Record-breaking exhibit space expected for Suncoast Boat Show

The 35th annual Suncoast Boat Show in Sarasota takes place Friday, Apr. 21 to Sunday, Apr. 23 at Marina Jack in downtown Sarasota, Fla. Show presenters expect this year’s show is expected to be the largest in the event’s history in terms of overall exhibit space and the number of boats and exhibitors on display.

Nearly two hundred exhibitors will showcase a selection of boats ranging from motor yachts and fishing boats to cruisers, runabouts and personal watercraft. Also on display will be a full range of marine electronics and products, as well as paddleboards, canoes, kayaks and other on-the-water toys.

The collection will include many boats never before seen on the Gulf Coast, including the Marlow 97, Outter Reef 82, Hatteras 70 GT and 60 Motor Yacht, Grand Banks Palm Beach 42 and the Ocean Alexander 70 and 85, among many others.

“Year after year, this market proves to be excellent for both new and brokerage sales,” said Brett Keating, vice president of consumer marketing for Show Management, the company that owns and produces the show. “We’ve expanded the in-water display this year to accommodate increased demand from our exhibitors. It’s turning out to be our largest event yet.”

The 2017 Suncoast Boat Show in Sarasota is presented, managed and produced by Show Management and sponsored by Audi Sarasota, Budweiser and Sarasota Magazine. For more information, visit
