Scene Report: The 2012 Chicago Boat Show

"Total attendance for the Progressive Insurance Chicago Boat, Sports & RV Show increased 7 percent despite slower days Thursday and Friday because of bad weather, the National Marine Manufacturers Association reported," Trade Only reports.

"The NMMA said 35,402 people attended the event, which ran Jan. 12-16 at McCormick Place. The show switched its date pattern this year, moving from Wednesday-Sunday to Thursday-Monday to take advantage of the Martin Luther King holiday."


Show highlights uploaded to YouTube this week by North Point Digital Productions:

"Segments of the 2012 Chicago Boat Show including the Scuba Emporium's intro to SCUBA which introduced over 400 to the world of SCUBA. Wakeboard professionals entertained the crowds with their Rail Jam. Many other features - too numerous to show them all - but a great time for all at the boat show."


Coming Attraction
"She is constructed of high-tech carbon fiber, measures 86 feet from stem to stern with a 100 foot mast and a 14 foot keel, and her biggest sail is 5,000 square feet. 'Ocean' is the largest sailboat ever to be displayed at an indoor boat show, and will be the Featured Yacht at the center of the Progressive Insurance Strictly Sail Chicago Show, January 26 - 29, at Navy Pier."
