Update from the U.S. Sailboat Show

Lagoon Catamarans awards dealer, broker of the year

9 October 2010: Under cloudless blue skies, visitors of the 41st United States Sailboat Show enjoyed warm temperatures near 80 degrees and lots of fantastic multihulls of all sizes, including a brand new model from Lagoon and Gemini Catamarans.

At a private dinner held for its North American dealers during the show, Lagoon Catamarans named Fort Lauderdale, Florida-based “The Catamaran Company” as its Dealer of the Year. Another prestigious honor, Broker of the Year, went to The Catamaran Company’s Staley Weidman.

Performance Cruising unveiled the new “DesignTouch” interior with the 2011 Gemini 105Mc at the show which was seeing heavy traffic from show attendees interested in its affordable, family-oriented catamaran cruising appeal.

Seminars given by some of the most knowledgeable key note speakers among the world of recreational sailing educated attendees on a wide range of topics while icy “Pain Killers” – a favorite Caribbean Pusser’s rum beverage of sailors everywhere – kept everybody cool and in high spirits.

Immediately following the show on Tuesday, October 12, Multihull Demo Days 2010 begins its 13th Year.

For sailors in the market for a new multihull sailboat, next to the Annapolis boat show, this is the “can’t miss event” of the year. It’s one thing to see a prospective boat tied up at the boat show, but quite another to gain the full experience of how the boat handles under power, sail and while docking.

If you are looking to purchase a new catamaran or trimaran within the next year, Demo Days provides the opportunity to test a range of prospective boats in one day, under similar conditions and at no cost.
