With four models sold since its late-August 2017 introduction and hull No. 5 in the mold, the Wright Performance Powerboats 360 sport catamaran will be see display and demo action at the upcoming Miami International Boat Show Feb. 15-19. Performance Boat Center, the Osage Beach, Mo.-based full-service powerboat dealer in partnership with Doug Wright Designs of Melbourne, Fla., on the twin Mercury Racing Verado 400R outboard engine-powered 36-footer, is bringing two Wright Performance Powerboats 360 cats—one for display and one for demo rides—to the Miami event.

“We’ll have one on display at the Miami show venue docks,” said Brett Manire, who co-owns Performance Boat Center with Mark Waddington. “We’ll also have a slip at the Rusty Pelican restaurant docks, which are nearby, with another 360 so we can give demo rides.
“We’re keeping Doug Wright, Jr., and Doug Wright, Sr., very busy,” he added. “We’re booked out to June now with the 360. We also just sold a 32-foot Doug Wright raceboat.”
Performance Boat Center is taking a similar two-boat approach—display and demo—with the Sunsation 32 CCX performance center console.
“We’ll have one next to the 360 at the Performance Boat Center docks and another idling around all day and available for demo rides,” said Manire.
The dealership also will have an in-house-painted Cigarette 42X sportboat at the Cigarette Racing Team display, which according to Cigarette’s owner and chief executive officer Skip Braver will be even more elaborate this year.
“I wish we had more dock space—I really do,” said Manire. “But we’re looking forward to giving rides and seeing as many of our customers as possible in Miami.”
In addition to the 36-foot sport catamarans, Performance Boat Center is bring a pair of Sunsation 32CCX center consoles and one Cigarette Racng Team 42X sportboat to Miami.
