Looking for a Good Boat Show

I am looking for some suggestion on the best boat show to attend in 2012 on the West coast, for 35’ to 75’. Currently live in Arizona. I am interested in any new 2 cabin set ups for Cruising and am interested in the technology used today.

Thanks for the response that show appears to be more of a lake boat show vs. the Sailboat type in which I am looking for.

Yeh, I wouldnt specifically fly to it or anything, but its an awesome show and at least half of it is sail. Nothing beats Miami, but Toronto has a great show, and sailboaters are quite well represented.

Good luck.

Re: Looking for a good Boat show

Miami is "THE" boat show. You asked about west coast but if you are looking at new boats 35-75' then the ticket to Miami should not raise an issue. BTW welcome.

+1 on this. We attended Strictly Sail last year in February and were impressed. Worth the plane ticket I'd think.

Re: Looking for a good Boat show

Cool thanks for all the input, the west coast is just easier for me to get away from work but I’ll definitely have to check into the Miami show I see it in February.
Thanks Zeta glad to be hear reading and learning
