Default Tampa Bay Boat show

For those that have been before would you consider this a worthwhile event?

It’s is a decent sized show and a nice way to kill a day . We go occasionally depending on weather. ( if it is nice out we are type boating).

I go every year. They have a fairly sizable collection/array of boats in the convention center, and in-the-water. I'd say it's worthwhile. The one at the fairgrounds however? Negative ghost-rider.
fllawyer and RCL like this.

It is not a "mega show" but it has grown nicely every year and we really enjoy it. The St. Pete show in December is also fun. The venue makes it fun to be around the docks and looking at boats.

Are there any deals on boats typically?

I've seen some pretty good show prices, but of course it depends on what you're looking for.

Pretty sure the boat show at the fairgrounds is a boat show in name only. Made that mistake only once.

We've gone the last few years. 1 reason is for the guy selling crack on a cracker.

If your local to the show it's a good opportunity to talk to vendors and get hands on with things like electronics. And 9f course drool over some boats. Theres been some deals there, just have to know what your looking for.
