatables and everything a recreational boater needs from stem to stern. Nearly 300 boats will be on display.
More than 100 exhibitors will present new and brokerage boats never before seen on the Gulf Coast, including the Bertam 35, Ocean Alexander’s 70 & 85, Minorca Islander 42, Hatteras 45, 75 Viking Motor Yacht, a full line of Prestige boats among many others.
“Recreational boating continues to be strong in terms of sales and attracting new boating enthusiasts that are coming aboard and buying,” says Andrew Doole, general manager and vice president of Informa, the company that owns and produces the Suncoast Boat Show. “The show provides a glimpse of buyer trends as dealers and manufacturers offer some of their most attractive incentives, while giving shoppers the chance to compare different boats, and different dealers, all in one location.”
Exhibitor tents will showcase the best in new electronics, accessories as well as marine themed jewelry, art and clothing. Attendees will enjoy a festive atmosphere with food, drinks, and live music. Informational seminars from the International Game Fishing Association and kid’s fishing clinics, sponsored by Hook the Future will take place during the weekend. In addition, the magnificent
Twiggy, the water-skiing squirrel, will delight crowds Saturday and Sunday with her amazing talent.
The 2018 Suncoast Boat Show in Sarasota is presented, managed and produced by Informa, a global leader in trade and consumer exhibitions. Informa also produces the renowned Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show®, Miami Yacht Show, the Palm Beach International Boat Show, and the St. Petersburg Power & Sailboat Show.
