The 2012 St. Petersburg Power & Sailboat Show, the largest boat show on the West Coast of Florida, is set to sail into the Progress Energy Center for the Arts Mahaffey Theater Yacht Basin and Albert Whitted Park in St. Petersburg, Florida, starting tomorrow, Thursday, November 29. The Show will conclude this Sunday, December 2, allowing Gulf Coast buyers 4 full days to browse all kinds of new and brokerage boats.
“With the upcoming opening of our new sales and service office at The Harbourage Marina in St. Pete, this boat show is an event we’ve had circled on our calendar all year,” said Denison President, Bob Denison.
The show will feature an impressive selection of powerboats and sailboats in water and on land, including a 40,000-square-foot housing tent exhibiting all types of yacht equipment, and marine gear. Show-goers will find hundreds of motoryachts and sailboats including family cruisers, runabouts, fishing boats, magnificent sailing yachts, personal watercraft and much more.
In addition to the large selection of exhibits at this year’s show, there will be an array of special events and fun and educational activities, including marine seminars and the youth fishing clinics presented by the non-profit Hook the Future.
“We’re thrilled to be displaying at this year’s St. Pete Show. The Beneteau power brand has received tons of interest from West Cost boaters in Florida recently. Specifically the Swift Trawlers have been very popular with buyers here. I can’t wait to reconnect with them and hopefully meet some new ones!” Beneteau Power specialist, Alex Wilkes commented.
Austin Parker brand manager, David Johnson, shares Alex’s enthusiasm, “As a lobster boat style boat built in Italy, many industry experts believe the Austin Parker is the perfect fit for the yachting market on the West Coast of Florida. I’m excited to introduce her at the Show this weekend.”
