The National Marine Manufacturers Association, which produces the show, reported 104,168 attendees this year, compared with 91,415 in 2010.
Strictly Sail Miami, however, was down 8 percent compared with 2009 - the last time it was held as a stand-alone show. A total of 18,122 people attended Strictly Sail, versus 19,723 two years ago.
'The atmosphere throughout the five-day event was positive, and exhibitors from both shows reported strong buying crowds and increased sales,' the NMMA said in a statement.
