I wrote about PassageMaker’s TrawlerFest earlier, but didn’t mention their PassageMaker University seminar series. Offered in conjunction with some of the TrawlerFest shows, it might be of interest. I’ve added the TrawlerFest and PassageMaker University event dates to the News and Events above. A blurb from PassageMaker’s website included below:


Engage yourself in what you love most…the cruising under power lifestyle. PassageMaker University (PMU), formerly Trawler Fest University, is an exclusive two-day offering of courses taught by the industry’s leading experts. The in-depth courses provide the latest information, even for the experienced cruiser.
