Question AC Boat Show Exhibitors?

Care to share some sales stats?

How did everyone do at this show?

Was it what you may have predicted?

After talking with some dealers, Friday even with the snow storm, the serious buyers showed and bought.

One dealer I know as of last night had thirty boats written.

Do you feel the show was better or worse than last year?

Default AC BOAT SHOW

I wrote more insurance policies at this show than any show outside of Florida(Both high performance and yacht).I think this show will be the 3rd largest show in the country.I think we will try to get another booth at this show so we will have a booth at both ends of the show next year.

i guess people are buying boats instead of the market. people must not be scared of war either.

My opinion.... From the perspective of performance representation, this was the worst AC boat show I have been to. I also feel that this was because it ran so close to the Miami show. In the past, I thought there was great representation. I won't be returning in the future..... unless I take up fishing..... then the show would be worthwhile....

How were the crowds on the weekend? We went Friday, turnout didn't seem that great so we had access to every boat there, almost. Stopped by Donzi, twice, will definately hunt down Jeremy Bain when it's time to buy my next boat. First class act all the way!!! First time seeing the 38ZR in person, liked it alot although I really want to see the 38ZF when it comes out. Spent some time looking at Cigarette, still doing an awsome job on their bottoms.

The show was pretty crowded on Saturday. I ended up saving a lot of money because the beer lines were so long.
