Fall is officially here and with it comes the start of the Wefing's Marine Fall and Winter Boat Show season. These shows are an opportunity for manufacturers and dealers to show off their new product lines in an atmosphere that is completely boat and boating related. This gives the consumers, our customers, our boat owners, prospective boat owners, and those who are just interested in what the recreational boating world has to offer these days (a LOT!) a chance to see the new models and meet with us while they consider what boat is the perfect one for them (it is one of ours, really it is.) Wefing's Marine has not one but two shows on tap for this coming weekend and we are about to tell you about both of them.
With new show dates for this year, the Tampa Boat Show, October 2 - 4, 2015 at the Tampa Convention Center promises to be a good one. This show is always one of our favorites, the venue is great, the weather in Tampa Bay during October is beautiful, the displays are always well done, the additional features and seminars are tremendous and the whole thing is excellently managed, making it a pleasure both for exhibitors and attendees.
This year Wefing's Marine will be showing our boats in the water, Slips 77 - 79. We will be showing a Rosborough 246, an Eastern 27 Islander, and a C-Dory 23 Venture Sport. Click name of each boat to open that listing on Wefing's Marine stock boat listing website.
Rosborough 246: This is the Florida debut for this model and we are excited to have had a hand in some of the design details as well as to have the opportunity to show -- and sell -- this fine vessel. Come see how small trawler yachts can be done right.
Eastern 27 Islander: The Islander line from Eastern is one of our favorite trailerable trawlers from one of our favorite boat factories. Eastern Boats are well known for quality and excellence of both design and build and this one we will have with us is no exception.
C-Dory 23 Venture Sport: We recently took delivery of three new C-Dorys, the first we have gotten out of the new factory, and we were very impressed with all of them. This smaller 23' model is a perfect example of downsizing without giving up the important things in life. This is the first C-Dory that has been seen at a Florida boat show in many years and Wefing's Marine is proud to have it.
The Naples Downtown Boat Show is a small intimate show located in downtown Naples, both in and next to the Municipal Marina and conveniently accessible by both car and public transportation. As well as ample parking near the show, Naples has free trams that will be running all weekend through downtown, past parking lots and garages, and to the boat show, which incidentally also boasts free admission! Naples is one of the nicest towns on Florida's West Coast and is home to our sister dealership Gulf Shores Marina and our partner, General Manager and Owner of Gulf Shores Marina, Ken Main II. Ken will be at the show, representing Gulf Shores Marina and Wefing's Marine while displaying and showing some of our joint inventory, namely a Rossiter 23 Classic Day Boat, a Rossiter 17 Closed Deck Runabout, an Eastern Sisu and a Seaway 27 Offshore Hardtop. Click name of each boat to view our listing on our online stock boats website(s).
Rossiter 23 Classic Day Boat: Your day may well have just arrived. The all new Rossiter 23 is a modern vision of that great boat you grew up with or wish you had grown up with. No one in the industry builds boats like this one.
Rossiter 17 Closed Deck Runabout: Powered by 90 horses, this new Rossiter can take the whole family out for a day of picnicking and water skiing or haul supplies back and forth with ease in almost any weather.
Eastern Sisu: Brand new Eastern Boats 22 Sisu in Midnight Blue. This boat has an Armstrong Bracket for the Yamaha F115 and cruises comfortably at 20 knots.
Seaway 27 Offshore Hardtop:This Downeast beauty is the latest offering from Seaway. Built on a hard chine hull, the beam on this stable boat is 10′.
So there you have it, two shows, two towns, two Gulf of Mexico ports, one weekend. If you are anywhere on -- or near -- the west coast of Florida this coming weekend, we've got a boat show for you. Bring the whole family or all the gang and come see what the world of recreational boating circa 2015 has to offer. It is a lot!
We also have a number of other fine boat shows already booked and, as always, we are constantly on the lookout for others that may have some interest for us and our customers. If you know of a boat show in the Southeast that you think we should consider in our schedule please let us know about it.
Thanks for your interest in Wefing's Marine. Come see us in Eastpoint soon or if you can't make it...
WE'LL SEE YOU ON THE WATER!
