The Progressive New England Boat Show suffered from an attendance dip due to frigid weather and several feet of snow in the region, Trade Only Today reports.

Despite the weather, dealers reported that attendees were buying boats.

“The traffic is just OK, but the quality of attendee is good,” Hunt Yachts sales director John Hendricks told Trade Only Today.

Show manager Joe O’Neal expected double-digit attendance drop – partly due to the show’s closure on the opening day, Feb. 15, but he added that sales were generally up.

Michael Myers, of Boston Yacht Sales, said that the weather was “a drag.” “But I think there’s been good activity,” he said. “The mood is much more optimistic this year.”
