The Triton


Triton hosts its biggest party of the year


The Triton turns 10 years old in April, and we’re celebrating with our Triton Expo on April 2. All yacht captains, crew and industry people are invited to join us.

If you haven’t been to a Triton event yet, this is the one to attend. Twice a year, we pull together 20-40 businesses and have a mini trade show of companies focused on providing captains and crew the tools and services they need to excel in their jobs and careers.

We’ll also have presentations from some of The Triton’s beloved columnists, a resume clinic staffed by captains and placement agents, live music and great food. Plus we’ll have cake to celebrate our birthday.

This spring’s Triton Expo is at National Marine Suppliers, a wonderful supporter of The Triton over the years. (Anyone in yachting any length of time knows there’s no better partner to have when it comes time to throw a party.)

“All of the Triton Expos have proven great opportunities for companies, and it’s an honor for us not only be a part of it but to host it this time,” National owner Dean Dutoit said. “Our location is convenient for everyone and it’s a little way for us to give back to the yachting community.

So come join your yachting brethren as we all come together on the first Wednesday in April at National Marine Suppliers (2800 S.W. Second Ave., 33315) from 5-8 p.m. There’s no RSVP needed. Just bring business cards, a resume if you want it critiqued, and a smile. We’re celebrating.
