The Detroit Boat Show celebrated its 50th anniversary this week at Cobo Hall in downtown Detroit. The event showcased more than 1,000 boats from 10 feet to 48 feet in length. There were boats for fishing, skiing, cruising, sailing and many other types at the exhibit.

Event goers ranged from savvy boat owners checking out what's new and hot, to newlyweds looking to indulge on a boat. For those who knew little about the boating community, it can be quite intimidating standing amongst these massive vessels.

But there are plenty of representatives from different dealerships to go through all the details.

Jeff Dzubia, of the Club Royale Marina dealership, has worked at the boat show for 10 years. According to him, the sluggish economy and winter weather has not slowed down attendance of this year's show.

Dzubia suggested that the Outback V model by Moomba Watersports would be ideal for someone who wants a moderately priced boat to just cruise and have fun on the waters.

Conversely, he suggested the higher priced, South Bay XBS by Crownline, for someone who was looking for a larger sized boat to accommodate more people.

One of the representatives at Wilson Marina dealership is Randy Wilson. Wilson has a lot of history with the company. His father was actually one of the founders of the business.

The fishing boats were a new addition Wilson Marina this year. The 2902 Trophy model was very popular among fishing enthusiasts.

Wilson recommended the GT 185 model for those on a budget but still looking to have a good time. It's reasonably priced but it still offers the same amenities as some of the other highly priced boats.

For those who want a boat for family outings of fun and relaxation, he showed us the Bayliner 175. The features are adapted to accommodate a family setting.

The show had something for everyone including entertainment for the children. Throughout the show room there were pirates giving kids tips on boater safety and magicians making balloons. The show also provided a designated area for kids only, where they could play while their parents looked at some of the luxury items that the boat show had to offer.

For those boaters who were willing to spend a $100,000 and up or just want to look Meriden Yachts brought all of their 2008 models to the show this year. All of the models had amenities that were equivalent to some small apartments including bedrooms, Bathrooms, kitchens, and living areas.

However, the 441 sedan is luxury at its best the boat offered the perfect combination of living space with out door space to appeal to most people.
