As a multi-brand dealership with locations in Central Missouri and South Florida, Performance Boat Center has many hands to bring on deck for the Miami International Boat Show. And with the February 16-20 event split between two venues—the renovated Miami Convention Center and the Sea Isle Marina and Yachting Center across Biscayne Bay—the full-service operation will need every one of them.

Performance Boat Center will have two Sunsation Boats center consoles, a 32-footer and a 34-footer, as well as a Wright Performance 360 catamaran, in the water at the Sea Isle Marina location. All will be available for demo rides throughout the show, but company co-owner Brett Manire is urging would-be buyers to make reservations through the dealership as early as possible.
“People can reach out to me directly,” he said. “It gets really, really busy at Sea Isle during the show and if you make a reservation you can avoid having to wait at the docks until the boat you want to experience returns from another demo ride. Making an appointment before the show opens is a great idea.”
Performance Boat Center won’t have a display of its own in the convention center. But it will have representatives at the Cigarette Racing Team exhibit, where the Opa-Locka, Fla., boat-builder will showcase a 42 Auroris center console ordered by the dealership, and the MTI display as the dealership has both brands in its portfolio.
“I’m bringing all our guys, and we’ll be spread out all over the show as usual,” said Manire. “We have solid boat-drivers and solid salespeople, and we’ll move them around as needed.”
