AIM Media, publishers of PassageMaker and Power & Motoryacht magazines, is proud to present Power & Motoryacht University.

Taking place at the St. Petersburg Power and Sail Boat Show from Friday, December 6th and running through the weekend, Power & Motoryacht University offers attendees a chance to learn from, and mingle with marine industry experts on a wide range of topics.

"We’ve put together a curriculum of topics that will be interesting to any boater," said PMY editor-in-chief Jason Y. Wood. "Be entertained and informed in our live program, which is also an opportunity to get together and share some sea stories—and probably a few laughs—with us."

Power & Motoryacht University will take place at the Vinoy Renaissance St. Petersburg Resort & Golf Club, located at 501 5th Avenue NE, St. Petersburg, Florida. For more information and to purchase tickets, please click here.
