Showcasing Cruisers, Sportfishers, Yachts and Sailboats, New and Brokerage

Produced by the Duncan McIntosh Company, the four-day boating event will feature more than 200 new and brokerage boats of all types and price points, including trawlers, cruisers, sportfishers, sailboats, catamarans, motoryachts, along with shoreside booths offering the newest accessories and gadgets.

Show goers can browse through the many boutiques, visit the eateries and coffee shops, or simply enjoy the waterfront ambiance during their time at the show.

According to the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA), “Yachts and large cruising boats have experienced a resurgence since 2016, seeing gains between one and three percent. That trend is likely to continue as consumer confidence and spending remain strong.” (source:
