Boat Debuts, Luxury Yachts, Workshops and More Filled Craneway Pavilion and Marina Bay Yacht Harbor

Thousands of sailing aficionados visited the 2016 Strictly Sail Pacific Boat Show in its new location on the waterfront in Richmond, Calif., from Thursday, April 7 through Sunday, April 10. The West Coast’s largest all-sail boat show filled the Craneway Pavilion and Marina Bay Yacht Harbor with new sailboats, gear, accessories, hardware, more than 100 seminars, hands-on workshops, advanced sailing classes, model boat races and more. 

“This was our largest display ever at the Strictly Sail Pacific Boat Show, and we were thrilled with our in-water island space at the new venue,” said JK3 Yachts President Jeff Brown. “The Moody 54 was the Queen of our display – we’ve sold four since its U.S. debut in January, and it continued to impress crowds in the JK3 display throughout the weekend.”

The four-day sailing spectacular featured all that was hot in the world of sailing including several debuts for showgoers. Turning heads throughout the weekend included the North American debut of the Dehler 42; West Coast debut of the Jenneau 54; and the world debut of the Hobie Mirage Eclipse, the first-ever stand up paddleboard, powered by pedals.

“The Craneway Pavilion was such an impressive venue – a great move for the Strictly Sail Pacific Boat Show,” said Mantus Anchors CEO Gregory Kutsen. “Mantus Anchors was busy all weekend with steady crowds throughout the show – vendors were happy and customers seemed pleased. We’re already looking forward to next year.”

The Strictly Sail Pacific Boat Show will return next year Thursday, April 6 to Sunday, April 9 at Craneway Pavilion located at 1414 Harbour Way S., and the nearby Marina Bay Yacht Harbor, in Richmond, Calif. The City of Richmond offers some of the best waterfront access in the San Francisco Bay Area, including more than 32 miles of shoreline with access to the San Francisco Bay Bike Trail connecting nearby Albany, Emeryville and Oakland, making Richmond the perfect host destination for all that is sailing.
