2017 PACIFIC SAIL & POWER BOAT SHOW SUCCESSFULLY CONCLUDES SECOND SHOW

AT RICHMOND, CALIF. LOCATION

More Exhibitors, More in-water Boats, New Motor Yachts Showcase and More

(April 12, 2017) – Thousands of boating enthusiasts visited the 2017 Pacific Sail & Power Boat Show at the Craneway Pavilion and Marina Bay Yacht Harbor on the waterfront in Richmond, Calif., from Thursday, April 6 through Sunday, April 9. Despite the challenging weather, Northern California’s largest boat show enjoyed a seven percent increase in attendance. A storm hit the area Thursday evening, causing damage to a portion of the in-water boats and displays.

“Thankfully, exhibitors and show management worked together to overcome the storm damage and open the show by 11 a.m. that morning so we were able to continue the show throughout the weekend,” said Sail America President Jim Abel. “We are grateful for everyone’s efforts.”

The four-day event featured an expanded in-water display with a new Motor Yacht Showcase as well as dozens more exhibitors inside the Craneway Pavilion and in a new Exhibitor Tent at the marina. The 100-plus seminars, both free and paid, were well attended with more than 2,000 attendees participating this year.

“As expected, the Pacific Sail & Power Boat Show delivered an awesome venue and a dedicated crowd,” said Mantus Anchors CEO Gregory Kutsen. “We are very glad we came and certainly plan to return to the show in 2018.”

The Pacific Sail & Power Boat Show will return next year Thursday, April 12 to Sunday, April 15 at Craneway Pavilion located at 1414 Harbour Way S., and the nearby Marina Bay Yacht Harbor 1340 Marina Way S., in Richmond, California. For more information visit www.pacificboatshow.com.
