Spectacular weather in a great downtown waterfront location gave the St. Petersburg Boat Show a dramatic increase in attendance for Dec. 1-4, 2011.
According to Lou Vinci, owner of Indian Springs Marina
of Largo, the overall attitude of the public seemed more upbeat than in previous years with more consumers talking about when they are going to make a purchase instead of if I am going to purchase, which is what they were saying in the past.
Vinci, along with his daughter, Jenn, and sons, Mike and Steve, gave a full family effort for the weekend show. Indian Springs had a couple of sales on the books and a lot of solid prospects to continue working on for the next few weeks.
With Indian Springs as the host dealer, the land display included 204FS
models and 280SCR
. A water display included a 320SY
A lot of snowbirds had made it down for the winter and spring already, which helped boost the attendance. The bigger crowd is a good indication the winter boat show season should be stronger this year.Monterey Boats
