Default Who's planning on going to the NY show?

How big is it? Is it worth the trip? I know it is nothing like Miami but I have a dealer pressing me to make it and I want to know if I should go or not. IT would be a major hassle for me to make but is possible if worth the trouble

I have been there three years in a row and my honest opinion is that it sux!! If you are a fisherman or into cruisers it is ok...but for go fasts there is usually only Baja, Fountain, donzi, and one or two Outer Limits for show! I go only because I live only 15 minutes from the city, and I will probably be disapointed again. If you are going to visit a particular dealer who will be there it might be worth it because they usually do offer some good deals at the shows sometimes!! GOOD LUCK!!

Ive been going to the NY show almost thirty yrs. Past few yrs it totally sucked!! Not worth the admission and the cost of parking. I like to see fishing boats too, and they had a crappy display of them too. it used to be the top show, now its horrible.
Wait for the Atlantic city show. Way, Way better.

The only high perf. boats at the ny show are usually formula, fountain, donzi, baja and real sweet o.l.'s, but since we are boat shopping I figure the miami show would be better and I looked at their vendor list to and a lot of the boats were interested in, aren't listed,,, sunsation, sonic, P.Q., A.T.,, are they just not listed or are they NOT going to be there ??

Agree w/ everyone else. Been going to the NY show for as long as I can remember, and it's really gone downhill the last couple of years.
A.C. seems to be consistently getting better.
(Not to mention, I used to live 30 minutes from NYC - now I live 30 minutes from A.C.)
