Default N Y Boat Show "How Is It?"

How is the show this year?

Is it worth the trip? Or should I wait for A.C.?

I noticed the show getting smaller as years pass.

What Performance Boat Manufacturers attended this year?

AC will have much more in the performance boats than NY... NY is more for cruisers... I didn't go this year, my buddy did and said there was fountain, donzi, checkmate and I believe cigarette.... AC is much better... if you can, go to Miami.... For the East Coast, it's fabulous and it's warm!!! Great OSO party last year!!!

Sharky,

I am just as curious as you! I guess know one went. Normally, that show was packed 10 day's straight. Always sold more units the second weekend. Wendsday was known as Dr.'s day and all the big guns would shop then to avoid the mass crowds.

If the show is suffering that badly, maybe the N.M.M.A. should hire a new marketing director. The show used to draw from three states. I could always count on meeting folks from NY, NJ, CT.

I hope someone can enlighten us as to the shows performance this year!

Default Don't bother...

We went on Thursday and it was a waste of time...

No Cigs but Outerlimits , Donzi , Checkmate , Fountain and Powerquest had some boats.

Definitely a show geared more towards family type boats / cruisers.

I was quite curious as to see what was going to happen being as they moved the show right into the Holidays.

After the holiday shopping and all, I am not quite ready to be doing more just yet.

Went yesterday. Better than working, but not a great show at all.
Anyone else that went notice how many ski / wakeboard boats they had there this year? What was up with that?

There is nothing better than Miami.

Ft. Lauderdale would come in a close 2nd.

Atlantic City 3rd.

A. C. has been growing. Now whether this is good or bad? NMMA has bought the Atlantic City show from what I am told. I felt Jay was doing a good job with the show. He took it from nothing and brought it to what it is today. The future of AC is yet to be seen.
It may end up being what New York used to be or better.
Let's all hope A.C. becomes the largest performance boat show in the North East.

Default AC and Skaterfest

Sharkey,

When is the AC boat show this year? Also, is there a date set for Skaterfest? I plan to be there this year with my 21. Hope the weather is better.
