Stuart Event at Marriott Resort, March 5-9

Ticketing has begun for Florida TrawlerFest, which happens March 5-9 in the seaside city of Stuart. That means you denizens of the frozen north have plenty of time to plan a Florida vacation to coincide with the event. And if you happen to live in Florida…well…just mark your calendars.

The venue—for the third year in a row—is the Marriott Huchinson Island Resort and Marina. As usual we’ll have dozens of new and used cruising power craft at the docks, while the conference center will host 28 seminars to make you smarter and safer cruisers, which also means you’ll have more fun on the water. The Marriott is also an excellent place to socialize with like minded people both informally and during organized evening events.


The seminars include our popular “Everything You Need To Know About Diesel Engines” with Nigel Calder and Steve Zimmerman, “Boat Buyer’s Survival Guide” with several experts and an entirely new offering called “Weather 202, Advanced (Live)” with weather router Chris Parker. This course is the sequel to an online course offered by us at, also with Parker.

Check back regularly for closer looks at the seminars, some of which are brand new or reformulated.

BUY IN BULK FOR BEST VALUE: Every seminar except the diesel course, "Weather 202, Advanced" and “Boat Handling on the Water” are part of our VIP package. Being a four- or five-day VIP gives attendees access to their choice of 24 other seminars. The cost is $449 for a four-day VIP pass and $549 for the five-day pass. Visit our ticketing site and do some math. You'll see how being a VIP maximizes your seminar buying power.
