Slated for January 8-16, SuperCar Week 2022 will once again bring the best of the ultra-high-performance/exotic automobile world to the posh environs of Palm Beach, Fla. Among the participants in annual event was the late Larry Goldman, a well-known and beloved member of the go-fast powerboating world who died in 2017. In his honor, the organizers are adding the Larry Goldman Tribute Marine Village, which opens January 16 at the event’s West Palm Beach Waterfront location.

The founder of Extreme Marine at Haulover Marine Center in North Miami, Goldman was particularly well-known for managing the builds of the automobile-themed MTI catamarans commissioned his longtime friend almost constant boating companion Gino Gargiulo.
“While most attendees enjoy our special supercars, exotics, racecars and the world’s most significant automobiles during the nine days of Super Car Week each year, for us it’s truly about the people that we’ve met, the relationships developed and the kindness they’ve shown us,” wrote Neil London, of the organizers of SuperCar Week, on the event’s website. “One year, a friend brought a friend with their incredible offshore powerboats. Larry Goldman pulled in with his dear friend Gino’s boat with a matching Lamborghini at its side.”
The exotic boat-and-car combo was an instant hit with the SuperCar Week crowd, according to London, and those pairings became among the most eagerly anticipated elements of the show. While the specifics of what’s coming to the Larry Goldman Tribute Marine Village have not been released, the exhibit is sure to be spectacular as befits its namesake.
“Larry was no ordinary gentleman,” wrote London. “He was loved and respected by the entire South Florida high-performance boating community and offshore racing fans. His legacy lives on and continues to shine throughout the boating industry.”
