The show runs from January 10 to 14 and will see more than 300 exhibitors tout their wares to thousands of visitors from the UK and around the world.

Haines Marine, which will be launching a new model of its offshore motor cruiser at the show, said it had a strong order book at the start of the year with many sales for the export market.

Justin Haines, director of the Catfield-based firm, said: “We’ve had a fantastic 18 months in terms of sales of craft across all models in our range. The London boat coming early in the year always kick-starts interest in new craft and gets people thinking boating again.

“The London show has always generated good sales for us, last year selling three different craft as a result of the show.”

Upholsterers Jeckells, Jeckells the Sailmakers and English Harbour Yachts will be among the other Norfolk firms exhibiting.

Richardson’s Boating Holidays will also be there, with the company’s director Greg Munford the chairman of the show.

Suffolk Yacht Harbour will be attending alongside several other operators on its site, at Levington near Ipswich, including chandlery Classic Marine, Evolution Rigging, OneSails, Mr Stainless, French Marine Motors, Sea Power Marine Electronics and the East Anglian Sailing School.

The yacht harbour is promising “an eye-catching feature” at its stand which it has been building for several weeks but is keeping firmly under wraps.

Another Suffolk company at the show will be Beccles-based ASAP Supplies, which supplies thousands of marine parts and equipment items from more than 70 brands and is about to launch a new branch in Hampshire.

One of the smaller exhibitors will be wooden pedal vessel firm Dad’s Boats whose director Stephen Pitkethly will be displaying the original two-seater Cyclone model, which circumnavigated the Isle of Wight 50 years ago. “What I like about London is the international visitors,” he said. “There is a Department for International Trade organised delegation coming from Brazil and there is one company specifically interested in British-made pedal boats so we have a meeting with them.”

Stuart Boat Show presented by Infiniti is next week –


The sailfish are biting, and so are the tripletail. Outdoors reporter Ed Killer talks about what you can fish for in the cold.

Boats, boats and more boats.

The 44th annual Stuart Boat Show — the Treasure Coast’s largest boating exposition — is ready to set sail again Jan. 12 to 14 along the St. Lucie River waterfront just north of downtown Stuart. Boat sellers, marine businesses which support the boating lifestyle, electronics, accessories, service businesses, travel businesses, boating education groups, marinas, boatyards, manufacturers and more will be on hand throughout the weekend to offer one-stop shopping and comparison on countless brands and makes of boats.

There truly is something for everyone who boats in these waters. Boats from 12 feet to over 80 feet including center consoles, bay boats, cruisers, trawlers, motor yachts, sportfishing boats, pontoon boats, technical poling skiffs, personal watercraft, paddlecraft and more will be featured in displays on land and in the water.  

There will be more than 200 local, national and international exhibitors displaying many of the nation’s most recognizable boat brands. Additional exhibits include the latest in marine electronics, outboard motors, inboard engines, safety equipment, accessories, boat lifts, fishing gear, nautical clothing and jewelry. On hand will also be financing and insurance companies, a full schedule of free seminars covering everything from kids’ fishing clinics to destination boating and travel, music, great food, drinks and more.

The Return of an Icon

One boat many show-goers are going to want to see is the newly configured Bertram 35. The company has come a long way since its founding in the late 1950s in Hialeah, but its leadership has understood its legacy as builders of a comfortable fishing platform. It will be the first time the company will display at the Stuart Boat Show.

The classic lines of the 35 will make boat historians remember the Bertram 31, but offers more beam and cabin comfort while maintaining its performance as a great sea boat for South Florida. The Bertram 35 will be on display in-water in the F-36 slip on the F dock at the show.

“Stuart Boat Show attendees will see hull No. 8 complete with a hard top and fly bridge with Seakeeper 5 and powered by Caterpillar diesels,” said Bertram marketing manager Allison Reis. “We offer an all custom boat, complete with the classic lines people love and remember combined with modern technology people expect on new boats today.”

Reis said displaying at shows like the Stuart Boat Show gives Bertram an opportunity to spend more time with customers.

“We can really connect better with our customers at some of the Florida shows,” she said. “It gives us a chance to let people who are familiar with our brand the chance to see how we’ve really come to back to our quality.”

The current owners of the company purchased Bertram in 2015 and relocated construction to a facility in Tampa where they even built new molds. It is now where service is done, and much of their sales is factory direct. The company plans to introduce a 61 sportfish later this winter.

Reis said a common boat show response is from a lifelong boater who remembers their first Bertram or always wished they owned one. Now they can.  

A Grand Time

Julee Jackson, a yacht consultant with Grand Banks, said the Stuart Boat Show will be a great place to develop sales leads for the Grand Banks 43 Europa and a Palm Beach 55 Express Motoryacht. The boatbuilder has been making connections with the Stuart Boat Show attendee for more than 20 years.

“We always get some sort of business from customers we meet at the Stuart Boat Show,” said Jackson who has worked the show many times. “It has really grown quite a bit over the past five years.”

Jackson said she has developed leads from boaters who live in the Midwest and the Northeast and who have learned that the Stuart Boat Show is a more relaxed environment to get to learn more about the boat they are considering.

“It’s not a busy show where customers get overwhelmed by all that’s going on,” Jackson said. “We’ll have two sales people on each boat at all times. It really gives us a chance to help introduce customers to all we have to offer.”

The Stuart Boat Show enables the Marine Industries Association of the Treasure Coast to showcase an industry which employs more than 5,000 at more than 400 businesses. Marine-related businesses contribute more than $600 million to the three-county area’s economy as part of Florida’s $10.3 billion recreational boating contribution to the state’s economy.

New this year will be the the INFINITI Lounge and Champagne Bar, located near the center of the show, where show-goers will be able explore the vehicles on display and engage with INFINITI product specialists who will show how each model fits with the boating lifestyle. The Bahamas Pavilion will feature a space showcasing resorts, marinas, the 700-island chain’s close proximity to the Treasure Coast and the best ways to get there while Junkanoo music fills the air adding to the island nation atmosphere.
