Strictly Jersey 2010 to be a 'new and different kind of boat show'

This is a three day show, Friday through Sunday, April 30, May 1 & 2, 2010.

Last year, South Jersey launched a new boat show specifically designed to appeal to the serious boat buyer. As its name applies, Strictly Jersey was open to New Jersey based boat manufacturers, dealers and companies that furnish products and services used by New Jersey's boaters. All together, some 23 manufacturers and dealers, and 28 land based vendors participated in the show.

Small by design, Strictly Jersey has taken a different approach to making sales for the State's boating industry. After all, New Jersey is the heart of boating in the Mid-Atlantic region with numerous manufacturers, dealers and businesses. The Show Organizers have invited like minded New Jersey Dealers and related businesses to join with them in promoting their products to buyers who are truly interested in them and have the financial resources or purchase them.

In a nutshell, the goal continues to be to produce a show that is strictly for boaters. This simple formula proved to be successful in 2009 and drove the decision to host a 2010 event.

Who will be exhibiting? New Jersey based boat manufacturers, dealers and businesses that are in the business of selling boating related products or services to New Jersey's recreational boaters and fishermen.

Who is the targeted audience? This is a boat show designed for knowledgeable and qualified buyers, who are serious about upgrading to a new boat or refitting their existing boats. Every in-water slip will accommodate sea trials, at dealer discretion.

When is it? This is a three day show, Friday through Sunday, April 30, May 1 & 2, 2010. Gates will be open from 10:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. everyday.

Where is it? South Jersey Marina in Cape May will host the event.

What is the cost? Complimentary tickets are available from participating dealers and manufacturers. The Organizers have made it possible for qualified New Jersey boaters (holders of a valid New Jersey safe boating certificate or Sea Tow Membership) to attend the show, free of charge. The non-boating public is welcome to attend the show. Admission at the gate will once again be $15.00 per person.
